Simulator used: IL-2 Sturmovik 1946.

Organiser: III/JG52

Online Server: Escuadron 69

Mission date: 01/01/2009

Mission Type: Dogfight

Disclaimer 1: this was not a directed film, this was a surprise attack made in an online open server, this is why some of the virtual pilots did not use:
a) Realistic tactics (some tried dive bombing).
b) Realistic paintings (some fly with their personal skin)
c) Realistic markings (some gamers that intend to fly simulators usually forgot to chose realistic markings on its planes).

Disclaimer 2: I know that many have only heard about Operation Bodenplatte in the Dogfight Series at the Discovery Channel, at the "Defense of Y-29" episode wich reviews the attack on only one airfield, but this whole operation made incursions in more than a dozen simultaneously .
Attending to historical recordings, the real results were diferent in every target, from total failure to great success, but in all cases with heavy losses, including friendly fire. This video tried to reflect that, heavy losses at all levels.

With all this in mind, now look the video as is... a videodebriefing of an internet open mission in an open server that loosely closes of what might have been the real Operation Bodenplatte. At least it was flown in a serious simulator.

Die letzte große Schlacht der deutschen Luftwaffe.
am 1. Januar 1945 - das letzte Jahr des Zweiten Weltkrieges hatte begonnen starteten kurz nach 07.00 Uhr auf vielen Flugplätzen Nordwest- und Südwestdeutschlands, von Bremen im Norden bis Stuttgart im Süden, 1035 deutsche Jagd- und Schlachtflugzeuge, es war dies die größte Streitmacht, welche die Luftwaffe in den letzten beiden Kriegsjahren geschlossen zum Einsatz hatte bringen können

der Auftrag für die zehn Jagdverbände, ein Schlachtgeschwader und zwei selbständige Jagdgruppen lautete an diesem Morgen: Angriff auf 27 alliierte Flugplätze in Belgien und Frankreich, dadurch sollten die britischen, kanadischen und amerikanischen Luftstreitkräfte in diesem Raum für die nächste Zeit ausgeschaltet werden.
