DFLion_'Flames in the Dusk'_single_mission


Recommended Posts

This is a historical mission from Pierre Clostermann’s novel ‘The Big Show’.

Clostermann flew this mission in April 1945 and it was nearly his last. May I recommend to you to watch ‘Lemsip’s’ excellent video of this mission.

Clostermann’s ‘B’ flight only had 3 serviceable Tempests and their supporting flight, ‘A’ flight, had the remaining 4 serviceable Tempests. ‘A’ flight would carry out an ‘armed reconnaissance’ over German airfields to the north of Clostermann’s patrol area and come to their rescue if they got into trouble.

They soon got into trouble? Clostermann’s flight ran into thirty Focke-Wulfs, bombing and strafing the autobahn east of Bremen.

This is a tough mission, see if you can survive and bring your flight back to Volkel? Take-off from Volkel when you see the second green flare. JG26 Focke-Wulfs are your adversaries, led by their ace pilot Oblt. Hans Dortenmann.

 

Use RAF 3 Squadron skins and JG26 44/45 skins for this mission. Again a big thankyou to our skin makers for their efforts. DFLion

Hi alpension,

Go to 'Skins and templates' in IL2Sturmovik Great Battles and then scroll down through the various skins until you see what you want - download. You will then have to use the 'Mission Builder' to place your skins in the sim against your aircraft - you will have to learn to do this?
