View Full Version : Coral Sea Re-enactment

04-20-2005, 11:52 AM
Attention Pilots,

The VC-81 in conjunction with the VCG-12 and the VF-17 will be hosting a historical re-enactment of the Battle of the Coral Sea. This will be taking place on Friday, May 6th, and Saturday May 7th. We do not have a specific time set yet but I am guessing it will be around 9PM Eastern time. We are looking to host 24 USN and 24 IJN live pilots. Currently all USN slots are filled but we still need Several IJN Pilots.

The maps, ship movements, and aircraft will all be historically accurate. Flight times to target will be shortened however for obvious reasons (~20 minutes). There are 3 missions built at this time and are in the process of being 'tweaked'.

Currently we have at least 3 squads contributing pilots for the IJN. We are asking for both squads and individual pilots who are interested to sign up for the remaining IJN slots.

For news updates please see our website at

Also we ask that anyone interested please sign up for the mission at our Squad Fourm:

Go to the forums page and you will see a forum marked "Mission Sign-up". Post a reply to mission announcement and you will be added to roster. Also please let us know your time zone.

Hope to see you in the virtual skies!

WE will be pretty close on the ships except for the total number. Too many and the lag goes to s*** on us. To try and accomodate each carrier will have only 4 escorts and will be separated enough so that the smoke and such is not visible one from the other. I don't think that anyone who participates will be disappointed. Hope you all can join us.

TBD's, bud. BTW, isn't that one coming out as a "flyable" add-on in the elusive upcoming patch?

Where'd you hear that? That's great if try, but the first I have seen about it; the only new torpedo plane I have seen for th patch is the B6N Jill (probably AI, maybe flyable).
