Well - i now see the "Hawk Supply Crates" the first time:

 

Born to Fly. Part 4

Reward:
trophyhawk_open.png1 Hawk Supply Crate

Complete the following missions:

  • Born to Fly. Part 1
  • Born to Fly. Part 2
  • Born to Fly. Part 3

Restriction:

  • Once per account


    Part 1+2 are normal grinding. Part 3 is more difficult because of the win condition.
    And the seals are spared because it is only mandatory for T5-10.

    Maybe I'll get lucky and the missions can be completed at the same time (rather than one after the other).
    Unfortunately, I couldn't find that out from the description. How do you see that?

    In any case, it's a very good weekend mission plus the discounts on the planes and equipment.
    For once, I hope this weekend is bad weather. Then I will have more time to fly.  :playing:

If there's no condition "Complete mission name" it means that these missions run simultaneously. 

For example, if the mission looked like this:

Born to fly. Part 2

  • Earn 100,000 personal points in any number of battles.
  • Complete the mission 'Born to fly. Part 1' 

it would mean that they should be completed one after another :honoring:

Usually the missions run concurrently so you could potentially make progress in all three based on one battle.

Thanks for the clarification - blindfold.:great:

 

Now I can only hope that it rains on the weekend and I am not tied up in gardening ... :D

I foresee a lot of XP-54s being in the air this weekend.

 

Flighted XP-54s.

There's already quite a few in the air with the VB 10 event......

Then you have more fun flying T7 again.
With it you shoot geese more easily and there is a smaller probability of being low-tier when there are swarms of geese.
My i-220 will be happy - no jets but screaming goose jockeys. :trollface:

And maybe I'll afford the Chinese Mustang P-51K at half price for some variety. :coin:

All of you Uber pilots should swear on a stack of buttermilk pancakes that you won't fly the Goose. Tell your clan members to swear to not flight in them. :sceptic:


 
So say we all.

If you can perfectly get 100 full enemy kills you'd be filling 100k PP automatically...

 

Thanks for the boxes! :great:

Yes.  P-51D, too.  I-220, Bf-109G  - heck, the Yak-3RD might even be fun with all those Gooses out there.

 

Of course, if I'm flying T7, the Bf-109Z is also on the menu.  The Goose is big and fragile, and those four MK108s hit hard...

Welp, there goes my trying for tokens. Wuz trying to get them at T4 and below, but as of Friday, not so much. 

 

My only hope is to clear these missions out fast enough to get back to lower tiers.

 

They should make these things T4 and above. 

 

But that is just a selfish complaint.

Let's hope I can buy the se-100 at the start, then use it to complete dem missions :hiding:

Well, that was fun and easy!  Thanks for the shtuff, and about 3600 in gold after compensation (HS 129A and a Ki-43-Ic).  Please keep 'em coming!  :great:

 

I may grab the French Somua SM on WOT now....or not.

I've relatively recently started my NA account, and done all these missions with the P-40 (best tier 5 fighter). I've been lucky, and opened the Yak-3RD out of one of the Unique Crates (I'm pretty sure these crates are actually coded to give ya this lil' rocket plane early on, because it was my first plane from Unique Crates on EU server as well, when WG originally introduced them like 3 years ago).

Much to my surprise, the Hawk Crate gave me the Airacobra, one of the best premiums in mid-tiers. Together with the 1000 gold the initial missions give to a new account, the Gyrfalcon Crates and all the other lesser crates dropped enough gold to let me purchase the A-26B, SE 100 (another two of the best mid-tier premiums hehe), and Blenheim Mk. IV.

Good start, with a good event, zero $ spent.

my crate results were rather underwhelming.  Best results being gold comp for the Me 209 and a new LaGG-3(4).  Did get a lot of boosters.

I got gold and free XP, mostly.

And a boatload of mechanical parts.
