“We must attack the IL-2’s first” MOH_GUNNA called to MOH_FOX, “they are approching the front line and will soon be upon our comrades in their trenches……” “Keep a lookout for the Yaks FOX” At those words MOH_GUNNA dived towards a formation of the heavily armoured late model Il-2 Sturmoviks. The Russian pilots however were on the ball and must have seen the checkertailed FW-190A-8 descend. They calmly allowed the FW190's approach and then suddenly, as if on command, broke hard, one to port, and the other to starboard. As GUNNA's FW-190A-8 was in a high speed approach he could not turn as tightly as the IL-2’s and shot past them. He cut throttle, opened cowl flaps and pulled back hard on the stick. He felt his guts balling up in his seat and felt like he was near to passing out. As he tightly looped over he could see that two Yak 3’s were closing from the west. Another look filled him with confidence as he saw the BLACK FW-190A-8 of his wingman MOH_FOX diving upon the Yaks from his perch in the sky. He knew FOX would give him the time to address the Il-2’s yet again.
GUNNA pressed his attack anew and the nearest Il-2 grew in his gunsight. The rear gunner of the IL-2 fired furiously but GUNNA paid him no mind as he continued to close. The IL-2 pilot was no fool. The distressed aircraft began dancing all over the sky. GUNNA stayed with him and began spraying the IL-2 from inside 100m with machinegun fire. This made the unfortunate Russian visibly uncomfortable. His IL-2 bobbed and weaved so that GUNNA had difficulty scoring even a few hits. At least the fire from the rear gunner had stopped, his machine gun pointing straight up into the air. This man was either heavily wounded or already dead.
Now it was time to use the 30mm, Mk108 wing cannons. The il-fated IL-2 loomed large in front of GUNNA and he was transfixed by the sight. He had to act instantly lest he ram the BANDIT any second and so pressed the Mk-108 firing button. Large chunks of IL-2 broke away and whizzed toward GUNNA but he continued to fire undeterred. Suddenly, IL-2 prop wash caught GUNNA’s FW190A-8 causing it to buck and heave so much that he was tossed like a rag doll about the cockpit. He used all of his strength to stay behind the Russian who evaded for his life. GUNNA fired again and the IL-2 broke apart. GUNNA shoved the stick forward so hard to avoid debris that his head banged against the cockpit roof. He cleared the doomed IL-2 Sturmovik and pulled his FW190A-8 around for a look at the Yak’s, one of which roared past him on his port side. He watched amazed as the Yak pulled out of his dive and turned in behind him. Before he could act, there was a bright flash and the Yak disintegrated. The black and red blur of a passing FW190A-8 told him that MOH_FOX had scored a direct hit with his Mk108's. Another loud explosion caused GUNNA to look below where the IL2 he had destroyed had ploughed headlong into the ground.
It was a fateful day indeed.
