    "It's May 1944, and the battle to secure New Guinea from Japanese occupation is all but over.
    The once feared Japanese empire is now buckleing under the pressure being applied by the combined forces of both the United States and British Comonwealth.

    General Douglas MacArthur is now planning ahead for the next major offensive... the invaison of the Philippines.
    However, one last enemy out-post in the Philippine Sea, based amongst the Kepulauan islands must be dealt with first before any such invaision can begin.

    Used mostly as a staging area for distributing supplies to their forward garrisons throughout the reigon, this network of islands consisting of at least three airfields and two harbours also serves as an important naval base to the enemy, and as such is well defended by a number of land based fighter and bomber units in addition to the warships currently stationed there.

    While American air and ground forces prepare for this upcoming battle, the ANZAC's will be mobilized and sent in in advance to neutralise the threat that this group of islands poses to our main invaision force.



    Two fictional campaigns flying RNZAF 21 SQN Corsairs (20 Missions) and RAAF 30 SQN Beaufighters (15 Missions)

    I've been working on this for a while now, but had to shelve it a couple of times due to a number of different problems that I encountered.
    Anyway its just about ready to go, so I figered I'd post some random shots to give you all a taste of what it will look like.

    Thanks to Zues-cat, Dubbo, and Rhino, testing is completed and has been improved by adding a number of their great suggestions. (Cheers again guys!)
    Also, cheers to vpmedia, Greg Boyington & Jesters Ink for giving me permission to use some of their awesome skins... as they really add a nice touch to these missions.

    LMAO Dubbo!! ... I guess I'll have to explain it in the readme for the Antipodean challenged.
    Heh, I considered holding it off untill ANZAC day... but im too impulsive to have to wait until April.

    I'm hoping to have it ready for download from Airwarfare.com by the weekend... barring anything unforseen.
    I'll update this thread once its up though.

    Please do keep us a-"breast" of latest developments (sort of echoing the "poultry" theme of previous posts ). Us ANZACs are raring to take to the skies! I notice there are aircraft carriers featuring in many shots though. I rather suspect that once I get my hands on the controls of a Corsair (assuming, of course, that I manage to chew my way through these cursed restraining straps) that Gallipoli will look as peaceful and serene as a Sunday school picnic come landing time.
    Yes, had PF been available when I joined these forums I fear I wouldn't have become the frighteningly intelligent, erudite and charming net-denizen that you all know and love as "FlatSpinMan" but rather " Fool-Who-Continually-Fails-to-Land-On-Carriers" (to use my full, Native American title).

    Anyway, fullspeed ahead, Achilles, and d a m n the torpedoes!!
