Designer Notes
This is a one life event. It time allows we may have two frames. Downed pilots may gun for buffs.

CM Notes

Keep track of the time to make sure the B-26's strike the target within the 1 hour limit. If they go over the 1 hour limit the Axis receive 200 points. Ask CM's to fly the 163's if possible. Launch 2 - 163's 5 minutes after the Allies roll, and then the next 2 - 163's 10 minutes after the Allies rolled. Let the 163 pilots reup at A75 in the 109's. Remind the Allied pilots to look for the 163's. Me-163 pilots may straff city buildings as they dive in. 

Let the players know the path of the 163's. Directly from A75 and A88 heading toward the target city in 13.11.4.

163's should be below 1000k, and close to 380mph, (about 20% throttle)

If more then 50 players use V173 V2 site as additional target. Allow the 109s to up from A88 also.
