Nightcats over Korea, 1952
« on: May 08, 2020, 03:03:05 PM »

Ready for some nightfighting over Korea? Then this is for you!


This is a semi-historical, 6-mission static campaign, set during the second half of 1952. You are US Marines Aviator in Nightfighting unit, flying the Grumman F7F-3N. Your task is mainly to hunt and kill "Bedcheck Charlies", North Korean aircraft of several makes, but mainly Polikarpov Po-2 biplanes, that are harassing troops and bases in Korea. In one mission you will be meeting a larger scale raid on Seoul, in another you will be flying escort for B-29's.

You can download the campaign here: http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads3&file=details&id=2396

This campaign uses CY6's revolutionary C&C Mod, which for the first time makes it possible to simulate REAL nightfingting tactics! This means that a successful intercept depends on you following the directions first from the Ground Control and then, when you get closer, from your Radar Operator ("RO"). Just following the way-points on the map will NOT be enough. Once you get home you will be guided by the airfield lights, by a Lorenz Blind Approach System PLUS a signal flare! Your on-board radar operator will not only give you the radar data, he will also help you navigate, and watch out for both enemy aircraft and enemy ground units. Again you will see this as text messages across the screen.

I recommend that you play this campaign with the lights surrounding you turned down, in order to make it easier for you to see.

Note that there is a strong random element in all missions. For instance, weather, enemy skill, composition of enemy air units and thei timing, plus the exact enemy ground dispositions will vary from mission to mission, so even if you replay a single mission it will probably not be the same. This means that that some patrol missions may be eventless, just as in real life! On long missions the weather will be dynamic, i.e. it will change during flight.

The conversion for this one has been made by Edc1 - thanks once again, Stan!

Thanks for looking!  :)
