The focus shifts to tactical support missions on Germany’s Eastern Front, 1941 - 1945 in this module. Sturmoviks dive on panzer columns while Me-109s sweep in to ensure the advance continues. Stukas equipped with 37mm cannon strafe massive Soviet armored formations, trying to stem the unstoppable tides. This expansion booklet contains statistics for 57 aircraft, additional rules for low level AA, strafing, 9 scenarios, and a Kursk campaign. This is not a complete game, you must have Red Sun, Blue Sky.
