    Some screenshots from one of the missions. I managed to down 3 of 12 escorted Hs-129s:

    This mission is driving me crazy! I've been working on it for 4 days now and am nearly finished test flying it. It has a possible 96 aircraft, 48 vehicles and 87 objects, 38 trrigers and 34 events.

    I finally got it. I cleaned up the events and made the German escorts more aggressive and now the mission works fine. I had to do some fancy flying to evade the escorts, but I managed to down 4 Hs-129/ I ran out of ammo before I could engage the Stuka flights. Here are a few screenshots for your browsing enjoyment:

    indeed Captain... I am test flying 2 more missions:

    "objective_string"=In the early morning of August i, recon aircraft of both air armies spotted the retreat of Nazi truck columns and tanks from Orel toward Bryansk. They noted some 500 to 1,000 trucks and other vehicles, moving in a continuous column with fighter cover overhead. The Commander of the Red Army Air Force, himself ordered 15th and 16th Air Armies to immediately carry out day and night strikes on this withdrawal. Soviet aviation operated for the next 2 days in groups of 4-8 bombers and inflicted heavy losses on the enemy. But this left the advancing Soviet tank and mechanized corps and rifle divisions elsewhere with sparse cover and vulnerable to Luftwaffe bombers, who launched 3,241 sorties on 1-2 August and inflicted severe losses.in men. tanks and equipment.

    One is with the player flying an Il-2 and the other a Pe-2. Each is with escorts, but the escorts - P-39Ks - are outnumbered by enemy fighters. The player has to do some fancy flying to avoid interceptors and hit the targets.

    Having a problem

    In test flying the above mission, I have found that with a flight of 8 or even 7 Pe-2s, at least 4 aircraft crash on take off in 4 out of 4 attempts. I have a few options: change to a different Pe-2; make it an air start; scrap the mission and fly it as an escort with the P-39K. Any ideas or suggestions? I'm gonna try another Pe-2 variant first.

    PS: I tried it... the results an be seen in the two screenshots below.

    What if you use only four planes in the player formation, and have four more ai join you somewhere after takeoff?
    I don't know what models of the Pe-2 are available, but you might ant to try a different airfile in the model you use, if you have several?
    Personally I'm no fan of air starts..

    I downloaded a different variant (also by Thicko) and it was a more date of employment accurate too. I'm surprised i didn't notice it when building my aircraft library months ago. Anyway, it works fine on takeoff for both the player's flight and as an 8-plane AI flight.

    I have finished and flight tested both a player, Pe-2 strike on a vehicle convoy, and with the player escorting an AI Pe-2 strike on the convoy. 59 missions completed and tested... moving on.

    Cheers to you all:
