Nieuport 28C.1 95th Aero Squadron USAS
8.81Mb (17 downloads)
The Nieuport 28 C.1, America’s First Fighter for CFS2 The Nieuport 28 C.1 was developed in France but was America's first fighter aircraft. It entered service in March 1918. France originally ordered it into production in 1917 only to cancel the order shortly thereafter in favor of the SPAD XIII as the standard French fighter. It was given a new lease on life when the United States Air Service (USAS) ordered 297 of them as it was available when the SPAD XIII could not be procured due to the SPAD production commitment to the French Air Force. It was intended as a stop gap fighter until enough SPAD XIII's became available. Deliveries - without guns - to the USAS 94th and 95th Aero Squadrons began in February and March 1918. By the end of March a limited number of Vickers machine guns were delivered to the 94th for combat patrols to begin. In June, the 27th and 147th Aero Squadrons were also equipped with the Nieuport 28. The Nieuport 28 in combat proved to have outstanding maneuverability and rate of climb with decent speed, but had a weakness on the upper wing where the leading edge could fail, tearing the upper wing fabric off with it when it was pulled out of a high speed dive. This led to a number of incidents in combat causing losses. Some pilots were able to limp back to base with the damage, like Waldo Heinrichs, Jimmy Meissner, and Eddie Rickenbacker, but others were not so lucky. This led to more cautious flying by the pilots and probably hindered the overall combat performance of the Squadrons. Even so, the USAS fighter squadrons turned in an acceptable record with the Nieuport for the four months they flew it in combat until SPADS became available to replace the Nieuports beginning in August, 1918. FSDS 2.24 Model, textures, and flight files by Captain Kurt (Kurt Schwabauer), freeware pilot figure source file by Wolfi – modified by Captain Kurt, and prop spinning texture by Kelticheart.

USS Saratoga CV3 2020
4.53Mb (56 downloads)
This is a renewed version of an historical campaign, based on the wartime exploits of the USS Saratoga CV3. She survived the entire war, hit twice by torpedoes, a kamikaze attack and only succumbed to an atom bomb after the war. The campaign cam be called "semi-historical" because it starts with a "what if" mission. The dates, ship names and types, task force and squadron designations, nomenclatures and compositions for all US and most of the Japanese ships are accurate. The campaign runs from a what-if Wake Island relief scenario - December 1941 thru Saratoga's last wartime engagement with kamikazes off Iwo Jima. Most of the ships used are new editions. There are four campaigns in this package. The large campaign has you, the player flying a fighter, dive bomber or torpedo plane, randomly chosen for each mission. The others are set up as pure fighter, dive bomber or torpedo bomber campaigns for your choice.

Desperate Battles 2020
3.50Mb (50 downloads)
This is meant to be an historical campaign, based on the carrier battles of the Battle of the Eastern Solomons (22-25 August 1942) and the Battle of Santa Cruz. (25-27 October 1942) I named the campaign “Desperate Battles” because at this stage of the war the US Navy was fighting uphill. That is, they had fewer resources than the Japanese in many ways; inferior aircraft and less experienced pilots. In both battles, the Japanese are the attackers and the USN has to fight an aggressive defensive struggle.
