I am playing the experten II campaign and I'm flying a mission to bomb a russia airfield.I am in a schwarm(4 fighters)and I'm the #4 plane.My plane is a Bf109G,its got a 250 SC bomb under it waiting to be dropped.The flight is in formation and the first Bf109 starts his run,but closing in at our 12 o'clock is 2 flights.The first one is a four ship of P-40s and then the second flight is a 4 ship of I-153.We all drop our bombs on at a time as we come over the target,but to our mistake the enemy fighters are ready to pounce and do.Instantly the lead Bf109 is taken out by a blast from the P-40s.After I dropped my bomb I try to gain some alt so I could see what was going on.Also at the same time the AAA opens up!I hear all of my fellow Bf109 pilots calling for help,so I start to look to find them,but its to late all of the flight is going down in flames.I don't know if it was AAA fire or enemy aircraft fire,but it happened very fast.Now its 8 against 1 plus AAA fire,but I do have some alt(around 2000ft),but between me and my base are the enemy planes.The P-40s see me and try to climb to intercept my 109.The P-40s get on my 6 but are alittle ways back but open up anyway,and I see pieces of my plane coming off,so I start doing some defensive flying so the P-40s can't get a clean shot.While all this is going on every time I look back I can see that all 8 enemy planes are in pursuit of my lone Bf109.I did NOT want to get into a turning battle with the 4 P-40s on my tail and the I-153 bringing up the rear.I did some high and low yo yos to keep my speed up.I was still climbing because I thought the P-40s would struggle to keep up.I finally got enough distance away that the P-40s where out of range to shot me,but as I weaved back and forth so I could see my 6 (in combat I stay in cockpit mode)I noticed that the two flights of enemy aircraft was still in pursuit.I was at 3000ft by now and slowly pulling away from the P-40s.Here is where I get stupid, I finally see the P-40s start to break from pursuit and slowly turn back towards there base,so I break hard left and go into a slight dive throttle back to catch 2 P-40s.I come up on the first P-40 and lay into him with everything.Pieces are flying off his plane everywhere.Then I see smoke coming off and he breaks hard left,so I let him go and see the #1 P-40 dead ahead.I lay into him with everything I start to see smoke coming off of his P-40.I start to break right to head in the direction of my base and all heck breaks loose with tracer fire everywhere.Now I have no speed because I slowed down to fill the P-40's tail full of lead,now someone is filling my tail full of lead.I try to go into a dive to get some of my energy back,but its to late and a P-40(I assume)blows one of my wings off.I try to bail out but I get out to late and die hitting the ground.I guess I should of not got greedy and just went home.Bummer!!

Cool story!One thing I learned back in the days of IL2 is to leave while you're still ahead. If you don't,you're taking an awful risk....Betcha won't do it again,eh?/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Thanks,ya I don't know what I was thinking.I guess it was like"well its pay back time",but the pay back got me in trouble.I'll start the campaign over again,and see if I can make better choices.I'm trying to be aggresive,but still stay alive.
