Tactical Air War

Recommended Posts

actually there is no need, just land and shut down. base you take off from needs to be less than 40% damage, base you land at needs to be more than 0 % damaged, and there is now a maximum amount an airfield can be repaired between missions. Its all explained in the manual on the TAW website. 

I thought you could stock up an airfield now, I'm probably wrong but I heard or read (can't remember) that you can land at an undamaged airfield and stock up its resupply by x amount. Is this not the case?

I do like the cold start too. 

Gives a bit of time to preset bomb sight, refine flight plan, and make sure the plane is in good order for take off. And prevent people slamming full throttle WoL style. 

For what we get, 3 min warmup isn't much, especially with the crappy oil they used back in the days.

 

As others said (and if this hasn't been done yet), increase a bit the idle timeout for Pe2 pilots (I guess it will also be useful for LW when winter will be there) and it will be perfect.

Did I say that 50 vs 17 is optimal ? No.

Did I say that fight 17 against 50 is easy ? No, I've ony said that flying on outnumbered side is easier to find an enemy figters/bombers.

All the trick is to stay alive and shoot down some. That depends only on Your skill and willing to fight. You can't earn kills/ground targets leaving the server cuz Yoy're outnumbered.

And I do not call anyone here stupid or noobs cuz he didn't agree with me or he didn't know how to win a map  ;)

 

Ramm.

 

No, you are right. You said it was simple. My bad. I'll try in future to tailor my arguments to your special level of pedanticness. And now, to your point, it isn't as easy, or simple as that. Not when the bulk of enemy fighters are hands down faster than anything you can get your hands on outside of a bullet. It isn't my willingness to fight that determines getting a kill, it is yours. If you don't want to fight you can run away, and a lot of German players will run away, rather than getting into a fight they might lose and call it 'tactics'. That is of course rather aside from this particular point when there are 4 or 5 109's in the air for every Mig, and that is being generous. I might be able to dive in on a 5 man formation and come out of it with a kill on the other side of the fight. No way it can be done every time. It can't be done the majority of times. But that is what you advise. Of course you only advise that from a secure position with lots of back up - so brave of you.

 

But now to my real point. If 50 vs 17 isn't optimal, or even good, why do you ensure that it goes on and then tell us that it isn't your problem? You are part of the cause, doesn't that make you, in part, responsible? Doesn't that make it your problem? That is a general line of questioning for anyone, so don't feel singled out. I would have thought that fair play wasn't too much to ask for, but then I may have just forgot the crowd I was talking to.

Yeah, I've become a broken record on this topic all over the forum; for my own sanity I think I'll give it a rest.

I've been preaching this till I was blue in the face. No body wants to accept responsibility. All the care about is flying a 109 and bouncing people either on landing, at 7k, or on the climb out.

 

I might just have TWB and everyone else I can find to all join LW for TAW.

 

What's the sense in flying red if TAW is just going to turn into a PvE mud moving marathon?

Hehe, that idea is also not new. ^^ Was actually talked about in the RED team two campaings ago IIRC. Would have it's positive side, too. Here we are hyped for that shiny new COOP mode the devs are working on and it turns out we could have had that all along!

In Bf 109s you don't have to warmup, you can take off with continuous power. So nothing has changed there. Same with P40 and I16.

 

LaGG, Yak and La5 I didn't test yet.

Now if the admins could manage missions on the fly and put back in 61-K.. One can but dream ;)

More of these 61-Ks at least for Russian airfields..?

 

 

Me and a tovorish couldn't even climb beyond 1.5km today. Swarmed by vulching LWs, and bombed into oblivion on the ground.

Teams are crazy, hope this evens out soon, and I know I’ll be flying Red before this campaign ends if it doesn’t. But your idea to bring 61K back to numbers before, without any other adjustments, is not the answer. Last campaigns Red had things on ‘easy mode’ in terms of AA (I know this will trigger a few, but it’s true). Now VVS gets a taste what it’s like not to have the protection of crazy 37mm gunners providing ceiling of protective steel. I can’t even begin to count the numbers of times I was vulched, just in the last campaign! Why AA calibers were not just balanced for both sides rather than removing a large number of 61K, I wouldn’t know, probably a time constraint thing. But, hope you see the irony of wanting it to return when Blue never had anything similar to get protection from in the first place!

Apparently attacking airfields with fighters carrying bombs is frowned upon. I did 2 sorties just now with a P-40 and killed 4 fighters there and some hangars and some pilots are upset. Is there a rule against such behavior? Am I supposed to attack AF with only bombers in order for it to be ok?

 

Just want to make things clear ...

Naw, just do you and enjoy the tears.

 

I'm registered both times now. I'm flying short side to make it fun.

I'm just going to use fighters and fighter bombers red side unless my boss says we are full convery Red. Vulching in a P40 slung with a 250 will be funny as ffffffffff.

 

 

ADMIN REQUEST

 

I have made three accounts. Can you please delete them all so I can set my name properly and only have two accounts. I do not want to get accused of cheating or being dishonest. I don't mind having my stats reset. It's early and I have a feeling I'm going to be flying a lot of RED. If so I need to have my proper tags on 7./JG26_ even if I'm red side. I've been with the boys a long time and I want my tags shown with pride even if I'm in a Yak.

 

Thanks for the efforts. I know it's a lot of work and it can be thankless. Many a Cliffs campaign has been destroyed by caving into critics and ruining your vision.

 

Good luck.

 

I believe you need to work out a sign up sheet for squadrons before campaign with consideration for time zones in place. A major stack should not be allowed and if some people refuse to swap sides you should ignore the screeching when a side is full. Balance in numbers above all else. ACG has been around for over 5 years because we have a dictator and it's his way or the highway. He will tell you that in your induction interview. Frickin works a treat.

I either get kicked, have trouble joining, or the server is full at times when I could play (ie kids hogging internet).

 

Sorry I have not been more involved than that. I would have liked to. :salute:

It appears Piciu just experienced the Quality of German AI Gunners. We sat Dead Six for Minutes on his 110 and he didn't hit a single time and was shot down. 

And that was a full Minute between Custards first and last hit, and the Chase lasted a lot longer, without a single hit by the 110.

You need to fly a mission that involved getting an air or ground kill then landing safely at an active airbase.  Or land safely after flying for at least 15 minutes.

Correct. Fly bomber/attacker or He-111 transport (empty with full fuel) plane to resupply airfields in need. All of this is on the main website you can see which AFs are damaged.
