Spooky Kittens by MikeDoscher Spooky Kittens by MikeDoscher
Death in a perfect sunset, somewhere at the edge of the Venusian atmosphere.

Italian short range fighters with oversize Le Prieur rockets attack an Austro-Hungarian air vessel during the blockade of Phobos by the Central Powers. Smuggled aboard a cargo vessel, the 'Gattina Spettrale' squadron was not particular effective against the forces there, but the presence of allied fighters so far inside their own lines had the Imperial forces searching for carriers that didn't exist for nearly a month. This splitting of their fleet made the blockade untenable, and Phobos was relieved.

I mainly see the fighter design - and I love it!

The bar in the front looks like a docking device?

Is this a reference to Italian saboteurs who rode torpedoes to infiltrate enemy harbours? I know the bulk of that happened in WW2, but the idea itself was pioneered in WW1 when such a unit sank the Austro-Hungarian battleship "Viribus Unitis".

Neat! What's the backstory here? It's clearly an alternate history with an apparent WWI in space.

Thanks. :) It's part of an attempt to explore how history (and particularly World War I) might have differed following the events of The War of the Worlds.
