S3 #46 - Helga's Loyal Airmen - Germany Winter 1944-45

The end is near. Germany is done but Hitler will not admit it. In the ruins of the Reich the few remaining experienced pilots fly in the most advanced fighters the Luftwaffe has seen but numbers and time is against them. Day in and day out with airfields bombed and German skies now ruled by the massive allied airforces these loyal airmen continue to fight and die.

In this series the Allies have the numbers and start advantage but the Luftwaffe are defending under a radar umbrella and finally have their best aircraft in the game. Special ops will pit the sneakiest and smartest on both sides as they conduct precision attacks deep into enemy airspace. HLA is mainly a bombers into Germany series with escorts fighting of relentless Luftwaffe attacks and bleeding bombers flying home on two engines. More attacks on airfields and radar should occur and pressure to land safely will be increased for the Luftwaffe.
