IL-2 Event: 3-21-2012
I'll be here to fly and will meet on Old Farts TS3 about 15 min prior to start time.
I also have a dogfight map. On it are two stationary aircraft carriers for each team. The start of the session requires each pilot to takeoff from their carrier, as well as after each death. Both sides also have a defensive screen of destroyers for anti-aircraft protection.
Though it's definitely not historically accurate, because of the dogfight session, the only way to have an aircraft carrier in a dogfight map is to have it stationary.
On the other hand, we can fly in cooperative mode, taking off from aircraft carriers, and I've found the solution to making the carriers move at their historical speed, set the speed for each waypoint to 56 kmph! This way, we can fly dive bombers and fighter bombers from the carriers to the enemy fleet's position. Some of the pilots will have to volunteer to fly air cover protection for the fleet instead of going on the bombing mission.
I look forward to flying tonight. And if anyone needs more than a day's notice, please let us know so we can get more participating for the next IL-2 event.
