First try. Let me know if I did some mistakes.

First combat mission out of flight school, things are getting real. A raid is detected inbound Amiens rails. Not far away, good thing this will lower the risks.

I took-off in formation with my wingman and headed towards Amiens (next endurance tile).
Enemy is detected head-on (R6), that’s a formation of B17s (R7).
That’s not a good start, anyway we are at long range, there is hope. Let’s attack!

I instructed my wingman to attack a bomber, no sign of escort.

I aimed for the airframe with 12FPs, the bombers are still fully loaded a lucky shot could end this quickly and pulled #31 -> GP.
This shot resulted on (table B3) Controls – Airframe – Gunner – Random *2. Since we are at long range, I discarded 1 random hit. Random hit gave Crew Injury (R6), Copilot (R12), severe Wound (R4).
Not too bad for a rookie.

Now the B17 answered back, brace! Pulled #56, 3 hits.
I took hits in Airframe – Engine – Crew, KIA (R6)……

In the meantime, my wingman attacked another bomber (table W1) and got hit (damaged). Bomber took 4 hits (R9) – 1 for the range. Controls – Airframe – Crew, gunner.

What a day.

Hey Xavier,

OK you MIGHT be alive:

For the crew injury, you have to roll if it's YOU or the Bordschuetze (rear gunner.) Well obviously you don't have a rear gunner in a Fw - so if you roll 2d6 and a 8-12 means it's a no effect (hits your non-existent rear gunner.)

So not sure if you made that roll or not - look at the B4 chart and you'll see what I'm talking about.

Cheers, Greg


PS It reminds me of when I was testing "The Hunters." Dude rolled an aircraft in the tournament, first box, first patrol, sunk. I was thinking "hmmm I might have lost a sale there." hehehe

I didn't roll for it, I that because the FW-190 is single pilot I was about to take all the lead coming my way.
Anyway, I just rolled a 3. I am terrible with dice!
Next time more luck, I hope.
Thanks.

January 4th 2014:
Unbelievable! U-907 goes out on mulligan patrol. Gets British Isles, beginning transit through Bay of Biscay rolls a 4 for AC detection with 1 hit. Rolls an 11 +2 on the attack chart!!! to the bottom U-907 goes. Oblt. Harald Oesten goes gripping his Hunters mug to the end lol.

That does it for me it looks like.

The mug reference was to the mug I won in the release of the game contest. Still got it.
