Radio Operator: Robert
Now time for our crew to visit the lovely town on Bryas! Only three zones, but it’s good weather and we’re at the tail of the formation again :/ 10000 ft, heavy flak, moderate EAR.
Zone 1: nothing.
Zone 2: 1 fighter, but he’s just a Kacz. Oh well.
Zone 3: three waves of fighters! Hoora… er, oh no! The first wave is a single Ace who doesn’t hurt us and we don’t either (thought the top turret scratches his paint).
Wave two is a Kacz we can’t hit. $%@#!
Wave three consists of three fighters, who we deal some damage to but unfortunately ding up our interplane communication systems (thankfully, not the radio).
Flak is heavy, but largely inaccurate. With little real damage to the plane thus far, the Reckless Venture scores 90% of it’s bombs this run! We get hit by flak on the return (thankfully, the bomb bay is empty for one hit). Unfortunately, we lose heat in the nose and Lydia gets frostbite.
Another three waves. Joy!
The first wave, a Focke, does superficial damage.
The second wave, consisting of Fockes (one of which is a Kacz we can’t hit) also does hits, but only superficial ones.
The third wave are Mess. 110 which are green and Kacz. We don’t hit either and the one only does superficial damage to our left wing.
Zone 2: alone again, naturally.
Zone 1: and home soon.
Lydia recovers from her frostbite and won’t miss the next mission.
