Last week we went back to Russia and the Northern Front with another unit using lend lease Kittyhawks to commenorate the Atlanta Warhawk weekend event. May 15, 1942, the 147 IAP with P-40Es under Jr Lt Aleksei Khlobystov engages Bf 109s and 110s in a classic dogfight. Khlobystov is noted for a double ram attack back in April of 1942. Not too many people can survive a single ramming attack.
I got to play the Soviet P40Es, I had a +1 (Khlobystov) and a couple of green pilots. Rande flew the 4)Bf 109F2s -all +1s. Chris came in later with 4) Yak 1s (two +1s and a couple of Greens) I got the jump on the 109s and came in behind. We then commenced a really nice dogfight that lasted 16 turns. So at the end of the game we were left with 1 Kittyhawk (Khlobystov), 2 Bf19Fs, and 3 Yak 1s. One flew off earlier with no guns.

Love the concept of doing one plane type in several theaters. Might have to try this idea with Wings of Glory WWI.

Great looking planes!!!

you know, way back in the late 1980's, A friend had the game "messerschmits and mustangs"(sp) and we were going to find someone to make the wheeled stands and we were going to play.

The whole club was interested.

And then it just died. I always wanted to play that game.

Anyone know anything about "M&M's"?

On topic:thisd looks like fun! Great job!
