1940- In pursuit of Air Supermacy: Aerial Warfare in the Battle of Britain

The Battle of Britain (German: Luftschlacht um England) is the name given to the air campaign waged by the German Air Force (Luftwaffe) against the United Kingdom during the summer and autumn of 1940. The objective of the campaign was to gain air superiority over the Royal Air Force (RAF), especially Fighter Command. The name derives from a famous speech delivered by Prime Minister Winston Churchill in the House of Commons;"The Battle of France is over. I expect the Battle of Britain is about to begin..."
The Battle of Britain was the first major campaign to be fought entirely by air forces, and was the largest and most sustained aerial bombing campaign up until that date. From July 1940 coastal shipping convoys and shipping centres, such as Portsmouth were the main targets; one month later the Luftwaffe shifted its attacks to RAF airfields and infrastructure. As the battle progressed the Luftwaffe also targeted aircraft factories and ground infrastructure. Eventually the Luftwaffe resorted to attacking areas of political significance and using terror bombing tactics.
The failure of Germany to achieve its objectives of destroying Britain's air defences, or forcing Britain to negotiate an armistice or an outright surrender is considered both its first major defeat and the crucial turning point in the war. If Germany had gained air superiority, Adolf Hitler might have launched Operation Sealion, an amphibious and airborne invasion of Britain.

This one suprised me by not lagging. Or maybe it was just my better computer?

Waaayyy too easy. The objective is to survive, but the Germans didn't even go for my airfields!

Again, Tomba blows me away with his new scenario. How do you even think these monstrosities up? Or even find the time to make them?

Beautiful map. Super huge, super accurate, super rating.

Story/Instructions: 4
I really like how you incorporated some of Winston Churchill's quotes. Very straightforward instructions as well.

Additional Comments:
I kept getting warning messages every time I got re inforcements, because my airports would all be full. And it would say that my planes were crashing. But, all in all, it was a fun scenario.
