Bounced







As the bounced Gustavs try to weave, each P51 settles in for a low deflection tail shot. One element misses, the other scores 3 hits for ZERO damage!




The right side 109's have moved, slowly, looking to set up the Thatch weave with one element from the other flight each.




And again one Mustang element misses completely, the other scores 1 hit for 0 damage, while the Germans on their tail score 2 hits for 1 damage and reduce the lead P51 element.




P51 lead is destroyed, 109C-2nd is reduced.




US initiative helped a lot this turn. But still only 1 hit for 0 damage.




P51 last to move; caught in a trap?




Maybe, but it's a high deflection shot for the German. But the Gustav pilot is hot, rolling BOXCARS for 2 hits & 1 damage! And AGAIN the Americans fail to connect, 2 hits for 0 damage!




Again a US hit does no harm!




The Mustang pilot is on a suicide mission. And all three elements miss all of their shots.




US to move then last German.




What a tangled mess... The Germans miss and the US finally downs another Gustav, reducing C-lead.



Finally the P51 gets its revenge, downing the pesky German. Just in time, as the American pilot ruefully watches his enemy fall to earth, he hears the rattle of cannon fire. We will never know if he heard the massive explosion as his fuel tank erupted and his Mustang blew to pieces.

Germans win 6-3

In this game I learned the power of the and-109 zoom climb special ability. That not only recovers energy at a super high rate, it allows for limited vertical movement at whatever speed the plane moves, giving the element a much better chance to achieve good position.
