Greetings all.
I`v been hosting COOPs last night for good 4 hours i think and i gotta tell ya it was great! Nice crowd, very cool missions created by Korolov. I think i`m gonna stop hosting DF`s for some time and get into COOPs business.

Here is the real life scenaro of upcoming coops:

"Me and Haldeev are sitting in the cockpits of our LAGGs. Today were are guarding our airfield. Suddenly Anikanov appears and runs towards Haldeev`s plane screaming :

There they are comrade Haldeev! Flying over the water.

Who?

The Sturmoviks! You, Myasnikov and Kolberov are assigned to escort Sturmoviks on attack of the german airfield!

Who`s going to cover our airbase?

Not needed anymore. Fire up the engines!

Me and Haldeev are taking off while Myasnikov is still on the ground due to some engine failure.

Catching up with IL2s and taking our position in escort. 7 Sturmoviks are escorted by 4 I-16s and 2 Yak 1s. By looking at the numbers on fusulage of those planes we determine that those are army planes. Where are they going we have no idea and we couldn`t establish radio contact either. Haldeev says to me that army radio is working on different frequency then Baltic Fleet. This is odd... hmm.. we have same objectives but different frequencies... what`s the point of having a radio?

Near Red village we were intercepted by 12 ME-109s, Sturmoviks are staying on course to the target and Ishachki (I-16s) are following them and our group gets into the fight.
There are four of us... 2 army Yaks and me with Haldeev. We have no radio contact between our wings. I`m looking down, whole ground is on fire...where are the Sturmoviks? What are they doing...that we were not able to see. Four messers (109s) still took off after them. Eight other fighters are going after us.

After 20 minutes of fierced fighting none of the sides acheived anything and Yaks are starting to pull back, towards Leningrad. We are following them but Messershmids are like a bunch of bees following us and ready to sting any second. We are near Gorelovo, there is Leningrad i can reach it with my hand... and suddenly one of the Yaks catches on fire and starts falling down. We were not able to see if pilot bailed out or not. Nazies fighters changed their tactics and separated on two groups of four. One climbed up and took position above us and other was trying to get us into turnfight. One of the 109s is trying to take position on my tail, but i am making such a tight turn and ending up on his tail, enemy aircraft pulls up and climbs away.
"Didn`t work out bastard! Can`t take us in turnfight!"
But things were turning for the worse and only miracle could save us. And suddenly, from nowhere group of 6 I-153s (kings of the air) came to our resque!! Their rockets are scaring away germans and they are leaving. I am very tired and trying to catch my breath, very thursty too. Here is the airfield, come on plane...land already!!!
Climbing out of the cockpit and slowly, barerly moving my feet towards our "Fox hole" , Haldeev quietly following me.
- What a day - pronouces Haldeev and falls down on the "bed" (nari - wooden bed with grass matress)

He was laying there quietly for few minutes then said: we should find out if Sturmoviks made it home ok...
Right at this moment Anikeev walked into our fox hole and congradulated us on successfull mission. All sturmoviks came back home and pilots from the Yak survived, just got some burns... and on this note... i fell into deep sleep..

This a little fragment is taking from Memoirs of Hero of Soviet uninon, Cpt Kolverov. Fighter pilot of Baltic VVS. He flew from day one to end of 1943 on I-16, LAGG3, Mig3, Hurricane and La5F. 28 Enemy planes. Over 600 missions.

Here`s the COOP for you, based on this story. 7 Sturmoviks escorted by 4 I-16 + 2 Yak1s + 2 Lagg3s attacking airfield - 12 ME109s intercept. 6 Emils, 6 F2s. And additional 6 I-153

Korolov will be making this mission and i gotta tell you he is damn good at it. Also later on i`ll post scenario of second COOP based on 1943 Kuban which was taken from Pokrshkin`s memoirs.

All COOPs will be Full Difficulty + extern + speedbar + minimap. Everything else is ON. Will host some tonight starting at 11pm eastern time. I think i can handle 20 ppl, this is dedicated machine, i don`t play on it http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Kozhedub: In combat potential, the Yak-3, La-7 and La-9 fighters were indisputably superior to the Bf-109s and Fw-190s. But, as they say, no matter how good the violin may be, much depends on the violinist. I always felt respect for an enemy pilot whose plane I failed to down.

From Pokrishkins memoirs:
"Comesk (commander of escadrilia -12 fighters) Petrov told us about heavy fight that took place in the skies of Kuban 2 days earlier. They were in patrol flight near front lines. His group of 8 P-39s shot down and damaged 10 enemy planes but lost 3 pilots. Fight started when they were bounced by 2 pairs of ME-109 (G2). His wingman was shot down and couple of minutes later ME-109 in flames was spinning down to earth.
Few minutes later eight more 109s came from nowhere to help remaining 3. They dove on us in full force. Group evaded and shut down one more 109.

And right there i hear voice of Boris Glinka on the radio:

Wounded! Leaving the fight!

Later we found out that one of the shells exploaded in the cockpit wounding the pilot and damaging controls oh the plane. Trying to finish him off 4 Me109 went after him, but his wingman Sgt. Kudryashov deffends him from their first attack. Then nazi turn on him (Kudryashov) and set his plane on fire.
"I am on fire", last words of Kudryashov - and second later he rammed one of messersmidts.
Fierce explosion of two planes astonish enemy for a moment but just for the moment. Germans became especially agressive and their attacks resumed.
Plane of Lt. Shmatko cough fiew few minutes later and he did the same thing as Kudryashov, plunged into enemy fighter. Second taran had major impact on Luftwaffe fighters and they start leaving fight diving towards their positions. Even that they had absolute advantage in number of planes, they preferred to leave."

COOP:

Flight of 8 P-39N1s interecepts two groups of ME109-G2 (4 and 8)
Kuban 1943.

From Memoirs of HSS, Lugansky...

"At the end of the day our group of 12 La5s went on the escort of Sturmoviks. Our objective is big airbase Rogan, near Kharkov.

We reached our target when sun was settling down and red colors of landscape looked rather evil and scary. On the german airfield everyone was relaxing after long day and Ju88s were nicely lined up near the runway. Some surrounded by trucks with fuel and bombs, more likely getting ready for the night missions or maybe for tomorrow. Our Sturmoviks striked airfield with massive bomb attack from get-go. Explosiona, fire and black smoke covered the ground. I could see people running away from the planes, falling down and never getting up.
AAA was to late with defending fire and our IL2s already formed the circle and started to pound their targets with MG/Cannon fire and RS. We going after our IL2s and attacking planes on the runway.

While exiting my attack i noticed level of distruction on the base, exploading planes, communications, buildings, trucks... everything was on fire and pieces were flying around in the thick black smoke. It was unblelievable view!

When Sturmoviks were in their third attack over the target area flight of 20 Me-109s appeared, probably was called in by radio. We are getting on their way, that`s what we do, this is our job.

109s are all over our Sturmoviks, their attacks fierced and tactically correct. You can tell that those guys know what they doing and we are having hard time defending our bombers. But even then we managed to down 3 Me-109s disregarding the fact that it`s only 12 of us and 20 of them. But i can`t get out of my head the fact that we have to fly back home and fuel and ammo is accounted for. Each flight leader remebers that, us and germans... they know.
Situation started to get really complicated, trying to avoid attacking messers our Sturmoviks split up on two groups and started to turn for home. It was bad tactical desigion without a doubt. Sturmoviks just like fighters unstopable when they like one fist , favorite frase of our commander Soldatenkov.
But anyways, 4 Sturmoviks turned North-East and headed towards Urazovo and other group of 3 went along rail road tracks over Chuguevo on Kurpyansk. If if don`t cover them..Messers are going to shred them to pieces. We didn`t even wait for command, me, Lubenuk and Krivoe went after 3 Sturmoviks. Four 109s were in the beginning of attack on those 3 but we got on their way. Germans figured that they are not going to succeed and 109s pulled back. AAA Fire from the ground was kind of bothering us, we were on soviet territory but constant fire did not stop. Where is it coming from?? Maybe it`s our AAA units got confused? Then...maybe we got lost...i`m starting to hesitate. Flying over the rail road Kharkov-Kurpyansk, it is under control of our army but to the left and to the right of it enemy.

We are flying wing to wing with Sturmoviks, Krivov on the right side and lower and commander a little bit above me. Lubenuk changing course all the time, looking for enemy, he is above everybody and has full freedom of manuever. That gives him full vision of what`s going on in all directions.
I looked towards Krivov and my heart stopped... his plane started smoking and and losing altitude but staying on course.

Lubenuk broke radio silence..

- Krivov, what happened??

I am screaming too..

- Jump, jump!!! While you have altitude!!

We are waiting for any signs of the parachute... but plane flew over rail road and exploaded on impact with the ground...right in the front of our eyes...

Soon, anti-aircraft fire stopped and Sturmoviks turned left before Krupyansk headed toawards Urazovo and after reporting that one "little one" fell down near station Grakovo disappeared in the dark. Me and Lubenuk landed in the complete darkness, by heart".

Here`s the COOP mission.
8 Sturmoviks escorted by 12 La5F Attacking german airfield. 20 Me109 (10 G2, 10G6) intercept. Time of the day 6pm.
