Wings Of Glory Video Game Reconnaissance Mission AAR #2

 


Today I'm playing a Reconnaissance Mission with the video game based on the Wings Of Glory Board Game.  I will need to fly a two-person plane over the area to be filmed and perform a stall so the passenger can take a picture of the area and then escape before being shot down.

I will be flying a Sopwith Camel as a defender of my Airco DH.4 which is a two-seater that will take the pictures. Both of these planes add up to 215 points used. The enemy will be flying two Fokker D.VIIs with one piloted by ACE Rudolf Stark (Purplish Plane) and the second D.VII will be piloted by ACE Gotthard Sachsenberg (Yellow Plane).
