Wulfe, that’s some terrible luck with that other Nieuport, at least he didn’t fly into you. I thing a trip to the town is in order to take things off your mind. Raine, looks like no one wants you to fly those Parasols, even the Major. Carrick, remember - short bursts and carry a big mallet. Maeran, any landing you can walk away from ... those Aviatiks continue to be a thorn in the side. Very nice nacelle art.
30 July, 1916 06:00 morning mission Proville, Flanders Sector Kasta 17 Feldwebel Otto B von Kenobi 2 confirmed victories
Thankfully a new team arrived last night and the operations could continue. Gefreiter Joachim von Frankenburg was added to the roster. This morning two Rolands were being readied for a recon mission of enemy front lines near Arras. They didn’t get far though. It smelled bad from the beginning. It was an ambush. Three Nieuports attacked from behind as the two German machines were taking off. Obi”s Walfisch took a few hits but nothing serious and it was nothing compared to what the Roland team was dishing out. The French raiders quickly realized they were outnumbered 2:3. Yes, the odds were against them. Fortunately for the French, their machines were quicker and they could perform a tactical retreat at will. Otto attempted a pursuit but it was futile.
