I only managed 1 Frame, and I'd give that a 3.

Typhoons are for the Jabo-ing though and more German Buff/fighter ratio for a 5

For the scenario it was not a bad experience flying a fighter I normally don't fly with good guns. Only con was a fault on my own when chasing a D-25 on the deck to an enemy airfield and I shot it down but was still on the deck and I crashed into a tree when I was talking to my mom when she came to show me something. Nonetheless I would give the event a 4. (Pros: Real good experience, decent engagements, nice change of scenery for a winter event.) (Cons: Some of the aircraft were good but one thing was missing and I was surprised, and it was that I know we don't have many players but we could of had ME 262s and I know they used them over the Ardennes IRL. Also the P-47D-40 could of been used as well since they were used at that time.) Overall it was a good event.

I give it a +4.  The only reason I can't give it a 5 is because of the constraints on numbers who participate and the limited map and targets that are held to a minimum because of the number of participants.  This in no way reflects of those who design these events.  I have to tell you putting something competitive with the above constraints makes it even more difficult for everyone to buy in.

Brooke and WarHawk well done. I t was fun!

+4 FOR ME . Well done Brooke and all CM's  Only reason it didnt get a 5 was planeset. B26's are buggers to get any tail kills with. CAnt wait for the next one.

+5 Brooke.

The AR234 "AWACS" was an interesting twist (despite the grief they caused to us B26 pilots). Thanks for all your efforts!

+4 - this was my first scenario in a long time based on prior hiatus from AH, so I could have rose-colored glasses, but it was great fun!

Pros: I think the Scenario was really well run, was a good size (didn't feel overwhelmed by 200 pilots), and had interesting planeset, especially addition of AR234 scouts. Also, great people to fly with, awesome!
Cons: I think the only main con was that it was quite a bit repetitive; the points structure rewarded 5-6 flights of: attack airfield, get one bunker, one gun, fly home, land. Rinse then repeat. We had some good intervening events and fighter engagement so that helped break up monotony! Also, one other con was zero-minute re-gen of the airfield guns - I think this could have been better integrated with the points structure, and revised to have a realistic downtime for each field

All-in-all, very fun, thanks for hosting!

We will have a Target For Today (12-hour event) in late August, and a Scenario in October.
