It's a voice-chat thingy. Really, just a program with which you log into a server with others so you can talk to each other.

Don't think the Il-2 flights are really planned at this point, more of a "get people together and decide what to do" kind of affair.

Decisiveness is not a common virtue it turns out.

OK! I have the picture clear, thanks for that!

After managing to keep in a lovely formation all the way to the half-way point a Hurricane sighting scatters us. So I tag onto a gaggle of bombers and escort them


Got to admit, their formation flying skills are not...well...they're just not.



I'm caught out of position over Murmansk when the bombers are jumped by a couple of Hurricanes


Landing with the rotte licht only minutes away from coming on I'd wager.



Myself, TF and Hunter, with Raptor dead and Arc still in the air.

I claim two Hurricanes. Nearly added a 109 to that list when I spotted it shooting down Heinkels...that was a bit odd. And Arc, what the heck did you shoot to get -400?

A bomber. Big, fat, juicy bomber. Figured it would tell me friendly or no after short burst. Of course, that short burst took a wing off...

Did I ever mention my ID skills are non-existent?

I wonder if you were the 109 I nearly shot down...I didn't spot any nav lights on though...

Pretty good flight... till a Hurricane exploded in my face!

The lag during that flight though, Planes kept zipping around like mad.

What's up with that last picture?

Nobody is upside down, or in flames! Tsk! Not the Lolwaffles I've become accustomed to.

I'm in tiny pieces scattered across the map after a collision with the third Hurricane I shot down (But of course I only got credit for one, stupid terminal velocity)...

And I'm legging it from the Gestapo.

The level of incompetence varies, but it's there. Always.

I'm not sure I'll be around tonight. I've spent 11h in the office.
