Flew my first four missions in an FW-190 and made ace (5 - B-17 kills (and one damaged P-47)).
Luck did play a part as one card draw was a DE and two other attacks resulted in bomb bay hits with catastrophic results. The other two were just shot to pieces and finally went down at close range.
As for the wingman, he saved my pilot by driving away a P-47 that had my pilot at a disadvantage in a badly shot up FW-190. However, in terms of his abilities against bombers, the wingman couldn't hit water if he fell out of a boat.yuk

Was wounded on the first mission by return fire from the second B-17 attacked, suffered a leg wound (of course)angry, but didn't lose the extremity and returned after missing 8 weeks.


Most missions were against unescorted bombers. However, when they had escorts, the fighter to fighter combat system was excellent.

Hey Dennis, Very encouraged that you are enjoying the game and that you seem to be having fun. Strange, this was posted on Saturday but only appeared here on Tuesday in Australia (Monday US time) Bizarre. Listening in on progress as I am curious to see how things pan out later on in the campaign when escorts are a regular. Do you find the Fighter vs Fighter procedure easy to cope with?

Hey Dennis,

I recommend you invest in some Kevlar pants. You'd do better in my games

Seriously, thanks for the write-up, sounds like you had fun. Let me know if you have any questions.

Cheers, Greg

I think posting was delayed because using b****er bird triggered some BGG protocol and posting had to be reviewed.

Fighter to fighter combat worked well, just took a bit getting used to as I haven't played DIF>
