Fire Over Malta was a scenario that ran in Aces High in November, 2005. The motivation was to have a scenario based on the WWII aerial battles around Malta in 1942, with the Royal Air Force there battling for its life to hold Malta against attacks from the Luftwaffe and Regia Aeronautica. The allies were striving to set up invasion of Sicily and to cut the lifeline of axis forces in North Africa. The axis was fighting hard to keep that from happening. Control of Malta was the key.
