    Everyone from 25th IAP pilots, except me [​IMG]

    Guys who flew at ICI - -ab-, -am-, aike, andy, africa, -rust-, -bw-, mish, -svk, monstr, frwind, can't remember all the callsigns... But the newcomers like --usd- and cristo are no worse [​IMG]

    Please count fomer 25th IAP officers who formed their own squads, Ukrainians: vzhik-, -ka- and others from 55th IAP, guys from Far East Tigers: -papa-, kazel- (-wild-), thundr and more.

    228th ShAD has many great fighters too, some of them I remember from ICI (-vit-, -mmx-, romeo-), and some FH veterans like -jagd- already earned great respect as extraordinary fighters.

    Sorry for mentioning people from ex-USSR, but I know them personaly, and with most of them we fought shoulder to shoulder for four years...

    Still remembering our duel with Finns (greatest experience I had, no matter that I was the first one killed, shot down by -pjk--), and Stalingrad EMC, in December,1998, when "Major I. M. Ratas" had 18 kills in frame one, while all the LW made 22 kills [​IMG] They could have done even worse without one anonymous Russian 109 piolt who flew for Germans [​IMG] LW was literally swept from the sky, so that Dancer, the CM, had to suspend flight operations for us while he looked for LW volunteers in MA [​IMG]

    Encountered him once, he - in Yak-3, me - in 109G10.

    I scored a few 13mm hits, but spent all 30mm because of his skilled evasives. He didn't attasck at all and left me to RTB. He said he flew Yak-3 for the first time, I was flying G10 for probably second day.

    Said "Salute!" to each other. Was a nice fight.

    Frankly speaking - I dare to say that if I was in a Yak and he was in a 109 it could end in my victory.

    There are many good pilots here, that's why I keep playing even if I suck [​IMG]
    However the only one I didn't even have the hope to shoot down was tpak

    However good anyone is, they're not invulnerable. Some are merely less vulnerable than others [​IMG]

    Even tpak dies with twin 30mm [​IMG] (ok, I'll stop the blatant bf110 plugs [​IMG] )

    Finally someone acknowledged my greatness! [​IMG]
    (Too bad it's one of my squadmates that did it. 110G2 rulez, btw [​IMG] )

    Anyway, to comemorate it, I danced in the skies at several places around the FH world, earning quite some paintings on my trusty ol' bf109F. Had some fun, too. [​IMG]

    Ok, let's stop with Mr. Yotsuya mode [​IMG]

    I'm glad we've got new players playing in FH. Today I actually saw over 70 people online, which was a new record for me. I'm looking forward to seeing more afluence records being broken in the future [​IMG]

    dont foget illo and doku.

    i remember once, after illo came back from AH, we were a pair. and we encountered viks in his low F4F facing our 2 109s.

    if i were more patient, i wouldnt have crashed [​IMG]
    but viks, even always on defensive, managed to hit me many times, almost getting a pk.. that bastard [​IMG]
    lucky i had a strong cockpit.

    illo and viks later disengaged each other.

    Then don't forget him... he's still here [​IMG]

    For me, one of my best WB experiences was here, in FH... hunting P38s and P51Bs with my humble Ki43... in 1944 [​IMG]
    But I can't forget The Animal's raid to gold CVs at ICI... 12 B25Hs.... [​IMG]

    Yep, he's still here, yet consumed with school, and having serious warbirds withdrawl. I think Vampyre refers to the 5-kill sortie I had once with a P-40, I was a wanted man, so that should be a thumbs up :).(my armorour replaced the 30 cal with hispanos)

    In the last year I've been a member of this great online group, some of the pilots who have kicked my ass across the map: kazel, slug, yukimi(yuki now?), pap(of course), usd, jagd, tpak, the Costa brothers(Ki-guy and Bf-110 brother), dennis, badgr, scooby, raven, vik-s, xela, illo, ekko, gee-to name a few ;-)).

    LOL, great post bizerk!

    i'm blushing ptah;-). but thx any how your not to bad yourself. tried the other night to drag cons away while you dropped troops if i remember correctly. tough though when you get outnumbered, but always fun. even got --ra-- when he was taking off real nice to. but he managed to get airborne again and got me while i shot others :-( think i had three that sorties a a couple asists. not to shabby, would probably do beyyer if i would just turn around and land with a kill. just can't help it to stay and fight to the last drop of fuel and ammo one of my bidggest faults. but never say die is a good approach.
