Mission




  • Missions based on my favourite books
  • content_pasteI have always enjoyed reading military novels and techno-thrillers, especially those in which air combat figures heavily. I also enjoy building and flying missions for combat flight sims. A few years back I decided to combine these interests and build some missions based on scenes from a few of my favorite military action novels.

    At the time (1996), I was flying mainly in Jane's ATF with the NATO Fighters expansion disc. It contained a good mix of flyable aircraft, terrain areas, and ground objects as well as a pretty decent mission builder. Since then, all of the aircraft in ATF/NATO Fighters (and more) have been released in Jane's Fighters Anthology (JFA). I have recently tested these missions in JFA, and they still work. So read the books -- fly the books -- have fun. If you build missions for other sims based on these books, please let me know."""

  • 1941, Dec 7 - Intercept
  • content_pasteA flight of Japanese a/c overflew Haleiwa as I climbed into the P-40. It took a few minutes to catch up with them, by which time I was over the harbour and all hell was breaking loose! Smoke trails were everywhere as FLAK and cannon took their toll.

  • content_paste11 kills on this mission! Woo hoo ! That has to be a personal best! Mind you - I did use over 8,000 rounds of ammunition (using unlimited ammo) and I only had a 4 % hit rate.

  • 1941, Dec 7 - Escort
  • content_pasteIt was a 90 mile flight to Pearl and an ideal opportunity to practise a bit of formation flying. The SBD's held a nice steady box formation at 1500 feet.

  • content_pasteAlthough I tried the mission several times I couldn't: A - defend the bombers, B - survive... and that's not a criticism - this was a fun mission.

  • 1941, Dec 7 - Intercept
  • content_pasteA scramble in the F-4F and my first move was to crash head on! Tried again and my wingtip was shot off on the first pass. Next time up friendly FLAK damamged my control surfaces os I limped back to land on the Enterprise, Meanwhie all hell was breaking loose and some unlucky pilot collided with me as I turned to finals. Several attempts later and I managed to stay in one piece and apparently help to drive off most of the Japanese Dive Bombers... satisfied but weary I landed on the carrier.... only just !

  • 1941, Dec 8 -Search and Destroy
  • content_pasteVery heavy FLAK in this mission - each time my plane sustained grievous damage. Needless to say I didn't hit the carrier once either. Definitely a challenge!
