To run in BAT with the Sunderland one can edit the .mis files in DHumphrey's great campaign to replace the static H8 text with Sunderland text and the H8 Skin with a Sunderland skin. The first mission is the only one which flies the Sunderland and this can be edited in the .mis file as well. The other 4 or 5 missions with Sunderlands have them alongside the docks at Plymouth. I have edited the missions for personal use using the Default\with\more\detail.bmp skin for dockside and for the flyable Sunderland in mission 1:   skin0 210SQN-E-1940.bmp with Class air.Short_Sunderland. With DHumphrey's permission I would be happy to post his campaign with my Sunderland edits for any takers using BAT.
Absolutely Mechanic … feel free to offer the campaign with the Sunderland mod … very much appreciated !!!

BAT users enjoy the campaign  :)

Here is my Sunderland friendly BAT version.

http://www.mediafire.com/file/g4ohl8zlj5lunfi/Battle_Atlantic_BAT_Version.rar/file

Just swap the extracted folder from the Battle_Atlantic_BAT_Version.rar file for DHumphrey's Battle_Atlantic folder in the Missions/Campaign/GB folder

A couple of notes:
In my BAT set-up I am missing some objects called out in the DHumphrey original campaign (ships.HMSTribal and vehicles:Bedford). I don't know where to/did not look for these (i.e. I don't know if they are in BAT) when I edited the .mis files. So if the missing items message shows up I can only apologize.
The Sunderland skins were just personal choice and I can't vouch for historical theatre accuracy. Happy to edit if someone can identify a more appropriate skin.
The Sunderland skins I used were created by talented others. I just called the .bmp files from my PaintSchemes/Skins folder in the .mis text and again used them as personal choice.
In Mission 1 DHumphrey's briefing calls for 2 Torpedoes but my Sunderland weapons in BAT did not have torpedoes so I substituted depth charges.
I obviously have to teach myself a thing or two to edit properly but please enjoy flying and gazing at the Sunderlands.
