Warlord Games Taking Pre-Orders for Corsair Squadron for Blood Red Skies

Warlord Games is rolling some new pre-releases out onto the tarmac for Blood Red Skies. First up, they have their F4U Corsair Squadron. You can head over and get this vaunted squadron delivered to you as soon as they're available by putting your name down on the list now.

From the website:

The Vought F4U Corsair was designed to be a carrier-based fighter but flying from rough island airfields in tropical conditions was no impediment. Battles over Guadalcanal proved their superiority over their Japanese opponents.

The F4U flew over 60,000 operational sorties (only 9,000 sorties flown from carrier decks) for the U.S. Navy & Marines and U.S. Navy through the war (some 40% of total fighter sorties), with only 9,581 sorties (15%) flown from carrier decks. Corsairs claimed 2,140 air combat victories against 189 losses to enemy aircraft, for an overall kill ratio of over 11:1. It also proved its versatility, delivering over 70% of the total bombs dropped by U.S. fighters during the war.
