If you are going to allow the multiple choices to the Allied plane set you should do the same for the LW.

Allow the 190A8 or 190A5. Also allow the 109G6,G2, or F for the LW.

Also there were far more P51Bs than P51Ds at the time.

My 2 cents

I think it is fine, but the addition of an A-5 would not hurt anything.

Well, there were no 109G-2's or F-4's or their equivalents in France by 1944. On the hand, there were definitely some 190A-4's, A-5's, and A-6's.

The A-5 has been added in limited numbers.

No additional changes folks...

Gentlemen,

A note from the host...

This is a message to all squad leaders, CiCs and participants of FSO. First, I hope that everyone is safe and beginning to enjoy the holidays. Secondly, we all understand that the Aces High community, for whatever reasons, has suffered a high rate of player attrition. I am not here to discuss the fact, but here to let you know what adjustments are being made in this event to compensate a little.

CiC Duty

Some things you can expect for FSO in general are that there are currently less squads participating than in previous years, so you will find that CiC duties will come around much more frequently. Please expect to possibly experience this for the month of December when you see the listing of CiCs. You may possibly think to yourselves, "Hey, we just had the duty", and it is likely that you are correct. Please bare with us as we deal with the decrease in participating FSO squads.

Side Preferences

Yes, your squad's long term and monthly preferences are taken into account. But every now and then it will not be possible to provide your squad with they're request. If this occurs, I will apologize right now in advance. Your squad not receiving its preference is not an oversight more than it is a necessary adjustment to make the numbers work. Remember that it is part of the process to update your squad preferences in a timely fashion each month to include the number of pilots participating within your squad. This helps tremendously in ensuring that your preference can be met. If your request is still not met, we hope that there will be fun, excitement and new comrades developed if this occurs in reference to your preference.

Event Strategy

In this month's event as important as it has been in the past to shoot down and make score with enemy aircraft, that will not be the case in this event. Essentially, the Axis starts with a strong position to win the frame. It is up to the Allies to earn their way to victory and that will not include shooting down large numbers of enemy aircraft to edge out the opponent for the win. Please be mindful that this is an objectives based event similar to a base take in the MA minus GVs and an actual capture. If the goals and objectives are achieved, then there is victory, the absence of which is defeat. Those goals and objectives are clearly laid out in this month's write up under "Victory Conditions".

In Summary

  • You may be planning missions for your side again sooner than you thought.
  • Side preferences are considered, but event planned numbers must be maintained.
  • This month's FSO is a winner take all event frame by frame.

These necessary and minor modifications in process, procedures, and strategy should allow planned forces, of the sizes that have been posted within the event write up, to achieve success with planning and teamwork. That is the hope...

At the conclusion of each frame you will be able to immediately determine the winner.

Best of luck gentlemen and again, enjoy your holidays as well as this addition of the Aces High FSO.
