    If you are referring to combat aircraft, the English word 'fighter' should be translated into the French word 'chasseur' (literally 'hunter').

    Roxanne-21,

    Thanks, my French is really rusty; I haven't had to use it on this level for some time; but it works wonders with the wife.

    I will make the necessary adjustments.

    In case you're keeping track, I'm up to 198 missions now. In ten days.

    Good morning,

    Still plugging away. I've been focusing a lot on scenery building, and have gotten some new bases to incorporate, which required some mission modifications.

    Among the new bases are Moorsele, Brustem, Beauvechain, Lure, Dijon, and Gaye.

    Some new missions as well...

    "title_string"=BoF Kampfgeschwader - Trouble above Thionville
    "summary_string"=Zuhören, Besatzungen! With our Panzers breaking through near Sedan, we will assist their effort by raiding French towns to the south and north of the breakthrough. Your Heinkels will raid the town of Thionville, just a bit north of Metz, and hopefully bait their fighters into the air, so we can keep the enemy busy and allow the Panzers to move without being harassed by enemy bombers and fighters!
    "objective_string"=This is an amalgam of two missions that took place on 14 and 15 May. On 14 May, French Hawks from GC II/5 shot down a pair of Bf-110s of I/ZG 52 over Thionville & damaged two more, whilst losing two of their own in the fight. A day later, He-111s from III/KG 55 shot down two P-36 Hawks above the village of Piennes, while avoiding any losses to themselves. The total number of aircraft involved in these missions is unknown.
    "intelligence_string"=Once airborne, fly west-northwest and climb up to 4,000 meters. As you near the target, you will use the village of Piennes as the starting point for the bombing run and assault Thionville from the west, so that after you release, you will be headed back into Germany. Bf-110s will be your escorts on this flight, so make sure to keep an eye out for enemy fighters that evade them. Make sure to place your bombs on target, and get back safely. Good luck!
    "player_aircraft_name_string"=GC_He111H6
    "airfield_string"=Germany - Eutingen

    "title_string"=BoF Jagdgeschwader - Rendezvous on the Rhine
    "summary_string"=Meine Herren, zuhören! Heinkel bombers have left bases in Bavaria and are raiding the key village of Vitry-le-Francois, where several key French roads converge. Your task is to meet them at the Rhine, escprt them to the target, and then make sure they return safely! Let's show enemy pilots a Zerstorer can still be a lethal machine when in the hands of the right pilot!
    "objective_string"=During the morning of 15 May, the Luftwaffe kept up their efforts in the area east & south of Reims, hitting airfields and strategic towns that could be used to slow the Axis advance. Late in the morning Heinkels of III/KG 51 raided the French village of Vitry-le-Francois, and were intercepted by RAF Hurricanes of 85 Squadron, based at Lille-Seclin. The Hurricanes brought down three bombers. The Bf-110s escorts in the mission are fictional.
    "intelligence_string"=After taking off, you will fly south-southwest and climb to 5,000m prior to reaching the rendezvous point. Once you reach these bombers, stay in front of them over the target area, and draw any enemy fighters away from the formation to allow them to drop accurately. If engaging any enemy fighters, avoid turning fights and focus on using your speed to initiate and break contact. Once these bombers turn back, stay with them as they fly to Germany. After they reach the Rhine, turn north-northeast & return to Wiesbaden.
    "player_aircraft_name_string"=TR_BF110_C
    "airfield_string"=Germany - Wiesbaden

    "title_string"=BoF Kampfgeschwader - Try to distract the French
    "summary_string"=Kameraden, herhören! In order to sustain pressure on the French Air Force, we must continue to raid their bases & force their fighters up into combat! To this end, your bombers will attack the airfield near Dijon, France. A squadron of enemy fighters are based here, & our raiding it will help distract the French from our major efforts further north. Let's show the French that we won't rest until we grind their Air Force into the ground!
    "objective_string"=On 14 May 1940, Junkers Ju-88s of I/KG 51 were intercepted by Moranes of GC III/6 over Longvic, near Dijon. A French MS-406 fighter was lost in the attack, but they did manage to shoot down two of the Ju-88s. Though not explicitly stated, it can be assumed that Luftwaffe bombers had targeted Dijon airfield, where a French fighter escadrille was stationed. Bf-110 escorts that are included in the mission are purely fictional, but are included to provide protection.
    "intelligence_string"=After getting airborne, form up & climb to 5,000m as you fly west-southwest over the Rhine and into France. You will pick up the escort before leaving Germany. Once in France, be prepared for enemy fighters as you approach the airfield just in case the escorts can't deal with them. When you attack the aerodrome, focus on fuel stores, ammo crates, and aircraft hangars. Once your raid is complete, clear the airfield and the city, and then return to Germany. Make sure to place your bombs on target and return safely; we need to keep these bombers intact to support the offensive further north!
    "player_aircraft_name_string"=KM_JU88_A-4 I/KG 30
    "airfield_string"=Germany - Schongau

    Good morning,

    Here are some more new missions...

    "title_string"=BoF Jagdgeschwader - Lending cover to Panzers
    "summary_string"=Aufgepasst, kameraden! Do-17 bombers are now on their way to hit bases northwest of Reims, and you will escort a part of this force as they attack the airfield at Laon. This is an important fighter base for the French, and forcing the enemy to evacuate these bases will reduce their interference against our ground advance!
    "objective_string"=This is a semi-historical amalgam of sorties by 73 and 501 Sqns on 11 and 15 May, 1940 in the Reims area. In each case, fighters from these two Sqns tried to intercept Dornier bombers passing to the northwest, southwest, or southeast of the city on their way to or from targets. Four Dorniers were claimed. The target chosen for the mission is Laon airfield, northwest of Reims. My use of escorts in the mission, especially 109s, is entirely fictional, but done to give somewhat of a different twist in the mission than the usual Zerstorers which would escort the bombers.
    "intelligence_string"=After getting airborne, you'll fly west-southwest and climb to meet up with the Do-17s before they reach France. As these Dornier bombers near Laon aerodrome, be ready for aggressive intercepts by either French or British fighters, and try to draw them away from the bombers. After these bombers release, stay with them as they clear the area and return to Germany. French forces are starting to collapse, and we do not want to lose resources at this crucial time, so keep the bombers safe!
    "player_aircraft_name_string"=AH_BF109ECFS2_JG26_H ugo_Witt
    "airfield_string"=Germany - Wiesbaden-Erbenheim

    "title_string"=BoF Kampfgeschwader - The offensive has begun!
    "summary_string"=Männer, herhören! The great offensive in the west has begun, & you are part of the initial force that will raid airfields in France. Your Ju-88s will hit the airfield at Reims, & destroy aircraft hangars, fuel stores, ammunition crates, & parked aircraft, trying to keep the enemy on the ground. Let's show the British and French that they cannot resist our might!
    "objective_string"=German forces began the attack on France and the Low Countries by bombing & then strafing French, Dutch, and Belgian airfields literally beginning at or just prior to first light. Your Junkers of KG 51 will be among the lead attack units; your target is the French aerodrome near Reims. During the raid, there were no reports of any intercepts by British or French fighters, nor airframe damage from any anti-aircraft fire. All the bombers appear to have returned safely. Any damage to the airfield is not known.
    "intelligence_string"=After you depart Schongau, you'll climb to 3,000 meters, and head west-northwest into France. We hope you will be able to reach Reims near dawn in order to attack before the enemy sends out early morning fighter sweeps. At Reims airfield, focus on hitting aircraft hangars, fuel stores, and ammo crates, then reverse course & make your way back to Germany. It will be a busy day ahead, so make sure to get all your bombers back intact, we can't afford to lose our ability to overwhelm the enemy!
    "player_aircraft_name_string"=KM_JU88_A-4 I/KG 30
    "airfield_string"=Germany - Schongau

    "title_string"=Battle of France - Hunt 'round Reims for the Luftwaffe
    "summary_string"=Pour vos chasseurs! Enemy aircraft have been seen over the sector near Reims, and your fighters will patrol an area north and west of the city, looking for any Luftwaffe bombers or fighters. If you do find the Germans, engage 'em and show the enemy that we are not a defeated force; we have plenty of fight left & will take them on to the very end!
    "objective_string"=This mission is an amalgam of two sorties flown by GC II/4 on the afternoon of 16 May. On the first patrol, the French ran into Dorniers of KG 2 north of Reims, damaging two. During the second patrol, they brought down two Bf-110s of III/ZG 26 just east of Fismes. For the initial patrol, the airfield of Berry-au-Bac is proposed to be the target, but this cannot be confirmed. No reports of damage to the French fighters can be found, so it's likely all fighters returned intact from the two encounters.
    "intelligence_string"=Once in the air, head northwest & sweep the Reims area from just northeast to northwest of the city, looking for enemy bombers or fighters. If you run into either one, engage them if combat conditions are favorable. Your flight will patrol the sector at 4.500m. If another flight of Hawks are available, they'll patrol 500m below you. After you exhaust your ammo, break off and return to Vassincourt to refuel and reload. Bonne chance!

    Good morning,

    Now that the semester is winding down, I have some more time to continue on this project...

    "title_string"=BoF Kampfgeschwader - KG 51 raids the railyards
    "summary_string"=Kamerad, herhören! Kampfgeschwader 51 has been given the task of attacking rail targets in the area east of Reims. If we release all bombs accurately, this will slow the ability of the French and British to resupply their forces to the north & west. Let's show the enemy our resolve to push on to victory!
    "objective_string"=During the afternoon of 14 May 1940, bombers of KG 51 fought off attacks by Dewoitine D-520s of GC I/3, heavily damaging two. Two Heinkels were damaged, and one was lost. A Ju-88 from this unit was also damaged. All bombers from this unit were assigned to pound rail targets at Aubreville, Metz, & Revigny. Aside from the bombers mentioned, it's assumed that all other bombers of KG 51 returned safely. All escorts in the mission are fictional, but provided for your protection.
    "intelligence_string"=After taking off, you'll rendezvous with the other bombers and fly west-northwest toward the target area. At a point southwest of Metz, the formation will split; you'll hit Metz, while the other bomber flights will raid Aubreville and Revigny. After you release on Metz, you'll fly east-southeast toward Schongau, and the rest of the formation will catch up with you as you return to Germany. Your height for this bomb run will be 4,500 meters. Good luck!
    "player_aircraft_name_string"=GC_He111H6
    "airfield_string"=Germany - Schongau

    "title_string"=BoF Kampfgeschwader - Exposed above Auxonne
    "summary_string"=Aufgepasst, kameraden! The village of Auxonne is a vitally important cog in French military weapons production, with factories & a railyard which have been supplying French forces with munitions. Our bombers will destroy these assets, and hamper the ability of these enemy forces to continue resisting our advance toward their borders!
    "objective_string"=On the evening of 11 May, Heinkels of III/KG 55 got intercepted over the French town of Auxonne by Moranes of GC III/6. The French fighters shot down one bomber & damaged two more, whilst the French lost three fighters in the attack due to the aggression and accuracy of these German gunners. The town of Auxonne had a large railyard, and it is assumed that this was a target for the bombers, but this cannot be confirmed. The Heinkels didn't have an escort for this bombing mission.
    "intelligence_string"=Once airborne, you will rendezvous with the other bombers and fly west-southwest into France. Your flight will maintain top cover at 5,000 meters. As you near Auxonne, you will strike the factories on the north side of the river, while the other flights strike the railyard. After releasing, turn due east to clear the area, then turn east-northeast to head for Germany. You will not have any escort for this mission, so be ready for enemy fighters if they do appear. Good luck!
    "player_aircraft_name_string"=GC_He111H6
    "airfield_string"=Germany - Memmingen

    "title_string"=Battle of France - Heinkels & D-520s over Beauvais
    "summary_string"=Prenez l'air maintenant! We must catch the enemy before they can attack the aerodrome at Beauvais. You must intercept 'em, & be aggressive! Tear into 'em and take down as many of the bombers as you can, & show the French that with our best fighters we are a force to be reckoned with!
    "objective_string"=This is an amalgam of two sorties flown by French pilots on 19 May 1940. In the first sortie, D-520s from GC I/3 shot down two He-111s of III/KG 27 south of Soissons. There are no records of combat losses for the French squadron. During the second mission, Ms-406s of GC I/2 shot down two German Bf-109s of JG 51 south of Laon. Again, there's no record of any French losses. For this mission, the two events are combined, & all of the bombers are given the task of raiding Beauvais airfield, whilst Bf-109s fly escort. This mission can't be verified historically.
    "intelligence_string"=After getting into the air, fly north-northwest and climb up to 4,250 meters. Once you find the enemy bombers, tear into them and try to shoot down as many as you can. Make sure to look for any sign of escort fighters, especially 109s, before engaging the bombers. After you exhaust your ammo, break off and fly back to Dammartin-en-Goele to refuel and reload. Bonne chance!

    Good evening,

    Still plugging away...

    "title_string"=Battle of France (RAF) - Lending the Dutch assistance
    "summary_string"=Attention! The Germans have been dropping troops behind Dutch lines, if you can comprehend such a thing. We have been asked to help, and in spite of being hard pressed ourselves, British Command has said yes. Your priority is to take out the transport aircraft that have just landed at Ypenburg, & try to prevent the enemy from capturing this airfield!
    "objective_string"=On 10 May 1940, the uneasy stalemate in the west came to an abrupt end when German forces began their attack on Holland, Belgium, & France. Within three weeks, the Germans had overrun Belgium and Holland, and they successfully cut off the Allied Armies in Northeastern France from the remainder of the force to the southwest by smashing through the Ardennes and driving to the coast. On 11 May, some sixteen Hurricanes from 32 Sqn strafed the German-held field at Ypenburg, and found fifteen destroyed transports & one intact. All Hurricanes returned safely.
    "intelligence_string"=After takeoff, head east-northeast over the North Sea to reach Holland & then strafe the Luftwaffe transports which just landed at Ypenburg airfield. A total of sixteen Hurricanes will be involved for this effort, split into four flights. Your task is to strafe and eliminate as many transport aircraft as possible, and see if you can ignite fuel stores and ammo crates. Once you finish your attacks, return to Biggin Hill before enemy fire chews you up!
    "player_aircraft_name_string"=AH_Hurricanemk1 32 Sqn
    "airfield_string"=England - Biggin Hill

    "title_string"=Battle of France - Keeping pace with Schnellbombers
    "summary_string"=Pour vos chasseurs, aviateurs! Your Moranes will patrol to the northeast of Lure, looking for enemy bombers coming over the mountains from Germany. Try to catch them as quickly as possible and deter them from their attack! We must show the Germans that we'll meet each penetration into our airspace, and that they will not overwhelm us!
    "objective_string"=The morning of 11 May saw Ms-406s from GC II/7 intercept Ju-88s hitting Lure-Malbouhans airfield. The French pilots damaged three of these Ju-88s, who were from II/KG 51. There are no reports of any French losses during the attack. This was part of the initial "Blitz" by Luftwaffe bombers to try and disrupt as much of the enemy aerial capability as they could.
    "intelligence_string"=After taking off, you will climb to 5,000m and try to intercept the German bombers before they can approach Lure. Once you catch these Germans, you may have to stay at nearly full throttle in order to remain with them if they are Ju-88s. Tear into the enemy and take down as many bombers as you can, using all of your ammunition before breaking off. Once you exhaust your ammo, break off and head for Juvaincourt to recover until your airbase can be repaired, if you cannot force these Germans to abort.

    No Dice,

    My ability in mission builder is about the same as many other CFS2 mission builders over the years. I learned from Talon, Pen32Win, Devildog73, Ajax, Skylane, Cody Coyote, Captain Kurt, Shadow Wolf 07, and many others about how to construct missions.

    I tend to make some missions more complicated than they need to be sometimes, because I like to provide higher target selection for the flyer.

    That being said, I do have "the gift of gab" when it comes to writing mission descriptions, I will grant you that.
