Historical air-combat action game to re-create air-battles of American pilots secretly flying combat for China in World War 2.
Ace Maddox today announced Flying Tigers: Shadows Over China, an air-combat action game for PC based on the historical events of America’s secret volunteer squadrons that flew against Japan in the China-Burma-India (CBI) Theatre of WW2.
Get ready to swoop the skies of Southeast Asia as Flying Tigers: Shadows Over China reawakens a diverse set of historical WW2 air-battles, including the Japanese Christmas-raids on Rangoon in 1941, the Flying Tigers’ first combat over Kunming in China, the Battle of the Salween Gorge, “Hump” escort missions over the Himalayas, the Invasion of Malaya, and the Japanese conquest of Burma, to name a few.
Secretly recruited under President Roosevelt’s authority in 1941, the Flying Tigers were officially known as the “American Volunteer Group”. The clandestine unit was commanded by Claire Lee Chennault, a resigned US military-aviator who had been advising the Chinese Air Force since 1937.
Flying Tigers: Shadows Over China is scheduled for release in the summer of 2015.
