Remember AceofPengwin to fill out the status report today. I don't know if you saw in the rule section that we log our results every Saturday and I publish the status report on Sunday. Anyway, I don't want to miss your success in my status report tomorrow.


Thanks! filled it out. I also have the same question as Mudwasp though lol.

I think it depends if you bombed the correct target, then the mission should be considered a success. If you bombed some other target of opportunity then it is a fail. Some missions require you to destroy more than one structure for the mission to be successful. I would say the mission is success no matter what the CO says, as long you or your flight hit something in the target area (as shown in the debrief screen). Just like arty spotting - there is no way to tell if the mission was a success. To me it is successful if you got to the target waypoint, loitered for the requested amount of time and returned home, or at least landed on your side of the mud.

Already said the mission was a success, didn't state it was the enemy airfield of Fontaine, no mistaking that target.
I get confirmation of artillery spotted with no problem.
Same for enemy troop spotting . That is fun to do in the rolling mountains. cowboy

MW, I know WoFF will confirm successful arty spotting mission. And that's the thing. You could be doing barrel rolls instead of spotting artillery during this mission and WoFF will tell you the mission was successful. You have to use your judgment to determine if the mission was successful or not. In your case WoFF manager says mission was successful but your CO says it wasn't. What to do? Well, you apply the DiD Centenary Challenge (R) rule: if at least one target was destroyed by you or a member of your flight then the mission was successful.

MudWasp, to answer your second question, I only give myself that point if I was the one who destroyed the target, that may be harder than the rules intended but that's just how I play it. I think Fullofit is correct, just use your own judgement as to whether your mission was a success. In the long run, I don't think it really matters since the points are really for us and don't really serve any other purpose. I mean whoever wins this challenge will be the one who survives. I guess if we have more than one survive then the points might mean something, but really, what are the odds that any of us will survive?

Imagine, we could all be flying using VR goggles of some kind by 1917.

Patrol: I went up solo today. flew up to the lines then the enemy gunners started shooting so I flew back to the field. I had kept looking high since the Adj told me that's where the ones u don't see come from. No contact.

Here's someone who transferred into our Esc. today.



I'd better keep my I on this one. He looks like a pro.

I came back alone from the 2 a/c Patrol, there was a fight. We happened on 2 Recon types near the front. Sgt Bocare followed one and I chased the other. My target a 2 seat type was in a shallow right turn towards his lines. I got under him and gave him a drum full. I Eased off the power and Reloaded. emptied another drum load into his Belly then smoke fire . No one around to see it so I guess it will be unconfirmed. My wing mate landed later with light damage and No kill.

Journal Entry: November 8, 1915
St. Pol-sur-Mer

Fabio was killed today. He had been assigned as my wingman only yesterday, and I hadn't had a chance to teach him any of my tactics. He was an experienced flier with many hours logged, but in the heat of combat I can only imagine he lost his head. Anyway, here is how it all happened. I was leading Fabio and Roderic on the morning patrol up near Loos. As we were approaching Loos, I spotted a couple of the new Hun monoplane machines. Well, I had been hoping for such an opportunity because I wanted to see how our new buses would perform against the Huns best machine. I signaled the flight and we swooped down on the Huns. They must have spotted us as we were diving on them because they began evasive maneuvers. I had no difficulty staying on the tail of my Hun and it wasn't long before he was spinning towards earth. After taking care of him, I turned and soon spotted Fabio engaged with the other Hun. I can only assume that Fabio was so consumed with destroying this Hun that he lost track of his closing speed and collided with the Hun. Something must have damaged Fabio's engine because his plane burst into flames almost immediately and they both spun into the ground. We were so low that Roderic and I circled the area thinking that maybe Fabio could survive, but no, he must have been killed on impact. Damn this war, it would be one thing had Fabio been killed by enemy action, but to be killed by a simple mistake.

Those E1's are filling up the skies rather quickly. I feel the scourge is about to begin. BTW Gustav Leffers is now flying an E1. Payback time.
