Yamamoto AAR, May 25th Snapshot
« on: June 01, 2001, 09:46:00 AM »
This was a great event and while we like to see more numbers, each side had so much fun, we ran 1 Frame and then swapped sides and ran a 2nd Frame.

What made this snapshot more enjoyable was the lack of any kind of Radar information.  The clipboard in tower and in flight did NOT show dots or strength bars.  So Recon, Communication, and Cooperation is what helped the Allies in each frame locate Yamamoto's Flight.

In each frame Yamamoto got within long visual range of the island and his destination airfield, but was shotdown each time.  The dogfights encountered by each side were furious and well-fought.

Numbers for each side were 12 pilots.

Frame 1 Results--

Yamamoto's plane was shot down within site of his destination field.
