I thought I should start off with some screenshots of the wonderful skins made by Beebop just for this campaign. I need to say thanks again to Beebop for these!

The campaign with Beebop's skins can be found byfollowing the link in my signature to Mission4Today.

Here is a photo of the skin you use to start the campaign. As the campaign progresses you will be switching skins to represent the wear and tear on your aircraft.

Your plane needs a bath!

Beat up, patched up, but still flying!

You finally get to put some kill marks on your plane. Unfortunately your crew could only find little bits of leftover paint.

You will be flying a number of missions from the main airfield near the harbor (another contribtion from Beebop).

Many of your missions will start or end at Batu Pahat; an abandoned airfield near the front lines.

Batu Pahat is threatened, so the armor heads out to defend the airfield.

You will be hitting the enemy where it hurts - freighters and tankers.

A large force of Japanese armor is parepared to smash through our lines at night. The vastly outnumbered Americans call for help, but tanks and reinforcements are hours away. Using their mortars the ground troops fire starshells and smoke to help you find the enemy for a parafrag attack.

The campaign is available at my page on Mission4Today. Just follow the link in my signature.

A couple of more screenshots.

Long-range Japanese artillery being deployed to dominate the Malacca Strait. Look close and you can see that the welding crews are still working on the cannons.

I didn't notice that my skinner is dyslexic until I started making screenshots for the campaign.

For me even the second mission is insanely hard! How do you know how high you arewhen you cant see the water? Landing lights maybe? But that would make you much more visible to the enemy. And i dont think the instruments are acurate enough to tell you when you are 5m above the water. Maybe im trying to fly to low? Whats the optimum skip bombing alt?

I use the speedbar as the instruents are too hard to read in the game.

The lower you are the better skip-bombing works; just like skipping stomes across water. The lower and faster you go the better it is. Drop from a higher altitude if you have to do that to avoid going in to the water. Not every attack has to result in a success.
