We had a Wings of War game on Wednesday night using Tom's planes.
A Roland C II has been ordered to take photos of a nearby towns defences and it is accompanied by a Albatros DVa unfortunately they have been spotted on route by allied scouts and an SE5a has been dispatched to stop them.
I took the SE5 while Mick took the Roland and Tom took the Albatros.
The Roland moves toward its target.
 Accompanied by the Albatros.
The Germans spot the SE5.
The SE5 moves toward the Roland but the Albatros does not seem to realise the danger.
The Roland closes in on its target.

The SE5 is in hot pursuit and still no reaction from the Albatros.

The SE5 moves behind the Roland but due to being lower in height it is unable to fire. The same cannot be said for the Roland as the rear gunner opens fire on the SE5 but does not manage to hit.

 The Albatros pilot must have been on the drink as he starts to fly away from the combat.

The Roland is forced to lower its altitude so he can take the photos as the Albatros finally gets into the combat.

The SE5 gets back on the tail of the Roland but before he can fire he is fired at by the Albatros who damages his engine(causing it to play a stall every three cards).

After taking the photos the Roland's rear gunner opens fire on the SE5 bot only damages the fabric.

The SE5 opens up on the Roland and damages its engine.

The SE5 again fires on the Roland and this time hits the spars and causes massive damage causing the aircraft to break up.

The Albatros and the SE5 square off.

The Albatros and the SE5 open fire on each other. The SE5 fails to hit but the Albatros scores another hit on the SE5's engine.

The SE5 and the Albatros fly into each other but luckily both planes escape with damaged paintwork.

The SE5 concerned about its damaged engine attempts to flee but the Albatros who is running low on ammo tries one final attack but again only damages the fabric.

 The Albatros veers off but the SE5 unwilling to risk his engine cutting decides to continue on home.

A victory for the Allies as they stopped the spy plane and suffered no casualties.

Next up on Wednesday we will be doing a Napoleonic cavalry battle using Black Powder.
