What Missions Would You Like to See?

Recommended Posts

I for a while have been experimenting with some of the standard missions we fly and changing some things out just to make them different and somewhat new. I tend to make multiple versions of missions I make, even with just slight differences, just to keep players guessing a little bit.

Last night I took the Raid On Mandalai mission we so love (Seafires, B-25, Beaufighters) and replaced them with an all different planeset; A-20, Mustang and P-38, just to see what would it would be like. I flew the Mustang and I was amazed at the difference. Considering I am not a tremendous pilot to begin with, and the Mustang is something I do not fly often or well, I did amazingly well, and enjoyed myself immensely to boot. Now part of the reason was no doubt that I resisted the temptation to fly like an idiot this time, but I think it was helped the fact that I was trying something different and did not fall into a familiar pattern. I think it went along the lines of a constant refrain in my head, "Mustang does NOT equal Seafire; Proceed Accordingly".

Anyway, my point in bringing it up is what are people's feelings on this? While I certainly like mixing things up a bit, I wonder if some people might not like mucking around with "classics" as it were. Whether its because people grow to love certain aspects of missions as they are, or they do not like making non-historical changes (like P-51's in the Pacific), some people might not be as keen on it. Also, certain mission authors might not like others messing with some aspects of a mission they worked hard on (I don't really care, as long as I am given credit for the original concept).

Any thoughts?

~S~ Chaps, All of those missions sound good to me (variety is the spice of life and all that ! lol).

I still have a desire to shoot down Heinkels and 109's in the summer of 1940 in my Spitfire because the bastards bombed the crap out of Portsmouth , (my home town) !!! :evil:

As far as the railway tunnel goes, I know NightCat from joint opps designed an obsticle stunt course around the Caan airfield which include several long low tunnels to fly through. Couldn't this be adapted to suit our needs ??

~S~ Painless

I'd go for a slice of Eastern front.

JU-87s were deployed to Stalingrad weren't they? I'm sure I seen them in the film 'Enemy at the gates.' That opening scene where those Russian conscripts get shipped in on landing craft and get straffed something wicked. Brutal!

But we can't trust Hollywood for accuracy can we, U-571 and all that crap.

~S~ All. Ol' taldrg(taildrag) here. Don't get to fly much with you m8s because I fly with my squad at 9 o'clock east coast time and can only get with you just once in a while. I have a question I hope someone can help me with. Our squad is on mission #17 of a 28 mission historic WW2 battle of Guadelcanal in the South Pacific. Our mission builders want now to build a campaign around history in Europe but they do not know too much about it. Do any of you have a mission or two that you could send me, along with a brief about it to help us out. I don't even know if this possible but, if so my address is

big wings of spits escorting a few bombers into France late 41 and into 42 to entice the germans up to fight.

usually ended quite badly for the RAF...

Sounds perfect for us then...
