10,000 Golden Eagles up for grabs in the first Historical Board Competition!

I made an imgur account specifficly to show you guys my picture. (taken in movie settings on a 1920x1080 moniter)

It tells me "you're not allowed to use that image extension on this community" when I try to put the picture directly on my forum post.

The picture is supposed to include one of the skins stated in the OP, also to put the image directly on the forum, you need to take the actual image link, (ending with .jpg) not the link to the page with the picture

Yup, you have to right-click on that image and click "show graphic" or "open in new tab" to get the direct link to the pic:

Tip to get the Mölders skin for the Bf 109 E-3  * play today's HB event Battle of Britain *

 

You only need to shoot down 8 Spitfire Mk I or Hurricane Mk I / Mk II there to get the 24 kills needed for the skin.

 

Yup, in HB 1 kill counts x3 towards skins.

 

And in normal Arcade / HB game you will never see so many Spitfire Mk I or Hurricane Mk I / Mk II.... ;)

Richard 'Dickie' Cork engaging with a formation of He-111's.

 

This image is straight from the game. Although incorrect in terms of the skins use, Cork flew with No.242 Squadron during the Battle of Britain as wingman to Douglas Bader, you can't currently get RAF vs Luftwaffe battles in HB, so this is the best I could do.

At 14:30 on 3rd June 1940 Werner Mölders shot down an allied fighter near Paris, probably a D.520 (his 36th victory).

 

This is my attempt to recreate that moment:

Unedited screenshot, I just used post-fx settings to get this look:

One of the most famous engagements he was involved in took place on 4 May 1943. Eight of Pokryshkin's Airacobras were directed by ground control towards a large group of enemy planes. Three whole squadrons of the obsolescent Junkers Ju 87 Stukas were being escorted by a geschwader of Bf-109s. Attacking from the sun, a pair of P-39s attacked the fighters while the remaining six dived through the bomber formation, repeating the attack twice using Pokryshkin's method of swapping dive directions. Twelve Stukas were claimed shot down, with Pokryshkin claiming five (he was officially credited with two). Later that same day he shot down another Bf.109.

 

This is my attempt to recreate that fight:

Interesting where did you find that saying May 4th, just curious, as I saw it as April 29th.

 

"In 1943, Pokryshkin was deployed to the Kuban region in southern Russia. There, he invented new fighter tactics against German Luftwaffe units. On April 29, 1943, eight P-39 Airacobra fighters, one of which he piloted, attacked three squadrons of Ju-87 Stuka dive bombers escorted by Bf-109 fighters. As many as 12 German aircraft were downed in this battle, with Pokryshkin shooting down 5 of them. He considered it his highest achievement that all of this was accomplished without the loss of a single one of his supporting aircraft."

Just curious as it seems we were trying to recreate the same thing. you got my +1  :salute:

We must think alike because I was going to do the same thing you did for the Molders shot but didn't get to it before you posted  :Ds

On August 11th Cork became the only pilot in the history of the Royal Navy to achieve ‘Ace in a day’ after shooting down a Messerschmitt 110, two Junkers 88s and two Savoia Marchetti 79s. The next day he took command of 880 NAS after the Commanding Officer, Lt Cdr Judd, was killed whilst attacking a Heinkel 111.

Cork achieved 5 air victories on one day during operation Pedestal, which was a British operation to get desperately needed supplies to the island of Malta August 1942...so I chose to take the screenshot over the port of Valetta - Malta. ;)

There is no easy answer to the question of how many kills Clostermann actually scored. As most of those who read this article will know, allied forces had different systems of crediting kills, which probably is one of the main factors in all the confusion about Clostermann's tally, since both the R.A.F. and the Free French Air Force were taking interest in Pierre's achievements.
Anyway, as a guideline, it appears to be useful to take a look at the British way of looking at things as well as to see what Clostermann himself has to say on this in "Le Grand Cirque":

In a quotation of the two DFC citations for Clostermann, which can be viewed on the internet under
http://koti.mbnet.fi/~jjuvonen/pilots_eng/cloclo_letter_eng.html
,
one can read that British officials acknowledged 23 kills. Clostermann adds in that article that he never asked for more than that.

In "Le Grand Cirque", in one section of the appendix, Clostermann's kills are listed differently. It all sums up to 33 air-to-air kills and 24+ ground kills, as well as 12 damaged and/or propables.

It seems there is no point in arguing on Clostermann's tally, as there will not be a definite answer. In the bibliography given at the end of this article, there are a few references that certainly shed an interesting light on this issue, though.

On December 20 when the Flying Tigers engaged in combat for the first time[4] during a raid by Hanoi-based Japanese aircraft on the Chinese city of Kunming. Ed provided the AVG with its first aerial victory and would later record the last in a long list of 23rd Fighter Group air-to-air kills.[5] In May 1942, he played a critical role in locating and attacking Japanese military columns attempting a push into China at the Salween River Gorge. This allowed the Chinese time to blow up a key bridge across the river, and the Japanese subsequently retreated into Burma. Rector was credited with having destroyed 10.5 Japanese aircraft in aerial combat during the war.

Wow! Great to see some more entries creeping in; the contest is back on! 

 

Just a quick pointer for Iznogoud: the picture you have for Dickie Cork is a famous picture of 242 Squadron but, unfortunately, Cork was not on the squadron at the time this photo was taken so is not one of the assembled pilots. Here's a link to a page with pictures of Cork, if it helps. It also has the 242 Sqn photo, even though he isn't in it!

 

http://www.n5490.org/Pilots/Cork/Cork.html

 

That aside, you've submitted some absolutely fantastic pictures, thank you very much!
