Anyone know of one? I looked through the sticky post on the mission builders forum, and didn't see anything.

Sorta surprised no one has done one?

I remember in CFS-1 (a century ago) there was a fair addon that was pretty good...considering the lousy bugs that were in that sim. The p40 was lousy, but the P-47s and 51s were done by a true master, and the misns were historically based. You had to keepthe fighters away from the bombers at all costs, not chase them around for kills. a few bursts in thier direction would usually do it.....thier tactics in escort were interesting. I look forward to this. Would be a good way to educate folks....

I've definately always wanted a tuskegee airmen campaign.

I'd also like the nose art from some of their planes as well, but I cant seem to find the 99th anywhere in the regiment place for the planes in the US place.

Yes, Tuskegee Fighters from Abacus. I have it but haven't played since IL-2. Could never get into CFS 1 cause I was playing EAW at the time....

btw, a TA camp would be super, especially if we get an Italian map!

S! all. If anyone does. Please do not forget to add the Tuskegee Airmen Pilot skins at

Aces Art Work (http://www.leigh-kemp.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/Acepilots.htm)

With permission of course. I had a few coops made and I was working to link them together. My
external hardrive crashed and my credits for plane skins were lost. I had put the individual
planes with their respective pilot. A map of Italy would be so sweet. Oh well. Here is just another Idea. African-American voice actors. Intelligent, Strong, and way different than the
in game versions. I'd pay cash for somthing like that. When Abacus and Cfs1 had a free gift
for buying two additional add ons. Guess which add on I chose hands down. I still have the CD!

Bearcat, if there is ever an Italian map, I'll definitely have to make time to create a UQMG template for the Red Tails. I happened to meed a Tuskegee Airman and own a copy of "Fortress Delight - Red-tail Rendevous at Dawn", personally signed by Herbert E. Carter, 99th Fighter Sq. Good stuff.
