5) It is important to post on the "Pilot Check-In" thread and say hello immediately upon activating your account and joining the campaign of interest user group (and making it your default group) as described in the steps above. This confirms your forum registration is complete and that you have all the rights and privileges needed. Making a post is important since it proves that you are not a spam account and the forum will treat your account better and it will make our jobs easier managing all the accounts correctly.

Please help your teammates and others who may have trouble with the above. It does work! Most problems are user errors because pilots do not complete steps #4 and #5.

101st Anniversary - "der Adler von Lille" Nov. 12

Fokker_Imm.png


Salute gentlemen!

I'm pleased to annouce that with the kind permission of Jasta99 on Sunday, November 12 we will host the great "Der Adler von

Lille", the "Eagle of Lille" tournament map.

The original event was put on by Jasta99 to commemorate the 99th anniversary of Max Immelmann's death (16 June, 1916) and was an

epic event for the whole Rise of Flight community. This year we'll mark the 101st anniversary of Immelmann's being named to be

soley responsible for the air defense of the city of Lille.



imm_dog.jpg

The man:

Immelmann served as a pilot with Feldflieger Abteilung (Field Flier Detachment) 10 from February to April 1915, and then in FFA 62

by early May 1915. On several occasions he engaged in combat while flying the L.V.G. two-seaters with which his units were

equipped, but never with any success. On 3 June 1915, he was shot down by a French pilot but managed to land safely behind German

lines. Immelmann was decorated with the Iron Cross, Second Class for preserving his aircraft.

Two very early examples of the Fokker Eindeckers were delivered to the unit, one Fokker M.5K/MG production prototype numbered

E.3/15 for Oswald Boelcke's use, with Immelmann later in July receiving E.13/15 as a production Fokker E.I for his own use before

the end of July. It was with the lMG 08 machine gun-armed E.13/15 aircraft that he gained his first confirmed air victory of the

war on 1 August 1915, a fortnight after Leutnant Kurt Wintgens obtained the very first confirmed German aerial victory on July 15,

1915 with his own Fokker M.5K/MG production prototype E.5/15 Eindecker, one of five built, following two unconfirmed ones on July

1 and 4, all before Immelmann.


"Like a hawk, I dived... and fired my machine gun. For a moment, I believed I would fly right into him. I had fired about 60 shots

when my gun jammed. That was awkward, for to clear the jam I needed both hands - I had to fly completely without hands.." - Max

Immelmann

Lieutenant William Reid fought back valiantly, flying with his left hand and firing a pistol with his right. Nonetheless, the 450

bullets fired at him took their effect; Reid suffered four wounds in his left arm, and his airplane's engine quit, causing a crash

landing. The unarmed Immelmann landed nearby, and approached Reid; they shook hands and Immelmann said to the British pilot "You

are my prisoner" and pulled Reid out of the wreckage and rendered first aid.

Immelmann became one of the first German fighter pilots, quickly building an impressive score of air victories. During September,

three more victories followed, and then in October he became solely responsible for the air defense of the city of Lille.

Immelmann became known as The Eagle of Lille (Der Adler von Lille). He gained two further victories during September, to become

the first German ace.




The Mission:

It is going to be a warm summer day with a clear sky, but in the early morning, ground is slightly foggy. Central and Entente

forces are entrapped in endless battles in their trenches. Neither, the Central nor the Entente side is able to make a

breakthrough. Each side got stuck in their muddy trenches. Movement only happens in the wide blue skies of northern France.




Weather: Slightly foggy on ground level, Clouds at 2200m / 7200ft

Wind speed: 0-2 ms - depending on altitude.

Wind Direction: West

Temerature: 19°C / 66°F

Pressure: 775Mmhg / 1033hPa

Mapdate: 18th of June 1916 Maptime: 07:00am Duration: 4 hours

Map start time: 1800GMT on 12 November

*Note* There will be no mission password, we will just run it as a normal Sunday Vintage Mission. Fuel loads are unlocked, all

weapon mods permitted, remember to lock your gunner seats, as the session is open to all. No death penatly, but we do ask all to

fight with honor and chivalry on this one...if your opponent is going down, let him land...maybe even set down and land next to

him and shake his hand as Immelmann once did ;) Good luck all pilots!

Re: 101st Anniversary - "der Adler von Lille" Nov. 12

Salute gentlemen, I'm pleased to announce that thanks to the efforts of J2_SteveF, we will have separate mission/event stats for

the Eagle of Lille Campaign this Sunday, for those that are keeping score ;) http://vintage-missions.net

There are 26 aircraft per side at the start of the mission, aircraft replenish after 5 minutes. Fuel loads are unlocked, *Note:

the Airco DH2 fighter has 3hr 15min of fuel at 100%, so 33% will get you at least an hour of flight time and a good bit more

manuverability*

Good luck all pilots!

Map
Targets and Objectives will be displayed on the map for both sides. During the mission targets will be
marked on the map if they were destroyed. Each side will get the same information from the map,
where to attack and where to defend. There are no subtitles, objectives can completed in any order.


Observation
Airfields will fire green flares when friendly aircraft come near and yellow flares when an enemy
aircraft comes near. Additionally there are several observation points that fire
yellow flares when an enemy aircraft comes near.


AAA
There is anti-aircraft artillery deployed near the frontline and at each airfield and target.


Objectives


Balloons

There are three observation balloons on each side that have to be destroyed. Each balloon is covered
by anti-aircraft fire. Once a balloon is destroyed, it will remain destroyed for the rest of the mission.
Balloons will fire yellow flares if an enemy plane comes near and fire a red flare when being attacked.
A destroyed observation balloon will be marked on the map by a cross.

Trains

There are two trains on each side
commuting between two locations. Trains can be combated by
either a fighter using his machine guns or a 2-Seater using bombs. A destroyed train will be marked
on the map by a cross.


Convoys
There are three convoys on each side commuting between two locati
ons. Each convoy consists of
five unarmoured vehicles. Convoys can be combated by either a fighter using his machine guns or a
2 Seater using bombs. A destroyed convoy will be marked on the map by a cross.


Photo Reconnaissance Missions

There are two Photo-Reconnaissance missions for each side. These missions can be flown from each
2-Seater aircraft that is carrying a photo camera. There is a minimum altitude of 1500m / 5000ft for a
successful mission. After taking the photos that cover minimum 75% of the Photo-Reconnaissance area the aircraft
have to carry them back to the airfield. A successful Photo-Reconnaissance mission
will be marked on the map by a cross.


Bombing and Photo Reconnaissance Missions

There are two bridges and two artillery positions on each side, which have to be destroyed by a 2-
Seater aircraft carrying bombs. At each artillery position there are two batteries each consisting of four
guns that have to be destroyed completely. A destroyed bridge or artillery position
will be marked on the map by a cross.
After a bridge or an artillery position was destroyed it is subject to an additional Photo-Reconnaissance
mission. These missions can be flown from each 2-Seater aircraft that is carrying a photo camera. There
is a minimum altitude of 1500m / 5000ft for a successful mission.After taking five photos of the Photo
-Reconnaissance area the aircraft have to carry them back to the airfield. A successful Photo
-Reconnaissance mission will be marked on the map by a camera symbol.


This means a maximum of 51 mission points for each side.
Additionally each confirmed kill of an enemy airplane will add one
point to the total score. A confirmed kill will be considered as a kill that is stated in the server statistics. In case, that

server statistics are temporary offline, maybe a kill will not count. This will reflect the fact of several unconfirmed kills of
pilots, like Max Immelmann, during the Great War.


Scoring

Photo reconnaissance - 2pts each (4 total)

Balloon busting - 2pts each (6 total)

Bridge bombing - 2pts each (4 total)

Photo reconnaissance of destroyed bridge - 3pts each (6 total)

Artillery position bombing - 2pts each (4 total)

Photo reconnaissance of destroyed artillery position - 3pts each (6 total)

Train attack - 3pts each (6 total)

Convoy attack (5 vehicles per Convoy) - 5pts each (15 total)


Penalties

No death penalty, but remember the two seaters need human gunners when possible, so if you are handy in a gunner's position,

consider asking to join an aircraft, someone will need you!

An airplane that was shot down or has been landed outside an active airfield will be replaced by a new
one after 5 minutes.

A damaged airplane that has been landed on an active friendly airfield
will be repaired after 5 minutes.

Re: 101st Anniversary - "der Adler von Lille" Nov. 12

A big thanks to all for flying and making it one hell of a fight! It was certainly an intense 4 hours of early bird flying. The victory went to Central Powers by a single 3 point objective late in the match. There will certainly be a rematch at some point in the future.



Stay tuned for Knights of the Sea III We'll try and get a date set sometime mid December, before the Christmas holiday truce. The great guys at Syndicate hooked us up with a different Knights of the Sea map for this event that is a 1918 plane set. Objectives are similar but naval targets are moved farther SW where the Channel narrows between Dover and the coast of France.



Thanks again to all, keep 'em flying!

Great Job for putting it together!

PS that last 3 point score wasn't a photograph by chance?
