The battle for Krymskaya continues.

Our lines have been holding, however, our forces have yet to make a successful counterattack. Our mission today was to escort some Bf-110's to hit enemy armor units.

Once we met up with the 110's we were immediately jumped by Yaks from the Normandi Nimen French Legion. I could shoot down 1 and my flight got the other 2. No contacts were spotted after and we RTB.
