***Note:  Flak will run at reduced levels on this and future Syn maps.  Machine gun fire is still deadly at low altitude and "archie" can still score the odd hit, but the "laser guided flak" of old is gone. Good riddance!
 
Battle of Vendin - "Lifeline"
 
Date: October, 1917
 
The German army is using canal barges to get their supplies to the lines. This makes the transfer points a priority target for the Royal Flying Corps. RFC 46 squadron, which is just converting from Pups to Camels, are ordered to attack every ship between Don and Vendin. as well as trucks just behind the lines. 59 Sqn, flying the RE.8, has been ordered to destroy the transfer points, a fuel depot and train station, in Don and Vendin. RFC 40 Sqn with Se5as and RFC 11 with Bristols, will provide top cover.  
 
Jasta 12 and 18 are stationed nearby and will be protecting their airspace in their Albatros DVa, Pfalz DIIIa and a handful of the new Fokker Dr1 scouts.  The German Flieger Abteiling has been assigned various objectives: Photo recon objectives and two tactical ground targets; enemy artillery and vehicles east of Bethune. 
 
Important: completing any of these objectives will unlock new Camels or Fokker Dr1s.  To complete the recon objective: Take a plane labeled "Recon", load a camera and fly to the objective area. The camera icon will pop up when over (one edge) of the target.
 
Weather: Will attempt to match real world conditions at time of mission.
 
Mission start time 1800GMT
 
Good luck gentlemen S!

I'd love to be there. Real life issues may be in the way, but I will surely try my best.

Thanks for yet another event!
