the fourth game of the Check Your 6 Kursk air campaign was fun and frustrating. Scenario had a FW189 with 4 Bf109G2 escorts trying to recon some Soviet positions. The ran into 6) La5s of what must have been a Guards unit. The Uhu never made it the target and spent the entire game dodging the Soviets.

Yeah, that did make my dodgeball act a bit more necessary. Next game will be different though…
