For those anticipating the release of Team Fusion’s Desert Wings – Tobruk there’s a little more good news to celebrate. The developers have talked about how the expansion will add to the Cliffs of Dover Blitz experience and extend the campaign from the Battle of Britain on to the Channel War of 1941. Plus we have some nice new screenshots.
From desert to the battle over the channel
The addition of new aircraft makes the 1941 channel battle a reality for what might be the first time in flight sim history. While the Battle of Britain in 1940 is well known, the on-going battles over the channel for the next three years are rarely given much attention in historical flight simulators.
Now, with a Spitfire Mark V and various models of the Bf109F series coming to Desert Wings, there’s a new opportunity to make use of these in a more temperate setting. The current map in Cliffs of Dover more than able to support these encounters which means that the stage is set and Team Fusion is taking of the opportunity advantage to simulate this lesser known part of the air war in Europe during WWII.
A couple more screenshots were also released by the team on their Twitter page of some Blenhiems on the attack. Have a look!
