Took off as CH ( loaded with 4x250scs) from Libau, but due to bad fps, fell in behind Loki, with Alpha leading, low level all the way to Kelmen.
After a brief search, the tanks were spotted in a big east west line abreast formation. The He111s swung out and around to make a run on them, marking as they did for the JU88s which had arrived just behind us. At the same time, I saw Russian PE2s coming up from the south end of Kelmen, with one of the JG2001 guys in a 109 attacking. As I headed out of target westerly, I also saw another flight of four coming from the same direction, too far to give a positive ID, but were in formation, so they were probably Russian. I only saw one 109 for the entire flight. Regrouped with Alpha and Loki and put down at Taurrogen.
Never, in the field of online flight simming, has so much, been so f*cked up, by so few
Pilot Name: I/KG26_MadJek Aircraft Type:JU-88A4 [Loadout 2xSC500kg bombs 18x50kg bombs 75% fuel] Target Duties:Destroy tanks at Kelmen [Q-9] Targets Destroyed: 4 Tanks Mission End Status: Landed at Tauroggen Points: 160
Took off from Schrunden Aerodrome as leader of "AL" flight. In my flight was HK_Grayray, JG2001 Rasputin, and I/KG26_Diesel. "AK" flight took off from Schrunden as well. Their flight was composed of JG2001_MRUD, Doso, Eule, and Quax. After take-off they made a slow left hand turn and came to a final heading of approximately 172'. Myself, Grayray, and Diesel grabbed some altitude as "AK" flight settled in on the deck. (Approximately 500m) My flight climbed to 1500 m. We flew along our 172 heading until we made it to Telsche. When we arrived over Telsche, now at approximately 2200m, the lead flight changed heading to 135'. (Postioned to go just south of Kelmaen.) With the help of the He-111's, who were already over target, we were able to know where the tanks were. They were able to direct us into the tanks with the radio and were kind enough to mark the targets with smoke! I informed "AK" flight that my flight would stay high to draw any flak, then hit the target after they were done. After making only a few counter clockwise circuits, I received a call over the radio that there were enemy in the area. Initial reports came in that there were 8 Pe-2's and I thought I heard a pilot call out fighters in the area. I let my flight know to get in drop their bombs and get out. Grayray said that he had already dropped some of his munitions. I set up my run on the tanks coming in from the west. I saw burnt up tanks and dropped on the first "healthy" tanks I saw. I dropped all my bombs on my run. My rear gunner called out hits and said that he saw only a few tanks go up in flames. After hitting the tanks, I checked again with my flight and asked if they had dropped all their munitions. Diesel and Grayray both said they had munitions left. I formed up on Diesel and followed him back around the target. As I was doing this, I counted 17 enemy tanks still alive. Diesel and I continued to circuit the target when over the radio came a call that there were still targets north on the MSR. Diesel and Grayray then headed north as I started my leg back to base. I turned my crate towards an old base we were stationed at a month ago. I made my way to Tauroggen to join up with the He-111 flight of Alpha, Redcoat, and Loki. Made my approach and landed up. Headed to park my plane next to the other bomber pilots at the base. We went to the officers tent and had a few drinks while we discussed the events of the day...
Unfortunately, while we were discussing the mission, we were interrupted with a report over the radio that Grayray's plane went in. A very unfortunate event, as he made nice runs on the enemy today. It is always good to have one of the grizzled veterans from the Hunter-Killers attacking Ivan. At last report, Diesel made it back to Schrunden with his starboard engine smoking.

Our He111's were in the wrong bombing role from the start today, Loki and Redcoat took up position after takeoff from Libau airfield, I took an estimated heading to our target at Kelmen town Northern sector.
After a few heading changes at low level 500m ranging from 137' to approx 94' Western sector of kelmen we made a search pattern for the enemy tanks reported from the recon mission.
I spotted a huge line of armour spead across the North of Kelmen approx 40 tanks. I called the attack heading and started my bomb run diving low to 100m, I dropped all 4 sc500's and blew up a lovely forest after my bombs bounced past the tanks.
I made a return flare run marking the tanks for the Ju88's thet were arriving and saw Loki headon almost and pulled out in case of bomb blast, as I looked forwards to make a left turn * PE2's wer off my 12 o'clock about to attack our artillery line, I reported them in but it was too late they made tier bombing run and hit us hard.
After some manouvering around between fighters and bombers I made a heading to land at Tauroggen airfield, where Redcoat and loki soon fell into formation and we made safe landings there.
Redcoat got the beers in as he was the only one from our flight with a tank killed.

Mission Debriefing: Took off frm Libau with Alpha and Redcoat. Flew to Kelman where we did a search for armor, Alpha spotted aromor at outskirts of town, flew a pass to verify, flew a pass and dropped 2 bombs, no hits. Redcoat called out enemy planes in area, flew final pass and dropped last 2 bombs, nothing hit. Lost visual with flight during bombing so egressed South for a grid then flew West and met back up with flight, Landed at Touragen.

Mission Debriefing: Took off from Schrunden last, weather was nice, plane handled heavy on the controls and headed to target area near Kelmen. On way to target spotted 4 Ivan’s but they did not see me, lucky as I was far behind group all alone. Got to target, lot of action was going on, was order too stay high till things cleared up. Made one bomb run, hit some enemy units. Turned and flew to second target outside of Schaulen with Gray. Got there and some of our bombers were hammering the bridge cutting off the retreat route of the enemy. Gray spotted units and made two or three bomb runs, as did I. Hit some cars, got hit hard by AAA. Pissed me off made run at them HA HA got them. Loosing fuel so made for home, Gray stayed with me all they way. Got home and was lucky to make good landing. Crew was happy too. Did not hear about Gray’s crash till after I had landed. Grabed car with my crew and went to look for him with case wine and beer. Found him and his crew. That’s the last thing I can remember.
