Spitfire LF Mk.IX: Epsom Campaign

The first campaign for the new Normandy 1944 Map has entered testing this week, and we hope for it to be available for sale in the near future. This will be a Spitfire campaign and consist of 12 missions that focus on the Epsom campaign following the D-Day landings in June 1944. The missions consist of a combination of armed reconnaissance, intercepts, and directed ground attacks.

For this campaign, we teamed up with the greatly respected “Bunyap”, who has created an amazing level of detail and content for the briefings and historical background. All missions and flights in the campaign are based on actual missions down to the squadrons, targets, locations, times, weather, flak locations, etc. We believe this will be the most historically accurate portrayal of World War II air combat in a PC flight simulation.
