    Default Playing online WWII

    Hello everyone

    About 6 months ago I started a online player group for World War I. Last week with the help of Teaticket, we ran a game of tripods. This week I am running a game of World war 2. To give it a try. If anyone wants to play this week we could use a few more players. Just send me a pm if you want to play or watch. I have a very limited number of spots for watching on the Zoom side and unlimited on the Youtube side.

    I generally open the zoom call at 6 pm est and try to get the YouTube feed up at 7 pm est.

    Hope to see you there. I will post the YouTube link for this game and any future game in this thread.

    Thanks

    Mike

    Well we had out weekly online game and this time WW II. Wasn't sure how the WW II version would work this way but it came out good. Had a good time trying to protect the Kates and Vals attacking the Yorktown. Lasted the whole game with 11 points of damage on my Zero. Others were shot up pretty good. Maike does a great job putting on these games and deserves all the thanks we heep on him. Thanks again

    Thanks for tuning in! With the schedule that we are trying to keep, we should get at least 1 WWII per month. I plan for 2 games now, just in case the first one is over very quickly. At the beginning of the year we have a series of games based on the Winter War (Finland vs Soviet Union) that should be ready and we may do several weeks in a row with WWII. If you miss a live game, you can always go back and watch the replay of the video. i keep them all on my YouTube channel so anyone can go back and watch what they want! The Next WWII is slated for November 18th. No games on Nov 11 and 25.

    The Winter War
    16.6 Swimming with Sharks

    Game Time January 20, 2022 at 7 pm est

    Fokker CXs were always high priority targets for the Soviets. If the spotters hung around too long in any sector, the Soviets were quick to scramble Fighters to go after them. The Fokker crews, however, were not easy targets.
    Using steep dives to the ground and dodging at tree top level, they more often escaped destruction than not. The Following Mission will test your survival skills.

    18 December 1939
    Soviet I-153s attacked the Fokker C.X Head on and missed. The I 153s did an Immelmann turn to attack again, making multiple passes before breaking off.

    16.8 Blinding Ivan's Guns

    Game Time January 27, 2022 at 7 pm est


    29 January 1940

    Soviet R-5 spotter biplanes were hard to catch. Soviet troops would radio or signal them at the first sign of approaching Finnish aircraft, allowing them to rapidly retreat back
    behind their lines. In addition , the Soviets would scramble nearby fighters to assist them. On 29 January, Lt Karhunem, Flt Mstr Turrkka and two others took out 2 R-5s directing
    Soviet artillery fire over the main defense line at Summa. Using clouds to mask their approach, they successfully bounced the spotters. Lt Karhunan and Flt Mstr Turrka flamed
    the first R-5, but the other pair only damaged the second. Turrka was able to catch and finish it off, after which, the Fokkers retreated before a reaction force of I-16s could
    intercept them.

    The Continuation War
    17.2 Sonny and Daddy


    3 July 1941 -- Recently promoted, Sgt. Lampi was on a local patrol with Flt. Mstr. Turkka when they spotted three I-153s on the deck below them. The eager Sgt. Lampi
    immediately dived on the enemy without clearance, only to discover that he had not yet turned on his gun sight or charged his guns. He tried to slow down to get time
    to cock the guns but overshot the enemy and all three got on his tail. Having bled his speed off, he could not shake them, nor could he dive away due to his low altitude.
    Things looked grim until he heard Turkka's voice on the radio: "Don't worry Sonny, Daddy is coming to help." Flt Mstr Turkka blew up the I-153 on Lampi's tail and
    damaged another. The third fled. Sgt. Lampi got scolded in debrief, but worse than that, ground radiomen had heard the call and the nicknames, "Sonny" and "Daddy" stuck
    with these two for the rest of the war.

    Last week the Robert ("Sonny") did a great job trying to fly away from the Soviets. While the results were not what the Finns wanted, the combat was good. After the first 3 missions the running score
    has the Soviets up 61 to 30. With 3 missions left in this campaign there is still plenty of time for the Finns to catch up!

    17.15 Finnish Gulls


    10 July 1941

    In the Winter War eight Polikarpov I-153s were captured after forced landings in Finland. During the Continuation War three more were captured and ten "war booty" I-153s purchased
    from Germany. In all, twenty-one I-153s were taken into FAF service, being used by LLv6 for maritime patrols and ground attacks. On 26 June 1941 a Finnish I-153 damaged an SB-2, the
    first documented engagement by a Finnish "Chaika" against Soviet Aircraft. On 10 July a Soviet I-153 and a MiG-3 attacked a two-plane patrol of Finnish I-153s, led by Lt Kallio, in the
    Hanko Area. In the ensuing dogfight, the Finnish leader was shot down and Killed.

    17.14 Brewster Epilogue


    2 April 1944

    The last kill to be scored by LLv 24 before the unit converted to the German Bf 109G fighters came when 2nd Lt. Lampi and 1st Lt. Savonen bounced
    two LaGG-3s. Lampi's target was seen to crash in the Gulf of Finland. With the arrival of the fast and powerful Messerschmitts, the heyday of the Brewster
    was over. LLv 26 would receive the surviving Brewsters and operate them until the end of the war gaining just 19 more kills for 10 losses to all causes.

    While this may be the last of the Winter War Campaign games we have several more mini campaigns in the works! We are planning a Spanish Civil War
    campaign, Black Sheep campaign, along with a return to the Great War!

    Boyington's Bastards
    Mission 1
    First Flight for Chennault


    After the Attack on Pearl Harbor, the American Volunteer Group moved all but one squadron into China. The
    last squadron was stationed at Rangoon for its defense. Boyington's First combat in Rangoon was at best a
    debacle. After being jumped a unit of Ki-27 Nates, the Pilots of the AVG failed to follow the teachings of
    Chennault, as a result they lost that engagement. Three days later 20 Ki-27s would again attack the Allied
    defenders. Boyington was one of the ten aircraft that engaged the Japanese. During the combat Boyington
    claims that he set his first Nate afire. While Boyington claims this as his Kill, he was never giving credit for it.

    Tune in and Find out how many Ki-27s survive or if the P-40s meet their end!

    The Boyington's Bastards Campaign is a 6 part interconnected group of missions that follow some of the exploits of Greg Boyington.

    Victory Points are awarded after each game and at the end of the campaign they will be totaled up to find out which team won.

    personally shot down two enemy fighters in the air.

    After taking a week off, we are going back at it with our Boyington's Bastards campaign. In the last mission Boyington (Dan) was able to rack up
    Several partial kills and a complete Kill to help the Tigers pull out a slim 22 to 20 Victory. And that brings the Campaign Totals to Team Boyington 52
    and Team Japan 33.

    This week we are continuing Boyington's journey to Leading Marine Corps Ace of World War II.

    Mission 3
    Strafing Chiang-Mai


    March 22, 1942
    Chennault choose the ten best pilots at Kunming to attack the bases at Chiang-Mai and Lamphun. Six Pilots from the Adam & Eves (Neale, Boyington,
    Bond, McGarry, Rector, and Bartling) would attack the Japanese AF headquarters in Southeast Asia. Four pilots from the Panda Bears (Newkirk, Lawlor,
    Geselbracht, and Keeton) would attack the Base at Lamphun. The results of these attacks, results vary depending on the source, fifteen enemy planes
    were burned, and the credit for the destroyed aircraft is shared equally, giving Vice Squadron Leader Boyington credit for destroying two and one half
    enemy aircraft. This brings Boyington's total to four and one half enemy planes; two of which were destroyed in aerial combat, and two and one half burned
    on the ground. Between 12 and 22 Japanese aircraft got off the ground to help defend the two air bases. (Reports vary to the actually number of aircraft
    that were able to lift off.)

    Boyington's Bastards Campaign
    Mission 4 Back to the Corps



    Gregory Boyington left the American Volunteer Group with a dishonorable discharge. After making his way
    back to the United States in July 1942, he managed to reenlist in the U.S. Marines at the rank of first lieutenant,
    the rank he’d resigned in August 1941. On November 24, he was bumped to the rank of major and in March 1943,
    he deployed as executive officer of VMF 122 from the West Coast to the Solomons. He was based at Espiritu Santo,
    initially flying squadron training, non combat missions. In April Boyington took over as the commanding officer. He
    lost that command on June 7, after breaking his leg in a drunken wrestling match. In July he was given command
    of VMF 112, which he commanded for three weeks in the rear area, with no combat missions.

    April 1943
    On a training flight members of VMF-122 cross paths with a squadron of Zeros.

    Boyington took his squadron to Munda on New Georgia in September 1943. On the 16th, the Black Sheep
    flew their first mission, a bomber escort to Ballale, a Japanese airfield on a small island about five miles
    southeast of Bougainville. The mission turned into a free-for-all as 40+ A6M Zeros descended on the bombers.
    Boyington downed a Zero for his squadron's first kill. He quickly added four more. Six other Black Sheep
    scored kills. It was an auspicious debut, marred only by the loss of one -214 pilot, Captain Robert T. Ewing.
