  1. It is the 24th July 1940. Fly with Adolf Galland and his JG26 pilots on their first 'big operational' mission over England, escorting Dornier bombers on there way to bomb a Convoy forming up in the river Medway, off the Thames Estuary. Mission Build Notes: I am resurrecting some my original COD Campaigns and testing various single missions in the latest update, which seems to be working very well. This is Mission 4 of a 30 Mission Historic Campaign which now includes the Bf109F. Install Notes: 1. In your documents folder, open '1C Soft Club' folder, then open file 'il-2 Sturmovik Cli

  3. ‘The Fated Sky’ Spitfire XIV Mission 2 You can’t get enough of the Spitfire XIV – Follow Johnnie Johnson’s Wing flying their Spitfire XIV’s as they fight their way deeper into Germany. This early morning mission takes you on an air patrol of the Schwarmstedt area where the British 2nd Army is advancing relentlessly against German ground forces. Oblt. Hans Dortenmann’s JG26 Focke-Wulf’s are reported very active in the battle area. Good Luck. DFLion DF_Wing_Leader_The_Fated_Sky_SpitfireXIV_Mission2.zip
  4. Fly the ultimate WWII Spitfire MkXIV protecting the Weser River Allied Bridgehead. Mission Notes: I first constructed this mission using Spitfire IX's - you can now compare the difference in the two Spit's. I had to air-start half the Squadron because the powerful Griffon engine Spitfire XIV's were 'ground-looping' when taxying to the runway. The Spitfire XIV is an exciting plane to fly and I wish to thank Jason and Han for deciding to include this aircraft in the game and the design teams for doing an excellent job creating the aircraft. The Spitfire IX mission has b
  5. How are you Lemsip, I just watched all your 'Going Solo' videos. I haven't read Roald Dahl's book 'Going Solo' and I didn't realize where he served during WWII. I have a very close family connection with the North Africa, Greece, Crete campaign and I will privately tell you the amazing story one day of my relation. Keep up the good work you are doing, bringing alive what really happened to real people during various aerial actions in WWII - IL2 Sturmovik 'Great Battles' is the best platform to achieve this, and it is getting better all the time.

  6. How are you Sybreed, Flying all the Focke-Wulfs in the game require a fair bit of practice. You must apply your flaps to position 1 and when you line up, close your cockpit canopy and pull the stick right back to lock the tailwheel, then apply the throttle firmly up the throttle gate (not too abruptly to the end of the throttle gate) and you will quickly gain speed, applying the rudder when necessary to keep straight. The aircraft will start lifting its tail and as this happens you move the stick gently forward, watching for your takeoff airspeed. On takeoff you increase the throttle, ra
  7. Thanks taffy2jeffmorgan glad you are enjoying the mission. The Fockes have a height advantage so you have to anticipate the ‘bounce’. I’m really looking forward to the Spit 14 - looks very good in the first pics - I’m sure they will make a difference in the remake. The JG26 pilots respected their capabilities with the extra power from the RR Griffon engines. DFLion
  8. ‘Wing Leader – The Fated Sky’ I recently made this mission with the very high hopes that we would be able to fly the Spitfire 14’s in the mission. I saw Jason’s last update where he said that the Spitfire 14 was being ‘beta tested’ and I was hoping for an Easter release of the aircraft. Anyway we have to be patient – a lot of good thing’s going on with the development teams. I have now posted the Mission using the Spitfire 9’s and when the 14 arrives I will remake the mission with them, you will be able to compare the 2 aircraft which should be interesting.

  9. "Green Hearts - first in combat with the Dora 9" I have created quite a few historically accurate missions with the D9's using the excellent historical accounts from the book "Green Hearts - first in combat with the Dora 9" by Axel Urbanke. He has faithfully collected the day to day exploits of III./JG54 and JG26 from the 15th August 1944 through to July 1945. In this book there is a wealth of historical information from the German side and many accounts from the Allied side in a particular air battle on the same day. Putting all this information together you get a very accurate ac
  10. A few pics from my old 60 mission campaign 'Zero-sen' in 46. I still have 46 , fully up to date, and refer to my old missions while making my new missions. These pics should bring back some memories. DFLion
  11. Hi 9./JG52Gruber, Unfortunately I could not open your link. There are a few issues with the B25's dropping bombs immediately over their target, although you say to watch the a/c of Fritz Schulz, I presume that is the German translation of the B25 pilot? Regards, DFLion
  12. Hi jussitska and jeanba, Sorry to hear you are having trouble loading the mission. The mission was produced on the latest upgrade to the game, this could be your problem. I have tested it many times on my set-up and working ok. You place the 'DF_Sturmstaffel_01' file in the games mission file and when you open it up in the game make sure you have the mission introduction before you press start. Anyway let me know how you are going? DFLion
  13. Well done JG7_X-man, I have just flown both missions and they are excellent. This was a very important time in the history of the WWII European Western air campaign's aerial warfare and you have captured the moment in history very well. Sadly a lot of lessons were found out by both sides during this time. I enjoyed flying the FW190A-8's - they are a flying gun, shooting down six aircraft and carefully avoiding the Mustangs? On the other hand the Mustangs are a joy to fly and I claimed 2 Fockes. The USAF Mustang was to prove to be the 'nemesis' for the FW190A-8 as the war grinded on t
  14. Thanks for your feedback -DED-Rapidus, my mission seems to be going well. DFLion
  15. Hi -DED_Rapidus, I have just solved the problem of the P38's not protecting the B25's - I didn't 'object' them onto the escort symbol - all working well now? I have noticed the AI A6's are still missing their targets - how are you going with that? I have just officially posted the mission, so hope everybody likes it. Thanks again. DFLion
