Historical Campaign "Fortress on the Volga" - Discussion

Recommended Posts

This was a lot of fun and the story before each mission added a great load av immersion. After reading the story I put on my Rift and I'm right there in my 109 with a background story, ready for take off.

Great missions with a lot of interesting fight going on.

Looking forward to your next campaign and I happily pay for it.

Thanks!

My next campaign will be devoted to the actions of the special IL-2 group (from 226th ShAD 8th Air Armу) in November - December 1942 as it was chosen by the community)

Outstanding campaign! Great fun dogfighting all those La-5s and Yak-1s for which basic armament of G-2 is sufficient, but I was getting more and more frustrated versus Il-2s and Pe-2s. With my single cannon-ed bird (the 7,9s aren't even worth mentioning versus these) I felt like trying to kill partially sedated boars with a sewing needle. 

Finally I arrived to the "KanonenBoot" mission yesterday and got a couple of those cement IL-2s with it - but sheer number of enemies is becoming daunting! Despite winning an aerial Kill to Death ratio, Reds are winning the numbers game nevertheless. Like somebody said: "The idea is not to outkill, but rather to outproduce them."

 

Hat's off BlackSix!

Thanks! I tried to show that Soviet aviation had an overwhelming numerical advantage all time, but their actions were ineffective and this situation persisted until the end of the war, apart from rare exceptions.

Hey BlackSix,

I just want to write while it's fresh on my mind.  Fortress Volga mission #3 is one of the most fun SP missions I have played.  What a hot mess! ...just the way I like it.  I've replayed it a few times just because I don't want it to be over with only two kills.  

 

(Here's what I like about it if feedback helps you:  Short commute to work.  Busy world, fog of war.  Different flights with different objectives.   Often, cool to see a real war on the ground.  Good challenge without playing the same exact dogfight over and over.)   

 

I haven't played Sea Dragons but your fighter campaigns rock.  Hope you're coming to Flying Circus soon.   

 

(And I like that you're working toward making the campaigns more replayable, like you said in the Stormbirds interview.)

 

Thanks,

Ceowulf<><

Thanks! The third mission was the most difficult, I've spent about three weeks to make and debug it))
Regarding
Flying Circus, I don’t know anything about WWI aviation and I've never been interested in this period. So I can't create any missions for FC but I've huge plans for the WWII aviation campaigns.

Black Six is the master of Campaign Making.  Two thumbs up! I love them! :good:

Just a tiny comment, I wish you reconsidered the possibility of having official campaigns with collector planes. :ph34r:

Keep making those campaigns and I'll keep buying them!   :)  For me they're quickly becoming the heart and soul of Great Battles.

I'm currently doing the campaign. 

I have to say that I'm normally an online player only. I thought I could give it a try with the promotion of the moment. Against all my expectations, I'm having a lot of fun and I'm sure I'll play more scripted campaign in the future. 

 

Thx you for your work!

Welp, finished the campaign and it was a blast, thank you @BlackSix

I had it on hold during the last month but finally managed to complete all the missions.

The briefings were really good and ever mission felt different. Can't wait for your next work.

Just bought it today. First time I buy a scripted campaign, I thought about it like 1000 times but the good comments and the fact that Im tired of QMB made me do that 😅. And since 109G-2 is one of my favs plane, I decided to give it a try. Seems to be exciting according comments, lets try it out!

I bought this. Only $4,99. I’ll bet this is way too hard for my skills, but I’ll give it a shot. This is also my first scripted campaign. I’ll let you know how I progress 😄

Just finished "05. One Step Ahead" (blockading Srednyaya Ahtuba airfield). Just managed to shot down 2 La's, then my plane got hit and my fuel started running out (got hit in there). So I decided to back home, but when I was over Stalingrad, I couldn't resist the temptation (lol) and engaged a Yak1. Hell, I couldn't shot him down, I guess he was on "ace" difficulty, no matter what, we always was at the 9 o'clock of the other one, and I couldn't do some energy fighting so I just disengaged after some minutes trying to get his 6. So finally I went back to Pitomnik, with 2 enemies down, but sad because I really really wanted to bring that Yak down :( lol.

 

Great missions so far!

 

I was really scared about buying Scripted Campaigns, but I'm having a lot of fun, 0 regret! Thanks for the well done job BlackSix!

 

 

EDIT:

If someday you can build a Scripted Campaign about a FW190... Count on me, for sure I gonna buy it😂

Thanks!

About Fw 190 campaign - I'm afraid it will be possible for BoBP only in the far future.  I encountered a number of problems and I’m not sure that I can create a campaign about II./Sch.G 1 for BoK.
