Delirious from a night of hard drinking and womanizing, MOH_CARROT staggered to his feet and pulled on his flight suit. Scarcely an hour back from leave, CARROT again found himself in midst of an impending battle. The howl of the airbase alarm resonated through his aching head as it sounded the approach of enemy aircraft.
Scurrying out of his makeshift accommodation, CARROT ran towards his waiting Ki-84, the aircraft's attendant standing pensively nearby. “She is ready sir” stammered the attendant, “MADMAN, WEG and MAX are already airborne sir” “A formation of Helldivers have been sighted north of base”. Without a word, CARROT clamored into the cockpit of his trusty “Frank” and got the aircraft under way. He could already see his 3 MOH comrades closing formation while they looped the base and waited for the valiant CARROT to join them. He taxied to the main runway, hit full throttle and gently lifted off into the dawn sky. .
Minutes later, as the northbound formation of MOH pilots gained altitude, group leader MADMAN’s voice could be heard over the RW: “8 BANDITS…10:00 o’clock low----no escorts… engage at will!!!!” .
At this command, all 4 pilots peeled off and into a diving attack. Gumby, Madman and Max dived directly upon the Helldiver’s and opened fire. Looping, and turning, they repeatedly slashed into the enemy formation. The tracers of both friend and foe cut through the hazy morning light. CARROT watched as several stricken enemy aircraft caught fire and quickly lost altitude, losing sight of them before they met their end. .
Pumped full of adrenaline, Carrot dived steeply and approached a Helldiver from behind. Coming from underneath the arc of fire of his intended victims rear gunner, CARROT opened up. The Ki-84 30mm cannons devoured the fuselage of the Helldiver as it quickly broke up and fell earthward. Unmoved by the spectacle, he closed on another BANDIT and opened fire from scarcely 30 meters. CARROT could see the contortions of fear on the rear gunners face as he suddenly popped up from below the Helldiver and released a volley of fire on the doomed aircraft's starboard wing, causing it to mercilessly shear away. .
“Number 2” he muttered to himself as glanced over to his comrades to assess their situation. Suddenly, CARROT felt a terrible burning in his thigh followed by a throbbing searing pain. At the same moment there was a sudden noise in his Frank’s engine and a stream of oil that gummed up his windscreen. In a twinkling his cockpit had turned opaque. “I am hit CT called over the RW….I am hit!!!!!”. “Bail out”! shouted MAX………”.your rudder is gone, you are leaking fuel and will soon catch fire”! .
In an instant, CARROT opened the cockpit and tumbled out over the fuselage side, narrowly missing the tail. With a firm pull of the release cord, his parachute unfolded with a sharp jolt. A gentle descent followed. He silently watched as his beloved "Ki-84 Frank" careened nose first into a forested embankment and exploded. “Sheeeeeeeesh, that was close”!!!! He mumbled to himself… “and I thought recovering from a 26 of gin was rough”. Reflectively CARROT looked down at his blood soddened clothes and was glad to have survived. .
Just another day in the life of this deadly ACE……MOH_CARROT..
