American Knights: A League of their Own

American Knights: A League of their Own

This campaign pack was made with Il-2 1946, 4.10.1 #DBW 1916.

I can't verify if this campaign pack will work with anything else (but I wouldn't count on it).

This pack contains three historical campaigns, portraying the United States Army Air Service during World War I.  You will fly for the 22nd Aero Squadron (10 missions), 27th Aero Squadron (12 missions) and the 94th Aero Squadron (20 missions) 

All missions are based on the actual missions flown by these squadrons.  In all campaigns, you will fly the Spad XIII, and for the early missions in "94th Aero Squadron," you will fly the Nieuport 28.

I've got my mind set on you...I've got my mind set on you...

In my campaigns, always start with the highest rank available.  You will thus have command of your squadron in the air in all missions, allowing you to order individual flights to attack specific targets.

And we'll all float on okay...

There is other air activity, and sometimes ground activity, going on during these missions.  This is for the sake of immersion, a little reminder that there is more to this war than just you.  Cycle through the cameras if you want to see what else is going on.

Shoot to thrill, play to kill...

In all three campaigns, missions are either air-to-air (as in, engaging enemy aeroplanes) or balloon busting, and are sometimes combined.

The boys are back in town, the boys are back in town...


Links to the Mods Needed:

You need all three of these, for one thing:


And then, there are these additional aircraft:


Other required mods are listed in the Readme.

Ooh! I might have to finally get around to giving DBW a try!

Adding this to the list,

Cheers!

Do you need to install the plane mods on top of DBW? Or does it come with it and you have simply supplied those for people who want to try in other modpacks?

These are to be installed on top of DBW, going by previous campaigns.

These campaigns can also be run on BAT_DOF by investing time.



However, only one 'groundcrew_chocks' object is not solved.

So I tried making an object using the 'Chocks crew' mod, but I don't like the result.

It seems that the BAT user would be better to apply the 'Stand-in_for_missing_objects' mod for this object.



And, if anyone has a Groundcrew_chocks' object, I'd appreciate it if you could share it.
