Wingnuts Tactically RetreatCrius.net pilots evacuate to the Corsair System this week while they regroup and conduct some under cover recon in Dralthis recovered from the Ras Nik'hra. The Tiger's Claw has also taken on some new pilots - Jazz and Doomsday just joined the crew. WC fans are planning to complete the Secret Missions 2 together this month and move on to Wing Commander 2 in April. Here's Skanks with the latest mission reports.
Near Firekka 2: Back in the pancakes... this troopship better be worth it! The Gratha on the way to Nav 1 don't seem convinced so we afterburn to Nav 1. Amazingly the wing of Hhriss there don't realise we aren't Kilrathi! The Drayman jumps out... I hope we find it again soon. Get to Nav 2 where a few Jalthi are buzzing around, and thankfully the Drayman is here too! The unsuspecting Jalthi are made short work of, and it seems the marines have done their job too. We hook up with the Drayman and head home. Unfortunately the Kilrathi have other ideas and send a few Krants to stop us. They seem to underestimate us however as we easily blast through them and get the Drayman safely back under the protective wing of the Tiger's Claw.
Interlude: Doomsday and Jazz are back to the TCS Austin, Jazz seems a bit funny with me and seems insistent we'll meet again. Both of them seemed fairly decent pilots so I hope so.
Corsair 3: The Tiger's Claw is under attack! Hunter and I launch in Raptors, thankfully it's only some Dralthi and Salthi. Two of the Dralthi even turn tail and run! Nav 1 is clear, but Nav 2 finds a Ralari guarded by 3 Grathas. We manage to take out the fighter cover before turning ours guns on the destroyer. Nav 3 finds a Snakeir guarded by a mere 2 Jalthi, this is worrying, where is the rest of it's fighters? We take the carrier and its fighters out before high tailing it back to the Tiger's Claw. Surprisingly only 2 Dralthi are attacking her, perhaps the ones from earlier returned? We take them out in short order.
Interlude: Iceman says they have founds 2 human traitors. They belong to a group called the Society of Manderins, what could make a person turn traitor when we are fighting for our very survival? Knight has decided to pass up becoming a flight instructor, a shame, he'd make a good one.
