I am hoping someone has already made this - so I don't have to. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Now as to what I consider authentic are the following qualities.

1. Appropriate interception altitude. (Between 23000-25000 feet.)

2. The right number of escorting fighters for the Bombers. (That means lots of them! The intercepting Luftwaffe planes should be heavily outnumbered and have to fight their way past the escorts.)

3. Proper formation - not only of the Bombers, but also of the escorts. This means the right spacing, and altitude separation.

4. A ground start for the Luftwaffe, so that they have to fight their way up and have a chance to run out of fuel, or at least be made aware of it.

I have found some that are close, but nothing that incorporates all these important qualities.

Here's hoping someone has something like this already. Fingers crossed.

Why not make a mission yourself http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Here is some info on the spacing and formation

Flying a heavy Anton or Messerschmitt with gunpods is no joy up there http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/disagree.gif

Hmmm...I tried to do 250 LW fighter intercepting 800 B-17s escorted by 500 P-51s, but, when I tried to load the mission, my PC told me to pi$$ off.

I'll be modifing an exisiting mission file I downloaded quite a while back. I'm currently doing research. I'll keep you posted.

Arther is my hero!

You should see what he has in mind... it is quite impressive. I hope my computer does not melt like Faustniks did.

I had a 70 B-29 Mission over Nagasaki at 31000ft with J3M5 intercpting ... let say it lag too much to even play

I tried a full blown Uberdeamon Battle of Brit once: it was a slide show. And after 6 or so slides, &gt;C R A S H !&lt;

Widdled it down to 12 v 12 which seemed playable. BUT; for a moment- how glorious to fly through a CLOUD of bombers; guns blazing; knowing that you had to be hitting something on chance on average at least http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Go to jojimbo's "B17 Bomber Intercept", Waldo.Pepper. I find it quite a satisfying little crunch. Hit the Forts head-on or their massed gunfire will tear you to pieces.
