Bomber Thursday

Post  MJDixon on Thu Aug 02, 2012 8:28 pm

Gentlemen, it seems that there is to be an extra day of intermission, meaning that the WW2OL Campaign isn't scheduled to start until around 10:00pm BST this evening.

As such I propose that we play RoF from about 7:30 or so until the WW2OL Campaign comes up, then switch to that for the usual Bomber Thursday.

However, with it being Bomber Thursday we should try to have Bomber RoF day too, so if there are 3 or more of us on we'll do some bombing (i.e. two Escort Scouts and one Bomber) Probably me as I'd imagine the rest of you can't be arsed to learn how to bomb. Laughing

Or maybe even Photo recon, or some other two-seater based task - you know how the General Staff love to have up to date maps of the Trenches that never move.



I should be online on the Syndicate Server from about 7:30pm BST until the WW2OL Server comes up.

Here's a video from my bomb run last night:



Bit annoying as seemingly the flight wasn't recorded like usual, just the bomb run which I had to record with Fraps (as the in game recorder doesn't record the bomb sight view.)

Also I only had one bomb as some smart arse decided to put the 'View Bombsight' button next to the 'Drop Bomb' button, so I'll remap that before the next raid. Laughing

Target was an enemy Factory, wind was reported as 'moderate wind from the north east', attack was made from the south west following the river to the target, probably over-estimated the wind strength by about 1 m/s, as the bomb dropped slightly short of the aim point.

RoF Bomber Thursday bump! (Seeing as the WW2OL campaign is near enough finished Razz )



I should be on from about 7:30 BST to bomb some Huns, or take their photographs. Smile
