"Channel War III: Enemy Coast Ahead" Planned Context Spring, 1941 It's spring of 1941 and every day RAF sends more and more planes over France. Hoping to draw Luftwaffe into the air, small but heavily escorted groups of bombers fly strikes on strategic targets within French coast. Such missions are called "Circus". At the same time, slow but heavily armed Hurricane MkII fighter bombers fly low altidtude strafing missions on enemy airfields. This battle of attrition will decide the future balance of the air war in the West. Planned Date Saturday, March 15th Somewhere from 19:00 to 21:00 GMT (Couldn't find the time Stec chose.. ) General Rules Map Big BoB I think WBTRN002.trn, or something like that Target RAF bombers and fighter-bombers will target airfields: f14, f15, f16, f18. Luftwaffe must defend! Scoring: fighter: 3pts bomber: 5pts ground structure destroyed on target airfield: 1pt closed target airfield (once per scenario for each airfield): bonus 20 points. General rules for all players: - You fly only as a member of a squadron you were assigned to and obey all orders you may receive from your Squadron Leader. - You can fly only in a plane and only from an airfield your squadron was assigned to. - You can take off only with the rest of your squadron, unauthorised take offs are forbidden under threat of kicking you from arena - After you have landed or crashed you must wait in tower. After your Squadron Leader ordered take off you must go on the runway as fast as possible. - Number of lives is unlimited (only limitation is that squadrons can take off only as a whole, so all pilots must be landed for squadron to fly a new mission.) Take off procedures (for Squadron Leaders): Your squadron can only take off when all pilots are on the runway, so you must always wait for the last pilot to return from his mission. Your squadron can only operate from 1 airfield it was assigned to before scenario. All the time during scenario take offs on all fields will be suspended. After all your pilots returned to base and are waiting in tower you may decide to fly another mission. You contact your TA admin and ask him to grant you clearance for take off. Admins enables take offs on your field for about 20-30 seconds and during that time all your pilots must be otr and you are cleared to fly a mission.

Even though it is a serious one, we are still prone to bugs and mistakes. Be patient! Oh, and I will be away until Wednesday. So make your questions to Stec - the creator of this current scenario. Many thanks to all involved! Campaign If this scenario plays fine it could be a part of a ~6-frame campaign called "Channel War": I - Dunkirk 1940 II - Fall 1940. Battle of Britain, target: London III - Spring 1941. Enemy Coast Ahead. IV - Summer 1942. Operation Jubilee. V - summer 1943. Clearing the Way for the 8th AF VI - spring 1944. Operation Overlord. These scenarios would be connected: pilots would keep their streaks for next frames, most effective squadrons would receive best planes in next scenario, etc. So take care of your life, comrades, and equipment! Maybe i forgot something... Oh anyway - When the registration site is ready, registration will be open. This thread is mostly for you to start deciding what you prefer: LW? RAF? Plane? Role? Want to be CO? SL (Squad Leader)? Regular pilot? Do you agree with the rules? And of course... Areeee yoooouuuu reaaaaadyyyyyy????
