Holding The Red Wave - Stavka Strikes Back Campaign

Post by BlackDog » Tue May 14, 2019 4:22 pm

Aside from the performance issues faced by many, this was one of the most epic missions of the BoX Campaign to date in my personal opinion....

The date is 6th of December 1941... the Russians are pushing the Axis forces back, but the Luftwaffe around Klin are fighting hard to hold the Reds at bay! Below is a photo journal of the mission involving 15.Span JG27 (E7's) 11.JG51 (F2's) and 4.ZG26 (110's).

The mission had some lag...then a lot of Laggs... more on that later!

15.Span had their first near bombing target, a full armoured division was pushing South toward Voronino. So they headed off, with a strong 10 ship formation after previous weeks of decimation....

Image

The targets are found and the attack begins....

Image

Image

The Horror...the horror....
Image

Image

Image

Image

Smells like BBQ around here.....
Image

Friendly positions spotted on the RTB.....now with less chance of being overun!
Image

Arriving back into a busy pattern with 4.ZG26 taking off to their target sortie.....
Image

15.Span was then tasked with another bombing sortie..... however despite extensive searches of the grid sector given, no targets were spotted... at this time we were given news that the 110's were being engaged back at Klin airfield and Freya ordered 15.Span back to assist in defending the airfield....

We arrived to join into one of the largest and best air battles seen yet in the campaign! P40's, Mig3's and Laggs against 110's E7's and F2's...game on...

Image

Image

Image

15.Span into the fight quickly... Crabby going evasive..
Image

Boyezee getting to grips with his new E7..
Image

Image

Image

Krass joins his wingman and its just like old times....
Image

Krass delivers the killer punch....
Image

Flyby and Black16 attacking Red31
Image

Image

Image

Lee is the only one from 15.Span to take damage but lands safely back at Klin and watches the huge dogfight overhead...
Image

Image

Image

Red25 is done... and makes a run for it... but he won't get far...
Image

Red31 now has a 'Mezza' on his tail....
Image

Image

Image

Splash two.......
Image

Meanwhile.... Black14 is enjoying some rays.... eating some cheese....drinking some wine! What an Oddball!! Wondering what all the radio chatter is about...
Image

back beneath the clouds... the fight is still on...
Image

BD watches as Black2 goes completely 'Animalmother' on Red7
Image

Relentless...
Image

Image

and another pass.... brutality.....
Image

and that pass causes Red7 to begin to break up....
Image

Savage attack.....
Image

Horrido....
Image

Fair play sir... a broken man.... but still breathing!! Salute!!!
Image

Red 50 now up for a schlacking next by an F2.....
Image

BD see's the deadstick pilot and waives off further attacks... good luck sir....
Image

Red 25 now down...shoots a flare to his colleague in the Red50 glider...
Image

Image

Confirmed down...stalked by a 109 up high....
Image

15.Span returns to base with 9 aircraft and Lee earlier, meaning for the first mission in a long time, all pilots returned home safe... with some F2's coming for a warm Schnapps in the Officers mess...for a job well done!!
Image

Image

The RED Wave.... Held!!!!

Ah that was you assholes then! :salute: for not shooting me while dead stick (Red 50). I managed to get good hits into one of you so assume that was Lee.
