    Aerodrome Raid

    Jasta 30 sent a flight of six Pfalz D.IIIas to raid the USAS aerodrome behind the lines across from them. They timed the raid when the aerodromeís planes were off on their own missions. The Germans didnít count on a neighboring squadron to be in the area when they got there.

    Jasta 30 can see the target aerodrome when they spot a flight of N28s heading their way.

    The red Pfalz turns orange and black. His risky maneuver distracted a pair of Americans but he paid for it.

    Bad luck for the American is good luck for the German. Just missing a chance to shoot frustrated the N28 pilot.

    The Americans were still a bit above the Hun and having a difficult time coming to grips with them.

    The aerodrome is gutted. Jasta 30 did itís work with pleasure and precision. The Americans did take down their share of Germans but the complete loss of all the hangars.

    The young American squadron did their best but could not stop the veteran attackers.
    Victory to the Germans!

    Good scenario with some much-maligned aircraft. Seems to make for a good matchup, this time around.

    With 3 hours game time and respawns I think it was inevitable. Next time I will make the hangars a little more difficult to destroy to give the USAS a chance.
