Storm of War - London Raids - Sunday the 14th of December

Post  MJDixon on Fri Dec 12, 2014 12:05 pm

Was browing Cliffs of Dover stuff and came across this thread and was wondering if anyone would be up for more Cliffs of Dover on Sunday?

Here's a copy of what's in the thread:

If there is enough interest, we can put "London Raids" up at 1830GMT this Sunday.

We were going to take a break until the new year, but we are getting some good momentum now.

I will not have time to make a specific new mission before the weekend, so I hope people are happy if we use one from the regular rotation.

I will also talk to Reddog, maybe we can "test" how the server runs with the SKIN-downloads turned on.
I'm sure JG4 will be happy with this

It's on the Storm of War Public Server, so I presume it's a drop in thing and everyone is welcome, here's an overview of the 'London Raids' scenario:

Type: Semi historical
A recreation of the Luftwaffe Bombing effort in Kent and Southeast London in the mid-to-latter stages of the Battle of Britain. Waves of marauding bomber formations intent on decimating England's ability to defend herself. Multiple high value bombing targets make for intense attack/defence situations.

AI aircraft play a significant role in this mission. LW Fighters should look to escort the AI raids. RAF fighters should aim to bring them down.

I reckon it'll be pretty good if it's as advertised, my main issue with the ATAG server is that it's alright for a 'random skirmishes in the English Channel - 1940' simulator, but you can't have the Battle of Britain without formations of German Bombers, be they players or AI (it's not as if a Human Bomber is likely to be more of a challenge to a player than an AI Bomber, compared to an Human 109 vs an AI 109 at least, infact AI are more likely to fly in historical formations rather than do lonewolf stuff.)

Also their Chain Home system seems to work more like it should:



The bit about skins gives me an excuse to make Squadron skins too!  Smile

Main issue is the slighly early start at 18:30 GMT, but I should be able to get there if we're up for it!

Rgr Hink, not sure how long the mission will run for though so I guess later might be ok.

The Chain Home system seems to work, I had a quick go on the Server and managed to find myself 4000 feet above a formation of 20+ Ju88s, shot down 2 then the game crashed. Razz

According to the Briefing for the mission last week the duration was 190 minutes, which - if it's the same this week, would mean the mission will run from 18:30 GMT to 21:30 GMT, I'll try to be there from 18:30 however (or earlier if there's a pre-flight briefing thing on their TS)

On the subject of TS, I imagine we'd use the Storm of War Server, these are the details I think:

18.30 is too early for me too. I'll try to get on before 20.00 if it's still going.

Righto Speedy, I've posted in their forum saying we usually fly at 20:00, so will see if they say how long the map lasts - I reckon it should be good fun though (famous last words. Razz )

Reply on their forum says the maximum mission length is 6 hours, but possibly 3 to 4 hours depending on how the mission pans out, either way that 21:30 hours minimum based on that, which should be enough to get one or two sorties in if we're all on for 8, (though I'm still planning on being on from the start.)

I'll be on their TeamSpeak channel for communications, details of which are posted above - or you can talk to me on Steam if run into trouble with TS.

Sounds good, Hink - see you there hopefully. Smile
