Simulated Combat Group is anxiously awaiting the IL-2 Great Battles release of Bodenplatte and Tank Crew. Our members have been signing up in anticipation of this new plane and tank set which will be released sometime in 2018. We are dedicated to extending our "Dead is Dead" pilot persona style of simulation into the skies of the Western Front in late 1944-45.
In addition, the Battle of Kursk tank simulation is planned for late 2018 and we are already gearing up our new Panzer Regiment 25 to step up to the challenges of this historic pivotal time on the Eastern Front.
Seriously interested new recruits are welcomed to join the action, but only if you want to simulate and immerse yourself in the history of the times. We specialize in persona based immersion, so our unit is not for everyone. We'd rather have "quality" team mates instead of "quantity" of numbers. In the end, it's only the core group that remains anyway.
Simulated Combat Group is a World War II dedicated central hub whereby interested cyber pilots can survey and review several squadron enlistment options. The site uses the latest Combat Flight Simulation, IL-2 Battle of Stalingrad/Moscow as the gaming software of choice for immersing ourselves within the air combat over the Eastern Front. Without a doubt the most historic battlefront of all time and one of the most devastating considering the millions of casualties, both civilian and military, from all sides of the conflict.
Our purpose in flying this simulation is not from a gaming mindset per se, but with a sincere desire to experience as best we can what it must have been like to fly a fighter aircraft, heavy fighter,bomber or transport within the hostile skies over the Russian Front.
Simulated Air Combat Group is comprised of our fighter wing, Staffel 4./JG52 and our heavy bomber wing, Staffel 5./ZG1. Both units complement each other and allow us to have control over our own ground attack unit for accomplishing mission objectives without having to rely on other OKL units.
In addition we have founded the 2./JG51 Staffel, which is a dedicated FW-190 unit taking advantage of the FW-190 A5 which is to be released soon with the upcoming Battle of the Kuban series of IL-2. We just couldn't let this important addition to the Luftwaffe fighting element not be a part of Luftwaffe Simulated Air Combat.
In sharing communication and tactically focusing on specific mission objectives and training techniques the entire online Luftwaffe can become a more effective fighting force. Of course our mutual interest in the aircraft, men and organization of the Luftwaffe throughout WWII is the glue that binds us together.
Recently we have started to recruit for a new historical VVS unit which will allow our members to experience the historical perspective from the Russian side of this epic battlefront. The 57th GIAP has been formed in keeping with our focus on persona based flying using the "Dead is Dead" scoring system. We look forward to the addition of other historical WWII Nationality based squadrons from the USA, UK, and Japan.
Our members have branched out into the Normandy Based DCS simulation in addition to some Jet Fighter aircraft found within that game, as well. In addition, we are popping into Cliff's of Dover and mapping our sticks for the long awaited Tobruk series to begin. We recommend ATAG as the one stop shop in experiencing a friendly environment and helpful cyber pilots based on both sides of the Channel.
All of the units represented here use authentic historical combat tactics and fly to survive in addition to accomplishing our mission objectives. There are no independent pilots flying strictly for their personal glory. This is a team concept using historic formation and fighter tactics to accomplish our mission objectives.
We've found that the best indicator of a truly great air combat simulation is that our tactics actually correspond to the historical strengths and weaknesses of the various aircraft we fly. If you'd like to participate in our online battles please consider signing up with one of the units represented here.
If you're new, we can work with you, and if your better than us, well you can work with us. We hope to see you soon,
