Somebody throw me a bone here. Since London didn't pay the Ransom , we will attack.

And we have the first death of the campaign. Heinrich Stukel died on his first mission after an engine failure over England. He crashed trying to ditch in the channel less than a Km than France.

Yikes! That was quick, but not entirely unanticipated. I will be reporting on a similar but slightly less grim mission as soon as the video renders. Feel free to run another unofficial character if you like. I feel like we all might be joining you soon anyway... frown

Lt. Hans Falke
1/JG 54.

1st Mission.

Our Flight was acting as bait to bring up the English on their side of the Channel. We were swinging to and fro amid the Flack when I got some fragments hit my a/c and a thin trial of smoke poured out. A bad Start for me.
I was able to get pass mid channel when the Motor packed up. As I started down I spotted a German E Boat so Bailed out as I flew over him. I was gaffed and pulled out like a Fish.

Karl Weber did not survive his second mission. A support flight over Dover. With heavy overcast the action was down low.
Karl got to low and to slow and was shot up by a couple Hurricanes.
RIP.
I'll start an unofficial replacement tomorrow and see how it goes.

Oh NOOO!!! Stache has been one of the permanent stalwarts. I'll go down soon I'm sure....but meantime, 2nd mission....bagged 1 spit (yes it was already maimed and I finished it off....not proud but I'll take it)....noticed a 99% on the cooling system and headed home but had to bail out again close to home. The sim saw me rescued (again). Love the way this challenge puts an edge on things....very cool.

Yes, perhaps too edgy! A lot of near misses and deaths already! Sorry to hear you're down, Stache, but please continue with #2...

*edit* also, gaw, those 9Kb images are quite the thing! Do you have the bigger versions, by any chance?

Ok, Lets get this rodeo underway!

L. Rudolf Grebbs
August 15

Today we are to make an offensive patrol over southern England. We flew around for a while and wondered where the Brits were! There was no contact and all made it home safe.

August 17th

Today we are to attack a military base. Flew through a lot of flak and attacked the target. i saved a few rounds for the return trip but as it turned out I should have left them in England. Again, no contact with the famous Spitfire.

August 17th
Mission 3

Escort bombers to Harwich. Well the Brits finally showed up! We had a heavy engagement. I got behind one Spitfire and sent him down trailing smoke. Climbed back to altitude and found another of my flight and headed home. It seems the Brits took their toll today as we have 1 killed and 1 missing I put in my claim for a Spit but since I didn't see it crash and no one else did either it was denied.

Stash, hate to hear your man is out so early! It can happen to anyone at anytime.


Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear or a fool from either end.

MFair, welcome to the show! I think those "empty" missions might be the ones that save any of us that survive!
