Curious ??
« on: October 18, 2018, 02:48:27 PM »

Hello All,

This topic is primarily aimed at the "on-line" squadron campaign/mission builders. I'm one of the builders for my squadron (AH).

I'm curious as to what your mission briefings look like. You've built the mission for your squadron to fly in, are your missions fictitious or based on a historical instance?

Again, I'm just a bit curious as to what other campaign/missions builders out here are doing for their squadrons.

Here is an example, this is the mission our squadron will be flying next. We fly this campaign weekly. :)
____________________________________________________________________________________

Awesome turn-out for mission - 05, we had 21 pilots altogether !!!  Here is the next briefing to be flown on Tuesday - October 23rd.

"Philippine's Campaign - Leyte"
Mission - 06 - Battle for Samar & Taffy 3
Date: October 25th, 1944 (09:00 hrs)

After Action Report:

Good work on hitting the enemy task force. The group sank the enemy battleship Mushasi, the sister ship of the Yamato. The group also sank two destroyers.

In the early hours of this morning, our Navy engaged the enemy in what is now being called, "The Battle of Surigao Strait". The US Navy used six battleships, cruisers, and destroyers to decimate the enemy fleet. The enemy lost six ships altogether, including 3 destroyers, 2 cruisers, and a battleship (Fuso).

Our air group has been transferred to the Taffy battle group, and further assigned to Taffy 3 for this next operation.

Intelligence:

Good Morning Gentlemen ...

Welcome to Taffy 3 ... the force is comprised of 6 escort carriers, 4 destroyers, and 6 escort destroyers. Your air group has been assigned to the following ships: the USS KitKun Bay, the USS Princeton, and the USS San Jacinto.

We've received submarine reports of a large enemy battle group steaming from the San Bernardino Straight, north of Samar. The enemy force was reported to be turning south, heading in our direction. The enemy battle force is comprised of two battleships, one was identified as the Yamato, 2 cruisers, and 4 destroyers.

We've sent a emergency message to Adm. Halsey for assistance, however, the TF-38 battle group is too far out of range to help us. The last sighting of the enemy group was in grid BZ-37, pad 2. The heading at that time was 135 degrees at 20 knots. It's possible that enemy aircraft maybe enroute to attack our ships, however, we have nothing on radar at this time.

The Mission:

We are sending everything we have to locate and engage the enemy battle group. Search for the group, flying a approach starting at grid CA-36, pad 5, then turn and fly north-west to grid BZ-37, pad 2, on your map. After the group makes contact and completes your attacks on the enemy's ships ... proceed to land at Tacloban airfield, grid BW-31, pad 2.



The group will be overflying an enemy held airfield located in grid BY-35, pad 3, on Samar. Attack and strafe this airfield on the way to Tacloban.

Feel free to post a mission briefing of yours, I'm hoping to share ideas with others and learn a bit on how I can make the sim more enjoyable for those who fly in the campaigns I build.
