    I will be on here keeping in touch with everyone and reading the AARs.
    That is terrible news Dale.
    My thoughts & Prayers will be with you.
    Please do keep us informed of your progress.

    I'm not sure of the origin of the original, or, how the rear arc is translated but if every other model can fire over the tail (and the BE2 could - I've seen pictures) then why is there such a huge a split arc ?! If it's because of separate side positions to the rear of the observers cockpit then the respective arcs should at least be able to fire alongside the fuselage & out to the wingtip shouldn't it ?
    The small front arcs do make sense due to the restricted los through the wires etc but it doesn't take note that there was a forward arc over the prop at targets above (according to McCudden).

    A lot will depend on the set up I suppose - I know which one I'll be going with ..!


    How's this for a gunners eye view !










    So pay yer money and take your choice, if I had the skills I'd draw one up for you... Large hint to anyone who can !

    Hi Dave! I have 2 x BE 2's one with the observer armed with a Lewis & that uses the standard wide angle rear arc
    The other has a Left wing/fuselarge mounted Lewis for the pilot with an arc like the Bristol Scout (a la the BE in "Wings") & the rear arc for the Observer.
    All fire 3 times before reloading.

    Dale, so sorry to hear your news. Hopes and prayers heading your way.

    I worked with a guy that had colon cancer ~20 years ago. He's still here and working 100% so there is hope to a good outcome.

    Hi Dale,

    Tough news to process mate, my thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Keep fighting the battles you have to fight, the tabletop front will be there when skies are sunnier.

    Cheers,

    Carl.

    Oh, no! I seriously hope things end up ok, eventually.

    Really sad to hear this Dale. Like the others my prayers go with you.
    Having said that, my Gran had Colon cancer when she was 55 and lived a full life into her mid 80s.

    Thanks guys for the encouraging words and prayers. I've heard from several people here who have had colon cancer and survived it. I'll be keeping an eye on the business going on here.

    Dave, I printed off the DYM Rules and noticed this:

    Morale:
    All aircraft will actively engage until they are:
    a. Within 3 of destruction, or,
    b. Within 5 of destruction if on fire, or,
    c. The pilot’s wounded on A deck 5 or B deck 3 (includes those with strong constitution) or,
    d. The engine is damaged,

    Does that infer it's a Not So Strong Constitution?

    That takes away most of the value of this skill.

    Strong Constitution:
    This ace ignores the effects of the first crewman hit special damage on himself.

    I would have thought Strong Constitution should negate this RTB on 5 or 3 wounding.

    Thats how I read it. You don't get the wound penalties, leaving for home, not being able to shoot on steep maneuvers and 1 extra card to fix a jam. Second wound still takes you out.
