nice no:)

I take it then you are ruling that any flight in base contact with the ship is considered to be attacking it ?

The rules dont actually say that and if allowed it would help with the fact that aircraft (bombers and TBs ) are under powered vs ships.

Yes I agree they should be hovering around their own carrier as a CAP How about carrier born fighters having a limit as to how far they can move from their carrier - say 15in ? to represent them doing their job as opposed to tear arsing across the table to marmalize someones (Mine!) poor oold swordf...

Umm Me 109's move 31 inches and swordfish move 13inches which means even though you launch you bombers at the start of the move phase AND they move after the fighters they still have no chance. The Me109s simply move out of AA range and sit there waiting for the Slow bombers to launch. Once the Swor...

are you allowed to say place 6 dive bombers in contact with the ship then see how many are left after the AA fire to attack with.

So for example 6 stukas are in base contact with KGV which destroys 2 from AA fire leaving 4 of which 3 may actually attack ?

Spotter planes engaing each other ?

Is this allowed to basicly tie them up and if so what happens ?

Do they dogfight each other and both die ?

AA fire and crews twiddling their thumbs ?

As the rules are now AA fire goes first at the start of the attack phase which is fine and dandy for shooting down enemy bombers but not for enemy fighters who are flying above your carrier mauling/dogfighting your bombers as they launch :( We played a game tonight in which German aircraft killed th...

kamakazi Rules?

Dont think this has been asked

Just wondered why no rules for kamakazi's were put in, is it because they would overcomplicate things or that they just didnt do enough damage to warrant inclusion ?

Firing main guns and spotting question

As the play goes alternately is this sequence correct ?

Bad Weather

Player A (Bismark) trys to spot Hood at long range and fails

Player B (Hood) successfully spots Bismark and opens fire

Player A (Lutzow) automatically spots Hood and opens fire

Is that correct ?

I wish the British (me) werent so bloody honest when it came to sticking to treatys or we might have had a 55,000 ton KGV with BIG guns, immense protection that would have kicked a yamato's arse !

DM do you have any reasonable aircraft Mods ?

You seem to be well clued up so I thought you would be the man to ask! After a couple of games with aircraft trying to hit ships we have realised along with others that aircraft seem very underpowered against ships so have you any reasonable suggestions to "up" their effectiveness without imbalancin...

Are you saying its stats are wrong compared with other BBs or that its gaming PL is wrong ?

If its the former then it needs looking at if not whats the problem, it was built, it saw action and got sunk :)
