Fortress Europe: Malta 1942




SCRAMBLE!

RAF Radar Stations have detected two large formations of bombers inbound to Malta! Radar has them at altitudes from 12-15K and estimates them arriving in about 45 minutes.

- Presumed targets are the Port of Valetta (P5) and the Northern Radar Strat (10.10.6)

ALLIED (RAF) ORDERS - Scramble from A6 in Spitfire Mk V or Hurricane Mk IIC - At T+30 A4 North Air spawn will open at 10.9.3. 

AXIS (LUFTWAFFE & REGIA AERONAUTICA) ORDERS - Launch from A11 in Bf 109F-4 or C202 - At T+30 A29 North Spawn will open at 10.11.9. Luftwaffe Bombers may take an AI bomber using the staged mission menu or PM Nefari to help place you in a bomber.

Flight will remain open till T+120.

Standard FSO Settings.

There must also be a flyable computer available for Nefarious to do FSO. So he doesn't keep talking about it for eight and a half hours on Friday night!

Why no Axis bombers?

Sorry, I forgot about them. Players may take a Bomber using the Staged Mission Menu or PM me for help placing you in.

I edited the post to reflect that.

No, they are unlimited lives for the duration.

I haven't really scored many of these. Really the event has everything for everyone. Bomber pilots can bomb and gun, dogfighters have unlimited lives and air spawns for quick action, and if you want to shoot down bombers there's plenty to go around. Pilots can check logs at ahevents.net afterwards.

You win by showing up for the FUN!

You have not seen these massive bomber formations in this game since we had 300 people in a scenario or FSO

Now with AI filling out the bomber ranks, the fun never ends...... well ok at the 120 min mark   :D   Actually it is over before that time usually.
