It didn't seem like much of a shot at the time. Even Ethan didn't think much of it when his Fokker Dr I pilot took at 200-foot tail shot on Rick Lacy's Camel. One of Ethan's guns was already jammed. The shot scored only two hit factors of damage.
But it was enough.
That single bullet turned out to be the margin between victory and defeat in one of the most bizarre Red Baron Fights in the game's 23-year history. Dice were rolled and the sides stacked up like this:
- Dory, Sopwith Camel 130
- Rick, Sopwith Camel 130 (CPT Gordon Firth-Hewitt, 4/0)
- Ethan, Fokker Dr I (Citrudes Mercedes, 1/0)
- Stephen Dale, Albatros DVa [rev] (Alex Godfrey, 2/0)
- Stephen, Albatros DVa [rev] (OF ST Sabine Schorst, 7/1)
