THE WOODEN TB3 LEGEND

In the mid 1700s, the pirate trade was getting hard, the pirates needed a new weapon.
The crews of the Jolly Roger and The Black Pearl where at their bases, trying to repair the damage from their last skirmish, when Lo, two flying boats appeared without sails. The men may be fearless pirates, but they still releaved themselves into their trousers and ran and hid.

http://premium.uploadit.org/pingu666/tb3b.jpg

Meanwhile aboard the two Tb-3's, the russian pilots were trying to figure out where they were, so they decided to settle down on 2 clearings, there wasn't room for both Tb-3's in either clearing, thus they glided to earth, and into the clearings.


http://premium.uploadit.org/pingu666/tb3c.jpg


http://premium.uploadit.org/pingu666/tb3d.jpg

The pirates krept up on the crew as they climbed out of the flying ship, surronding the crews away from the ships. and so it came to be so that the russian crews became pirates, the alternatives where not so promising for there careers shall we say.

the next day the crew awoke to find there aircraft in a terrible state, it seems the time portal they inadvertantly stumbled though had aged the aircraft terribly, the metal was little more than tinfoil, that crumbed at the touch.

The pirates pointed out the abundance of wood in the area, and with gentle pursavive tatics got the crews working on buliding a replica out of wood.

Little did the pirates or the crews know, that just a few miles away, the exact same thing was going on.

after many weeks of toil, the wooden tb3's where ready. fueled with a highly alcholic coconut fuel, which also doubled as a intoxicating drink, the aircraft set off with the pirate crew in the hold.


http://premium.uploadit.org/pingu666/tb3e.jpg


http://premium.uploadit.org/pingu666/tb3f.jpg

The first weeks where very easy going, moving with great speed, range, the crews reaped great riches from the ports.

The ports soon realised that the tb3's needed large areas to land in, and started to erect obsticals in fields for miles around. the tb3s did have formidable armament in the 7.62mm shvak, but it was not enough against the obsticals.

the russians pondered, then the hunger drew madness in. they would make i16 fighter bombers to clear the landing areas and act as scouts.

A few weeks later the i16s where wheeled out, and to the amazement the pirates mounted them to the tb3, to extend there range by many times. Also the guns where moved about, to provide 360 degree cover.


http://premium.uploadit.org/pingu666/tb3k.jpg

bombs where made for the i16s and tb3s to carry in the hold. simply made from big leafs and sticks, like the natives houses, then various explosives mixed and pored in, to explode on or soon after contact.

The 20mm cannon mounted in the wings where thought to be the ideal armament to deal with the obsticals, along with the bombs and fixed cowl shvaks for sighting.

with the new equipment, a ambition target was set. a rich hermit had bulit a palice on a small island, devoid of trees, all of which where cut down to help make the palice, but was surronded by deadly corral reef.


http://premium.uploadit.org/pingu666/tb3i.jpg

Again spookly the 2 sets of pirates and russians where on roughly the same course. but this time heading head to head.


http://premium.uploadit.org/pingu666/tb3g.jpg

At 12 noon the 2 tb3s set off with i16s under wings.


http://premium.uploadit.org/pingu666/tb3h.jpg


http://premium.uploadit.org/pingu666/tb3j.jpg

near the target they spot each other, and battle commences....


And now U the reader desides the fate of the crews. in the skin pack are 2 coop missions, one is the story above. so gather your friends on HL and finish the story!.

story of a low level secret russian bomber strike on berlin

The war was not going well for the russians, and stalin wanted to hit back at the germans where he knew it would hurt them most, berlin, and the riestag. conventional bombers no longer had the range and there was a dire lack of escort fighters. un detured by this stalin demanded a attack. the conversion of existing aircraft was the only way, and all modern types where being sent to the front, old designs would haveto be modernised. Russian scientists had be working on a cloth that was many times stronger than steal and lighter. this it was decided was the only way stalins demands could be met. painstaking work was started to reskin a set of tb3s, and i16s to provide fighter cover. the weight saved would allow for more ecomonic flight, and also more fuel. the aircraft were skinned with the fabric and resined, after they had set the insides where taken out, only a few internal surports remained. but still the aircraft where expetionaly strong.

The brave airmen set off at dusk, to hit there target at 8am, the tb3 ran on just 2 engines to conserve fuel for the flight home, inside the i16s the pilots shivered, no engine to keep them warm.

hedge hoping all the way to berlin, they split up for there attack runs. each crewman had a camera, and some where stuck on the aircraft aswell. The aircraft had no paint to save weight, but stalin insisted on cameras for the propoganda.

These are the pictures they took.
