IL-2 Sturmovik 1946 / Read 'em and weep, boys. Read 'em and weep!

Stats for Phase 1 are out and posted. Phase 2 will be against AI forces.


IL-2 Battle of Stalingrad / First AKA training mission on BOS
« on: March 02, 2019, 09:03:39 am »
My input on last night's mission follows:

We had at least a dozen pilots show for the first BOS mission using the AKA Expert server. The only thing missing was someone who was willing to step up and take control of the mission planning, so Taipan took the lead and led us on a few missions against allied targets. Having to step up on the moment was implemented extremely well and we stayed together to perform the mission with very little difficulty.
Methinks we need to have someone on each side (Allied and Axis) who is willing to come up with a mission plan and make it available here on the forum.
This week we flew Axis. Next Friday, we will fly Allied.
Anyone interested at trying their hand at mission planning against German targets?
Likewise, is anyone interested in being in charge for the Axis missions?
Each week we switch to the opposite side to gain experience with all the aircraft available.
In looking at the layout, it would be nice to have the leader of the upcoming mission to decide ahead of time what the mission target will be and plan accordingly. We had a mix of bombers and fighters covering and picked our targets at random as we flew towards enemy lines. This worked good, especially off the cuff. However, if one person on each side would take the lead, it could be so much the better. We could decide to take out an airfield or other strategic targets, and get in about 3 terrific missions on each fly-night.
The leader would have at least 1 whole week to plan their mission and after the first mission is in the tank, they will have two full weeks to plan their next.
The lack of icons was not the hinderance we feared. It would be nice to have more AI aircraft in the air so the cover force has something to do with their bullets and time.
Thanks, Taipan, I thought it went very well and I appreciated your stepping up to the challenge of running the first mission to give us all a sense of how this can work and personally, I had a great time with it.

We will be discussing the campaign results, opinions and plans going forward with this endeavor.
Due to the "circumstances" of what occurred during our campaign test, this should be a "MUST-ATTEND"
We look forward to all attending, including those who don't yet fly much BOS, as you will have the ability to add
your input and gain important information about the experiences we shared.

Looking forward to seeing you on TeamSpeak at 6:30 Wednesday.


I'll try to have them back up and running by evening.
Thanks for your patience.


Check out the video showing some of the enhancements in testing and training... PLUS, it has my niece sharing information about the system and how it improves our capabilities. She's the cutie Lt. Cmdr near the end of the video.

Go, Bryanna, Ma'am. S!


Merry Christmas everyone and have a safe New Year celebration.


IL_2 Cliffs of Dover / questions about German ammunition loadouts
« on: October 17, 2018, 04:11:49 pm »
When watching a utube video about ammunition loadouts for the German machine guns and cannons,  I've noticed that some of the weapons described and shown in the video do not match those that are available in my IL-2 COD Blitz version.

There are two or three cannons shown in the video that I do not have on my available list and at least one machine gun round.
Any ideas why there is this discrepancy?

IL-2 Sturmovik 1946 / Results from Korea Campaign flown some time back
« on: September 17, 2018, 10:10:33 am »

It has been brought to my attention that the results from our Korean Campaign did not get posted. This is due to one of two things: I likely neglected to post it and/or the website never got updated to reflect it. The prior is most likely the reason, so here the stats are for it. My apologies! And, a huge thank you to Big10, who rattled my cage to get this out. LOL
I appreciate you guys so very much!

Read 'em and weep, boys! Read 'em and weep!


Technical Help / CH Rudder pedals problem
« on: September 09, 2018, 11:43:33 am »
The CH pedals I user are about 8-10 years old. They seem to be losing their ability to stay on center, tracking wide right and left with little of no ability to stay in position while flying.
I strongly suspect they are just getting worn out, but thought I'd post something just in case it's a fixable issue.
Any one have similar problems and how did you correct it if so?


IL-2 Battle of Stalingrad / BOX Campaign teams to date
« on: September 06, 2018, 12:00:23 pm »
Teams (sides have been set, but may be added to as new pilots confirm their intent to participate. This list will be updated as needed by Goshawk.

Axis (Blue): Greywolf, Wolf, TG, Rage, MoGas, Big10, Agilehunter, MattE, Thrud, Dash, Clutter

Allied (Red): Goshawk, Jericho, Scorp, Relent, Taipan, Bucky, Recon, RedHerring, Hangten, Wayno, Skewer, TWC_Piranha, Merc, Gunfighter

So far, we have had limited attendance from some fliers on the Allied side, making the sides equal so far. If those who initially agreed to fly begin to show regular attendance in the campaign missions, an adjustment will be made.

As new pilots show up, they can elect whichever side they want unless/until the differences in numbers weigh more than 5 pilots for one side over the other. If that happens, someone or two may be asked to volunteer to fly the other side for the campaign duration.

Missions will be flown on Friday evenings in the same timeline as the previous IL-2 1946 campaigns, other than the kickoff mission on 9/7/18, which may begin earlier, at approximately 4:45 Pacific. Typical start times (all Pacific Time Zone) will be 5:00 for briefing, 5:30 for mission start, unless otherwise posted.


General Discussion / BOS Campaign meeting
« on: September 04, 2018, 05:21:58 pm »
Based on the people that showed for the meeting, the BOS campaign will be flown on Fridays starting at 5:00 for briefing and mission at 5:30 Pacific.
All aircraft will need to be flown initially from the supply base. Destinations and mission assignments will be made by the commander at the beginning of the mission.
Any questions, please post them either here or on the BOS channel.


IL-2 Sturmovik 1946 / Read 'em and weep, boys! Okinawa Campaign results
« on: September 01, 2018, 03:33:59 pm »
Here they are. Enjoy, but if applicable, don't weep onto your keyboard.
Congrats to the Blue side for phase 2.


General Discussion / Possible new guy you might see on Teamspeak
« on: June 15, 2018, 10:48:01 am »
I received an inquiry from Nohands about our DCS activity, and he may be interested in joining  the squadron.
If you see him on TS, please welcome him and answer any questions he might have.
