Default For offline flyers (like me!)

Heinkills huge Operation Sealion project has been now completed. It is flown from either LW or RAF point view. I am flying from LW PoV...sorry Tommies?!

I am enjoying the briefings as much as the missions - real sense of history being remade - I like seeing Churchill squirm...sorry again.

There are all possible mission types - intercepts, combat patrols, ground attacks, escorts, supply, level bombing, dive bombing, shipping attacks, takeoffs and landings, trainings, night flying, race against the clock, anti tank, anti train, it seems endless! And level of detail is CRAZY.

I have copied his screenshots post:

In-game screenies

All key landmarks, targets and installations have been rebuilt and populated with appropriate objects. Ports, cities, and airfields on both sides of the Channel.

Calais with invasion barges. The calm before the storm.


British reserve encampments placed north of Killingwood Ridge, and at Denton, and dozens of other locations



Invasion beach-head at Folkestone




Folkestone teems with activity as German supplies are unloaded




Bridges on the lesser River Stour


An AT crew concealed in the grass, waits for the Leibstandarte SS to approach


A troop train ferries soldiers and equipment from Folkeston to the Dover front





Each mission features several player flyable sorties, each with its own individual mission targets and briefings


The invasion fleet sails, as an attacking Blenheim is brought down



While the air war is waged above, the land war rages below






And the sea war will be decisive: can the Royal Navy prevent Germany from resupplying its troops? Or can German troops hold on long enough to force negotiations?

Featured Luftwaffe units include LG2 Bf109E4s and Erpro 210 (E4Bs and Bf110C7s)



Featured RAF squadrons include 64 Squadron Spitfires, 212 Squadron Blenheims and 111 Squadron Hurricanes.




A little preview of the action...

Erpro 210 provides support to German troops trying to take Hawkinge




Lympne station under attack, and LG2 takes off from the newly captured Hawkinge field



Rushed into service a month early, cannon armed Beaufighters hunt by night



and by day

German troops dig in at Denton, their vehicles under camouflage netting



Tiger Moths are used for recon to try to locate them



Bomber Command Wellingtons are sent in



An air convoy of FW200s tries to air drop supplies to German troops



64 Squadron at Manston takes off under fire from Kampfgruppe Bauer

While heavily escorted Heinkels rain bombs from above




Tanks of the 8th Panzer approach Dover, with support from Erpro 210




111 Squadron patrols over the front lines at Kingston, while Blenheims tangle with LG2



A captured German Tiger Moth circles above Panzers digging in beside Canterbury Cathedral and railway station



Corpo Aero Italiano enters the fray


While in desperation at Elham, even obsolete Gladiators are thrown at the enemy






Until finally, after eight days of fighting and with the front lines just 60 miles from London, Churchill gives order to Bomber Command to carpet bomb Canterbury and 'to destroy utterly, the will of German troops there to resist' - and thereby seals the outcome of the invasion.







But in whose favour?

Does anyone know how tos keep some of the Map mods in these missions into the standard map? Like I want to keep the build of Folkestone port, with wharves etc, which is completely missing on the 1C map. Also the objects at the airfields Manston, Hawkinge, Lympne, Calais, Le Havre, Peuplinge, I want to keep those, and the shipping at Calais. And Canterbury Cathedral even though it seems it is Winchester at least it puts a Cathedral in the right place at Canterbury which the 1C map does not.

Is there a way?

Also, HK, if you see this thread (I have also posted at SIMHQ) can you pls post copies of any object groups you have saved, like ships, airfields, flak, camps etc these would be very useful.

PS
