[SB Event] The Battle For Europe Joint-Ops Historical Simulator Campaign.

Allied Forces High Command, and our Partnered Squadrons would like to invite Squads & Individuals to our largest and most exciting player created campaign ever to be held in War Thunder!

 

 

A Fully Immersive Role-play Experience comprised of large Combined Arms battles, as well as air and ground specific missions. Unique elements such as No HUD navigation for air units, Custom made maps and objectives for ground combatants, Multilayered combined ops missions, and to top it all off: A Create-a-Character program that will increase immersiveness and allow you to track your Stats as the campaign progresses.

AFHC Squadron has a long history of running numerous, well crafted, and historically accurate in-squadron Mil-Sim Campaigns - which allows us to be confident that we know how to run something on this kind of scale.

This campaign will be concurrently running for both North American & European time zones, however; non EU/US players are welcome to participate. This means one big campaign with specialized missions for each time slot, that will keep things interesting no matter when you play! (depending on slots, some crossover will be allowed).

 

Allied NA players will take the role of U.S. combatants in the USAAF and U.S. Army.

Allied EU players will take the role of U.K. combatants in the RAF and RAC.

 

Axis NA & EU players will take the role of German combatants in the Luftwaffe and wehrmacht.


 

The Battle For Europe

The campaign will begin in Summer of 1943 with the preparations for D-Day, in the skies of the English Channel and conquered France.

At this stage NA-Time players will participate in daytime, long range, strategic bombing, escort, and interception missions. While the EU-Time players will predominantly see some night bombing and fighting, among various other types of missions.

Once Mid-1944 rolls around, the multiple stage missions for D-day will begin. Air units will take the lead and will battle over clearing of the beachheads, and support of ships during the landings. Then ground troops will take their part, in the fight for the securing a foothold.

From this point onwards tanks will see extensive action, along with close air support, that will go all the way from Normandy to the heart of the Reich in Berlin.

 

VE Day, 1945 will mark the end of the campaign. Though we will follow the historical defeat of Germany, Axis Forces could still prove themselves through stunning service and combat history.


 

How will it be run?

  • The Battle For Europe Campaign will begin July 8th, 2017.
    • The actual length of the Campaign will be determined by how many missions are able to be completed each Saturday session, and could last up to a year if we take it extremely slowly.
    • Participants will meet for the Campaign Every Saturday at 19:45 BST for EU and 19:45 EST for NA. - We will have a short briefing before the beginning of each mission; once the briefing is complete and a mission has started No additional personal will be allowed to join that particular mission. Late arrivals will have to wait for the following mission for the day, or; if late enough, will just have to make sure they're on time the following week.
    • Attendance for every session will not be mandatory, but continuous absences will impact your rank and place in the leader-boards.

 

  • This Campaign is open to everyone who is interested, you do not have to join a particular squadron in order to participate.
    • Individual players will not have to join AFHC, or any squadron for that matter, in order to participate in the campaign. Registration is now open! Individuals will sign up for their preferred roles and then be assigned accordingly on Training & Mission days.
    • Squadrons who join the Campaign will have to go through the same sign up process as individuals, but will be able to take on greater roles. We would recommend interested squads have their administration contact ours.
    • Any individuals or groups who choose to ruin the experience of other participants will be immediately booted from the campaign, we have Zero tolerance to people who are unwilling to follow along with the basic rules we've put forth. 

 

  • Registration is now open, when registering, you will be able to specify what kind of vehicles you'd be interested in operating (Fighters/Attackers/Bombers/Tanks) as well as what Faction you you will be on (Allies or Axis). Once you choose a Faction, you will not be able to change out of that team for the rest of the campaign.
    • Our research team will compose a list of every mission in the campaign - Every mission will have the most historically accurate locations, objectives, and operational vehicles as possible - This means that vehicles, compositions, and ratio assignments will change on a battle to battle basis (all on the Squad and Company levels for air and ground). You will be notified exactly what vehicle you will need for every mission ahead of time. We created a rudimentary vehicle list that we will be updating in the next few weeks - If there are vehicles you believe are missing from the list, Please notify us on our Campaign site.

  • For personnel who are interested in playing but do not much knowledge of the simulation environment, where in other players will be operating together in squads/platoons and moving in formations, we will be running open training courses!
    • Before and After the campaign begins, we will run open-to-all fighter and bomber training schools for participants who do not have much experience in working as part of a large group in a simulation setting. These are mandatory, personnel who cannot prove that they know what they're doing during operation times will not be allowed to participate in the Campaign.
    • A tanking school will begin closer to when D-day operations are due to start. 

 

*As our Squadron’s name suggests, AFHC is mainly an Allied group, therefore we are looking for a dedicated group to take the Axis side of things - individuals could choose to be in either side of the conflict but we do want a balanced assortment of players on both sides.

 


Registration is now open, simply follow the Instructions on the Right of the Main Page and you'll be prepared for 

The Battle for Europe: battle-for-europe.clansweb.us/

 

This Campaign will Launch July 8th and is being finalized, you can be a part of this great project!

Some internal personnel, and we've comissioned some map makers from WT live.

 

We're always open to have additional maps made if you're interested! :)

Hello guys, very interesting project. As a full simulator squadron, we are interested in this but we have a few doubts. What is the state of the project?? How are going to be the battles? Size, objectives... etc. Have you tested the missions?

Hello Beral, to answer your questions:

As for the State of the project:

On 3/23/2017 at 8:12 PM, TheFroman said:

This Campaign is in the final planning stages now

 

We are currently working on finalizing our research, deciding exactly which regiments, flights, and divisions we'll be following for each side. Besides that, we do have additional maps and missions in the works which will be done in the next few weeks. PR and event recruiting is really the bulk of what remains for us in the next couple of months.

How are going to be the battles?


Not sure what you mean by this but each nation will have different missions for air, ground and combined arms - it's a long list of similar missions and a long list of very different missions that will span from France to Germany.

 

52 minutes ago, Beral said:

Size, objectives... etc. Have you tested the missions? 

It really depends on the mission we are running that week, Some of the maps are very big and some of the maps are normal sized - as for objectives, those will also change depending on the map size, location, time in historical reference, results of previous missions and many more aspects of how events are unfolding. All the missions and maps we have thus far have been fully tested.

If you would like us to elaborate even further, I invite you to PM me or join our TeamSpeak ( 69.65.49.248:10847 ) and I'll address any questions or concerns you might have! :)

I'd love to join in on the fun! Only problem is, for me, that the lack of Attacker and Dive bomber aircraft and the limited aircraft choices. In your armoured divisions, choices are more ranged. I do hope you'll expand on attacker-like roles, as it's a very over-looked role for most and my skills would be wasted if not piloting an A-20, Ju 87, or similar aircraft.
