I'll have to go through the stuff from Lou and see what we can do.

TO ALL PILOTS - VICTORIES

Victories will have to be counted by each pilot according to this list:

1 -3 kills per sortie = 1 victory
4 - 6 kills per sortie = 2 victories
more than 6 per sortie = 3 victories

Please just count them accordingly, and then report the final number.
Thanks, all!


In case I get out of this BE, do I understand that we are using this formula for reporting victories?
Thanks

I didn't know about them. Please give the ranks. For the moment capture other German ranks and I will fix it later....

Remember that rank makes no difference to the points you get. Es macht nicht.


The German naval ranks in WOFF are, from lowest to highest: Flugmaat, Oberflugmaat, Flugmeister, Vizeflugmeister, Oberflugmeister, Leutnant zur See, Oberleutnant zur See.

Which one is the equivalent of 'Sergeant' in British ranks? I will not add on ranks lower than that even if they exist. That would be the DID Campaign starting rank.

What is the Naval Air Service called in German? And what is the German air arm called in German? I want to get the web pages as accurate as possible.

Oh, I have just checked and apparently Flugmaat is the equivalent of Sergeant Major.

Olham has decreed that German naval aviators start as Vizeflugmeister (see the first page of this thread), so that's what I've done.

The German naval air service is called Marineflieger.

Oh, I called it Kaiserliche Marine so maybe Kaiserliche Marineflieger is better?

I'm not sure about their official name. Marineflieger is the one that I've seen used most commonly. There's also Marinefliegerkrfte, but that seems to be less common.

The army aviation is easier. Before October 1916, they were known as Fliegertruppen, after that Luftstreitkrfte.

Well, it's complicated with Kaiserliche Marineflieger.

The aviators seemed to have been "Flieger des Marine-Corps Flandern".

Generally, the units were "Marine-Feldfliegerabteilungen".

The fighter-units were "Marine-Feldjagdstaffeln".

I spend too much time fly FSX too, no virtual airlines though, mostly just bush planes in the mountains.

Switching to light regional activity seems to have worked. First flight was recce, the N11 fighter escort from RNAS-3 kept the EIIIS off our arse. Second was bombing front lines, odd that there were clouds over target on an otherwise clear day. I was leader and flew over target 4 times, couldn't see what I supposed to bomb, then heard my 2 mates bombs whistling so I released my bombs too. Mine hit very close to theirs, but didn't destroy anything. A lone EIII was likely trailing us home, I saw flak from my airfield region when my boys were landing and I flying high above. I slowly dove in the Strutter, that is a plane to be very carefull in when diving, engaged and downed him with 3 bursts. He landed some hits on the initial head on, but not enough to save his butt.

It's a rainy morning here in IRL and I intend to fly one or two missions today. I'll submit reports after. Checked workshop settings, "enemy always engage" was not turned on. Main reason I'm using "B level" is for the ingame map and auto mixture, staying in the cockpit with Track IR.

TO ALL PILOTS

Please make your sories for today, if you have the time, and then send your
records via Jim_Attrill's form this evening. I will then make a new chart tomorrow.

Seems some have reported unclear data to Jim.
If a pilot falls, you need to report his final data on that day;
and you can only start a new pilot the next day (or later).

So all who had a fallne pilot after the last chart:
pls report the final data (sorties; hours; victories) here, if you still have them.

The first DID pilot has switched to a fighter squadron. RAF_Louvert is now in 24 Squadron - an elite bunch of aces. My records show he had 5.15 hours with 15 RFC before transferring which is perfectly within the rules.

.

At the moment Sgt Burroughs may be wishing he'd stayed with 15 Squadron as his first mission yesterday after the seemingly endless rain-outs had him leading an escort of five Quirks across the mud to bomb an enemy aerodrome. As they were returning he and his wingman had to battle a trio of Einies, and while they were successful in protecting the B/R buses young Artemus was forced down with a dud engine and landed on the bad side of the mud. He is currently a guest of the Kaiser but is crafting a most clever plan and his escape is imminent, (he'll be back in camp by Thursday).

Fly smart everyone!

That's nothing! biggrin

I joined MFFA 2 yesterday and have flown two missions. Out of the original six Aviatiks and twelve pilots and observers of the Abteilung, I'm the only one left now. All the others have been shot down.

The unit has been grounded until June 21, when we should have enough new planes and pilots to carry on with the madness.

Like my flight of 5 FE2b's of which four were shot down and I crashed trying to get away!

Hasse, please capture your data for use in the latest chart. I have nothing for you so far.

My morning sortie was recce. Jake was leading our B-flight of 4, 5 planes from A-flight sent to assist, and 2 DH2s from RFC-32 to escort. I flew above and slightly behind the other 3 planes in "B" for the standard WOFF form-up and we headed out to meet the DH2s. No clue were the guys in "A" are. Before running into the DH2s I see all 3 "B" guys make a sharp left turn and descend. I hear a Vickers and an EIII machine gun going off but can't see the EIII. Now I hear his engine, now I see him. I don't join the DF, just oserve from above. After a few minutes the EIII goes down and I continue to follow my "B" flight, but we seem to be heading away from the recce area assigned to us.

Yes, we are heading the wrong way. Where is Jake taking us, and why? Soon I see the channel, then an enemy airfield, then black flak smoke. B-flight buzzed around there for about 10 minutes. I neither saw or heard enemy planes or any signs of arial combat. We change direction and head in the general direction of our recce zone. Instead of the required 23 minutes over the zone we spent maybe 5 minutes there before heading in the direction of home. I can now hear the engines of DH2s, ok now a visual, above and behind me. Good, my six is watched. Near home they left, ok there is our airfield, and A-flight too. I wonder where they spent the morning sortie. Looks like A-flight has dibs on the pecking order of landing, I'll just circle above until all are down. Thats long enough, put the Strutter into a controlled left hand flat spin and descend. I see that Tony Pillings was filed a claim in the afterflight details.

Could you guys help me out with something?
I see no difference in using dots and using no labels at all.

A screenshot showing the difference would be great.

Hey MudWasp, they are not super obvious if you are not looking for them. Here's a shot:

You can see the dot in the upper center of my cockpit (an unfortunate side effect is that they show through the plane. Against light backgrounds, you really can't see them that well.

Hope that helps!

Dawn: Recon in Force to Loos. The Sqn put up 8 BE 2's . We Got hit by Fokkers that were above us. I went wide to make an end run . It didn't work a e/a dropped on our six, I did a Blue Max and dove to ground level weaving among trees on our side of the lines. May have got a Victory. The Fokker took a header into the dirt. We put in a claim, but Archie may have got it. Score: 2 a/c missing and 3 light damage including mine landed at Friendly Aerodrome.

1521 hrs, Bombing mission to Ypres: B Flight 5 patched up a/c + 5 Bristol's Scouts as escort. Scouts engaged 6 Fokkers over target area. They kept the e/a off our backs as we completed bombing run. Some bombs did hit then
everyman for himself and headed home. Footnote, I did spot a E III spinning may have been out of control over N.M.L.
