80th Squadron Office


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
limburger59: - The last campaign with the 9th AF was based out of Fayid, Egypt. Our final mission ended on Malta. 509th-vbw.proboards.com/thread/1669/mission-025-sfax-tunisia Sept 17, 2020 15:24:14 GMT -8
onezuludelta: And this is in Algeria, then the next in Italy? Sept 17, 2020 5:03:44 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
onezuludelta: Hey all, I'm new here and would like to join up. Will probably buy a copy of TfT soon. Just wondering: around how many people are active in the squadrons? Sept 16, 2020 10:36:59 GMT -8
jasta6: , Yes, I had a 3/2 escort once and rolled up five Butcherbirds in the first of two waves. I took a lick'n that zone and didn't realize my error till two zones later... OH WELL, live and learn. Recounting for a friend! :-/ Sept 15, 2020 17:13:49 GMT -8
limburger59: Kitkala Lame Horse flew on Mission 25, and was last seen on Malta flirting with that Scottish Red Cross volunteer who was passing out donuts and hot tea. Looks like he didn't make the transition between campaigns. Sept 15, 2020 11:13:02 GMT -8
theboyce: Where is Kitkala Lame Horse these days? I do hope he makes it home.... Sept 13, 2020 20:17:11 GMT -8
jasta6: Cat Scratch Fever II and crew are Wheels Down, safe and sound... Uneventful AAR being crafted. Sept 13, 2020 10:01:46 GMT -8
teufelhunde87: My friend forgets that he can only fire 2 of the 3 front guns! Sept 13, 2020 9:15:21 GMT -8
blaird: tell your... friend... :) yes I've done it Sept 12, 2020 19:33:15 GMT -8 *
theboyce: Anyone ever forget about air cover, roll loads of dice that end up killing several crew members, and then realize what they have done, and refreshingly wipe it all away? Asking for a friend Sept 12, 2020 12:50:19 GMT -8 *
jasta6: Mission 30, Crew of Cat Scratch Fever II are Wheels up..... Sept 12, 2020 3:47:03 GMT -8
theboyce: Just finished typing up the AAR for 29. Sad day for the bomber crew of MISS HAP. Going to catch up to the campaign tomorrow and fly 30. Hopefully this doesn't screw too much up. Sept 11, 2020 21:50:36 GMT -8
