Unser Interesse gilt der Flugsimulation am PC und insbesondere der Software „IL-2 Sturmovik“ und seinen Nachfolgern.
Als Online-Piloten fliegen wir seit Februar 2003 in einem „Geschwader“, um gemeinsam mit anderen unser Können in virtuellen Luftkämpfen am PC zu messen. Der Spielspaß und die Freundschaft stehen im Vordergrund. Im Zuge unserer Geschwadertätigkeit beschäftigen wir uns aber auch mit allgemeinen Themen
der Luftfahrt, sodass der Bezug zur realen Fliegerei gewahrt und miteinbezogen wird.
Falls du Fragen, Kritik oder Lob äußern möchtest, stehen unser Forum und das Gästebuch bereit.
Nun viel Spass auf unserem virtuellen Fliegerhorst.
Welcome to the homebase of the virtual I. Gruppe Jagdgeschwader 27.
We would like to give you a short introduction on who we are and what we do within the subsequent lines.
In February 2003 we arose from the virtual I/JG26. Ever since we tried our best to make our name in the rather small community of flight simulations.Our squadron is named after the historical Luftwaffe squadron I. Gruppe Jagdgeschwader 27, and therefore we are focused on German planes and tactics. Lead by the ideas and principles, of which we think they are essential for both a successful team-play and strong company within our members, we challenged the long way of virtual flying as a squadron. Our focus is set on the virtual live and we essentially see our activities somehow as a role play in which we can advance our virtual career. Apparently we designed our virtual homebase to meet this requirements and therefore offer self programmed, fully automatic website with a (wip-)coop-mis report system as well as detailed self-created graphics (ranks, awards and so on) and interesting photo and screenshot albums of your events. Unfortunately many people, essentially those who do no not make an effort to gather further information about what we do, think that virtual pilots flying for the German side in IL-2 would like to see a resurgence of the Nazi aera. That is definitely not the case. We aver not to approve the crimes or ideologies that have been present during world war 2, nor we accept such behaviour by any of our members. We clearly separate reality from our virtual activities. Teamwork and the challenge against international players is what still attracts us to the game after all those years, not the possibility to continue a war that has caused so much pain to Europe. We think that the long list of people we call friends, is the best evidence against all those inconsiderate preconceptions.
Although many of our members are able to speak and understand English without difficulties, we decided to acertain German as the main squadron language. So we unfortunately have to reject applications from non-German speaking pilots. Nevertheless we are open for international cooperation regarding flight affairs. (In case you would like to arrange training flights or flight events we ask you to contact the squadron commander via mail or the Forums.
After almost 10 years of activity we are still addicted to the virtual operations we use to participate multiple times a week. As the sequel of IL-2 Sturmovik is announced , we are preparing to join a new aera of flight simulations. In order to strengthen our group for the upcoming battles of the British-Channel, we are always open for applications of enthusiastic recruits.
S! and good hunting.
Das gestrige Dev.-Update hat bei vielen für Freude gesorgt. Neben einem externen Yak1B Modell wurden erste Screenshots des Ju-52 Cockpits gezeigt. Somit wird es in einigen Monaten (erfahrungsgemäß) möglich sein koordnierte Versorgungsflüge durchzuführen!
"While Summer is at its peak, our team continues the work on improving IL-2 Sturmovik. Battle of Moscow will be released on Steam in a couple of weeks, so we're changing the way the content is represented. Among the other changes there is one we think you'll especially like - in the coming version 2.003 you'll be able to connect to a multiplayer server even if you don't own the map it uses. In addition, you'll be able to pilot the planes from Battle of Moscow in Battle of Stalingrad campaign if you own both theatres and these planes saw action there historically. For example, you can use MiG-3 and I-16 in Stalingrad campaign and a couple of Battle of Stalingrad planes in Battle of Moscow campaign.
Gunfire sound effects are overhauled, they became more 'alive' and realistic. We also finish polishing the campaign for now - in later versions we'll be extending it, adding new mission types and scenario missions. Several performance improvements will be included in 2.003 as well."
