Second episode of the Operation Uranus series for BoS; a multiplayer session on the Syndicate Europe server.

 

Stalingrad

November 1942

 

The german Sixth Army is now surrounded and on the brink of destruction. The Luftwaffe is tasked with creating an air bridge over Stalingrad to resupply their trapped forces while reinforcements are on the way to break the encirclement.   

 

After the success of the bombing raid on Kamyshin (see last episode: "The Raid on Kamyshin"), the german pocket of resistance at Pitomnik finds itself in dire need of fuel, men and aircraft. With the air bridge momentarily disrupted, russian Voyenno-Vozdushnye Sily (VVS) Command sends Requiem, King Hrothgar on a critical mission. 

 

They must hit the german fighter force at Pitomnik airfieild and hold off the battle-hardened veteran Luftwaffe pilots. However, due to a shortage of supplies, Yak fighters are unavailable. Therefore, we hop into old, obsolete LaGG-3 fighters. As the canopy closes and the Klimov roars, we start having this uneasy feeling of flying a wooden coffin. Will the LaGG-3s be successful or will they meet a gruesome end? What about the famous 109 aces like the legendary Mr. X? Who will live? Who will die? 

 

Stay tuned!

A lot of fun to watch. Those poor Huns at Pitovnick must have been gnashing their teeth. And congrats on getting Mr_X! You can retire now - nothing more to prove.

I noticed the other day online that there are two MK.Mr.X guys :biggrin: They were on the same server at the same time... :wacko:

The famous one doesn't have space after first dot in his nick and the other one has. Sadly the one you shot down is the other one. Nice video nevertheless. Glad to see people enjoying flight sims!

Cheers!

Now THAT is outrageously funny.  :biggrin:

 

Reminds me of this scene in the movie Troy where Patroclus puts on Achilles' armor and gets killed by Hector.
