We now know the date and location of the American’s first raid. There will be one and possibly two Abombs in the bomber force.

How are the preparations coming along?

Very well. The Mig 9 is proving to be a good interceptor and can reach over 14,000 meters. Along with its 37 mm cannon it will be a formidable opponent. Our sources have confirmed that the escorts for the raid will be the Mustangs and not the new American jet. They are so very confident in their Superfortress that they are not willing to risk their jet engine falling into our hands. Little do they know that we have all we need already to produce one.

Ha! If the Mig 9 performs as it has during our war games it should be an easy match for the Mustangs and even eventually the Shooting Star. I’ve heard it’s not as fast as the American jet but should be able to out-turn it. So in the end it is faster than the Mustangs and can out-turn the Shooting Star.

Yes that is the theory and our pilots have all been trained to attack the enemy in the proper manner. They will dive and climb to attack the Mustangs and try to get the Shooting Stars into a fight of circles and try to turn inside them. The Mig's real task is to present a threat that the escorts cannot ignore while the real killing is done by remote control. They are all flown by our best pilots and should be able to do quite well against the veteran Americans. From what we have learned many of America’s best pilots did not stay in the military and still have not come back. We also killed many of their best during the first hours of the War to Liberate Europe. The capitalist pigs are too busy making money. They would rather become rich than fight for their former foes and allies.

So it is a case of our best pilots against their training program. We should have parity for a long time. Sergo has studied the weaknesses of both the German and Japanese air warfare programs. We are not oil poor as the Germans were and we can keep our planes in the air and train the new pilots. And unlike the Japanese we are putting an emphasis on training new pilots. On another subject engineers have been able to greatly enhance the reliability of the RD-21 engine. But of course this is not our main weapon in the fight to keep the American Superfortress from destroying our cities. That Sergo Peskova fellow has placed much of his faith in missile technology and the Teppops to fire the X4. The Teppops are very vulnerable to the American jets so we have devised a way to hide their crucial role. Hopefully they will go on killing B29s at an alarming rate and all of the so called Silver Plates caring the Abombs. Again we have to make it look like chance that we were able to shoot them down otherwise our plan would be compromised. We are counting on their arrogance to defeat them until we can produce the weapons we need to defeat them with our strength and not just our wits.

Let’s hope it all works. I prefer brute force rather than a chess match myself but so far Peshkova and his chess board are all that Stalin listens to.

So how many Migs do we have?

Just 20 as of today but again we don’t need many to accomplish our mission. Their goal is to divert attention away from the Teppops and to create confusion as to what is doing the greatest damage. The hope is that it will take the Americans months to figure it out and by then we will have new tricks up our sleeve and we can then use the brute force of numbers I prefer.

How many of these Teppops do we have?

Let me look at the latest report…ah we have 34 and they carry 2 missiles each. We shall see how much confusion they can cause but they will be really concentrating on the planes carrying the atomic bombs. Our cities can withstand a conventional bombing campaign given the new weapons we have developed but not the atomic bomb. We have to stop that most evil of weapons 100% of the time. Not one must be allowed to be detonated.

I was talking to Andre and the ground missiles are performing quite well. We are running out of Tupolev SBs. They are shooting them down quite regularly at heights up to 10,000 kilometers. You’ll get a laugh out of this … I was talking to Novikov and the best missile operators are women… specifically women from the Chechnya area. That clown Sergo was doing his testing in Siberia where many Chechens were placed after their rebellion and the men placed quite high in the skills needed. Then it was discovered that the highest scoring individuals were actually women pretending to be men. Possibly trying to avoid being raped we never were able to discover exactly why but I digress. It seems that here is something in these women’s racial heritage that makes them excellent missile operators and they have an uncanny ability to steer the missiles right to the target. It’s quite amazing I have heard.

Well we shall see won’t we? That brings back a memory. I remember reading about an American Indian tribe whose members were fearless at great heights and the capitalist pigs forced them to build their sky scrapers. It must be a kind of similar gift or curse. I would not want to be many stories high working to make another man rich. Hopefully our Missile Women will love shooting down the American bombers and saving their children in the process.

Yes we shall see. I hope for Leningrad’s sake it will all work in our favor.

Personal Diary of Nicolai Papvin by Dan

Personal Diary of Nicolai Papvin
23rd July 1946

That fucking idiot Lopatin has sent my boys in AGAIN against Helsinki in broad fucking daylight, (not that there's anything else at the moment). We're losing bombers to AAA, to enemy fighters, who contrary to what we were briefed by STAVKA, can fly, and fly damn well. We're having to build composite crews, who to their credit are working well together, well they're all veterans now. I wouldn't mind but the Finns have more planes than we thought they could, and a total bastard mix of them too, FW190s, ME109s - the latest models too, plus Mig3s, Yak9s and some of the American P39s, and that's just the fighters. They have pretty much all of our bombers as well on top of the left over Nazi planes they had already.

Our Sturmoviks are doing well but are wasted - the Finns have no tanks, no hard points, but our planes have no way to talk to the ground and the soldiers have no way to talk to the planes, until that happens there's probably no point in us being with this front at all.

Now I'm hearing back from the boys that the Swedes are flying against us now as well, So I have to add them into the mix. This is going to be crazy. I will ask Lopatin to get this army reinforced. I'd love to see how that goes.

3rd Air Army - General Lieutenant N. F. Papivin by Dan

War Diary of Nicolai Fedyorvitch Papivin
General Commanding 3rd Air Army
23rd July 1946

The bombing campaign against Helsinki is going well. Our losses have been acceptable, even given the extended daylight conditions at this time of year. Our fighter squadrons are reporting high numbers of enemy aircraft shot down and our bomber squadrons are reporting that all targets are being hit successfully.

I have not been informed of any issues regarding discipline within our ranks. I am aware of the stories regarding indiscipline from our comrades in the Red Army however I have put them down to anti-revolutionary elements wishing to slander the Army's good name. As such, I have ordered that anyone caught repeating such rumours should be admonished without delay.

Order of the Red Banner has been awarded to flying officer Comrade Georgi Menshakvilli for his actions in escorting a damaged PE8 Bomber back from a successful raid while driving off fascist pilots intent on murdering the crew, and bringing them back safely.

The following report is submitted.

17 July 1946
The advance continued, with other elements of the Division passing through CT 23, leaving the Regiment on orders to scout the route ahead. We are to gather intelligence on the location of American units.

18 July 1946
Interrogated villager near Bagneuax. The American forces passed through in great numbers 7 or 8 days ago after destroying a large fuel depot. Story confirmed by another eye witness and inspection of destroyed facility. We appear to be moving too fast for the American air forces to re-base and attack us. We are going faster than they anticipated and have had to destroy their fuel dumps rather then let them fall into our hands. We are far from the coast and have not seen any NATO planes in the air. We have heard radio reports of interdiction attacks near the coastline by the NATO naval forces.

19 July 1946
No contacts today. Strafed by Sturmoviks from 347 Squadron. One casualty. Unable to communicate with aircraft. Found 2 more destroyed fuel depots along the route. Food is plentiful but Americans are destroying all fuel depots including farmers supplies.

20 July 1946
Still no contact with American forces. Local population has not seen any NATO units for 8 days. They appear to be moving quite fast and destroying all fuel supplies along their route. A local farmer was hoarding 2 50 gal drums of diesel which we liberated for our own use. The farmer objected but then was persuaded to support the revolution to free his country from Capitalism. He was in such ecstasy that he appeared to have a heart attack.

21 July 1946
Made contact with American engineering squad. We prevented them from destroying a large fuel depot. I believe they did not succeed in warning their superiors of their failure. We formed a defensive parameter and are waiting further orders.

22 July 1946
Relieved by advanced units of the 6th Tank Army and continued to Orleans. No sign of recent American presence. We were told that the depot we saved had over 100,000 gallons of aviation fuel. We have been suggested for a commendation.
