Rusty nuts and threaded bolts are what that part of my mind is like. A little liquid lubrication works wonders, but too much creates a Cluster F&*(@ed mess.

Thanks for the encouragement my friend.

MudWasp, that was fine. Some of these guys should be professional writers, so I learned not to try and compete because I'm just not that good of a writer, instead just tell your story.

Thanks guys.
Achille had a few victories prior to this one, but all unconfirmed. This one ironically was confirmed with no witnesses.
The Hun was skimming the tops of the trees. Trying to avoid radar? My initial thought was to fly on top of him and force him into the trees, but thought better of it. I still needed my wheels to land, this being DID. We both gained some altitude once my observer started shooting. Of course he could not reciprocate on his Aviatik.
Then something I've never seen the AI do before happened. He dove under me and stayed there, trying to match my course. My observer had no clear shot. With the low altitude he could not do this for long and eventually I pulled along side him and my observer finished him off with a burst from his MG to the tune of La Marseillaise. This sim never stops to amaze me.

You can fly lower than ea in WOFF...if you can still fly after an EA engagement that went wrong. I like rivers with army bases nearby when being the mouse.

Sgt, Almost There
RFC-3 Sqn
Auchel
Flanders, France.

June 25, 1915.

Went over the lines to do a bombardment, Jolly good show our 2 a/c flight put 2 near the target. The Morane that we fly in the Sqn seems slower and wider in the turn than a Be2, but the Lewis Gun in the back is Wicket.

Maybe somebody can answer this for me, did the 1 RNAS historically not perform any bombing missions? I haven't had a single bombing mission, all I get are recons and line patrols while some of you seem to do quite a few bombing missions.

I've not seen a bombing mission with 1 RNAS yet either in 48 missions. Though it may be because our BEs aren't equipped for bombing. Ambrose gets quite a few bombing missions in his Morane.

You're in a Morane now, and as will be seen when Alice gets her letter tomorrow, so is Alvin. A dozen missions in that deathtrap should show if it's just the BE, or if the RNAS doesn't believe in bombs.

Sgt. Archer Sterling is dead. he was trying to in in close position so that his crappy gunner might actually shoot at and hit the Aviatik, and there was a fatal collision.

Right before that, he noticed something weird that might be his gunner's problem: should the Lewis gun's aiming vane be pointing downwind, instead of into the wind like it is?

I didn't think that vane thingy on the end of the Lewis actually did anything. I'll check when I fly next.

In the sim it is indeed static; in real life, it swiveled to allow deflection. I was just thinking that if it is to be permanent, it at least should face the other way. Just a little thing to look at some day when there's nothing else more important for the devs to work on.

loftycSorry about Archer. It looks like a long war to me.
