The action was fast and furious and the Typhoons came barrelling at low level and very quickly had the measure of both the objectives. the flak blazed away to no effect and in fact only succeeded in but a single chance to hit anything! Retribution was swift though as the FW190 tasked with the low level intercept made short work of one the Typhoons whilst the other escaped at high speed.
Meanwhile the 109s were mixing it with the Mustangs and it ended with the Rookie Gustav pilot going down under the guns of a P51 whilst the ongoing whirling dogfight ensured that all but one of the top cover aircraft had some damage. Numbers prevailed and this was hardly surprising at this stage of the war.
An allied victory for sure but great fun to play and for me, confirmation of why I prefer the FW 190 at this period of the war (actually at ANY period of the war!).
As ever many thanks to Mr Fox for the use of the toys and to Mr H for his valuable support and participation.
Next week we shall be revisiting Summer 1940, over the Kentish countryside....
