Historical (as possible) campaign for the 44th Squadron, 18th Fighter Group in the South and Central Pacific from Pearl Harbor to the dropping of the atomic bomb.

This is a 61 mission offline campaign beginning on December 7, 1941 and ending on August 7, 1945. Effort was put into making this campaign as historically accurate as possible. The 44th “Vampire” Squadron was the best fighter squadron in the 13th Air Force. Fly along with brave and skilled pilots such as Robert “Westy” Westbrook and Cotsworth B. Head as they battle the IJN and later the IJA in the Solomons, Philippines, Borneo, and many other islands in Central and South Pacific.

Mission difficulty varies from very easy to extremely difficult. Some of the air battles involve over 120 planes and, in some cases, the player must evaluate whether to complete the mission or head for home to live another day.

Every mission involves contact with the enemy. There are no training missions. Front markers determine whether you are rescued my friendly forces, or suffer at the hands of the Japanese.

Mission briefings and cut scenes provide the player with a feel for the progression of the war in the Pacific in addition to explaining what happened in the mission historically.

This campaign makes extensive use of the beautiful Solomon Island map included in the 4.10 patch.

This has campaign began as an attempt to create more missions for the P38, but after 5 years ended up being a labor of great affection for the soldiers on both sides who endured hellish living conditions and gave their all for their respective countries. Also, I have a personal connection to the Cactus Air Force since my father arrived on Guadalcanal the same month as the 44th and his duty was to load bombs, guns, and ammunition on planes from several squadrons including those of the VMF214 (“Black Sheep”) squadron during his time on Guadalcanal, New Georgia, Vella La Vella, and Bougainville.

The Master Stroke

The Master Stroke. Simply The best static historical campaign I ve played so far. Difficulty level insane, long flights from take off to landing. sharp clashes with enemy, target rich environment, great immersion, level of research worthy of aviation historian, innovative use of nose art as aircraft numbers, good aircraft skins for blue side.
On minus side: campaign of this magnitude should have more aircraft skins attached to it. Every plane should really be unique, disk space is cheap these days anyway. Historically correst aircraft skins should be included for red - japanese side too, there are some great skins by third party artists out there, attention shuld be put into use of correct markings for japanese planes, for example correst skins with color stripes for chutai leaders etc. espetially in early missions.

Overall, outstending job.

Doesn't work

You have created a campaign that cannot be played. It's not as though I need to download some island map or something or adjust my framerate. Oh no, this makes my computer freeze each time, and the problem is not my computer. Why you went through so much to create a campaign that is too big to even be played is beyond me, but before anyone else screws up their computer, they should know about this.

Finns in Havaiji

I changed all 4 planes of the Pearl Harbor Start to Finnish Brewster Heroes and survived. Veery nice fight with Hasse Wind, Illu Juutilainen and Luukkanen. BW is not so bad anyway?

Excellent - Really Appreciate the Work Done

I too am using the new Solomons map and putting together a P-38 campaign for this region so I could not wait to try out yours.

I am only about 15 missions in but I find myself battling for my life despite "cheating" with unlimited ammo and unrealistic aiming. About 1/2 the time I get back to base without my plane and I have become quite good at ditching a P-40.

1 issue - it appears that the video cut scenes were not included in the download.
