S3 #45 - Wild Horses Roam - Germany Winter 1943-44

The 8th Air Force has been blooded hitting close targets in France and the Low Countries and decides to turn to those more important industrial complexes in Germany. After some attempts at unescorted raids that proved very costly new escort fighters are brought in to fight the Luftwaffe in the air over Germany

In this series the Allies have the numbers advantage and new faster more long range fighters but the Luftwaffe are defending under a radar umbrella and get to defend in depth. Special ops will pit the sneakiest and smartest on both sides as they conduct precision attacks deep into enemy airspace. Not as many missions as in the previous series but more dangerous and with the pressure on fewer pilots. WHR is mainly a bombers into Germany series with escorts fighting of relentless Luftwaffe attacks and bleeding bombers flying home on two engines.
