Logged on but my game sounds were porked by the game update and it typically takes hours to figure out a fix (if a fix can be found). Sorry, guys.

That's a bummer guys, it was a heckuva fight.

First pass was devastating, bombers fell all around. For the next hour plus we faced attack after attack in a running battle that lasted nearly all the way to the coast. I think we had about 18 or 19 bombers remaining as we turned for home. Brutal, but extremely fun.

I think we found a happy medium on how to handle flight and launches for both sides without penalizing either side for wanting to continue playing. The Luftwaffe gets 40+ minutes of air spawning from A61, and then another 45 minutes of normal takeoff from nearly every field on the terrain, and Air spawns from 106.

There must also be a flyable computer available for Nefarious to do FSO. So he doesn't keep talking about it for eight and a half hours on Friday night!
