  14. S! Stigler, Looking at these screenshots, it confirms to me, that we could have a fast & ready action fighter group over our HQ and the enemy HQ! We don't need to do all of the official taxying and confirming on take off when we want a fast defending force over a very important target in a campaign! And remember, this is for this campaign and any online multiplayer servers... we don't need to be all at 5K when defending a specific target, most of the time, in WW2, you can also have a lower flights around 2 or 2.5K... you will have a better view of the low level actions and your target!!! Cheers, GenMarkof
  15. S! All, @EmerlistDavjack For those that would like to join up today... If you want the SCG Team Speak, just poke me in Discord, thanks! The event starts at 2 pm and end at 5 pm! The next battle for the Kuban region. Last time Germany gained ground once again and are now squeezing the Soviet forces around a small town in the north. The soviets will have to stop the german advance or are risking encirclement and total destruction of the entire north army. This will once again air and ground combat, only this time it will be concentrated around the town of Korenkovskaya. Here is the SCG Discord address: https://discord.gg/RpVFEmM Cheers, GenMarkof
  16. JG1_GenMarkof Pilot and Tank EST North America ps: what time do the mission start? thx
  17. S! Klaiber, All numbering are done from the setup section in-game. So each of the players can use the numbers they want on the 2 version GAZ-MM trucks! Cheers, GenMarkof ps: they might be added this Sunday on Hitman Multiplayer campaign server!
  18. S! All, here is the temporary link to download the GAZ-MM skins... even people that don't have the truck should download it, so that all tankers or pilots that will play online can see the same 'Custom' skins! Download link: https://we.tl/t-Lz9tpI8e6j - this is a temporary link - 7 days... it will be replace soon with a JG1 download link! Pretty easy to install... just unzip the data file, drop in the Main IL2 BOX folder and you are ready to view or use them! Cheers GenMarkof ps: for now, I won't use any Gray or more Yellow colors, so that the German version is not an easy target like the German tank skins. We are hoping that the German version of the truck will be available soon! To help the planes to identify it, I have added some emblems on the top of the trucks... and they are bigger! ---------- GAZ-MM German skins ---------- GAZ-MM Russian skins

  22. S! Klaiber, I will change the camo in the next few days... this version was done tonight in 15 minutes as a test... so that SCG_Neun and SCG_Hitmannn can verify if they can lock a custom skins in a multiplayer server,... if this works, then I will do a complete different skin for the German version of the Gaz-MM! Cheers, GenMarkof
  23. S! All, Until we get the Sd.Kfz. 10/5 Flak 38 (20mm) Vehicle Mounted Anti-Aircraft Gun... We are trying to see if we can use the GAZ-MM truck for multiplayer campaigns or missions with lock skins for the Germans and the Russians. These photos were taking after a 15 min test I did tonight... I will change the Russian camo so we can have a more distinct visual between the German and the Russian truck. ps: numbers are from IL2 game (edit by the player in the setup of the truck)! ------ Russian skins Cheers, GenMarkof ------------------------- About the GAZ-MM Russian truck! The GAZ-MM was a double-axle 1.5-ton truck used for both general purpose and specialized purposes by the Soviet Union during WWII. It was a licensed copy of the American built Ford-AA truck, albeit a simpler version with a more powerful motor than the original GAZ-AA truck. At the outbreak of WWII the Soviet Union had over 150,000 vehicles in use and by the end of it’s production run there were nearly 1 million vehicles built. During the war, several different versions of the GAZ-MM appeared, some with no doors, bumpers and some with no front brakes and only one headlight. These changes were made to keep production costs and time as simple as possible. It was a rugged truck and served the Soviet Union well during the war. The Soviet 25mm automatic air-defense gun M1940 or 72-K as it was known was designed for protecting infantry units from air attack. It was normally mounted on a four-wheeled carriage that could be towed by a truck or other vehicle. It had a slant range of up to 2.4km and could hit aerial targets up to 2km in altitude. The gun could also be used against ground targets and light vehicles if necessary. It was manned by a six-person crew and was an automatic weapon with rounds loaded from the top via a feeding mechanism. The 72-K saw extensive use by the Soviet Union’s armed forces for many years only being finally phased out in the 1960s. When loaded into the bed of a GAZ-MM truck it becomes a mobile AAA battery allowing you to protect an armored column, supply convoy, infantry unit or a stationary target like an airbase with accurate and deadly fire. Our GAZ-MM 72-K can be used in both single-player and multiplayer scenarios and it will include several custom-made missions to demonstrate its ability at knocking down enemy planes.
  24. S! All, I would like to congratulate (3) members of JG1 for fighting again over France (in Flying Circus), for the last 4 weekend in the J5 Spring Offensive - Operation Michael. It was a blast to share some great moments with JG1 pilots and many other squadrons pilots playing on the Entente side. Special congrats to: - JG1_Lee (mostly 2 seater in sectors B and C) - JG1_Hotlead (mostly fighter in different sectors) - JG1_GenMarkof (mostly fighter in sectors B and C) After some great aerial fights, here are a few overall numbers for this campaign: 706 planes downed 284 ground targets destroyed 750 hours flown 104 players 4 missions flown over 4 weeks with inconclusive results/objectives won 4 draws Central fails to persuade Entente to meet at the negotiating table America arrives on the shores of Europe ------------------ I want to thank Jasta 5 and @J5_Baeumer for organizing another great tournament. It was the 11th time we were dogfighting over France in April 1917 or 1918. I hope that Flying Circus Vol. II will bring more planes and elements for future WW1 campaigns. Cheers, GenMarkof
