    ETO Global Layers

    So I am looking up places where KG76 were based in ca. the ETO 1945 era and I noticed they are still in France! Now I haven't examined the GSLs post June 1944 and the later liberation of France but somehow I suspect the ETO gsl doesn't fully reflect the loss to Germany of the territory pre Dec 1945. I am also not sure (yet) whether that gsl reflects all the main active fliegerhorsts in Germany during the last month of the war (Dec1944 on. Western Front at least).
    I note anyway no Fliergerhorst Burg where various units of KG76 were based.

    Looking into this further, mainly because I want to do a few missions for the Ar234, it seems that the info in the 1`945 era was probably just copied from previous eras. For instance I don;t even see any gsl for Bastogne or Remargen' as well as some other Belgium cities. Probably a lot more stuff specific to this era not there. It's almost as if 1945 era was an afterthought. I haven't even looked at the 1944 era since previously my area of interest has been nighttime era 3 and BOB day and night. Something else to work on!

    There's always something to work on, mate! When I've managed to spend some time in the ETO eras, I've been absolutely astounded at how much work has been achieved! The airfields, in vast numbers, in multiple eras, are very involving with all the special facilities and vehicles bringing the airbases to life.

    The ETO team achieved something very special and I find something new every time I enter the ETO world

    Well that is also very true. ETO was a great install and I imagine wore out all the people involved. It certainly is the basis for all my TOW stuff. I just have never looked at the later eras that much before. If it wasn't for Ar234, I probably still wouln't have got around to Era 5! As it is, there is still plenty of gsl work I feel I have to do in 2-4 WRT day and night bombing facilities for the gsl's!

    It would be great to have some missions for the new Ar-234. Thanks mongoose for tackling it. A great aircraft ! One greatly needed for the ETO.

    Back to gsl's! I forget now if WOFF or even CFS3 missions have dynamic war fronts, but again, working on the ETO Era 5, I note everything in France was really Axis when trying to do missions. Would it be possible to make a front line in the gsl or some other way that say, reflected the start of that era?

    So this is what is in a mission (A rough approximation). Could that be somehow put in the gsl?

    <FrontLine>
    <Point Lat="N54*59'31.1951&quot;" Lon="E8*28'25.7121&quot;"/>
    <Point Lat="N53*31'8.4489&quot;" Lon="E7*9'52.1468&quot;"/>
    <Point Lat="N51*33'18.1009&quot;" Lon="E5*57'2.2954&quot;"/>
    <Point Lat="N51*8'45.1251&quot;" Lon="E5*52'7.6981&quot;"/>
    <Point Lat="N50*49'6.7305&quot;" Lon="E5*31'40.2011&quot;"/>
    <Point Lat="N50*9'49.9437&quot;" Lon="E6*17'29.7731&quot;"/>
    <Point Lat="N49*33'49.5754&quot;" Lon="E6*37'57.2676&quot;"/>
    <Point Lat="N49*10'5.6808&quot;" Lon="E6*53'30.1612&quot;"/>
    <Point Lat="N49*6'0.1900&quot;" Lon="E7*47'30.7320&quot;"/>
    </FrontLine>


    Meanwhile I suppose the best alternative is to do a template missions just with the front line (approximate) upon which missions can be built. Dec44 Front line.txt You must save it as an xml file of course!

    The attached shows what it was in Dec 1944.
