    Battle for Schmidt

    This post is to the JG1 guys that flew American this past Sunday. I'd like to apologize for the lack of flak protection there. What happened was I moved that base from way North to Aachen to reduce flight time, and in my hurry, I placed flak there, but I did not test it out. The original mission had the American base.....off base with a scheduled attack on the German base, so I had standard flak protection for German base to make it realistic. I did not know who would fly American or OKL at that time...and I let Terref decide on that and he chose OKL. So, if it placed you guys in a bad situation I apologize, it was an oversight of trying to tweak these kinds of missions, based on the number of pilots that signup. As the numbers come in on the last day, it makes anything preplanned kind of difficult. Such as do we even fly PVP in the air, or just go with AI. We will switch the air combat side so you guys can fly Luftwaffe next time, I promise.... Neun

    Hello everyone! As you all know, WW1 aviation has long fascinated me. I believe the story of WW1 (and even more specifically, WW1 aviators) tends to be overshadowed by WW2 and doesn't get as much press as it deserves. I also enjoy reading/writing and now that I no longer have to write college papers (woo hoo! 😁), I occasionally get the itch to research something and write about it. That being the case, I present to you, "Climbing Higher" - my personal blog on all things WW1 aviation! Every so often, when I have the inclination and free time, I'll be posting articles about WW1 aviation to my personal blog (linked below): https://rookieace.wixsite.com/climbinghigher My first post is a book review of a rarer WW1 aviation memoir: "A German Airman Remembers" by Hans Schröder. To see my thoughts on this unique read, just click on the link below! https://rookieace.wixsite.com/climbinghigher/post/a-german-airman-remembers-book-review Subsequent posts: (Nov 15, 2020) Do or Die: No Parachute High in the Sky

    Whiskey Sundown

    If I remember correctly, BelSimTek (when they were still an independent company, and not attached to Eagle Dynamics) announced the Mi-24P and the AH-1G. The Mi-24P is supposed to come out later this year, so who knows about the status or future of the AH-1G. https://forums.eagle.ru/showpost.php?p=4156456&postcount=86 My guess is that the Cobra is on the deep backburner.

    Yup, the replacement process has been going on since about 2010. Most of the Zulu Cobras in Marine service today are converted Whiskeys, but about a quarter of all the airframes are newly built. Not sure if the USMC order is finished or still in progress. In other news, the state-run Polish Armaments Group recently signed a memorandum with Bell about potential collaboration in the Viper/Venom programme if the AH-1Z is selected as the replacement for our Mi-24Vs. I really hope we get a Cobra in DCS, the prospect of a full-on Iran-Iraq war reenactment is just too enticing.

    Today is a sad day in aviation - the classic "whomp, whomp, whomp" of two-bladed Cobras is no more, the Marine Corps retired the AH-1W today. https://news.bellflight.com/en-US/192399-united-states-marines-retire-bell-ah-1w-after-34-years-of-service
