  1. When: This Sunday, 22nd November 2020. Where: DangerDogz Dog Fight Server. What Time: The event will start at approximately 20:00 UK time For How Long: The server will be set for a maximum of 2 hours however the event itself has a built in timer for 90 minutes. The game will announce when there is 30 minutes remaining of the 90 minutes. A decision can be made at this point to extend if required. Scenario: Capture The Flag. By driving a tank to within 75 meters of the flag it will change to your sides colours (German for Axis, Russian for Allies). You do not have to leave a

  2. Apologies to all that last night was a bust; obviously there were a number of technical issues, many of which that were no one persons fault, but considering it took 40 minutes to get from server up (2120) to ultimate scrubbing (2200) there is obviously some work that is required. I have my suspicions that my internet connection is partially to blame; it may also have to do with the server being hosted by a player - DCS seems to run happier with a segregated host/client architecture and I suspect GBS may be the same. I will look into options hosting the campaign on the DDz dedicate

  3. 410 BG. 2 pilots, 2nd lt Major Major and 2nd lt David Crosby flew straight to the target area, as we didnt have a flight plan,and searched for targets. We flew low level and located several groups of enemy forces. We then proceeded to drop bombs on them scoring 7 hits each. Not wishing to get shot at more than we needed to, we headed home and made safe landings at our home field.

  7. Debrief 410th BG What started as a flight of four A20s soon became a flight of three as unfortunately Sheriff encountered a recurring technical issue that prevents him from moving beyond the hangar. I really hope you can get it resolved mate. The 410th BG were given transport and road targets at Remegan so the usual load of 100% fuel and twenty 200lb bombs were loaded with a view to level bombing with a two second bomb 'walk' over the target. Cloud base was below 6000ft so the climb out and rendezvous with Spitfires relatively close to Eindhoven was a simple task as we didn't need to

  8. VICTORY IS MINE!!!! Or, more accurately, victories are now FTs and Reggies. Only took four hours. I will complete the forum debrief when I have re-invigorated my stocks of give-a-sh*t, 'cause right now I'm fresh out.

  9. Debrief from the 410th BG A flight of 3 A20s took off from Eindhoven and, showing great airmanship and engine management skills, carried out a steep climb out and up to the fighter rendezvous at 14,500ft together and with no engine overheating. We met the Spitfire escort and continued on to the target at Zulpich. The cloud above the cloud base at 10,000ft was dense and with virtually no visibility through it or adequate gaps it was decided to level bomb from just below the cloud base. The target was marked as being in the centre of Zulpich so our job was made easier as we had an obvious a

  12. Gentlemen, I have some news... As many of you are aware, at the inception of this campaign, both the 402nd and the 485th were supposed to be based, as in reality, at the same airfield, that is Florennes/Juzaine (A-78). However, due to apparent limitations with PWCG and GBS, this was not to be; we had issues with aircraft from one squadron spawning inside or partially interfering with aircraft of the other and it resulted in my being obliged to move the 485th to another airfield, some 50km to the NE in order for the campaign to be playable and to get us started. It has stuck in m

  13. Quite an eventful sortie for the group today; both the 402nd and 485th were assigned air patrols in the area east of Verviers between Malmedy & Eupen. It was a beautiful, clear dawn, however that blinding eastern sun held some surprises as both squadrons ran into e/a well behind friendly lines, with 485th encountering a mixed force of long nose Fw 190s and Bf 109s around Angels 10 - needless to say, a robust engagement ensued. 485th took some casualties but the Krauts paid dearly for it, 8 e/a being shot down. However, we are sad to report that Lt Denny Pook is missing presumed killed

  16. One more quote from my grandfather...and one of his best ever. Back in 1970 when I was 11, he took me down to Biggin Hill to see the air show and have a look at the Battle of Britain memorial flight first hand. I can't tell you my disappointment when instead of heading straight to the airfield he stopped at the old pub in the village...which had a closed sign up. When we got into the pub it was full of old blokes all shouting and laughing at eachother...turned out it was a few of my boyhood heroes...ones that I had read about and had most of their their photos on my bedroom wall...

I have attached a Word document sheet and a downloadable jpeg each for Allied and Axis that shows, by type, the actions and default key mappings for each crew position. I found it really useful to go through the positions and try the mappings available to see what occurred. I found some interesting stuff eg.

  18. Lightning Strikes PWCG P-38 Campaign for Il-2:GBS Welcome, pilot, to the Ninth U.S. Army Air Force, the United States Tactical Air Force in the European Theatre of Operations. You will be providing direct air cover and close air support to our troops on the frontline as they slog it out with the Nazi German forces still occupying the beleaguered nations in Western Europe. Our ultimate goal is not simply to push them back to the German frontier, but to smash through that border and finally crush the Nazi War Machine and march on - and through - Berlin! The going will be to

We hope to have some pics of the first FCII plane, the Nieuport 28 soon for you, but today we’ll stick to WWII. As you already know, We have several aircraft in development and the closest, actually very close, to completion is the Spitfire Mk.XIV which is currently in beta testing. Below are a few pics. This plane is a beast with its Griffon engine and shooting down Doodlebugs with it is going to be a bla

  20. 1st December 1944 - 402nd Mission debrief Upon ingress to the patrol area at angels 12, Red 3 spotted four bandits below us still within the frontline, N/W of Nettersheim. Red flight immediately dropped down to trail the E/A, now confirmed as 262s, with White flight providing top cover. Whilst the four 262s were duly dispatched by Red flight, White flight spotted and engaged a formation of six Ju 88s higher and to the North of Nettersheim. Red flight re-grouped with White flight who had already got plenty stuck in to jerry and assisted in bringing down all E/A. With the squadr

  22. more news mmmmmm Dear friends, So, here is the new year 2021! Like anyone else, we're going to hope that it will be better than the previous one. However, for IL-2 Great Battles, the last year was quite positive in spite of all complications. We hope that we'll build on this success this year - the plans are quite extensive. Let's start with the first in-game shots of the British fighter Hawker Typhoon Mk.Ib which is being developed for the Battle of Normandy. As you can see, it looks nearly complete, but in fact, there is still a lot to do - a hefty chunk of work is

  27. Understood Reggie but it was the kind of thing that would haunt my dreams in the small hours, particularly as it was my absent-mindedness to blame. My own eye for detail would cause this to gnaw at my soul henceforth, so it was as much to save my own sanity as to see justice done to two hard working virtual pilots. Besides, if Painless thought for even a moment that the 485th was being denied legitimate kills, he and Artie would break out the tin-foil hats and cries of "CONSPIRACY" would forever plague our Teamspeak channel. Thusly it is better for us all that I did this!

  29. Whoopsie-daisy! Just been handed this footage by a member of the USAAF 9th AF film crew who had a narrow escape filming P-38s of the 370th FG land after an early November sortie on the frontline. Pleased to say no injuries reported and only two aircraft written off for spares. We've had a word with his commanding officer, totally irresponsible of him to be out there distracting our pilots whilst busy landing. Their minds are already overloaded by deciding on what to drink that evening.

  30. Mixed bag this time out 485th, wing men like Capt Dave Prang don’t grow on trees !. Hope our replacement, 2Lt Joe Walsh flys as well as he apparently plays the guitar! The technical problems which occurred before we took off are being looked in to by the crew chiefs and will hopefully not plague us again. We can not afford to loose three experienced pilots before we even get off the ground. In flight problems concerning vision, specifically target acquisition, can and WILL be rectified with a combination of the correct spectacles and medication ! Other than that well done for

  31. Server now running 4.501 Unfortunately, we have lost some of the GoodCoops missions - there are only four left at the moment. Sure, will start saving them again, but this time we should only put missions in that have the original .mission file, as with bigger updates (like 4.501 is) the .msbin can no longer be loaded... Oh well... Looks like I found a workaround for this...

  36. 410th BG 4 aircraft took off from Eindhoven to carry out a recce in the area north east of Prum. An uneventful flight to the area apart from the fighter escort appearing then disappearing, didn't see them for the rest of the flight duration. On reaching the patrol area and just before turning onto the Northern leg along the lines we were attacked by Fw190s. These were called out by Delta but they attached themselves to us very quickly. Sid picked up damage in their first attack so he turned back over the lines and headed home but was chased by a determined 190. Delta and Crash had a dogfi

And what Fen said: Very often I find myself thinkin' : "Mission objective complete, lets go home! " but still it takes a while to get there, because distractions and diversions and stuff and I'm like "oh dear, NO!" especially when I am supposed to be leading the gang .... Yeah, scared stiff regularly - not only for my persona as such, but for all of us - just hate it to find one of us not comin' home..

  45. The older I get, the more of a pacifist I am becoming, so this does indeed interest me. To be honest, flying has always come first for me, the combat is secondary. Realistically, I'm not sure I will achieve my goal of a PPL any time soon; certainly not in the next decade and then who knows what the general aviation industry will look like then? So MSFS + VR sure does look like a desirable way of getting part way to fulfilling the yearning and flying around some jaw dropping scenery with a bunch of mates off the interwebs sounds cool yeah?
