Friday Night Bomber Flight Topic

Recommended Posts

Seeing that people sign up for axis here in the situation of a player ratio of roughly 2:1 for axis, and in the sight of people already offering to switch sides for the sake of balancing, I am out. I have done my fare share of balancing all the years ending up flying basically red only. I flew blue once in FNBF, and felt bad afterwards because numbers were also terribly uneven. This here was my second intent to fly blue - but I am giving up. I also do not feel like giving the balancer all the time so the fans can fly their favorite ride. The logical consequence is then to stop participating.

@Nocke Sad to hear that, it should be all about fun. 

 

For my sake things turned for the worse and I wont be able to attend after all. I hope this event is coming soon again

No chance of me swapping. I am rubbish in all of the planes in this set so it matters not one jot what I fly. In fact I am rubbish in anything that goes fast :scare:. And I get claustrophophic in tanks... :happy:

Cheers.

Do be ridiculous... You should of said something if you wanted to fly Axis over the years. That could of been easy arraigned.

3 of [DBS] and Jizzo will shift over to Allied

Can I just say before we have even started....Thank you!   

 

There is no better way to experience a combat flight sim than in an online organised limited life event.    Getting the briefing 24 hours in advance just makes the excitement last even longer.  I appreciate the time and effort that goes into this so thanks again.:clapping:

Thanks Tip.   Sorry I vanished during the second sortie but my PC stopped responding as I came back for a second run and I just went nose first into the forest.   It was another minute before it even gave me enough CPU to click the 'end spectate' button 🙄

 

I will get some footage uploaded tomorrow.

A quickly thrown together video from my own experience last night when the P47s attacked Ryazanskaya.  There were 8 P-47s I believe and a Spit carrying a 500lb bomb.   I took AAA damage over the target and landed as soon we got back.  We seem to have hit it pretty hard and I believe that all the strike aircraft got home from that raid though I did see one of the escorting Spits land in a field and I think a few more were lost keeping the 190s busy while we egressed though I know they gave as good as they got.    

 

 

I reason I skipped from Finals to Parked is that my PC locked up a few times on finals though luckily I got away with just a bumpy landing.   In the Next sortie it locked up long enough for me to crash 😞

Some excellent sorties out there for both sides. Could of used some more Allied and Axis tankers out there to keep each other busy as they met up a couple of times instead of the AI/Drone herds that Hummels pounded throughout the mission.

All good...

Apologies for that.. I had spent quite some time preparing for yesterday and at the last moment it turned out my squadmate had himself signed up for a tank he doesn't own so he wasn't able to play. I was a bit disappointed and not really having a lot of fun on my own. I should probably just have joined the P47 voice chat and see if they could have supported me but I was was a bit annoyed and bumped out.

 

I love the vid Hummels made! The tank mission in itself is a real nice addition to FNBF I think!

If you had hung around for few more minutes you would have caught 8 P47s,  half of them damaged,  coming in to land.   In fact we passed over your heads going the other way as you were heading home 🙂

AS usual I am not sure. We might take a trip to a nearby island. But that only going to happened if weather is tolerable. Tomorrow it will snow. And we are fed up with snow. 

Anyway I take a reserve slot in one of these 

JU52 ( if nil does not take it) 

IL2 if slots available

P40 if slots available

I16

or HE 111( might keep me clear of the trees)
