Requirements and Recommendation:

TeamSpeak is required for participation. (even if you have no microphone, you can still hear others and type answers)

Familiarise yourself with the airfields on the Norway map.

-Banff
-Petersfield
-Herdla

Especially Banff and Herdla are pretty special in their layout and as we start at dawn in the dark you'll basically have to find the runways blind. I have placed "guide lights", but they might not be sufficient.

Royal Airforce

P51C Mustang

Beaufighter

Luftwaffe

Bf109 G6 late

Bf109 G6A/S

Fw190A5

Cool, too bad I only have this laptop here.

One small thing though, the norwegian tankers were not in german action. The merchant fleet (1-3 biggest in the world at the time dont remember) where busy fighting the war for the allies. Some sailors, like my grand-uncle, where out from 1939 to the end of 1945. He vitnessed the loss of all his former crew twice in the war. He was sailing the convoys to Murmansk and everything. His daughter was six when he came back and had never seen him. He died 104 years old, the great man.

I would have assumed that a certain amount of ships were caught in the harbors during the invasion and therefor put under German command?

Most of the fleet where around the world. The domestic fleet also got out in large numbers. It took some time to occupy the whole of Norway, and the succesful sinking of Blücher and Konigsberg gave room for retreat out of the central harbours. The tankers was vital to bring supply to britain from USA. The Nortraship was the office organising the Norwegian fleet. The tanker fleet alone had 20% of the tanker capasity of the world and they where the most modern. Roosevelt commented their effort and called "worth more than a million man army" and the british admirality said it was vital for british survival (1941).
