Debrief:  ZZ and CL paired up on secure channel.  BS and YT practiced ground attack and touch and goes.  After 45 minutes ZZ and BS pared up for tactics training and CL and YT paired up for fighter formation landings. The final 30 minutes CL and YT in red and BS and ZZ in blue.  Red did well this time around 4 sorties [B25 x 2, P38 x 2], no losses.  Blue 4 sorties [A6M x 3, ME 262 x 1], no returns.  Red got lucky.

After Training Report

Muster: BS, CL, YT, ZZ

Debrief: Strange beginnings.  At the start of this mission only YT, and BS could see all the aircraft and home bases.  CL and ZZ could see only one base -- Utupua, and only one could get an aircraft, AND only one aircraft was available [B25 for CL and F4U for ZZ].  The game was relaunched several times by both YT and CL to no avail.  Then BS spawned in behind one of the static aircraft so once again the game was relaunched after removing all static aircraft.  Voila! Further investigation revealed that YT and BS had the static SB2C mod loaded and the game had a single static SB2C at Utupua field but ZZ and CL did not have the static SB2C loaded!  So get that mod loaded and I will add it to the required mods list.

Once that was figured out we settled into a night of pilot qualifications as follows:

BS: P38 Lightning, P61 Blackwidow, P51Mustang

CL: F2A Buffalo, F4F Wildcat, P38 Lightning, P47 Thunderbolt, F6F Hellcat

YT: SB2C Helldiver, TBD Devastator, P61 Blackwidow

ZZ: F2A Buffalo, F4F Wildcat, P40 Warhawk, P51 Mustang, P39 Airocobra

Resked part Deux 140715

Hvy rain, thunder, lightning. Some outlying areas still without power from two days ago!  Sorry guys.

Resked for 140710

After Action Report

Muster: BS, GW, YT, ZZ

Debrief: YT had computer issues and GW graciously assisted.  Both BS and ZZ waited with incredible patience.  Thanks gents, you are all Princes.  The mission tonight had two twists.  First, USMC 4FU squadrons were launched from a recently liberated ground airdrome.  These Corsairs were brought in a separate Task Group [TG 50.8 Logistics Support Group] specifically for this purpose so no CV, CVL, or CVE was shorted.  During the war, nearly 100 Escort Carriers[ CVE] were built and many were used specifically to shuttle needed aircraft to shore stations and carriers and then return to the United States for another load.  My source for this mission lists these CVEs: USS Attu, USS Admiralty Islands, USS Bougainville, and USS Windham Bay.  Second, the Japanese sent in Zeros to sweep and distract the CAP from downing intended Jills, and Judy kamikaze aircraft.  Some of the kamikazes targeted outer screen destroyers and we were not able to get to them in time.  Although several were hit, none sunk.  Those that were targeting the inner logistics and amphibious landing areas were ALL knocked down by the four of us, including the zero sweepers.  Again, another well done mission.  Reminder:  YT will be out of town during next week so no formal missions.  Training can be done if VC actual [BS] so desires.  Please keep a muster of who attended such a session for the record.
