Lol \:\) Very true.

By the by, is the campaign in BoB2 easier to organise and run than the original? It's odd but I've never had any trouble running the MiG Alley campaign, but BoB1 has always befuddled me.

And what I want to try and do in BoB2 is to run the actual battle along as close to real occurrances as possible, using the day to day summaries provided by the Battle Of Britain Historical Society here:

That was an excellent AAR! Really enjoyed that. I've been slowly, and I mean very slowly getting into BOBWOV. This do to lack of time for gaming, being spring and great weather and all. In fact have not even started or looked at campaigns, still doing training missions and these AARs just make me want to move quicker in terms of getting into the experience of this sim. The only thing I'm worrried about is that if I start a campaign and really learn the depth of this sim, I'll be drawn in and "poof", there goes my summer outside. My wife would shake me up. \:D

Wow I completely want to get this sim after I have a system that can run it. What was the outcome of Raid 5?

A long time ago, I had an opportunity to command the Luftwaffe.

You can find my daily mission report HERE!

Its about 20 days worth of campaign.

Hey VonKhan,

Thanks for the comments.

Lets see, it was back in September when I did this ... 2006 ... I've since moved on to other things, but just recently started doing the research to reinstall and update on a new computer.

There are reports and logs that are generated by the game as you play it. Essentially what I did was to have a note pad with me at all times and started taking notes with regards to events, locations, and the like.

Most of my campaign, was run in 2D map mode as it got to be too much of a hassle trying to frag every incidence as more and more aircraft got into the action. Use the markers, take notes and double check the after action reports.

That's if I remember correctly. It was great fun, and only took 21 days (game time) to subdue the RAF. I ignored the convoys altogether, and went straight for the throat. Be a bit careful about attacking things like aircraft manufacturing facilities, it causes the AI to break them up and move them about making it harder to try to grind the production to a halt. Occasional bombing of a plant here and there for minimum or moderate damage can be gotten away with.

The real thing I did was to eliminate airfields that were useful. As more and more bases went down, the AI couldn't get repair teams to the fields fast enough, and as soon as one came back online, it was immediately targeted again.

Ah okay I see.

I've been doing really well with my campaign despite being a complete rookie. I tried to do everyhting the Germans didnt in the real BOB. Started with massive raids on the radar facilities over and over till they were completely destroyed beyond repair. Complete concentration of air power every time.

In mid August right now and pretty much everything below and around London is a red cross. They've stopped intercepting my raids even though they have 650 or so fighters. So Im roaming about knocking out everything at will... Kind of gotten boring, wondering when the campaign will end.

It'll end when the last of the airfields for 11 group go away.

Good luck.
