Hi Tai,

With Limited flying time looming I can fly with the AI.

Well, if the Finnish/Soviet campaign is the winner, there are two choices I would think:
- Winter war (1939/1940), Finland vs Soviet Union
- Continuation war (1941-1944), Finland w/German assistance vs Soviet Union

An early war would be a kick I suppose :).  Would probably not have many tanks on the Finnish side, and only early crappy light tanks on the Soviet side.  Mostly soft vehicles.

I like snow and early plane models.

Some of the earlier maps may suffer from lack of detail. Hopefully this is not the case. :)

 8)So you want to fly the Brewster Buffalo? Cruises at 160 mph, max speed about 300mph. 2 to 4 .50's, bombs? Still it did well against the old Russian aircraft before 1939.White is boring after a couple of flights! That's what you get in the early war. In the "continuation" war you get German planes , Bf 109's.

10 votes so far - we have had 16 pilots flying this campaign, so 6 more participants should vote to get this wrapped up :)

Salute Gents,
If you have not voted yet, please do so.
This will allow Rel time to develop the campaign and reduce the campaign down time.
More importantly inquiring minds want to know!
I am still looking for one or two names to fly with the AI next campaign.  If no one other than Jer is keen on it then I will fly on the AI side.
It would be better to rotate the squadron members though so we can share flying time with each other.

S!

Tai

So you can fly with Gos, I can volunteer to fly with Jer.  Plus that way the human side won't have to hear me rant and rave on comms, give them a break! :)

I'll go along with that, provided Rel is restricted to flying against enemy battleships and heavy moving tanks only. No fair for Rel shooting down any other planes, trucks, fuel storage devices, sheds, half-tracks, pilots in parachutes, AI planes, AAA guns, tankers, destroyers, cruisers carriers, or anything that does not stop out in the open without trees covering them. Otherwise, he can shoot any other target of appreciable value, not listed above, but he is only able to fly .30 cal gun-equipped biplanes with bombs no larger than 50 pounds. In addition, he can fly anywhere he wants provided it's within a 25 mile radius of his own airfield. Now that I think of it, this applies to Jer, too, since he's of equivalent savagery to those of us lesser qualified.
I'm sure that everyone else agrees with this common-sense restriction.

Let's get started!!!!

LOL, while I appreciate the ego-inflating qualities of this post, you way over-estimate me as a threat! :)
