S~ All. Mission 8 Briefing is available for download in the PX.

 i don't think we've got a Mission leader assigned for this one yet..Who  wants gum?  ( yes gum in this instance is referring to mission command) If i don't hear from some one by tomorrow.. i'll pick some one.
 My preference is some one that hasn't had a chance to lead a campaign mission yet.. but we'll see who we get. 

 the Stalingrad scoreboard is usually updated shortly before the next mission in the campaign is to be flown..so you're seeing the delay  there Gonzo.. and everyone else..but i'll be the first to say that i am quite capable of making mistakes so don't be shy if you think i missed something.  thank you for your patience.. some of the scoring  i do isn't exactly laid out specifically in the post i made initially.. i didn't go into great detail about the odd  circumstance here and there.. but just to give you an idea of what counts.. getting back to base with your plane intact is best.. close to base is good.. ditching is better than bailing out (you can bail out after ditching or landing no penalty).  getting killed is bad... getting captured isn't as bad as getting killed.. If you do bail out.. it's considered successful only if you stay alive until your pilot run across the ground hits the dirt and then disappears.

"What the hell, let's see what happens"?  Me too.

~S~ Good day comrades.

The whole aim of today’s mission is to make sure that the supply train convoy departing the station at Gorkovsky delivers its much-needed cargo to our troops on the ground.

“B” flight will be flying IL-2’s. “B” flight's mission is pretty straightforward; you will be flying support for the (Supply Train Convoy). You will take off from Pitomik Airfield and fly due west at low altitude and attack enemy AA, artillery and tank formations along the train rout. These are your primary targets. Any other ground troops and material that you find along the way are secondary.

 “A” flight will be flying P-39's. I want “A” flight to stick with the IL-2's and provide top cover for them.

Once the IL-2's have cleared the rout of AA, artillery and tank formations, the P-39's will escort the IL-2's back to base.

After the IL-2's are safely back to base I want the P-39's to remain on station in reserve and fly CAP over Pitomik Airfield.

As for our fighters... Front line troops have reported a flight of enemy (Ju-87 stuka) dive-bombers with fighter escort crossing the lines at (Gulf-10 kp3) headed SE.

 “C” flight will be flying Yak-9's. Sense “C” flight will be lined up in first position I want them to fly intercept. “C” flight will fly balls out at an altitude of around (1000 to 2000M) (Flight leaders discretion) and at a heading of (240*) and make a B-line straight to (Noviy Rogachik) to intercept the reported incoming enemy aircraft. “C” flight will concentrate on the fighter escort, hopefully leaving their bombers unprotected for “D” flight to mop up.

 “D” flight will be flying Yak-9's as well. “D” flight will fly at a heading of (195*) to (India-9 kp3) and then head west along the train rout and at an altitude of around (1000 to 2000M) (Flight leaders discretion). This will provide a second layer of fighters in case the reported incoming enemy aircraft happen to slip by “C” flight's intercept undetected.

In the event that the enemy aircraft do happen to slip by “C” flight's intercept undetected, “D” flight will then attack the enemy fighters and “A & C” flights will be vectored to attack the enemy bombers.

Egress for all flights will be (090*) to Pitomik Airfield.


That is all comrades, Good luck!

S~ All. After a couple of false starts the past couple of weeks.. we're hoping to get the Stalingrad campaign rolling again tonight.   Tonight's mission will be mission 9..   if 'm not mistaken next sunday is 'the big game' .. so we'll probably skip a week again.. i'm almost thinking we could run Stalingrad on tuesday until we start the euro campaign.. which is getting quite close really..

BB, where abouts can I find the Mission #9 briefing? I've looked around the various download pages but cannot find it.

S~.  Sorry about the brief for mission 9 not being available.. i thought it was still there from when we flewit the first time... but i couldn't find it either..  i usually put them in the misc files folder that is available to registered members of the site... so the guys that are not AH that fly with us can get it if they would like.  the brief for mission 11 is there now.. you could go to the downloads link in the PX.. then scroll down just a bit and you should see the different folders that have uploaded files in them.  you can click on the text next to the folder icon to open that folder and view the available files in there. so to get to misison 11 brief you would click in the view downlaods, then scroll down to see misc file folder , then click there..orrrr use this link: http://www.aceshigh.ws/forum/index.php?action=tpmod;dl=item97   

 Mission 11 is scheduled for Feb. 10th.

~S~ all:

Mission Commander's plan for tonight's mission # 16 is available for download.  Go to "view downloads section;" look for "Stalingrad 16 MC."

NOTE:  I will have ATC up and running for the brief.  All hands participating are directed to download and install the ATC map that AH_Crash provided in his original mission brief (install using the file's original name in your "Stalingrad" ATC folder).
