You're in the cockpit of your British fighter.
High cloud is backlit by the moon.
Silhouetted against the cloud, and right in your sights, you see this:

Do you tear your enemy out of the sky, or let your friend pass in peace?
Thumb on firing button....

What entry goes in your log book?

You are at your anti-aircraft guns.
You may be Allied or Axis.
Above, you see this against a bright sky, which denies you seeing details:

You make your report:

I am in the Allied/Axis Forces.
I did/did not fire at this aircraft because it was a...........

I also think its a BF108 and an FW200 Condor.

The Condor you definitely shoot down, for Taifun it depends on the situation.

The 108 is not that fast and not armed, if over england it's probably someone trying to defect. If the tactical situation allows try to escort it to the nearest base, else shoot it down.

Commendable recognition, men! :thumbsup:
The Taifun (108) was put in because of its similarity to the Master I, so I'm pleased to see at least one report of a Miles. ;)
The FW was probably nigh on impossible given the lack of detail. It was in fact a 200K2 KURIER. I'll let you have that one.

I'm calling a secret meeting of the sneaky commanders, so polish your spectacle lenses in readiness.
