The Continuation War, which as its name suggests continued after the Winter War of 1939-40, lasted for most of the war in the Karelian Isthmus. The war between the Finns and Soviets eventually became a sort of trench war fought in the lowlands of Karelia. Various defensive lines were created by the Finns who were completely defensive. The stalemate lasted until May of 1944 when the Red Army began an offensive on the VT-Line (Vamelsuu - Taipale). On June 12, the line was completely breached and two days later, the Finns were in full retreat. The port city of Vyborg was in reach for the Soviets when the Finnish Army requested aid from Germany. Germany answered by sending a battalion of tank destroyers and an infantry division along with materiel such as Panzerfausts, anti-tank guns, and anti-aircraft guns.

Also sent to Finland was a small cohort of pilots and aircraft called Gefechtsverband Kuhlmey (Detachment Kuhlmey). This detachment was comprised of pilots and aircraft from SG 3, SG 5, JG 54, and NaGR 5. As the aerial bombardments and anti-tank missions increased, the need for more fighters grew. In the small amount of time that Detachment Kuhlmey was operating in Finalnd, some 200 Soviet aircraft were shot down.This event seeks to simulate the intense aerial action over the Battle of Tali-Ihantala on the Karelian Isthmus.
