A 15-mission campaign based on historical events in which you will fly a Henschel Hs-129 in the battles for Oboyan and Prokhorovka in the Battle of Kursk, July 5-15, 1943.

This campaign is built on Cyberolas' re-textured Prokhorovka map in the VPModpack for IL-2 v4.12
https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,30716.0.html
This campaign should work fine on any mod pack install that has Cyberolas' Prokhorovka map and is capable of using taxi-takeoff and takeoff in pairs/line.
If using the stock Prokhorovka map there may be issues!

MORE THAN JUST PROKHOROVKA.
This 15-mission campaign represents my take on the Battle of Kursk on its southern flank during the ten day time period of 5-15 July 1943. There were many other large battles leading up to the famous "Prokhorovka Tank Battle" which has overshadowed everything else. In this campaign I hoped to shed some light on the other forgotten battles which can be followed on a day-by-day basis.
The front lines are historical to make it easier to follow the flow of the battle.
Historically, the weather during the Battle of Kursk was sometimes rainy and very cloudy. I tried to represent this as best as possible. I also used low clouds to simulate the very smoky battlefields with low visibility.

Hopefully, users will have very good computers because some of the battles are huge and use much memory. I noticed that smoke really lowers my frame rates. I tried to limit the number of aircraft to help with the problem.

Skin Credits:
vpmedia = skins for the Ju-87G-1
I made four new skins for the IL-2M-Late and one new skin for the La-5FN using vpmedia's templates.
Most other planes use default skins because vpmedia's default skins are so great.
I chose to use the Default Skin for the Hs-129 because of the quality is so good and it is made by vpmedia.
THANK YOU, vpmedia!

If it looks like a duck and flies luck a duck and bites hard with Mk103 - this is Hs 129 duck.
