New Guinea Campaign
Mission: Link air, naval and land action in a campaign and story context
November 2, 1942/2019
Recon Mission To Lae, New Guinea
"Yeah, Skipper, I hope they will be looking high for us when we make our low pass over Lae."
"Yeah, Mac. Ya' know what that means? The Zeros are either on their way to or coming back from raiding our guys at Port Moresby."
"Flying low Skipper seems to be working. Nobody is shooting at us yet."
"Nah, they are just out for a sail is all; relaxing. They'll be back soon enough. Okay now.... Out to sea at wave top height and then a wide turn back to Port Moresby."
"Sparks, send encoded news back to base. "Lae airfield and harbor empty."
The table is set for two Allied air raids scheduled for the evenings of November 6-7, 2019.
Doing these on consecutive evenings gives the feel of daily and connected missions. Also these are small games needing only 4-5 pilots. Gaming on two evenings affords opportunities for more of our local pilots to fly.
