In this campaign you will be flying strikes against the battleship Yamato on it's last mission on April 7, 1945. You will find yourself flying a Hellcat, Helldiver or and Avenger in each of the four waves of the attack. Hit the Yamato and shoot up her escorts.
This is a mini campaign encompassing the four waves of the attack on Adm Kurita's Center Force and the CAP defense of Task Group 38.3 on October 24 1944. You will find yourself flying either a fighter, a dive bomber or a torpedo plane. I
tried to be as historically accurate as possible with placement, ship names and types and times.
This campaign is an update to the version produced by Ryan Hensley (Moonbutter2), who graciously gave his permission for this update.
In this campaign you will begin by flying the Focke-Wulf Ta-152, and once you have proved your fighting skills, you will be given the opportunity to fly the Messerschmitt Me-262. After completing your training with the new bird, you will find your aerodrome at Schongau under repeated threat from enemy bombers and fighters, and will consequently be fighting in all types of weather and times of day. When you are not defending Schongau, you may find yourself on patrol, protecting valuable assets nearby from enemy raids.
This is the ?Battle for Europe? dual-sided campaign, which has been two years in the making. The German side was created by Dominique Rollin, modified and updated by me. The Allied side is my creation. These missions were based on the German missions, then were ?flipped? and altered significantly. I do not profess to be as good of a mission writer as Dominique, especially with random elements, but I did add a considerable amount of these ?twists,? and I hope the results were satisfactory. The mission texts and descriptions for the Allied side were all done by me from scratch.
As usual, this campaign does not profess to be 100% historically accurate, but it is certainly historically plausible because I used period appropriate aircraft, and the mission progression on both campaigns follows a roughly historical timeline.
There were several hands involved in this project, please take the time to read the credits!
The Battle of Britain ? Part I
This is the first portion of the Battle of Britain. In this mission pack, there are five campaigns, four of which are fought from the British side, and one from the German side. These campaigns aren''t limited to flying a single aircraft, you''ll fly Hurricanes and Spitfires, Messerschmitt Bf-109s and Bf-110 Zerstorers. The Stuka will be used in these campaigns, but not as a flyable aircraft. These are the campaigns inside of this package are listed below, along with what they were originally.
The RussBoB campaign (Now called ?Hornchurch squadron?)
Groundcrew?s Hurricane squadron (Now called ?Kenley squadron?)
Talon?s British CFS1 BoB campaign converted for CFS2 (Now called ?Battle of Britain?)
The CFS1 German BoB campaign converted to CFS2 by me. (Now called ?Operation Sealion?)
Talon?s August 1940 mission set (Still called ?August 1940?, with a campaign file created by me.)
All campaigns in this pack use a combination of Achim?s bases in England and France, as well as the Gary Burns BoB airbase pack. In addition, Simonu deserves a special nod for his Thames River extension, which allows for accurate placement of objects over London, especially in the East end where the dockyards are placed. This project would not have been nearly as effective and authentic had it not been for this improvement.
This six-mission mini-campaign allows you to fly with the 56th Fighter Group, the most decorated Fighter Group of the Eighth Air Force. On this mission you will fly the three types of combat missions these pilots usually flew: The Rodeo, Circus, and Ramrod. This will allow for some significant challenges as you battle the Luftwaffe for control of the skies, miles above the ground.
This seven mission mini-campaign chronicles a one-week period during the beginning of ?The Battle of the Bulge,? a German counter-offensive that nearly split the Allied lines, and briefly threw them into a state of confusion. During these missions, you will fly fighter sweeps, bomber escort, and protect photo-reconnaissance aircraft surveying damage by previous raids. This is based on a CFS1 campaign originally created by Bill Potvin, who generously gave his support and allowed this project to push forward. This is a sister to his ?56th Fighter Group ? Zemke?s Wolfpack,? which will be released shortly.
This set of 22 training missions for the Bristol Beaufort Mk I (November 1939-March 1940) develops flying and attack skills. It is intended for flight in real time without the tactical display. It takes place in Britain and assumes the use of Rhumbaflappy's LOD8 mesh, Stiz' euro textures and Simonu's seasons. Includes updated Beaufort Panel with autopilot, British and Scottish lighthouses, and OTU textures. The campaign requires only the following add-ons: beaufort1-b, beaufort1-t and CC_Bases, all by merlin2 at the Sim-Outhouse.
This is my updated version of a seven-pack of missions created by Mike Walsh (Air Hog) which cover the use of the Focke-Wulf Fw-190 ?Dora? from the weeks preceding D-day through the summer of 1944. In these missions, you will be able to participate in ground attack missions, fighter sweeps, bomber intercept, as well as escort / protection missions. Once again, these missions have enhanced .dyn files for greater mission playability and flexibility.
This is my updated version of the Eastern Front Design Team's Dora and Pfeil / Spitfire campaign. It has been completely updated with either created or enhanced .dyn files for superior mission playability. In addition, the scenery and object locations (Calais harbor and Antwerp, for example) have been modified to use Sander?s scenery files. Other than that, it?s the usual drill?improved aircraft choices, updated infrastructure, and the use of Achim?s bases, including the new base at Bonn-Hangelar.
For the German side, the campaign follows the steady retreat of German forces from defending France prior to D-day to defending the Ludendorff Bridge from Bonn nearing the end of the war. For the British, you will fight the Luftwaffe for air superiority initially from England, and once that is accomplished, you then fly ?rhubarb? strikes on everything from airbases to vehicle convoys, hopping first from Hawkinge to Lille, France, and then from there to Asch, Belgium as you pursue the retreating Germans.
Many thanks to both Ken Stallings and Thomas (Crashwoody) Wood for their generosity in allowing this project to proceed, this rework could not have proceeded without them!
This is a set of 36 individual missions (65-100) about the black pilots of the 99th Fighter Squadron, 332nd Fighter Group, known as the Tuskegee Airmen. This set of missions starts in the early summer of 1944, beginning with numerous escort missions to targets as varied as Munich, Avignon, Auschwitz, and Ploesti. You start flying these in P-47 Thunderbolts, and then switch over to the P-51b Mustang, the mount which will remain yours (with a switch to the bubble-top model) for the remainder of the war. As Germany forces retreat towards the Reich itself, you will disrupt their withdrawal by strafing airbases, attacking vehicle convoys, ground targets, and busting trains. Despite miserable weather during the winter, you renew flying escort missions as the weather allows, attacking targets within and adjacent to the Third Reich. During these missions you will battle with aircraft equal or superior to your own: Me-262 jets, He-162 Salamanders, Fw-190 Doras, and even the Me-163 Komet. This will be a chance for you to put your two years of combat experience to the ultimate test, especially when you fly a raid on Berlin itself!
The missions are as close to historically accurate as I could make them. The majority of the background information was taken from the outstanding book: "Black Knights, The Story of the Tuskegee Airmen" by Lynn M. Homan and Thomas Reilly. I have had to omit some of the actual missions conducted by the Tuskegee Airmen just for brevity sake. I have also taken some creative liberty where limitations of CFS2 would not allow for total accuracy of mission building. For this, I apologize to the original Tuskegee Airmen and the authors of the book.
The Royal Canadian Air Force is a campaign that featured 20 historically plausible missions flown by the RCAF between the beginning of 1943 and the D-day landings in Normandy. These missions feature the Hawker Typhoon as the primary aircraft, however the DeHavilland Mosquito is used as well. This campaign features a varying array of intercept, bomber escort, photo reconnaissance, and ground attack missions. You will become quite acquainted with the ?Tiffie? during this campaign, as well as the roar of the Napier Sabre 24-cylinder engine!
On July 4,1942 the AVG was disbanded and became the China Air Task Force.11 of the 16 AVG pilots who stayed left July 18,1942 leaving 5 to help Chennault.They had 51 fighters ( 31 P-40B&C's and 20 P-40E's) which only 29 were flyable.7 B-25's were also sent to the group for bombing.Their mission was to escort transports over the Hump,support Chinese Ground forces and stop the Japanese Air Forces.
The CATF was disbanded in March 1943 and had almost as impressive record as the AVG.Chennault harrassed the enemy by bombing airfields,harbors,attacking enemy ground forces and keeping the Japanese Airforces at bay.

This is the ?Deep war? campaign, which extends ?Operation Barbarossa? into 1942. Once again, it is a conversion of a CFS1 campaign created by Richard Steele. This campaign involves varied types of missions, including interception and ground attack, as well as ferry missions from one base to another, giving you an opportunity to get the feel of a new aircraft along the way. Because of the campaign timeframe, it allows you to fly a number of lend-lease aircraft, including the Hawker Hurricane, and the Curtiss P-40 Tomahawk. You will also have the opportunity to fly the Yakovlev Yak-1b, Lavochkin LaGG-3-35, and the Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-3.
Because the Finnish also used a slew of aircraft types, you will have many air battles you won?t find almost anywhere else. Dogfights include battles with Finnish P-36s, Brewster Buffaloes, and Hawker Hurricanes, to name a few. German opponents are also included, of course.
