Pacific Fighters Mission - Coop for 4/8 players


On 7 April 1943, Marine Lieutenant James E Swett in an F4F-4 Wildcat called "Melvin Massacre" took off from Henderson field leading an element of VMF-221.


28 ?Wildcats? of VMF-221, 8 F4U-1s of VMF-124 and 6 P-38Fs of the USAAF?s 12th FS mission that day were to protect the fleet from an estimated 195 Japanese "Zekes" and "Vals"


Upon approaching Tulagi Lt. Swett found 67 D3A2 "Vals" and about 110 "Zekes" starting their attack. Accelerating, he quickly outdistanced his wingmen who were then jumped by the "Zekes" so with no one to help him he waded into the fray.


When he came out the other end he was wounded, had no ammunition left, an engine shot up bad enough that it would eventually seize up on him, and 7 confirmed and 1 probable D3A2s downed by his guns


For this Lt James Elms Swett earned a Medal of Honor. Can you do the same? Let me know what you think?
