Welcome to the Operation Sealion Mission Pack for Cliffs of Dover! These missions are minutely

Welcome to the Operation Sealion Mission Pack for Cliffs of Dover! These missions are minutely based on the notes from the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst wargame conducted in 1974 to simulate a September 1940 invasion by Germany. In this exercise, each side (played by British and German officers respectively) was based in a command room, and the actual moves plotted on a scale model of SE England constructed at the School of Infantry. The panel of umpires included Luftwaffe ace Adolf Galland, Admiral Friedrich Ruge, Air Chief Marshal Sir Christopher Foxley-Norris, Rear Admiral Edward Gueritz, General Heinz Trettner and Major General Glyn Gilbert. The main problems the Germans face are that a) the Luftwaffe has not yet won air supremacy; b) the possible invasion dates are constrained by the weather and tides (for a high water attack) and c) it has taken until late September to assemble the necessary shipping.

Each mission in the BoB Game Hub Sealion mission pack is designed with multiple flyable aircraft available to players flying either RAF or Luftwaffe. Wherever practical, mission design includes both ground starts and airstarts. Mission design takes an 'open battlefield' approach - the player will be given an objective, but once airborne, you have full freedom of operation to either prosecute the assigned target, or attack other targets of opportunity.

When the set is complete, it will be released as a package, but for now I am releasing it day by day, as each day’s missions are completed.

I am aiming for nothing less than 'epic' with these missions.

Enjoy!

FAQ

Q. I want to fly for the Luftwaffe but the default aircraft seems to be RAF (or vice versa). Can I change the default?

A. Yes! The reason this pack has been created as single missions, rather than a campaign, is so that you can more easily customize

to your heart’s desire. On the mission briefing page, click the CUSTOM button. Then see below for what you can customize.

Q. I want to fly a Spitfire rather than a Hurricane / an Emil rather than a Bf110. Can I?

A. Yes! If the aircraft is player flyable, simply click CUSTOM (see above) at the briefing screen then click on the picture of the pilot

for the aircraft you want to fly. You can change this aircraft to whatever flyable aircraft you want by clicking the picture of the aircraft. (A. below). Check the briefing to see what mission this aircraft is assigned. (B. below).

Q. I want to change other mission parameters like time, weather or realism

A: To change time of day or weather, enter new values at D. To change loadout click the ‘default(stock)’ or custom loadout indicated in A. To change realism values, click C.

Q. How can I see what the mission or target is for each aircraft in the mission? This will help me decide which one I want to fly.

A. Check the mission and targets assigned to each flight at B. When you are airborne, use the map and enable waypoint icons to see

which route you are assigned to patrol. You do not have to follow the assigned route, but the missions are scripted for aircraft/players to follow the waypoints as ordered, which was RAF and LW airforce doctrine at the time unless fighters were

assigned a ‘free hunt’.

Q. I want more aircraft in the missions or my PC can’t cope with the number of aircraft in this mission

A. You can increase the number of aircraft in each flight in the drop down box next to the pilot (see A.). This may degrade PC

performance. You can decrease the number of aircraft in each flight (or zero it completely) the same way to increase PC

performance. It is suggested you start by decreasing ALLIED aircraft to preserve the focus of the integrity of the sortie you are flying yourself.

(I will add to this FAQ as I get more questions so pls submit them at the SIMHQ or AIRWARFARE CoD forums).
