I flew two missions today. The first one was a bombing attack against British trenches, and we were even assigned a flight of Eindeckers from SK Sachsenberg as escorts!

Weather was terrible, and I think that is what saved us from all the usual trouble. We didn't see any hostile aircraft and apparently they didn't see us either, because the all too common slaughter in the clouds didn't happen in this mission.

I think the main reason for those extremely bloody missions I've experienced in my DID campaign is that the AI pilots see too well and behave too aggressively, as was already mentioned earlier in this thread. This also probably explains the ahistorically high kill numbers we're seeing in the DID campaign; another thing is that we have the tactical formations and doctrines of 1918 in the summer of 1916, which also results in a bloodier and more dangerous environment.

My second mission was a recon flight, but it was cut short only a few minutes after taking off by engine trouble, which forced me to land and end the mission prematurely.

A whole day without casualties in MFFA 2! I'm happy. smile
