Tactical Air War

Recommended Posts

Can we get stats on our pilot that include specific Aircraft type kills? for example. "FW190 killed: 31"; That would be G sauce. 

                                                                                                                                                  "BF109 killed: 76". ect....

The one thing we can all agree on is that the 38mm shell, regardless of the platform - sucks!

38 mm shell? Are you confusing Flak 38, which has 20 mm shell, with Flak 36, which has 37 mm?

Yes this is the most realistic campaingn I ever flown. I really would like to see a lot of that campaign on this game. But I think to make this kind of campaign is just imposible becauase of the amount of object functions and mainly amount of players that the server can hold. Is just imposible to make a massive organiced  muti squad mission becuase the rest of the map would be just empty of defences.  I think for the momment the game has a lot of flaws and limitations itself. 

Just imagine 40 planes coordinated for a hight alt bomb run..   OOHH Wait. they just pass 10 km from you and you saw nothing becuase shit rendering distance.... 

Can this game Handel that type of campaign. .? 

My thoughts are if you want to fly TAW campaigns you register your squads and you get picked for what team To fly for By the server admins .

This is how it used tobe .

Just Can't have this 40 v 13 , it's embarrassing.

I stopped flying axis because I just could not get into this server . It ended up being a frustrating time trying to meet up with friends . 

So I went Red . At least I managed to get into server . 

I consider a flight sim to be for the adult community I'm sure most of us are man enough to expect the admins choice.

Do we have any web page with the total results for last campaigns?

 

Great to know the scores for the last 10 of them.

I have just put some info from  archive.org

 

You can check the history here: https://web.archive.org/web/*/http://taw.stg2.de/

 

It will be great if we have had the actual databases and have the whole history online , like ITAF have for the last 3!

I gave up the forums a while ago but I have to reply to this. That behavior of the Il16 was what you get with some Morons that want to ruin others fun and enjoyment .(that's how they get off)...Sad Lives Really !...…..Hvb, do you have "pilots" landing in Enemy Territory and "shooting" the AA ? on TAW ? Is TAW immune from Morons ?  I have just got back Online because I don't want Morons in my Fun time Flying(and All that goes with Online ). Do you Feel WOL is Inferior to YOUR HIGH standards ?...Morons like that Guy and Responses from people who think they are Elite, "Hardcore" doesn't encourage any Single Player to try MP..... If all you MP want to Attack another Server, your cutting GBs Mp throat. Soon there will ne None !

Alright, alright, alright already. Enough. The devs deleted this video off the video thread because of a tsunami of butthurt, so I'm taking it off youtube before said tsunami erupts over here and the TAW thread gets shut down as well. Apparently many people loves them some WoL. Great. I'm not one of them.

Salute All!

 

During previous online wars (IL-2 Forgotten Battles era) from time to time we had blue and red separate forums, so each side could coordinate missions etc.

We could give it a try during the next TAW round and if it would be useful!

 

I have set up this board:

 

http://www.e-335thgr.com/taw/

 

My thoughts are:

 

1. No open registration. Anyone who wishes to join must:

  • Register to the board http://www.e-335thgr.com/taw/
  • Send me a pm here, in the official forum with  the user name and the e-mail that he used to register
  • I will check it and give permissions to view and post

 

2. After each round we will delete everything (users and posts) and wait for the next round!

 

3. I think must be simple, only two topics.

 

 

We  can do the same for red site, but someone must administrate it. After I set it up, he must delete my account and administrate it.

 

I know that TAW runs too fast but we can give a try!

I will re-iterate, if the leaders in the community had backbone and banned him, forcing him to spend some more money to get alt accounts, one he'd either stop, or two, he'd go broke. He's ruined the taw experience for me, and its the best experience in IL-2.  BTW he was on my team last taw too.

Please, 

If you think a board to coordinate our efforts will be useful,  you are welcome to join during next round. 

 

In my opinion TAW is the best highlight for IL-2 Great Wars and subsequently for the whole IL-2 community. 

A lot of great servers out there but TAW is unique!

Is there a possibility to link the TAW account to this forum account? So it would be impossible for a red to connect on the blue forum for example. 

Problem is, you can register on both sides (which is a good thing). So...

Hi all!

Proposal for setting the weather on the server.

Flying on TAW, I think everyone paid attention to the fact that at least 95% of the time the weather on the maps is million by million. Frankly, there is a feeling that we are flying somewhere in Miami at least, and not in Russia. From the site Memory of the People (Central Archive of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation) collected the Operational Reports of the Air Force Headquarters Zapf in the area of Vyazma, which indicate the weather. Data brought to the table. September 1941, with the exception of 2 days, the weather data is completely available, October and December data are scattered, not all reports are still available.

Sample summary (the section with the weather highlighted by me):

00000047.thumb.jpg.43742354fb5eb82859216a3737e85160.jpg

The archive has two files - Russian and English versions. Files in the .odt format - OpenOffice.

If you look at the data, we will see that for the whole of September only one day was clear, and then, only in the evening, the other days were quite heavy clouds and frequent precipitations. I do not propose to simulate the weather on a server on the server according to the reports, but the number of clear days and with weak clouds should be markedly reduced. Especially on the Moscow map. On Stalingrad and Kuban I will try to find data separately about.

 

I apologize for my English, I use a translator.

I ask because my knowledge about military operations under bad ( ww2 air ) weather are none.  

 

 

From weather reports we can see along one month only 2 days was clear...   Ok. 

 

What kind of air operations are made on bad weather? operations are the same? If i compare a clear month vs a badly month , in both periods have same missions?

 

I ask , because my  sensations is just the opposite... i doubt under some weather conditions ( i found to many times playing Taw ) on real life pilots do nothing... except crash on runway... but i repeat i dont know ...  

 

The question is, ok to try recreate historical weather if we recreate historical missions under this bad weather... we do this?  really i doubt.  Some times i feel , the bad weather is more a cheat for players than a simulation...

Unfortunately, I did not have enough time to write out the full number of sorties of aviation. But the days when the report reads "because of the bad weather conditions the combat operations did not lead," I noted in the column. There are also quite a few such days — on average, for a month, 2-3 days.
Again, I do not propose to simulate the historical weather, I am in favor of reducing the number of days when the weather is absolutely cloudless. Therefore, the clear sky in Russia in the autumn and winter is a rather rare phenomenon.
In addition, an increase in cloudiness may cause players to descend from space to work on ground targets.
As for the bombers, I think that with certain clouds, it will be easier for them to hide in the clouds from the fighters.
I do not propose to simulate bad weather conditions, I propose to increase the amount of cloudiness and cloudy days.

Here, for example, I translated one of the reports, combat work was carried out even in severe weather conditions.

00000115.thumb.jpg.3208b00d6c7d64e4ca628644163a4307.jpg

 

OPERATIONAL REPORT OF THE STAFF OF THE AIR FORCE OF THE WESTERN FRONT By 11:00 PM 10/01/1941

First: On the entire front, the enemy did not show activity. Continuing to lead the strengthening of the occupied lines. The air force of the enemy during the day of 10/01/41 conducted reconnaissance activities and bombarded railway sections.

Second: our troops on the right wing of the front were attacking. In the center and on the left wing they continued to consolidate on the occupied lines and conduct intensive reconnaissance of the enemy.

Third: On the night of September 30 to October 01, the air force of the front conducted limited combat operations due to adverse weather conditions. Bombardment of the barracks on the western and southwestern outskirts of Smolensk and the accumulation of enemy troops on the road west of Dukhovshchina.
9 airplanes were launched for bombing.
Bombs dropped: 14 FAB-100, 25 FAB-50, 10 ZAB-50, 24 AO-25, 140 AF-2 with the COP.
Scattered 65.000 flyers
During the day, on 01.10, the enemy forces accumulated bombardment, covered the loading and unloading of troops and military transportation by rail, air hubs and front command posts.
153 sorties were made, of which 27 were for bombardment, 12 for assault operations, 18 for reconnaissance, 87 for cover, 9 for escort.
Bombers produced 35 sorties, fighter aircraft - 118 sorties.
Bombs dropped 4 FAB-100, 24 FAB-50, 48 AO-25, 23 RS.
1550 ShVAK shells, 14,200 ShKAS cartridges, 2,100 BS ammunition were launched.
Weather in the area of hostilities: at night, overcast with a height of 200 meters, fogs, poor visibility; during the day, cloudiness is continuous with a height of 150-600 meters, visibility is 2-6 km, in some places it is drizzling.


And so on. This summary contains three pages. That is, the combat work was carried out in different weather conditions.

I'm talking about the fact that the sky is too clear most of the time on the maps. Well, on the one hand, this is far from realistic, but on the other hand, orbital wars are ongoing. Again, this is just a suggestion. Somehow absolutely absolutely cloudless sky looks completely unnatural.

lock bombs fighters. Exterminators must do their job. Their attackers. That's when the game will be interesting.

I agree with the idea of a bit more bad weather missions. 

 

Quick example: 

40% of missions with good weather (no clouds or few)

40% of missions with various cloud layers (4/8 to 7/8, 1 or 2 clouds layers, etc), with various altitudes (from 500 to 2000m)

20% of mission with bad weather (overcast cloud layer), with various ceiling, just like we have now sometimes.

Did you check the number of players for these missions? The server is always empty (<60% at prime time) for that weather. I see no reason to set the rain more than ONCE in 48 hours. We want to play and enjoy, right? Do you know any person who likes this weather in TAW? If you are, than you are a lucky person.

Norz, i already answered you in the Russian forum - no one is talking about rain. A proposal to increase the number of cloudy days, and increase the density of cloudiness. Precipitation and clouds are completely different weather settings.
Well, for the sake of justice: those 60% of the players you are talking about are, after all, blue side players, aren't they? ;)

Not at all. As I said before, no one (at least in our group,  we play both sides) want to play in bad weather. Yes, it is a great experience.. but there are a lot of things in your life where you can get more pain than in this mission. So, if you like pain...why should you lose 2 hours exactly in TAW?

Кому - война, кому - мать родна) It is about pain)
Some players have a very selective approach, right? We do not want to play in bad weather! OK. Do the Reds want to play without ShVAK on I-16? Or with locked VYa? Historically? So if we are for history - this is the historical weather. What? 60% will not play? My God.
No one asks for constant rain in missions. On the I-16, by the way, flying in the rain is still a pain. But to remove the absolutely clear sky is necessary. And for this proposal there is a serious rationale: weather reports. No need to make it so bad as in the reports. But the number of days with dense clouds (without precipitation) should be increased, IMHO.
By the way, as for precipitation - the snowfall is quite good.

Just set your settings to Balanced, it will be totally OK.

 

I will skip all missions with the rain or snowfall (or almost all of them).
