KB Strike Aftermath
I have to say going through the actual strikes that KB kind of failed to impress. Weather was cloudy in the morning and light rain in the afternoon.
This is all the KB managed to achieve?

The damage to the BBs are of course nothing I´m too happy about. But I´m mostly baffled at the inabilities of the KB planes to hit something. I quick count gave me roughly 350 strike planes flying during the day. I´m assuming that is pretty close to the full KB if not actually all he has.
Perhaps its the allied flak that is having an effect?
Here are the losses! Not too shabby! I was Erik I wouldn´t be too happy with the exchange. That is if the BBs make it home....
