Wow.... another great FNATF. Everything went great except for some spawn issues with the bombers on the IJN side. Live and learn! THe P-47's launched from the flight decks with no problems. The jug is one heavy beast of an airplane. Having said that the IJN aircraft could barely touch them... the jug was just way too fast!! Red Team, flying allied the first round won the round. The Blue team, flying allied the 2nd round won the round. The Jug proved the superior aircraft provided it's pilot did not let themselves get suckered into a turn fight. Great job to all of the FNATF pilots!! Like to thank VC81 Bolter for this weeks mission & map as well as RAF23 Kapt for assistance in making some last minute adjustments to the map.

This week we had participants from the following squads:

VC-81
VF-17
VCG-12
VCW-21
VMF-215
VMF-223
TAW
VF-29
352nd FG
Also had a couple of Independant flyers

We had signups from VFA-25 & Fallen Angels who unfortunately were not able to make it. Hope to see them next week.

Thanks again and looking forward to flying with this fine group of pilots this coming Friday. Slots are going fast for this one so sign up now. It is a historical reenactment of the sinking of the Battleship Yamato.
