We were in one of 99th_Blindman's "5 minutes O' Fury" coops last night. Last one of the day, just some non-historical fun. SBD's F6F's defending Wake from eminent attack by land, sea and air. Cargo ships and armed junks are off loading landing barges.

I'm leading the SBD's and we don't wait for cover, we attack, attack attack immediately with 500 pounders. Within seconds Starbo, Led, US Grant and I have 4 of 5 cargo ships headed to the bottom. We get the win. Zekes are on us heavy though. Cap is good but not good enough to save me. A6M reduces me to dust.

Free'd of having to try and save my own butt I settle down to watch the rest of my flight. All three of my remaining flight eschew landing and hiding and proceed to go dog fighting with Zero's, and not just by jumping in the rear gun position either!!! As if that wasn't crazy enough...

Starbo goes batty and does a suicide run on a nearby Japanese carrier getting smoked for his trouble. Led and Grant down a torpeodo bomber a piece with just twin front 50's. And for the topper, Grant then proceeds to LAND ON THE JAPANESE CARRIER.

After firing all his round from his rear 50's, he then un-chocks, points his plane at the Island and shoots every round he has at that!!! When out of 50 cal, he climbs down from his cockpit, draws his side arm and orders the ships compliment to "unconditionally surrender". USMC Fighter and I renamed the prize, the USS Grant of course!!!

Most fun I've had in ages.
God I love this game!!

Sir, you and your fellow SBD jockeys are utterly nuts. I salute you! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

Very cool story, Worf!

Although, since the guns in the rear of the SBD are .30's, I am even more impressed!

Wow, an eminent attack must be a very smart kind of attack! It must be, since attacking an atoll by land must be pretty tricky... you know, keeping your tanks dry all the way and that... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif
