So far I've picked up the usual suspects : Iron Cross 2nd and 1st class and German Cross in Gold. Are there any others ? What do you do to get them ?

Knights Cross - with oak leaves, swords, diamonds and so on...

"Feb 16 1978:

The first computer bulletin board system goes live on an S-100 motherboard and CP/M, and a Hayes 300 baud modem. Ward Christensen and Randy Seuss's Computerized Bulletin Board System still kinda runs to this day, but the Internet has taken the place that BBS's used to have.

And this is why you have no social life, loser. "

How does one gain these ? I got the first three really quickly, then, nothing for ages.

I've flown some rather good missions IMO; the mission I just flew I took out four LaGG-3 S4's and one La-5, in late 1942, with a bf-109G2. Previous mission I bagged two IL-2's, one I-16 and one Pe-2 ... admittedly these were both exceptional missions for me.

So what do you have to do to get these other medals ? Fly a certain number of missions ? Shoot a certain number of planes ? What's the story ? Go even harder in a single mission than I've ever gone before ?

There are two ways of earning a Knights Cross:

1) Go kill 400 enemy planes. Then fly alone above Moscow and try to snipe Stalin with a stolen Hurricane I. Get dead, and then, maybe, only maybe someone will talk about you before the F├╝hrer and you'll get your medal.

2) Be a friend of G├┬Âring. Watch his stolen pictures. Attend his parties and admire his taste for decoration and dressing. Listen patiently to his stories about how he was a great WW1 fighter ace, and how he replaced Richthofen as the leader of Jasta 1. Go flatter G├┬Âbbels and tell him how smart and clever he looks. Then get him to promote you as a propaganda star. Get him to praise in the cover every real or fictious sortie you make. And enjoy your medal!

Thanks Dux for your err alternative paths to heroic fame.

On a more mundane note, the AI pilots and I got our knight's cross at sixty victories.
