Any more info? This doenst really tell us that much. Or maybe it just doesnt tell much to me... Whats the concept of the game, how are you suposed to battele an opponent, are you gonna control just one aircraft or a squadron or a whole airforce, and tell us how to interpret all the data on the aircraft sheet.

Sorry about that!

The guy who was supposed to do it for me had trouble linking the entire thing...

Maybe I can coax him to do it later, but if you or anyone else E-Mails me at: Gaston1_01@hotmail.com , I can E-mail anyone the entire PDF thing (10 aircrafts), with 6 pages of rules, all for free, and it will be of a higher image quality because some resolution and color issues occur in the forum image (you can see it in the reds)...

Note the original "Air Force" game's rules are still required, but I can send you photocopies of them plus log sheets if you ask: The rest is just simple 1/2" counters and any kind of hex map... Or you can find the original "Air Force" game on E-bay, Avalon Hill's version or even Battleline's should have everything you need...

If you know how to post my whole variant here, be my guest...

The available aircrafts in my variant are: Me-163B, Spifire Mk XIV (+18 lbs), FW-190A-8 (+ A-8/R2 and also wood prop option), P-51B/C/D (67"/72"/80" MAP), P-47D Razorback (std or 72" MAP, Paddle-blade or Needle-blade, alternate gun convergence), Zero A6M5-A6M5a, P-38L (64" MAP), B-24J, B-29.

It is unlikely I will make more; except for a very few British, Russian and US aircrafts, and maybe some German variants, the available info is often too sparse to make really meaningfully accurate Data Cards... Also they are a LOT more work than they seem: The profile drawings are all my own work for instance...

Thanks for your interest.

Really interested!!!

I love board games, but I can't promise you to be active in the game, the only free time I've now is used to learn Dark Heresy rules...

PS: Do you know Vassal?

That is really neat. I'd buy it.

Gaston, that really takes me back! Some of my fellow geeks and I used to play Air Force back in college. Yes, I was a geek even back in the 80's. We used to play Air War too (with an even more complex set of rules, and focusing on jet combat), but Air Force was a better balance of complexity and fun. Thanks for the reminder.
