Operation Desert Foothold

by JonathanRL


In 1956, right before the engagement at Suez and Operation Musketeer, Israel requested further Air Units in their

vicinity as added saftey in case more Arab Nations would join the War. Brittish and French Air Squadrons are

placed in the Kingdom of Dhimar under the pretext of training the Dhimarian Air Force. This is given further

credibility by offering a large number of Hawker Hunter Aircraft at low prices. Dhimar, feeling pressured

and threathened by the Empire of Paran, agrees and - as per contract - request Brittish and French aid

to defend their oil fields until such a time Dhimar can defend itself.


Meanwhile, Egypt who are fighting Israel are not fooled by this show. Suspecting that the French and Brittish

will be used to engage them in the near future, deployes a single flight of MiG-15s and encourages their ally

to launch a suprise attack upon Dhimar, promising them Dhimar and its oil wells if Paran succeeds.


The Empire of Paran Air Force consisting mostly of Spitfires and P51s with elite units flying Hunters and

possesing a considerable force of Canberras makes ready for the suprise attack against the outnumbered Allies...

SF2 and both Expansion Packs are required for this campaign. A merged installation is preferred.

To give a Aircraft a cockpit, open the Aircraft Cockpit you wish to use, Copy the CockpitDataFile=Hunter1_cockpit.ini

(This is an example, any will suffice), open the Ini of the Aircraft you cannot fly, copy the line under [AircraftData].

Voila. Flyable.


The F-84F Mega Pack is HIGHLY Recommended for this Campaign:
