Wings server last night
« on: August 02, 2017, 03:13:38 am »
A few of use were running successful flights... Recon, TG, Hangten, Scorp, Rel , and ???

I took a few targets out with my front gun (strafed vehicles, people and targets) with a PE-2, and one bomb. I only made on pass, decided not to hit 2x, and take the chance of losing all. So, I dropped my last bomb in the jungled while going home.

Was a good run for the short while I was on...   ;)

Ram stated: "A few of use were running successful flights... Recon, TG, Hangten, Scorp, Rel , and  ???"

Ram:

 ??? = Goshawk

Although I was not on for long, I got two missions in with damage to a factory complex, kept a fighter off Recon and had a brief encounter with a 109 from which he ended up dead and I ended up alive.
All in all, not a bad mission. Needed a tip from Hangten on how to be able to see myself on the mission map. Thanks for the tip, Hang.
Obviously practice is needed n this sim to avoid extreme frustration with the controls. Otherwise, quite fun!

In any AC with a rear gunner always set you gunners to engage at long distance ` F3 F1 F3 , they not only fire sooner but give you early warning of an enemy attack.  Make yourself difficult to hit, start by taking only enough fuel for the mission (I usually take 50%), then break twist, turn dive what ever it takes hoping that your gunners might get a hit or two or the bad guy stalls and augers in.

It's very fun when we get a group on and fly together !  The game promotes knocking out targets which is fun.

Need to get Wiley's game working and recruit Blasto to play!

Indeed - what's wrong with Wiley's game?  And yeah I agree, where's Blasto? :)


Edit - never mind, just saw his post. Wiley, get on TS and we can sort it out with you.
