Cäsar's Failure: Baltic Front 1944

Cäsar's Failure: Baltic Front 1944

AeroScale :: REVIEW La-5/7 vs Fw 190

In the Summer of 1944, the Baltic Front was busy. Narva had fallen after fierce fighting and Talinn seemed to be next. The Soviet Union launched a massive offensive against the German forces occupying the region. With over 2,000 aircraft, the 3rd Air Army flew countless sorties in support of troops movements, tank operations, as well as bombing raids on cities such as Talinn and Riga. New to the VVS arsenal was the Lavochkin La-7, which made its debut over Estonia and Latvia in September of 1944 with 63 GIAP. In the way of defense, the Luftwaffe had JG 54, JG 51, SG 3, and some reconnaissance units. Despite being heavily outnumbered, JG 54's experten were able to claim dozens of victories in a few short months. By September, the Wehrmacht attempted a counter-offensive named Operation Cäsar, but it was doomed from the beginning and resulted in the German forces being pressed all the way back to Riga. 

This event will recreate the daunting task of defending against the onslaught that JG 54 and JG 51 was given.
