Tactical Air War

Recommended Posts

This edition is even worse than the last, not that last. No understand, because it leaves the Stuka as Fighter.. and is the only fighter Bf 109 Emil.. 

 

Luftwaffe used right now and Bf 109 F

Sorry to bother but same for us. Stats page now displays "script error" instead of "not valid plane". Deaths are counted in overall stats but hte results not.

I think this edition looks very promising. It's different from what we got and it takes more efforts to get the best results from these planes. 

 

Fly with what you have and soon you'll be back to the Friedrich. And if you don't like it you can always go to another server  :salute:

Just got Battle of Stalingrad and am catching up on flying since my IL2 '46 days. Do I need to own Battle of Moscow to play on this server? :) Thanks for any answer.

Generally you don't need it. But for the first map you are bound to the he111 and the stuka. However in the next maps there will be more stuff to fly for you.

Ah, I see. So I'd need to register as Axis? I think I might wait until the next campaign to fly as USSR!

no need to wait for next campaign, once this map is over a new one with later planes will start

Hellos Dev.

Yesterday in 11 missions the log of my pilot a note appears "script error" and statistics don't count my kills, also I ditch many times on the AF that I took off(brake my i16 wheels), this count as a mission?

Blue players, we need to collectively make better decisions. As of this post, we're already at double the losses of pilots than the reds. Source:

While I'm not the best pilot in the world, maybe I can provide some assistance to helping you make better decisions.

  •  Running is extremely viable tactic; don't waste away your life just because it's a virtual one. Unlike other games, you can't just enter the fray of 15 planes, and hope to come away unscathed.Try to think like a real pilot would. "Do I have support? Can I get away? Is the enemy unaware that I'm there? Do I have numerical superiority? Why should I enter this furball? Will it be beneficial to my team at this moment... long term?"

 

Amazing Sketch, 

Good reading about all things, fly like in a real life is the secret, trying to save your life.

Salute

Sorties "script error" weren't counted properly due to bug. Unfortunately they will not be "recounted".

Hello guys, I need help of an admin. For some reason I get kicked all the time from the server when I want to enter an aircraft.

I have not attempted to fly on the other side, nor do I have a second account. I fly on the german side.

After I registered on TAW site yesterday, I immediatlely changed my name, I changed it on the il2 website, too and I was able to fly without any problems yesterday.

For some reason the server kicks me today everytime I try to join an aircraft and I don't know why.

My name is correctly written, no spelling issue. (squadtag included)
I am completly out of ideas what the problem might be.

I'm thankfull for any help.

At least luftwaffe can use the he111 or stuka if they dont have the BOM.

Most of the E69 will wait for the next maps to fly red

I really do not understand this resistance to put 1 LAGG in the first map.
 
A resistance to maintain a "realism" that no one benefits.
 
It would spoil the TAW do so by players of the BoS?

Hi admins.

 

Last night i fly my first round on TAW  .. i lost 2  planes on  2 sorties,  Bad decisions  :)

 

I supose my plane number be:  2/4

 

next mission dont have better results... i do 8 missions

 

2 diched on ground

1 diched on base

1 on ground  ( no take off )

1 bail out

----------  after that missions , my status on report its NO VALID PLANE and results dont count, i think its logical i waste all my planes, but when i select plane on base no recibed alert.

my next sorties was :

 

1 diched

1 landed ( 1 kill no count )

1 on fly

 

Last 3 missions have on report " NO valid Plane "

 

I think all its ok right now . no?

 

Map ends and start another mission. I think on every mission pilot recibed 2 planes , im wrong?? for me from start i no have any I-16. I have 3 diched on ground but no planes avaliable. Its ok? Maybe i suffer some penalization for use Not Valid Planes?

 

thx

I forgot to write that if you have planes QTY<0 than after mission airplane will be replenished only by 1. Please check your hangar after mission.

In my opinion we need more targets with less AAA or at least less skilled AAA. It's too hard if you are alone or in 2 plane only even to damage a vehicle column: flak hit you every time flying at 450Km/h more than 2 kms far away! And actually targets are too close and the map seems too empty.

Last thing: russians need the mig3. It' impossible to intercept anything over 3K with the I16 and is terrible even to cover a pe-2 with that little bird! Is too slow! Can't cover their own bombers for long mission due to 200liters I-16's fuel tank! Add the mig3 with limited number and as an elite plane if you can!

You know, the problem is that we want to have server that needs cooperation. The point is that single aircraft shouldn't be able to change the tides of war.

And what about covering a pe-2? Anyway you are not the average player! You are superior but not everybody's like you!

Hello,

Like many others, I really appreciate TAW and what you and your team are doing. Keep it up!!
I have 2 suggestions, which i came to understand I have to post here

1) is there any way to count kill assists?
2) remove the "aah, I'm wounded radio message". If you aren't showing kill messages etc, why does the "I'm wounded" message appear?

Agree that Rambo does fine fighting 109s even with a lawn mower but keep in mind that if you cannot follow the Pe-2 there's other types of escort. Should you need air cover ask for it in the allied chat and i'm sure you'll get some little friends.

THIS.  You guys are doing great, Wicher!  Thanks so much to you, Kathon & all other =LG= who're helping out!

 

Undefended or poorly defended ground targets on other servers (and offline) have spoiled most of us to some degree.  Most "key positions" would naturally have strong AAA defenses, making them tough nuts to crack.  That's where tactics & planning should become vital.  There are techniques for hitting AAA in sims like this one, but none of those [that I know of] are fail-safe either.  You might have to bring in some level bomber strikes to take it down a notch before you can kill the rest at low alt, and even then they'll probably draw some blood in the process.

 

Part of the beauty and draw of sims like this one is the challenge of facing problems like this one, and working (with others ideally) to come up with solutions!  Those have to be based on the resources at hand - which change frequently - and the opposition, to name a couple of factors.  Be willing to take on the challenge!  The harder it is, the sweeter your successes will be.

 

Same general idea for our side in using the I-16 to cover Peshkas:  sure it can't keep up.  So how do you deal with that?  Are there solutions?  YES.  It just takes some thought & planning.  ;)

Do u know that those ideas are difficult to apply to everyone and things starting to become very complicated thinking this way? Anyway, I find this AAA unrealistic and they are killing this server into my squad's opinion.

Tried doing some ground attack today with my friend, was told we had air support.. Got shredded by I-16:s 20 seconds after entering the mission area every time. We need the fighters closer, the I-16 are attracted to us Stukas like flies are to cow dung.

I bet the real pilots during the war complained about their planes, lack of support, lack of fuel, wanting the newer aircraft, AAA, the weather, etc., etc. just like here in the forums.

 

I feel like I'm actually in a barracks at an airfield.

 

Keep up the good work Kathlon, et al.!

Yeah it's really worth it.

Actually I never realized BOM is so fun before this campaign - Flying I16 as your primary fighter. Waiting for the Migs and P40s.

Surealy BOM planes does not receive as much love as they should on other BOS/BOM servers because they are inferior.

 

I like how the Axis team underestimated I16 at first, flying more loose than usual. After few days they're tight again with more restraint and energy-conservative flying.

I-16 has no equal on this card!  :biggrin:

Blue side lose all aircraft!  :biggrin:

TWB loses all aircraft and leave the server. So it was today.

I wanted to answer it -  "Time to shoot down the crowds TWB" :lol:

ad1) not at the moment, maybe in the future. 

ad2) I don't know how to remove it from server side. Maybe you may disable it in yours settings.

I must admit that i16's are tough little motherfuckers. I wonder if the 20mm of the 109's overpen the russian wood. Sometimes they are hard to shoot down like the good ol' IL2. :-)

 

Does someone know if the damage model is modeled to take into account overpenetration?

 

I think the most are having a great time on the server!

 

See you in the skies! o7

Me waiting for the next map to play without BoM

 

I don't know what your situation is so I won't just say buy BOM but I will say that you cannot expect servers to always have a plane for you to fly because you don't have one of the products.
