Recommended Posts

Mein Herren!

 

Please find below the daily report covering Jasta 4 operations for the 13th February 1917:

 

Mission 1 - Reconnaissance Escort - T/O 08:19

 

Piloten

Burning Beard - A Flt Commander

Leadtongue

von Baur

von Dudley

 

The Jasta was tasked to escort a flight of 3 Roland CII on a photo recconnaisance mission to Assevillers. A Flt were to fly as close escort with B Flt acting as conducting a fighter sweep along an arc running north to south of the target. Just before crossing the lines, a collision took place between 2 aircraft of A Flt due to a lack of airmanship. Both pilots (von Baur and the flight leader, Burning Beard were seen to crash on our side of the German lines. As nothing has been heard from either pilot they are presumed dead. A Flt also lost their leading ace, von Dudley due to accurate flak just short of the target as he was engaging DH2s that was threatening the recconnasiance aircraft. Only Leadtongue managed to RTB.

 

Mission 2 - Partol over Enemy Lines - T/O 11:40

 

Piloten

Burning Beard - A Flt Commander

Leadtongue

von Baur

Stumpjumper

Dutch

 

A Flt conducted a fighting patrol around the Saint Quentin area with instructions to engage any enemy aircraft encountered. Two fights of BE2c aircraft escorted by 8 RNAS Sopwith Pups were encountered approximately 5 kilometres north of the town. Burning Beard signalled the flight to engage the escort before pursuing the BE2cs as the escort had a significant altitude advantage. In the ensuing combat all the enemy aircraft were shot down (including 3 RNAS aces) without a single loss to the flight. The tallies for the mission were as follows: Burning Beard - 1 Sopwith Pup and 2 BE2cs, Leadtongue - 2 Sopwith Pups and 1 BE2c, von Baur - 2 BE2cs, Stumpjumper - 2 Sopwith Pups and 1 BE2c, Dutch - 1 BE2C. The Jasta commander also downed 2 Sopwith Pups flown by aces, but as regulations forbid senior officers to fly no claim is being submitted. Leadtongue reported downing the last Sopwith Pup, unfortunately this was not observed by any other member of the flight so no claim was submitted. All in all this was a remarkable result for the Jasta.

 

Mission 3 - Partol over Enemy Lines - T/O 15:01

 

Piloten

von Baur - A Flt Commander

Dutch

Sitting Duck

Stumpjumper

Burning Beard

von Baur

Leadtongue

 

The final mission of the day was plagued with problems. Stumpjumper had to break off and land at an friendly airfield due to engine trouble. and the rest of the flight had to return to base due to inclement weather. The flight did intercept a flight of 3 BE2cs however, with von Baur accounting for one and Leadtongue for the other two. Dutch also shot down one of a pair of DH2s that crossed the flights path but was unfortunately shot down by the wingman who escaped across his own lines.

 

The current tally of active pilots/kills is as follows:

Leadtongue - 4

von Baur - 4

Stumpjumper - 3

Burning Beard - 3

FRO - 3

Axgrinder - 1

Griphos - 1

Sitting Duck - 1

von Dudley - 0

Dutch - 0

 

 

Submitted respectfully on 13th February 1917,

A very enjoyable day, marred only by the collision on the first mission. I take full responsibility as, being the following pilot , I had the clearer vision of Beard. Otherwise I had no trouble with lockups once I started entring through the CFS3MP.exe and my connection stayed solid most of the time.

 

Thanx, Vasco, for hosting and acting as observer. Welcome to leadtongue, always nice to see a new player. Hope to see you again next week.

Sorry I couldn't make it on Sunday evening - I was trying to get back from North Wales at the time; still, at least I got to hear us regaining the Ashes, so it wasn't a complete dead loss.

 

see you all on Sunday evening.

Thanks to everyone who made my first multiplayer missions in off a very enjoyable experience...and a big thumbs up to vasco for helping me setup multiplayer. Bear with me as i get more acquainted and savy with off.... I will need to brush up on leadership skills and learn some unwritten etiquette for team flying which every multiplayer sim seems to have. I dont want to ruffle anyones feathers so if i do something wrong plz dont hesitate to let me know..... BTW i work nights mon.-fri. so early evenings up to 9pm east coast time is good for me and sat. and sun. weekends from early eve till i cant keep my eyes open anymore is usually my schedule. Looking forward to many more sessions....watch yer six!
