Here's another post, this time of a different type of Lost and Found offering of Trivia

Before EAW there was Mosquito which never got up in the air. Between 92 and 93 I was a game designer at MicroProse Manchester and my brief was to design a game around the Mosquito Fighter bomber. It had career, the interesting missions, Anti-submarine (the 6Lb anti-tank variation with a gun feed designed by a cigarette manufacturer), the bouncing bomb mission (against the Tirpitz), night radar misions plus all the usual MicroProse Flight Sim stuff. With input from B17 designer Mike Brunton (based in the MicroProse Leeds office) as well, to keep me on the straight and narrow. We had two excellent programmers, graphic artists and the use of a musician. It was going well.
I laboured for 15 months on that game design (ending up with a 256 page design doc and it was about 1/2 complete) from when MicroProse Manchester (England) first opened its doors in June 1992 until August 12th 1993, when following the Spectrum Holobyte Takeover in the US, we got closed down. The Atari St game conversion of Civilization was also done in Manchester while I was there.
Six months later we heard they had looked at the stuff shipped out when they closed us down. "Hey this Mosquito game looks good, wheres the team working on it?" ..."We let them go"!

from link from:https://www.reddit.com/r/Games/search?q=european+air+warIt is that most likely IMHO some of the things in EAW came from other MicroProse games. Perhaps even ones that were never released?
Anyway, the point of the thread is exactly as it says.
Also since this game forum (and thus likely the entire game itself in absence of another venue) is winding down I'm interested to get out as much material as possible. As well to make as much useful propaganda as possible whenever / wherever.btw; you can find a list of microprose games tried on Wine / Linux here:https://tinyurl.com/microprosegamesonwine
