We have been invaded!
German forces have gained a foothold in Kent in the south-east part of the British mainland. Manston airfield has been overrun and is now operated by the Luftwaffe.
Canterbury is being brutally bombed and the Germans are advancing west with the intent to capture the town.
Trapped at the trainyard in Canterbury is a train with four fuel tanks. Fuel which is crucial for the continous operation of the allied airforce.
A group of JU88 bombers have been spotted 50 miles east north-east of Canterbury. Their goal is most certainly to bomb the trapped train. This threat must be neutralized at all costs.
Scouts have spotted an Artillery installment in Wingham to the East of Canterbury. Canterbury is being barraged with artillery, something that must come to an end.
German fighters on combat air patrols can be expected throughout the area. BF109 and FW190 stationed at Manston have been seen roaming the countryside.
Allied air operations are carried out from Detling (Spits and Mossies) and High Halden (P51 and P47). Pick a loadout of your choice and good hunting!
