Does the one-way flight from Kronshtadt to Tallin the longest of this game?

Anyone of you has done this campaign or any other?

In August 1941, my squadron of Lagg-3s had to move from Kronshtadt to Tallinn.

A flight of 1 hour 15 min.including a short dogfight over the sea. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

The campaign is dynamic, you see. The missions are generated as you progress through the campaign depending on many factors meaning no two people have played the same campaign. As for the long flight, try using autopilot and time compression.

Yes, I am just wrapping up my Leningrad campaign now. I really loved it. My second mission was a dusk/night fighter sweep over Finland. I had to use my landing light to land. At least I THINK it helped http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

The best part of that mission was making a B239 disintegrate over Finland just as dusk turned to night, at 50 meters altitude. It was almost impossible to tell the differnce between ground and sky if I was facing east, let alone the range to target if I could SEE a target. There were about a dozen Yaks, my 4 La-5s, and about a dozen B239s milling about. Flaming that Brewster was my greatest FB moment ever. I felt I could actually play the sim at long last. Flying back with the cockpit lights on was an "oooh, ahhhh" moment, it looked so good.

I flew a mission that was almost two hours, but I used autopilot and time compression to get there and fly cover for a simulated hour and 15 minutes or whatever time we flew out patrol for. Something like 92 waypoints http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif There were so many waypoints in a triangle over the area to protect from German bombers, the numbers for the waypoints were just black blocks, I thought my video card had screwed up until I noticed waypoint 58 or so off by itself. I brought some droptanks on that flight! But the distance was not very great at all.

PS
I hated leaving Krohnstadt. I landed there whenever I could, just because I liked the base and it was easy to find http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

In nearly one year, it's only the second campaign I've seriously started and even if the campaigns are dynamic I doubt to be the only one with long flight missions like the one described. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif


And I know that I can make,if I want, long flights with FMB or QMB. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Glad to know, since I've never used time compression, I think I should prepare myself to some more long flights. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I agree with you the Baltic theater is great and I've got a new interest in FB. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_cool.gif
