Tactical Air War

Recommended Posts

 

 

 

 

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:

Today not. Tomorrow... :dry:

 

put your regular see us stuka, as a fighter?

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.

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?

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.

The way I remember it, even with us being outnumbered almost 2:1, you lost a pretty big streak last night.

 

You should stick to the Russian forums for filling your attention needs.  I retract my salute.

Incorrect, sir, the IL-2 1941 is easily as good.

 

I just wanted to give you props though, Mr. Hex... no single rage-quit has made me laugh as hard as when you Alt-F4'd in your chute and ruined your own kill streak.

 

That being said, I dunno if you went and got a warm glass of milk or a juice box or something, but when you came back a few minutes later, you were on FIRE... well, I guess I should say everyone else was on fire... I've never seen an I-16 instantly set that many planes on fire in rapid succession before, it was truly something to behold.  You must have been REALLY mad.

Just my opinion but I enjoyed the resupply "game" alot more in the last mission.  It seems way too easy to always have a plane to fly.  It's not even a thought that crosses my mind now.  It was fun worrying about how many planes I had in the last mission.  It's just taken a little of the fun out of it.  The enemy always has plenty of planes too.  You know.

I agree, even though I didn't partake last time. To have limited resources makes you much more cautions!

I also agree. The ease of re-supply for fighters leads to me being less careful. On the other hand it would be interesting if the German re-supply rate were more restrictive to simulate the Russians throwing every piece of equipment they have at the Germans in desperation and the Germans being more diciplined and experienced with longer supply lines would have to play it more cautious. The massive German pilot losses are kind of shocking. Is there any way to get a breakdown of what types of planes are accounting for losses? I would love to know how many fighters versus bombers have been lost for both sides.

So If I'm reading this correctly, on the next map - players will get two MiG-3s or the BF109F2s and one P-40/MC202 (depending on side) initially, and if they lose those planes they have to perform three combat missions to get another. However, they still have three I-16/E7s and will get +1 each mission roll over. Is that correct?

Agree, always getting 2 fighters for free each rotation, puts far less value on the aircraft, and you can see the results of that in the German planes and pilot losses.

They are "weaker" planes but unlimited supply without flying CM is not that good imho. But that was first map, now you have to do CM to earn better planes - it could change behavior and gameplay. Lets see how it will be now.

His innovations, you have significantly reduced access to your server pilots. Congratulations!

What problems? Map#1: blue BoS - Ju-87 and He-111... red BoS -  nothing.

Sorry, I was inattentive....  Map#2: blue BoS - only Ju-87... red BoS -  LaGG and Pe-2. It's a shame

You need to win this company faster and move on to the Map#3

Well, I bet that starting servers of BF4 reduced access to those servers for owners of BF3. Just buy the game, or wait for map to change.

 

Please don't listen to BOS-only community. Mixing BOS and BOM planes is nothing more but chopping the BOM content more or less.

Blue will always lose more pilots and unless a masochistic squad is REALLY pushing the horribad Ju-87 front, will lose tanks at an astounding rate as well.  The Ju-87 is a D+ plane, the IL-2 1941 is an A- plane.  When it comes to killing tanks, the Stuka is a D-, the 1941 is an A.  You can carry bombs, rockets, and a deep loadout of 23mm AP ammo that works on everything in the game in a plane that is a fantastic fighter.

 

The 109-E7/I-16 match-up was a real eye opener for me, once again, reading all the hype and history books I had been led to believe that the I-16 was obsolete, outclassed, and annihilated by the 109E in 1941 that was supposedly so much faster... clearly not the case.

 

Bottom line is that we can't do anything about the Dudebros who want to hemorrhage planes and pilots wantonly, apparently Luftwaffe rides are just more attractive to those sorts.  We can't affect the bail-out/capture rate, nor are we going to see an effective ground attack aircraft anytime soon, certainly not one that can clean up a line of tanks with relative ease.

 

If we're going to turn this around, we've got to see a lot more double-duty 109s... take a bomb to target, then roll back and defend the forward-most tanks.  The only real chance Blue has is by capturing fields, and due to the extreme attrition rate we have a relatively limited amount of time to achieve that goal.  

 

Strike defense points, defend our tanks, and bring some friends.

You're absolutely right 80hd, the Stuka is really bad unless we have air superiority. When we can utilize Bf-110 and FW 190 in our ground attack, perhaps we can increase our (estimated) 25% survival rate a bit..

Such victories?

 

 
Only the group can fly and shoot down.

I do, however, distinctly remember you being real quick with the Alt and F4 keys.

Evidence in the studio! 

I do not get out of the battle Alt+F4!
I respect the opponent with whom I conduct battle!
Remember this!

Blue will always lose more pilots

LOL :lol:

 

Bottom line is that we can't do anything about

I agree! When there is resistance, you can do nothing. :biggrin:

What makes you say this? Not trying to be argumentative, I just don't see how this is an absolute. 

 

Also, on the topic of Stukas vs Il-2, the main reason I see them dropping like flies is because Stuka pilots are trying to fly like they're in an Il-2. It's a dive bomber, yet I rarely see any Stukas diving. Instead they're putzing along at 500m waiting for an I-16 to come up and shoot them in the belly. This isn't a comment on if it's fair that the LW is stuck with a dive bomber as their basic attack plane. My point is just that I didn't see a single Stuka pilot actually use the aircraft "properly" during the first map.

 

Edit: I goofed my quote tag and can't bother to fix it, but that's an 80hd quote.

Are you sure those not divebombing aren't equipped with cannons?

Yeah. That would make sense at least. But I'm yet to see a Kanonenvogel, just putzing Stukas with a couple of bombs.

You have to also take into account things like VVS losing thousands of planes in the ground, plus a good chunk of the air force were biplanes like the I-15 and I-153. The I-16 we have is the best performing variant, the type 24, there were other variants like the type 18 or type 29 which had worse performance because either had less powerful engines, or had heavier armament (wing cannons or 12.7mm in the nose). You can have the type 28 as a mod (2 ShVAKs) but I don't know how the cannons decrease the performance of the plane IRL vs in game. And the Bf-109Fs weren't in the server lineup.

 

Probably the most important fact is the difference between tactics, organization and pilot skill. The VVS was in crisis at the beggining of the invasion, they had low trained pilots and used old 30s tactics like the Vic formation, the Germans were exact opposite having developped the finger four and it's doctrine, combined with aces and experienced pilots from the Spanish Civil War and Battle of France/Britain. (Experienced Soviet pilots which returned to the USSR after the Spanish Civil War knew about how these new tactics had to be updated but they couldn't change the doctrine as they were ignored/purged/prosecuted etc).
