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.

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.

This campaign revision set is a mostly historical sampling of the World War II exploits of the USS Essex CV9. I say "mostly" because US and Japanese task force compositions, ship names and types, dates and most locations are as accurate as possible. The actual ship/task group formations are my own design. The campaign incorporates new scenery, aircraft, ships and many new missions, set up in 4 separate campaigns with 119 missions. In this campaign set the USN is on the offensive. Out of all the actions in which she participated, I chose a good, representative sampling of the major engagements of this great warship from her first action until near the end of the war in the Pacific. She later served in the Korean conflict, the Cuban Missile Crisis and eve supported the Apollo missions, being decommissioned in 1969.

This is an historical campaign, based on the Khalkhin-Gol battles, also known as the Nomonhan Incident between the Soviet Union and the Empire of Japan in Mongolia. The conflict occurred in the border regions of Mongolia and Manchuria from 11 May until 15 September 1939. It began with a border dispute between Mongolia (a USSR ally) and Manchukuo (the name for the Japanese puppet government of occupied Manchuria). Historically, the incident ended in a decisive Soviet victory. Neither side wanted to go to war, and especially the Japanese, once the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany signed their non-aggression pact. That would have meant that Japan would then have to fight the Soviet Union alone, without her Axis allies. Both sides wanted peace This CFS2 campaign packet consists of only the Soviet side of the conflict, with 32 total missions, set up in a 23-mission long campaign, both air to air engagements and air to ground, offensive and defensive. In some cases, the numbers of aircraft are reduced proportionately because of the limitations of the sim. For example, in mission four, over 140 aircraft were involved in a massive dogfight, but I used only 70. My sources rarely gave exact locations for the starting points/bases and target or engagement locations throughout the campaign. Therefore, I used a best guess for these. Also, the CFS2 map is relatively flat and though changes in elevation are noted in Mission Builder, hills, valleys and some rivers do not show well when you fly the rolling steppe terrain. Geographic features are rare and are also, with a few exceptions, a best guess, using the source maps. Enjoy the air "war"!

This is an updated nine mission set of combat missions flown in January, 1945 by the British Eastern Fleet against Imperial Japanese forces on the island of Sumatra in preparation for its conversion to the British Pacific Fleet of Task Force 57. In this set of missions you will fly in Seafires, Fireflies, Hellcats, Corsairs and Avengers against oil refineries and airfields. You will be involved in dogfights and ground attack missions in the midst of very heavy flak over the target areas. I have included the aircraft modification files to add to the original aircraft folders and directions on how to modify the ship DPs.

These five missions are a set of campaigns involving Richard (Dick) Bong and Tommy Lynch of 39th Fighter Squadron, 475th Fighter Group, in General Kenney's 5th Air Force, New Guinea. The missions occurred during the Allied offensive of the spring 1944, when Captain Bong returned from the States on a War Bond drive and leave to his home in Wisconsin. Major Tommy Lynch and Captain Dick Bong were both highly decorated multiple Aces and were unassigned, free-lancing pilots. They were a two plane flight called the Flying Circus do to the multi-colored planes they were flying. Unfortunately, Major Tommy Lynch would be KIA by IJN gunboats, not Imperial Japanese pilots in aerial combat.
