This project is possible due to the work of many other authors and creators of FS community. AI planes, Airport sceneries, military objects libraries, photoscenery & autogen, aircraft liveries, etc. are in use to recreate the WF 1944 combat sorties scenarios. See full credits list.

Basic Concept & General Info

This project mainly concerns users that want to log flight hours* in a WWII setting as a squadron's pilot in FSX/P3Dv3, using weapon addons like Tacpack to fullfil their sorties tasks. User will be able to fly in a variety of sorties, mainly of the ground attack type and destroy targets like bridges, trains, moving vehicles and ships, fuel & ammo depots while at the same time, real threats from ground / surface like Flak fire as also from airborne hostile fighter and bomber AIs will challenge his return to Base.

In addition, an FSX@War Normandy theater will provide target destruction consistency through out subsequent sorties for a campaign style of flying in this interactive environment. AI Wingman's help will be critical, since he can detect ground, surface and aerial targets and threats and vocally inform No 1 user, thus helping player to spot and attack the targets.

* User may keep a logbook of his sorties and targets destroyed.

Autogen from F-BMPL.com

For anyone interested of installing this photoscenery, since has great resolution thus it's big, you'll be
needing to download only the "Part_1" (this is west France, while part_2's are east France) from 31N
down to 28N (or even southern if you prefer). 30N is at the D-Day Invasion beaches.
