Simulated Air Combat is a central hub whereby interested cyber pilots can survey and review several squadron enlistment options. The site uses the latest Combat Flight Simulation, IL-2 Battle of Stalingrad/Moscow as the gaming software of choice for immersing ourselves within the air combat over the Eastern Front. Without a doubt the most historic battlefront of all time and one of the most devastating considering the millions of casualties, both civilian and military, from all sides of the conflict.
Our purpose in flying this simulation is not from a gaming mindset per se, but with a sincere desire to experience as best we can what it must have been like to fly a fighter aircraft, heavy fighter,bomber or transport within the hostile skies over the Russian Front.
Luftwaffe Simulated Air Combat is comprised of our fighter wing, Staffel 4./JG52 and our heavy bomber wing, Staffel 5./ZG1. Both units complement each other and allow us to have control over our own ground attack unit for accomplishing mission objectives without having to rely on other OKL units.
In addition we have founded the 2./JG51 Staffel, which is a dedicated FW-190 unit taking advantage of the FW-190 A5 which is to be released soon with the upcoming Battle of the Kuban series of IL-2. We just couldn't let this important addition to the Luftwaffe fighting element not be a part of Luftwaffe Simulated Air Combat.
In sharing communication and tactically focusing on specific mission objectives and training techniques the entire online Luftwaffe can become a more effective fighting force. Of course our mutual interest in the aircraft, men and organization of the Luftwaffe throughout WWII is the glue that binds us together
All of the units represented here use authentic historical combat tactics and fly to survive in addition to accomplishing our mission objectives. There are no independent pilots flying strictly for their personal glory. This is a team concept using historic formation and fighter tactics to accomplish our mission objectives.
We've found that the best indicator of a truly great air combat simulation is that our tactics actually correspond to the historical strengths and weaknesses of the various aircraft we fly. If you'd like to participate in our online battles please consider signing up with one of the units represented here.
If you're new, we can work with you, and if your better than us, well you can work with us.
It's a win, win for everyone!
