Does anyone remember the War Stories from Ian Boys when FB was still in Beta? With AEP coming soon I thought I could do one again. You can see the result here:

War Story - Channel Combat 1942 (http://www.il2sturmovik.de/fb_warstory_uk.htm)

But beware! It's very big with almost 1MB of pictures. And yes I am an official Betatester and have Olegs permission. Enjoy!

EDIT: Story now hosted @UBI for traffic reasons. Thanks! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

That is a damn good story...very well written. You did a good job of capturing that simple and believable style common from writings of that period. The embellishments about the living conditions, falling asleep in the cockpit and other little touches are great.

Very nice and thanks for posting it, I really enjoyed, felt kind of like I was reading an account of the real thing.

Good Story. Cant wait to get me hands on the expansion. Even though I am not good at dogfighting, this game keeps getting better and better.

Hehe, attempt to quelle the Fw-190 fans who think it has no chance against a Spitfire cause it's undermodeled? Either way, what a *****in' war story. I love it when you make these things. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

How do you csThor appreciate chance Fw 190 A-4 to win fight with Spit MkV in Fb? As i know Fw 190 in real was faster, better dive, zoom climb, roll and climb, Spit was better in turn. Besides Fw190 A-4 now in fb has hard fight with VVS planes like lagg3, yak1 dont speak about la5.

Really enjoyed the story. With skins, mission creation, and now stories...there is a little creativity in this group.

Kozhedub: In combat potential, the Yak-3, La-7 and La-9 fighters were indisputably superior to the Bf-109s and Fw-190s. But, as they say, no matter how good the violin may be, much depends on the violinist. I always felt respect for an enemy pilot whose plane I failed to down.

Fantastic story!

Where did the A-4 skin come from? Is that part of AEP or the Europe expansion that just came out?

I made them specifically for that Story. It's a alteration of one of my previous skins which was updated with a better weathering and a few other changes.

Good story,nice work
The pictures and layout remind me of old hand drawn color air plane books I had when I was a kid. The books were printed on like the paper used in art class coarse and tan color.
Showing the air planes of the 2ndWW.
Maybe these computers really can do some thing decent.

Those Spits look brilliant!!!!

somehow the Graphics look better/more detailed/smoother, have they been improved??
Or are the pics just compressed
