Might just be my odd opinion, but spouse duty sounds worse to me.

This just occured to me. The log might be showing the 16th because he flew on the 15th (today) and WOFF advanced a day, then a screenshot was taken.
Possible?

OK, I just noticed I flew one day ahead, but it is not my fault. I woke up, noticed the date on Roberts video post and thought, "we have planes, I can fly." So any blame or punishment rests squarely on his shoulders for if it was not for him I would not have broken the rules come hell or high water! biggrin

congrats on the medal Carrick!

You know, I always felt that we should drop the bombs before dogfight engagements because of the added weight. What I don't know is if it has any impact on flight characteristics in WOFF. Somebody chime in here if they can confirm anything related to this.

"Ace" Snodgrass is good, Carrick! I see you are carricking on. Take care, man!

Offzstv. Bernhard Harms
Kasta 18, Pronville, 15. August 1916

Yesterday our Staffelfhrer called me into his office; he asked me, if I would be interested in transfering
to one of the new Einsitzer units, which are getting installed these days. These units shall be called
"Jagdstaffel"; and all along the front good pilots with aerial victories are getting asked to transfer.
These Jagdstaffeln will soon receive new single-seat biplanes, and they will operate in flights of six
or more scouts, to take out as many enemy reconnaissance aircraft as possible.

I had time to sleep it over, and after breakfast this morning, I signed for a transfer to the newly created
Jagdstaffel 1, which they hope will be operational by mid-August. They will fly from Bertincourt, and I heard
they will receive the new Halberstadt. That should be an Einsitzer with good speed and firepower - if they
will have me, I will be a hunter of enemy aircraft.

I could prove today, that I might be the right choice for this job. Today, while we were flying through
thick grey clouds, we got jumped by a single British Nieuport 17 with a Lewis machine gun. We had not seen
it's approach at all. When I sighted it, it was in strike distance. I pushed the stick, dived like hell,
and came up almost vertically behind the Englishman. Three Rolands were dancing with one scout now.
When they all descended quickly, I remained higher and could finally attack the Englishman from above.
I hit him, and now he prefered to run for his side of the lines. We let him go, as we were all pretty
low by now, and travelled back to Pronville.

This is becoming epidemic...something has to be done about it! Hearing this, Achille is now trying to sneak out of the hospital and return to his airfield. biggrin


Dogfighting is what you do "after" you drop your bombs and blow something up!

I noticed the difference in OFF.
Haven't bombed enough in WOFF to say for sure.
Try it out in Quick Combat...let us know what you discover.

The combat instructions for the 1 Strutter definitely say you should drop ordinance if EA appear. It also says you should fly with less fuel as 100% is too much. I am down to 70% now and still land with lots left.

I also fly the Strutter with reduced fuel though I am not 100% sure it makes much difference in terms of performance. I drop the bombs if I have to dogfight but I do that more because it is historically accurate to do so.

Olham, I hope Bernhard receives that transfer he is wanting. I am sure he will make a fine scout pilot.

Robert, you made note of how Squadron Commander Ward's DH.2 escorts never returned to provide his flight cover. Captain Burroughs has noted his flight turning away from their assigned escorts and heading back home on several occasions while he's had to continue on as the lone protector. A most unsettling situation.

Carrick, congrats to 2nd Lt. Snodgrass on his DSO, (cough cough, means nothing, cough cough, sim fluff, cough cough). Just kidding. Drinks are on Ace everyone! Not kidding.

CatKnight, looks like young Dudley did just fine getting back home on his own, though plowing straight through that large cloud may not have been the best idea. They can twist you up a treat if they choose to.

LtCasey, as noted here by others, the N11 is a much better mount than the N16, so I wouldn't be to quick to wish the former gone. Maybe you can jump right to the N17 and avoid the dud altogether though I doubt HQ will be so kind.


Wonderful reports and stories and screenies everyone, and as always thanks for sharing them here. My morning coffee always tastes that much better when I can sit and catch up with everyone's adventures.

I flew one long solo recon mission today. Nothing happened and I didn't even see any other aircraft, friendly or enemy.

When I returned to base, I was informed that the other flight of two Aviatiks was lost with four dead pilots and observers. Fortunately we had enough new replacements to keep flying, but only barely. I'd have hated to become grounded again!

My records show that since I started this DID campaign on June 17, MFFA 2 has suffered the following losses:

52 men dead
8 men wounded
26 Aviatiks destroyed
12 Aviatiks damaged

Thank you all, guys - no idea how long a transfer may take, Lou.
Hasse, I bet they didn't have such high losses throughout the whole real war.
