Tactical Air War

Recommended Posts

Is the Flak heavier or comparable to RE+? I have quiet some flying time for next weekend, and might chip in if RE's campaign ends. 

 

Grt M

FLAK is heavier. Its not recommend to attack ground targets alone.

Can I make a suggestion / give my opinion on this campaign's changes from the view of a heavy bomber pilot.

 

Yes. It's need to be improved. The new depot is bigger but it's repaired to fast. Destroying one building in depot will be counted as 3-4 ground kills. 

 

 

 

 

 

If I got hit by enemy and Ruined my propeller when landing  it will count as Shot down by enemy  right?

 

I have some experience that I got hit by enemy at the first and ditch on the field(with out landing gear) or land perfectly on the airfield but engine stoped after that.  they all counts SHOT DOWN by enemy (both Scoring board in game and Web side 

once I got hit by some VVS 7.62 guns.(maybe got 2-3 holes on my wing)  I dont even notice that until I landed on our airfield but Ruined my propeller because of my error to Miscalculated the speed

It end up I was shot down by that guy

 

Then the last few days I Let some VVS black smoking planes escape and wait for the Kill counts

Sometimes I never got the Kill. because the pilot manage to land the plnes with out damege the propeller or back to the base before the engine quiets(That is totally acceptable)

But sometimes  I already got the kill on the Scoring board in game but nothing on the web side

its happend 4 times at least in 7 days

Last time I even asked the VVS player after I got the kill on the Scoring board in game and he told me he never made it back to the AF and crashed on a open field. But I got no kills on web when i check it after the game

This is a really annoying thing that  I hope can get a answer

Is it Simply Calculation error of the sever or some game mechanic? in some Cases it will no show on the web side? 

 

If you get damage and destroy your airplane during landing it's counted as SHOT DOWN and you lose this airplane.

If you are SHOT DOWN and then landed on the airfield (by gliding etc.) then it's counted as SHOT DOWN but you don't lose this airplane.

 

If you damage enemy airplane and end your sortie before enemy plane crash then you don't get AK, here is example: 

http://taw-server.de/pilot_sortie.php?id=26771&name=III./JG5_Georgelee 

 

I have added this problem to my "to-do" list so it should be fixed. 

 

I like your server it is fun and well done, a lot of though and work have been done for sure.

 

May I suggest in the next campaign to replace the name ditching for crash land or simply crash in the stats.  

 

Ditch or ditching only happen when you crash on water not on land ;)

ok :)

I really wish we could get everyone on a common Teamspeak for usage in this campaign.  I took a half a year break from IL-2 and TAW and numbers seem to have gone up a bit, but we're still relying on chat to have comms.  I've not seen more than 5 dudes at one time on the TAW TS, and the official has been a smattering of dudes doing different things it seems.  Even with the language barrier one dude can speak broken English usually at the least allowing some overall coordination.  This community would explode if we could get that "your part of the family" feel going on, I think TS is where it begins.

 

"We use our own TS is not a viable response when we're talking large scale Tactical Air War where coord. is key.

Its happened so many times and I juast dont kown what I did wrong

now It can explain why I cant get my AK 

I did landed to refuel before he crashed last time, mabye I did the same as well few times before

I gess I have to stay in air little longer until my opponents crash before you guys fix this problem :D

 

And somtimes I damaged a enemy first and my squad mate finished him later

It count as my kill in the In Game Scor Board but count as his kill on the web side after 

is this problem also will be fix?

 

another question: is it shooting pilot after he bailed out (shooting parachute) Irregularities?

I got shot once by some LG guy before,

I gess because I dameged him and Was shot down after not by him but anther VVS player on his side, he didnt got the kill

mebye he was pissed off by that and shot me for two pass but didnt hit my pilot

 

I kown that there is no Annotations in the RULES on the web side to against this

But Is this behavior allowed?(shooting parachute)

And if I got killed in parachute its also counted me WAS KILLED or not?

Vulching and shooting parachutes is allowed. If someone shoote your chute and you will hit ground then youll be dead.

So... The Pandora box has been opened?

For victory!

If you only damage an airplane you don't know if he landed or crashed. In game there are logs and table score which shows you what happened next but in real life you wouldn't get a confirmed shot down, I guess.

 

Game score board sometimes shows something different that is in the log files. TAW uses log files. Very often there is no information about who shot down enemy plane at all. Developers should fix it.

 

Shooting at parachute is not forbidden but we don't encourage to do it. It's up to pilot decision.

Small update:

 

  • Every destroyed building in the depot gives 3 ground kills (not 1 as before)
  • Depot is repaired only by about 5% after 3 missions without damage (before about 15%). Now it should be easier to destroy it completely. If destroyed it's unavailable for the next 15 missions. Capturing city with enemy depot destroys it completely.
  • Tanks convoy after battle of enemy city damage defense position and airfield too now. To gets better effect you should damage this airfield by bombers. 
  • After capturing enemy city airfield is closed (repair status) for one mission now (there was bug and was closed for 2 missions)
  • New Truck Limit = 2000, if side exceeds this limit all supply convoys are reduced by half.
  • Cities can generate supply convoys less frequent now. 

 

 

So damaging and destroying objectives now should last much longer and have more impact. Supply convoys and trains are the easiest objectives to destroy. If you constantly destroy them in consecutive missions sooner or later an enemy city will be out of supply with weak defense and heavily damage airfield, easy to be captured.

Some highlights from TAW earlier this month including some bloopers.

 

Noting the discussion on flak, yes it's hard to avoid but not impossible when flying alone. You just need to come in very fast and stay low. Obviously, flying with others increases your chances of making it. If you make more than one pass you are asking for it - just like real life.

 

I always dive at the target leaving room to increase the angle of the dive. As soon as I see tracer coming up I bunt forward and let it go over the top. It takes the gunners a few seconds to adjust fire, and when they do, bunt forward again. If you get hit then RTB asap. Be disciplined. Fly in a squad if possible (The Nineteenth is always recruiting)

 

The below video shows this being done both successfully and unsuccessfully:

 

 

As the saying goes........... "One Pass... Haul Ass".........................

Regards,

If you are talking about mission #371 then it probably was internet connection issue. Server kicks in 1 minute if wrong plane is taken (there is info on chat why) . You was kicked after 6 and 11 min. so it wasn't the script.

 

@Kathon please check ur inbox

 

Cheers

@Kathon, I am thinking about historic and reality of this server, I believe this server is the most historic one, we love it very much, lol

 

But I am also thinking about the armaments belong to LW and VVS.

You see, I believe that there were not so many i16 and mig3 mounted 20mm ShVAK in the frontline, also the SC1000 of LW.

That won't be reality and historic if every VVS pilots ride a 20mm ShVAK mounted i16 or mig3 and dive from the sky.

I think we can aquaire these modification by ranks or after 3 or 6 combat mission, or can only use this modification at rear area, this would also be a prize for a pilot.

 

Of course I understand that you have to consider about the entertaning beyond the reality and historic, but I hope you can think about this idea.

 

BTW, our squadron will switch to VVS in season X, I think that it wont be an advantage for us if you made that change, but that would be more fun when in a historic and reality sky.

 

Hahaha

Please ban for unability to identify correctly my 110, continuing to fire at my 110 (although being adressed in the chat) and teamkilling me:

 

[i.NJG137]Herr_Pes

 

http://taw-server.de/pilot.php?name=[i.NJG137]Herr_Pes

 

I wrote him two times in the chat, but he damaged me so severely, that I crashed. It's going to be the most recent sortie in my log after map rotation in 30min.

Thanks

I would like to remind that you can register an account and then after login you can edit pilot's name using Pilot profile tab (top-right corner). So if you made an error in name or created many accounts then you can always fix it by yourself.

Woke up early this morning, went for a defensive patrol. almost 30 minutes it was quiet, but such a joy just to fly around in VR. I had a beautiful landing, in VR when I finish a sortie I like to park my bird if there is no particular rush to get straight back up.

 

So I am taxiing around the airfield to find a suitable parking spot, and some plonker had parked a car right across the taxi way, that I didn't see until it chewed my propeller. Ditched !! No CM+1 for me this morning :(

 

Was a beautiful flight though. I get why the cars are there, to give pilots spawning a sense of which direction to go, but any chance they could be replaced with something a bit bigger ? ;)

That's exactly why you've gotta S-turn while taxiing

one of the beauties in VR is I can just lean out of the cockpit, what happened here though is I'm looking off to the left for a spot to park, using my peripheral vision to keep me on the taxi path, and not paying attention to where I am going. 

 

To be fair though, what idiot parks a car on an airfield taxiway ? :)

o7 *snaps to attention and salutes smartly* You did ? well that's perfectly ok then, park wherever you like sir. Perhaps I could polish out that scratched paint, where my propeller made contact with your bonnet sir :)

 

Did take off from one airfield recently, not sure if it was this map, or the previous one where there were direction signs scattered here and there along the taxi strip. I thought they were quite effective. So is the car, I was just miffed that I had forgot all about it on landing, was feeling dead chuffed with myself for enjoying an uneventful defensive patrol, looking forward to parking up somewhere I considered to be suitable and then tripped up on the damn car lol.

Yes they are static in the mission but in the next one they advance without any opposition and our defense positions wasn't attack by blues.
