The problem is the valuation and the survey - when he enlists under "French",
he can probably not transfer to "USA" units - which is what he would want.

He would have to start a new carreer under "USA" with the same name -
but how can we add his final results from the Esc. Lafayette or another French
unit, to his new US data?

The only way might be for him, to stay with Esc. Laf. or any other French unit,
and we have him in the survey and chart as "American"- that would be easy.
Same as any Belgian pilot would have to be in a French unit.

Oh, I was talking about the real life scenario. If WOFF allows the transfer (which I doubt) he would have no problem with the survey.
SO.... to transfer from the French to the US he would have to fool WOFF a bit - take on another pilot with the same name as WOFF allows that and with the new nationality. Of course the hours and sorties of this new pilot would be zero to start.

He would have to keep track of the hours etc of the first pilot and add them himself to the hours of the second pilot and post those. The survey doesn't care about anything really - it just takes what you give it!

That would seem simple enough and the chart would still show the pilot's total hours and missions for his time in both services as well as his DID medals accrued. It would be nice if at some point in the future WOFF allows American pilots serving with French escadrilles to transfer to USAS squadrons when it is historically accurate for them to do so.

And they certainly can't transfer in August 1916 because there is nothing to transfer to!
April 1918 seems to be the date when their squadrons became operational.
So it'll have to wait until April 2016!

I believe in WOFF you can start with the 103rd Aero Squadron in mid-February of 1918 but yes Jim, there will be no transferring to, (or for that matter even beginning with), a USAS squadron until early to mid 2016. If there are any DID pilots who make it that long with the same virtual flyer they would deserve a transfer and pretty much anything else they ask for.

The following flyers have crossed the 25-hour-mark and receive the "DiD Campaign 25 Hours" medal:

Hasse, Carrick and Jim_Attrill

Congratulations, gentlemen!

Sergeant Anthony Agrayne will soon receive his Military Medal, as Lou already told me.

But we also mourn about the deaths of Bernd Guth and Carlton von Fisk.
Let their demise remind us to fly with even more awareness and care!
May they rest in peace!

EDIT: Chart corrected and posted new

Thx mates for all the concerns, about transferring tu a US unit......

First Things first, I would have to survive more than 1 and a half year in the war, what will be tricky enough.
IF I would do so, then I have absolutly no issues with enlisting in the US Air Service, and start with the Same Name, knowing what I have reached. But maybe Polovski has an idea how to do it, or he will implement it in an oncoming patch? He has plenty of time (1and a half year) to develop an idea. biggrin

By any means, it would be awesome for every pilot, regardless of his nationality, reaching this ultimate goal.

First question about this Training Thinge for french pilots, how to advance the traningsessions? No matter what I do, it does not finish the Mission.

Somehow I can not edit my previous post, so doubleposting,

I will enlist the names of the "valiant 38" , corresponding to the DID rules. I Hope, I will honour them.

Sorry to be a pain Olham and everyone else for interrupting,

but I think my original question got washed away somehow... anyways, I'd be interested to know why the mission mod type by Bletchley not part of the DiD?

Thanks for the 25 hour award and congrats to everybody else for getting them and other awards. I hope that my pilot lives long enough to get the next one. I have no intention of transferring to fighters any time soon. Somebody has to take care of the important business of supporting the ground troops while you fighter jockeys get all the glory. smile

I hope such an award does not shake the nerves of Albert Ward! I'm sure he will have to reach deep into his pocket and buy the rounds at the mess tonight! I hope the flight the next day is a quiet one.

Beautiful piece of work Lou! You are the man for the job!

Hasse, I am glad you carry on with the two-seaters - we may have few enough in the campaign,
once the better fighters appear.

Congratulations, Albert Ward - this might become an expensive evening for you!

Robert, your pilot entries for "rank" read "Sopwith Strutter 1 1/2" in the last two surveys,
that's why your rank was still wrong - corrected hereby.

CodeRed, the campaign is what it is - you could ask many questions, why this or that
is as it is, or why it's not there. Bletchley and others have certainly made great mods
and missions, but I wanted to keep it for all users as plain and simple as possible.
It is already complex enough as it is (see post #1).

Olham;

Thanks for correcting the rank on my pilot, but there was no need to make a special update, it would have been corrected the next time. Thanks for all your effort, it has to be a pain in the "xxx" maintaining it! Seeems the C.O. has censored this letter to you from the front! biggrin

Robert, when I can, I do the corrections soon; otherwise I make them with the next chart.
Your new rank plus the Croix de guerre was reason enough to do it immediately.
Well-ll - maybe the chances for some free drinkies in the mess this evening also accelerated me... biggrin
