  1. 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
  2. Americans will have an airbase now at Aachen, which will reduce flight time to the battle. 707th Tank Brigade, will start off with all tankers, Judge will be Commander. After taking 116th Forward Base, Neun, Butzzell,General, and if numbers are good, Longwood, will switch to German MkIV's coming out of Schmidt. Butzzell will command the German Panzer Unit. Our mission will be to hold Schmidt at all cost. If we lose Schmidt, we will regroup into a reserve Zug that was a few km outside of town. We will attempt to retake Schmidt.American Airforce will be comprised of JG1 members with Thorns. Luftwaffe will be comprised of SCG with TeRReF as Leader. JG1 can appoint Leader for USAF. I was going to do separate briefings for air side, but it's simple. Targets of opportunity, with opposing objectives such as protecting your own airbases, the Train Depot at Heerlen, and possible German reinforcements coming from Durlen, and of course any artillery, and your tanks on the ground.
  3. Wittmann, if you join our website you can see our events page and I can give you a tag that will automatically invite you for events. www.simulatedcombatgroup.com but the server name will always start with SCG and the week for this one is “ami9” we will be on our team speak at: comms.simulatedcombatgroup.com pw “enjoy”. It would be great if you could fly luftwafffe....
  4. The invite is always there for your air combat members to come in and fly as OKL for our German side on this one and go up against SCG. Both air contingents will have ground attack missions and of course try and protect their tanks and ground assets. If that does happen, I would need your OKL leader name for the mission so I could brief him on German position in this one.
  5. The Americans have been bottled up in the Hurtgen Forest for weeks now and have worked their way to the eastern sections of the forest. Difficult terrain, both in dense timber and high hills has created a terrible situation for the Americans. Now they are poised for a push on the Village of Schmidt and some open country where their armor, artillery and air superiority can once again be brought into play. The Germans, well they have plugged the area with determined men and material, since the battle is being waged on German soil, it's now or never. Most know the war is all but over, but they are fighting for their families and buying time for the super weapons, or possibly the breakdown of the Allied Alliance with the Soviet Union. The big push into the Ardennes is being planned and the Americans will soon come to realize that this war is anything but finished. This battle will be conducted in late Autumn just before the snows that will soon blanket the area with impassable roads and record breaking freezing temperatures. The battle will begin with a consolidated American armor thrust deeper into the forest and hopefully secure a breakout into open terrain. The 707th Tank Brigade with their Sherman tanks will assault the forward base of the 116th Panzer Division. This base must be captured and will provide the Americans with fresh armor and supplies for their final push into Schmidt. After this objective has been met, 3 members will switch over to the German side and defend the Village of Schmidt. Objective number 2 will be to capture the Village of Schmidt. However, the Americans must hold this Village for the anticipated German counter attack which will come from a reserve Zug unit which was positioned outside of town a couple of kilometers or so away. Historically, the village was retaken by the Germans, so it's important for the 707th to hold on to the area for a victory. The Air Combat within this mission will hopefully draw enough participants to allow for a PVP battle. There will be air strike objectives in addition to ground support as the battle unfolds. It's important for our members and any other participants to signup in our Events section, in addition to any of our Tank N Spank buddies who would like to join us. Tank squads will be filled keeping JG1 members together whenever possible. In addition, I'd like to have 2 JG1 members with me, to go German when we make the switch, if at all possible. I will have this posted in the Events section soon. More to come.
  6. Back from Vacation, looking forward to Sunday's event.
  7. Sorry I couldn't make it, and I will not be there for next weeks as well..damn vacations! 😃 But we will do all we can to help promote this project. I hope more of our guys, as well as some of the community can join next weeks mission. The problem has always been getting people to commit to a specific time slot.
  8. I just wanted to let you guys know that there will not be a scheduled mission for our Combined Arms on our usual Sunday at 2:30 PM, September 20th, as I will be on vacation. So if you are still interested in hosting a test mission for your new tank concept, you could post the event in our event calendar for SCG members to sign up. I can give Buttzell, or GenMarkof007 the ability to list those events on our site events calendar as well. Just thinking how we can come together more on these kinds of issues. Neun
  9. Greetings JG1, just wanted to invite you guys to a mission. Sunday 2:30 PM Eastern Time This mission will be an attempt to recreate a defensive hold against an American attack on our perimeter located north of Aachen. Currently I'm designing the mission with the hopes that we would have enough air combat interest to allow for player vs player in the air, however in the event that is not possible the player element will be Luftwaffe only, assisting our panzers in holding the line and launching a counter attack. The battlefield area is limited in this one, so the flying would be fairly concentrated over a particular sector of the map. There will be flak to ward off ground attacks on artillery and entrenched locations, so the flying can get dicey in the combat area. Let me know if you have any interest in joining us so I can plan the mission around the numbers I might have to work with. More to come as I work on this one. I'll get back with you on the plane set, but I think we might go with Panther on the tanks, against AI Shermans, since the AI has been acting up on some of the other tank sets. If you guys prefer MkIVs let me know. It's just that they haven't been holding up very well. Thanks, Neun
  10. Thank you all for your kind words regarding CorZero. Life moves on, but damn in the process we really lose some great people along the way and we are really going to miss his friendly voice on our comms. Thanks again JG1

  12. Better know as the Second Battle of Aachen was an attempt by the Germans to retake the city of Aachen after it had fallen around mid October 1944. For purposes of our mission, we will be using the 506th Heavy Panzer Battalion to spearhead an assault NE of the city. We will be facing the 2nd Armored Division and the 745th Tank Battalion along with the 26th Infantry Division who will be positioned in a defensive posture and poised to hold at all cost. This is going to be a tough mission and make no mistake, the enemy AI in this mission can make you toast in a heartbeat. We will have our Luftwaffe overhead to deal with American fighters and Jabo aircraft. Those damn P47's will be out on the prowl. Positioned throughout the countryside will be plenty of American AT along with the long ranged 155mm field guns. In addition, our Luftwaffe will be ground pounding defensive positions in our path. And of course....there will be plenty of American armor to deal with as usual. We invite JG1 members to come on in for the fun, 8/30/20 at 1430 hrs, EST. You can either fly Luftwaffe or grab a Tiger or a Panther if you prefer. Our SCG unit will be using Tigers however, they last longer...and heck we are a Heavy Panzer Regiment. Our server always starts with SCG TS=comms.simulatedcombatgroup.com pw= enjoy We have SRS Radio working, but will not be using it for this event. Salute, Neun
  13. Sweet Betty Boop...Boop, they are really nice General. Thanks
  14. We really like having you guys in there, and remember there's always room in the skies above the battlefield as well. Our OKL had a tough time in there today with a low 700 meter ceiling and poor visibility and a lot of enemy aircraft and flak to contend with. What does Combined Arms offer for the air side of things, well our guys tell us that watching the ground combat from above is a hoot, and of course we love watching our air guys doing battle above and blowing up things on the ground. Anyway, just stopped into say hello.
