I have the battle of stalingrad, kuban and bodenplatte, my question is if I start my career in stalingrad can I continue to kuban and then to bodenplatte with the same character? And do a single long career and keep my stats......assuming I survive everything.

Thank you.

 

Guessing that to continue to Bodenplatte you might have to be German :)

yes with a german character and is the same with the pwcg tool?

 

Yes. 

 

PWCG also has "faux" Eastern Front 1944 (repurposes Stalingrad map) and eastern Germany 1945 (repurposes Rhine map) campaigns to let Russian pilots fly to the end of the war.  German pilots can also fly eastern front until 1945, as well as transfer back and forth between east and west after Sept 1944.  PWCG also models the German assault on Kuban in 1942 as well as the Russian assault in 1943.  Along with a short sitzkrieg modeled on the Stalingrad map to cover the period between Moscow and Kuban 1942, you can fly from Oct 1941 to May 1945 with no interruptions.

 

Russian pilots do not get the best late war Russian planes because they do not exist in the game, but some of the types (Yak 9T) that they do have were flown to the end of the war, so it's not all bad.

Many thanks, one last thing, to go from the eastern front (1942-43) to the western front (1944-45) as a German pilot in PWCG do I have to select all the maps when creating my career?

You have to own them, but you do not have to select them.  The units are continuous, so if you move to a new map it is the same squadron, same squadron mates, etc.,  just a new place.  Moving to the next map just happens.

Thank you very much for the answers, they were very useful

The pwcg tool looks really impressive, if I can abuse a little of this thread, what are the main differences from this tool to the standard stock BoX careers?

I have played a bit of both in the battle of bodenplatte and in the stock campaign playing as a fighter, everything is patrolling, finding a lot of enemy fighters and fighting with them and with the PWCG campaign, many times I have found bomber formations with their escorts and I have to try to shoot them down without being shot down myself, i think this is the mission we all want to fly as a German fighter in 1944-45. What I'm trying to say is that PWCG offers a much less monotonous campaign.

You can have bomber intercept missions in the game's career mode, too, depending on the unit you select. But the missions in PWCG are much more believable, than the career mode missions. Only advantage of the bomber intercept missins of the career mode are the formations of the bombers, flying in three ship V- formations. On the other side, as soon as you kill or heavily damage one bomber of a formation, the other two jettison their bombs and RTB, which is nonsense.
