I'm not sure the gun rotates that way, but you're welcome to try.



I was reading a real WWII account a while back, and one of the crew members said that they were in their huts when shooting started and bullets came through the walls. They hit the decks and were okay. It turned out that the ground crew accidentally shot off several rounds while they were prepping the plane, and blew off the leg of one ground crew guy and shot another one several times in the chest. Talk about being in the wrong place at the wrong time...

-tail – cheeefs takes light wound to groin (that had to hurt)
-tail – cheeefs killed by hit to neck

The sixth flak hit is a bummer. Flak enters the bomb bay and strikes a bomb. The bomb explodes, which sets off the other bombs in a massive explosion. What’s left of Diana Might breaks apart at the waist and tumbles to earth.

Pilot Phobia (2) killed in initial explosion

None – all KIA. RIP, noble crew of the Diana Might.WOW!! R.I.P. Diana Might. I'm going to quit moaning about how our plane the Sack Time keeps getting beat up on our missions. But I'm going to bring this up again. Up untill recently it was considered bad luck to have females serving on planes and ships in the military. Coinkeydink... maybe...maybe not. :D

-KCJones suffers light wound to left shoulder
-superficial damage to port wing
-pilot compartment – heating system for Rain Man and tk13 knocked out

With no bombardier and no heat, Pilot Rain Man has no choice but to abort the mission and drop out of formation down to 10,000 feet and try to get home. The plane now has no one manning 4 of it’s 12 guns due to injury. With no navigator, the crew must guess the route home, with tk13 serving as an impromptu navigator from the copilot’s seat and Duck Dog planning to make radio contact with air control once the plane reaches England.

No bombing run.
Although wounded, KC Jones come forward to jettison the bombs.

Zone 2: English Channel

Zone 1: England

Radio Op Duck Dog works with air controllers to get an estimate of the plane’s location, works with Pilot Rain Man to locate a field where a belly landing can be attempted without blocking the runway for other planes

Ball Turret Gunner Cormac moves up to the navigator’s seat to avoid being squished during the landing.

Zone 1: England (continued, due to lack of navigation and being out of formation)

Good weather
With no navigation equipment, an inoperable port flap, no starboard aileron at all, and a starboard landing gear that won’t deploy, Pilot Rain Man steers the plane along a quiet runway and makes a relatively smooth belly landing in Gunther’s Thunder. The five uninjured crewman leap out and kiss the ground.

Aftereffects

Bombardier Chitown can come back to action, but will miss the next flight to recover.
Left Waist Gunner hydrae is sent home with a tube in his chest.

Gunther’s Thunder is irrepairably damaged, but since more than one crew member survived, the crew will be issued a new plane. Per tradition, it will be named “Gunther’s Thunder II.”

Word is the pilot has a lot of experience handling great big long sheet-metal tubes filled with screaming passengers though all types of obstacle courses. My guess is that it isn't much different flying a B-23 loaded with bombs through the skies of Europe than it is driving a BlueBird loaded with curtain climbers through the streets of Cody.

DaWolf opens all engines full throttle to keep the plane from going into a spin and dives to avoid other B-17s, but the plane is yawing left toward a spin. Copilot LVNHack immediately acts quickly to cut off fuel to the afflicted engine, which fortunately works in shutting down the engine. DaWolf regains control and is able to stabilize the plane.

The Talking Can hangs on during the near-spin, and drops his bombs once the plane is stabilized. Luckily, this occurs just as the other B-17s drop their loads – 30% score

Veteran crews are better in the normal game. After 10 missions the officers get better at their tasks, and after 5 kills the gunners get better at shooting. However, since I'm randomizing the missions and they've already been calculated, there won't be that direct impact. Instead, everyone will get better on average since some of the runs have ace gunners and some of the runs have experienced flight crews, but there might be some bad days mixed in with the good.

All I know is the more missions we do the more cupid seems to be sending arrows into the cockpit of our plane. Shoot, everything was looking great on the target scope till about 20 seconds before I went to release the bombs then we heard some giggling through the intercom and then plane banking hard all of a sudden.

I think I might now understand how those guys from Easy company in the foxhole, when the mortar landed with them, but didn't detonate felt.

I think the Pilot may have pooped....just a little.

Talisman fires, misses (other crew members roll their eyes and shake their heads)

The ground crew pops a bottle of champagne for the excellent bombing run, and pretends once again to check out what’s wrong with Talisman’s gun sights.

You better watch your extra commentary, buddy, or I'll start repopulating your plane w/ those unlucky females. nlm

Well, I wasn't going to bring this up, but while I was bringing the plane in I did a quick suture to tk13's shoulder and did CPR on whoman69.
Who gave you combat medical training. I was killed by a head wound and you give me CPR? You gonna give a trachiotomy to someone who has their arm blown off?
No wonder I'm dead.

I could stand to get a little less, actually.

Was tired as hell all day at work today. Damn woman keepin' me up late. I'd make some sort of rule about only getting laid on the weekend, but I once remember my big bro saying something like, "The day I choose work over pussy is the day I quit my job." I agreed with him at the time, and somewhere deep inside I still do now.

Word is the pilot has a lot of experience handling great big long sheet-metal tubes filled with screaming passengers though all types of obstacle courses. My guess is that it isn't much different flying a B-23 loaded with bombs through the skies of Europe than it is driving a BlueBird loaded with curtain climbers through the streets of Cody.
:LOL:

Ain't that the truth. Heck driving them around Cody makes a tour of duty in a B-17 a piece of cake. :thumb:
