The Battle of Madagascar
« on: October 25, 2018, 12:10:47 AM »

Hello All,

Here is my next contribution to the IL-2 community.



A campaign based on the Battle of Madagascar that occurred from April - October, 1942.

Plans to take the Vichy French island of Madagascar, codenamed Operation Ironclad and Operation Streamline Jane, had been laid even before the Japanese fleet made their incursion into the Indian Ocean in April 1942.

The fear was that the island could be used as a staging point for Axis forces, such as German or Japanese submarines or surface raiders, to operate in the Ocean. This would threaten the vital supply routes from Europe to the Far East via the Suez Canal or the Cape of Good Hope.

Initial plans called for the capture of the port of Diego Suarez, on the northern tip of Madagascar, with the rest of the island to be conquered gradually thereafter.

I tried to keep the campaign as historical as possible with correct date and time that I've been to accurately research.  Due to limitations of the flight simulation some minor deviations were required, however, these deviations do not detract from the historical value depicted in this campaign.

Player flyable aircraft:

Beaufort Mk2
Fulmar MkI
Swordfish

I hope you enjoy.

This campaign has been submitted to M4T and is awaiting approval.
