I would recommend the following missions for the normandy map.

Overlord - 109 Ace
https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.c...se_id=12324825
Overlord - Mustang Ace
https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.c...se_id=12324825
Overlord - Spitfire Ace
https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.c...se_id=12324825
Overlord - Focke-Wulf Ace
https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.c...se_id=12324825

You have different missions and also the feature to start right in the air on the first waypoint.

And also the fantastic Through the Inferno dynamic mission.

You have a sample mission from the operation charnwood campaign.

And also from the operation epsom campaign.

Sadly there are no campaigns for the 109 and Focke-Wulf.

Cool, I'll have to give these a try. Would love to get to know the Focke-Wulf!

+1 for the Charnwood/ Epsom campaigns. One of the most immersive sim experiences I've had, well worth every penny!

DCS campaigns are way too hard for casual simmers. I have bought three of them so far, and I haven’t completed a single mission. So money wasted for me.

That's just not true for the above mentioned ones. In those campaigns there are no objectives to complete. Mostly you just fly rather freely, and if you survive, you can progress to the next mission. They don't have objectives such as "destroy x number of planes/ tanks/ whatever".

Yes, IF you survive. It only needs one 109, and it’ll shoot me down every time..

Downloaded 2 free Epsom missions. I was right. I had no idea what was going on. I died every single time.

The purchase of Normandy has had many asking similar questions to be honest. The thread has answered the OPs main question of course concerning campaigns.

However, the OP also speaks to the fact that Normandy as a map still requires a lot of development. ED are already answering this with updates and we're all looking forward to this continuing.

Also as noted, improvements to the WW2 airframe modules have a role to play in extracting enjoyment on the map itself.

SP campaigns are generally good though it must be said that as the modules and map improvements get implemented, the experience of these campaigns may change also.

All in all, from a MP perspective, Normandy has not been a common server choice map but like said already, hopefully this trend will change with ED's current WW2 focus which is producing results already.

S!

...But fixing the cartoonish (too bright) colors, trees, ground etc, in Normandy Map cant be "rocketsience"... I hope that is priority no.1 for the guys at ED. And that soon, very soon it will be solved.
