Training: Spanish Civil War Aircraft

Night will be a mix up -- half Republican, half Nationalist.

 


 

After Training Report

Muster: BS, CL, YT, ZZ

Debrief:  Everyone found that although the Germans and Italians had the edge over the Allied supplied Republican side, some of the aircraft had siginficant limitations. As an example YT and CL chose to intercept bombers with the HS-123 biplane. This probably would have worked if the bombers hadn't been above 5000 feet,  the ceiling limit of the HS-123.  Also the early 109s were also limited in ammunition and, like the Republican side, for the most part used small calibler guns. After the first hour defending our base we took the initiative and headed off to bomb the Republican base.  Many points were collected and after YT and CL landed safely at home base some problems started to pop up.   BS and CL both had weird trouble with the DO-17 that none of us had ever seen before.  We could fly the plane from external views but could not access the cockpit.  Then nearing the end of the mission CL was on landing approach and lost power thanks to a lightning strike about a mile away.  No damage to the computer but annoying anyway and lead to an early evening for him.

Next we will divide our resources and fly both sides just to get some experience flying against both AI and humans.  I suspect this will degenerate to a points competition but that's fine... gaining experience in the various aircraft is what the next mission is all about anyway.

After Training Report

Muster: BS, CL, YT, ZZ

Debrief: Well, it took a while for everyone to learn how to get a Panther off a carrier deck but once everyone realized the time it takes for an early jet to spool up and reach full power things moved right along.  After about 45 minutes our bases were attacked by North Korean forces and we ALL found out how hard these jets are to see at these speeds.  BS and YT spend 20 minutes or more trying to chase down a couple Mig 17s at 20K feet and in the end ran out of time. In the end both the land base and carriers were finally attacked by Russian nuclear bombers, and some of us saw the explosions, others for some reason didn't.

Lessons learned from this mission:  Give early jet engines time to spool up to full throttle, and its very hard to see small jets when your traveling at 600-700 kts.

After Training Report

Muster: BS, CL, YT, ZZ

Debrief: Everyone had the chance to fly the early versions of some of WWII's most famous aircraft.  Lessons were learned about carburators and limited ammo.  Biggest lesson was with the limited ammo and small caliber guns of these early aircraft.  We also learned that the Republic side of the Spanish Civil War were outclassed in many areas by the German and Italian supported Nationalists, especially in bombers.  Next up we'll train on the Nationalist side.

After Training Report

Muster: BS, FL, YT, ZZ

Debrief: Jets turned out to be the most challenging, both on take off and landing on CVs.  Need more runway than the short runway on Midway affords safely.  No one was able to trap, perhaps we neeb training?  Landing on ground was easy once we figured out to deploy air brakes. YT stood in for CL.  ZZ was back and we had him in stitches.
