Game 10 - RAF resources stretched
The RAF are having to deploy any aircraft that can fly... in this case a pair of Boulton Paul Defiants on patrol ,who have to deal with a pair of Me109's. Now if you know your WW2 aircraft you can see the problem here... in real life this didn't go well , how would it go..
It was set up as dog fight encounter amongst the clouds. As this game was based on shortages it saw the return of PO McMillan who had recovered from his previous encounter but was flying with only one good eye. He was accompanied by PO Scott.By dice roll the pair were bounced at short range as the German ace and his wingman burst through a cloud at close range.
|of all the angles to get bounced ...|
|however the Germans powered straight on , and pair of Brits engaged the plane flying past their companion,, .. ouch smoke was seen! result|
|I split the British pair up , turning in circles to try and see if I could get something on the German pair ..|
|As the Brits came back round from their circles , one Me109 was behind both.. PO McMillans gunner hit home hard and with bits flying off the Me109 the pilot was seen to bale out! .. result!|
shortly after the other Me109 blasted PO Mcmillans kite , wounding the gunner who could no longer fire . At this he tried to fly home , but the next burst downed the Boulton Paul , the pair bailed out,..
