Hello! I replied on your Facebook post as well. Do you except Americans? I fly mostly SP/Campaign mode and always fly fighter/bomber roles. I own BOS/BOM and the 190A3 model.

Hallo CrazyJow!

 

Nope, we had a whole Gruppe of americans, but their commander lost all his men to other squadrons. Now we have no americans in our roster, mainly because very huge timezone difference.

 

If You are looking for a good squadron, for nice guys to fly with, I suggest You to look into I./JG54 "Green Heart". They are from North America, they fly fighters and fighter/bombers. I am sure this squad will suit You :)

Bad state of Wespengeschwader equipment in summer 1942, in the heat of Battle of Stalingrad:

On 1.08.1942, ZG1 had:

I./ZG1 - 15 Bf110F-4, 26 Bf110E-2/U4, 8 Bf110D, and 3 Bf110C.

II./ZG 1 - 8 Bf110F-4, 28 Bf110E-2/U4, 10 Bf110D, and 6 Bf110C.

 

Bf110C in 1942, damnit! Aircrafts were produced 2,5 years ago!

 

Bf110C's of I./ZG1 on the airfield Frolov, Stalingrad area, September 1942.

Interesting stuff. One would think that in war fellow soldiers would not hinder one another like that. It looks like silly corporate business backstabbing.
