Battle of Britain: Adlertag, 2ed Realism event AAR!

65 posts in this topic

In the first run the hurris to the south ran into some heavy escorts/bombers at a low altitude, getting multiple confirmed kills on both 11s and 109s.

I don't know whether the second round was 'official' or not but it was VERY intense and fun. For those who logged what happened is we had 7 spits and 4 hurris in the second round in different locations, and the axis had a very large force coming as one flight. The hurris rtbd and respawned as spits to intercept with the other 7. We came to a HUGE squadron of bombers and escorts that vastly outnumbered our little fight of 11. We engaged, getting multiple kills in the most intense air combat I'd ever taken part in. Was great fun, imo more realistic to the actual Battle of Britain in that we intercepted a large, outnumbering force directly over the channel.

Yes PLEASE HAVE MORE EVENTS! AIR, GROUND, EVEN SEA! IT WAS GREAT FUN! Maybe develop landing craft and have an invasion, maybe even an alternate reality of Operation Sealion, the German plan to invade England.

vids coming later

Nice Video Greni good use of the Buzzard. Liked the tags also.

Only thing needs work is the editing and how some freaking way you cut out the 2 mins of the sing a long and started it in the middle with me!!! LMAO

Nice work, downloaded for keepsake. You just can't make that stuff up.

what did you use for the vids?

ps how did you do the panning shot did you taxi past them and look out to the side?

i use fraps, sony vegas, adobe after effects, and audacity. so far only fraps and vegas, it's still a work in progress.

for the panning shot, i spawned an inf and walked around. then i sped the footage up in vegas.

Here is my vid of 1st sortie. Was fun just wish we we're ready to go and didn't have to wait 40mins. The training server should have been setup ready but again it was not which sucked and cost a few people to miss the second run due to time constraints.

We had a lots of fun, many thanks to everyone who organised the event. Whould be great to see some more :-)

Btw What were the official results ?

In the first run our Spits could only get to 17k before we were bounced and we didnt see a single bomber but it seesm the southern raid got hit pretty hard.

Was the second round "unofficial" ? as we did actually find the bombers, though we only had 10 or 11 people who stayed on.

Even though you de-winged me 2ed run, it still counts! ;)

Call it "Adlertag Light."

That is a great compliment!

Making it feel like the real thing is the whole point, and comments like that are gold!

Some more polish is needed, but its getting to be just right.

Great vids - interesting to see it from the other side, and from an external view as well!

As for that singing... Well, as if we needed another reason to scramble and try to shoot them down. :D

My vid still needs some editage.

Great Video ..... whats your editing program?

thanks :)

i use sony vegas to edit.

i'm gonna redo it when i get some time. i have after effects also, so i'm gonna play with the lighting and filters, and add little touches like some screen shake when i'm shootin the tailgun.

i got tons of footage and just wanted to put something out quick.

have you tried the advanced video upload option?

it's java based and allows resuming the upload where it left off.

when you click upload, it's on the right hand side of the page.

Great vids!

My event consisted of waiting around the dispershal hut, playing chess, cricket, and talking to the chaps about what we will do after the war and the like...only to be rudely interputed by a bell and someone yelling "two sections scramble!"

After a long hard climb we saw a few high 109s, and as they came down we took evasive action and then...CTHL :mad:

I couldn't make the second run, so can we do it again soon!!
