When I did the ship hunting missions, I honestly thought I was there to simply escort some Stuka's, because let's face it, even with cannons, you just aren't going to fatally damage or sink a large ocean going ship!
I just stayed as high cover waiting for some RAF types to show up, (never did) and then flew back to the airfield.
The immersion factor went straight out of the window there and then I'm afraid frown

lol... if only 20mm's were needed to sink ships, then there would be no need for bombers or torpedo planes. The jerries could have saved themselves a shed load of money biggrin

Although my duties since returning to the Fatherland keeps me away from flying, I do get the chance to put in a few with 1 JG 2. We were flying at 20000 Trolling for English Fighters no luck today.

You could probably empty your guns into the bridge for the sake of immersion. A fairly common practise for those without some big boom boom slung underneath. (I doubt you'd get any practical value from doing so in game though but you never know, CFS3 had you strafing ships IIRC)

July 19,1940 My schwarm was covering bombers attacking a Convoy when We could see a/c down low fighting and zooming then over the RT came " Achtung Spitfires " Two fighters at 4 o clock and diving on us. As we scattered and twisted, I got off a shot then he was gone in a turn. I heard over the RT Falcon # 4 got 1. then it was reform and home.

24 Jul 1940.

Our mission was to attack shipping. Our cover Kette was attacked by the English. They were high and to the port by the time my kette swung around , my fuel was down to just above 30% . My kette flipped over and dove for France. I ended up landing at Le Harv AF out of juice. Top Cover lost 2 a/c for 3 claimed. Recommended to the Gruppe Commander to move all aircraft closer to the Channel. Our 109's don't have the legs this far back

Bailed out over the Channel after getting hit by fighters. My schwarm was on offensive patrol off Dippe whe I spotted two fighters high. Turning and climbing to chase 2 Hurricane types appeared on my six a Few hits later my eng was somkin and part of my wing fell off. Nothing to do but Bail Out.
No claims but we lost 2 more a/c. Lucky for me, I was picked up by a HE 115 and transferred to a Fishing Trawler.

Glad you made it! Always wondered what a realistic time was to get back in the fight...

It depended on the situation, but based on my readings for a lot of rescued English pilots it was same day delivery to their airfield if they were not wounded.

Im sure it was a similar situation for the Germans as well.

Bagged a fighter this afternoon, but by the time, I am flying a Replacement machine and it is worn down, I caught up to him we were over England so did a split "S" and went home amid Flack coming up.

On orders by Gruppe, I was to take command of 4 Staffel as their C.O. had been shot down over England. I had the enlisted paint a yellow 1 on my machine so I could be seen if the RT went out. After that, I took the Staffel up two times today over Boxhall and Hastings Trolling for fighters to come up. Nothing but Flack.
