Hey, try Alsace in 1918 if your PC struggles with frame rates in sections that have a large ground war ongoing.


Mud Wasp,
Alsace works just fine for me. It actually runs faster in 1918 than Flanders in 1915 during an offensive. It's a quiet region, where nothing happens and with all the forests your biggest worry is where to put down your wounded bird without crashing.


Plenty of pretty birds to take from the air down there.
Quiet....?

Well...Relatively quiet.

The connecting rod out of my brain, my brain,
From out of my arse take the camshaft,
And assemble the engine again."

St. Pol-sur-Mer

They say that patience is a virtue; they also say that good things come to those who wait. Well, they are right. Today while we were enjoying our lunch, the adjutant came and whispered something to the CO after which he exclaimed, "Splendid", he then arose and left. Well naturally, we got up and followed him. We stepped outside just as a large number of lorries were arriving in front of the hangar area. Once the commotion had died, the CO announced to one and all, "Gentlemen, our new kites have arrived. We will be turning in our Moranes for the new Nieuports". Pandemonium ensued, we were acting like boys on Christmas morn. When we had settled down a bit, the CO explained, "Half the squadron will be fitted out with the Nieuport 11, while the rest will be given the Nieuport 10C1". He also stated, "Everyone will eventually get an 11 when they become available". He gave instructions for the kites to be rigged and ready for tomorrow's sorties. Here are a couple of photos of our new planes.





Lost in all of the hubbub was what will happen to our observers. I told Edmund and Tom that I would use all of my influence to get them into pilot training if they were interested. They both expressed that desire and I spoke with the CO and he readily agreed. They will be transferring out in a few days. It will be very lonely without my two trusty observers. If the truth be told, I know I couldn't have made it this far without either of them.

Seems like in all of the excitement regarding our new machines, nobody noticed until later, the new guy that had also arrived. I introduced myself and learned that his name is Roderick Dallas, seems like an okay chap. We'll see if he makes anything of himself.

I'm having difficulty putting into words what a difference flying the Nieuport is from all of my previous flying experiences. Until today, I don't think I've ever really flown. Oh technically I've flown, but this machine is as different as night is to day from all of the previous aeroplanes that I've flown. The French call this plane BeBe which means baby because of it's size, but I think a more appropriate name would Butterfly because it flits around like one. It is in every respect better than the Morane, it's faster, it climbs faster and higher, it's more agile, and finally it has a forward firing machine gun. Needless to say, I'm very pleased with my new kite. Oh by the way, we didn't see anything on our sortie, but I didn't particularly care.

21 Oct 1915.


Posted to a combat hop for Line Bombardment, What a sitter. My how things have changed around here. My flight had a Pursuit escort. They used a ship called the N-10 for part of the way. After seeing them, I put in for a Transfer using my Naval Reserve Rank for a posting to RNAS 1.

emmmm a small problem.

I just sent Basils stuff through and then went in again for Basil von Borste. The page after filling in the aircraft type for the Kaiser is asking me for a RFC rank and aircraft ....so I cant finish the report for von Borste.

danke.

Lederhosen, I'll look into it tonight. Are both of your pilots named the same?

Basil Brush

and Basil von Borste

it wasn't a problem before, but then the reports themselves have been changed, i.e....hours logged and number of claims (not kills).

Yep, I added the other stuff, the other pilots wanted to see a little more info. As a matter of fact, if there is anything that I can add that you think would make the reports better then just let me know.

Lederhosen, I've fixed it but check to make sure. I may be a programmer, but obviously I'm not a perfect one. banghead

Sgt. Cadallader is dead; spontaneous engine fire. Disheartening after 20+ missions.

loftyc, that's too bad. I personally think the engine bursting into flames in WOFF happens too frequently.
