Man, where have I been?? This thread's gettin' busy.... Duke, you switchin' sides so fast, the war will be over before its time....no more planes left to fly. ar15

I've been taking it easy with 25 RFC and trying to follow them one day at a time. Here's a short video I put together because I ain't any good at writing reports....

Best viewed in Full HD to see my commentary.

"Ace in the hole" haha!
Nice video and it looks even more polished then your last one.

AI gunners can be frustrating. They will only fire (as you saw) if the plane is banked to a certain level. Probably big climbs and dive also I imagine. Once you straightened out oh so slightly he opened back up.
I have actually never seen the gunner animation in action before. Very nice work by OBD.

When I fly my Brisfit my gunner rarely shoots as I am always hoicking around.

I especially liked switching over to the E.III's POV. You should video some more E.III action and splice it in, seeing as you dogged him for so long.

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. But in practice, there is.

Thanks Gents! salute

I'll try you suggestion next time Hauksbee. Seems like a good explanation to me, Duke.

Olham, Yeah, probably would have done it if the game had that option. biggrin

The continuing service of Ernst Ziegler:



19 Mar 1917 @ 08h06 Patrol of our lines east of Bapaume to Havincourt Wood

We had clear weather with haze in the distance and winds at 3 kn from the SW.
I lead the flight with Berr, Theiller, Gontermann, Sturm and Bussing accompanying. Eins flight sent Schneider, Baevers and Huber as top cover.

The flight to the lines was quiet but just as we arrived there I spotted 5 specs on the horizon and slightly lower than us approaching head on. I signaled to engage and so the dance began. I had several bursts on two different Nieup 17s which crossed my path while I was in pursuit of one craft. They were from Esc 67. I managed to down one of the enemy craft and continued on circling for others to engage. The skies cleared quickly and I was only able to locate two other of my squad. I signaled to rejoin and just as we accomplished this Berr broke formation heading towards Pronville, the nearest aerodrome. I elected to follow him and as we arrived over the field I saw that Berrs prop had stopped spinning. He made a forced landing just south of the field destroying his craft but was only lightly wounded for the effort. Bussing and I landed together safely.
I reported in to the RO lodging my claim and indicating the Berr also got one and asked to have him picked up. Later that day the reports came in that Theillers craft had suffered light damage and was forced down; Gontermann had destroyed his craft in a crash and was lightly wounded; Sturm had destroyed his craft and was only shookup but claimed one Nieup; and Huber of Eins flight had suffered heavy damage to his craft but was un-injured.

All in all we suffered the loss of three craft and damage to two other for the effort of downing 3 Nieuport 17s. Not good results overall.

Was that a cloud apparently stuck on the ground at the end of your video? I've never seen anything like that.

I suspect you are correct. It is the first time I have ever seen thar. I first though to myself "wow they have put in ground fog!". It looked kind of cool.

I have not seen the video yet but the use of ground smoke and gas attacks are modeled into the game.

Started off as a routine flight of 3 a/c ( Halb D-2s) in local area. As our Schwarm entered landing mode, 2/ 3 wing Sopwiths bounced my machine wounding me. Plot health was at 73 % so landed.

Watching the video finally that had the look of a graphics "quiggle."

Sure, an Albatros D.II is a huge improvement; the twin guns alone.
But the Halberstadt is not bad; it can even hold it's own against the DH.2.
Good luck, Carrick!

Yeah, I was too yep
Don't forget there is a Halb. DIII, visibility forward is a little better due to less plumbing. Seems a tad more powerful to me, but I think that is all in my head.

I usually hate the ground attack missions, but my last one was really cool. Normally, Flight A will fly top cover for Flight B while we get to do the dirty work, but today Flight A took part in the attack. We had eleven Sopwith Tripes pounding on the poor foot soldiers. During our attack we had three Albatri fly over and I'm sure they were saying, "Nothing to see here". biggrin

Here are some screenshots of the fun.



and one more.
