- Version 1.7 -
A fantasy mission where the Allies have developed numerous secret advanced aircraft, decades ahead of their time, and are forced to employ them during daylight operations in France.
Requires: Normandy Map, WWII Assets, and
(one of the following): AJS-37, AV-8B, F-5, F-14, F-16, F/A-18, JF-17, MiG-21, M-2000's, P-51, Mi-8, Mi-24, UH-1, Ka-50, or SA-342.
It's July of 1944, and for the past year your squadron has been part of the most secret military project in history. Second maybe only to the Manhattan project. The Nazi's may think they're leaps and bounds ahead with the testing of their "new" jet propulsion technology ... but they're actually decades behind us and our research. Our jets and helicopters have been flying for months already, and the weapon systems they employ would probably be considered black magic to those who have never seen them before.
All of our flight testing so far has been relegated to night only operations. However that is all about to change. Today, we're green lighting daylight activity over France. The allies have been suffering unacceptable losses, and we need to help turn the tide. It is still paramount that you mask yourselves as much as possible. We do not want to give away any of our secrets, and certainly don't want to uncover the location of our bases.
Rain hell down on the enemy, but do so while stepping quietly!
