My third Devil's Bombers team that I'll start from the scratch. This time my bomber crew will have familiar names. Exciting tales of courage and other drama waits for these Devil's Brigade's Magnificent 7 who have joined the RAF and are flying Lancaster-bomber DB-03.
Pilot: "Skipper" IdleCleese
Bombardier: "Why me" Rgbman195
Engineer: "Fix this" Daegolax
Navigator: "Marking it" mark585
Radio operator: "Singing" Amendeon
Gunner: "I can fly" Caferacer
Tail gunner: "Defending" zlang
Volunteers to join this crew, if any of these poor chaps would die?
Captain's log. Our first bombing mission was successful. Enemy fighters were harassing us from the beginning and we lost great deal of blood. Amendeon was slightly wounded but he recovered after some rest. Caferacer took some pounding from 109s, but he managed to fend off the attackers. During the return back to base port side engine caught fire, but we managed to extinguish the fire and engineer Daegolax climbed on to the wing and fixed it: "Good show!"
We returned back to our home base and earned some £ and we bought boots and warm gloves for everyone -Huzzah!
Until next time tah-tah!
Now I am playing for second time and my squad is: Anssi pilot (great skills btw, he landed plane that had only one gear down without crashing), Amendeon singer or radio man, Daeqo engineer and second gunner, Rurjevit navigator and second engineer, Zlang tail gunner ofc, Matziti central up gunner and Piri main bomber and gunner.
Tip to Anssi for engineer: buy equipment box in middle of plane and equip with parachute. Don't send poor Daeqo outside on tails to repair fuel leaks or engines without parachute because if he falls off...
Captain's log. Our mission was to seek and destroy enemy subs. Bombing was excellent again so we decided to take some recon photos. When we flew deeper into the enemy territory we were attacked by enemy fighter squadron and had difficult times when heading back to base. Some small drama happened during the exchange of bullets. Caferacer was shot, but thanks to Daegolax's urge to fix things Cafe was saved. Daego took a medic box and healed Cafe before he was a deceased gunner. So once again Daegolax saved the day!
Marvelous show and now some pics.
Sinking the U-2 "Bon voyage Bono!"
Daegolax saves Caferacer "Would you mind checking the leaky electronics while you're back there?"
Our Lancaster is Swiss cheese
Mission 03. Captain's Log. Third mission and during the briefing our commander informs us there's an enemy ace spotted over the Canal. Blast! Zlang and Cafe will take care of him for sure, if he comes to our six. Our mission is to drop supplies to a downed spitfire pilot. Precise low altitude drop that rgbman surely can deliver. Our mission starts with technical difficulties when our electronics fail again during the approach. Daegolax shows his skills of using wrench and fixes the faulty fuse. We encounter the enemy ace Felix Feder and after a long firefight he rolls and returns to France tail between his legs. Zlang scared him off for good -Huzzah!. We shot down one squadron of 109s and dropped tea and biscuits on target. Good show! As a reward I spend some £ on crew equipment. Idle has a hat and Daego has a cap that should make him move 5% faster. Zlang and Cafe got their helmets for protection.
Bugger off Feder!
"We're all going to die!" Amendeon
"Skipper. Port side aileron is in France" Caferacer
"I can still land this ol' chap!" IdleCleese
Our crew is ready for the next vital suicide mission: Operation Certain Death.
Remember folks, bomber crew's life expectancy is 4-5 missions.
"It's a wonderful day to die... I mean fly", IdleCleese

Is there a spot on our plane that doesn't have a bullet hole?
Well here's some nice pics
Darkness will cover... "Enemy fighters spotted", Amendeon
Here they come!
zlang can use his focus-skill and aim better. "Do I smell smoke?" Daegolax
