Sgt JP leaves Kalach

All, Sergeant JP successfully completed his final assessment flight. There were absolutely no enemies to be seen, anywhere, but that's not JP's fault. I reckon the latest game update screwed up the triggers. Aaaaaanyway, he's a killer as he demonstrated on Tuesday so he's suitable for No1 as his par...

Re: Sgt JP arrives at Kalach

Bah I forgot to report that Sergeant JP got through his second assessment flight. He saw a couple of things, plenty of trees and managed to avoid getting hit by flak (that he didn't see) but generally has done well.

ps He's a killer so he'll probably be fit to join JG1. I mean No1.

Sgt JP arrives at Kalach

Well, Sgt JP arrived at Kalach with a smoking engine and with a long belly landing, but apart from that he completed his first assessment flight satisfactorily.

Sgt JP is another one of those folks from the Americas but I don't think his hose is as big as Skoop's.

Carry on

Sgt Skoop leaves Kalach

Gentlemen Sadly A/F 1 was broken but I have managed to use a number of midweek sessions to scrutinise Sgt. Skoop's all round flying ability and general suitability to be posted to a Tangmere squadron. I am pleased to belatedly announce that Sgt. Skoop has successfully completed OTU. The primary reas...

Re: IL-2 BoS Mission Building Guide

Re: Sgt Skoop arrives at Kalach

I am happy to say that Sgt. Taran successfully completed A/F4. Sgt Taran? I mean Sgt Skoop obviously. I wouldn't want anyone to get the idea that he rammed a He1.. oh no no no he didn't ram anything at all. Erm Anyway, he can't go in a schwarm with Charlie otherwise they'd never get a mission comple...

Re: Sgt Skoop arrives at Kalach

I'm pleased to report that Sgt. Skoop passed A/F 3 tonight. Formation flying was excellent (when he was in formation) and observation was good.

Lovely stuff.

Re: IL-2 BoS Mission Building Guide

Impressive, most impressive.

Can we link it on the main BOS forum, or would you be so good as to do that? Totally your decision of course.

I use the word "swivel" rather than "rotate". Maybe he's just polite?

Sgt Skoop arrives at Kalach

Gentlemen, Sgt Skoop today passed A/F1 with flying colours. Well actually A/F1 didn't work so we used A/F2 but you get the idea. Anyway, he's Californian and a firefighter so we'll have to keep BB away from him otherwise we'll end up with comments like "Oooh a man in uniform" and "Ooooh what a big h...

Re: Welcome Guests.

Hi

focus on IL2: Battle of Stalingrad for now as our experience that it is much easier to get running. Then play for a while then do the application.

Feel free to post questions etc, and congratulations on the grandchild!

Dickie is the only true Canadian we've got. We try not to talk about Hatter. Or Bunny. Especially Bunny.
