I think a Westland Whirlwind campaign would be interesting with a mix of fighter sweeps, bomber escorts, fighter bomber raids etc.
Also a South African AF career through East and North Africa then Italy. A RAAF career through Europe Africa and the Pacific, similar to Clive Caldwell which I believe may have been covered earlier.
I look forward to your 'Years of' series, i.e. Triumph, Struggle, Loss?
By the time these are all completed I will probably have lost my sight and mind lol.

I feel like we are sorely missing late war luftwaffe/VVS campaigns, or anything VVS really, or late war westfront stuff. I'd love to see some huge bomber formations and intercept em, or some big airbattles with late war soviet fighters. I've been trying to get some old DCG campaigns to work in bat but it's certainly not easy!

Hi Poltava,

I am quite new on this forum. I have restartet recently my il-2 "pilot carrier" by installing the wonderful VP and BAT mods. I‘ve been playing the sim since the release of the Pacific Fighters pack.
First of all I want to thank you for your outstanding contributions regarding campaign modding. IMO your campaigns are amongst the very best: so much atmosphere and action often in unusal or unknown theaters like the Arctic Brewsters, Battle of France, Holland, Philippines, SCW, Romanian Barbarossas …....
To give suggestions to Poltava regarding a new campaign that's almost like Christmas....... Since I like the unknown ore rarely covered theaters I have some suggestions for your upcoming campaign(s) in the WAW (and Jeta age) modul:

1) Israeli independence war
There exists an old campaign "Fighters over Israel" by BillyPrice (2006) displaying some missions in this theater. I have adapted the campaign to the BAT mod by replacing the Bf 109 G10 by the historically correct Avia S-199 and the corresponding skins. The campaign works fine in BAT but nevertheless this is a very simple and easy campaign on the desert map of the stock game. I would appreciate a contemporary conversion of this 1948/1949 topic. A lot of ancient WW2 planes were in use on both sides: Avia S-199, Spitfires, C47, B17, MC-205, FIAT G-55, Beaufigthers (?), Mosquitos (?), Probably not the P51 at that time, and so on.

2) The Suez Crisis 1956/1957
In principle within the Jet War module, but a wonderful mix of early jets and late WW2 planes: P51D, Mosquitos, Beaufigthers, B17, Meteors, FAA carrier operations (Sea Hawk, Sea Venom, Sea Fury(?)), French Naval/Carrier operations (F4U), Dassault Ouragan, Dassault Mystere IV, MIG-15, IL-28, many others. Unfortunately the Ouragan and the Mystere do no exist for any mod to my knowledge. But they could be hacked by using instead the F-86 for example.

3) Early phase of the Corea conflict
Very often the campaigns are focussing on the duel between MIG-15 and F-86. But there were large numbers of piston fighters, bombers and older jets in use: late versions of the YAK-9, late Lawotchkins, IL-2, P51D/H, Twin Mustang, Sea Fury (!), Grumman Panther, F-80, Meteor, MIG-9 (?), Tu-4; B-29/50, etc. I like the mix of jets and piston fighters. How about a Yak-9 campaign, or a Sea Fury Campaign, or other unusal setups?

4) Football War or 100 Hour War (El Salvador, Honduras, 1969)
A very unusal setup in the latin American Djungle. One of the last conflicts fought by piston figters on both sides: primarily F4U and P51.

Regards,

Teddy

Hello Teddy

Some of the material you suggest already exists in some way, shape or form, mostly for older modpacks though. I know of older Suez stuff, but that would need updating I'd guess.

As for Meteors in Korea, I would like to refer you to this one:

Plenty of interesting ideas here! Keep them coming! I will decide in a couple of weeks!  8)

As mentioned when I started the thread: I am looking for seldom or even unused aircraft and/or maps, and seldom covered air campaigns, and there are obviously more that I thought. Which is a good thing!  ;)

When I am converting my old stuff to BAT I will sometimes take the opportunity to do "doubles" or "triples", i.e. use an existing campaign and create a more or less identical one, using a player mod aircraft that has seen to little use in this game. (For example my "Romanian Barbarossa".) So seldom used aircraft can sometimes be put in action using this trick! But sometimes they really call out for an original campaign!

I like the Football War (actually, I think no campaign uses the ElSaHoNic map...) !

Hi Poltava"

Considering there are lots of good request Im not sure if youre interested in having Vietnam war in the scene. Im fascinated with Huey choppers with rockets firing on small huts and troops armed with aaa. The music from 1960's like Somebody to love by Jefferson airplane,  Rollingstone's-Paint it black, Bad Moon rising or Fortunate Son by CCR,  etc. for an ambience and also Vietnam radio chatters in dusty camp of dugholes and mud...btw IDK what happened to Khe San mission it doesnt work on my BAT version and it was removed I think. I like simple Missions like protect the camp/city from attackers, or strike sampans[boat] in rivers, enemy jungle storage camps under attack and on of wooden bridges to destroy. I like white smokes on hills too. Well thats for the starters as I dont know much of the regiments of such but places like Saigon, Nhom Phen, and Ho Chi Minh trail, are the key places for 1960's GI conflicts..my bad i dont have the historic material documents though on what or where the aircraft specifically flew. So thats another option whether fiction or historic based and if its feasible on the current state of BAT. I have Blitz version already anyway.. :-|

Somehow I agree. Good Vietnam campaigns are seldom. There exist some campaigns by VPmedia in the VP mod. But for the BAT mod It's hard to find something interesting (in my opinion). Since you asked primarily for the WAW module probably you are not really interested in a Vietnam campaign. Nevertheless I (and perhaps others) would be interested in good ground attack or dogfighting campaigns over the Vietnamese djungle (not so much in chopper campaigns). How about a south Vietnamese Skyraider campaign, a USAAF F-100D figther bomber campaign, or an USM F-8 Crusader fighter campaign (the F-8 Crusader was a wonderful agile fighter aircraft - the last real dogfighter!). Or a north Vietnamese Mig-17 or Mig-21 campaign. Or a F-5 Tiger or a F-104 Starfighter campaign in the early Vietnam war. So many ideas.....

I am taking notes here. I am primarily geared towards the WAW and TGA eras, but who knows...  8)

Have you considered doing a Western Front 1946 campaign? We do have a lot of interesting 46 planes to use for both sides, like the DH Vampire, Bf-109Ls, and the Twin Mustang. There aren't enough Western Front 46 campaigns compared to Eastern Front 46.

I always wanted to see a RAF 203 squadron campaign. They were based in Aden and flew Blenheim MkIVF against the Italians over Ethiopia, Germans over Crete, Iraqis over Habbinaya, and Vichy over Syria.  The number of varied aircraft you would go up against makes it appealing to me.

since it was asked here at one point, I'd like to announce that I will convert two old campaigns around Suez Crisis, one for RN one for Israel and maybe another set I have for Egypt which is fictional.
