Im looking for a campaign that was done where you fly p-39's in the Guadalcanal map.

It was a great historical offline campaign. Anybody know the name of this one?

Cant seem to locate it over at M4T

Anybody? It had custom skins of I think shark mouth army air corps P-39's. It was a hugely popular campaign here awhile back.

I remember most early missions were intercepting Betty's.

I have searched far and wide but cannot find the thread or the campaign.

There was a decent campaign i played last year or perhaps even before , it was named "Cobra pilot" , you'd fly every type of 39 , starting with the USAAF's D1 , i might search and post the link here cause chances are it's the one you're looking for

Edit : ok found it , http://mission4today.com/index...&file=details&id=105 (http://mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads&file=details&id=105)

Do you mean the "Kokoda Campaign"?

Sounds a bit like what you're asking...but its not just the P-39 that you fly during the campaign.

No I strictly remember that it was Guadalcanal based on the 4.08 stock map.

The first mission your flying in to Henderson field with a B-17 as a guide, Its an air start mission. Came with some cool skins too, A white tailed P-39.

The campaign i posted , you fly over Guadalcanal and you intercept bettys , there is also 90 missions , the white-tail skin should be possible to find on some site like flying legends

I remember that there is a page here on this site that had tons of screen shots and info about it. It was pre mod era so it was at least late 07' early 08'. The page was hugely popular and sold the campaign well. If and when I find that campaign you very helpfull friends will smack yourselves in the forehead and say....Ohhh yea that one!

That's correct. "Cactus Diary" is a F4F Wildcat campaign by Bird_Brain, IIRC.

I keep a list of all the campaigns I've downloaded, and the only one that I have that comes close to the description is "Cobra Pilot", which does have some Guadalcanal missions.

If I remember right, "Cactus Cobra" is a modded campaign in which you fly the P-400 on a lot of ground-pounding missions, just as in real life. My old "Cobra Pilot" campaign is not historically accurate, in that at Guadalcanal you're flying a P-39N with the 37mm cannon primarily on missions against raiding Betties and Zeros--essentially the job that the Marine F4Fs did historically. If you're looking for historical accuracy, Cobra Pilot is not the deal for you (but hopefully fun anyway).

Yea it was really fun , although it was a long time ago i flew it , i especially appreciated the length of the campaign , thanks very much Eldon for that one http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Would be cool if you have another one like this with the P-51 in particular , as i struggle to find a good and lenghty P-51 human made campaign , i already finished "2 litte DUCs " campaign and cannot find another at the moment , cheers http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Maybe it was Cactus Cobras. Gonna try it and see!
I could have sworn it was pre mod but maybe not.
