The first combat mission of the "Flying Tigers"

On the 20th of December 1941, a Chinese air force unit of volunteers from the United States under the informal designation "Flying Tigers" received its first baptism of fire. The “Tigers” had to repel an attack of Japanese bombers flying from the south towards the Burma road, which was of strategic importance for supply delivery to China.

In this raid, the fighter group opened its own battle count and the Japanese were unable to deliver their bombs to their target, instead, turning and fleeing whilst losing four aircraft.

Feel like one of the legendary squadron pilots in the P-40 series fighter!
