IL_2 Cliffs of Dover / Storm of War / Thur. 12/8/16 PM

  Hey hey. Tonight it looks like its time for a little SoW! Triple points and triple the fun await. We have a full contingent of aircraft available at both Crepon and Liegescourt. I flew a 2 transport sorties Mon. eve- bringing in the 2 E3's I lost Sunday- ouch.
 Flew a third sortie with Badger- quickly found a large raid of Wellingtons near Calias-shot down two before getting hit hard- glided back to I think Calais Coquelle. The damaged airframe has ben repaired and guns recalibrated.
 Tonight- earlier than usual for me ( unless the wife has "plans" for me- in which case Ill be a bit later)- and join up on AKA SoW comms. Hope to see some of you there! And bring your battle face with- its going to be a blast-oh!

IL_2 Cliffs of Dover / Call to Arms! Sun . 12/4/15 SoW

 Storm of War- Ver.4.0 - will end in about 3 weeks. It has been a lot of fun- sometimes tough- and with some challenges. I think AKA has quietly made an impact- primarily in the outstanding juggernaut of a pilot- Jericho. Also- Knutsac has joined him in the very exclusive 50 missions / no deaths category- and made us all proud. That said- there are others who grind it out- and show up to make an impact- and really just to have fun.
 AKA has - as always- welcomed others to join in the fun- join our comms- and together- as a Luftwaffe team- fly and fight over the simulated English channel. I'm sure others have noted the leadership abilities of the excellent Wiley- Bucky - and er' uh'..well those guys-lol- who I see others squads drawn to. This makes for a stronger Luftwaffe - and the admins of the SoW can be found in our comms- imo wanting to fly with our small contingent of dedicated Cliffs pilots. WE don't always agree- be we generally always support each other- and follow the example that history holds to be true. Fly together, help your mates , don't leave anyone behind, and have a plan- if just a loose one. Also- fun and excitement is waiting - but generally after a longish sweep- or when you don't expect it.
 I believe it is out of respect for what the very capable admin Dietrich has done for this sim- that we support both him and SoW these last few weeks. I'm going to fly this Sunday- maybe this eve.- Sat. 12/3 - and midweek- where AKA has been absent for over a month.
I hope to see all available pilots online- representing both our outstanding squad- and our leadership team who has given their pers. time to this super fun sim- Cliffs. Until then...God speed.

Approx. mission time rally 1pm EST- some earlier- some later. Be advised that the server has been filling up- so earlier can be beneficial IMO - we should use SoW / AKA comms- as some of the 3/JG51 boys can be a bit stuffy about their tidy comms being ran by not just us- but others who follow AKA-/:^) Silence can be deadly- or extremely selfish and self serving.

IL_2 Cliffs of Dover / Wed. 10/19/16 SoW Rally Cry !
« on: October 17, 2016, 08:48:48 am »

 Hey fellas! Been busy with fall home projects-aka "getting buttoned down for a mid-west winter"  - and haven't been online for almost 2 wks. That said- this Wed. 10/19/16- we should try to muster a group and put 71st on notice that they don't run Wed. nights!
 In the past we - imo- have started a bit late- and should try to time the server so we got online right as it re-starts. This is prob. about 7:30- 8:30 pm EST. We can run out of Crepon- or the much closer to England Liegescourt. This can be determined on the spot- that night- based on current intel and pilots present.
 This is the time of SoW that often needs a little push- and a little effort to participate. AKA is putting up a very good showing- due in part to Jericho being a complete juggernaut - and to the overall winner attitude that permeates this squad. If we can put up 5- 6 pilots this Wed. we can maybe p/u 2-4 more associated pilots- and both sweep the Channel- and put up a force that can handle the often large flights of the 71st- and their cronies.
 Lets try to keep on eye on the SoW server- and try to time our arrival with its re-start- generally a bit earlier than we have been.
Good luck fellas- and heres to hoping we get good numbers Wed. - take-off and land together- and ultimately have a great time flying Cliffs of Dover- in the challenging skies of SoW. Be there or be square... ;)

PS: Also- a little earlier start also allows for a second sortie- which many times can be very fruitful- for kills and for recon flights!

Edit: Look's as if the server will restart at approx 6:30 pm EST...be advised!

IL_2 Cliffs of Dover / SoW Wed. 9/14/16 -Spec. Event

 Tonight SoW should be a bit busier and a bit more fun. A number of us are planning on getting together to fly at about 8-9 pm EST- give or take. Hope to see you guys in and flying. See the link to the SoW forum for the post regarding this.
 Lets try to give this phase a chance- as the last one ended abruptly amidst some BS. If everything isn't perfect- or you don't get your favorite plane, give it a go anyhow. Keep in mind Wiley is our advocate- and has both AKA's and SoW's interests in mind- so I say we give it the ol' AKA effort.
 That said - we are seeing far less action so far mid-week- which is a great time to get two-three bombers up with escort and  bomb their sh#t back to the stone age . Also a perfect time to recon targets- which also should be escorted.
 Heres to Phase 4.0- and here's to seeing AKA up this eve- or soon if you can make it!

 Yes Matte. Did make it. Launcher crash at 6.5 km - re-start- lost first persona.
RE-start - found friendly bomber group over England- engaged and hit a Hurricane attacking them- vectored our other 4 into them. Then 5 enemy fighters attacked us- I got hit in rad. glided for 8 min- then got finished off by a Hurricane- fire- bailed - captured.
Took off found another Hurricane near Cape Griz NEz with Wiley- killed him. Found another over the Tri-fields- Wiley and I killed him also. Landed at Liegescourt. Last sortie - climbed out over channel-sweep - found 5 enemy fighters above us at cons- engaged - hit one- fighters everywhere- rally at Bolougne- dove to help JG51 - hammered a Hurricane- he pulls up into me- collision- exploded. Done fro the day- exciting to say the least.
 Later in the day / night - ferried two E4's into Crepon to have 2 of those - and 1 E-1  / 1 E3 there. Hit the sack. Flying tonight - hope to see you guys online.

PS: That stats are wacked- both for mine and for others.  They are showing more deaths than actually happened- so AKA looks like we lost 9 pilots- we did not lose 9. Check your stats for 'Player Killed". Mine shows 3 when it was 1. Hope they can fix it.

 Hey fellas! Great to see the interest. Summer is always a down time- and I hope to see you guys soon! Flew a little bit with Wiley last week- basically found each other over the Channel at 7.5 km - game ended -lol - but was great to hear his voice and visit for a bit.
 When SoW ramps up- those with stick time in that crazy 109 may-and I mean may- have a chance against the experienced Spitfire pilots. Here's to practice - fun - and WWII aircraft love!
 See you guys - before you see me...hehe  ;)

 Hey guys- thinking about flying this eve in ATAG- about 9pm EST. Flying German side in order to get ready to fly for the Luftwaffe in the soon to be SoW online campaign.
 I have been flying German a little bit- and find stick time very important with dialing in the BF109 guns- with the different angles needed to land strikes as opposed to the wider patterns with the Allied birds.
 Hope to catch you guys online either tonight - Tues.- or Wed. - or both! We load up the Blue side- and climb to 7-8km! B/z banzai for the Limey's.... 8)

 No Bucky- I did not show her- but I have seen these fans in the past- and think they are very cool. The exhaust ports seem odd- but its a fan- so big deal.
 I could see putting one- or a few diff. ones- in a military based fun room. Gun lockers- and old and new maps in very nice frames throughout. Very cool fan- and Sully of course I was jabbing you a little bit- and think your posts at top of interesting and informative..hehe   8) 8

 "Cool" stuff! " ya..honey..I'm going to remove your classy Arts and Crafts motif ceiling fans throughout the house and put in my man-cave WW2 fighter hobby lobby Chinese fans." And after that ...move on to replacing our furniture with bar stools and boar heads. BTW- I ordered stadium seating for our family room and black lights for the bathroom. Wink.../:^)
 Maybe when I build my next home- I'll slap one of those bad-boy's up in the  pole-barn sh#tter to clear out the stank from my red-neck buddies tearing up the place. Its great to have a plan...thanks Sully for reminding me of all the cool sh#t I don't have.
