I've recently resumed one of my campaigns and I've begun to wonder how many more missions I have to complete in order to receive a promotion. I know that during the war German pilots would complete hundreds of sorties before receiving a promotion, but since the DCG generates only one mission a day, how long does it take on average to receive them? Usually it's about 50 for me, but it might be different for others; I'm just curious. Thanks!

50!!! Well it depends on your performance. I usually get promoted within 10 missions.(Full Real, fighter) and about 7 missions(Full Real, fighter-bomber, 110, Stuka).

its your total performance .. ground kills + air kills + sucseesful missions + hidden targets + missions completed that give you a score that leads to promotion ..

naturally bomber kills are worth more points than fighter- i suspect the scoring is pretty similiar to the online points for kills

until you reach major or equivalent promotion only changes your position in the squadron but major allows you to reconfigure your plane and sometimes those in your immediate section with different weapons

i ususally reach major by 70 or 80 missions (externals, map and icons on) and that is with pretty ordinary kill rates (about 84 missions and only 45 or so kills last time)
