Greetings all! It's time to grab your life preservers for this Sunday will see us over the English Channel in the area of Neiuport for the classic Channel Bombers map. This is the original classic channel map by Syndicate Squadron map makers, set in late 1917.
The map has 6 objectives for each side to complete. First to complete all six will win the round. The big prize on this map is the "enemy convoy" objective. It is comprised of an entire convoy of 6-8 naval vessels, 2 of which are battle cruisers which are heavily armed with AAA. The first bomber flights in should concentrate on taking down the cruisers' air defences.
***When in doubt about whether mine sweepers or submarines are enemy or friendly, you can set your gunner to fire at ground targets and make a quick close pass by the vessel to see if your gunners fire***
Date: October, 1917
Mission Start: 1800GMT
Objectives: Destroy all targets, marked on the map by a RED flag. The side that destroys all targets first will win. Move over the target with the cursor to see a description of the target. Please note that the flag will disappear when the target(s) has been destroyed.
Weather: We will attempt to match real world conditions in the area the day of the event.
Good luck gentlemen S!
