    Night Attack by danperin

    OK, I think I picked, at random, probably the most difficult Single Mission out there! It's a night time bomber mission by Blenheims on enemy-held Le Havre docks. Everything from take off, ingress, attack, egress, and landing was in the pitch dark!!! I shall get my revenge on danperin for this!!! LOL

    Actually, it's a great Single Mission. It loaded and played flawlessly, even though danperin created it 5 years ago! It's actually a terrifying mission to fly - all instruments (ok, I cheated, I hit "A" for autopilot. I kept crashing. ) The included nighttime paint scheme for the Blenheim IV also loaded in fine and looks terrific.

    Seriously, thank you, Dan!!

    The readme.txt for installation needs a slight revision to delete the "Team Fusion MOD" aspect of the 1C Softclub folder (it was valid in 2016; no longer). The rest of the readme.txt is perfect.

    Note: this is not a mission for beginners, unless they're willing to hit "A" for autopilot, speed up to 16x for the cross channel ride, then slow down to real time as you approach the harbour to see how horrific it is to fly into the searchlights.

    Recommended for experienced multi-engine pilots (except Snapper).

    Haven't been able to turn on my computer for eight days, now! Sigh! Christmas is a tough time if you're a sim pilot! Lucky I'm not addicted!

    But it's been great fun having the family stay, and being kept on our toes by the Grandkiddliwinks. I bought them a target shooting game, with two 'guns' that fired soft balls. It only took ten minutes before I had shot one of them, to much hilarity and rolling about on the floor but then spent the rest of the afternoon 'fighting the Alamo' as they both chased me up the corridor. Meanwhile, the target we were supposed to be shooting at stood forlorn and neglected in the corner! Come back 9./JG52! All is forgiven!

    But this special night time mission really appeals. How have I missed it? It must be something to do with the fact that I virtually never play single player.

    Having read so many biographies of Lancaster crews, battling across a blacked out Europe, map reading under a moonlit night and if they were lucky, bombing a target by use of Gee, this sortie would be great! Useful practice for instrument flying with TruSky, too! Thanks Snapper and Dan P

    Happy New Year everyone!
