Warbirds, November 11th, Tunisia Campaign


(From Wikipedia)

Operation Torch

American troops land on an Algerian beach during Operation Torch.
In July 1942, the Allies, discussed relatively small-scale amphibious operations to land in northern France during 1942 (Operation Sledgehammer, which was the forerunner of Operation Roundup, the main landings in 1943), but agreed that these operations were impractical and should be deferred.[4] Instead it was agreed that landings would be made to secure the Vichy territories in North Africa (Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia) and then to thrust east to take the Axis forces in the Western Desert in their rear.[5] An Allied occupation of the whole of the North African coast would open the Mediterranean to Allied shipping, releasing the huge capacity required to maintain supplies around the circuitous route via the Cape of Good Hope. On 8 November, Operation Torch landed Allied forces in Algeria (at Oran and Algiers) and Morocco (at Casablanca) with the intention that once Vichy forces in Algeria had capitulated, an advance would be made to Tunis some 800 km (500 mi) to the east.

Panzer IV skin available?

Image

With the M-3 in production, American designers set to work creating a medium tank with a turret that could carry a 75mm gun.
It was the M4, commonly known as the Sherman.

The Sherman became the main battle tank of both the American and British armies. They hoped to use it in the same way the
Soviets used the T-34, producing overwhelming numbers with minimum variation, sticking with a solid design. However,
by the end of the war, German advances were making the Sherman look less effective.

The Sherman was in production in time to feature in the Operation Torch landings and subsequent fighting.

Will there be aircraft used in the invasion?

This F4F-3 is displayed in the pre-war markings in which it was originally painted when it flew from the carrier USS Ranger during the
Neutrality Patrols protecting U.S. shipping in the western Atlantic Ocean in the months before the United States formally entered World War II.

This plane shows the Neutrality Patrol (1941) nose star and has the insignia of Fighting Squadron Four (the "Red Rippers") of VF-4,
which was later changed to VF-41. The USS RANGER served in the Atlantic during Operation Torch (invasion of North Africa), Nov. 1942.

Sorry that the "Grim Reapers" squadron flew in the Pacific, but you might choose this F4F-4 for Operation Torch anyway.
