This was one of the most famous fighters of the theater and there is no campaign game for it, I was just wondering why. Also, if a patch came out could one of this be added? Id also like to see bigger fleet sizes with more ships than just carriers and like one destroyer

The USAAF 1945 PTO campaigns have the P-38L as a selectable plane.

Currently in PF, that theater aside, there is no historical precedent for the Lightning anywhere. There are no maps for it...

To fly campaigns for the P-38 you have to purchase BOE. If I recall correctly, Oleg made a deal with the people who developed the NGEN and DGEN campaign generators. They would develop these for free for Oleg and he would allow them to produce a seperate add-on for Aces. As part of the deal, Oleg did not include any campaigns for the US planes with the Aces upgrade.

I bought BOE (available from Justflight.com) and have enjoyed it. I believe it now sells for about $23 US.

So once you do that where does one find these missions or select them. I fly primaraly online so I am a bit weak when it comes to generating a campaign. Even online all i've generated is what is available on the stock list. I have no clue on how to do more with it.

If You are looking for a high customizable offline campaign I suggest you to try Lowengrin DCG. Using that you can select your flyable plane and modifing many aspect of the simulation.

DCG rocks. Its got dozens of brilliant features but mainly:

You can set the cruise altitude for your flights. Its incredible just how much better the American side of the Pacific plays from 20,000 feet.

T_O_A_D The new campaign should show up in your
USAAF Dynamic campaigns list. But after looking at my origonal post i maid an error in the Campaign name it should look like this.
Guadal2 Guadalcanal, October 1942

I forgot to capitalize the O in October.
