Hi Gerhard. Thanks for your message, sounds good to me. I hope we can find a suitable time to fly together. How many squads are taking part in the campaign, how many pilots in each mission?

We're flying SE campaigns saturdays, sundays and tuesdays, euro evenings.

Kind regards,

Camo

S! Camo,

We 5./JG27 are flying this campaign against 69th GIAP, so only 2 squadrons as it was meant to be a 1vs1 campaign, but since we are rather low on numbers at the moment we requested for some assistance from other axis squadrons, currently we have 2 untaken pilot seats ( Bf-109 ) on our side, but as I said before I think we can increase that number ( that does mean unfortunately that the enemy will have more planes as well). So for this campaign I do not ask for your entire squadron to fly along with us but just the occasional pilot who would like to give us a helping hand ;) . After this campaign we are planning to compete against 69th GIAP in a SEOW campaign with possible multiple squadrons, so I think we will see each other more often when our campaign ends :)

In one mission we can currently have a total of:

16 enemy pilots
and 13 of ours

We predict that that at the current state of the campaign we have 2 Fighter pilot seats open and 1 110 seat. So at least 3 of you guys can fly along with us in the next mission,
The number of pilots differs from the mission, in an attack mission we can have the 13 I stated, but in an defence mission we can only yield 8 ( only fighters ) which will probably all be taken by us from 5./JG27, but there might be spots open just in case people don't turn up.

Thus far we have destroyed:

4/6 MIG-3
7/16 I-153
3/34 I-16
1/4 Yak-1
5/6 SB bombers
2/2 Spotter plane

In a defence mission the soviets can only yield 12 aircraft of only 2 different types, so their possibilities are: 3 Yak1s and 9 I-16/I-153 or 2 Mig-3 and 10 I-16/I-153.
We can yield 8 109's 4 Stuka and/or 110 and 1 spotter plane. So we already did a good job on destroying their rare modern aircraft so they can only have very little number of them in the future.

This campaign we fly is hand made by us with intel from both 69th GIAP and us 5./JG27, just a regular co-op campaign. The soviets have invited us to play this totally new for us SEOW campaign which we don't know anything about, we've agreed that when we finish our campaign that we will consider flying a SEOW with them, maybe together with Lentolaivue 34 as well?
I certainly look forward to fly SEOW campaign with you.
Gerhard Homuth kirjoitti:What I understand from SEOW was that you would control all forces, land sea and air, and your victory will make progress in the war, but there's the thing I don't get, battles are not won by the airforce, they are to make sure they can assist the ground forces and always remain their to assist the ground forces, Or do I totally misunderstood, since I have also never taken part in one. :?
Right, you would control all forces and more. There are victory objectives specific to campaign. For example capture airfield X or town Y before mission 20. Ground forces play a major role since they can capture cities, airfields and so on. However as in real war air force play a major role too since you can bomb bridges, factories (affects on supply), and enemy ground forces. If you get air superiority quicly then your ground attack planes and bombers can work freely on ground targets, which can easily make a decisive difference in the campaign. So in order to win you would need good mission planning (which would require air recoinnance of enemy troop positions), good fighters, and good ground attack pilots. Thus imagine SEOW as pretty complex strategy game with IL-2 as the platform.

But first of all SEOW needs pilots. So I hope 5./JG27 and LLv34 can develop good relationships to fight together against the enemy. After that those who are interested to plan and plot strategies, tactics, and missions in SEOW can begin to learn to do that. I think we can together figure out who will do what. So if you don't want to plan things in SEOW or if you need help in planning, worry not, help will be at hand.

But as for now, lets fly together 8-) So could you please tell the exact time you fly your current campaign?

You have done great job! But don't underestimate Valya in I-16 :o :shock:

We understand that you give us seats what is left, so no worries. It is your campaign after all 8-)

Yes unfortunately there might be a chance that for instance, if 4 of you would attend on a certain mission night and there are only 3 attack aircraft seats that the 4th one cannot fly with us, but he can however fly a spotter plane :D , 69th GIAP already did that, but broke the rules and armed it with bombs, but never mind, we forgave them :D

We continue the Ostfront on the 8th of January at 19:00 GMT+1, by then we should all be sober from holidays and might have done some training together already, we always train on Wednesday on 21:00 GMT+1 s and Saturdays at 18:00 GMT+1. These training times are made because we all come from different countries, we got 5 from the US, 4 from the UK someone from Ireland and myself from The Netherlands, with these times we get the most attendance.

Our vent details, you'll mostly find me and Farber around there :)

Alright thanks of the information. We have SEOW missions on Wednesday and Saturday on campaigns soon to be ending, but at least some of us will try to come meet and train with you. There is things to be discussed too.

So who is planning all the missions (air and ground) for the axis?

Hello Untamo

We do since it's our campaign, our leader Rudolph Farber makes all the missions and all the traffic on the ground, in cooperation with 69th GIAP we will balance the mission and we give them the planes they will be using, but they are limited by the rules we put up, for instance that they can only use 2 fighter types in any mission, so they have to plan it with some strategy.

We planned this short campaign to be 5 missions, we still have 3 to go, which 2 of them will be an attack for us.

Gerhard Homuth

By the way, looks like patch 4.10 from TD will be just around the corner :)

Ok, just give us the server info, what mods to use, and rules that we must be aware of and we will try to be there on mission start :) ... And a briefing posted somewhere would also be nice to have before going into the server :)

We use mainly TeamSpeak2, but I can work as a liaison officer and come to your Ventrilo server.

Did I understand you correctly, that the mission is flown on Saturdays, 7:00 GMT+1, as in early morning? Or do you mean 19:00 ?

Whoops, that should be 19:00 GMT+1 , that fitted best for 69th GIAP, since they also have lots of SEOW going on.
Yeah sure, you're welcome to drop by at any time in our vent, for the axis side there are little rules from our side, but we stick to basic rules that 69th GIAP insisted we must use. I'll post them up, but they can also be found at their site I believe.

For the briefing part, it will either be escorting or attacking enemy bombers and fighters. You'll be fully briefed and brought to full awareness but that shall have to be done on Ventrilo or your Teamspeak channel, since this is an open part of your forums ;)

We fly with UP 2.01 but HSFX will do fine as well since that is what the Soviets are using.
Server details are: 81.104.215.73:21000

And yes Mikko, it would be the Storch performing the spotter role, bloody love that aircraft, lands on a strip of 10 meters :D
