Memoir ’44 New Flight Plan, the most aspiring expansion yet released

Mar 5 2019

Air supremacy was a constant challenge during World War II. In the Battle of France, the Luftwaffe’s powerful Stukas were a key component to the German’s blitzkrieg strategy that led them to victory. Over the English Channel, the heroism of RAF pilots saved their country from an invasion. In the skies of Kursk, Smolensk and Stalingrad, many Soviet pilots defended their land against German bombs. And when the Allied forces landed in Europe, it was under a constant aerial cover of fighters, fighter-bombers, and bombers. At that time, Allied air supremacy was at its pinnacle.

Find out Memoir 44 – New Flight Plan, a new expansion featuring aircraft figures.
