    Aldertag Event #2 - Saturday, October 21, 2023 at 1900 GMT on the ATAG Server



    Coming off the roaring success of Adlertag #1 which actually filled the ATAG server, we are announcing Adlertag #2 thanks to Polak and his noble ~OBT Squad. Be sure to join us on Saturday, October 21, 2023 at 1900 GMT on the ATAG Axis vs Allies Server. All welcome, plus this event will be accessible to both Blitz-only and Blitz/Tobruk players.

    @Noofy - take a look at the Blue spawn points. I added a couple just for you!

    Cheers and see you all on Saturday!



    **Note: Briefing tweaked slightly for historical accuracy. Thanks to Polak for his ongoing work on this!

    August 13, 1940.


    11.45 in the morning.


    SCRAMBLE!!!


    The following information from our Intelligence Services is now definitely confirmed.


    The Luftwaffe have decided to launch their final offensive against England.


    Early this morning, two mass bomber raids were detected above Kent. RAF Eastchurch and RAF West Malling were hit hard, as well as the dockyard area of Sheerness.


    Now, it seems clear that it is our sector that will be attacked next.


    Radar stations have just detected two enemy formations regrouping in the Le Havre sector (AO.5), probably between 9000 and 15000 feet.


    Be extremely careful! Bf 109's of Jagdgeschwader 27 and Bf 110's of Zerstörergeschwader 2, seem to be present in large numbers to escort their comrades!


    All available aircraft must take off immediately and intercept these incoming raids.


    PRIORITY OBJECTIVES:


    Intercept these two German raids before they can drop their bombs.
    Stop them before they can reach the coast.
    Organize coastal patrols and interception raids over the Channel.
    Protect all airfields between Shoreham (AM.19) and Southampton (AF.21) as well as the port areas of Southampton and Portsmouth.


    SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:


    Three merchant ships have just left the Port of Southampton, heading east. Protect them.


    Two groups of Royal Navy ships are patrolling to the east of the Isle of Wight,
    one heading east, the other west. Again, protect them.


    Protect Ventnor Radar Station (AE.17)


    Protect Poling Radar Station (AK.19)


    Available aircraft:


    RAF Ford (AK.19) No 602 Squadron
    Spitfire Ia (100oct)
    RAF Tangmere (AJ.20) No 601 Squadron
    Hurricane I (Rotol 100oct), Hurricane I (DH 5-20100oct)


    RAF Westhampnett (AJ.20) No 602 Squadron
    Spitfire Ia (100oct)


    RAF Gosport (AG.19) No 609 Squadron
    Spitfire Ia (100oct)


    RAF Lee on Solent airfield (AG.19) No 609 Squadron
    Hurricane I (Rotol 100oct), Hurricane I (DH 5-20100oct)


    RAF Hamble (AF.20) No 213 Squadron
    Hurricane I (Rotol 100oct), Hurricane I (DH 5-20100oct)


    RAF Southampton (AF.21) No 152 Squadron
    Spitfire Ia (100oct)


    RAF Sandown airfield (AG.17) No 609 Squadron
    Hurricane I (Rotol 100oct)




    Radar information is available on TAB 7 1 and will give pilots the position of enemy planes relative to their position, if close enough.

    August 13, 1940.


    11.45 in the morning.


    Comrades: as you know the final offensive against England has begun!


    Today is 'Adlerangriff' but many raids have been cancelled this morning due to bad weather.


    Only comrades from Lehrgeschwader 1 and Kampfgeschwader II were able to drop their bombs successfully on targets in Kent.


    You must plan to escort the next two bomber raids over sectors in Hampshire and West Sussex.


    PRIORITY OBJECTIVES (Fighter pilots):


    All Jagdgeschwader 27 and Zerstörergeschwader 2 fighter pilots must take off immediately and gain altitude above the Seine Estuary! (AO.5)


    They must rendezvous at 5000 meters (AO.5) at 12h10 with the first group of Bf 110 bombers from III/LG 1, escort them to their target and back to France.


    Other pilots must rendezvous at 4000 meters (AO.5) at 12h25 with the second group of Ju 87 Stukas from I/LG 1, escort them to their target and during their return to France.


    If pilots miss the rendezvous with the bombers, they will leave their charges unescorted over England and vulnerable to attack. They will be solely responsible for the fate of their comrades!


    Fighter pilots must organize close escort above the bombers! As Colonel Adolph Galland said it makes you 'a dog on a leash' but it is absolutely necessary!


    Some fighter patrols will nevertheless be able to fly ahead of the bomber stream to patrol above the target area, in order to deny the RAF air superiority. (Patrol the coast from Shoreham (AM.19) to Southampton (AF.21)


    SECONDARY OBJECTIVES (Bomber pilots):


    Three merchant ships have just left the Port of Southampton, heading east. Sink them!


    Two groups of Royal Navy ships are patrolling to the east of the Isle of Wight,
    one heading east, the other west. Sink them!


    Ventnor Radar Station (AE.17)


    Poling Radar Station (AK.19)


    Petersfield steel complex (AI.21)


    Winchester arms factory (AF.22)


    Ryde Gas Mask factory (AG.18)


    Many merchant ships in Southampton (AE.20) and Portsmouth (AG.19) harbors.


    Available aircraft


    Plumetot airfield I/JG27 (AL.3)
    Bf109 E1, Bf109 E3, Bf109 E4


    Crépon airfield II/JG27 (AK.3)
    Bf109 E1, Bf109 E3, Bf109 E4


    Le Havre airfield III/JG27 (AO.5)
    Bf109 E1, Bf109 E3, Bf109 E4


    Deauville airfield I/ZG 2 (AP.4)
    Bf110 C2/C4/C4B/C4 late/C7


    Théville airfield I./LG 1 (AD.7)
    Ju 87 B2 Stukas.


    Caen Carpiquet airfield I./LG 1 (AK.1)
    Ju 88 A-1

    Air Spawns:


    1) Montdidier (BF7.9) Ju87 G-2


    2) Creil (BF2.4) Bf110 C-4B


    The radar menu work TAB 7 1 give you the position of enemy planes relative to your position if you are close enough.

    Unfortunately this is a relatively short notice. I am not sure if anybody from our squadron will show up on saturday evening. Probably the real life and family stuff will prevail. But good luck for all of you!

    Likewise would love to take part but will be busy on Saturday evening. I wonder if Sunday events might be better in future, as more likely people will be at home.
    Thanks for organising these events - I look forward to taking part in future.

    I'll certainly aim to make another appearance for this next chapter of the Cliffs of Dover: Adlertag saga!
    Though perhaps not on the same side as last time... I'm planning on alternating to get the best of both sides throughout all this, y'see

    Now this is what I call a target rich environment!!!

    All targets in a 6x7 grid... If you can't find enemies you forgot to turn on your PC.

    Visual brief below

    LEGEND:

    Unnamed airfields are not available for spawn but are available for landing

    Green circle around airfield means fighters available

    Blue circle around airfield means bombers available

    Compass dial on airfields is aligned with the middle of the longest runway (zoom in to see the numbers)

    Sorry to hear that, what you need is a Dazza tribute act to fill-in for you now and again, I think if I had the choice of flying or standing behind two girls in ABBA costumes for a couple of hours I would be conflicted
    Don't let Grudges fester and poison your future happiness......get your revenge as quickly as possible.

    Addendum: Turns out I'm working every Saturday through the rest of 2023, except xmas weekend. Then I suspect the same in 2024.
    Unless there's a possible rotation of alternate event days I'm out of luck.

    ADLERTAG EVENT 2 -
    SATURDAY OCTOBER 21st
    AXIS V ALLIES SERVER
    19.00 GMT


    1, The black heart of Nazi Germany.........Nuremburg Stadium, Germany.......August 13th, 1940

    The Nuremburg Stadium was once more filled to capacity. On the concrete podium, general's batons vied for position with SS Guards, elaborate insignia and numerous fluttering banners and flags. In front of the podium, thousands, standing rigidly to attention, waited with scarcely controlled excitement, for the great man to arrive.
    They did not have long to wait. A ripple surged through the crowds as the Fuhrer stepped forward to the concrete podium. Trumpets blared a greeting as Hitler stood before the microphone and, with his arms gripping either side, surveyed the crowds before him.

    'Volk des großen Deutschen Reiches, ich bringe Euch Neuigkeiten von der Front! This morning der forces of our gallant Luftwaffe attacked Kent and der south east of England causing great damage. Ve know zat RAF airfields at Eastchurch and West Malling ver badly hit unt factories int Ashford wer alzo damaged. How do ve know zis? Because zum dumkopf called Polak published it int the ATAG Forum for all to zee! Ve don't need to parachute nuns into Engaland ever again. Ve can read it all in the ATAG Forum!

    Hitler clapped his hands, as the stadium rocked with the laughter of four hundred thousand loyal Nazis - the sound louder than the start up of several Daimler-Benz!

    'Great bravery was shown by der Blue team....er.....I mean, der Luftwaffe..... unt I would like to mention Major Noofy....... or should I zay newly promoted Oberstleutnant Noofy....... who singlehandedly destroyed three British tankers in Folkstone Harbour! Huzzah'

    Hitler paused and smiled as a huge wave of cheering rang out around the stadium. Finally, he raised his hand and the stadium fell silent once more.

    'In honour of Noofy's achievement, I haf ordered a little zurprise.'

    At this, Hitler paused once more and turned his eyes skywards. Right on cue, the assembled 109's of 9./JG 52 and JG 4 roared over the stadium at what seemed head height!
    In the leading aircraft, Oberst Meyer looked down at the cheering crowds:

    'Eeeh,' he sighed,'that'll be a grand sight, right enough! By 'eck!'

    Either side of him, 9./JG 52 Mindle and J-Hat wondered, for the umpteenth time, why their commanding officer was speaking in a Yorkshire accent? Perhaps the war was beginning to 'get to him' after all!

    'Reet,' growled Meyer, 'I've 'ad nowt t'eat all day! Let's get 'ome for us dinners!'

    (to be continued!)

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Will 9./JG52 ever make it 'ome......sorry....home, for their dinners? And will they actually get back to the Pas de Calais in time to take part in Saturday's Event?
    Will Noofy score another hat trick of tankers..... or can the Reds...... remembering October 21st is the very day we 'dished' the French and Spanish at Trafalgar (of Blessed memory!) summon up their inner (and outer) Heroes and so Save the Day?
    Will you be there to help them?
    We very much hope so...... the more the merrier! HUZZAH!

    Gentlemen, the day of Adlertag mission #2 has arrived, I hope that there will be many of us again this evening.

    I forgot to specify this during mission #1, the TAB 4 menu gives you access to refuel and rearm,
    Undamaged aircraft stopped at an airfield, engine off, magneto off, fuel cock off for it to work.

    A big thank you to DD_FT who sent me a script which is installed on the DangerDogs server in order to try to correct the bug of planes which do not despawn.
    It seems to be working well there, we'll see if it helps for this evening, I'm waiting for your feedback on this subject.

    For bomber pilots I have just edited the reconnaissance photos so that you can clearly identify your objectives.
    Don't forget to make tracks and photos of the bombed targets so that we can debrief.

    As for the fighter pilots...we'll see each other tonight

    Thank you in advance to everyone who will participate, I hope everyone has fun and above all don't forget the most important thing

    CHECK YOUR SIX!!!
