    FIF 2020 "Spring Campaign" Objectives

    FIF 2020 "Spring Campaign" Objectives: FIF 2020 has a number of possible objectives, which are shared and/or divided up between the Central and Entente sides. During a mission night, each team should have 17 objective types available to them, sometimes with multiple target opportunities within each of those objective types. In order to confirm that they are in fact attacking an active target, pilots should verify a potential target against the in-game map. Flak emplacements will make any attempt to bomb objectives extremely difficult. Thus, bombing aircraft will need to be prepared to make several sorties to rearm and re-attack. This will undoubtedly increase the bomber's chance of getting intercepted by the enemy. Part of a team's strategy will be in prioritizing what objectives should be attempted within the two hour mission window available. A complete description of how to complete each objective can be found below. If there are any questions, please contact @Klaiber and @Butzzell. . . . Primary Central Objectives: Destroy moving Entente Targets [three waterway barges / ships] Destroy moving Entente Targets [three vehicle convoys] Rescue Prisoner Destroy Entente Supply Depot Destroy Entente Factory Destroy Entente Bridge Destroy Entente Aerodrome [target oil drums] Artillery Correction / Arty Spotting Entente HQ recon Strategic recon [pre-selected by High Command] Wreath drop [to honor enemy ace] Secondary Central Objectives: Destroy Entente HQ [HQ Recon secondary objective] Trench Attack [triggered by Entente forces] Front-line unit [Artillery Correction Secondary Objective] Entente HQ Recon secondary objective Destroy Reserve Unit [Prisoner Rescue secondary] Destroy Entente Tanks at Factory [Prisoner Rescue secondary] . . . Primary Entente Objectives: Destroy stationary Central Targets [three waterway barges / ships] Destroy moving Central Targets [three vehicle convoys] Rescue Prisoner Destroy Central Supply Depot Destroy Central Factory Destroy Central Bridge Destroy Central Aerodrome [target oil drums] Artillery Correction / Arty Spotting Central HQ recon Central Trench Map Wreath drop [to honor enemy ace] Secondary Entente Objectives: Destroy Central HQ [HQ Recon secondary objective] Central Trench Attack [Trench Map Secondary Objective] Front-line unit [Artillery Correction Secondary Objective] Central HQ Recon secondary objective Destroy Reserve Unit [Prisoner Rescue secondary] Destroy Central Tanks at Factory [Prisoner Rescue secondary]

    FiF Spring Campaign

    The latest patch for Flying Circus may not be perfect but is felt to be a step in the right direction. We would like to go ahead with a shortened version of Flanders in Flames 2020 Spring campaign. This will be a "Dry Run" on 30, May followed by just four weeks of combat, June 6th, 13th, 20th and 27th. Each team will have two weeks as Entente and two weeks as Central. Planes will be Dolphin, SE5a, Bristol, Alb DVa, Pfalz D3, Fokker D7 vanilla - no f- and Halb CL 2. While Flying Circus allows for many more "Live" targets, we found that in the last campaign that the large number of bombing targets removed the need to do many of the specialty missions. For this campaign we will return to a map with numbered targets. The game will announce which of the targets is "Live" for this session. Machine guns still line the trenches on each side but have been removed from targets. Targets have one flak gun except for factories which have two. No trains. Entente has three ships that are stationary and must be found. Central has three ships moving on rivers. Each side has three on road vehicle convoys. Last vehicle is a flak gun. Because of soggy ground the Spy mission and the General capture mission have been removed. The Prisoner Rescue mission is back. The time for the ambulance to go from the prison to the airfield has been reduced. Mission works exactly as in RoF. Landing at the enemy airfield to pick up the prisoner will not be seen as a capture by the game. The Prisoner now mentions an area that must be searched for a target. This is similar to the Spy and general Capture missions of the past. When Landing at a friendly base the Prisoner mission activates a Reserve Unit target. The Trench attack mission is still triggered by completing the Trench Map recon. The Trench attack mission has been changed. It has been moved closer to the middle of the mud. It represents a weakness in the Central front lines. It is now a broken city. There are several broken cities on the map with tracers all around them. You will have to make sure you are at the correct position. There are 7 Central MG posts next to buildings and 9 Entente MG posts around the city in a semi circle. The MG posts on both sides have a circle of crates around them for easier spotting so that you know you are at the correct target. Entente must destroy all 7 Central posts and Central must destroy all 9 Entente MG posts. The first team to complete their mission blocks the other team from completing the mission. Success 1, Failure 0. This is a change from our normal scoring system. Updated maps and info will be posted shortly.
