In the old days (we're talking RBII here) I used to gleefully dive down on a virtual opponent in my trusty Noop and launch a fusillade of le Prieurs. It always felt wrong ie ahistorical, but it was great fun.
And this morning, here I am reading
"Ball and Walters found that their balloons had been taken down, so they attacked a formation of LVGs and Fokker D types to the NE of Bapaume. Ball fired all eight of his rockets at one of the Fokkers from a range of 200 yds, but missed. He then closed to 50 yds and fired half a drum of Lewis. The Fokker went down to crash just east of Beugny. Walters had better luck with his rockets, hitting one of the LVGs in the fuselage and setting it alight, the burning machine finally crashing near Bapaume."
So, carry on doughty rocketeers. It's ok
