Getting to grips with Crimea 1942 campaign in an F2. FBv1.0. So far after about 10 missions we have been living off handouts from other squadrons. Myself and my wingman seem to be the only people left since the start of the fighting. Losses on my IL2 Leningrad campaign are less severe!

Has this been improved on in 1.1b? If so i suppose this should be disregarded... Just had to know, as i'm getting really frustrated! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

P.s to those who helped me out with Luftwaffe tactics (michapma) - thanks. Working out really well now.

I hope so too. I heard horror stories of the pre patch campaign mode. I have just started a pilot career in FB 1.1b. "The invasion begins" The first mission was easy 8 109f2s vs 3 Mig 3s which were promply shot down by my Schwarm. I had to disregard orders and fly home as I was almost out of fuel. But other than that, It was pretty real. No losses on our side. One bf had to land at an emergency strip. I am hoping the rest of the campaign is as realistic.

Pre patch dynamic campaigns were almost unplayable. I remember threatening to hurl my keyboard out the window because I had been jumped again and again by 12 I-16s in my group of 4 109s within a period of 2 minutes. I've been flying mostly online and doing alot of Quick Missions in preparation for the real patch when I can finally play the campaigns we were promised.

the Finnish campaigns still suck horribly though, hopefully this will be addressed in the next patch too.
