On the plus side, it gave me the opportunity for my first Me 163 on Me 163 kill ever. Even more crazy the fact that it was a vulch  :evil:

Got me one in Lancaster! I don’t think he had flown one before lol  :rock
Back in 2022 after a loooooong break from 2010. Old name Ratpack, same for the BBS.

Squad I did the most tours with were the Excaliburs then The 172nd Rabid Dogs. Still trying to talk Illigaf, Coola, Oldman22, and Joecrow into coming back instead of being boring old farts!

Yeah, and every base hase 163"s??

What’s wrong with variety?

Lack of such is probably the biggest reason players move on, 2,3, 5-10 years of the same exact thing…how long for each is individual, but eventually almost everyone will leave.

I’ve returned twice.
They're casting their bait over there, see?

We have lots of variety. Most folks fly a couple of planes.

When I notice things like ME163 enabled at all bases, I find fun in hunting them or trying to set an altitude record.

There's one thing that really surprised me. 3Points was up two times with Komets enabled on all fields, If I recall correctly, it was up for like 2-3 days the first time and about 3 days the second time.

During all that time, only one single Komet vs Komet kill was made.  :confused:

I really can't imagine something like this happening back in the day when people like GHI were around.

163s are such a niche plane. With few exceptions, either you fly them well, or you do not fly them at all.

Mildly interesting: There are only 35 recorded Komet vs Komet kills in the history of AH Main Arena.  :old:
(But 258 kills of of by Wirbelwind and 445 by Ostwind)
