Breaking Gustav - 1944

 ?Breaking Gustav? 1944

After  Operations Baytown, Slapstick, and Avalanche the Allies has a secure hold on southern Italy.  Between the Allies and Rome stood 15 Divisions of the German army.  They army had a fortified line of defenses from East coast to the West coast south of Rome with orders from Hitler to hold the Allies at bay.  This was known as the Gustav Line.
After gaining air superiority, Allied air forces where tasked with breaking supply lines and weakening the Gustav line.  Railroads, communication, and bridges where the primary targets of this effort.  Over 1000 sorties per day hit targets in Northern Italy and gave close support to ground troops.
This FSO will attempt to recreate some of this action with playability concerns taken into account.  As we have no targetable bridges, railroads  Factories and bases will be used as targets.
