TUNISIA '43 campaigns W.I.P.
« on: December 01, 2010, 07:12:35 AM »

TUNISIA ’43

Campaigns for the Luftwaffe and the Desert Air Force from Axis and Allies Paintworks.





Attention all flight personnel!
Axis and Allies Paintworks http://axis-and-allies-paintworks.com/ and Friends are very pleased to announce our first official collaborative project, due mid-December. Combining skins by the highly talented team of skinners at Axis and Allies Paintworks with missions by FlatSpinMan, we aim to bring you immersive, and most importantly entertaining top quality campaigns.
Skinners include, (in no particular order):
RDDR
Phas3e
Casey1976
Rock
JaRink
Boelcke
Loke



SCENARIO
Tunisia, North Africa 1942/1943
In the east, the Desert Rats have broken out from El Alamein and chased the retreating Afrika Korps across the sands of Lybia. In the west, American and British forces land in Morocco and Algeria, driving hard towards Tunisia.

Sensing the danger, the Axis forces move swiftly to occupy and fortify Tunisia – the closest link to critical supply bases in Sicily.

The opposing forces collide in a series of vicious battles in the north and south of Tunisia. The armies exhaust themselves, the weather turns foul and both sides consolidate and build up their forces.

In February of 1943, the greatly strengthened armies hurl their newly strengthened forces into battle – the outcome will decide control of the Mediterranean, the oil reserves of the Middle East, and importantly, will lay the way for the opening of a vital second front fro the Allies via the potential invasion of the German Reich’s soft underbelly – Italy!

Enter the fray, first as a pilot of the Jagdgeschwader 53, and then as a pilot in the Desert Air Force!






Currently we are well on our way to having the Luftwaffe side of the campaign complete flying a BF109G4-Trop. We also intend to offer an Allied campaign but that is in the earlier stages of development and is likely to be released later.


It is envisaged that converted versions of the missions will be available too, to allow players to fly the same missions from an FW190 and both a Spitfire and the P40E.




REQUIREMENTS
The campaigns will be for modded installations only. I know some of our IL2 friends prefer the original version but there’s just too much good stuff for us to pass up, sorry.

Specifically it has been built for UltraPack2.01 with one essential addition – MrOblongo’s map of Tunisia, (available from the SAS website).
It should also run on HSFX.

Nearer to release date a comprehensive skin pack will be made available.

For more information, comments, or questions, come and visit us over at Axis and Allies Paintworks.

Cheers

Remember, that it takes considerably longer to create a mod than a pretty screen shot

Do anybody is going to create DCG desert campaign in 1942 or 1943 ?

Hi all,
Glad people are looking forward to it. I'll do my best to get the LW part out by December 20th, hopefully earlier, possibly later.
Sorry - yes, MrO's map is where we lay our scene, forgot to mention that. Mainly I'll be using the northern part as theat is where it is most populated but I'll be faking some places in the south which actually lie just off the map. No map could possibly cover the entire country and still do a good job.
Static campaign - I don't know enough about the other type.

Ranwers - I'm trying hard not to sprinkle camels and sheep everywhere. I'm also very fond of the rotting carcasses.

Right now there are a few Macchis around but nothing major for them. I'll try and fit them in. The main plane will be the 109 and I'll probably release a version for the 1290 too (though that will be the exact same missions just with aircraft swapped).
