Now if certain people saw these events 'in game', they'd be whining about AI and damage modelling..../i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif


" Despite the change in role, Johnson's air combat score increased. On 5 May, Johnson stalked and destroyed an FW 190 which he found flying low and alone. He claimed another FW 190 later that month. Its pilot jettisoned the canopy and began to clamber over the side before Johnson fired. Johnson fired. The pilot dropped away, his parachute deploying. As Bader had found out in 1941, a claim of 'frightened' was insufficient to claim a victory."



" At about the same time, No 417 Squadron had a srange but not unique experience when they were eascorting forty-eight Maruaders to Palo. The bombers had just bombed their target and were turning for home. The Spitfire pilots scanned the sky around and above them. An extra aircraft joined Yellow Section.

'To general surprise this was seen to be a lone 109, which had tacked itself on to our formation in the mistaken belief that it was among Friends' [ORB]

The German pilot had realized his error and tried to escape. Despie his initial mistake, he showed talent. Houle had quite a task trying to draw a bead on the Bf 109. Finally, he closed in to point-blank range - twenty yards - and fired. The Bf 109 blew up. Houle flew right through the debris, and bits festooned his aeroplane. The German pilot managed to bale out of his disintegrating machine at 300 feet."
