I just played a few more missions from this campaign, msotly so my "real" 109F4 Crimea campaign doesn't get munged by the beta. I must say that there is some excellent mission design in that campaign, the author is to be commended (or hired).

We just hit a V-1 launch site and then escorted a night raid on Berlin (4 Blenheims, big whoop). As a change of pace, on the weay back from Berlin you run out of gas. The next mission is a deadstick landing, at night, on an illuminated airfield. Gorgeous. And different,, this is exactly the sort of mission more static campaigns need to mix up the pace. How often do you really get an "Oh Sh*t" reaction from the mission briefing ?

Five stars, check it out. Best scripted campaign in a sim in a long time.

And speaking of flying P-47s, I've killed 3 FW190s in the last two sorties. The .50 cals do wonderful damage. One fell apart when I caught his right wingroot in the convergence zone, another fell away streaming fuel- I didn't know I had the kill until I saw the flash and the message, and the last took a burst and lost control and spun out spraying AV gas everywhere. Either or neither of the last two might have been pilot kills since I had a deflection shot on a target in plan view and could likely have hit the cockpit.

Thanks for your kind words mllaneza.

Would you want to play AGAIN when I've tweaked the campaign to include some of the new 1.2 features?

Blenheims over Berlin, escorted by P-47s is something that should be fixed.

For my money, you can put more Luftwaffe in - I'm killing 'em in the P-47.

Hey Extreme,

Yeah, I just got done a "Real Deal" mission. Lots-o-fun man...well done. I have to say, I actually like the P40s...they are hella maneuverable at low speeds, and I have had one to 120 kph with only combat flaps, and she STILL didn't stall out.

Anyways, if you tweaked again for 1.2, that would be cool...IE, put in the P51. All in all...great work. Guys like you are what make this community great!
