Thanx mates Perrenegger and Happy spray for the escort yesterday on F16 server.
Normally bombers are left to fend for them selves so that was a nice change.

"7 wildcats destroyed and 2 dauntless"
F19_ olli and I flew Vals, perrenegger in zero, going for a cluster of ships protected by flak and fighters.
First mission went bad but the next was an interresting one.

I and olli in Vals escorted by Happy spray in a zero.
Half way we were attacked by a wildcat wich we brought down together.
Close to target we were attacked by 2 more wildcats and olli managed to damage the engine of one of them wich later flipped and crashed while trying to shoot olli down.
Sadly we lost Happy spray while he was tangling with another wildcat in the tumult of the flak but that enabled us to release our bombs and we sunk one ship.
I was dodging the flak, trying to get out of range but olli had turned back to strafe planes on the carrier deck. He hit a dauntless well in the wings and cockpit area but also recieved hits in the engine from the reargunner and left smoking and later forgot to bail when his engine gave up on him, and plummeted into the world of fishes.
Meanwhile I was trying to evade two wildcats that had followed me and Turned like crazy.
In all during the escape I was attacked by four wildcats of wich 3 flipped into the water while tring to shoot me down. the fourth was tougher and I was lucky to damage his controlls so he could only use rudder for rolling. I was out of ammo and evaded best as I cuold, climbing and retreating towards home. This guy really wanted me and he probably understood I was out of ammo.
He had to quit as we were close to my base and he returned home aswell but his engine quit on him and he had to ditch. I crashlanded on my carrier but walked away alive.

The result of our mission was:
7 wildcats destroyed and 2 dauntless. Olli just told me he got 3 confirmed kills strafing that carrier with his two 7mm mg's...so the total was 9 enemy aircraft destroyed.
We lost a zero and and a val to enemy action and a Val to a landing accident.

Pretty good I'd say ...He he...compared to the normal results.

We were on f16 mate.

I just had to change our number of planes shot down.
Olli just told me he got 3 planes confirmed when he strafed that carrier with his two 7mm mg's....and that summs up to a total of 9 destroyed enemy planes on that mission. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif
