What happens if two people hit the same target but different parts of that target?

If the target isn't sunk - nothing.
If the target sunk - the last hit gets the kill.

Gravel is correct, kills (and prizes) only go to whoever made the killing blow.

Well this is VERY interesting so far. Still waiting on a fair number of pilots to call their shots, but so far... everyone has had their first choice of target. There is even somewhat of a pattern... I thought it would be much more random. Ah well, you'll see when I post the results up. I'm glad I'm organising this mission, if I was a bomber the suspense would be killing me. Smile

Gentlemen, here is the first target board, the weather is fine and you are cleared to begin your bombing runs.





Remember, please submit your three target choices by PM, a ceasefire for day 1 will be called in approximately 24 hours.


Also, the location for this Operation has been chosen totally at random, I'd never let my personal beliefs on what might be funny affect the mission. That's not what OCD is all about.

But if anyone can identify the city, well, I'll be impressed.


By the way, is it Paris?

Hot damn, and on the first day too. Give that man a cigar! Yes it is Paris, so fear not - even the bombs that miss are still well spent.

You are correct.....that is Paris. The wide streets kind of give it away.

And I'm pretty sure that's the Louvre towards the middle of the map...

Well, the remaining bombers have about 30 mins before I call ceasefire on day 1, but please wait until I have the updated target board posted before sending your next co-ordinates... the posting of the Day 2 board is the signal to start bombing, not the ceasefire... Blackhorse I'm looking at you.

Alright then, Day 1 bombing is now over, cease your fire! We have a few missing bombers, but overall a really good turnout, thanks guys! Please continue to hold fire until I get the results / new board up.

DAY 1 COMBAT FEED


1 [11:59 pm] BoBcat 6 - Blackhorse - Leads the way with a questionably early but daring strike on J12. The Squadrons first strike is also its first miss. Is the commander trying to give the rookies a chance?

2 [12:01 am] BoBcat 13 - ZJGilbert - Second to strike with a well-aimed shot at D1. The sector of the city is totalled, but no priority targets were damaged.

3 [12:01 am] BoBcat 4 - Kaiser83 - Aims his bird straight for D8, he must have a… DATE with destruction! Sadly his is the third bomb and the third miss.

4 [12:04 am] BoBcat 2 - IDBowman - Skilfully plants a high explosive charge in downtown J8, but all he hit were those pesky civilians.

5 [12:04 am] BoBcat 8 - Gravel - Gambles on a risky E5 river shot, but when the spray clears the only thing destroyed is his chance of scoring the first hit.

6 [12:34 am] BoBcat 14 - George Kaplan - Delivers devastation to a major urban crossroads in E10, and adds another miss to the squadron's tally.

7 [12:50 am] BoBcat 19 - Scotties22 - Bombs the living hell out of J10. Is that a train yard down there? Well not anymore!! Regardless, that's another miss.

8 [12:53 am] BoBcat 11 - I.Keenum - Perhaps hoping that there is explosive significance in the name, he directs his ire on C4, making the squadrons eighth-in-a-row miss. Who will get the first hit??

9 [1:03 am] BoBcat 10 - DrT999 - Playing it cool, he skirts the edge of the map to annihilate L7. What did L7 ever do to you doc? Well, now it's given you a reason to hate it. That's a miss.

10 [1:05 am] BoBcat 18 - SJ Hemingway - Sloppy Joe lines up a shot on D5, right next to the smoking crater Gravel made earlier. Concentrated fire is usually a good thing… but not for Joe, that's another miss.

11 [1:17 am] BoBcat 20 - MisterE - Brings the riverside café culture to a destructive end at D2. That's a few less artistic types to worry about, but no hit.

12 [1:28 am] BoBcat 7 - Roogles - Filled with resentment at the idea of the namesake Citroën (possibly), Roogles attacks sector C6 with passion. While this impulse is commendable, it is still a miss.

13 [1:30 am] BoBcat 3 - EC Outlaw - Going for the second river attack of the night, Outlaw bombs C2 back into the stone age. Well, that's one bridge they won't be using anymore, but no priority targets were damaged.

14 [2:00 am] BoBcat 17 - TAHarris - Plotting to get the maximum out of his payload, TA Harris heads for a high density urban area at D6. The bomb hits home, but yet another miss gets chalked up on the board.

15 [2:02 am] BoBcat 42 - FishFuzz - There's probably a good joke about shooting B4, but the only ones I can think of are inappropriate. This is getting worrisome now guys, B4 is ANOTHER miss.

16 [2:28 am] BoBcat1 - Tech2576 - Tech's Bomb knocks out no less than seven streets in one explosion In H1. Impressive, but still no hits.

17 [2:35 am] BoBcat22 - Cigar2you - After some initial confusion, Cigar2you unflinchingly carpet bombs sector A2. Unfortunately, flinching or not, his bombs still draw a blank.

18 [2:45 am] BoBcat 5 - GrampaGrossbart - Wildly off course for his intended bombing destination of Blackfriars, GG instead releases a vicious onslaught against C1. No enemy targets were harmed in the making of this bomb run.

19 [3:27 am] BoBcat 16 - Mozjo33 - A3 is the chosen sector for Mozjo's first run, and in keeping with tradition… it is unfortunately a miss.

20 [4:04 pm] BoBcat 21 - Dave in Philly - Waiting for the target city to be lulled into a false sense of security, he allows a full 12 hours to pass before dropping his payload on H5. Well, there goes the French parliament, but the squadron miss tally rises to twenty in a row.

Bombs deployed: 20
Missed: 20
Hit: 0
Targets eliminated: 0
Coordinate backups used: 0

Well, that's all the results from day one… and things did not go well for the BoBcats. 20 bombs and 20 misses. Ouch. So the squadrons first hit is still up for grabs, who will redeem the honour of the unit in Day two?

The target board currently stands as follows:



Day 2 Bombing is now open, good luck!

I don't mind the danger in a mission. I accept that. Even embrace it.


It's the waitin' for the results that I don't like.

Early reports indicate the target city has a eerie red glow over it... targets may have been hit. I'm just sayin'.
