ILYA-MUROMETS-1.0
« on: April 17, 2021, 06:07:44 PM »

I've just uploaded the Russian Empire portion of a series of DOF campaigns. The player will be flying both kinds of Ilya Muromets bombers.It runs from 1915-1917. About half of the missions will be recconnisance. The rest will be bombing. You will come across hostile aircraft. You'll fly on the following maps: Carpathians, Poland_1939, Belarus_R, Belarus, NWEurope, Grecia_Africa_Jir, Estonia, Zakavkazye, and Bessarabia.

Snow doesn't prevent flying.




There are bombing targets too. Before.




And after.




Sometimes one meets the enemy.




Flying in summer is easier.

Thank you very much! Your campaigns are always interesting, and this is what I was missing in DOF!

You're welcome. I thought I'd do something totally original for the Russian Empire part in DOF. So, I made this campaign. Part two, which will be post war, will see him take part in the Polish Soviet war.

cheers

I welcome you warmly David from Poland. While creating a campaign from the Polish-Bolshevik War of 1920, please remember that it was one of the six most important wars in the history of mankind. American pilots fought on our side against the red destruction that wanted to take over all of Europe, with great sacrifice. This would be a topic for a campaign. Greetings and much health.

Yes, indeed. I did one in DBW, but never issued it. The Polish air force had flyers from the former Austro-Hungarian Empire too. Some of them would have been in opposing airforces during WWI. All Europeans should be grateful for the Poles stopping the Bolsheviks outside Warsaw.


cheers

Thanks very much David. This is one of the most beautiful of your works, (being a bomber/transport/seaplane player,  a multi engine or navy  machine player especially, I'm not good with fighters and being an old subsimmer I'm more propense to play on the strategic picture that on the tactic one, only I like ww1 fighters since they're manoucrability, but if I can I play ever big machines campaigns, indeed I'm converting the caproni campaign for dbw 1916 to bat dof, and creating other ww1 Italian bombers and recce campaign in Albania and elsewhere, (I created even 2 campaigns for waw with regia aeronautica about the long range raids against the British middle east, Egypt and Palestine, from Rhodes in 1940 41,recreating some historic raid of the Muti s gang from Gadurrà, on Sm82, sm79, cantz1007 and sm81 for night bombing this last since was obsolete by now, missions are in 2 maps ofc, the Dodecanese and the Middle East one, with realistic long range flights on trimotors, and there's even a couple of rescue missions with Mamma Aiuto, the Cantz501 and 506 seaplane of the sanitary service, while the last missions are from Foggia against Greece and Jugoslavia, and the last campaign is on the Djibouti map in Italian East Africa in 1940, caproni 133 bombers over Somaliland, imam ro37 for recce against Ethiopian insurgents, sm81 and sm79 for ship busting in Aden gulf and perim strait or nearby south, they use many randomizers and c&c tools, but I must play them to test before release, from my early not mature works I learned so much to do better campaigns only they're for players who like long flights of 3 hours circa, sometime a little bit more) so I like very much it, especially for the long range instrumental flight in some case. I will take inspiration from this and from the vampire zeppelin pack for my campaigns with the ilya muromets, zeppelin, and another with the Romanian farmans in the carpathians. Another campaign I like very much is the one on m4today with the b29 over Japan, without tc is up to 15 hours of flight. But ofc with tc I do 5 or 6 hours usually, max 7. Ofc I play these long range raids when I have time, it's really something I must preparing some evening with coffee, food, and drinks😂😂😅I don't like too short missions, of 15 minutes even, like some air defense campaigns, and I like realistic scale maps. But there is some fighter air defense campaign I like very much, the night fighting campaigns! Since I like to fly at night. And often the night fighters are multi engine and heavily armed. Sometime also fighter bomber but only with some plane. So thank you very much this and the zeppelin pack of vampire are, aside with the caproni campaign I'm creating are just what I m looking for to play DOF!

On April 21, 1919, Polish troops occupy Vilnius. The Entente countries leave Vilnius to Poland. In July 1919, a 70,000-strong Polish army arrived in Poland, which was created in France and formed largely from Poles who had left for the United States. In August 1919, the Poles capture Minsk. In April 1920, Poland entered into an alliance with the Ukrainian nationalist Petliura. And I must say that Petliura and a number of other characters act together with the Poles. So, on April 25, 1920, an attack was made on Soviet, Russian territory by these very forces, and already on May 7, 1920, the Poles captured Kiev. And the aggressor is Soviet Russia! You are just a genius)). Poland was the most aggressive of the newly emerged states and in 1918-1920 managed to fight with all its neighbors. Moreover, they were interested in the territory, and not in the struggle against Bolshevism.

21 апреля 1919 года польские войска занимают Вильнюс. Страны Антанты оставляют Вильнюс Польше. В июле 1919 года в Польшу прибывает 70-тысячная польская армия, которая была создана во Франции и сформирована в значительной степени из поляков, уехавших в свое время в Соединенные Штаты. В августе 1919 года поляки захватывают Минск. В апреле 1920 года Польша заключает союз с украинским националистом Петлюрой. И надо сказать, что Петлюра и ряд других персонажей действуют вместе с поляками. Так, 25 апреля 1920 года было совершено нападение на советскую, российскую территорию этими самыми силами, и уже 7 мая 1920 года поляки захватили Киев. А агрессор при этом Советская Россия! Вы просто гений)). Польша была самым агрессивным из вновь возникших государств и за 1918-1920 годы успело повоевать со всеми соседями. Причем их интересовали территории, а не борьба с большевизмом.
