IL2 BoX Mission Planner

Did everyone notice that you can plan your route directly on the web-based overview map (http://il2missionplanner.com/#moscow)? It calculates your bearings and flight times.

Unfortunately, although it offers an export option, it does not work at the moment. click on the little 'settings' icon in the bottom right corner and you can choose other maps so if you to pre-plan a task for a BoX squad night you can email everyone the plan. There is also a 'Help' option but it is quite self-explanatory. I suppose you could use the Kuban map for planning a DCS mission as long as you are just going town to town as I doubt the ground details will match up.

I have just seen that you can also stream your mission planning ie when you plan a mission you can assign a name and a password and anyone else on the website can connect to that plan (if they know the password) and see the plan as it comes together or gets changed mid mission. For people able to run a second screen or tablet or switch out to the web browser mid game etc. this also means there is no need to email screenshots of the plan before squad night. See

Nice. I was using that for planning missions earlier today. Very useful!
