Squadron XXIII
P [R] High Elf
This team is inspired in the Allied Squadron depicted in the solitaire tabletop game Wings Over France published by Lambourne Games.

From www.boardgamegeek.com

"Wings Over France is a solitaire WWI wargame, simulating the day-to-day operations of a RFC Squadron during the month of April 1917, known as "Bloody April" because of the heavy losses suffered by the allied air force. The game puts the player in control of 1 to 3 RFC Flights based in Arras, France.

The objective is to sweep the skies clear of Huns in support of the Arras ground offensive, but just surviving would be an achievement.

Each squadron has to undertake a number of missions each day (determined randomly), but with limited resources and personnel.

The various missions include rece's, bombing raids, destroying enemy balloons etc - but all will involve dogfights with enemy aircraft - with the game easily capable of handling over 20 aircraft fighting in the skies simultaneously."

I really recommend the game. It's a real challenge to keep your guys alive and win the game.

In the squadron's debut match the soon to be a star Ben 'Lucky' McNair honoring his mote, got a Larson scoring 2 completions + 1 TD + 1 Interception + 1 casualty in this match.

Team was destroyed in 6 turns at the start of the UI XI losing many team assets. After some games trying to rebuild I noticed that we were at too high TV and there was no way to recover.
Following Pacosillas's advice we fired all injured guys and started a big overhaul of the team.
