Another mass departure with fighters escort
Flight of 12 Ju-87 + 1 Me-110 and a cover
Target: Factory destroyed. Lost 1хМе-110 from anti-aircraft guns. The escort fighters shot down 4 - 5 reds

 

Why am I not in the cool kids club and why wasn't I invited to this party? All I've ever wanted was a full staffel of Stuka bro's to fly with. 900 hours in game and the most I've flown with at once was 5 I think.

It's interesting to see how concerned people are with GPS and "realism" when these scenarios don't use realistic frontlines or plane loadouts.

We used marshall Zhukov's memoir to create our first Stalingrad mission. Frontlines, targets, etc has been placed as the map showed in that book.

Yeah but will Stuka's have 37mm cannons and He 111's have SC 1800's? I mean I'm not saying you have to be 100% realistic, I just never understand people doing only part of it that way. I think too black and white I know... sorry I don't mean to be a pain.

Yes Netscape I prefer TS as it gets the job done without all the peripherals so to speak ! It is nice that the server has both TS and discord )

Welcome, Fellow Aviators!
In the last few days, we received a lot of constructive feedback about our missions, and we reworked targets, and such as AAA. Thank you for your efforts!

We created Two new missions: Moscow1941Autumn: rainy weather, early planes. Regarding to your feedback, Dear Pilots, we added some more plane variants. Thank you, again!

                                                        Stalingrad1943Snowy:  Snowy weather, without wind, but with realistic air preassure.  If we left out some plane                                                                                                                                          variant, please feel free to report that to me here in PM, or on our Discord. 

Also, We have a new important information for you. We decided to turn GPS off, but(!) only on every Saturday (for now). This event will start on 29th of September.
-[HRAF]vad-asz recorded some "teaser" about our latest missions. Here they are:

Me either...

 

Observation from flying in the rain today (12 Sep) from the POV of over 47 years as a RL pilot. I like the idea of widespread rain showers and limited visibility...but the steady rain falling in a 360 degree bright blue sky without discernible rain clouds was surreal. I've never flown in anything like it. Looking straight up I could what appeared to be very high mammatus (non rain making) layer. I never got above 2000 meters.

 

I still had fun. Somebody made a great unobserved entry and killed me while Requiem was line abreast. The first clue was the cannon shell impact. :salute:  And later whilst solo, I managed to corner six 109E-7s in my I-16 (god my gunnery sucks) before killing myself in a break turn at 50 meters.:gamer:

 

My humble suggestion would be to darken the sky with heavier cloud cover. Against a bright blue sky, the rain showers take on the appearance of virga (rain that doesn't reach the ground). 

 

Again, thanks for a GREAT server!

Hello Everybody! 
Today we will update our Stalingrad1943WinterSnowy mission. The update will bring some more targets, reworked russian airfields(they are placed much closer to the frontlines, big thanks to Talon for the feedback).
Sorry for any inconveniences.

Hi gents,

 

for the 29. September with the special event GPS off, it would be maby a good idea to have sunny maps.

So if some beginner join too, they have not so a hard time to navigate like on the normal maps with weather.

 

regards

Today on TAW, which doesn't use the gps. To use it seems not to be the recipe of success...

Soon many guys will be tired by the limitation of planes rule in TAW. They will search an alternative full real server, without these kind of silly rules... Hurry up and drop this gps in trash, his true place when it's about ww2 simulator 😜

No silly rules there. That is what makes TAW special and more demanding than other servers. Although I do love KOTA as well, there is nothing like TAW :)

Yeah that's not why TAW is full, not sure why you are so out of touch with reality bud.

Like I said several time in previous messages, WoL is oldest server and pilots are used to fly in since ... long time. Naturally many return back in more easily, disavantaging others younger servers which offer similar missions and rules.

I agree, it's not the only one reason. But what I meant by this comparison is that let the '' gps off '' obviously doesn't seem to be a hindrance on success

TAW is already a known mark, same as WoL. The main reason of such player number is being well known and already running for years... (and also very limited number of really hardcore players)

 

Btw that mission with heavy snowing yesterday ( Stalingrad1943WinterSnowy), that was probably the most immersive fighter experience I had so far :salute: Those scenarios with bad weather have some magic in themselves :)

 

Edit: TAW has really weird planesets sometimes. For example blue side only has 109 E-7 and Mc 202 as fighters now :biggrin:

Very nice formation! Thank you for joining, and see you around!

I know a good fight came out, unfortunately a lot of stuttering during flight, a compact formation did not work, but however in the target area was about 20 blue aircraft, I counted in countering the 7-8 red aircrafts)

1941...... Are you new?

 

Only E-7 and Mc 202 at Moscow? What about F-2 and F-4? Im not new. Its just totally unhistorical. Battle of Britain maybe, but not late 1941 BoM.

It's made so there is at least one map to give some love to those "second-rate" planes... as in a highly competitive environment as TAW with the rest of the fighters at hand they wouldn't be prioritized really.

I know that. Just reacted on someone who thought Luftwaffe had 109 E-7 only at that time... 😄
