Mission 5..Destroy an enemy Observation balloon that was troubling our forces.

A bit of a later start this morning: We took off at 07.45 and formed up, i was leader for this mission and we climbed altitude to 10,000 ft

I noticed the Obs Balloon from a distance away and dove down on it whilst my flight stayed above to keep an eye out for any enemy. The ground fire was quite ferocious and my craft was hit a couple of times..despite this i had a good big target to aim at and consequently managed to down the balloon. No enemy AC were seen and we had a pleasant flight back to base. My claim went in and was accepted..my 1st kill and a nice silver goblet was presented aswell, all in all a really good morning's work.

Thomas Muller Mission 6. Dec 1916 Habsheim airfield in the Alsace region...

An 8:05 takeoff with Ernst Udet once again taking us up, it was warmer this morning and the snow's look like it's melting slowly dark clouds were above and i knew it,d be difficult to spot anyone up there. It was a Sperrflug mission (Intercept) of some aircraft that had been bombing our troops, we were close to the enemy frontlines when Ernst spotted them 1st.(He,s got the eyesight of a hawk)
2 Caudrons were on there way back after there mission, I was instructed to take the left craft of the pair and proceeded to fire my guns..wow it soaked up my ammo but eventually i saw the craft spiral out of control, the pilot was lucky, id hit him and he was slumped dead in the cockpit, the observer/gunner less so he was still alive when i saw him jump out from 3000ft..i sight that will live with me for the rest of my days. the claim was confirmed and i got the credit i also received the "eisernes kreuz" 2 Klasse (Iron cross) but my award is tainted in what i witnessed, i was shaking when i left the cockpit but Ernst was quick with a stiff drink to try calm my nerves....

Still looks bleak and cold!... the game does set the scene for the player.
When I do these type of missions it always makes me feel cold and sometimes down in a funny sort of way.
And yet I never feel like that when the mission is set on a nice sunny day!!!

I'm with you on that pal, and I'm not sure of any other sim that captures the feeling of weather like WOFF does.
I honestly feel like that in RL too..I hate cold dark days (I work outdoors) so the more sun I get the better biggrin

As the Brits Say, 'Those are some real crackers Mate!' The plywood texturing is incredible. Agreed, it does look cold and foreboding.

Cheers Drew a new day with the snows finally gone, ive been bitten with the WOFF bug again and PE looks incredible.

Thomas Muller Mission 7... 20th Dec 1916 Habsheim airfield in the Alsace region...

A early patrol over the frontlines was the order for this morning,the heavy rain yesterday that suspended the flights had cleared the last of the snows. It was a absolutely beautiful morning, cold but the sunrise was a sight to behold.
Ernst was again our patrol leader and tensions were frayed after making an idiot of himself last night (He,d been drinking all of yesterday). Instead of the early night he decided to drink until the early hrs and he was like a bear with a sore head when he got his call at 06.15am

I dont know how he managed to take off but i made sure i watched him very carefully and he very nearly clipped the trees to his left hand side during take-off duh Not long after take off i noticed a couple of Caudrons above us. I signalled to Ernst that id spotted them and he looked to see. After a brief moment he signalled to carry on with our objective..I was flabbergasted, i couldn't believe that he wasn't going to get us climbing to meet the target.

I looked at him with disgust from the cockpit, it's a good job he couldn't hear my obscenities..
We continued to patrol the frontlines and the troops from both sides below were getting a serious pounding. No more opportunities arose during the flight and we landed..i couldn't help myself i jumped down and the mechanics had to keep us apart.
Christmas is coming up and i've never felt so low, it looks like i could be putting in a transfer very soon...

Thomas Muller Mission 8... 21st Dec 1916 Habsheim airfield in the Alsace region...

We had another dawn mission to patrol just over the lines, we were to protect our recon and artillery recon aircraft and also to attack any ground forces if any opportunity came up.
It was a misty dawn morning and the clouds above were dark and foreboding. We all took off and patrolled our area, no contacts were spotted and there wasn't much going on at ground level aswell..(the ground mist over the patrol area would have made it near impossible to see anyway)..We all landed safely for breakfast and a hot drink.

Thomas Muller Mission 9... 22nd Dec 1916 Habsheim airfield in the Alsace region...7.55am

A mission to patrol close to the lines, Ernst again took us up and the clouds like the previous day were dark and visibility was low. We circled to altitude and proceeded on our route.
We got within a few miles of the front when Ernst signalled..he,d spotted enemy AC ahead of us, il say this there,s nothing wrong with his eyesight. the number 3 in flight took the left hand foe who took him down a few thousand feet in a spiralling fight.
Both myself and Ernst took on the same target and i got in 1st and peppered the Caudron then Ernst appeared in front of me, what a fool !! i had to quickly bank or we would have both collided..the man's mad the Caudron,s top part of his wing split and our foe tumbled to the ground.
We landed and i managed to grab Ernst and land one on his chin, we both ended up scrapping in the mud and again had to be pulled apart, im sure there's going to be reprimands after this latest incident..Its 3 days until Christmas and my morale along with my nerves are shot. Im going to request some leave and a possible transfer before one of us kills the other.

Yea, I have never flown the N28 in WOFF either. I flew it in ROF, but the FM was always screwed and it never even flew like a turn fighter which, in my understanding from the reading I did, it was. Nice pics both of you, I am really enjoying them for a break from WOTR. biggrin

My Dad has this sim and it's been nothing but a headache since the latest upgrade. Some kind of bug with DirectX . He has to reinstall it everytime he wants to play it and I have no idea what it could be, it says that CFS2 is not required but putting it in the drive obviously helps. Anyone have a clue about this?

Hi KRT it may be better to ask over on the forum pal you'd definitely get a better response there. "CFS2" do you mean 3 ? Fwiw you don't need CFS3 installed or in the drive you just need to own it. Regarding direct x have you or your dad read the FAQ for WOFF ..it explains the install of direct x that comes with the sim. HTH ..best of luck and I sincerely hope your dad gets it up and running, it's an incredible sim.

Thomas Muller Mission 10... 23rd Dec 1916 Habsheim airfield in the Alsace region..7:05am

Balloon busting over the lines in a early flight, It was a wet cold morning infact we'd heard the rain bucket down all night and i hardly slept a wink we took off and didn't encounter any enemy along the way..in fact the skies are unnaturally quiet.
Towards the target area the ground fire opened up with everything they had, i was hit a few times but managed to down the balloon we were in good spirits when we landed and i put my claim in witnessed by 2 of my Jasta..Claim denied, Christmas?? Bahh humbug.

Got Them!

And they are down... Not far from my landing ground. If I hurry back I can grab a car and see if they are still alive!
Perhaps they will be in need of a stiff drink, Ja!
