OK, roll 2D6.  7 or better to return.

I was on the fence about getting this game, but after this it's on my eventual to-buy list!

Just need to see if Stagger's plane made it back and then I can post the official mission results.

Again, sorry for all the rules screw ups on my end.  I had a lot of fun running it.  BTW you're all a bunch of filthy enablers!  I'm already an admitted Lancaster junkie.  As a result of running this session and watching Dam Busters again (I needed screen caps), I ended up buying the board game Bomber Command, 4 more books on Bomber Command, a 3-DVD set on the Dam Busters, and 2 T-shirts with Lancaster decals.


I need help....

One more Lancaster touches down on England's soil. Still, it will be a somber celebration down at the pub tonight.

Four of nine bombers return from the raid.  The Mohne and Eder dams are breached.  The Sorpe was not attacked by the Main Force.

Quote
Barrage balloons will soon float over the remaining dams in the Ruhr, and Germany's Ministry of Armaments and Munitions will devote material and personnel to the repairing of the dams.  Recovery will take weeks, if not months.  Meanwhile, the British press is informed and headlines declare victory.  A Victoria Cross will be awarded, as well as many other decorations.  Vindicated, Barnes Wallis will continue work on other unique types of ordnance.  The war goes on...






Congratulations, you matched the historical mission outcome which is rated as a brilliant success. 



I hope you guys enjoyed it.  I did.  I played the same scenario on my own twice and it was interesting to see just how differently the mission can play out.  My waves failed a lot of nav checks on my first run through and the waves got spread out between zones and just ripped apart by hazards.  On my second, the bombers made it to their targets OK but I had bad luck on the bombing runs and missed with most.  I was lucky in that I only lost 2 bombers but I only managed to take out one dam and damage another.
