In the absence of the Reichsminister für Volksaufklärung und Propaganda, mission reports have been posthumously compiled by Oberfeldwebel Raptor1.

Mission 2:
Objective: II./JG 5 escort bombers to Orienbaum

Found ourselves in the air escorting the entire Luftwaffe to demolish the poor town of Orienbaum. Following the most brilliantly planned flight path laid out by the OKL, we found ourselves flying over Kronstadt as Soviet aircraft were taking off from the airfield below; LaGG-3s and Stalin Carriers. Having determined these to be vital to the Soviet war effort, we executed a steep dive to engage. Immediately following the start of the engagement, Arclight's cockpit was shot out by long range fire and he was killed. I went after some of the Soviet fighters and, in the course of high speed maneuvering, blacked out. I regained consciousness just high enough above the frozen sea below to snap my wing in an attempt to pull up and subsequently died. Meanwhile, Task Force was engaged by a horde of LaGGs, blacked out and died. HunterICX successfully engaged and destroyed two Stalin Carriers before being damaged by enemy fire. He attempted to bug out but was chased down by enemy aircraft and killed.

OKL Assessment: Vodka shipment stopped. Mission totally successful.

Mission 3:
Objective: II./KG 30 bomb enemy battle tractors in Putilovo

Took off from Siverskaya in overloaded Ju 88s and headed (very slowly) for the target area. En route, we encountered a Soviet train armed with an anti-aircraft gun which expertly shot down one bomber of our squadron. Overhead, enemy fighters engaged our escorts at high altitude. Arriving at the target area, we successfully managed to destroy the bridge north of Putilovo and most wildlife in the area. Enemy tractors were apparently unharmed. Shortly afterwards, HunterICX stalled his aircraft into the ground, killing himself and his gunner, Task Force. On the way back to base, we encountered the Soviet train continuing its advance on our territory near Ulianovka. Going to battle stations, Arclight fired at it with the aeroplane's machine guns while I engaged the train in aerial jousting. The train won. Having lost an engine to the train's gun after successfully failing to deliver damage to it, we bugged out to the nearest airfield and managed to effect an emergency landing.

OKL Assessment: Enemy ground forces utterly destroyed. Mission totally successful. Reports of communist train activity behind friendly lines are overrated.

All photographic evidence of these engagements has been confiscated for security reasons. (Also, I can't take screenshots without crashing the game)

It's also clear to me that the He111 is more suitable for dive bombing then the Ju-88
Also that train, perhaps it's the soviet equivalent of the German Minesweeper? I say in name of the Fatherland we should attempt to destroy it when encountered during a flight.

Mission 4:
Obliterate Soviet armour near a bridge near Leningrad

We took off (and then took off), and then proceeded to find the armour, drop our salvo of SC-500s on them...the KVs and Su-70s laughed at the bombs and carried on.
On the way back to base the Soviet Train (TM) was sighted...

There is no available record to the rest of the mission...


Ready for take-off


Following Hunter


The armoured vehicles are spotted


Direct hits but the armoured vehicles are having none of it


Second pass, Hunter and Raptor attempt to get Task Force and Arclight to gun down any soft skinned vehicles


Nope.avi


ACHTUNG!!






Not even human sacrifice will sate the hunger of the beast...the German minesweeper of the Soviet Railway

First take-off began well...then Raptor decided to go off to Helsinki by road


Unfortunately for him the evil Soviets had put a town in the way...


Second time around was a bit more aerial in nature. I decide to teach the AI how to formation fly...


Then I promptly fall out of the formation whilst looking for my fuel gauge...


Meanwhile Raptor sneaks up and tries his hand at formation flying


And then a Soviet Hurricane arrives and tries its hand at shooting us down with cannons...it goes unsurprisingly well...

The second mission we all took one He-111 with Hunter piloting, it started out fairly normal...


Then suddenly got very dramatic as a flight of I-16s bounced us from dead ahead, they curved around and came in quickly from astern


We got shot up, but carried on, dumping our bombs on Leningrad before turning back for base, our starboard engine dying mid-route


The I-16s followed us back but were content to feast on the AI while we made a dash for the airstrip


Victory doughnut!

That was a eventful flight
flying the bombers is a lot of fun if you crew them up with players

Indeed, it's a shame that you can't have a dedicated bombardier/fore gunner.

Perhaps one night a week we could have an all in one bomber night, playing something like this:

Or this:

Because I want to fly through flak like this:

Sorry that I'm not that much around anymore but my job makes me get up early and simply run out of power before and go to bed again before we meet.
