The OG server has 3 missions in rotation, here are the briefings.

 

OG The Great War

Brief :  World War I began in 1914, after the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, and lasted until 1918. During the conflict, Germany, Austria-Hungary, Bulgaria and the Ottoman Empire (the Central Powers) fought against Great Britain, France, Russia, Italy, Romania, Japan and the United States (the Allied Powers). Thanks to new military technologies and the horrors of trench warfare, World War I saw unprecedented levels of carnage and destruction. By the time the war was over and the Allied Powers claimed victory, more than 16 million people—soldiers and civilians alike—were dead.

OG The Second Battle of the Marne

Brief :  The Second Battle of the Marne (French: Seconde Bataille de la Marne) (15 July – 6 August 1918) was the last major German offensive on the Western Front during the First World War. The attack failed when an Allied counterattack, supported by several hundred tanks, overwhelmed the Germans on their right flank, inflicting severe casualties. The German defeat marked the start of the relentless Allied advance which culminated in the Armistice with Germany about 100 days later.  

Map : Moscow

Situation : The Germans have Bulged the Line 22nm wide from Chateau Thierry to Colonas thet have captured many valuable resourses including the R/R and equipment and are moving supplies all along the front. Allied Forces Must stop the trains and Germans must protect Them.

Our Objective is two pronged Destroy the Epenary Rail Bridge & Drain the German Fighter Protection just west of the Bridge. The                         Germans are well supplied and dug in all along the front.

AxisWe must spread our fighter protection to cover the Epenary Rail Bridge as well as the R/R Line itself. The Allies will targeting the Bridge lets be prepared. Wipe the skies of there Fighters..

 

OG The Battle of Tannenburg

Brief The Battle of Tannenberg was fought between Russia and Germany between the 26th and 30th of August 1914, the first month of World War I. The battle resulted in the almost complete destruction of the Russian Second Army and the suicide of its commanding general, Alexander Samsonov. A series of follow-up battles destroyed most of the First Army as well and kept the Russians off balance until the spring of 1915. The battle is particularly notable for fast rail movements by the Germans, enabling them to concentrate against each of the two Russian armies in turn, and also for the failure of the Russians to encode their radio messages. It brought considerable prestige to Field Marshal Paul von Hindenburg and his rising staff-officer Erich Ludendorff.

Map : Prokhorovka

Conditions1630 hrs wind light 0deg.@ 4klm @ Takeoff.

Allied : Tannenburg Airfield Home of the 103rd Sq / & The Royal Flying Corps.

Perhaps something is being lost in translation from VR, but for it to be of any use, you must align your view with the sight so that it appears as below, otherwise it's useless.

i understand now to record in VR i centre the view in the headset mirror, so i do in game see that sight picture just like you pic in my right eye, with both eyes open, but due to you seeing a centred view for recording, you are not seeing the actual yellow dot and circle, i see in my right eye. hope this makes more sense.

 

Part Five

New Mission "All Along the Front"
