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.

Here is the real life scenaro of upcoming coops:

"Me and Haldeev are sitting in the cockpits of our LAGGs. Today were are guarding our airfield. Suddenly Anikanov appears and runs towards Haldeev`s plane screaming :

There they are comrade Haldeev! Flying over the water.

Who?

The Sturmoviks! You, Myasnikov and Kolberov are assigned to escort Sturmoviks on attack of the german airfield!

Who`s going to cover our airbase?

Not needed anymore. Fire up the engines!

Me and Haldeev are taking off while Myasnikov is still on the ground due to some engine failure.

Catching up with IL2s and taking our position in escort. 7 Sturmoviks are escorted by 4 I-16s and 2 Yak 1s. By looking at the numbers on fusulage of those planes we determine that those are army planes. Where are they going we have no idea and we couldn`t establish radio contact either. Haldeev says to me that army radio is working on different frequency then Baltic Fleet. This is odd... hmm.. we have same objectives but different frequencies... what`s the point of having a radio?

Near Red village we were intercepted by 12 ME-109s, Sturmoviks are staying on course to the target and Ishachki (I-16s) are following them and our group gets into the fight.
There are four of us... 2 army Yaks and me with Haldeev. We have no radio contact between our wings. I`m looking down, whole ground is on fire...where are the Sturmoviks? What are they doing...that we were not able to see. Four messers (109s) still took off after them. Eight other fighters are going after us.

After 20 minutes of fierced fighting none of the sides acheived anything and Yaks are starting to pull back, towards Leningrad. We are following them but Messershmids are like a bunch of bees following us and ready to sting any second. We are near Gorelovo, there is Leningrad i can reach it with my hand... and suddenly one of the Yaks catches on fire and starts falling down. We were not able to see if pilot bailed out or not. Nazies fighters changed their tactics and separated on two groups of four. One climbed up and took position above us and other was trying to get us into turnfight. One of the 109s is trying to take position on my tail, but i am making such a tight turn and ending up on his tail, enemy aircraft pulls up and climbs away.
"Didn`t work out bastard! Can`t take us in turnfight!"
But things were turning for the worse and only miracle could save us. And suddenly, from nowhere group of 6 I-153s (kings of the air) came to our resque!! Their rockets are scaring away germans and they are leaving. I am very tired and trying to catch my breath, very thursty too. Here is the airfield, come on plane...land already!!!
Climbing out of the cockpit and slowly, barerly moving my feet towards our "Fox hole" , Haldeev quietly following me.
- What a day - pronouces Haldeev and falls down on the "bed" (nari - wooden bed with grass matress)

He was laying there quietly for few minutes then said: we should find out if Sturmoviks made it home ok...
Right at this moment Anikeev walked into our fox hole and congradulated us on successfull mission. All sturmoviks came back home and pilots from the Yak survived, just got some burns... and on this note... i fell into deep sleep..

This a little fragment is taking from Memoirs of Hero of Soviet uninon, Cpt Kolverov. Fighter pilot of Baltic VVS. He flew from day one to end of 1943 on I-16, LAGG3, Mig3, Hurricane and La5F. 28 Enemy planes. Over 600 missions.

Here`s the COOP for you, based on this story. 7 Sturmoviks escorted by 4 I-16 + 2 Yak1s + 2 Lagg3s attacking airfield - 12 ME109s intercept. 6 Emils, 6 F2s. And additional 6 I-153


From Pokrishkins memoirs:
"Comesk (commander of escadrilia -12 fighters) Petrov told us about heavy fight that took place in the skies of Kuban 2 days earlier. They were in patrol flight near front lines. His group of 8 P-39s shot down and damaged 10 enemy planes but lost 3 pilots. Fight started when they were bounced by 2 pairs of ME-109 (G2). His wingman was shot down and couple of minutes later ME-109 in flames was spinning down to earth.
Few minutes later eight more 109s came from nowhere to help remaining 3. They dove on us in full force. Group evaded and shut down one more 109.

And right there i hear voice of Boris Glinka on the radio:

Wounded! Leaving the fight!

Later we found out that one of the shells exploaded in the cockpit wounding the pilot and damaging controls oh the plane. Trying to finish him off 4 Me109 went after him, but his wingman Sgt. Kudryashov deffends him from their first attack. Then nazi turn on him (Kudryashov) and set his plane on fire.
"I am on fire", last words of Kudryashov - and second later he rammed one of messersmidts.
Fierce explosion of two planes astonish enemy for a moment but just for the moment. Germans became especially agressive and their attacks resumed.
Plane of Lt. Shmatko cough fiew few minutes later and he did the same thing as Kudryashov, plunged into enemy fighter. Second taran had major impact on Luftwaffe fighters and they start leaving fight diving towards their positions. Even that they had absolute advantage in number of planes, they preferred to leave."

COOP:

Flight of 8 P-39N1s interecepts two groups of ME109-G2 (4 and 8)
Kuban 1943.


From Memoirs of HSS, Lugansky...

"At the end of the day our group of 12 La5s went on the escort of Sturmoviks. Our objective is big airbase Rogan, near Kharkov.

We reached our target when sun was settling down and red colors of landscape looked rather evil and scary. On the german airfield everyone was relaxing after long day and Ju88s were nicely lined up near the runway. Some surrounded by trucks with fuel and bombs, more likely getting ready for the night missions or maybe for tomorrow. Our Sturmoviks striked airfield with massive bomb attack from get-go. Explosiona, fire and black smoke covered the ground. I could see people running away from the planes, falling down and never getting up.
AAA was to late with defending fire and our IL2s already formed the circle and started to pound their targets with MG/Cannon fire and RS. We going after our IL2s and attacking planes on the runway.

While exiting my attack i noticed level of distruction on the base, exploading planes, communications, buildings, trucks... everything was on fire and pieces were flying around in the thick black smoke. It was unblelievable view!

When Sturmoviks were in their third attack over the target area flight of 20 Me-109s appeared, probably was called in by radio. We are getting on their way, that`s what we do, this is our job.

109s are all over our Sturmoviks, their attacks fierced and tactically correct. You can tell that those guys know what they doing and we are having hard time defending our bombers. But even then we managed to down 3 Me-109s disregarding the fact that it`s only 12 of us and 20 of them. But i can`t get out of my head the fact that we have to fly back home and fuel and ammo is accounted for. Each flight leader remebers that, us and germans... they know.
Situation started to get really complicated, trying to avoid attacking messers our Sturmoviks split up on two groups and started to turn for home. It was bad tactical desigion without a doubt. Sturmoviks just like fighters unstopable when they like one fist , favorite frase of our commander Soldatenkov.
But anyways, 4 Sturmoviks turned North-East and headed towards Urazovo and other group of 3 went along rail road tracks over Chuguevo on Kurpyansk. If if don`t cover them..Messers are going to shred them to pieces. We didn`t even wait for command, me, Lubenuk and Krivoe went after 3 Sturmoviks. Four 109s were in the beginning of attack on those 3 but we got on their way. Germans figured that they are not going to succeed and 109s pulled back. AAA Fire from the ground was kind of bothering us, we were on soviet territory but constant fire did not stop. Where is it coming from?? Maybe it`s our AAA units got confused? Then...maybe we got lost...i`m starting to hesitate. Flying over the rail road Kharkov-Kurpyansk, it is under control of our army but to the left and to the right of it enemy.

We are flying wing to wing with Sturmoviks, Krivov on the right side and lower and commander a little bit above me. Lubenuk changing course all the time, looking for enemy, he is above everybody and has full freedom of manuever. That gives him full vision of what`s going on in all directions.
I looked towards Krivov and my heart stopped... his plane started smoking and and losing altitude but staying on course.

Lubenuk broke radio silence..

- Krivov, what happened??

I am screaming too..

- Jump, jump!!! While you have altitude!!

We are waiting for any signs of the parachute... but plane flew over rail road and exploaded on impact with the ground...right in the front of our eyes...

Soon, anti-aircraft fire stopped and Sturmoviks turned left before Krupyansk headed toawards Urazovo and after reporting that one "little one" fell down near station Grakovo disappeared in the dark. Me and Lubenuk landed in the complete darkness, by heart".

Here`s the COOP mission.
8 Sturmoviks escorted by 12 La5F Attacking german airfield. 20 Me109 (10 G2, 10G6) intercept. Time of the day 6pm.


based on on memoirs of soviet IL-2 Pilot, HSU Drachenko.

"It happened on August 14th. Sun was about to settle down but our command gathered all pilots who had experiance of flying in the dark and gave orders in for 3 groups of 6 Sturmoviks attack tanks that were moving in the evening hours towards Valki - Kharkov. I had to fly in this mission too.

Commander of the regiment Lavrinenko was leading our flight and 10 Fighters Yak-3 were escort. Our flight did not promise any big surprizes, everything was checked out and accounted for, but something was still bothering me.

Command for take off took all my thoughts away , engine took a high note , full throttle and plane went into the skies, it looked like it was trying to catch a signal rocket that was just fired. Formation of our planes "right peleng" all the time i look to the sides, up and down.

It is getting darker and darker and our leader was afraid that darkness is going to catch us in the air. He decided to take a shortcut thru Merefa, major railroad station that was surrounded by massive amounts of AAA.

On the approach to the station feirce anti-aircraft fire got on our way. Entire sky was lit up with explosions and tracert fire fron all calibers. But that could be half of the problem...all of a sudden it stopped and group of approximately 20 ME109s fell on us from the clouds.

Now i can see that were are really in big tourble! One of Sturmoviks already smoking and falling towards the ground...another spinning down...and third one pointed nose down..going into last dive leaving long tail of flames behind. Above us, escort fighters were tight up with overwhelming hordes of messershimdts. But remaining 109s were all over us with evil precision. Leading plane of third group under command of Shapovalov is heavily damaged, Barerly hanging in the air plane of his wingman, i see huge holes in the tail and rudder of Boychenko IL2... he manged to get in formation with Shapovalov and they headed back, towards front lines....

Four messers saw an easy target and decided to finish off those two but Ovchinnikov got on their way , he opened fire from all available weapons nad confused german fighters for a moment. One of the germans recovred from confusion rather quickly and tried to jump on the tail of Sturmovik that was attacking them..but didn`t see other IL2 behind and it was downed by fire of Smirnov`s Sturmovik. Other german was shot down by rear gunner, sgt Bogudinov. "Skinny" (nick name for 109) dipping a wing started spinning towards the ground.
In all this mess germans separated few planes from the main group and pushed them towards their AAA position. Clouds of explosions surrounded our planes... I looked to the left and noticed a line of tracers approaching my plane..closer and closer. I pushed stick forward trying to evade but still heard sounds of crashing metal parts.

First i thought that one of the shells hit me, or maybe shock wave from high caliber shook the plane, so i dove down and flew for few minutes right near the ground. Then i gained some altitude and put my plane into level flight... damn, i was flying in the wrong direction, towards the enemy territory...

New explosion shook Sturmovik, i looked at the gauges... and most of them were gone, it looked like someone took a hammer and smashed the whole panel. Sturmovik became heavy on controls and started to lose altitude. I could see positions of AAA, trenches, german soldiers... A lot of infantry near the road, i have to stay in the air.. i gotta get to those woods.
Cockpit started to fill up with fumes and smoke, it was hard to breathe...

- Get machinegun ready and hang on tight - command to my rear gunner.

And suddenly lound explosion of impact, it felt like plane just hit some invisible wall. Brutal forces ripped me off my seat and my mind started to cloud up , black and red circles ... blood coming out of my nose... ground was approaching very fast. Exremely lound high pitch nose was hurting, drilling my ears and it felt like i am falling somewhere in the bottomless shaft and there was no end to this fall.... "

COOP:
3 Flights of 6 Sturmoviks with escort of 10 Yak-3s has to attack tank column. On their way they will be intercepted by german AAA over rail station and then by flight of 20 Me-109s, 10 G6 Late and 10 G10s. 22 pilot seats.

Another COOP has no historical background...and made for P-47, P-51 Lovers:

8 B-17s in formation has to bomb strategic target. 8 p-47s and 8 P-51 Mustangs is going to escort them on this mission.

Their flight will be intercepted by 8 FW190D, 4 Me109 G6 Late and 4 Me109 G10s. 22 pilot seats.


Just a few examples, previously posted.

Due to the time differences, I may find it difficult to return from a nightclub and take part in a coop http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Will you be making these coops available for download, so they may also be used on other servers which are in other time zones ?

thanks http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Actually we are in process of updating our website, and if Korolov agrees, we will make COOPs downloadable along with stories.
