After Action Report

Debrief: What a smack down. First sortie all the airfield AAA was taken down along with 12 aircraft destroyed and about 25 damaged.  In addition, half the oil tanks, a hanger, and the runway were damaged and everyone made it back to mother, two without any damage to their aircraft!  Great job.

After Action Report

Muster: BS, CL, YT, ZZ

Debrief:  We were successful in pounding Omura airfield into dust and cinders. Of the 100 aircraft on the field, we destroyed 83.  There were also 7 flak guns and when we left, on one was still firing [75mmAAA].  The lesson learned was identify early and destroy their air defenses and the airfield will be at our mercy.  Fighter sweep should be the first in to accomplish this goal with guns and rockets, followed by the larger, slower bombers. Just saying skipper. The combat doctrine for combined arms might need revision.

Note: the SC2C Helldiver is not equipped with the YE beacon to get you back to the carrier.

Debrief: Once again we achieved our mission.  We had two rows of Japanese Light tanks and 20mm north of Shuri as our primary objective.  We took everyone of them out.  In addition, there were three Judys threatening Bunker Hill. All three went down before reaching CV-17.

Mission: 397

Campaign: Ground Pound 

Target: Close Air Support Okinawa

Date: 11 May 1945

All of Okinawa is secure, except Naha south where the Japanese are dug in deep.  USS Hancock and all her aircraft -- Hellcats, Corsairs, Helldivers, Avengers -- are called upon to assist in rooting them out.  Be careful, there are still 20 mm guns and 37mm tanks in there.

Debrief: After YT and CL had to wrestle with their computers for a few minutes, we got started. Everyone was in game at 2000 so the fighter jocks got into the air and began a sweep of the coast of France.  Me 109s were present.  It took YT and the Bomber Group about 30 minutes to get to altitude and rendezvous over Gatwick and then begin the trip to Rouen from Brighton.  Flak was moderate, and the little friends kept the wolves at bay until the IP.  Flak and 109s took down two of the first group and all of the second group.  YT got over target and delivered his load but not until he was hit by CL, who lost his engine.  YT got hits -- just like riding a bicycle.  After the ET, CL found YT.  His gunners hit him and with oil on his windscreen CL flew into YT starboard wing -- just like in the movies.  YT and CL got out.  Both re-spawned in 109s so it was BS and ZZ red and CL and YT blue with red and blue ai a/c.  At least one Fortress made it back to home base. After the fir-balling BS was the high score, thanks to CL kill of a friendly. We missed our 20th BG mates tonight. It was good to get into some early war aircraft for a spell.

Patch 4.12.2 with HSFX 7.02 installed does not have superchargers and the Bombsight conversion computer does not work in game!  That sucks.

Mission: 396

Campaign: VE

Target: Rouen France

Date: 12 Dec 1942

This will be a repeat of one of our 303rd Bomb Group Missions over France as a remembrance of the war in Europe.  Please let me know your preference: B17, P47, Bf 109 for mission planning.  If I do not hear from you by Monday-- I get to make the decision!  We few dozens of these missions years ago, so for old times sake -- man your planes and fly a few practice flights.

This was Mission 56 flown on 16 Jan 2010 by Banshee [Escort], Essex [B17], Talon [B17], Yorktown[B17], Neuro [109], and Zightz [Escort].

If you are flying a B-17, you need to be ready to roll at 2000 sharp as it will take about 30 minutes to get to altitude and near the English Channel.  Escorts will meet us at the coast from Tangmere aerodrome.  There will be time for early fighter pilots to fly Spitfires and do a sweep of the French coast prior to the B17 Group needing escorts.
