Any P-40 Scripted Campaign (or similar) To Be Released?

Recommended Posts

I rarely fly fighters. I fly Luftwaffe. But if I'm going to keep making content for this game I need to start familiarizing myself with the Soviet aircraft one by one.  

 

I just started looking into the P-40 on the eastern front and have an itch to purchase it.

 

It's a possibility it might happen. I mean the thought of 6 .50 cals and the German bombers seems... zesty.

For what it's worth I'd love a P-40 campaign as well.  It may not be the "best" fighter but it sure is fun to fly.  I love the cockpit layout and the 50's.

Its great but I never seem to be able to get any power out of it in MP so a less stressful scripted campaign would be great for me to get used to it. Id love to have one.

 

Im finding it great as a ground pounder though.

Exactly. I LOVE the MC.202 too. If I made a campaign for that it obviously wouldn't be historically accurate so I'm not sure how much of a turn off that would be to people..

Are you flying it on Expert?  If you fly it on easy mode it links the throttle and the prop adjuster together and it doesn't do a very good job of it.  You need to fly it like a Spit... put the prop adjustment to manual, then adjust to 2600 RPM and use the throttle to maintain the level of boost you want.  This is for continuous mode, adjust for combat and emergency.   When the throttle and prop are linked it gives you too much RPM and not enough manifold pressure.  Don't mean to offend you if you know this already... it isn't really a powerful plane to begin with anyway.

Originally planned on releasing my upcoming "Havoc Over the Caucasus" A-20 campaign in a P-40 version as well...however I learned a bit more about the time-lines/service dates/locations and realized that would be extremely non-historical...(but fun)

It would also require more work than simply converting to an IL2 or Pe-2 version, which will happen for sure. 

 

Nothing needs to change for the IL2/ version, however if you're flying a fighter then you'll behave differently/engage the enemy fighters rather then trying to get out of Dodge so quickly, which needs to be taken into

account in the build/logic...so a bit of work. Changes in triggers, subtitle messages...timing...do I keep the escort flights, etc. So a bit (or a lot) more time investment on top of the initial build.

You'd be flying a P-40 in a fictional squadron specializing in ground attack...not sure how many people would want that.

 

I take a lot of license with the A-20 campaign itself as it is, since it's just necessary for a variety of reasons for a 1942 campaign, including where the map covers.

(historical bases are further north out of the map area)

So a P-40 version, while wildly non-historical...there might still be a good reason to make it happen. With lots of truck convoys etc, two bombs and those .50 cals, 

it should be a good time. Still demand is a question, and if time investment to convert would pencil out.

 

I'll get the A-20/IL2 (Pe-2?) version finished an go from there, maybe solicit a few more opinions on the matter.

The build is already underway using the Pe-2 as a temporary stand-in. :)

For Tomahawk, I recall only a few missions from this campaign. She is without translation. But believe me, this is a very good campaign. It’s worth someone to take up the translation. ;)

Here mate. The campaign plays really nice. But be aware, the english trans. was made by me via google. So it could be funny to read from time to time. 😁
