  7. So a few days ago I asked the question on ammo loadouts, whats the difference between blue and orange coloured ammo on the equipment screen. I since found the answer for those that are interetsed. Blue = Armour Peircing - Orange = High Explosive So in other words, Blue for PK and engine hits, and Orange for control surfaces and blowing bits off your target. Thank me later.

  11. I have to tell you this story Delta... On one of the cruises I shared with my late wife Janie we were cruising around the UK....there were 3 thousand US and Canadian passengers and a few hundred UK...not that that mattered. One morning we went for breakfast and, as was the practice, we ended up on a random table seating 8 with 6 Scots. All couples so the conversation was easy. The subject of porridge came up and obviously I got scowled at because I like mine with milk, honey....anything to give it some flavour apart from water and salt. Not to say I haven't tried it with water and sa

So: Keep: Settings as they were Remove: Nothing My comments from last night's 'after battle' chat: 1. Any icon over a tank will destroy any stealth or camouflage and any advantage created by the driver. 2. I think it is difficult to bomb a tank or strafe it and cause sufficient damage to destroy it. Air attacks on tanks last night generally broke tracks which resulted in the driver havin

  13. Thanks Col, that was a great deal of fun! The ground/air coordination added a challenging element and I think the capture the flag objective worked just right. You evidently put a lot of effort into this and it paid off, kudos to you sir. I look forward to the next one. I just wish I'd recorded the moment I flew under the bridge in a 110 as a Sherman crossed overhead. 😄

  16. 402ND: Grand show! Third time in a row your Leader had to like return home at the first moment of interaction with an enemy due to damages, and you'll did good again out there on your own. Three perfect pairs! Special Thanks to 2Lt. Dennis Winger: You have now completed three missions, and in all three you had to escort your damaged leader on his way home - you did a perfect job!

  17. Interesting, as I landed at the emergency airfield with time to go on the mission I took to counting the bullet holes, and other holes in my aircraft. I counted 73 small calibre holes and 7 large holes ranging from hand to dinner plate size - all on the right wing, right engine and right tail boom of my aircraft. My attack on the airfield reminded me very clearly of a passage in Pierre Closterman's "Big Show" where he described a strafing run on an airfield with his section of Typhoons, and after describing how murderous the flak was, after his pass he looked back and realised he was the

  20. Morning Gents After having spoken to Jabo and Tbone it was decided to start two subforums, one for skins and skinning resources, the other for Mods. This has been done for housekeeping and a bit of clarity really. If you started a thread that you have in another post and you think it would be better in one of the new subforums please PM Jabo and he will move it across. Your thread can still be seen in it's original place but there is a link that will take you to the new position. Ta very much.

Debrief for the 14th November 1944: 370th FG: 402nd - Bombing of rail targets, Bonn. 485th - Patrol for Air Targets over Front Lines, Gerolstein-Nettersheim sector 410th BG - Bombing of infantry positions near Nettersheim. The 402nd under the charge of Capt. Efftee led a highly successful mission; excellent bombing results in Bonn wiped out the briefed rail targets plus a smattering of peripheral trucks and AAA. As the squadron circled the city trying to pick out any other targets Red 4 2nd Lt. Bowen spotted bogeys to

  24. A. To install JSGME if you currently do not have it. If you do have it, then move to B. 1. Download JSGME (Jones Generic Mod Enabler) from: https://www.softpedia.com/get/Others/Miscellaneous/Generic-Mod-Enabler.shtml#download 2. Unzip JSGME to a temporary folder, and run jsgme_setup.exe, install it to your BOS game folder 3. Run JSGME.exe that was placed in that folder. It will start and a screen will display, it will show you the standard folder it will create where your MODS need to be placed. 4. Now close JSGME. This sets up the proper location for the JSGME MODs folder for your

  25. 402nd: I am truly impressed with what we did this mission, and how we did it. We hit our main target hard, and dealt with targets of opportunity as well. And all of that in a coordinated and efficient manner. Great teamwork ... And all of us landed back at home base. Y'all made this Capt. rather proud! Thanks Guys!!

Debrief for the 11th November 1944: 370th FG: 402nd - Escort of RAF B-25s to Krefeld. 485th - Patrol for Air Targets over Front Lines, Gymnich-Düsseldorf sector 410th BG - Bombing of convoy near Düsseldorf Another longer range mission mission today. The 485th ran their air patrol but yet again the Luftwaffe refrained our advances and so they took to harassing the Krauts on the ground; however the Flak arm put up a great deal of resistance and for once inhibited the usually robust 485th efforts. 2nd Lt.

  35. A note from the 410th Bomb Group. The mission to bomb ground targets near to Rotterdam using A20s worked and resulted in a number of targets destroyed by Major Sid Viscous. There was only one technical issue and that was that no AI aircraft took off and joined me for the mission. The waypoints to the target from Eindhoven were nicely spaced and allowed for a reasonably steady climb to 14,200ft through the waypoints. Careful monitoring of engine temps was necessary to avoid overheating in the climb but it was perfectly doable as the rendezvous waypoint for the escorting P51s was a long way

  38. 485th : Bloody shame we were the first Sqn to fall foul of this new Gerry ploy to cover an airfield in dispersed trucks instead of aircraft and set up devastating AAA. Two aircraft damaged and two lost ! Not good. We did well on our primary objective and needless to say we would have been better off heading home after that. Trouble is you chaps want to destroy targets so it’s hard to just ignore them. In future we will have a dam good look at exactly how high the value of any target is before risking airframes and pilots. Talking of which we have heard that 2nd Lt Sidney Gittins and

  39. We've had several Dogz in attendance at every Legends since 2007, so hopefully we'll do the same again next year. We've not been getting to Duxford that early as the access is reasonably straight-forward but this may need to change a bit at Sywell where country lanes seem to be the order of the day. Breakfast and coffee are always on the roster!

Northamptonshire Dave, an hour to the West of Duxford and closer to you! http://www.sywellaerodrome.co.uk/ https://goo.gl/maps/b2wzdrcRHWaasvDZ7 It's also home of the Grace Spitfire / Ultimate Warbirds / Air Leasing and a number of other operators. Could get busy round those lanes though from what I've heard, they'll probably have to limit the numbers considerably compared to DX.
