The Task at Hand: Win the Air War Over
The German war machine has just conquered all of France. Hitler's hordes
look out across the English Channel to the White Cliffs of Dover and are ready
to cross and crush Britain. Only one obstacle remains in their path: The
British Royal Air Force!

RAF and order your Spitfires and Hurricanes to "scramble" against German Me109s
