The Sea Eagles - Trägergruppe 186
« on: November 10, 2019, 01:57:24 PM »

This is an 8 mission alternate history campaign that has you joining Trägergruppe 186 on the Graf Zeppelin, flying the fictional Ar 196T-1 torpedo bomber. It is the summer of 1942 and the Kriegsmarine is preparing Operation Regenübung, a major sortie into the North Atlantic by the Graf Zeppelin and its task force, which includes the battleship Tirpitz. Will they fare better than the Bismarck did one year earlier?

Special thanks to:
  • SAS~Sani, The Radge, and everyone else involved in the making of the Ar 196T-1
  • Everyone involved in making any of the assets that are used in this campaign
  • The B.A.T. team and everyone else who has contributed to this great mod

If I can find the time, I would like to eventually continue this alternate history scenario with two additional 8 mission campaigns, which would see you transition through each of Trägergruppe 186's three staffeln, flying the Ju-87C and the Bf 109T. Should I get around to doing that, you may consider this Chapter 1 of The Sea Eagles campaign. :)

Massive Allied convoys are crossing the Atlantic, and the U-Boats can't stop enough of them on their own. It's time for the surface fleet, along with its Luftwaffe air component, to do its part!



World War II breaks out in Europe. Despite voices within the Kriegsmarine calling for the suspension of all work on Germany's two aircraft carriers in favor of U-Boat production, construction of Flugzeugträger A and B continues as planned.


After a lengthy conference with his senior generals, Hitler grudgingly agrees to abandon all plans of invading the Soviet Union until the war against Britain has been completely decided in Germany's favor. Operation Barbarossa is postponed indefinitely.

The Luftwaffe prepares to resume the Blitz and additional resources are allocated to the Kriegsmarine for the purpose of eventually building a surface fleet capable of challenging the Royal Navy. The construction of two additional carriers, Flugzeugträger C and D, is ordered.


While Axis forces invade Yugoslavia and Greece, Germany's first carrier, the Graf Zeppelin, is commissioned into the fleet and begins sea trials in the Baltic Sea. Work continues in Kiel on her sister ship, the Peter Strasser.

With German and Bulgarian forces massing in Thrace, Turkey accedes to the passage of a German expeditionary force through its territory, ostensibly in response to a request for military assistance from the new government of Iraq. Fallschirmjägers seize Damascus as the first German units cross into Syria. The Vichy French garrison offers no resistance and additional German reinforcements are rapidly flown in, while Commonwealth forces scramble to form a new frontline in Palestine.

The furious air war over Britain is well into its second year when the British launch Operation Crusader in Libya. Despite initial gains, the frontlines eventually stabilize near Gazala. Additional Luftwaffe units are diverted to the Mediterranean and North African theaters, giving some much needed respite to the beleaguered Royal Air Force units defending Britain.

The Empire of Japan launches a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, the main base of the United States Pacific Fleet. Germany ultimately refrains from declaring war on America, and the Pacific War becomes a separate conflict linked to the one in Europe only by the participation of Britain in both wars. The undeclared war waged by the US Navy against the Kriegsmarine in the Atlantic continues, albeit in a more limited fashion as many American ships are moved to the Pacific theater.


May - Present Day
The Oberkommando der Marine orders the Graf Zeppelin to Norway, where she is to rendezvouz with the rest of her task force in preparation for the upcoming Operation Regenübung - the next great foray into the North Atlantic by the German surface fleet!

This looks great. I hope in future campaigns, you will use the Fw-190T fighters that also double as attack aircraft.

Cool! I have a few unfinished German carrier missions sitting around... maybe this motivates me to look at them again.
