Thursday June 15 - EVENT - 1900 UK time

Postby Admin (Philstyle) » Mon Jun 12, 2017 8:10 am

I'm going to put up another "storm of war" event mission this thursday, 15th June, in the evening.
We are expecting a DCS update on Wednesday that is supossed to provide some new assets units, possibly flak AND working B17 gunners.

The mission will approximately mimic the front line situation on June 15th 1944, as shown in this image below (which is from June 12th) prior to the battle for Caen.

The British tried to minimize the possibilities of retrenching the German forces by systematically bombarding the localities on and behind the front line. Thus, a line of towns and villages are attacked by Allied bombers, like Evrecy and Noyers-Bocage. Taking advantage of the devastating effects of the bombardments, the British armored units tried to break through the front in the direction of Villers-Bocage, but were once again repulsed by the German Tiger tanks.

On the American side, the strong advance recorded in the first days before the D-Day landings is now significantly slowed by a strong German resistance. The main objective of the Americans in the Cotentin is to capture the city of Cherbourg and its port in deep water; If the artificial ports of Arromanches and Saint-Laurent-sur-Mer are fully operational on 15 June, the unloading of equipment necessary for the war effort is considered insufficient in the long term by the Allied High Command. It is imperative to capture a deep-water port that will accommodate high-tonnage transport vessels. Thus, Cherbourg appears as the number one objective in the Cotentin Peninsula. But the Germans are aware of the allied problem and they understand from the beginning the strategic importance of this city and its port. The reinforcements of the defense of Cherbourg continue.

Slots will be limited to about 40 humans. 25 allied and 15 luftwaffe.
Spitfires and P51s for allies
FW190 and Bf109 for Luftwaffe.

Kick-off will be 1900 Hrs UK time - (2000 Hrs Central Europe time.)

Please indicate your squad's interest in this thread, including preference for aircraft type.

I might be around, probably in a Mustang or a Spit depending on the mission.

By the way, today's patch has been postponed:

https://forums.eagle.ru/showpost.php?p=3167849&postcount=28

We are hard working for DCS 2.1.1 update that should be contained many major bug fixes from initial 2.1.0 release, but we faced with some hard code issues that require more time then we expected earlier.

We are forced to postpone today's planned update due to its immaturity. We believe that it will be released at next week when the most of priority bugs will be fixed.
