limburger59: There is no official modifier for Italian fighters in QOTS. Felipe Santamaria created variants for QOTS awhile back. Hopefully this link works: www.mediafire.com/folder/ybg5dh4ucqyg9/EJEMPLO_EN_INGLES#6gd83tyknjact Sept 22, 2020 18:16:01 GMT -8

kjtrout: I have a question, prior to my first mission: Are there any damage modifiers from the new Italian Fighters I may encounter (qots player) similar to the fw190 for example(1.5 hits), that I am unaware of? Thanks! Sept 22, 2020 8:51:40 GMT -8

onezuludelta: Alright, I ran through a mission on VASSAL and I think I got the hang of it, I think I'll join and just play VASSAL until I get the physical copy in the mail Sept 19, 2020 11:05:02 GMT -8
linnyfish8: Awesome, thank you. that is what I thought. I'll edit my post with the "correct" numbers (I put both just so I wouldn't get confused) Sept 18, 2020 13:45:16 GMT -8
crushedhat: Correct. You must either complete the mission or abort after having engaged the enemy. Sept 18, 2020 13:11:26 GMT -8
linnyfish8: Just to make sure, for the latest mission we crashed on takeoff and are Cat-E. For the crew that survives, this does not count towards their mission total since we didn't even take off, right? Sept 18, 2020 11:41:54 GMT -8
onezuludelta: Ah, nice, thanks for the link! "the 509th will be moving either to Algeria or England or Dakar or New Orleans"... being from New Orleans, I can confidently say y'all got shortchanged with the move to Algeria. Sept 18, 2020 5:40:54 GMT -8

onezuludelta: Thanks it looks like a great time, I especially think it will be even easier to get into the game with all this wonderful campaign pre-planning already done for me!. Another question, the last campaign was based in Malta? Sept 17, 2020 5:03:33 GMT -8
medic1: Actually, Lame Horse became a POW on mission 027 Sept 16, 2020 17:49:51 GMT -8
limburger59: Answer for - Active players depends on Real Life. One mission may have a dozen players assigned to a squadron submitting AARs. The next mission only 8. We don’t limit the number of players to 6 per squadron as enjoying the game is priority. Sept 16, 2020 11:06:22 GMT -8
