Just looking at the times/speed you have there .. B-29s are the fastest of the heavy's.. keeping a slow speed of 300 kph will be hard to maintain..may need flaps in?? This may go faster than you intended..

Well , the Japanese AAA was the biggest threat to our bombgroup.
It was thick and nasty.
Only a few enemy fighters even approached our guys - but they put a beating on the group that preceded us to target.
The officer responsible for planning the route has been sacked , and we are assured that someone more experienced will be his replacement.
We were unable to take out the Kumamoto factory , and as a result we will be going back in.
The brass is being mum about when , but I'll keep you posted.

Next weeks mission will be the resupply of Bastogne , and the defense of Foy , on the northern outskirts of Bastogne.
Intel and maps will be distributed at a later date.

Next Monday's Mission : The Bastogne Perimeter

December 22 , 1944

The von Rundstedt Offensive , which will become known to history later as "The Battle of the Bulge" has been underway
for almost a week. The Krauts caught us with our pants down. They have captured St. Vith , Hosingen , Gouvy , Houffalize , Bertogne and Ourtheville. Bastogne is surrounded.

Bastogne is the key road and rail junction in the Ardennes. Our troops in Bastogne can only be supplied by air drop.

This is a 2 Team Red vs Blue Dogfight Mission.
Divide the sides evenly , as though for a FnF.

Red Aircraft Set
P47D-22 , P47D-27 , P38L , P51D5NT , C-47 , L-5 Sentinel

Blue Aircraft Set
Bf109K-4 , FW190F8 , Me410A , Bf110G-2 , Fi-156 Storch , FW189 Uhu

DROPBOX LINK FOR HISTORICAL SKINPACK :
https://www.dropbox.com/s/7mlc6moyqwogaut/Skins_Bastogne%20Perimeter.7z?dl=0

Unzip , and paste Skins folder into your HSFX/Paintschemes Folder
Allow to overwrite.
Use any skin with a "BP" prefix


***

***

Team Objectives , rather than individual ones are the order of the day.
Individual Scoring is TURNED OFF.

Recon and supply flights are vital to the Mission.

Recon flights for both sides are KEY.
Ground Unit padlock is off - so you must identify ground units by flying low and slow.

Red Team has 2 Objectives :
1) Resupply Bastogne by Air Supply Drop (C-47s).
    There are 4 Drop Zones around Bastogne.

***

***

    Each Drop Zone is indicated by a cross made of Red material , and campfires.

***

***
    By Mission end (75 minutes) the Allies must have made one successful supply drop
    on EACH ZONE. Success will be  indicated by on-screen message.
    Drops must be between 500m/1600ft and 800m/2600ft altitude to be successful.

2) Prevent the German Armour from reinforcing Foy (C-1-8) .
    If the German Armour reaches Foy in significant numbers , an on-screen message will indicate
    failure of this objective.

Recon Aircraft have Airstart Spawn Points near the battle area. You will have to have pilots volunteer to fly these in order to
correctly identify the ground targets. This is a difficult , dangerous and VITAL job.
Difficult because the ground forces for both sides are in the area (and ground padlock will be off).
Dangerous because both sides recognize the importance of these flights , and will attempt to shoot them down !

BLUE TEAM OBJECTIVE  is to prevent the success of both Red Objectives.
If Red Team meets both objectives , they win.
Red meets one objective , and has a higher team score at mission end they win.
If Red meets one objective , and has a lower team score at mission end , the game is a draw.
If Red meets neither objective , Blue wins.

NOTE :  There is a finite supply of airframes for both sides - if you run out , that's it.
            Change sides and play again.

Good Luck.

Just a thought about dogfight maps, its always good to include "None" in the Air Force list for both sides. Unlike COOPs which have a switch to turn markings on\off, dogfights don't have that. So if you have a custom skin, the None option allows you to dispense with the junky stock markings.

DW,

         I would do this if I had faith that the custom skins would follow the historical basis of the missions.
         When I build a mission based in an historical context , it really sets back my personal enjoyment and immersion
         when I see paint schemes and markings unsuited to the setting.

         For missions which are non-historical , I am open to whatever people want.

         Also , when I release a skinpack which is usually close to historical authenticity (Unless I can't find an appropriate
         representation) I have no problem if people want to add noseart , personal sqdn codes , kill markings etc.

         If it is the in-game national markings that bother you , I can release blank skins rather than generic skins with
         national markings and no codes - of course I would revert if incorrect nationalities started showing up.

Yeah, I really like historical skins too but ultimately people are gonna fly what they want to fly. No point in letting yourself get too hung up on it or you will be constantly disappointed. For someone like me, its because I have alot of appropriate historical skins that I'd like to see them without stock markings piled on top of the skins own markings.

For Monday 12 March

The calendar has just turned to 1947.
The fledgeling United Nations has been informed by Norwegian Intelligence that ultramodern military aircraft and
warships have been detected in the Arctic.
Inuit informants report that Nazis who escaped NWE at the end of the war have built a military enclave on the Island of Svalbard.
The UN has dispatched a multi-national Naval Task Force to investigate , and to eradicate the "Nazi Holdouts !"

***

***

This is a Red vs Blue Team Dogfight.
There is no individual scoring , instead each team has a couple of objectives (READ THE BRIEF AFTER YOU ARE GIVEN YOUR SIDE).
Cumulative Team scores come into play if neither team achieves their Team objectives.
The Airframe Count is finite , so each aircradft lost is one less on the inventory.
It is possible to run out , and this makes it important for the Nazis especially to CAP their homebases.

This Mission needs some more pilots than what we have been seeing for Mondays.
For this reason , I'd like to ask the guys at Joint Command to join in if no-one  has any objections.

This is obviously a what if , and is meant to be fun. The plane-set is oddball , and should present challenges to both sides.

The Allied (Red Team) Plane-set includes SeaFury's , and F9F Panthers plus others.
The Nazi Holdouts (Blue Team) Plane-set will be uncertain until Monday night.
Use your imagination.

For Monday March 19...

The Roncey Pocket
German Troops are trapped between Marigny and Roncey in Normandie.
The Roncey Pocket
July 28 , 1944

Following more than 50 days bottled up in the Norman bocage , Operation Cobra burst the crust of the German defense. Armored Columns of the US 2nd and 3rd Armored Divisions swept south and west from Carentan and St.Lo. Strong German Army , Fallschirmjaeger and SS elements were caught in the trap. They were determined to fight their way out. By this time the Allies were flooding the beachead with troops , equipment and supplies , and the first fighter and fighter-bomber squadrons of the RAF 2nd Tactical Air Force and the US 9th Tactical Air Force were now based on French soil.

This is a Team Dogfight Map - Individual Scores are Turned OFF!

Divide Teams in a Ratio of  3 : 2  Red : Blue  (as close as possible).
Airfields and parked aircraft are targets.
There is a finite number of aircraft for each side.
Select your Base and read your detailed brief.

Mid-day at the Oasis

Just another day in Libya , late in 1941.

The Long Range Desert Group has identified an Eyetie mixed infantry-armour-artillery force holding the small oasis town at
grid D-3-3. They also report an Afrika Korps Panzer/Panzergrenadier Group approaching from the NW to reinforce.

***

***

The Desert Air Force has been called in to take care of this little bundle of spaghetti.

A Mixed Tactical Wing out of H-4-4 will handle the situation.
Free French Blenheims will bomb the Oasis Town.
Some of the new Hurri IID Tankbusters will interdict the Gerry reinforcements ,
and Tomohawks will escort BOTH groups.
Bear in mind that these Hurris are equipped with 40mm ATGs and will be terribly vulnerable to interception.
