Ground attack!

I always prefer to be in control up high against fighters or bombers where skill is the deciding factor in a fight, but today we were tasked by the command to hit enemy armor crossing our northern lines. We were escorted by a group of 4 Fw-190s to our objective. As we were approaching the target we encountered 2 Il-2 ground attack planes. Our fighter escort took care of them! Give em' hell boys!

We all hit our targets and RTB without incident.
