Greetings gentlemen, this Sunday's Vintage Mission will feature a new early war map that has only been run once before and has been modified a bit from the original version. 

 

Here is the situation: It is a desperate mission in the Sissonne sector that puts the Entente scouts having to destroy trucks and trains just behind the enemy lines as it appears a counter attack is massing after a failed Entente offensive and limited ground attack 2 seaters are available. 

 

Two points to pay attention to. 

1. "Laser flak" has at long last been eliminated on both sides and over the mud.  The machine guns are still there and are a threat, but it isn't suicide to attempt a low level attack.

2.  Most airframes are limited on both sides and aircraft replace individually every 5min, however if you run completely out of a type of airframe, it is 30min before they will be replaced.  So, use the aircraft wisely and try to return them to the aerodromes when possible.

Entente is furnished with unlimited DH2's and Central has unlimited EIII's.

 

Good luck gentlemen!

 

 

 

Standoff in Sissonne

 

Date: November, 1916

 

Intel report: Recent Intelligence reports indicate that the Germans might prepare a counter attack after our failed offensive. A lot of troop movements have been spotted just behind their lines.  French escadrilles stationed at Bonnemaison Ferme are operating from forward airfields at Vauxcere and Maizy, supported by a small contingent of RFC and AFC Squadrons. In a desperate attempt to prevent an immediate counter attack, the scouts are ordered to strafe the enemy transports.

 

**Note: Limited Entente reconnaissance two seaters have been pressed into service as bombers, however reinforcements are not available and Entente two-seater airframes will not replace if lost!** 

 

German HQ is anxious to know what the state is of the French defences therefore a photo recon missions have been requested. If the recons are succesful, German bombers are to attack targets behind the French lines.

 

 

Mission objectives:

 

Entente forces will attack enemy transports; vehicles and trains. Central Forces will have to defend the transports and recon the enemy lines.  How to complete a recon sortie: Take the special recon plane (Recon Plane 1,2,3,4) and fly to one of the endpoints of the recon area at the designated height (see map). Follow subtitles. You must land at an active airfield.

 

Weather report:  We will attempt to match real world weather conditions at the time of the mission.

I think rather than a memorial fly over style dedication, we will try for a massive over the mud furball dogfight to commemorate the 102nd anniversary of the death of the ace Oswald Boelcke.

 

We'll shoot for an in game, on screen announcement 20min prior to the event.  The on screen message will direct those who wish to participate to join up over their respective aerodromes, then we will push an on screen message declaring "fight's on" at which point Central and Entente forces will meet center of the mud East / West and engage in one massive dogfight. 

 

Should be some good footage if we get 25+ pilots in one big dogfight.  Good luck gentlemen,  S!

Unluckily I only caught the tail-end of the big fights...saw some pretty big dust-ups on the horizon though...

 

Decided to bench the usual 'smart' flying and go in for some all-out senseless dogfighting...was fun!!!!

 

Ironically, I collided with one of the J2s moments before the Boelcke memorial image ;)

Just be glad we're not using names of historical J2 pilots as nicks, like J5 and US103 do. Otherwse, J2 Bohme would be only choice for you ;).

Good stuff as usual tho.
