Eddie has passed AF3 and in doing so got a Russian horde of T34's to scatter in panic with his well-placed bomb.

Good job. You're almost finished.

I hope you had something caustic and witty chalked on the side of the bomb.

Let's not get hasty now, Wardy. I still have hope he won't make it.

Eddie, if you get a section do you want Paulie in it so you can order him to attack flak?

In selecting the motto... 'all for one and one for all'... I have done so because it expresses what should be the creed to every Fighter Pilot. Never forget that you are an essential cog in the wheel, and if you break or fail it will let down your brother pilots, and the grimness of war allows for no such weakness.

Not a great plan. Paulie is actually quite good at flak attacks!

Provided he doesn't bail out while looking for supercharger switch on the way to the target, of course.

In my defence, IL-2 doesn't even have a supercharger.

And yes, I'm in fact excellent at taking out Flak. Especially by ramming it.

How can bailing out while looking for the button to change the supercharger in a plane which doesnt have one and while flying at 1000 meters project to any defence? :DD

Firstly, I doubt I'll ever get a section. That would be a terrible idea.
Secondly, if I do, I would let Eddie sit on the field as a reserve so that he can't have any fun in the air. And yes, I would be willing to not to have a wingman for that.
