I've been playing the DCG US Navy pilot campaign and I'm now playing the Tarawa campaign. However I'm finding this campaign to be unwinnable.
Despite seemingly wining every mission that I play and on top of this destroying every enemy target of opportunity on the island (including stationary aircraft and enemy vehicle convoys) the campaign doesn't end because my ground forces for some reason never occupy the campaign's objective which is the Betio Airfield.
Basically what happens is that the frontline advances (in my favour/US Navy) and after a few missions the friendly troops indeed land on Betio (and a ground battle issues) but my tanks even if they survive and nearby enemy units are destroyed they never take the airfield which is just right next to where the friendly forces lands (if there are enemy planes taking off, these friendly ground forces sometimes destroy them).
And worse even, not only the friendly forces don't take the Betio Airfield but after some missions the frontline recedes and the friendly tanks on the island seem to disappear with no apparent reason.
Then after a few more missions the frontline advances once again and once again the same situation happen (friendly troops land on Betio, they occupy the are west of the airfield but never advance and take the airfield and finally the frontline receded once again). Resuming my campaign seems to have entered into an endless loop.
So is this a bug or an I missing something?
Thanks in advance for any replies.
I'm playing with IL2 1946 patched to 4.12.2m with SAS ModAct activator 5.30 (but no mods installed) and DCG 3.48 (Beta 17).
