The Finish forces have two light bombers and four escort aircraft.
The bomber crews were veteran pilots and the fighter force had one veteran pilot as well as two skilled and one green pilot.
The Soviets started the game with six I-16 aircraft and the pilots were all green except for one skilled pilot. On turn five the Soviets started to roll a six sided dice to see if they would get three I-153 fighters as reinforcements. On turn seven the Soviets rolled a six and there received the additional I-153 fighters.
The Finish fighters break off from the bombers and take on the advancing Soviets but due to poor communications they go off course and leave the bombers vulnerable to attack.
The other Soviet Bombers intercept the Finish fighters.
A fight erupts but no one scores a hit on each other. The Finish Fokker D-XXI's turn around to engage the larger group of Soviet fighters to try to draw them off from the Blenheim I's.
In the meantime, the bombers move to the target area unmolested. Near the target area the I-153's circle the HQ's location waiting to engage the bombers.
The Blenheim 1's withe there veteran crews approach there target area and drop there bombs. Unfortunately they missed there target. The attack has a negative affect on the Soviet HQ's staff who run for there lives and it take a lot of Vodka to bring them back to there duty location.
This was the fist time using bombers for me in CY6 and all of us learned a lot about how the defensive fire and bomb runs work. Overall it was a fun night of fighting and flying.
Thanks for visiting and have a good weekend!!!
