    DBS Mission #8 | 6-6-15

    Even with a relatively low turn out for this one, it was helluva fun mission. The following screenshots capture two sorties DBS flew, both equally spectacular.

    Mission kick off with both teams taking off.







    En route to target(s).



    Our escorts doing their best to cover, lose a concentration for just one second and this happens.



    Diving down to the deck to force defenders on our six. This was one and only head on pass.



    Yorktown class target spotted, maneuvering into firing position.





    Defenders in close pursuit.





    Maneuvering between escorts and getting closer.





    Waiting until she fills my cross-hairs (torpedo sight).



    離れ魚雷!!! (insert Japanese "torpedo away" wording here)



    Second flight starting their run.

    cont'd

    View from the carrier.







    Great balls of fire, by yours truly.





    2/3 fish found their mark. Midships and astern!



    The second one blew up the unfortunate bloke who tried to take off.



    Second flight ready to release their ordinance.



    First torpedo hit.



    Second torpedo hit.



    Third torpedo hit.



    Fourth torpedo hit.



    Second flight matching first' efficiency. 4/6 fish found their mark. Our best torpedo run to date.



    Leaving Big E crippled and few bombs away from final demise.

    Second sortie

    With AI doing their job with Hornet, we had one job to do - finishing up Big E.

    Forming up over our fleet.



    Formation shots.







    Attempting to use cloud cover for our protection since we did not have any escorts on this one.





    As soon as we approached the first clearing, all Hell broke lose.



    First pass on the leader (me) ended up with PK. Nice shot wild kitty!





    Fortunately for the rest, our gunners shoot straight. We got his fuel tank.





    The onslaught cont'd.





    4 planes manages to reach enemy fleet. With the last remaining one finishing off Big E before getting shot down himself. This being the last known picture of the flight.




    My track available HERE.
