Commander Stormwolf -> Eastern Front ~ Soviets Fight Back (11/20/2009 6:25:15 PM)

Greetings,

This shall be an AAR of the War In Russia Mod campaign ~ SW Mod WIR 1.3

Comrade Stormwolf is pitted against the Norwegian General in the OKH.

House Rules have been created:
- Soviet Air force Units may fly recon + CAP on the first turn
- Soviet Air force units are not allowed to fly strike missions on the first turn (due to political factors {not to appear as the aggressor in world opinion} and communications delays from STAVKA to regional commands


Soviet Air force units have been updated to include the correct number and types of operational aircraft on June 22, 1941 including the correct percentage of types serviceable

*adjustments

-The majority of soviet air force units have been withdrawn behind the rivers dvina and dniepr to prevent their destruction on the ground. Those unserviceable have been placed on railway cars and withdrawn (soviets were aware of the german attack date and the destruction of the air force could have been avoided by such a move)

- The number of german replacement airframes and pilots has been increased (if a heavy toll was exacted on the Eastern Front, aircraft from Europe and the Mediterranean could have been diverted)


- The aircraft stats have been corrected based on accurate historical data

Commander Stormwolf -> RE: Eastern Front ~ Soviets Fight Back (11/20/2009 6:46:11 PM)

June 22, 1941

The Expected German Betrayal ~ The Great Patriotic War Begins

----------------------------
Flash - STAVKA to all Regional VVS Commands:

Initiate Operation Rattrap: Interception of German bombing raids with I-16 "Rata" Aircraft

As instructed, I-16 Rata Fighters have been transferred overnight to critical airbases and port facilities. It is expected that german intelligence is aware of the vacuum of fighter presence in those locations and long distance unescorted strikes are expected against the ports of Sevastopol and Leningrad as well as major airbases west of the Dvina river. It is essential that these raids are attacked on the inbound leg as the fighters' horizontal speed is slower than the Junkers and Heinkell bomber aircraft without payload. In addition damage to ships and installations must be kept to an absolute minimum, and it is expected that all contested airfields shall be made operational within 24 hours of these strikes. Failures shall not be tolerated.

It appears that sections of the border of peace have been pierced by axis armoured columns.
In addition a large number of aerial sorties has been launched against fortified positions and airbases along the border. These were intercepted with some success due to the skilled implementation of Operation: Rattrap

Assesment of Enemy Fighter Force

BF-109F

Classification: Fighter

Strengths:

- high top speed
- good maneuverability
- excellent rate of climb

Weaknesses:
- mediocre armament
- mediocre range

Expected Use:

Primary air superiority fighter used in both offensive and defensive roles close to the front line.
Will actively seek battle with soviet aircraft.


Suggested Tactics:

Engage with superior numbers from a position of tactical advantage.
Can be matched in horizontal maneuvers by Yak-1 fighters and exceeded by I-16s.
Drawing enemy forces to low altitude and utilizing mixed forces of Yak and Mig fighters may also prove effective.




Estimated Inventory: 1100

Weaknesses:

- mediocre maneuverability
- mediocre top speed
- limited range



Expected Use:

Used extensively in battle of Britain. Expected to be relegated to defensive roles protecting airfields close to the front line.


Suggested Tactics:

Aircraft is less maneuverable than most Soviet fighters.
Classical evasions such as the immelman loop and lufberry circle will prove effective. Avoid head on attacks and maintain high altitude.


Estimated Inventory: 900

Suffered heavy losses at battle of Britain in the escort role. Expected to be relegated to defence of rear industrial areas.


Suggested Tactics:

Aircraft can be out-maneuvered with ease. Aircraft is out-classed by the soviet PE-3 fighter.
Disrupt and separate enemy formations and prevent interception of friendly bomber forces.
Attack from the rear with extended bursts. Aim for crew compartment, wing root and engine nacelles.
Aircraft is large and vulnerable. Avoid head on passes.

use in offensive operations in the Crimean Front. At present has not been approved for export to germany or axis allies. May be used in combination with other aircraft variants supplied to the Romanian Air force to compensate for deficiencies.


Suggested Tactics:

Aircraft is outclassed by all soviet fighters. Strengths of your soviet aircraft should be emphasized and the enemy engaged on your own terms. Aircraft is vulnerable to damage and has a poor turning radius. Be aware of mixed aircraft types in the formation.

ORIGINAL: cantona2

Is this with the Witp or AE engine?


Witp (look the lack of Manouver/altitude in the aircrafts screen




Commander Stormwolf -> RE: Eastern Front ~ Soviets Fight Back (11/20/2009 10:45:44 PM)

Greetings,

This is a derivative of the WIR mod made for WITP1.

It has however been heavily modified in terms of land and air combat,
including the map which is based on 40-mile hexes.

In reality this game has more in common with WITP-AE than WITP vanilla
and should be posted in this forum. The last few details are being resolved
in this campaign before a release for WITP-AE is made.

The differences in naval combat are immaterial as this is an air-land war -->
and most importantly, It must be kept where there is most activity to facilitate
the mtrix staff to make a separate European-Theater title based on the WITP engine. [8D]
