EYE AM LOOKING FOR A . ENQUIRE WITHIN.(3 months later, I suck a dick)=====================You are Witold Urbanowicz, Polish Triple Ace, and you're in the middle of a big damn furball.How do you know it's a big damn furball? Partly because the skies are filled with Martian planes. Partly because Kunming's scrambled all available fighters to repel them. But mainly it's because there's a giant flying aircraft carrier right in front of your eyes. It's launching fighters as if it's magic. And it's firing all its defensive armaments at anything that looks at it funny.You're stuck in the middle of a dive, trying to bomb the runway of said aircraft carrier. It's a shame you couldn't mount the fancy stuff on. All the fun stuff has to be shipped elsewhere. Plus, the P-40 can't mount them all, even if you had the choice.What's mildly annoying, though, is that the black Martian craft from much earlier is on your tail and presumably about to splash your ass. He's got the drop on you and you can't pull out.[ ] Radio for help. You need to aim those bombs.[ ] Drop the bombs NOW.[ ] Pull out and play air chicken.
>>28166112>[ ] Radio for help. You need to aim those bombs.We only get so many chances at this. We need it to work on the first pass to have any chance.

You've got a big black bogey on your six. Now, if this were a normal situation, you'd have someone covering you. Unfortunately, you're stuck in the middle of enemy territory and you're pretty sure the Martians did NOT park their anti-air armaments behind the bridge, like that one Dutch warship.You're also not the Red Baron, but why would you be some stone-cold World War 1 German flier? You've got a radio.Now who do you want to call.[ ] Wingman[ ] Witch (Specify)[ ] SURPRISE! YOUR RADIO CRACKLES TO LIFE

You have no time to think. You pick up the raido and call the first name that comes into your mind.And then you wait. It's like playing air chicken, only that if you lose, you'll end up a bloody mess on the Martian carrier's runway. It'd be hilarious if someone did try to attack a ship in this manner, though.Two minutes. Your bogey is getting dangerously close now.One minute. Any second now, Lieutenant...Thirty seconds. The Martian ace fires it's masers. You spin your plane. It was real close.Twenty seconds. You drop the bombs early. But can you pull out in time?Ten seconds. It looks like the bugger's about to come for another pass.Which is what he, or she, (you weren't really sure if Martians had gender to begin with) would have done if there wasn't a juicier target. The telltale flicker of magic shielding confirms it to be a witch.You radio your thanks to Tomoko.You're not sure if the bombs did their work. There's still a lot of planes out there in the sky. Or at least, until you hear a very loud BOOM. At least that takes care of any reinforcements.[ ] Get back in the fight. That carrier must have launched most of its complement out.[ ] It is now time to hunt the most dangerous game: Plane Booty.
>>28167243So I'm confused.What's the difference between the two options?
>>28167292aka do you want to fight 78 planes or take out a single martian ace?I should have been clearer with this one. MAI BAD.

Attempt at humor failed.ABORT ABORT AB- I MEAN.VOTE OVER.
The damn carrier's still afloat and it's guns are still active. Still, it can't launch any more planes. Not like it matters, since the sky's full of them right now.The big furball's underway, and it appears that both sides are evenly matched for now.[ ] Charge straight in.[ ] Catch a bogey off-guard.

Only fools charge in recklessly without backup. You may be a crazy son of a bitch, but you're also pretty dang old and in a flaming metal coffin powered by explosions and hate.You decide that discretion is the better part of valor, ignoring your entire career of doing the exact opposite, and hang around the furball, It isn't long before you're sucked into the fight itself.It's not looking good and it ain't getting any better.Everything's a big crazy mess, but three things catch your eye.There's a plane out there in your colors being chased by a bunch of Martian aircraft and there's no time to warn him about it. There's a Witch being double-teamed, though she seems to be doing fine.And you notice, to your great disappointment, that the black plane from earlier has re-entered the fray. Presumably Tomoko's hot on his trail.[ ] Help a bro out.[ ] Help the Witch.[ ] OH SHIT DANGER RUN INTERCEPTION TACKLE THE STAR QUARTERBACK

You decide to help the hapless pilot.What's the best way to approach this?[ ] Up and over. Use the sun as cover.[ ] Loop around and hit'em from the sides.[ ] From under them. No, really.

The basic goal of air combat is to ensure that you have more energy than the other guy. And then use said energy to punch holes in the other guy. Sometimes literally.It's a strategy that even a rookie pilot would catch on fast, if he hadn't been shot out. And you're one of the best around.It takes very little effort to get above the gaggle that's on the poor pilot's tail. Damn fools were so concentrated on their prey that they didn't notice you until you managed to shoot one down.But now you've got their attention and the return fire is very, very thick. Most of the gaggle peel off to fight you, leaving the poor guy with a much more manageable portion to run away from. From then on it was a simple effort to get surrounded. They've got you trapped in the middle of a Lufbery Circle, and you can't excatly fly over or under.[ ] Try it anyway.[ ] Try shooting one of them.[ ] HIT THE AFTERBURNERS DIVE DIVE DIVE
>>28169820>[x] Try shooting one of them.Well, they have us surrounded. Now they can't escape.

There's no way you're gonna crack the circle. So you opt to do the next best thing: dive.The martians aren't that stupid, though, and follow you down. There's a few who keep circling around, but the rest of them follow you. You're only hoping they were as dumb as they seemed.You're not sure if their planes were good divers, but it's just something you'll have to find out for yourself.==================================Fucking... I am really out of shape for questrunning.I'll have to end it here for today.SEE YOU NEXT WEEK.
