Battle of Britain: Kosciuszko (303) Squadron for CUP
« on: January 26, 2016, 05:01:04 PM »



This campaign chronicles the activities of 303 Squadron during the Battle of Britain. 303, or Ko?ciuszko squadron was a key RAF fighter squadron in the battle and by many accounts the best Hurricane-equipped squadron in the battle. The squadron was comprised of Polish pilots who had escaped occupied Poland after having fought the Luftwaffe in the first air actions of WWII. Though experienced pilots, the Poles were only grudgingly accepted into the RAF; many RAF commanders considered them to be undisciplined and insisted on many hours of training. This did not sit well with the experienced Polish pilots who were eager to avenge the German attack on their country. Fortunately for all, dire necessity forced the RAF to make 303 and other Polish squadrons operational.

The missions are primarily historical. Most are based on real events and occur in game on the day and time (when known) as they occurred in 1940.  In some instances I adjusted the number of aircraft



Prerequisites:

This campaign was written and tested using the SAS Community Universal Patch (C.U.P.) mod pack. For information, see:
http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,44975.0.html

The campaign may also be compatible with other modded IL-2 systems, though I have not personally tested any others.  .
Requires Canon’s English Channel map, which is provided as part of CUP.
Installation:
1.   Decompress the zipped 303_Squadron.zip file to a temporary directory.
2.   Copy the decompressed Missions folder and the PaintSchemes folder to your IL-2 1946 root folder.
3.   Open the campaign as a RAF Pilot.



Game Play Notes:
If you install the skins provided in the installation files, use HurricaneMkI_RF-T_303 for your pilot skin throughout the campaign (set to no markings).
There are no air starts in this campaign.
Acknowledgements:
•   Special thanks to all that brought us CUP, and to Canon for creating this extraordinary map.

•   Thanks to Tommy, a Polish immigrant in Akron Ohio who cut my hair when I was a little boy and told me stories of the Polish fighter pilots in the RAF.

The campaign works perfectly in CUP and I am looking forward to flying through the whole series of missions. Always love to jump into the old bird now and again.

I keep getting the 6DoF/TR failure at 22-23% loading... I did choose highest rank as it doesn't say which one to use. Is this correct? That may be the cause.

@Kevin Hoggard...

I designed the campaign to run with any rank. Regardless, I don't thine the error you are seeing would be campaign related. Could you post your log file?

Have you loaded this CUP update?

I just tested the first mission in Ypack 1.2.3 . Working fine! (so far).
I know that this has been up for a while, but I've never been able to get a good install of the other compatible packs.
Thank you, so much for this! I am a fan of the 303, and also just purchased "303 Squadron: The Battle of Britain", and while I wouldn't call that a "sim", it is very historical and FUN.
Although I keep asking myself why I'm picking mushrooms in a flying game. :P

Awesome looking campaign!
Much Gratitude!

I am glad that you are enjoying this. There is a much newer version available in the BAT\WAW campaigns section of this site. It uses taxi-to takeoff and such, though I do not know if it would be compatible with Y-Pack. I think it should be.
