As Luftwaffe, I set up a number of raids, not really knowing what I'm doing, but just trying to paste a bunch of airfields.

Hitting the SE England airfields, big raids on Kenley and Biggin Hill, but raids also on many of the other secondary fields:

Manston (damage: 44)
Lympne (damage: 27)
Hawkinge (damage: 83)
Detling (damage: 35)
West Malling (damage 30)
Eastchurch (damage 15)
Gravesend (damage 3)
Biggin Hill (damage 84)
Kenley (damage 35)

You can see Biggin Hill and Hawkinge really took a beating.

I staggered the attacks at 10-minute intervals, at different altitudes, to try to overwhelm British defenses. I had two raids on Biggin Hill, one following the other. Also, each raid had close fighter escort, plus a squadron of high escort.

It's funny how things look bad, loss-wise:

German:
Aircraft Lost: 54
Pilots Lost: 53
Score: 188

British:
Aircraft Lost: 30
Pilots Lost: 10
Score: 113

But I get the win. It must be the airfield damage that gives me the win. The summary says I get 158 points for sector AF damage, and 14 for terror bombing.

Early it looked bad, I had 43 losses, and the British had 12, but I think the first wave took the brunt of a beating, then things started to even out, then when the bombs started falling, I scored big.

The British lost 6 Defiants. I was surprised to find those still in action in August, 1940.

Since I don't know the implications of what I've accomplished, it's on to the week-long campaign to see what that takes. Losing 24 He-111s in one day surely can't be sustained over a longer campaign?

Did you send fighter sweeps in first? That will usually soften up the airfields.

No, I didn't, but it occurred to me it might be a good idea to have tried that.

So how is that education treating you with EDBTR ?

The sig is to suggest that WITP is the PhD of wargames, or that, in a long string of letters after your name, putting "WITP-AE" would be an impressive addition.

By comparison, EDBTR is an MS.

Easy to win 1 day campaign because of the points system.
Harder to play as defenders if you ask me.
