A 17-mission campaign based on historical events in which you will fly an Su-2 assault aircraft in the battles for Orsha and Smolensk, July 1941.

 After finishing the large encirclement battle at Minsk (west of Tolochin, off the map) the German blitzkrieg rolled east with its panzers. Russian armies fell back but also attempted to defend with counterattacks. These were rather easily brushed aside, however, the fighting did cause delays in the German timetable. Summer thunderstorms, mud, and poor roads have also slowed the blitz.

 During this time Russian heavy tanks like the KV-1, KV-2, and T-34 made a marked appearance in large numbers in the Smolensk region. German panzers had a difficult time against the heavier enemy armor but prevailed when the Russians ran out of fuel or had their tracks disabled.

 Stalin and his generals strongly defended the Smolensk region because it was the gateway straight to Moscow. The region was known as the Vitebsk-Orsha-Smolensk land bridge. After the devastating "frontier" battles in the opening phase of Operation Barbarossa in which the Soviets lost whole armies, hundreds of tanks and having their air force seemingly destroyed, the Soviets were still able to replace the huge losses. The Smolensk region was fortified with large amounts of tanks and aircraft which were moved from the rear to the front. The Germans soon found out that the battles for Smolensk would not be a cakewalk.

 ***
 There are no skins included in this download!

 *Please download the "Battle for Smolensk Yak-1" campaign which has all skins needed for all four campaigns (yak-1, Su-2, Il-2, Pe-2).
 (This is done so that the skins will not have to be downloaded three different times).
Find the skins here:  http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads3&file=details&id=2529
I also made a new Su-2 skin (see screenshot below) found at M4T. http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads2&file=details&id=7891
 ***

 This campaign is built on Cyberolas' re-textured Smolensk map in the VPModpack for IL-2 v4.12
 (see Mods link above).
 This campaign should work fine on any mod pack install that has Cyberolas' Smolensk map and is capable of using Taxi-to-takeoff and takeoff in pairs/line.

 *if playing in the normal stock IL-2 1946 - there may be problems because of the map's different "static" objects.
 See the readme file for directions.

 Skin Credits:
 Dmitry Samsonov = Bf109
 Mangas = I-16type24
 vpmedia = IL-2
 BBop = Su-2
 PhilK = Su-2
 Emel = Yak-1
 Hayate = Template and skins for "IL-2_Single-seater_4colours"
 CzechTexan= IL-2_Single-seaters "3Shades_10" and "DarkBlotches"

 and CharlesVDB59 for making the "blotches" for the IL-2 "DarkBlotches"

 - Thanks to all!

 note: the Yak-1 and Su-2 campaigns use a different skin (by vpmedia) for the IL-2 and it is also a later model of the IL-2 than the 'soon to be released' Battle for Smolensk_IL-2 campaign.
 The IL-2 campaign utilizes the IL-2_1940_late model which is more historically accurate.
