Hey Hajo! :)    

Allied?     I was kind of leaning towards Axis as I beleive they'll be the under dog but to fly with people I know would certainly make the event more enjoyable.
Let me set up a new account (was not home this weekend to do that), get all registered and I'll email you?! :)

Thanks

I looked and looked Westy but I couldn't find the image of you falling out of your Tony from Cartwheel :)

Maybe they'll give ya an N Jug to go with your old D model from your ETO days.

Westy's Wagon II?

Thanks Dan    :)

Although since my CH gear doesn't work with XP (yet?) and I'm not comfortable with my X-45 set up this is what all of my flights end up looking like right at the moment....

This is going to be a fun event and prolly one of the biggest we have had yet.I am  already getting people too attend so the numbers should be up for the axis side.

The ASAAF will have 3 squadrons.  They will get a group of B24, P51 and P38.  These will be airspawned to represent the high alt bombing runs that would have occured.

As those flights land, they can re-airspawn for more runs.  Those That Die to being shot down or crash, will Re_Plane and Air Spawn the P47.

Effectively, if everyone in the USAAF groups die on the first mission, there would be 3 squadrons of P47s in the air for the next mission.

Not so bad afterall?

I don't plan on getting dead.:cool:
This is the first scenario that I have been in that mentioned Jugs from the getgo. I saw it as an opportunity to "represent" my choice A/C. Just a lil disappoited. I would like to see a choice given....Ponys or Jugs. I don't see that one has an advantage over the other....especially in this context, so I'm having a hard time understanding the whole "primary/secondary" deal.
I don't mean to come off as a b*tch, but I have been looking forward to flying my Jug since I first read the description a month ago.

LOL Dace, you aren't coming off negative at all.  There are people around that you could take lessons from, but you are far from it :rofl

I wanted 3 USAAF Squadrons, for design reasons, there was 3 popular fighters and a bomber need.  So rotated them in.

Bring ideas to your CO, and if he likes the idea he will bring it to the Design Team and we will make a decision.  Design changes are discussed with the people who built the event, the CMs staffing it and Both COs, changes are possible, but there may be more behind the decision than is clear at first.  Explanations could create or tip the hand to strategy, so they aren't always answered "out here"

I've been traveling and working on two houses so much lately I never saw this one pop up. I am going to register and try to make it with my VF-17 buds on this one.
