FORGOTTEN AVIATORS
The eastern front 1914 1917

For avoid confusion and to not spam the forum with 10 threads with the same title, I decided to post all the Russian campaigns of that serie here, the link below comprehend the Imperial Russian navy campaign 1st part, 1914 15 in the caucasus theater, and the new Galician campaign of 1915, first part of the Russian army trilogy.
Only the Grigorovich campaign will stay of his own since is much bigger than these ones, and deserve a stand own thread I guess. With descriptions etc etc,

PART I: IMPERIAL RUSSIAN NAVY CAMPAIGN - THE PERSIAN FRONT
And
IMPERIAL RUSSIAN AIR FLEET CAMPAIGN, THE BATTLE FOR GALICIA, 1915 IN THE LINK BELOW:
https://www.mediafire.com/file/01amhmz47q9bvsl/Russiaww1.rar/file

NOTE: this campaigns are only based on historical events. It do not pretend to be 100% historical

EDIT: For those playing the Galician campaign a suggest: in the last 5 missions, you will fly the farman f30, it is a very diverse machine than the Maurice Farman 11 short horn you flied in the early missions, it is faster, and it s conceived as a fighter too, it go easily over 120 130 km h sometime, so don't be afraid to engage enemy aviatiks, ofc do it cautious, don't attack like a bull since their rear gunners have a big fire angle, also up and down, find a dead zone in their visual where they can't shoot and attack. But don't be scared to have a slower plane etc as if you was with the old pre war farman. The F30 is a pretty good pusher fighter ground attacker. Enough fast too.

You' re welcome. The eastern front while is too over appreciated in stock Il2 and in waw section of bat, is totally underrated for the Ww1 campaigns. Like the Russian civil war in Europe and far east.
So I decided to create a aerie of campaigns both with the Russian navy and army, from central Asia to the Baltic and later also one or two Russian civil war white campaigns will come 1 in Europe and 1 in Mongolia or Siberia. Not the massive concentration of troops and machines we see in the western front campaigns but smaller groups like the one in the Caucasus with the Russian navy i did.

Looking really good! The Eastern Front was a very important part of WW1 and often forgotten. It is really great that someone is giving this part of the Great War a serious attention here in this wonderful flight sim of ours. Good luck with this Nero! 👍👍👍👍

Absolutely, here fuel, spare parts and actually FINDING your enemy are the major difficulties  :D

I'm really enjoying your Persian campaign atm

Keep up the good work !

Thank you guys. No, I have only 4 planes: aviatik, Albatros DII late, eindecker, pfalz eIII and another i don't remember. I ll need the Rumpler c IV (used massively on the
Turkish front. I could mount it but historically the Rumpler was really used everywhere almost by the Turkish. (well by the Germans.. There was only few Turkish pilots. I read 100.)

Are you playing the last version? (early version had some mistake. It s my first campaign, in that version I adjusted it for be what originally had to be, missions with Moranes and pushers
 Also the enemy was adjusted and in the second persian mission the airfield was a little bit "disordered" 😂 I adjusted all for that made a definitive version.
With this one in Galicia I learned to use the same map with the same airfield I made for several missions, only changing something, so is better and more realistic instead of restarting all, change the position of all, hangars, etc etc and loose double the time. This one is built better with more attention
There is also a mission with a Lebed, (a captured German or austro Hungarian plane, an aviatik in this case since it have the Russian skins.). But the most are with mf11 and Farman 30.
The next campaign will be with the Ilya muromets bomber since, luck, they have a bomb aiming system in the game (while the caproni and many others don't have. Pity, in the caproni campaign i had to let the ai drop bombs. It was accurate, very, but without aiming system half fun a gone.) in eastern poland/ucraine, i wanted to do also a seaplane campaign in the Baltic but I haven't so much choise with maps and plane. The ideal would be to use the grigorovich m-9 but his cockpit is messed up totally. Btw thank you for your support guys, this one will be better than my first one like I sad, promised 😀

Now I find some more ottoman skins especially for the Rumpler. Very good, over a good and working grigorovich M5 and M9 for the 2nd part of the Russian navy campaigns that will be on the seaplanes in the baltic in 1915 or 16

I am playing this and the setting is quite enjoyable  8)

However, I want to feedback something in terms of mission building.
I find your recon markers too small most of the time. When after one hour of flight I am not able to trigger the recon marker in several attempts, it is a bit of an immersion breaker...

And just as a heads up, you use a flag for Germany which was actually frowned upon, its colors forbidden in Imperial Germany. It's the flag of the Republic. There is an imperial static German flag available in BAT.
