:salute: Tally Ho!

16th July 1940
Spent day at 5mins readiness, no convoys through the eastern Channel so Jerry took the day off, sending only a token raid at the Western approaches.
Some new Hurricanes arrived to replace our losses from yesterday.

17th July 1940
Another quiet day, some scuffles off the Anglian coast but nothing in our area.

18th July 1940
Another dull day, weather dull too.

19th July 1940
7:30am take off to patrol convoy COWBOY off Beachy Head. Fairly uneventful flight, few quirks to work out with the Prop pitch on this Hurri, kept changing even when I wasn't touching it (stupid thing went back onto AUTO) made it very hard to keep formation. Landed back at West Malling about 11am-ish.
Thought Jerry had taken the day off but a big do was picked up on radar at just after 18:00, we scrambled at 18:22 and met a load of 110s and Stukas over the Thames Estuary gunning for convoy CRUSTY. I got one, then met up with Red 2, having lost contact with the CO, to find another flight of 110s. Tackled one but clipped him during close maneuvers and lost starboard wing, bailed out over Canterbury way and got a taxi back to West Malling. We lost six aircraft and five pilots, including the Skipper, but claimed 18 109s, 21 110s, and 19 Stukas split between four squadrons which intercepted. My personal claims now stand at three 110s.
First sortie, standard patrol over the convoy.
Coming in to land, my first squadron landing...surprisingly organised, IL2 could learn from this. Still glad that Friendly collisions are off though...
Landed and taxi-ing
43 Squadron at RAF West Malling
Second sortie, turning into the furball, if in doubt follow the flak!
Diving on some Stukas, gave one a quick blast as I went past, but nothing came of it.
Chasing my first 110 of the day
Which the markings tell me is from ZG26
But not any more, he went straight in, no chutes. :nope:
The second 110...literally seconds after taking this picture...WHAM
Blacked out briefly, came to and found my Hurri was missing something...
So left the office rather quickly. Heard two explosions, my Hurri and the idea if the 110s crew got out. Given how they weld them into their planes I fear they did not.

Battle of Britain II: Wings of Victory + the latest BDG community patch.

Yup, the AI routines in that are much better than either 1946 or CloD

:agree: And a pair of RoF screens with my fav new and old machines.
I had transfered from Esc N.3 to Esc N.26 to get a chance to fly the SPAD 7, not much of a transfer to be honest considering that Esc N.26 was based at the same aerodrome as Esc N.3 so it was more like taking my bags from one tent to another on the other side of the field.

Meh, its just a scratch. You can still fly her.:arrgh!:

Dammit_Carl! 02-05-13 09:06 AM

(Looks at the missing wing)

Just trim it out, bro.

:har: That is one of the best DCS vids I've seen in a while. I've had bits of my Hog missing and still flown successfully (as I can!), but never that much wing!

GSpector 02-05-13 12:20 PM

Not sure but I'm thinking your current direction is ALSO something to worry about :o

Oberon 02-05-13 02:21 PM

Love that vid, sadly the Hurricane isn't quite as forgiving as the Froggie, particularly when stuck in a downward spiral. :haha:

Decided to fire IL2 up again the other day.

Still looks great.
How was your flight? :salute:

Lord_magerius 02-17-13 07:11 PM

Managed to bag two TB-3's before having to limp home with a badly damaged engine and missing a horizontal stabiliser from my tail.
