Wing Leader: Blitz 1939-1942
Wing Leader: Blitz is the first expansion for GMT’s Wing Leader system. Blitz adds more aircraft and scenarios to play while expanding the game into new theaters of war. Fly Dewoitine D.520 fighters into the cauldron of battle against German Heinkels. Lead Japanese Ki-27s against the Soviets in the skies over Nomonhan. Direct Royal Navy Fulmars and Martlets at Italian torpedo bombers in Operation Pedestal. Launch P-39D Airacobras against Japanese invasion forces approaching New Guinea.
New Aircraft will also include the Soviet I-16, I-153 and MiG-3, the Curtiss Hawk 75 fighter, and most of the major French fighters including the M.S.406 and MB.152C.
In addition to new aircraft and scenarios, Wing Leader: Blitz features a brand-new campaign system, which recreates air actions in the early weeks of the German invasion of the Soviet Union. The campaign comes with its own 11 x 17” campaign map, while special markers for tracking bomb damage are included for the first time. The campaign will confront the German and Soviet players with tough decisions on targeting, attack planning and raid execution in the desperate days of Operation Barbarossa.
Wing Leader: Blitz brings the major air combats of the Blitzkrieg right to your gaming table!
