Hi  guys,

If you wonder:

"Where the hell was Biggles"

I was in the middle of a very large group of Stuka`s!

I was a bit surprised too, they looked like Bees!

Surrounding me!


From the ground it must have looked like an AIRSHOW!


Nice flying!

THX all of all the hours of fun in FNBN!

And Cheers for Tip!




Well, it was one of the nicest Stuka Kills I got so far. I told everyone the Stuka is a great Fighter and got to prove it.

Untill somebody comes up with something better,a little impression of my view :


Well ya'll said you wanted something different for this last one. Double/Triple vision. :) Dropped a link to deactivate the C-trig for the ship routine. Sorry about that gents. Did create a target rich environment for ya's though.


Some shots of the first sortie for the He-111 crewe. Target  for Today: The Large Factory Complex at Leninsk.

Although there was a lone Yak shadowing us. Strong escort on the ingress negated any air to air...


Hits on Target...


Past the Volga on egress with a couple Heinkels trailing due to flak damage the Boogiemen show up...



Some gotta Win... Some gotta Lose... Tailend Charlie got the Blues...




Excellent Action out there Folks...

So what happened to the 216th?

Along with our trusty escorts Lucas and Alexmarine we took six Il-2s. Nocke, SilentEskimo, Cathaoir, Pod, 1.JaVa Jumper and myself to attack the Beketovka docks. Wiped out a flotilla of small torpedo boats and sunk a 7000-tonner but lost half the flight due to flak.

2nd sortie went to Barrikady and disposed of the tank columns there for a couple of losses - JG5 Schuck got amongst us at one point.

3rd sortie - now this was even more  interesting! Back to a point on the Volga north of Beketovka to dispose of an S-boat patrol; here's Nocke doing just that:




then down the river to bomb the warehouses. However, as we approached, another swarm of little E-boats rushed out to greet us!




They were a new German secret type - triple-hulled oscillating boats!




Not only triple-hulled but triple-armed; there are six AAA guns on this 'boat'! Quite a lot of flak!




Nevertheless we began to take them out... I spotted this one trying to escape into the woods :blink:




Between Eskimo and myself we finished off the truants, which rolled over and sank into the marsh.




Eventually the multiple AAA was too much and we lost all aircraft except one, but we did get a lot of ship kills!


Great fun Tip, thankyou to yourself and DBS for putting this event on for us - hopefully you will be able to do some more later on. Friday's won't be the same now.

Cheers. :salute:

Okay, here´s what happened to 110´s. Last FNBF, my first AAR :)

Bf-110´s were assigned to attack tank column near Ezovka, north of Stalingrad. I joined forces with SCG_CorZero and and SCG_happy_meal.



After we got confirmation from the G-14's that the sky was clear of enemy, we began pouring hell on 1st Guards. Racked up decent amount of ground kills. But our work was all but finished.



For second sortie we decided to concentrate on remaining tanks that were lurking under the canvases. Our tools of the trade were Hs-129 and two 110 G-2's. Enroute to target we ran into a group of A20's doing something we thought they shouldn´t.



The decision was easy: we jettisoned our ordnances and attacked the bombers.



The flight of G-14´s, our guardians above, joined willingly the fight. All (but one?) unescorted bombers were destroyed.


We continued our original plan, but unfortunately we've lost the Hs-129. The 110 G-2´s strafing runs were successful, but as it so often goes, we over extended our invitation, and got jumped by a La-5 and a Yak. After an intense, yet desperate fight, the G2's were lost. Two of our pilots were KIA, one walked back to the base after bailing out.



In my opinion FNBF got a worthy finale. Very immersive, action packed and intense event as usual, enjoyed it immensely. Thank you Tip for your hard work and everybody else who´s participated. It´s been great to be able to take part of this! :salute:

Comrades! It is one of the best traditions of the Great Red Air Fleet to defeat the Blue and foster the fine arts. We were able to win the famous Alexander Iwanowitsch Laktionow to paint night and day. So now we're able to present the great patriotic cycle "Stalingrad, Steppe, Peschka". I dare to say some of these remarkable pieces of Soviet realism once will be a seen in any school book!



Westward over the river Volga - against then enemy!



The river Don - further on!



The might comes down on them!



Teeth of the enemy



Comrade, will you make it home?



Keep your distance when we become angry



Volga, Steppe, Stalingrad - he made it!



Home sweet home - proud Peschkas
