S3#80 – Battle of Hamburg; ETO - Summer 1943
For the first time RAF Bomber Command and the USAAF 8th Air Force would target a major industrial centre of Germany together bombing the important port of Hamburg. Operation Gomorrah would pit the growing might of the Allied bomber force against the still daunting Luftwaffe fighter defences. The arrival of the new P47D Razorback with longer range tanks would allow the US to extend their bomber escort range while the deadly Mosquito night fighter would hunt the hunters over German soil.
This series will feature strategic bombing, escort and fighter interception both during day and night frames. A smaller amount of tactical anti-shipping and intruding missions will be available for the Allies while the Luftwaffe will debut the new Ju88C night fighter.
Series begins Apr 28 at 8:30PM Eastern/5:30PM Pacific in the S3 Arena using the tried and true ETO terrain.
