During the Second World War, a special project is begun by the US Army Air Corps to integrate African American pilots into the Fighter Pilot Program. Known as the "Tuskegee Airman" for the name of the airbase at which they were trained, these men were forced to constantly endure harassement, prejudice, and much behind the scenes politics until at last they were able to prove themselves in combat.

When the 99th gets Ramitelli, Hannibal has 2 swastikas and Train has 1 kill. They each get a kill when they discover a straggling bomber. It is reported that HQ confirmed the kills. The next time they are in the air and find a destroyer, each plane still has the same number of swastikas. They should each have added one more to their planes since HQ confirmed the kills earlier.
