Not sure if this is the correct sub forum for this but what the hell.
Good afternoon and salute!
I am writing this to you as a representative of the IL-2 Sturmovik: 1946 squadron, the American Volunteer Group or the =AVG=.
We would like to invite your squadron to a multiple squadron based “mini-campaign” for a week long, 24/7 war starting Sunday, 6 June 2010. Since this is a 24/7 campaign with tons of surface/ground and aerial action, there will be something for everybody no matter the time of day/night or week. Naturally separate scores would be tracked for the campaign, missions and individual pilots. Our server’s scoring program requires each participating pilot to be registered. Registration is simple and details are below.
This Wings~of~War campaign coincides with the anniversary of the D-Day beach landings along Normandy. This is custom built Normandy 1944 campaign with several hundred ground targets. This begins with a massive Allied amphibious assault followed by the ground war. Can the Axis turn the Allies back into the sea? Lots of fun, dangerous stuff no matter the side you fly.
At the end of the campaign, we’ll take a week off. Then we’ll switch sides and play another round that we call the WoW Redoux.
If you have a sister squadron that would also like to be involved, please pass this along to them as well. While any interested squadron or independent pilot is welcome to join, this is a registration required event. All they have to do is complete the simple registration form.
Here is a link to the Wings~of~War; Normandy 1944 campaign format and at the bottom is the registration form.http://www.virtualaces.net/phpBB3/registration.php
Thank you very much for your time and we look forward to seeing you in the skies!!!

Wings~of~War is a continuous 24 hour, 7 day dynamic campaign for IL-2 Sturmovik: 1946 using the Ultra Pack 2.01, on a bundled T-1 connection using FB Daemon II (FBD2) and Lowengrin's Dynamic Campaign Generator (DCG). The Wings~of~War Server will go online at 00:01 hours; 12:01 a.m. Eastern on Sunday, 6 June 2010, and will go offline at 00:01 hours; 12:01 a.m. Eastern the following Sunday, 13 June 2010. The server will reset every two hours to keep the Wings~of~War generated mission objectives current and up to date. A two hour session will equal one campaign day. At the end of the one week period we will tally the scores to determine the victor.
The victory conditions and objectives for each battle are determined by the mission generator. The briefing will contain reports of conflicts in various areas of the map. You will need to fly in defense of your ground units as they will be attacked by enemy on the ground and in the air. Reports of the previous day's activity will be displayed along with the mission briefing.
1.) Each participant must be registered for the event.
2.) There will be a limit of 30 pilots per side in the server at any one time.
3.) All pilots will fly with the appropriate markings.
4.) Any pilot found to be cheating (flying hacked, exiting the server to avoid a death, etc.) will be banned for the remainder of the campaign.
Points are awarded depending upon what happens to the plane that you shoot at in each combat. Points are awarded differently based on what happens to the enemy aircraft that you targeted and whether it is destroyed in the air, force-lands, crash lands at a friendly base or another aircraft intercepts it on its return journey to base. The last plane to shoot into the enemy aircraft will be awarded the kill points. If ground units also hit the target and no air hits were achieved the ground unit is regarded as the killing unit. If the targeted plane does not disintegrate but lands successfully the score is ignored. Pressing "Re-Fly" adds the points achieved in the last sortie to the score.
Scoring is based on the default values for targets. A list of target values can be found here; Target Values. You must survive and return to base to get 100% of your score. If you are forced to land outside of the boundaries of an allied airbase you will be awarded 70% of your score. You will be awarded 50% of your score if you bail out over friendly territory. You will not be awarded any of your score if you are captured or die in combat.
Sit Out Times
The Wings~of~War Server is set up to govern itself meaning that the sit out times, aircraft ordnance load outs, etc., are handled by the Dynamic Campaign Generator and FB Daemon II. If you bail out over friendly territory you can re-fly immediately. If you bail out over enemy lines you have a 1 in 10 chance of escape.
Death/Capture Penalty: 15 minutes (approximately)
