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

I was ostensibly flying top-cover with discordiant -- cloud cover meant we were simply a detached pair.

Encountered 4x hurricanes in south. Pushed through merge and provided cover while raven flight racked them up. Then engaged two Il-2s, damaging one. Raven flight was then bounced by 4(?)x P-39. I heavily damaged one on Kraken, but was then forced to run at emergency power. Took some hits at various points, but the remainder of the flight was able to clean things up.
