View Full Version : Mission #1

...and the planes begin their takeoff roll!

I've only completed the first plane so far, but will do a bunch of them this weekend. Talisman has graciously agreed to assist with portions of the paperwork (pause for round of applause), so either he or I will be posting the other planes as they fly. I expect to finish many of them this weekend.


A note for you gunners:

1. If you "hit" an enemy plane, it means that you caused damage that will affect its attack ability, but not enough to make it break off and leave.

2. If you "damage" an enemy plane, it means that you caused enough damage that the plane will leave as soon as it makes one run at you, but you also severely affected its ability to hit your plane.

3. If you "kill" an enemy plane, it's a confirmed shootdown and you can paint a swastika on your flight jacket.


Ready? The Tequila Rose is cruising toward the first U.S. bombing mission in Occupied France.

Rain Man note: Wow, that was an absolutely brutal maiden voyage. It was very unusual too in the number of hits the crew took relative to the plane itself. Usually the plane takes the brunt of the damage.

I'm presuming that it was caused more by the leg flying up into the radio room.

Losing that tail gun in the first pass really opened them up to be filleted later in the bomb run.

I am curious as to how a bullet can fly through the cockpit, miss Frazod and hit Jamie who is like a fourth Fraz's size? That must be some real bad luck!

Jamie was a good kid, went way before his time. We will miss him (well everyone except Fraz who was getting sick of Jamie trying to tell him how to fly).

That's actually pretty normal. I don't know what the hit rate is right now, but I would (unscientifically) guess that over time both the Americans and the Germans should average about a 25-35 percent hit rate. Maybe it's just a bit low starting out.

Special Ed weighs the situation. He can abort the mission with his copilot severely wounded and the intercom out. However, with lots of fighters in the area, dropping out of formation with no intercom could be very dangerous. Without the intercom, he does not know immediately that his navigator and bombardier are also wounded, so he opts to stay in formation and complete the bombing run to maintain the protection afforded by the other B-17s.

Despite taking a strong hit from mmaddog, the damaged Me presses into Deep Red and does the now infamous strafe across the entire fuselage - 6 hits!
-superficial damage to tail
-hit on waist knocks the ball turret gun out of commission (mmaddog is uninjured and turret is still operable, but mmaddog must stay in place to keep heat and oxygen. He is now a spectator unless another position opens up.)
-superficial damage to port wing

Morphius slows down, unsure of the extent of damage to the structure from the last three hits. Several other undamaged B-17s slow down to help provide cover so he doesn’t have to drop out of formation.
Mmaddog moves up to pilot’s seat to ride along and help morphius if needed.
Bad weather sets in, so hydrae has to guide the plane since it’s no longer with the main body of planes.

Zone 1: England

The B-17 base is socked in by rain. Morphius must make a landing in bad visibility with slightly damaged control cables. Welcome to the pilot’s seat!

Boy, you're just asking for them to re-open the investigation, aren't you? And you should be happy that you weren't sitting in the pilot's seat.

(Oh, and yeah, sure. We'll bend the rules a bit as long as RednFeisty doesn't mind starting out as a waist gunner. We can't deny the crew their promotions.)

Plane #18 – Fooooo Fighter


Pilot NaptownChief
Copilot Tommykat
Bombardier PastorMikH
Navigator Mr. Christopher
Engineer B2chiefsfan
Radio Op. Adam
Tail Gunner Amnorix
Ball Turret Gunner KC Kings
Right Waist Gunner el borracho
Left Waist Gunner NewChief

Target: Cherbourg, in sunny western France
Mid-formation both horizontally and vertically (low vulnerability)

Zone 1 Out: Britain
No enemy

Zone 2 Out: English Channel

1 Me109, 1 Me110 attack – Me 110 driven away by fighters

Pastormikh fires, misses
B2chiefsfan fires, misses
Mr. Christopher fires, misses

Me scores 2 hits
-hit to waist knocks out the heating element on newchief’s flight suit. Newchief is uninjured but can only fly another half-hour at altitude before the risk of severe frostbite sets in.
-superficial damage to nose

Me circles and attacks again

Adam fires, misses

Me misses, breaks off attack

At this point, Naptownchief must make a decision. If he remains in formation for the entire flight, newchief is likely to suffer severe frostbite. However, the plane is in good shape otherwise and has no other inflight problems. Naptownchief makes the decision to fly to the target zone and then decide. If a crew member is lost en route, newchief can move to their position.

Zone 3 Out: France (Entering Target Zone)

3 FW190s attack – 1 is driven away by fighters

B2chiefsfan fires, damages FW190
Newchief fires, misses
Pastormikh fires, hits FW190

1 FW misses, breaks off attack

Despite being damaged by b2chiefsfan, a diving FW scores 2 hits
-superficial damage to port wing
-hits top turret – puts the top turret gun out of commission and b2chiefsfan sustains light wound to left eye.

Both FWs break off attack

4 Me109s are driven away by fighters

2 FW190s are driven away by fighters

Entering Bomb Zone
Good Weather
Medium flak – 1 hit
-superficial damage to radio room
Despite the flak hit and the cursing of b2chiefsfan, pastormikh makes a great bomb run – 30% score

Zone 3 Back: France (Leaving Target Zone)

Naptownchief makes the tough decision to drop the Fooooo Fighter out of formation and down to 10,000 feet to save newchief. Since the plane is still over flak this will expose it to occasional flak and also means that any fighters that find the Fooooo Fighter will sustain attacks against it as long as possible. Since the radio is still working, though, some fighter support is still available.

Light flak attacks miss

6 FW190s attack – 2 driven away by fighters

Amnorix fires, damages FW190
Mr. Christopher fires, misses
El borracho fires, misses
KC Kings fires, misses
Newchief fires, hits FW190

3 FWs miss.

FW scores 4 hits
-starboard wing root damaged
-superficial damage to radio room
-superficial damage to waist
-starboard wing root heavily damaged – No evasive action will be possible without risking ripping the wing off

The damaged FW breaks off, and the other 3 FWs circle and attack again.

Adam fires, misses
Amnorix fires, hits FW190
Newchief fires, misses
El borracho fires, misses

2 FWs miss

FW scores 1 hit
-superficial damage to pilot compartment

All 3 FWs circle and attack again, though 2 appear to be limping.

Pastormikh fires, misses
Amnorix fires, kills FW190
KC Kings fires, misses

Both surviving FWs miss, break off attack.

Zone 2: English Channel

Jamie was a good kid, went way before his time. We will miss him (well everyone except Fraz who was getting sick of Jamie trying to tell him how to fly).

Navigator Sure-Oz
Engineer BigOlChiefsfan
Radio Op. Gunther_Fan
Tail Gunner California Injun
Ball Turret Gunner Lightning Rod
Right Waist Gunner LegitimusGrim
Left Waist Gunner Chief Faithful


Target: the highly defended Abbeville, which is probably ticked off after the great bombing mission by those heroes in Plane #10.

Mid-formation horizontally, high vertically (moderate vulnerability)

Zone 1 Out: Britain
No enemy

Zone 2 Out: English Channel

4 Me109s attack – 3 are driven away by fighters

Boozer fires, misses
Chief faithful fires, misses
BigOlChiefsfan fires, misses

Me scores 2 hits
-radio room – radio knocked out of commission
-superficial damage to radio room (GuntherFan is not happy at the moment.)

Me circles and attacks again

Lightning Rod fires, misses

Me misses, breaks off attack

Zone 3 Out: France (Entering Target Zone)

5 Me109s are driven away by fighters

Entering Bomb Zone
Good Weather
Absolutely brutal heavy flak – 10 hits!
-waist – legitimus grim sustains light wound to lower right leg
-superficial damage to port wing
-tail – California Injun seriously wounded in right shoulder
-superficial damage to starboard wing
-damage to root of port wing
-tail – California Injun hit a second time in jaw, dies of combined wounds
-#2 engine (inboard on port side) knocked out of commission
-waist – legitimus grim hit again in forehead, dies of combined injuries
-waist – chief faithful sustains light wound to left foot
-tail – autopilot out, which means that baby lee will have to manually control the plane during the bomb run
-superficial damage to tail

Loaded with bombs, War Dog begins falling back in the formation after losing one of its four engines. Since they are already in the bombing zone, baby lee elects to complete the bombing run. Once the bombs are dropped, War Dog can keep up with the rest of the formation, which is vital since the radio is not working.

Amazingly, boozer manages to get the bombs close to the target despite the major flak barrage – 5% score

Zone 3 Back: France (Leaving Target Zone)

GuntherFan leaves the blown-up radio room and moves through the carnage in the rear of the plane to replace California Injun.

4 Me109s attack – 2 are driven off by fighters

1 Me misses, breaks off attack.

Special Ed weighs the situation. He can abort the mission with his copilot severely wounded and the intercom out. However, with lots of fighters in the area, dropping out of formation with no intercom could be very dangerous. Without the intercom, he does not know immediately that his navigator and bombardier are also wounded, so he opts to stay in formation and complete the bombing run to maintain the protection afforded by the other B-17s.

We already have kcnut and slayer signed up for reincarnation.

Will the missions be slowing down during the week?

Yeah, probably. It'll probably be more of a weekend thing, though I might be doing some during the week if I get a day off in the next week or two.

Hot tamales gentlemen! Three hits on my first mission! I knew tail gunner Geezer still had it. I knew Clint would be a great bombadier also.
PBJ PBJ PBJI don't care HOW many times you yell, "SWEET SASSY MOLASSEY," you're a damn good shot!

Cheers erupt from the ground crews as the dinged up Sky Chief drops out of the cloud cover and becomes the 20th bomber to land.UMKC 1L Had 2 kills and 1 damaged. Damn good shooting!!:thumb: He's well on his way to becoming a Ace(So to speak) And should get some sort of medal for his 1st mission. DFC maybe.

Boy, you're just asking for them to re-open the investigation, aren't you? And you should be happy that you weren't sitting in the pilot's seat.

Hey....no one ever proved that we had painted a bull's-eye on the pilot's side of the plane...I smell conspiracy and jealousy....

Remember, guys named "mmaddog" get those nicknames for a reason....I have no problem having a "midnight discussion/debriefing" for those people who need to "see the light"......
