’SALWEEN‘ CONTENT UPDATE GOES LIVE!

Today’s Steam content update deserves a special mention on the Ace Maddox blog.

We’re proud to introduce another action-packed campaign mission, TIGERS IN THE GORGE, based on the events that took place in China during the Battle of the Salween River in May 1942. Of course, that’s not all, since we’ve also added more skins for the Japanese A6M2 “Zero” and Ki-27 “Nate” fighters, including a fictional Luftwaffe paint-job as well as one camouflage from the Thailand Air Force (Thailand was sort of occupied by Japan at the time, JFYI).

Now, concerning the new mission — as Japan’s mysterious elite unit, the 56th armored division of the “Red Dragons”, attempted to advance towards China’s wartime capital Chungking via the Burma Road and over the Salween River, a flight of bomb-equipped P-40Es led by none else than Tex Hill, managed to force-halt the enemy on the river bank by carrying out highly successful precision bombing (which was not even a concept at the time).

Few historians have noted the significance of the Salween Battle, nor that it was a key-strategic battle that if lost would have altered the outcome of World War 2 in its entirety, so its strategic importance ranks right up there with Stalingrad, El Alamein, and Midway.

Update overview:

  • New campaign mission of great historical importance added: TIGERS IN THE GORGE.
  • Japanese A6M2 “Zero” and Ki-27 “Nate” fighters have four (new) skins each now!
  • Adjusted the dogfight chase functionality a little again, and finally removed the “Metal Gear” sound effect since a few of you boys didn’t seem to appreciate it that much.
