Defend Rangoon
« on: June 04, 2020, 07:00:50 PM »

I've uploaded my latest campaign and it's about RAF 67 Sqn, made up mostly of New Zealanders, flying Buffaloes in the defense of Rangoon against the Japanese invasion of Burma.
Download:  http://mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads3&file=details&id=2832

Fly alongside the American Volunteer Group "Flying Tigers" against overwhelming odds of Japanese bombers and extremely maneuverable Ki-27 fighters.  The Buffalo MkI is a decent fighter if you keep up its speed and watch your six.  You will learn its strengths a weaknesses pretty quick as you fight to survive.

Missions are based on information from the book series Bloody Shambles by Christopher Shores.  There are 15 missions, most of them are from my Flying Tigers campaign and are edited for piloting the Buffalo.

This campaign was made in vpmodpack / IL-2 1946 4.12.2 and should work in other packs using 4.11 and above.

*Must have Ki-30 airplane MOD:

by the way, I've also made a little update to the BurmaLower maps by changing 3 textures and adding new Load.ini files. You can find more info here:  https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,31616.msg706942.html#msg706942

Looks nice
Flying Buffalos instead of P40 is an interesting change !

This is great ... I've been playing it in BAT with out a problem - and loved it!  But in VP I had a loadout problem (mission 1 started in explosions) my log file told me that weapon set 4X100kg not registered in air.ki30a
I changed the load out in FMB to 1x250kg which worked ... I just wondered if I'm missing something?

thanks again great campaign!

Try this one, it's sosezi's 'Ki30 upgrade for 412' and see what you get:

FYI NOTE:
You might get a "false/positive" from your anti-virus, I did when I did a test DL before
posting this. Ignore it, there's nothing wrong with the file.

most if not all of CT's Rangoon campaigns work in BAT

this one was indeed a particular joy :)
I've played the same missions from Flying Tigers perspective before. Interestingly enough, I found the Buffalo to be a real killer with serious punch in comparison.

But the thing is, IL-2 can't take into effect the worn out state of these aircraft, you are flying factory fresh :)
