Battle of Corregidor

We need a minimum of 4 pilots for each side.

(of course.. more is always better)

 Be  prepared to go back in time !  

https://webzoom.freewebs.com/sandpro/YouTube - 1940's Song Mix (The Andrews Sisters, The Glenn Miller Orchestra).mp3


We may be using a different direct connect host to allow more pilots.
Details will be provided prior to the event.

Aircraft, Carriers,  and  Ships are NOW COMPLETE and available in the Session Addon Section:

F-8 Bearcat and Zero Fighters  / SDB Dauntless and AM5 Val Dive Bombers

STATIC Ships needed: (WWII Static complete Download )
(CV-10 -  CA25 - Edmund Fitzgerald - Shokaku - USS Bering Strait - USS New Jersey)   

We may also make of the drivable versions of the DRIVABLE CV-8 USS Hornet and Shokaku carriers during this event.
(See below if you want to add FLAK effect to the carriers)

Japanese forces and mission:

The Japanese forces are ably led by Adm. Hirohito and consist of no less than 1 carrier (believed to be the Shokaku), assorted escorts, and approximately 5-10 cargo ships. They were last spotted in the Verde Island passage, Eastbound with cargo. We believe their objective is the Ragay Gulf, somewhere near Bula.

American forces and mission:

Task Force "Able", under the command of Admiral Halsey, consists of no less than 1 carrier (the Yorktown), 1 battleship, possibly 2 cruisers, and assorted escorts. They are directed to establish control of the Sibuyan Sea, locate and destroy the Japanese convoy. Current whereabouts are unknown. The American fleet was last spotted East of Sand Jose Island, northbound.

Please refer to the attached situation map for details


 Japanese forces are somewhere north of this line, and Americans somewhere South. Please take the time to familiarize yourself with this area in free-flight. formations will not be made available until the day of the event.

 Orders for the 1st day: Locate the enemy formation and keep enemy aircraft from locating your carrier.

 Rules for the first mission:

 Only F8Fs and Zeros will be allowed. Labels Light Blue and displaying only player name. A pilot must visually identify the enemy carrier and make it home without being shot down. First side to accomplish this will go on the offensive on day 2. Air-to-air kills are rear-quarter only. If you see tracers, you're dead.

 Play this one smart. Leave some fighters home to protect the ship and use some intermediate rally point so you don't get followed home.


------------ MISSION NOTES ----------

AIRCRAFT LABELS must be set to Light Blue, all information turned off with the exception of player name.    DO NOT USE ANY available session info/radar/gps/maps within the event. 

NO SPAWNING on other players. Let's try to keep it real.

All aircraft have ADF and there will there will be several NDB's available for use. (see below)

Fuel has been added to surrounding airfields

You can add the FLAK effect to the drivable carriers, if you wish. (see below)

The intent is to keep this as realistic as possible.

Will have one "command/control" operator stationed in the area to help "BOTH" teams

Aa usual, we will be using "good/bad" guy channels on TeamSpeak 3. Americans will be in flight group 1. Japanese in flight group 2.

You can download all the aircraft.... now.. they are ready.

DAY OF EVENT you will be given:  Special SCENERY and a new "FORMATION" for ship placement. (Add these to your scenery and the CVN_68_69.cfg file as usual)

Waypoint will be: TAPER

After you enter the session and place your AICarrier "Corregitor Mission" formation ... you will be given a "Specific" airport ID to "Spawn on deck" (Depending on which group you will be flying.. i.e. USA / Japan)

You will use the "WORLD" ..."GOTO AIRPORT" option, in FSX, for this purpose.

Please make sure you move to a different deck location.... so others can spawn in behind you.

Vietnam Deployment
See Calendar for next Session
Any one... wanting to formulate a "OP Mission".  Work out the plan.. and pass it on.. we can give it a go.
There are plenty of locations we can use in the scenery.

This event IS a "carrier op"  session. I would assume MOST of us will stick to that.
HOWEVER..... I will allow use of some "non carrier based" aircraft during this event to add some realism.
                          Let's try to keep aircraft within the correct "period" time frame.

"Vietnam Pack" and FSX Vietnam Project scenery is available in the Session Addons /Scenery section.

Fixed Wing aircraft launch from the CV-59 at waypoint ELSAS.
(AFTER you place the "Vietnam" formation...you can spawn on the carrier via   GOTO AIRPORT.. ID  CV-59)

Choppers launch from the LHD-6
(In it's normal position. You will need to land on the LHD)

(Not realistic for carrier ops.. I have included the 1st Air Cav Huey in this package (with weapons).

Want to help with the video / pictures ? Use FS Recorder to capture your data and send me the file.
I will include in the mission video.

You may also take snapshots of your action and post on the site, if you wish.


The Brazilian government has made a request to the commanding officer of the USS Nimitz to help intercept a suspected large amount of drugs being transported to a drop off point at the Santos Dumont airport (SBRJ) in Rio. Word on the street.... In an attempt to take over local drug business in RIO... an obscure drug cartel has planned to launch a MAJOR effort to flood the Rio area with drugs.... by ANY means.

IF, the drug runners reach the airport... or the inlet by the runway, RIO may suffer an all out cartel war.

Gentlemen.... "Man your stations". Your mission is to FIND and DETER these shipments, let's "get 'er done"!

Details will be supplied at the start of the mission, based on the latest intel. Command/Control has constant contact with the Brazilian government and may change your assignment at anytime. Be prepared for anything !!!!


WARNING:  The Host will be monitor both the session and coms. ACT professional at all times.
                       Command/Control has FULL responsibility for everyone in this mission.

Gentlemen... There will NOT be time to help you with your mission setup, during the session, as the action can get fast and furious. Use common sense and take responsibility for yourself.

IF !!  you get ejected for interfering with the overall mission.. DON'T take it personal.
There has been plenty of time for you to get prepared and test everything.

° USE ONLY your assigned TeamSpeak channel.
° KEEP radio "chatter' to a minimum !
° USE internal aircraft radar ONLY. (do not use radar w/players GameSpy ID)

SEARCH AREA(s): Assignments will be assigned based on latest intel.


Navy: Nimitz / Ike and local airports.  Role and type of aircraft will determine launch position.
Drug Runners: The drug lord will advise your assignment.

NAVY: you are the "good guys"... please conduct yourself in that manner.

DRUG RUNNERS:  Rules ???  .. sure.. right...
 **  NOTE: IF captured you MAY re-spawn w/another assignment from drug lord (He has prepaid your bail.)

Be prepared for anything.... be flexible... sometimes things change quickly.

Most of all.. the object it to act as adults... be respectful... "get 'er done... and HAVE FUN!
