Finally got around to trying out this game.
I played the short campaign, covering the early bombing missions from August to December 1942. 5 missions total.
Heavy damage was inflicted on the following targets:
- St. Omer (aircraft factory)
- Lille (industrial center)
- Antwerp (industrial center)
The following targets were completely destroyed:
- Cherbourg (aircraft factory)
- Rotterdam (marshalling yard)
Of the 12 B-17F bombers under my command, the following 10 ended the campaign with better than ‘green’ crews:
- Slavo Sally
- Jersey Bounce
- Hell’s Angels (lead bomber throughout campaign)
- Big Red
- Demo Darling
- Green Hornet
- Chow Hound
- Pueblo Vengence
- Peoria Bell
12 Campaign victory points, resulting in:
Major Victory: War shortened by 3 months. You earn the Silver Star and an eventual promotion to Brigadier General.
This is possibly my second favorite of the four B-17 bomber games that I own, right below B-17 Queen of the Skies, and ahead of B-17 Flying Fortress Leader and Target for Today.
