REPORT Game scenario"Stalingrad. Fiery Sky"

The order for the pilots of the Luftwaffe was unequivocal - the city should be razed to the ground. All the air forces of Germany, concentrated in the Stalingrad area, were collected for the strike. She resisted the air defenses of the body of the Stalingrad area, consisting mainly of anti-aircraft batteries, the same forces of the Red Army Air Force were represented.
Consider the tasks that received the first wave of the Luftwaffe. Cunning plan of the German command did not expect simultaneous raid immediately. At the beginning of several groups of planes were to try to open the air defenses at Stalingrad to find its weaknesses. For these purposes were identified: link "Messershmity" with the task of patrolling over the center of Stalingrad; link "Henschel" for probing the air defense system from the south and, if possible, the bombing of the southern city blocks; Link dive bombers Ju-87- to attack the northern neighborhoods of the city with wooden buildings.
Aviation Red Army, in turn, sent to patrol the suburbs of Stalingrad link LaGG-3. Armored Volga flotilla took up defensive positions along the right bank of the river, south of the stream. Armored took up defensive positions north-west region under consideration.

1 stroke.
The battle began. Patrol zone Luftwaffe fighters and Air Force Red Army crossed, and they met once in a frontal attack. Top links, and that, and the other hand, were aces with a capital letter, and immediately destroyed their slave counterparts. Left without a cover, both pilots had to rely only on his experience, and a bit on luck.
"Stuka", attacking from the northwest, broke through to the city, despite the loss of half of the aircraft from the fire light anti-aircraft battery (resistance test passed). However, the bombing left much to be desired - to attack the quarter was slightly damaged.
Link Hs-126 to choose the most direct route to the city, coming from the south, but ran into a dense flak heavy Russian anti-aircraft batteries, thus losing one aircraft. German pilots were forced (not passed the test for resistance) lose their bombs into the river Tsarina harmlessly city.
The second tier of the first wave was the problem. They consisted in the following: two links Ju-88 bombers of the squadron "Edelweiss", fighter escort squadron "Ace of spades" to bomb central districts of Stalingrad. The command of the Luftwaffe told his pilots that will make it easier than when they bombed the city of England.
Two links dive bombers "Stuck" was necessary to bomb neighborhoods with wooden buildings to the south, and the flight to the objectives was carried out from different airports.
Orders Soviet anti-aircraft battery hidden away in secrecy.

2 stroke.
Air battle west of Stalingrad continues. Contrails from fighter raschertili all along and across the sky. But the winner has not yet been identified.
And we turn our gaze to the Luftwaffe bomber armada. And what do we see? And we see that the command of the defense of Stalingrad Corps District perfectly prepare to repulse air attacks and intelligently arrange your batteries. This brings the first results: the most northern, light anti-aircraft battery 1st 188-th separate air defense artillery battalion, not allowed to return to the airfield badly bombed aviazvenu Ju-87. Even greater success achieved 8th Battery 85-mm anti-aircraft guns of the 1st Battalion 748 th antiaircraft artillery regiment - she managed to distant approaches "flunk" heavily laden with bombs aviazveno Ju-88. And fighter cover here has not helped. Moreover, to support their comrades fire, light anti-aircraft battery was able to knock down half the fighter cover. Brash, chadyaschie in the sky with thick, black smoke, burning down in the steppes of Stalingrad bombers.
Not without loss and anti-aircraft gunners. Defend the approaches to Stalingrad in the southeast entire 9th heavy flak battery 3rd Battalion 748 th anti-aircraft artillery regiment died reflecting coating dive bombers Ju-87 squadron from "Immelman". But dying, heroes-aircraft gunners were able to destroy the link dive bombers.
Suffered losses another link Ju-88. And although it is to break through to the city, but it attacked only half of the composition. To some extent, this may help to avoid more serious damage in German scorers were able to burn and completely destroy the only quarter with old, wooden buildings, but they attacked two more blocks with stone buildings hardly affected - the bomb went between the houses (helped two helmets, which has city).
And here comes to dive along the banks of the Volga aviazvenu Ju-87, a squadron of 77 StG lucky. Busy trying to finish aviazveno German reconnaissance aircraft, the Soviet heavy battery looked moment of attack "pieces." Despite the desperate fire armored unit, dive bombers got through to the city and destroyed the entire block with wooden buildings. Yes, the enemy in the Soviet anti-aircraft gunners had experienced.

3 course
Luftwaffe bombers bombed all stripes were ordered to land, but there it was.
West of Stalingrad began to spin the carousel of air combat. Blindfolded earlier fight between link LaGG Peninsula and link "Messershmity" squadron of "Udet", ended with a victory, "Messer", but he was the victim came to the rescue unit "Hurricane" from the 436 th Fighter Regiment. True and Soviet pilots had not long to rejoice. Through the zone of air combat took the reverse route bombed link Ju-88 fighter escort, the vaunted "peak aces." Here are the best, "The Queen of Aces" and attacked the "Hurricane" from the top down. Their impact was so precise and unexpected that no chance for young Soviet pilots were not. However, they were able to delay the return of the group of German planes. This delay, a little later, the Germans will play a cruel joke.
In the meantime, made a successful landing aviazvena only two - one Ju-87 (we remember the attack along the Volga) and one Me-109, which has lost its accompanied - Ju-88.

4 stroke.
We see you picture of the battlefield after the first wave of the raid on Stalingrad German air armada. But before she became such, the last event of the raid. Delayed air battle group of Ju-88 and Me-109, hit the sector firing heavy anti-aircraft battery of the 3rd Battalion 748 th anti-aircraft artillery regiment. And if nimble fighters managed to escape from the fire antiaircraft guns, the bombers Soviet anti-aircraft gunners were not given any chance to survive. Heavily keeled on the wing, with mangled from getting flak fuselage, another "Edelweiss" fell into dry land Privolzhskaya.
Could land commander of reconnaissance aircraft Hs-126.
Here we can draw some preliminary conclusions of the first wave of Luftwaffe raid. And they are as follows: - first opened the whole system of defense of Stalingrad; secondly - destroyed two blocks of the city (with the village hexes), in another quarter started the fire, which can be considered a success Luftwaffe conditionally; thirdly - to destroy one heavy battery Red Army; Fourth - the Luftwaffe lost five aviazvenev: Ju-88 - 2 pcs; Ju-87 - 2 pcs .; Me-109 - 1 pc .; Fifth, the Red Army Air Force lost link Lagg-3 link and "Hurricane".

5 move.
On the horizon appeared a second wave of German bombers. Anti-aircraft batteries defenders of Stalingrad again disguised again positioned soldiers in flak on the train, the sailors on the ships military Volga flotilla. All of them staring intently into the sky, the tension grows with every minute ...
While there is some time, we will look at the plans of the German command, which came to our hands:
Received during the first raid data on the location of anti-aircraft batteries defense of Stalingrad, and taking into account the errors committed during the raid, the German command adjusted targets for strikes, and change tactics plaque and airbases some squadrons.
Second aviazvenyam all squadrons following tasks:
1) link Ju-88 squadron I / KG 51 "Edelweiss" following the shortest route towards the Volga, to reach the tank farms, followed by a battle turn 90 degrees to attack two others on the Volga River and south of the city block. To cover his fighter squadron attached link I / JG 53 "Pic As";
2) link Ju-88 squadron III / KG 76 from the airfield west of Stalingrad attack and bomb the city center two city blocks, in addition necessary to block traffic on the railway in the central part of the city. To cover his fighter squadron attached link III / JG 3 "Udet";
3) three links Ju-87 squadrons to attack the south of the city center quarters and try to inflict maximum damage to the residential and administrative buildings. To cover his fighter squadron attached link III / JG 52;
4) units Hs-126, given the bad actions of their colleagues in the first raid, limited bombing of the railways on the far outskirts of the city.
Naturally, the Soviet command had the data that we have just what led, so the problem it poses to their divisions, based on the prevailing situation and their own experience. Therefore two aviazvena, LaGG-3 and "Hurricane" were sent to the west of the city, where in the first raid has the highest activity Ju-88 bombers, which represents the most dangerous. The radii of the zones of their patrol we see in the above snippet German photo report. It is seen that the radii of the zones patrol squadrons to intercept all in the central part, but then no one could know.
So German eskdary already flies to the city.

6 course.
Squadron LaGG and "Hurricane" actually intercepted the armada of the second wave. However, their efforts were not numerous, and they were able to link the fight only fighter escort. Bombers have gone to their targets ... As a result of the ensuing air battle of aces squadron «Udet» downed link LaGG Peninsula. But in a battle of young Soviet pilots on "Hurricane" of the 436 th Fighter Regiment with experienced pilots of the Luftwaffe squadron III / JG 52 luck helped the desperate courage Russian pilots. That's when the radio sounded, which later became famous phrase: "Our Grasshopper" Messer "flunked!". Leave at the time the fighters and see what happens in the areas of strikes Luftwaffe bombers.
Still, the experience of the German command gave their results - not one bomber was shot down on approach to the target. And this alone yielded results.
Ju-88 squadron I / KG 51 "Edelweiss", without meeting any opposition from the defense of the Red Army, as in exercises consistently bombed two oil depots and city block with wooden buildings. Beneath hatches bombers began hell. Flamed bright fires affected tanks with oil and oil products, and those that were not hit by bombs, exploding from a huge blaze near the temperature. Burning oil streams flowed to the Volga. A huge column of smoke billowed into the sky. He could be seen for dozens of kilometers from Stalingrad.
Deplete the tornado swept over the attacked objects and machines Squadron III / KG 76. Behind were broken rail and flared like a match from incendiary bombs, city block. Among the fire and exploding bombs killed a heavy anti-aircraft battery of the 3rd Battalion 748 th anti-aircraft artillery regiment, who were still able to bring down the bombers Squadron III / KG 76 left without fighter cover when they were directly above the position of the battery. Glory to the Soviet heroes gunners!
Further south, three aviazvena Ju-87 stood in a circle and attacked just three city blocks, including the heavy anti-aircraft battery, located in one of them. Result, it should be noted, is not impressive - half bombed quarter with wooden buildings and destroyed one of the Russian flak batteries. True and dive bombers themselves, yet lost one aircraft in the squadron aviazvene II / StG 1.
Well, finally, the link "Henschel" does not come into contact with the Soviet air defenses, north-west of Stalingrad bombed railroad. Now the Soviet armored train is restricted in movement on a fairly short section.
General Martin Fiebig gleefully rubbing his hands in anticipation of another award from his Fuhrer ...

7 course.
However, how successful was the bombing, so bad was the return of the second wave, at least part of its fighter.
Accompanied by "Edelweiss" "The Queen of Aces" relaxed and immediately paid the price. The fact is that on the way back they hit the sector of light anti-aircraft guns firing 93rd antiaircraft artillery regiment battalion defense. And when flying at high altitude "Junkers" they could not deliver trouble somewhere below for fun (shooting on individual machines and even humans) "Messershmity" were fired immediately. "The Queen of Aces", this time, were not trump and their fragments can also now be found on the ground of Volgograd.
Resume and dogfight west of Stalingrad. German squadron of ASU «Udet» succeeded in entering the Russian fighter driven tail and set fire to it. And when he happily flew past seemed to have already defeated the enemy, a leading Russian pilot dovernul his "Hurricane" to course "Messer". The German saw it too late, he could not turn away his car, and his fiery ball of fighter fell to the ground ... Unfortunately, for unknown Russian pilot, place air combat squadron crossed the Ju-87, were returning from a mission. One of the links was not hard to finish off the damaged Soviet aircraft, which is also unable to return fire (jammed guns).
All aviazvenya Ju-87, except to get involved in air battles, as well as one link of Ju-88 and Hs-126, returned to airbases. But next sortie they will have to fly without cover - all fighter escorts burning down in the Volga steppes and beams.
By the way, in the photo, we see a hand applied German staff officer crosses denoting quarters destroyed Stalingrad.

8 turn.
Last aviazveno Ju-87, was able to escape from the fire light antiaircraft battery of the Red Army and landed on the airfield. German pilots, despite the losses, celebrating success. Do not they realize that at the bottom, under the bombs, killed thousands of civilians in Stalingrad?
In the photo, reflecting the outcome of the second wave of plaque - a ruined city buildings and facilities, the railroad, and in the upper right corner we see the black columns of smoke rising from the burning oil tanks.
Had a severe second raid, the Soviet anti-aircraft batteries again camouflage their guns and go into an ambush.

9 course.
Blowing in from the north-east direction of the wind, the fire spread to the railroad, which took place near the tank farm, and burning oil reached the Volga water. It was a horrible sight - Burning Volga.
Meanwhile, the command of the Luftwaffe, ordered the continuation of the bombing. True third wave, consisting of aviazvenev participating in the first wave, was severely weakened. Were ready to fly full aviazveno Ju-87, and half aviazvena Hs-126, which at that time were again fueled and equipped with bombs. For their support highlights two aviazvena Me-109. I must say that by this time dominated the Luftwaffe aircraft in the sky, all the Soviet fighters were shot down during the battle of the first and second wave.
German pilots were as follows: 1) the link Ju-87 - bomb the railway station Stalingrad; 2) half of the executives Hs-126 - raided and attacked by previously suffered the loss of heavy anti-aircraft battery, and finish it.

10 course.
Immediately probably worth saying that this raid was for the Luftwaffe failed, even likely, with a minus sign. This was a result of the fact that the raid was not heavy bombers. And planes attacked the town were fired all kinds of anti-aircraft guns. And if the fire of light anti-aircraft batteries not caused them harm, that when they were over the positions of the heavy 85 mm anti-aircraft guns, were immediately shot down by fighter escort "Henschel".
Both groups of aircraft could not perform their tasks - the railway station and residential buildings hardly affected.
But in the north continues to blaze a terrible fire, burning banks of the Volga, Volga burns itself! Burning oil, driven over the river descends all downstream positions of boats approaching the Volga Flotilla.

11 course.
The second half of managers "Henschel" was finished off 1st battery of 188-th separate anti-aircraft artillery battalion. Reconnaissance plane crashed somewhere in the area of the river queen.
Link Ju-87 and Me-109 link back to their airfields in a gloomy mood. They were the only survivors of the aircraft that participated in the first wave of the raid on Stalingrad.

12 course.
The fourth wave of the Luftwaffe flew without fighter escort. On the one hand, there was no special need - all the Red Army anti-aircraft batteries were already detect and staff navigators were defined routes that allowed almost get hit by antiaircraft fire. On the other hand, it was the real state of things with the fighters - they all were lost during the attack of the second wave.
What are the objectives defined command VIII Air Corps to his subordinates? Here they are: 1) the link Ju-88 Squadron III / KG 76 city blocks attacks from the west, and in the last quarter of the attacked located Soviet heavy anti-aircraft battery;
2) The unit reconnaissance aircraft Hs-126 detachment of the proximal Intelligence 4. (H) / 23 was attached to aid Ju-88 bombers, for assured destruction antiaircraft battery;
3) units of dive bombers Ju-87 Squadron II / StG 1 task was to destroy the Soviet armored train on the western outskirts of Stalingrad;
4) link dive bombers Ju-87 squadron II / StG 2 "Immelman" was to attack a city block south of the goals of attack bombers Ju-88;
5) only poluzveno Ju-87 squadron I / StG 77 aim was appointed quarter with wooden buildings, which in previous raids was already half destroyed.

13 course.
Armada of bombers raid on the central area of Stalingrad, was inconclusive. The only thing achieved - is the destruction of the Soviet anti-aircraft batteries. Bombing same's urban areas has led to only a slight damage to individual houses, but broken windows. More than half of the bombs dropped did not explode. Why is that? Perhaps in the bombers was loaded defective batch of bombs? Maybe detonators in the bombs did not work? We do not know, but the fact remains.
Was more effective attack Ju-87 squadron II / StG 1 to Soviet anti-aircraft armored train. German pilots took to the combat course of the sun, and the anti-aircraft armored not immediately noticed. And when they saw it was too late. The bombs went smoothly along the longitudinal axis of the armored train. Broneparovoz and three of the four broneploschadok were destroyed by direct hits. Only one survived broneploschadka. But now it has become a fixed point, a good target for the aircraft, the more that all the railway track was destroyed and rebuild it was nothing and nobody.
Poluzveno Ju-87 squadron I / StG 77 also successfully bombed and completely destroyed the city block. Accomplish its task.
Air defense of Stalingrad turns out, this time, a slight resistance. Nor could it be otherwise, in the presence of the commander of the Stalingrad area air defense corps remained two light anti-aircraft batteries, the only heavy anti-aircraft battery, two-level boat with a light anti-aircraft weaponry, whose activities are confined to the waters of the Volga, but one area is now broken armored train.

14 course.
Bombers all stripes have returned to their bases, this time without a loss. However, the results of the fourth wave of the raid, however, did not satisfy the higher German command. City, despite some pockets of destruction was still intact, producing tanks and prepared for defense. More recently, joyful, Colonel-General Martin Fiebig, was removed from office, demoted to major general and dismissed. His successor ordered to continue the bombing of Stalingrad.
Soviet troops preparing for the defense of Stalingrad, not only the sky, but the city itself. At this time, to the accompaniment of air attack tank battalion under the command of Lieutenant-Oberst von Hyacinth Shtrahvitsa Gros Tsauhe und Kaminets of the 16th Panzer division attempted to break stride to Stalingrad from the north. However, the German tanks were stopped by anti-aircraft gunner girls-1077-th anti-aircraft artillery regiment (commander - Lieutenant Colonel Vladimir E. Herman). The tanks they were not able to shoot, they just lay under them and with their lives Germans detained for half an hour (see scenario "At the approaches to Stalingrad. Mechetka Dry").
This image we see a picture of the destruction of Stalingrad after a raid by four waves of bombers.

15 course.
Only link Ju-87 ready to fly, undercover unit Me-109 fighters. The bombing of Stalingrad will continue for many months.
  Then began the battle for the city, which then becomes a symbol of courage and resilience of the Soviet soldiers, battle, during which will be a devastating blow not only to the army of General Paulus, but the whole of the German car, battle, after which begin the liberation of our homeland from the Nazi invaders. This will all come.
  We're under the terms of the script interrupts the game.

Results:
Aircraft of the Luftwaffe was able to destroy 5 hexes with the railway - 50 points + 2 hexes with tank farms - 200 points + 6 hexes village completely - 60 points and one half - 10 points + 25 points for the half-destroyed city hex + 250 points for destroyed enemy troops (aviation and anti-aircraft guns). Total 655 points.
Soviet forces behind undefeated city hexes (under the terms of the script) - 1200 points + 259 points for destroyed enemy troops. Total 1459 points.
Account 1459 - 655 in favor of the Red Army.
The result could have been different, but it is very bad luck "German" in the bombardment - not lay bricks.
A game without interruption of preparation and lasted for about 3 hours.

All successful games.
