I haven't pressed play. Is it you Pwning a Gotha? In an SE5a? In daytime?

Let me know if it's not and I'll watch it. :S!:

Ah, NG, you already forgot Rule 1 from the "Puppy" thread.

Rule 1: Respect the history.

Fact 1: Gothas were flown only at night after September 1917.

Fact 2: The USAS had only one SE5a squadron and it only flew in the last few days of the war in November 1918.

So the event in your video is about 14 months out of synch.

You do get a few points for using Ansirial's very nice 25th Aero Squadron skin, however :)

Screw history. I'll only watch the video if the Gotha is crossing no-man's land on the deck to carpet bomb the Verdun aerodrome like they do on the LH server.

I would love it, if multplayer missions were made with history in mind; at least the missions that do not involve DH2 machines! :lol: I picked the USAS skin on account of being a US citizen, so it is more about picking the home team, than history. ;) Ansirial's skin is awesome; I had this skin, even before it made it into the official patches. :S!:

I think they are making a musical as well!

Only if I can get Brian Stokes Mitchell to play me. I think his work on Broadway is outstanding! ;)

I do not pawn the Gotha. Unfortunately, for the pilot of the Gotha, he did not take enough fuel. I ruptured his tank and he ran out, so I did technically get credit for a kill, but I did not press the matter further. I do not believe in sim killing opponents, unless by accident, so I never seek to pawn anyone.

It is a shame that he did not take more fuel, as I take 100% fuel, so this does not happen to me. 8-)

Recently, I had a most delightful encounter, with an HP, while I was forced to fly Central. A new member of our community, named SarahZoom and a person I unfortunately did not catch the name of, beat my attack off quite effortlessly. They certainly beat my best efforts to down them. The track is wonderful to me, since I enjoy inconclusive engagements, very much so; it is more fun when both sides part and no one is shot down. :S!:

p.s. I cannot help that it is daytime. Some time in 2009 I made shorts with single player, but now I only use multiplayer and I do not control the missions in rotation. ;)
