Marauders at Midway v1

June 4th, 1942 0710 hrs
Flying from Midway, four B-26s of the 69th Bombardment Squadron are sent to attack the Japanese fleet. Each plane carries one fish, hanging from its belly.

Heading through the tracers, they spy the Akagi.

"The whole world was on fire, the only place that wasn't was across the deck of that carrier". At a height of only 15 feet, Muri flew down the deck of the Akagi. He feels too close to the enemy to be shot at. But Muri goggles at Akagi's battle flag, snapping from her mast. He has seen the blazing Rising Sun flag in newsreels, but never in real life. Now it€s the biggest thing he's ever seen.

Muri pulls out surrounded by Zeros. The Japanese tear up the B-26, Cpl. Mello staggers into the cockpit, and says "The plane's on fire and everybody's hit back there." Co-pilot Moore rushes back with a fire extinguisher to douse the blaze. Then he gives sulfa powder, and mans a gun.

Another great one from JR.

It's tough, mighty tough, but very, very immersive. Skimming the deck of the Japanese carrier is quite a thrill!

Another "gotta-have" mission. Get it now!

B-26? What did you use for the Marauder?

sorry i thought about a b-25 but thought the a-20's tail made it look closer to the b-25... in the readme text i did name the flyables as A-20 (B-26) but it's as historical as i can make it within the game until some future patch might possibly provide
