Convoys Again

«Sirens!»
There goes the siren that warns of the air raid
Then comes the sound of the guns sending flak
Out for the scramble we've got to get airborne
Got to get up for the coming attack!

«Announcement from Erik the Viking!» Convoy: Sword is the place to be

«Aircraft» Hurricane Mk2 takes off from RAF Hawkinge!
«Aircraft» Hurricane Mk2 takes off from RAF Hawkinge!

(From (#663) Hurricane Mk2) Watts clears the runway… with one other. Heres hoping Jerry isn't out in force.

(From (#663) Hurricane Mk2) Watts heads off for the convoy, climbing slowly.

(From (#1662) Ju-87 Stuka) Lorenz is in the lead, already with the right altitude he just have to wait for the convoy to come into view.

(From (#661) Hurricane Mk2) Wozniak climbs rather sharply, then levels off as he sets his course towards the convoy after a rather steep climb that puts him higher but behind the other pilot, pausing for a moment before radioing. "Hello. Bogu here, making angels. Bearing 164. I see you in the lead."

(From (#663) Hurricane Mk2) Watts gets some relief when he hears other people. "Ah, alright then. Thanks Bogu! You must be in my six, or sunward. Sword is coming up.".

(From (#663) Hurricane Mk2) Watts passes over the convoy, and dips one wing low, so he can look down at the blue below.

(From (#661) Hurricane Mk2) Wozniak radios back, "I am right behind you. Don't see anything yet."

(From (#663) Hurricane Mk2) Watts levels out at 12k feet, and begins circling the convoy. "Oh, there you are, I got you now." he calls out into his radio, as he sees a green speck distant.

(From (#661) Hurricane Mk2) Wozniak flies past the convoy and slowly begins to circle around. "I've seen you. No Germans."

(From (#1662) Ju-87 Stuka) Lorenz acks, "Hurricanes!"

(From (#663) Hurricane Mk2) Watts loops over the convoy, and then begins heading southeast… chances are where Fritz is going to be. And sure enough. "Tally ho!".

(From (#663) Hurricane Mk2) Watts adds, "They're up high. Making angels.".

(From (#661) Hurricane Mk2) Wozniak begins to circle around the contact, "I see him, climbing to meet him."

(From (#663) Hurricane Mk2) Watts waits until they are at pointblank practically before opening fire.

(From (#1662) Ju-87 Stuka) Lorenz gets blasted and the Stuka wavers around.

(From (#663) Hurricane Mk2) Watts then powers up, as he wheels around, already on the oldsmobiles six.

(From (#1662) Ju-87 Stuka) Lorenz tries to look over his shoulder, as it dissapear into his blind spot.

(From (#661) Hurricane Mk2) Wozniak radios in, "I've lost you in the clouds. Making angels to meet you."

(From (#1662) Ju-87 Stuka) Lorenz stalls and falls.

(From (#663) Hurricane Mk2) Watts finds himself above the Stuka, but dips back down, and gives him a squirt. Eight machineguns blow the shit out of the target.

(From (#1662) Ju-87 Stuka) Lorenz aaaaaaaaaaarghs

«Aircraft» (#1662) Ju-87 Stuka has been destroyed!

(From (#663) Hurricane Mk2) Watts watches the smoke trail. Splash. "Theres another one around here somewhere, Bogu.".

(From (#1681) Ju-87 Stuka) Baumgartner sneaks on up against the convoy.

(From (#1681) Ju-87 Stuka) Baumgartner is in absolute crap here over the channel.

(From (#663) Hurricane Mk2) Watts finds time to eye the blue sky happily. "Its like rats in a barrel!".

(From (#661) Hurricane Mk2) Wozniak flies around blindly over the others, missing the action altogether as he drifts in and out of the mist. "Roger that. I am checking back on the convoy now."

«Aircraft» Ju-87 Stuka (#1681-Baumgartner) fires its 2x7.92 at (#663) Hurricane Mk2 but misses! (Accuracy 0)

(From (#663) Hurricane Mk2) Watts finds himself head to head, and promptly zooms right over the divebomber.

(From (#1681) Ju-87 Stuka) Baumgartner is so close to his target, yet so far away, almost time to dive.

(From (#663) Hurricane Mk2) Watts is right on Baumgartners ass. But a long way away.

(From (#663) Hurricane Mk2) Watts sees the Stuka slowly growing in the crosshairs…

(From (#1681) Ju-87 Stuka) Baumgartner starts his dive for the convoy.

(From (#663) Hurricane Mk2) Watts oops as the Stuka suddenly dives out of sight.

(From (#1681) Ju-87 Stuka) Baumgartner zooms off straight down

(From (#663) Hurricane Mk2) Watts follows the Stuka down, or tries to, but finds himself losing ground here… or air, or whatever.

«Airstrike!» Ju-87 Stuka level bombs Trawler with 1 x 250kg bomb!

«Aircraft» (#1681) Ju-87 Stuka has been destroyed!

(From (#663) Hurricane Mk2) Watts blinks as the Stuka kamikazes! Divine wind is here.

(From (#663) Hurricane Mk2) Watts gets on the radio. "The other Stuka hit a trawler and then splashed. No joy.".

(From (#661) Hurricane Mk2) Wozniak power-dives after the Stuka, but comes off the plunge with a shudder as the Stuka continues all the way to the bottom. "Roger that. I saw him. I hope it will become a habit for Germans. No joy here."

(From (#663) Hurricane Mk2) Watts goes back to looping around the convoy - and trying to gain some height, having followed the divebomber pretty much down to the deck.

(From (#661) Hurricane Mk2) Wozniak suddenly radios, "Tally ho. Way up there. Making angels."

«Aircraft» Hurricane Mk2 takes off from RAF Hawkinge!

(From (#663) Hurricane Mk2) Watts can't see shit. "No joy. Where are the bandits?" he radios, and rubs at the perspex canopy, finding some grease spots on it.

(From (#664) Hurricane Mk2) Wilson radios, "In the air on route sword.

(From (#663) Hurricane Mk2) Watts frowns a bit at that, in the air? Well, that narrows it down. "Roger that, sir." he mutters a bit downcast. "Still no joy.".

(From (#663) Hurricane Mk2) Watts is a fair bit away from the convoy though.

(From (#1676) Ju-87 Stuka) Lorenz isn't far away at all, and starts his dive run.

(From (#661) Hurricane Mk2) Wozniak radios, "Tally ho. Angels 15. I lost track of you. I'm almost over the convoy. Heading 153, on his tail."

(From (#663) Hurricane Mk2) Watts ohs, and sees a Stuka, already diving. "Tally ho! He's heading down fast.".

(From (#661) Hurricane Mk2) Wozniak radio, "I'm on another one's tail, then. This one's holding."

(From (#663) Hurricane Mk2) Watts dives himself and zooms forward. "I'm at angels 1, and he's even lower! He's going to take their masts off!".

«Airstrike!» Ju-87 Stuka level bombs English Channel with 1 x 250kg bomb!

(From (#664) Hurricane Mk2) Wilson sets power to near full trottle.

(From (#1676) Ju-87 Stuka) Lorenz starts to climb after splashing water

(From (#663) Hurricane Mk2) Watts is going way too fast after the dive, and overshoots by a couple of miles. 350mph is fast.

(From (#1676) Ju-87 Stuka) Lorenz turns around

(From (#663) Hurricane Mk2) Watts watches as the Stuka turns towards! Bonus.

(From (#1674) Ju-87 Stuka) Baumgartner starts his bomb run, off he goes.

(From (#663) Hurricane Mk2) Watts gives the Stuka a plugging. "I hit him but he's still in the air!".

(From (#661) Hurricane Mk2) Wozniak radios back in as he stays on a second Stuka's tail. "I see both of them. This one's dropping fast to join you."

(From (#663) Hurricane Mk2) Watts loops in behind the Stuka again. These things aren't exactly agile.

(From (#1674) Ju-87 Stuka) Baumgartner splashes water, pulls away.

(From (#663) Hurricane Mk2) Watts looks around for more targets. "Getting low on ammo but the old birds got some love left. No joy!".

(From (#1674) Ju-87 Stuka) Baumgartner brings her around back home…back to France.

(From (#664) Hurricane Mk2) Wilson powers back to slide in behind his target.

(From (#663) Hurricane Mk2) Watts downs one wing, so he can look at whats going on far below. "I'm far too high to get him, I'm at angels 8.".

(From (#661) Hurricane Mk2) Wozniak radios back, "I'm on him."l

(From (#661) Hurricane Mk2) Wozniak stays on the Stuka's tail in a long curving chase across the Channel, dropping steadily, then lets loose with a halo of machine gun fire at medium range before sweeping up into a climb from the dangerously low ship-skimming heights. "That's one German down."

(From (#663) Hurricane Mk2) Watts doesn't have an ammo counter on this warbird, but he has been paying attention. "I'm RTB, pretty much out of ammo.".

(From (#664) Hurricane Mk2) Wilson curses at the all home order as he just got on station.

(From (#661) Hurricane Mk2) Wozniak turns the plane around, tilting it to take a look at the agitated waters around the Stuka's aquatic landing strip. "Roger that. I've still got something left. I'll stay on patrol a while. Anyone else out there?"
(From (#664) Hurricane Mk2) Wilson answers Wozniak "Just got on station. I'm going RTB."

«Radio» <Wilson 664 radios> On final approach, ** ** land ****

(From (#663) Hurricane Mk2) Watts has been going slowly, apparently. "7 miles from Hawkinge.".

«Aircraft» Hurricane Mk2 lands at RAF Hawkinge!

(From (#661) Hurricane Mk2) Wozniak takes another sweep past the spot where the Stuka he downed disappeared below the sea, or as close as possible. The surface all looks alike from up there. "Returning to base." he sounds terribly cheery.
