  5. Thanks for the suggestions everybody; but I have to say aviation educational and testing standards are putting a new meaning to "rigorous" I can for sure see where the wartime trend of taking previously rejected pilots, ground crew and flight crew comes from as demand increases for personell. This was more significant and exhaustive than my Auto Mechanics course and was considered "Long" for a dispatch certification course at 10 weeks of in-class days. I have a two week break, then my instructor is going to have a few in person sessions with me after he has time to put some feelers out and we'll be making me a new resume and taking a look at his recommended operations to apply for. I will update when next steps start.

    S! All Thanks for helping on Dry Run. Several problems were identified and corrected. A few other things were modified to use fewer complex triggers. It should run smoother.

    Timezone: UTC-6 (UTC-5 in winter) HOTAS: Virpil T-50CM3 and Constellation Alpha (pedals on order) Head Tracker: Tobii Eye Tracker 5 Sims currently flying...DCS only Discord and SRS equipped. System: win11, X570 motherboard, AMD Ryzen 7 3800x processor, 64GB DDR4 3200, m.2 NVME, Zotac GTX1080ti..due to be upgraded but refuse to pay current prices. I develop scenarios, write my own scripts, and have the technology to run my own server, if needed, on a separate machine equal to the one above with gigabit internet connection. Been flying sims since 1990. I was in JG11 (Herr Stampf's group) on Aces High for almost 10 years flying the 190 mostly. I am a retired air traffic controller and real world pilot. I also fly RC helicopters and jets. As far as DCs goes, I own most of the DCS modules. But I usually fly the Mi-8, Mi-24, L-39, Su-25, and MiG-29. I have the MiG-21 but have not flown it. I am eagerly awaiting the full module MiG-29 supposedly in development. As far as the squadron is concerned, I would like to fly with you guys to see if it's a good fit. I haven't flown much in the last few months. My controls need to be mapped for the jets as I have been flying the Mi-8 while developing my csar script. Anyway, hope to fly with you guys at some point. Zeagle

    Long time IL-2 player from Germany lookig for a new squadron to fly IL-2 BoX, RoF/FC and do TankCrew together. Yesterday I had the opportunity to fly with some of you guys from the european wing and I enjoyed it very much. So here is my application for joining the JG I Richthofen / JG 1 Oesau: What is your Timezone? CET / UTC+1 and currently CEST / UTC+2 Do you have a joystick or HOTAS? Yes, Thrustmaster Warthog with MFG Crosswind on Wheel Stand Pro Do you have TeamSpeak and Discord installed, as well as a working microphone? Discord and TeamSpeak are ready for use Do you have VR, TrackIR, or a FreeTrack system for view control? TrackIR5 What sims are you currently flying? IL-2 BoX (all modules), FC1 +2, Tank Crew, RoF How did you hear about JG1? at the official IL-2 BoX forum Is there anything else that you'd like us to know? In Il-2 BoX i´m a decent pilot, but in FC/RoF i´m kinda unexpierenced and in much need of lessons and practice.

  10. Welcome to the Flanders In Flames Online War! All new pilots will need to register for the FIF2021 Fall Campaign! All returning pilots will need to sign-in! This includes pilots from JG1 (the host squadron). Note: virtual-squadron commanders or representatives can mass-register their pilots! Note: please make sure to join FIF's Discord: https://discord.gg/HVmET2AmbZ . . . Please post the following information: Your In-Game Name: [if applicable] Your Squadron affiliation (with squadron website if possible): Your timezone: Your post within this thread is very important! It gives us a headcount for the event, as well as a clear idea as to who to give access to. After posting within this thread, please be patient. I will not post a complete list of who has been assigned to what team until we are closer to the event start date. Note: Blue Team and the Red Team are not affiliated with either in-game side. Rather, the Blue Team and the Red Team will often switch between Central and Entente, allowing everyone to fly all aircraft.

    S! All Getting ready for The event. Recent updates to fix the Damage Model in Flying Circus means we will try using FC for the event. While RoF offers more planes and maps, FC is seen as the future of WW I flight sims. Calendar will be posted soon. Expect a test run in two weeks. A sample mission is running on the JG1 server. Plane set is not set in stone at this time. Info will be updated very soon,, Please visit the sign up page if you want to participate.

  13. Given that the devs are looking for flight track footage of the wing shedding bug, I started a new thread on the Il-2 forum (see below): https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/74642-wing-shedding-flight-tracks-thread/ If you guys have any flight tracks showcasing this, please post them to that thread, with a short description of the action and timestamp. Thanks!

    The game is cheap.... it's the new VR Helmet, computer and collective/cyclic that are going to be ugly. I'm a prude, have to setup separate from the fixed wing sim.

  22. Here are Klaiber's, Hotlead's and my Pfalz DXII skins. This template has been somewhat troublesome. The overlays / weathering that Rap has included in the template seemed much too coarse to me. I wound up using parts of the ROF overlays, adjusting the opacity of others and shutting some off. I decided to go with a fairly fresh looking aircraft, as with the Fokker DVIII, since these were introduced very late in the war and the earliest ones would barely have had 4 months in service. Because of the weird overlays, none of the colors that we have been using previously for other aircraft will work on the DXII. They are all much too bright. If anyone else is skinning this plane I can provide the colors that I have come up with. Please review and let me know if further color correction is needed. I decided to use a brighter lozenge pattern similar to what I have used for other aircraft as I felt that the lozenge in the template was much too dark compared to what my research comes up with. This is, of course, subjective and I can alter the lozenge patterns if preferred. v_!_JG1_PfalzD12_Hotlead.dds v_!_JG1_PfalzD12_Klaiber.dds v_!_JG1_PfalzD12_Vonrd.dds

  29. FIF 2021 "Fall Campaign" Map: FIF 2021 "Fall Campaign" is a completely fictitious event with little historical precedent. The default map of the Arras sector within the IL-2: Flying Circus game is used. The combat area is centered around the city of Arras. This is a region that historically saw fierce fighting, specifically with the Battle of Arras (1914), the Battle of Arras (1917) and the Second Battle of the Somme component of 1918's Hundred Days Offensive. The plane-set is 1918. The Central Powers are in the East. The Entente Powers are in the West. Two-seater bases are underlined in yellow. Hospitals are underlined in green. The aerodromes for attack are underlined in blue. Not every icon on the map is a live target. Active targets for each side will be numbered, and will be announced as "live" during the session. There is no flak fence. Flak guns are stationed at the front to act as spotters, alerting you to the presence of enemy aircraft. The real danger when crossing to enemy lines are the machine guns, which run along the trenches and can reach approximately 5000 ft. Machine guns have been removed from active targets. All active targets will instead have one flak gun, with the exception being the factory target. Factory targets will have two flak guns. If there are any questions, please contact @Butzzell and @Klaiber. . . . "Odd" Map for Sessions: "Even" Map for Sessions:

    Oesau's last flight

    @Vonrd, I found a better version of the third photograph here: https://ww2db.com/image.php?image_id=9915 According to an anonymous correction, this 428th FS aircraft is from Advanced Landing Ground A-78 (now Florennes Air Base) in Florennes, Belgium. It's from the Winter of 1944/1945. Since Oesau died on 11 May 1944, we have to assume that markings shown above are not accurate to a Spring 1944 dogfight. I did, however, find this photograph: http://www.americanairmuseum.com/media/12713 This photograph is P-38J Lightnings of the 428th Fighter Squadron. The location is unknown, but probably Warmwell in Dorset. Since the aircraft don't have D-Day invasion stripes, it's probably a May 1944 shot. Which matches up with the May death of Oesau. F5-X is P-38J-15-LO, s/n 43-28280, nicknamed "Dirty Nellie". Personal a/c of 428th Squadron CO Captain Ernest Nuckols. This a/c lost to flak 27 December 1944 near Montleban, Belgium. The pilot, 2Lt. Carl W. Coale, was KIA (MACR 11468). F5-U is P-38J-10-LO, s/n 42-67458. Aircraft written off in a landing accident 21 October 1944 at airfield A-78 Florennes, Belgium. The pilot, 2Lt. John P. Gawler, was OK. F5-G is P-38J-10-LO, s/n 42-67820. Aircraft was shot down 13 October 1944 by Hauptman Adolf "Addi" Glunz, Kapitan of the 6th Staffel of JG26 near Much-Birrenbachshöhe, Germany. The pilot, 2Lt. Richard R. Holt, was KIA (MACR 9542). F5-L is P-38J-10-LO, s/n 42-67653. Aircraft shot down by flak 27 December 1944 near Joubieval, Belgium. The pilot, 2Lt. Lewis R. Blakeney, was taken POW (MACR 11469). Based on this, I think that there is a good chance the aircraft of Doyle, Jarvis, and Austin were green with white markings.

    Oesau's last flight

    @Vonrd - you can find the squadrons codes and markings here: https://www.worldwarphotos.info/usaaf-codes/ For the 428th FS, 474th FB, you're looking at: A black square on tail (sometimes white square with a darker paint scheme) Red on the engine cowling and/or nose A squadron letter code of F5 I looked for information on the three pilots, but can't seem to find their aircraft markings. I'll keep looking. However, here are three examples of 428th FS aicraft (just not the one's you're looking for). Click the links for more information on the aircraft: http://www.americanairmuseum.com/media/12331 http://www.americanairmuseum.com/media/12743 https://www.worldwarphotos.info/gallery/usa/aircrafts-2-3/p-38-lightning/p-38l-lightning-code-f5-w-of-the-428th-fs-474th-fg/

  41. ....yeah....D.XII wings are criminally weak. Magics, I think it was, tried to calculate average amount of hits taken before an aircraft went down in FC and it was something like 8 hits for the D.XII...real shame, because otherwise it's a great little plane. Hopefully one that will benefit from a future DM revision...

    Color standards for skins

    Gen had asked last night for JG1 color standards and I said I would send him a psd with the colors. I had thought that I had one made up but I can't seem to find among the myriad of files in my Skinning folders. I figure that my Fokker DVII psd might be best since it has the JG1 standard colors (as noted in this post): There are also non standard colors such as Klai's Pink and Snaggle's Navy colors which I am working on for him (which will, of course, be submitted for review before being inserted into the JG1 skin pack.) Here is the link (it's fairly large at about 500 MB): https://www.dropbox.com/s/atbwjc5mqrp76o5/FokkerD7F_Public this one.psd?dl=0

    The photo thread

    Since we already have designated threads for posting videos, book reviews and other things, I figured it'd be worthwhile to start one for historical pictures. Here's one I found today, it's a remastered photograph taken in 1991 at Babimost, Poland. Tactical 'staches galore!
