Stunning pics guys.  I always love your custom paint jobs Olham.   They are so beautiful I don't think I would dare put holes in them.   Maybe you should paint all the German planes.  LOL

Thanks a lot, Hellshade, great compliment!

 

But mind you: the Albatros in the last tableau were all painted by OvS!

 

(I know he is OvStachel now, but for me he will always remain OvS. :D )

Wow, that is a close-up details shot - sexy, the "Viper"!

 

How is WOFF running for you with so much detail on the ground, Adger?

Hi Olham..thanks

 

So far its not running too bad,ive yet to do a big 1918 campaign and yes it does slow down to about 30fps over airfields.

ive took the shadow detail down a notch aircraft shadow at 4,terrain shadow 2.

ive had a couple of random crashes to desktop that im going to keep my eyes on though,and also a few times it ends my missions prematurely which im also going to keep my eye on.

'Get that gun going, before it's hanging up in a Hun mess!' - yelled to an observer of an Aussie BE2 in Palestine; here, a similar situation has developed 'somewhere in France'...

Scenes from the latest mission in my 56 Squadron campaign, May 1917...

 

Two of us are detailed to shoot down a German observation balloon. But on reaching the front, I see white smoke puffs from friendly Archie, engaging unseen enemy aircraft down low and left.

 

Shot12-26-16-17-03-56.jpg

 

After watching cautiously for a while, I can see only one Hun, who appears to be putting on some kind of flying display for our troops...perhaps he's strafing them. I go down and put a stop to this.

 

Shot12-26-16-17-06-05.jpg

 

The red-tailed V-strutter can out-turn me but by using what today might be called low yo-yos, I get him, and then scoot on over towards my original objective, the balloon.

 

Shot12-26-16-17-08-40.jpg

 

I decide to attack the 'sausage' from the east, taking advantage also of some cloud in that direction to give me cover from the German gunners who have seen me coming and are blazing away. My flight-mate is lagging behind but I press on.

 

Shot12-26-16-17-10-34.jpg

 

coming out of the cloud, it takes me a while to spot the balloon again but I'm soon diving down onto him, throttled back and guns blazing.

 

Shot12-26-16-17-11-19.jpg

 

He begins to fall, trailing a plume of dark smoke; the next second, as I open up and jink away, he's goung up in a ball of burning hydrogen.

 

Shot12-26-16-17-11-36.jpg

 

I've come off him heading west and home as planned. Instead of my flight-mate catching me up at this point, I find I'm being tailled by another Albatros, this time one with a black fuselage. He seems to be hot stuff and lands a few hits on my S.E.5, but again using the vertical at the cost of my height, I manage to get some hits in return, cause him to break off and run for it. My Lewis Gun is out of rounds, but the Hun is unable to out-run the rounds from my Vickers. Down he goes...

 

Shot12-26-16-17-14-37.jpg

 

...and back I go to Vert Galand, with two Huns and a balloon to claim, equally pleased to find my flight-mate has also made it back to safety.

 

My log book shows eight confirmed victories from seven operational flights, and three claims pending confirmation...


56 pilot 1.jpg

 

...the latter likely including the Hun with the black fuselage, whose demise I have recorded in what I trust will be sufficient detail, to ensure that confirmation follows...

 

56 pilot 2.jpg

 

So far, still so good!

'So far, still so good!' turned out to be a rather classic case of speaking too soon...

 

First problem, despite being quite certain I got the balloon marked as our target, it's not credited, so we are sent out again to knock it down. Perhaps the Huns replaced it quickly. This time I have two companions and we get over the lines without incident. Soon, I'm looking down at the ballloon...

 

Shot12-26-16-23-19-59.jpg

 

...but a glance behind shows my flight-mates peeling off, up and away to my left rear. Evidently, something is stalking us, and it's not hard to guess what.

 

Shot12-26-16-23-20-20.jpg

 

I came here to get the balloon, and now's my chance. I roll right and swing down and around towards it - you can see the balloon just above the right-hand trailing edge of my centre-section in the pic below.

 

Shot12-26-16-23-20-42.jpg

 

Archie begins to shell me as I come down. Another glance behind shows I'm still clear, with my flight mates still climbing up towards whatever the sun's glare is still hiding from me.

 

Shot12-26-16-23-20-49.jpg

 

I end up attacking along the fore-and-aft axis of the balloon, and at first I think he's not going to burn with a single pass. But I'm wrong - down he goes...

 

Shot12-26-16-23-21-28.jpg

 

Shot12-26-16-23-21-50.jpg

 

I climb up and away to my side of the lines, drawing clear of the ground fire.

 

Shot12-26-16-23-23-41.jpg

 

At that point, I should have perhaps gone home, and had I done so, I'd have got away with it. However, there was the little matter of my two flight-mates, whose alertness had enabled me to accomplish our task. I still had plenty of ammunition left, so I began a right-hand climbing turn, back to the scne of the action. I don't usually turn on labels, but this time I did, because I was experimenting with the keyboard commands to check if I had 'dot mode' turned on. What the brief glance I got at the text labels revealled was a sky full of Albatros scouts, mostly disengaged, but on top of the heap, one was fighting against a solitary SE.

 

Shot12-26-16-23-25-04.jpg

 

I got no screenshots of the long dogfight that developed once I arrived back up there. But I chased that Albatros down to low level, and finally clobbered him as he tried to land. However, by that time I was down level with several of his friends, and had to make a run for it with their bullets cracking and snapping into my kite.  Not to be left out, Archie was having a crack at me, too.

 

Shot12-26-16-23-33-23.jpg

 

Literally dodging between the trees persuaded the V-strutters to abandon the chase. But just when I was beginning to think I might make it back over the lines, my motor gave up the ghost. I clipped a fence trying to get down into a decent field, but managed not to turn her over. As it was, I only just avoided smashing into a clump of trees at the far side of my forced landing ground.

 

Shot12-26-16-23-34-25.jpg

 

I knew my campaign had come to an early end, but instead of being made a prisoner, I was rather miffed to be told that I had been killed 'by direct enemy action', which seems to happen to me rather a lot after what seemed to have been a half-decent forced landing.

 

Perhaps I should have got out while I still could and not turned back, but at least, the honour of the squadron has been upheld!

 

OK, this has been more of a mini-mission report than a screenshot post, but if nothing else, it illusrates that there's a lot more to flying WOFF than taking pretty pictures!

If you can't beat 'em, join 'em...consolation for the premature end of my 56 Squadron campaign is at hand, flying for their most famous opponents, Jasta 11.

Routine patrol escorting two seater recon when flight leader breaks formation and banks left. I and some others following him while a pair of other DIIs continue keep the recon company. We circle around but either flight leader doesn't see anything or else he didn't think it was a threat, so we turned back to our mission. Looking around, I spotted a new Sopwith Triplane. I had read about them in the news and decided to swing back and take a closer look. That was not a good choice...
