Can you change your line of approach to get around some of his patrols, some of you LR Fighters could enter via the Nederlands and still reach Belgian targets.
Also, are your Normandy bases capable of handling Bombers yet? You might get interesting angles from there as well.

I hate the sweepers going down to strafe, should be a setting which allows you to chose. I try to target RADAR for sweeps to keep away from FLAKtraps.

DAY 47
Mission List:

Yes I now have bomber Typhoon and Tempest flying from the normandy area. Most of the raids are up and down don't seem to be lossing as many to crashes returning to base does take a little longer to repair though.

At the moment I am trying to hit his standing patrols before the bombers run in. He has had some good luck latly.

Sharp eye's there JeffK had not noticed it myself

Football cards for auskick clinics is what takes up a lot of my time during football season. Funny how the wife has the weekend job but I seem to end up doing most of the work?

Mission Report:

Most Raids worked well, #9 got hit hard as the germans sent almost all his interceptors against them, they where not as under escorted as they looked. They had Tempests flying with them.

DAY 48 D-Day +14
His troops have me bottled up in normandy. I really need to do some damage to get the troops to start falling back to their next defence line.

After his tactic of sending most of his fighters against my FB yesterday I am going to set a trap for him if he does it again today. I have two FB raids heading for the same targets they had yesterday. What I hope he does not notice is that each raid has only 1 FB group and a heap of fighters along for the ride.

BC is heading to hasselt with the lancasters new rail target that just happens to have a panzer troop sitting there

Heavys and mediums hitting troops along the coast. My bombing has been very poor lately and with about 1/2 my heavys grounded. I hope this raid works better

Sack Monty, or Bradley or Ike!!!

IMVHO, your 4E bombers havent suffered a lot.

Is now the time to use them to blast the German front line?
(Now I read your mission list )

You probably havent done too badly compared to real life.

The onrush of the American tanks
With the Operation Cobra, launched on 25 July, the Allied Forces broke through the German Normandy front, west of Saint-Lô. On 29 July, Coutances was taken and American armoured divisions rushed southward. The Germans attempted to reconstitute a new front, but there was a lack of troops, and the defence lines were driven from the field by the Americans. In the meantime the 2nd and 3rd Armoured Divisions trapped 7,000 German soldiers in a pocket in Roncey. 2,500 men will manage to withdraw westward until the evening of 29 July. The next day, the Combat Command B of the 4th Armoured Division was in front of Avranches. The American tanks entered the city, cleared off by the Germans on 31 July.


This is the time line I am looking at the moment. Something should happen by the 22nd July as my invasion was 3 days early. It is currently the 17th of June so there could be another 30+ days locked in normandy.

AC Lost:
Most of my losses came from AA while my FS had a little success. My FB's going in at 500 did a lot more damage than when they start their attacks from 8000+. They hit stuff on the ground not just uped the disruption, they destroyed about 20 pz IV tanks this turn.

Raid Map:

light day again today a few FB raids flying with the best of the best fighter cover.

My main mission today is to jump his patrol, over the past few days he has been putting a patrol of a few Staffels in the area of the green circle. My Plan is to put enough planes into the air to get this patrol up and then sweep that area with my best 2 P-51D FG, lead at 24500 and its cover at 29500 hopefully he will be there
