Oct. 14 - 15 Vintage Mission Weekend

1) Be sure to add the @jasta5.org domain to your safe senders list in your email system.

2) Register for the Jasta 5 Parser at http://stats.jasta5.org.

3) Register on this event forum. Please be sure you put "BAS_" in front of your forum user/profile name initially until your account is activated. Otherwise you may be mistaken for a webbot. Register on this forum and activate your account by clicking on the link in the confirmation email sent to you. If you do not receive the automated activation email within 10 minutes, check to see if it is in your SPAM box.

4) Before you can post on the forum, you must:

a) add yourself to the correct user group for the campaign of interest.
To add yourself to the user group go into the "User Control Panel" in the upper left corner of the forum window and select "Usergroups". Select the button next to "Black September" or "Bloody April". Look for the "Submit" button on the bottom right of the page.

b) Make "Black September" or "Bloody April" user group your default user group
To set your default group you must go back to the Usergroups page and select the user group for the campaign you are wanting to participate in and look for the "Make Default" button at the bottom left of the page.

If you don't do both of these actions (add yourself to the campaign of interest user group AND make it your default user group), you must wait to be added to the group by an administrator before you can post. Until you make a post as a member of the campaigns user group, you will not be able to see various forums and files such as the rules. You will receive an automated email when you have been added to the user group by an administrator manually. Please be patient as we must sort out spam registrations from valid ones and delete spammer posts during "open" registration. Once the event begins the spammers will be locked out. You don't need to wait if you join the user group yourself and set your "default" user group yourself as described above.

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.

Salute gentlemen! Since we have an open weekend between the end of Jasta 5's Black September Campaign and the start of the Flanders in Flames Campaign next weekend, we will feature a Vintage Mission Weekend for all those looking for action with missions all day Saturday and Sunday.

Mission Schedule - #1

Saturday- 1600GMT - Battle of Sissone - November 1916

Intel report: Recent Intelligence reports indicate that the Germans might prepare a counter attack after our failed offensive. A lot of troop movements have been spotted just behind their lines. French escadrilles stationed at Bonnemaison Ferme are operating from forward airfields at Vauxcere and Maizy. In a desperate attempt to prevent an immedaite counter attack, the scouts are ordered to strafe the enemy transports. German HQ is anxious to know what the state is of the French defences therefore a photo recon mission has been requested. If the recon is succesful, German bombers are to attack targets behind the French lines. How to complete a recon sortie: Take the special recon plane (Recon Plane 1) and fly to one of the endpoints of the recon area at the designated height (see map). Follow subtitles. You must land at an active airfield.

Mission objectives:

-Entente forces will attack enemy transports, vehicles, and trains.

-Central Forces will have to defend and recon the enemy lines.

Weather report: 5/8 cloud cover at 1200m. Hazy. Wind is 3-5 meters per second, from the West.

Mission #2 - Die Kaiserschlacht- March 29, 1918

Location: Front lines between Bapaume and Marchelepot, north of the Somme.

Mission objectives: Each side will have 6 primary targets to destroy, indicated by a flag on the map. Before a target becomes active, it has to be reconnoitered by making 10 photographs. The flag will then turn red. When a primary target has been destroyed, the flag will be removed from the map. Secundary targets are any vehicle, trains or tanks and balloons in enemy territory. When 2 (more) enemy targets are destroyed, new airfields will be activated with different plane types. -For photo recon missions only the designated planes "Recon" can trigger the photo sequence! -Photo recons need to land safely at an active base to complete their mission!

Winning conditions: Complete all six objectives first.

Weather report: Overcast with light rain, ceiling at 2000m. Wind 3-4 m/s, from the North.

Mission #3 - Armentieres - June 26, 1918

Location: Front lines south of Ypres, Flanders.

Intel: This scenario is based on actual events as described by the Jasta 40 Ace Carl Degelow in the book "Black Fokker Leader". (Highly recommended first hand account)

Mission objectives

Allies: 29 Squadron has orders to bomb German artillery before starting their Offensive Patrol over the lines. 79 Squadon will fly top cover. The DH4's of 25 squadron have as their primary target Lomme airfield and as a secundary target the enemy artillery batteries.

Central: Jasta 7 and 40 are ordered to intercept enemy aircraft crossing the lines as well as to protect their two-seaters. Schlasta 25 is ordered to attack ground targets of opportunity behind the lines.

Weather report: Cloud base at 1400m. Wind 2 meters per second, from the South West.

Sunday Mission Start - 1700 GMT

Bombers Channel - Summer September, 1917

Bombing Channel targets

Objectives: Destroy all targets, marked on the map by a RED flag. The side that destroys all targets first will win. Move over the target with the cursor to see a description of the target. Please note that the flag will disappear when the target(s) has been destroyed.

Weather: Wind is moderate (2-3 m/s), blowing from the West. Cloud base around 1000m. Some turbulence at lower altitudes.
