Theater Club Carrier Olympics

Still working it out in my head but as a lead in to the season we get things going with a bit of a easy competition.

Each Theater Club nominates one Allied and one Axis carrier that will represent them in the Olympics. Victories will earn points

Gold Place : 6 Points
Silver Place : 4 Points
Bronze Place : 2 Points
Fourth Place : 1 Point

The Club as a whole with the most points will declared winner.

There will be 5 Rounds
1 Marathon:
Deploying four squadrons, each player will have to make search rolls each turn. A squadron that fails the roll will fall out of formation, the last team with formation intact wins.

<Thread>

2 Wrestling:
Randomly paired, fighters clash until one side vitals the other and moves to the next round.
Carrier bonuses are applied to AA values in this Event

<Thread>

3 Target Shooting (Torpedo)
Each side has 3 attempts to score a torpedo hit, as rounds progress, the required hits will increase. Fail to hit results in elimination. Once only 3 remain, we will go to a Shootout format.
Carrier bonuses can be applied to Torpedo values

<Thread>

4 Target Shooting (Bomb)
Successive targets are increasingly armoured. Failure to hit is instant disqualification. After round 3, the participant with the fewest successes overall will be knocked out. A starting handicap will be applied (difference from most expensive participant)

5 Fencing
Each participant starts with their carrier and 1 bomber and is paired with another. Take turns making AA attacks and Bomb/Torpedo attacks. Each successful hit is a touch, 3 touches and you win that round.

Club / Carrier / Aircraft1 - Aircraft2
Atlantic Allied
Atlantic Axis
Central Pac Allied
Central Pac Axis
Frozen Sea Allied / Illustrious
Frozen Sea Axis / Graf Z
Indian Allied / Saratoga
Indian Axis / Akagi


For which I will detail when time permits.

Carrier selection will go one pick at a time by randomly decided order.

Year limit is 43

Each Club, can then select 2 Axis and 2 Alliedaircraft, allowed by thirty club to embark on their carriers. Again 43.
Each aircraft can be used in 2 events only

Edit - Challenges added

This is a good chance to get non-playing clubhouse members involved so make sure to pm them

I think club Med would do Eagle and Aquila but I could be wrong.

Ya but Eagle has the good bonuses
R.O.U.S.

what are the qualifying torpedo bombers that could operate off of the Aquila ? are there any ? do we need to borrow a german Fi167 ? or as club med enter a british plane into the torpedo competition ?
Flakstruk

That would depend on the Club Med roster, if you are allowed by their rules to use the fiesler then you may in this competition.

Each squadron you add can only compete in 2 events so everybody will be a non starter in one event
Flakstruk

All events listed

I don't understand the relay but the others sound fun!
Flakstruk

I swapped it for something else
AdmiralStamos

If nobody else from Club South Pacific signs up, I guess I can step in.
R.O.U.S.

still a little confused about carrier and air restrictions :

do the allies and axis units on any particular theatre club's team have full interoperation's ?  could the expert dog fighter 2 from the eagle be given to a vichy d.520 flying from the bearn ? or aquilas expert bomber given to a barracuda ? does there need to be legal carrier operations ? or can i pick bearn as axis unit and then stukas and 109s?

does the cap of the carrier have any bearing on this competition ? will i get a full airing in the formation game (4) even if i pick 2 cap 1 carriers ?

do fighters get full SA's in the dogfight ? can the bearn SA be used to generate axis wildcats ? do UK carriers get US planes ?

Axis and Allied within a club don't interact - each carrier support 2 types of aircraft irrespective of cap.

Vichy D520s and Wildcats would have to be legal for your club.

Again with lend lease, it is dependant on what aircraft your club allows, ie club Indian allows helldivers and Hellcats, but only on the Saratoga

Edit - yes you get all 4 even with a cap 1 in the formation game
Flakstruk

So we have
Club Indian, Club Frozen Seas, Club Med.

Club Sopac is a maybe.
Club Atlantic is MIA

Give them a another few days then well roll
Bull Halsey

CA is MIA for awhile. i will gone soon and idk where the rest of the crew is.

We can, but not off of Aquila normally last I checked.


Edit: ROUS, I believe Club Med allows the more historically accurate Martlets off of Bearn, not Wildcats. So a D.520 might be the best allied option for the "Wrestling" phase.
