General Report ..................................................................................................................................................................... (6.)

intercept mission over the south coast with stab and 6th staffel. On patrol stab spotted 1 yak, confirmed kill for Duro.

Continued patrol, We got a bit disorganized but we did find a group of 6 bombers with 3 yaks on fighter cover. We engaged and got all 3 of the fighters, but the bombers snuck off and we lost visual.

On RTB it seems yellows 10 got jumped by a P39 right over our airfield. He was unfortunately hit an unable to bail. Stab chased him down and I got the killing blow after Duro started a fuel leak and one of my cannon rounds set him ablaze.

Everyone else landed safely. 1x KIA = yellow 10
