Hi, I am now slowly updating one of my older campaigns and as soon as I have finished I will return back to the P-38 campaign for the US 14th Fighter Group.

But then I would like to recreate another pilot's story - in a similar manner like I did with the US ace Louis E. Curdes.

By examining aces who got their victories among more varied airforces I have run across some very interesting guys. I feel like recreating all of those stories, but still, I am a human and can not do all Very Happy

So, I am asking you: Which pilot's story would you like as a campaign the most?

(Some time ago I posted a similar poll about Swiss, US, North Vietnamese and Chinese campaigns. The winner was the US campaign featuring the 52nd Fighter Group over the MTO and Central Europe. I really made some 9 missions, but then I lost all the data and things I had when my laptop crashed. I was not able recover anything. This was one of the reasons why I did not make many things in 2011. I really lost my drive for making campaigns and therefore I do not feel like proceeding with the 52nd FG any time soon, but I hope the 14th FG will be more than a good stand in...)

You help me decide! Cool

I think these great men are not so well known to the vast majority, so you can do some reading in order to help deciding.

Click on a name, there is a story behind it, read (or at least skim the text) and then vote. Smile

Roald Dahl (Did you know that the author of "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" was a fighter ace who shot down Germans and even a Vichy French plane? EDIT: Here goes your Roald Dahl's campaign as it received the majority of votes.

Willy Reschke - one of the young German pilots trying to stop the bombing of the Reich in the late war. (Shooting down US, RAF and Soviet planes).

Erik Uolevi Teromaa - the only Finnish ace who scored both as an Axis and Allied pilot.

František Cyprich - a man of a similar fate like the previous one, having scored kills among Soviets, Germans and Hungarians.

I can not help not to post another Slovak pilot František Hanovec - shot down Hungarian (probable), Polish, Soviet and German planes. Took part in nearly all Slovak 1939-44 campaigns - his fate is really like the Slovak campaigns I made so far.

Ion Dobran, a Romanian ace with Soviet, US, Hungarian and German kills.

William Labussiere - might be a little bit more fictional, flying in Spain in 1930s, China and French Indochina, shooting down Spanish Nationalist, Japanese and Thai planes. For this one I would need a Dewoitine 500 and 510 to be incorporated in a modpack.

Georgiy Zakharov, the famous general who flew in Spain, China and commanded a division with the French Normandie-Niemen regiment, he shot down Spanish Nationalists, the Japanese and German planes. But I would need the Minsk map for him.

Ugo Drago, an Italian who shot down Greek, British and US planes.

Tateo Kato - a Japanese ace with Chinese, British and AVG kills. I would need more China maps for him as well as Ki-10 in a compact modpack.

No Yanks this time, I made L. E. Curdes already, some other nationalities deserve a campaign too:))

Roald Dahl, please Smile I read his autobiography and I always thought his story would make a neat campaign.

If you decide to do him, be sure to read his book, if you haven't already, it's got some neat descriptions of aerial battles, and other things.

Yes, Going Solo is very good. I listened to it on audio not too long ago.

I think it is a bit predictable who will win since it is mostly English speaking, that is American and British, community here, but try to find out some facts about the other guys, they are very interesting too. (But neglected.) Anyway, if you think I am not keen on making Dahl's campaign, you are wrong. I will love to make especially Dahl since I am a big "Vichy French" enthusiast:))) I just want to have a bit of a competition.

Thanks for your suggestion. But Clostermann has a campaign already: The Big Show

I am sure any of the mentioned aces - or any other "forgotten" ace from WWII - would make interesting campaigns. I am equally sure that it will be a pleasure to play the resulting campaign. However, I won't vote - not unless I can put in a vote for "unmodded" Shocked

Instead I will dive into "Going solo" by Dahl - I got the book from the library just a few days ago Very Happy

Yes, I understand that not everybody is keen on mods.

Taking this into acount, I think the Slovaks or Ion Dobran or Erik Teromaa could be unmodded too - the others are too much related to special modded maps.

I think I could do a few changes for these four, it would not be so difficult, I think. For the others I would have to build brand new campaigns.

Then you have my vote anyway!

One for Teromaa. I would very much like a well made campaign including flying time in the Buffalo - and I have a weak spot for the finns.

Voted for Ion Dobran...
Love the IAR planes... a delight to fly
But he flew mostly 109, right?

Some inspiration: www.elknet.pl/acestory...dobran.htm
