S! All,

 

 

We are getting things ready for the start of the Spring campaign. The Dry run will be at the usual time  on  6, May 2017 ( notice how I avoid screwing it all up by not putting in the wrong time). Hostilities start 13, May 2017 The Dry run will have extra planes and no death penalty. We will be flying in the region around Laon.  The Entente side has some nice hills and valleys. The area will be smaller than usual because we will be flying the very early planes. A practice map will be running on the JG1 server so people can see the area and practice missions. Kill the balloon at the 2 seater base to restart the server.

 

phase A

 

Entente   DH2 and FE2b

Central     E3     and Roland

 

 

phase B

 

Entente   N-17, a few N-11,  and RE8

Central    Halb D.II and Halb CL early

 

 

There was concern about the mission chains being too long, such as if you kill or prevent the spy or General mission, you block 3 points. Those two missions have been changed. You still bring the Spy or General back to friendly territory for 1 point and on the way they tell you to search a sector. When you search the sector a new target pops up. That is their second point. Since the planes doing these missions do not carry bombs, another plane with bombs is needed to kill the target.

 

The rescue mission gives 1 point when you get him home to a friendly airfield. After you land, he now tells you about a Reserve Unit target.

 

The front line Recon gives 1 point when you get the pictures home. After you land, it tells you the Trench Attack point target.

 

The HQ recon mission was left as a 3 point chain to create focus for action.

 

The Wreath Drop has been changed.  We were using the enemy 2 seater base as the place to drop the wreath.  Unfortunately the heavy AAA made this a 50/50 suicide run.

 

The idea to move the drop location was well received.  But where to move it to?  A hospital? Yes!  2 hospitals have been added to each side. Either hospital can be used for the wreath drop. There is only minor AAA by  the hospital. Hospitals are hard to find on the map as they will be a little red dot with the name hospital.

 

Actual hospital is a large building with a blue roof.   Always close to a village and very easy to spot.

Will there be any changes to the planning map in your post?  Never too early to get organized.
