Here is mission #1 Brief

Welcome to Operation "Weserubung"¯
The invasion of Norway

Today's mission is complicated and dangerous.
We will be relying on the Fallschirmjager to capture the airfield.
If they are unsuccessful, plan on swimming home.
Also the British are not taking kindly to our presents in Norway.
They are expected to attack our landing force and try to intercept our bombers.

Red Group 12 x 109E4Bs
Air start
Load out: Default

You will be escorting the Ju52's carrying the Fallschirmjager.
Once the Para drop is complete the Ju52's can make their way home alone.
Get on station above our naval task force.
Protect our ships at all cost!

White Group 12x 109E4B
Air start
Load out: Default

You will be escorting the He111s to their target.
Make sure they are able to deliver their payload on target.

ZG Group 8 (Human slots) 24 He 111's-6
Air start

Your target is the supply depot at Byrknes (I-6)
Its destruction will take away the enemies ability to launch a quick counter attack.

Note: Fight leaders You are free to attack the HMS "Rodney"¯ weapons and tatics at you discretion

All Fights

We will be relying on the Fallschirmjager to capture the airfield at Herdla J2.
The Fallschirmjager will need approximately 20 minutes to secure runway "090"¯

This sounds like really cool, but why use the Bf-109? It was not used in Weserübung, as it didn't have long enough range. Use Bf-110s from 3./ZG 76 instead. They attacked Sola airport, wich closest resemble Herdla.

For paratroopers, Luftwaffe deployed 12 Ju-52 from 7./KGr.z.v.b.V.1. As escort was assigned 8 Bf-110. They had to land after the field was occupied, as they had not enouhg fuel to return to Germany. The airfield was also bombed by 8 Ju-88's from 8./KG4.

10 minutes after the paratroopers came 52 Ju-52s from KGr.z.v.b.V. 104. Later another 52 junkers from KGr.z.v.b.V. 106.

This is a mini campaign 4 or 5 missions.
Non Historical but based on some actual events.
Its basically a warm up for Caucuses/Stalingrad 42-43 Campaign that will run much of the winter.
(18 or so missions)
Given we dont have the right planes (1940)in the sim I have to work with what I have and keep it fun and challenging for the players.
The missions are based on tactical objectives with the emphasis being on teamwork. The next campaign will feature Bf110's. We will be picking up right where we left off last winter

If I can make a suggestion, just substitute the Mustang for both the BF-109E and 110. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
