Very good question that had bother me in past. I run search now since I bet many new informations may add into WWW. I found best as I can as possible. I take quota from article out website and add link for you to take a look at it. I always suspected "Eagle Attack" (Adlertag) sometime however I am one-fourth wrong now as I read it. Enjoy read it!

"The BoB consisted of four major phases in support of "Operation Sealion", the proposed German invasion of the British mainland. Phase 1 which ran from July through early August was characterized by German attacks on the convoys supplying Britain in the English Channel and Thames Estuary, attacks on industrial targets, and large scale German fighter sweeps hoping to draw up the RAF for destruction. Phase 2 featured "Adlerangriffe", the Luftwaffe's planned destruction of the RAF on the ground and in the air, culminating in "Adlertag" on August 13, one of the largest aerial battles ever fought. Phase 3 featured a change in German strategy from destruction of RAF targets, to the "Blitzkrieg" of London in early September, a change in strategy that many historians argue cost the Germans victory in the BoB. And lastly, Phase 4 starting in early October, the end of large-scale day attacks with the majority of the fighting taking place at night over large British industrial centers and cities.

Kanalkampf was the common term for the early part of the battle where the Germans sought to draw out the RAF fighters to by attacking their costal shipping assets.

The codeword for the attack phase of the invasion, on RAF bases and production was called Adlerangriff (Eagle Attack).

So Battle of Britain: Eagle Attack doesn't sound to bad to me /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Well - I like "Adlertag", and "Achtung - Spitfire!".


"Achtung - Spitfire!" would make marketing, sales and production sense - certainly in Europe, and probably in the US. One name fits most (many) markets.


It also frees the designers to include other, later, west front aircraft - if the models are available.


Of course, they could follow the original name scheme - and just call it ...

Yes, I was thinking about it and almost add it to my message about "Finest Hour" as Eagle Day (actually 'Adlertag') was called by Goring. I think we should use "Eagle Day" since no one use title yet as I hope I am right.

I think we should use "Adlertag" since "Eagle Day" sound too English as more favor to American market as we should use European word for worldwide market. What do you think?
