I've been trying to upload this to mudmovers for some time now but it appears that the site is in a 'coma' http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif(I don't actually want to say dead yet.)

Anyway the file can be found at http://www.netwings.org/files/fb_missions/USAAF_campaign_folder_v1.21/USAAF_1_2.zip

...or you could just click the link in my sig.

There are quite a few little tweaks not the least of which is the use of B-17 bombers in place of the Pe-8s and so on...
Awards updated courtesy of MrBig.
Better single mission brifings.
Better integration with il2dcg ( http://members.shaw.ca/lowengrin/index.html ) and also there was a missing pilot pic for dynamic campaign rosters.

Enjoy...

So this is an update/replacement for USAAF_Gold?

I was going to install the 'Gold' version today but have d/l'ed the USAAF_1_2 version.

Thanks! Think I'm improving a little every day. Maybe I'll survive it this time through. Looking for the RAF campaign. I understand the voice pack will be ready in the next week or so. Will you upload to Netwings, then?

I'm currently enjoying Real Deal Gold, so I'm just wondering something. Are you still using the P-47D-27 as the Jug for those missions? The -27 is a bit too twitchy in pitch since the last patch. With Gold, I went through and changed all mission with Jugs to fly the -22, as even the AI was having trouble pulling out of dives. No kidding, the AI is stalling out with it. The -22 can carry the same loadout as the -27, with similar performance, including being a bit faster, imo. Something to consider if you decide to modify the campaign further. Enjoying it immensely, though, keep up the good work. Thank you. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I know what you're saying RE: performance of the D-22 vs the D-27. It's just that the era I set the campaign in does lend itself to the use of the -27. Also I think the Wolfpack actually flew the D-27.
With practise you might find it get's easier to handle the D-27, (I like 'em both equally now - and enjoy the challenge of the D-27) but feel free to edit the missions again or you could wait until you've completed it before d/loading. That way you can have the other additions (medals + extra pilot pic)without interfering with your existing campaign.

I won't be updating the campaign again now.

Thanks for the feedback everyone.

It's a static campiagn. A static campaign with Really Cool (tm) missions.

I recommend it, especially for all the Jug drivers out there.

A little bug report: In mission 12 the B-17 flights are too close to each other and collide when the mission starts.

Also I started the campaign as Lieutenant and was promoted to be Major after ~ the tenth mission. Now I can choose the weapons and fuel load and cheat! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Okay maybe I suck, but I can't pass one of the missions in the first BERLIN campaign. It's the one where we have to scramble out of the base before the FW190s strafe us. All of the JUGS are lined up on the runway, but you have to slam the Throttle and get the h*ll out of there or else you'll be sitting ducks like the others. Once I'm airbornbe, I'm usually shot down. How do I pass this mission? Thanks.
P&gt;S&gt; Enjoying this campaign much more than the BOB one. Keep it up!

By now you've probably figured it out, but the key is to kick rudder to starboard, open the throttle and take off diagonally. It's bumpy, but you'll miss the plane in front and throw off the raiders' aim. When you get airborne, suck up the wheels and stay low. Jink. As soon as you get enough airspeed, haul it around and make the 190s hit you with a wide deflection shot.

Works sometimes.

When I wrote E_O, he wrote back something like: "Do you want to live forever? No one is supposed to survive." It may have changed in the post 1.21 version.
