Yea Wolf, that's kind of what I was driving at.


ps: Not sure if I'm going to be home in time to play later today. I'll try but it may be impossible.

I’m on it Mugue. I already have a mission like this. I actually created it for another Squad. It looks a lot like what we did yesterday. I will add some ‘bounce from high six ‘ slots :)

We have been flying Yak 1B 69 and probably I-16 Type 24. Quoting Repent on this one :???: As these are the available planes in the upcoming TAW campaign.

heres what the planeset for TAW usually is fighter wise, and as close to chronological order as i can remember, so try to have a good go in them all

i16
p40
lagg
mig 3
yak 1
p39
all early set (these need practice as the later aircraft bring the disadvantage much closer, and in some cases give us the advantage.

yak 1b
spitfire vb
la5
yak 7
la5fn

Okay, sadly that's pretty much put me off, too many aircraft to learn, part of the reason I stopped flying, jack of all trades but master of none.

I agree on that one Blackie! I don't wanna practice in all planes. I probably chose two...maybe three, and if those aren't available..i'll skip that sortie.

Same as Wolf here, I prefer to stick to 2 at most. If I do not have one of those during the campaing, I will do some ground pounding with Il2s or Pe2s. We will need groud attack planes anyways :lol:

Yep, 2 maybe 3, one of which is ground attack, I like to get proficient rather than a wishy washy approach, look at the numbers and try and stick to them, for me its about staying alive and getting back to land. Maybe I am being unrealistic.

I don't mind having fun and not getting home, just respawning, but for a proper campaign I feel its important. But if you don't then I have no objection to respawning, just would like to try not to.

Was great fun yesterday imo.

I wish I could temp Blackie to ignore the frustration and keep trying. Three days ago I was frustrated with the Yak as well. Why would we even fly that damn plane. Tho it's starting to get to me now and it starts to become rewarding.

Nice mission..very useful Vander. Thanks for that.

Also can't get that quality scissor maneuver of Haash out of my head. Pretty cool how quickly you turned the tables there Haash..I am jealous
