Wing Leader: Origins 1936-1942 is the third expansion for GMT's Wing Leader system. Origins dives into the thrilling battles of the inter-war and early-war period. This expansion matches biplanes against fast monoplanes in combat over Spain, China, and Poland. Nationalist CR.32s face off against 'Red' I-15s over Madrid. Soviet volunteers fly 'Chaikas' against Japanese 'Claudes' above China. Bf 109s dive into streams of British Wellingtons, Halifaxes, and Manchesters while defending battleships in Brest.
New Aircraft range from pre-war German warplanes (such as the He 46 and He 51) to Polish fighters and bombers (such as the PZL P.11) and American Curtiss fighters (such as the CW-21 Interceptor).
