After two years on the drawing board, D-Day was the most meticulously planned operation in military history - a logistical effort on a scale never seen before or since. On June 6, 1944, 3,000 planes dropped 23,000 airborne troops behind German lines, and 7,000 ships delivered around 20,000 military vehicles and 130,000 allied soldiers to storm five heavily defended French beaches in an all-or-nothing assault on Nazi-occupied Europe. Once on the shore, the troops had to negotiate two million mines buried in the sand, 46,000 fearsome beach obstacles, and hundreds of miles of barbed wire while dodging the shells and bullets fired by 40,000 German defenders.

Focusing on the most important strip of Omaha beach that day - the exit at Vierville-sur-Mer - D-DAY 360 strips D-Day back to its raw data to reveal how the odds of victory, in the greatest gamble of World War II, swung on what happened over a five-hour period on a five mile stretch of French coastline. Data gathered though forensic laser scanning, 3D computer modeling, and eye-witness accounts bring the battlefield to life as never before.

Nice one Gunter ~ Thanks for sharing that.
I read in this month's FlyPast that the funds needed to buy "That's All Brother" have been raised by the Commemorative Air Force!
They are hoping to restore her to flying condition by 2019 (75th Anniversary D-Day).
That will be something!

Not really hard to do a DDay mission in the game, the DLC would definitely be best to use, but for IFA2 you could use Vandevoorde's templates to set you up,
I have listed on the MR the following templates that will work for DDay mission:
  • Juno Beach
  • Point Du Hoc
  • Omaha
You could even setup brecourt which was when the paratroopers dropped behind enemy lines before DDay to take out the artillery that was to shoot at the beaches,
see this page here:

This is for IFA2, for IFA3 theres Omaha beach mission here http://www.missionrepository.com/workshop-missions-29 (workshop mission).

broken link

There's also a few more missions there that have used the Omaha Beach Island as a base, and not forgetting Santa Six' St Laurent Template

While we're on the subject there; is not that many templates available for IFA3 Mission Editors...[frown]  Yet?

Link only breaks when more missions are added to that page so for example the link  http://www.missionrepository.com/workshop-missions-29
means theres 29 missions, change that to 30
http://www.missionrepository.com/workshop-missions-30
and the link works, as theres 30 missions there now.

Either way its all on the menu if I say IFA3 Workshop missions then you should be able to find the page.

Ya wheres Vandevoorde with IFA3 and some templates? he busy with RL?

He has been really quiet [frown] 
  I have a mission all lined up using the Fallschirmjager from @GEIST in a North African setting (Shapur running with @A3MP). 
I was more than pleasantly surprised to read this = that the Fallschirmjager DID operate in North Africa alongside Rommel's Afrika Korps.
What is RL?
