Fighter Aces! Adolf Galland - The Expert - 1940 / Bf 109 E4
You're taking the place of one of the most colourful fighter pilots since Manfred von Richthofen: Adolf Galland! Replay his spectacular fighter missions during the Battle of Britain, beginning with his posting to III. Gruppe / Jagdgeschwader 26 "Schlageter" in the waning days of the Battle of France. Galland scored 45 victories in 1940 – Can you do that, too? 36 captivating missions await you. In this campaign most waypoints are predefined. But you still have to fly, leaving things to the autopilot won't give you success. You are in a position of command, first as Gruppenkommandeur and later as Geschwaderkommodore. You will have squadrons to command, usually two of them.

7. Staffel/Jagdgeschwader 26 "Schlageter" – The Battle of Britain
You're taking command of 7. Staffel /Jagdgeschwader 26 "Schlageter" in a breathtaking campaign during the "Battle of Britain" which will take you higher up to command of a full Gruppe. This campaign will tax you, almost everything depends on your leadership skills. You will lead formations, call for reinforcements and later, as Gruppenkommandeur, for bombers, fighter-bombers or Stukas. Become Adolf Galland's worthy successor. This campaign requires independent action. Some waypoints are predefined but mostly you will need to do most things (like navigation) manually. You'll mostly fly with several Staffeln, one of which provides top cover, and later, as Gruppenkommandeur, you'll have the full Gruppe to command and lead. The fighters will follow you, you can call for reinforcements or unleash bombers, fighter-bombers or Stukas on specific targets.

No. 303 Squadron – Poles are fighting for England's victory – Hurricane I (ROTOL) and Spitfire IIa
Take command of the famous polish No. 303 Squadron during the Battle of Britain! Despite her late appearance on the front the Squadron became the most successful fighter squadron of the Royal Air Force during the Battle of Britain. Between August 31 and November 11 1940 the unit was credited with roundabout 140 kills. Operating from Northolt you'll engage the "Krauts". But you're not just responsible for your own squadron – you'll act as Wing Commander! Your Wing consists usually consists of 3 Squadrons with up to 36 aircraft. One Squadron is with you, a second provides top cover and the third remains on standby.

Kampfgeschwader 53 "Legion Condor" – The Battle of Britain 1940 – Heinkel 111 H-2
You'll fly as leader of II. Gruppe / Kampfgeschwader 53 "Legion Condor". You'll be responsible for leading your unit to the target, spot it and initiate the attack. Both day and night missions will show you the kind of stress real bomber crews had to endure in 1940. You need to utilize the "Knickebein" radio beam system to get to the right target at night. Identify your assigned target and give the order to attack. But watch out for british fighters so make sure you don't miss your fighter cover.


New Features of this Add-On

General Chance
Almost all campaigns now contain a random element, meaning at any time unexpected events can take place while you're busy with your assigned tasks. You can never be sure if your own airfield doesn't come under attack while you're about to land. Or, if you replay a mission, you will not encounter the same opponents at the same location and altitude. As a result each mission will play out differently every time you play it. This is also true when entering enemy airspace. Don't be too cocky when pursuing enemy aircraft … that could have drastic consequences. Even if you make it back... the enemy could launch a massive retaliatory attack!

Flugmeldedienst (Air Oberservation Service) of the Luftwaffe
The Luftwaffe has gotten its own air observation service which, while not as sophisticated as the RAF system, can provide some basic information on enemy formations in your own airspace. Enemy aircraft inbound? Scramble!

Radio Direction Finding (RDF, later RADAR)
As pilot of the Royal Air Force you can rely on a sophisticated radio direction finding system. Fighter Command will constantly update you about the enemy's progress and which course you have to fly to intercept him. RDF gives you a considerable advantage!

"Knickebein" Blind Bombing Procedure
As a special feature for bomber pilots the german "Knickebein" radio beam system I depicted in a flight simulation for the first time. At night the system will guide you to the target.

Call for reinforcements!
Almost all missions now contain the possibility to call for reinforcements. Or to call up bomber vics which you can direct on targets. Special missions will take you to the edges of your tactical skills. Success or failure depends on you!
