Salute gentlemen, and great big thanks to all who came out for the epic "Battle of the Somme 1916" VM Sunday!

 

We had around 40 pilots and observers for much of the mission and had a great many memorable fights and scraps.  Many old veterans came out of the woodwork including several from the original Syndicate Squadron, who made all these great historical maps possible.  Jasta5 was also out in force and their Eindecker fighter contingent was the talk of many a conversation at Entente aerodrome mess halls ;)

 

Victory goes to Central forces although we tied via completed objectives, the Central forces carried the day with points and victories. 

 

We hope to see you all again in the air again next Sunday at 1900GMT, mission to to be announced soon!

 

Again big thanks to all who came out to fly, and on behalf of J2_SteveF and myself we'd like to wish you all a Happy New Year and good luck in all to come. 

 

As always, we will keep hosting the missions as long as you gentlemen come out to fly.  Sundays at 1900GMT until end of hostilities.

 

Respectfully,

 

Cuban

Sunday Jan.20 - 1900GMT - Bombers Over the Channel 1918

 

Greetings all!  It's time to grab your life preservers for this Sunday will see us over the English Channel in the area of Neiuport for the classic Channel Bombers map.  This map has been modified slightly from the original with a 1918 plane set.  The original map was a summer 1917 set. 

 

The map has 6 objectives for each side to complete.  First to complete all six will win the round.  The big prize on this map is the "enemy convoy" objective.  It is comprised of an entire convoy of 6-8 naval vessels, 2 of which are battle cruisers which are heavily armed with AAA.  The first bomber flights in should concentrate on taking down the cruisers' air defences. 

 

***When in doubt about whether ships, mine sweepers or submarines are enemy or friendly, you can set your gunner to fire at ground targets and make a quick close pass by the vessel to see if your gunners fire.   DO NOT FIRE on naval targets unless you're certain they are enemy!***

 

Date: October, 1918

 

Objectives:  Destroy all targets, marked on the map by a RED flag. The side that destroys all targets first will win.  Move over the target with the cursor to see a description of the target. Please note that the flag will disappear when the target(s) has been destroyed.

 

Weather:  TBA in game briefing.

 

Good luck gentlemen S!

Sunday Jan.27 1900GMT - St. Mihiel Salient - May 1918

 

 

St Mihiel Salient - May 1918

This week's Sunday Vintage Mission will see us in the St. Mihiel Salient area of the map in mid 1918.  This map is set several months before the big St. Mihiel Offensive that started in Sept. 1918.


Date: May 16, 1918

Mission Objective:  Each side needs to accomplish three important objectives. The side that completes all three objectives first will win.

Entente is tasked with photo recons and Central is tasked with artillery spotting.

These are subtitle based recons and artillery spots so there will be no camera icon, you will be directed by subtitles on screen.  Subtitles are visible to all players on your side to aid in coordinating flights and escorts.

Once pictures are complete, you will get a subtitle message saying to return to base. Once pics are complete, there will no more subtitles if you stay above recon area.

To be successful on a photo-recon mission you need at least 10 photographs at 2500-3500m (10,000ft).

***IMPORTANT NOTE:  PHOTO RECONS MUST LAND AT THE TWO SEATER AERODROME FROM WHICH THEY LEFT***

Each completed objective releases a batch of better performing aircraft.

To successfully direct your artillery fire you need to hover over the observation area at 2500 m for at least 10 minutes. Hover with your mouse over the target icon to see a description of the target.  You will get a message if you leave the area telling you to return. The spot "clock" resumes where it left off when you re-enter the area.

The only plane that can make photos or do artillery spotting is the two-seater that is named likewise. Only one such plane (per side) can be in the air at any time. There are more two-seaters available for escort purposes. There is no particular order in which the targets should be accomplished.

Weather: TBA in mission brief.

Good luck gentlemen!

Sunday Feb.24 - 1900GMT - Somme High Recons

 

 

Greetings gentlemen, this week's Sunday Vintage mission will see us in the Somme sector, late in the war.  As always, air superiority is the name of the game to allow army observation aircraft to recon the front and provide intelligence and spotting to their respective forces.  This map allows for both high altitude plane sets as well as limited aircraft, which must be used wisely.
This "Battle for Intelligence" is pretty straight forward, first side to 100 pics wins.  We will roll to another map if / after this one completes.  

 

***IMPORTANT NOTE:  AIRSTART RECON AIRCRAFT WILL NOT GET CAMERA ICON UPON SPAWNING IN, BUT CAMERA WILL APPEAR OVER TARGET***

 

Mission start:  1900GMT

Somme - High Recons 1918

Battle for Intelligence - September 1918

Location: Somme river, France

Mission objectives:

Both Allied and Central Squadrons are ordered to: (1) Fly offensive patrols over enemy lines to intercept enemy aircraft and (2) to protect their own reconaissance aircraft.

Description:  Both AI and human flown reconaissance two-seaters will have to photograph strategic targets. The more photographs they can bring home safely, the better they will be prepared for the upcoming offensive. The first side that obtains 100 photographs will have won this "battle for intelligence". Any marked target on the map may be used to obtain more photos.

Photographs can be taken by the recon aircraft from any altitude between 1500-4000 m.

Weather report: TBA

 

Good luck all pilots and observers!

Wasn't it the one where German recon airspawns didn't get camera icon unless he dived back and landed on the field? Or was it fixed?

That's the one with the arty spotting mission isn't it? I believe this is the one with the AI recons.

Our pilots of two-seater aircraft do not see interest in this event and will not take part in it. Accordingly, the fighter pilots, too.

Apologies gentlemen, I was out of town and didn't see the posts and questions.  Yes this one is purely a "battle for intelligence".  First side to bag 100 photo frames wins.  The bug was fixed (sort of), no camera icons on spawn in for anyone, but they all work over target.  I hate that I missed this one because it's one of my favorites.

 

Sorry to hear that Emely, maybe next mission.

Date: June 13, 1917

 

This week takes us to the front lines south of Ypres, Flanders for the Battle of Messines, mid 1917.

 

***Note:  Both aerodromes on either side can be destroyed and taken out of action for 20 minutes.  Subtitles will inform all of destruction and repair of aerodromes***

 

Mission objectives: -Each side will have 6 primary targets to destroy, indicated by a flag on the map. Before a target becomes active, it has to be reconnoitered by making 10 photographs. The flag will then turn red. When a primary target has been destroyed, the flag will be removed from the map.

 

Secondary targets are any vehicle, trains or tanks and balloons in enemy territory.

 

-For photo recon missions only the designated planes "Recon" can trigger the photo sequence!

 

-Photo recons need to land safely at an active base to complete their mission!

 

Winning conditions: First team to complete all six objectives first.

Bro, when you put planes on the map - what place do you think ?? I love H17, but I can't take it, when there are 17 people for the British, and only six for the Germans! Because for H17 you need at least an albatross number five, not three !! Nobody wants to fly on the shit and get in the face ... Do you have brains, or just historical reference books ?? !!

I must say I really enjoyed the planeset this week. I love both the Albatros D.II and D.III, and they are a good match for the Nieuport 17, SPAD 7 and even the “110hp” Camel. I even think Central would have been fine with the regular 180hp Halberstadt CL.II (she’s actually inexplicably a tad slower than the 160hp Roland), which would have made more sense historically than the 200hp version — a mid-1918 field mod.

Numbers were fine, too, it was more or less 2:1 for Entente when I joined, which makes sense historically.

My only criticism would be to stop assigning the same mission to Central as you would to Entente. Excursions far into enemy lines simply shouldn’t happen. For that the machines are too slow and poor climbers. Central should be outnumbered and defending their lines in large formations, whereas Entente should be coming over all across the line, more or less unchallenged except where Central has local air superiority.

Central two-seaters could be assigned some light low altitude trench attack or photography/artillery support, but not much more.

Looking forward to next week!

One day I will fly for those who have more. Will you be satisfied with 3x1, or maybe 5x1 will be better? History and other lies ...

Just to point out that Cuban and J2_Steve do not make these maps or missions. They are simply hosting the old Syndicate missions on a server for us to enjoy. (At least as far as I know)

 

It's just wrong to take it out on Cuban.

You're more than welcome not to fly if you don't want to Emely, although we love having you onboard.

 

As Gamecock mentioned, Syndicate Squadron made these maps years ago, we just host them. Respectfully, we are not going to change the planesets to suit your taste.

S! Bender  I wish I had the map making skill to really edit these maps.  Goodness knows I've tried....for hours and days, but it's just beyond me.  I can alter little things around the edges but have not yet mastered major changes.  That being said, I'm notoriously stubborn, so I'll keep trying :)  Thanks gentlemen for the kind words and thanks for flying S!

Verdun - Black September 1918

The Meuse-Argonne Offensive

 

Date: September 26, 1918

 

Mission objectives:

 

Entente: To support the Army offensive, reconnaissance aircraft have to photograph the rear trenches of the enemy as well as possible strategic targets.

 

Central: Protect airspace, reconnaissance planes have to photograph key areas.  After all the photo recon sorties have been completed, bombers will be made ready for a specific target.  Please note that all recons can complete any of the recce objectives.

 

Historical Background: The Meuse-Argonne Offensive, also called the Battle of the Argonne Forest, was a part of the final Allied offensive of World War I that stretched along the entire western front.

 

Both sides were using advanced airfields during the day to support the ground forces and to take out enemy balloons.

 

Weather report:  TBA in mission briefing

 

Good luck all pilots and observers S!

Sunday, March 24 - 1900GMT - Battle of Vimy Ridge / Bloody April Revisited

 

 

As a warm up for Jasta5's Bloody April upcoming event, this week will see us on Syndicate's Battle of Vimy Ridge / Bloody April Revisited map.  Although this year's Bloody April event will not be on this section of the front, we will feature the same scout plane set to give everyone some practice and stick time.

Battle of Vimy Ridge

Date: April 10, 1917

Location:  Vimy, North of Arras

Weather report: Heavy clouds at 1500 m, poor visibility. Wind 5 m/s from the West

Mission objectives: Both sides will be given new orders via subtitles in 40 min intervals. ***Once an objective is active, it remains active for the entire mission until completed***

Mission Notes:  All AI aircraft have been removed.  Flak has been turned down to lowest level, machine guns are at medium.

The Allied forces are on the offensive. Their air force has to support the ground troops by targeting tactical targets and flying photo recon patrols to determine the enemy defences.The Central forces are on the defensive. They have to make sure the Allied aircraft are kept away from the battlefield while the bombers attack the enemy's line of communications.  Orders will be repeated every few minutes by subtitles. Please follow these, you can't complete objectives until the order has been given!

(note: you can't see subtitles in the hangar). Certain planes are only available when they are needed (bombers, recons).

Photo Recon: Fly to one of the specific areas at medium to high altitude (2000-3500m) in the aircraft named "Photo Recon" and wait for the camera icon when over one end of the leg. Make photos using the camera icon and cover the whole area. The higher you fly, the easier it is to have complete coverage. Don't forget to bring a camera!

Historical Background:  The Battle of Vimy Ridge was a military engagement fought primarily as part of the Battle of Arras, in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region of France, during the First World War. The main combatants were the Canadian Corps, of four divisions, against three divisions of the German Sixth Army. The battle, which took place from 9 to 12 April 1917, was part of the opening phase of the British-led Battle of Arras, a diversionary attack for the French Nivelle Offensive.

Thanks to all who flew with us Sunday, we ran a smaller “dawn to dusk” sized map in anticipation of the numbers being smaller due to possible “bloody April burnout” but we had 30 players at one point and above 25 for a couple of hours! Good fights above below and amongst the heavy clouds in the skies of France.

Sorry for the lack of announcements lately, we will have one up this week. Thanks again

Saw that in the parser. A lot of hits too which is confusing as you were never in my field of view except on my first pass which was a large angle deflection and I remained above for the entire encounter.  My apologies.

Sunday - May 19 - 1700GMT - Battle of the Somme - 1916 ***Note: mission start time is 1 hour earlier than usual Sunday VM***

Greetings gentlemen, it is time to run the early war map legendary Somme Offensive - Battle of Flers-Courcelette - 15 September 1916 once again. This will be in prelude to the upcoming Eagle of Lille / Der Adler von Lille Tournament created by Jasta 99 that we will be hosting in a few weeks to commemorate the ace Max Immelmann. We are looking at June 2 which would mark the 103rd anniversary of his being shot down by a French pilot but awarded the Iron Cross 2nd Class for preserving his aircraft. Details to follow...

Mission Start: 1700GMT

Both sides will be given new orders in 45 min intervals. The Allied forces are on the offensive. Their air force has to support the ground troops by targeting tactical targets and flying photo recon patrols to determine the enemy defences.

The Central forces are on the defensive. They have to make sure the Allied aircraft are kept away from the battlefield while the bombers attack the enemy's line of communications.

Weather report: Heavy cloud cover at 5000ft/1400m, foggy. Wind 4 m/s, from the North

Orders will be repeated every minute by subtitles. Please follow these, NOTE: you can't complete objectives until the order has been given, however once orders are given, the objective is active until destroyed. In other words, you have the entire game time to take down an objective once given. List of objectives in order is as follows:

Entente-
1. Bombers have to destroy the train station at Bapaume
2. Bombers have to destroy artillery near Courcelette to protect our tanks
3. Bombers have to destroy enemy transports on the Albert-Bapaume road
4. Recon planes will photograph Flers and Beugnatre airfield
5. Bombers have to destroy the the depot at Lechelle

Central-
1. Bombers will destroy the British Army camp

Historical Background: The Battle of Flers–Courcelette took place on 15 September 1916 as part of the Somme offensive and is most famous for the fact it was the first time tanks were deployed in a battle.

We've had some good furball dogfights running this mission in the past, particularly with the Central forces utilizing the powerful Rolands as fighter/bombers! It's a tighter area of operations than last week, and this time everyone knows the targets. Central forces won the day last time we ran this mission, although we tied for objectives, Central forces carried the day with points. Entente forces are looking to settle the score :)

So dust off the old flying kit, get a shot of courage from the mess and let's go flying!

Good luck and happy hunting S!
