Did we figure out how many sets you need for overlord? I would assume only one ( since it is specified that you need more for d-day landings).

You'll only need one.

I'm deploying an air unit on left flank for instance, where I have to put the unit exactly?

When you attack an enemy artillery unit with a machine gun (plane), does the grenade count as a hit or not?

How many air cards does the CiC get in Overlord? 2? 6? something else?

For some of the questions asked here (for instance those about Overlord), the answers are in the rules.

You can find those here: https://ncdn0.daysofwonder.com/memoir44/en/img/mm_nfp_rules_ en.pdf

Re:Memoir ’44 New Flight Plan, the most aspiring expansion yet released Wed, 10 April 2019 22:09
Ok ok, I will make it extra easy for you, from those rules:

Overlord - Special Rule
Before playing with the Overlord Command deck, remove the Air Power and the Air Sortie cards from the deck. Apply the updated rules for Command cards.

In an Overlord scenario, the Commander in Chief will handle the
Air Combat cards. The CiC will decide when to deploy an air unit by giving one of their Field Generals an Air Combat card at the beginning of their turn, along with a Command card.

Once an air unit is brought onto the battlefield, the Field General commands the air unit. On later turns, the CiC can pass out an Air Combat card to the Field General that commands the air unit. The CiC will follow the rules for replenishing their Air Combat cards.
If the air unit leaves a Field General’s section, it may be ordered by the Field General of the new section on the next turn. Remember that you cannot order a unit twice per turn however.

The rest of the New Flight Plan Air Rules remain the same.

I don't see where the new air rules state the number of air cards for Overlord. For combat cards Overlord gets 4 not 2.

It is also not stated if there can be more than one plane on the map at one time in Overlord. Can there be one plane in each section or just one plane on the entire map?

I guess since both of these questions are not stated, Overlord is treated exactly like a standard map, other than what is stated in the new air rules regarding overlord.

Page 8 of the New Flight Plan rule book explains the special rules or changes for different map formats. Overlord is in there as well.

Enjoy!

By the way, chrboesen, in Overlord, each Field General was given 1 Combat Card in the original rules (3 total), but the Jungle & Desert expansion increased that to 2 cards per Field General (6 total).

Yep, any hex in the region. Your plane will start on any hex and then will end its movement on any open hex.

I see that overlord is mentioned in the new rules. I don't see any mention of the number of cards. I also don't see any mention of if more than one plane can be in the air at one time (in different sections commanded by different field commanders). I guess in the absence of any other information the rules are the same as standard boards, so 2 air cards for each player and only one plane on the map.

Thanks for the clarification that combat cards are now 6 with the through the jungle expansion.

Yep, just one plane per side, even in Overlord.

The number of cards are explained on page 3: 2 Combat Cards +1 for Air Superiority.

Like it says in the last line of the section that explains the Overlord Changes on Page 8: "The rest of the New Flight Plan Air Rules remain the same."

Re:Memoir ’44 New Flight Plan, the most aspiring expansion yet released Sat, 08 June 2019 05:23
Picked up two copies yesterday and reading the rules.

I have a question about the strategic bombing of objective hexes. This is not specified by the rules, but I assume you can only bomb a hex and get a medal if it an objective he. For your side. That is, the Allies can only bomb Aliied objectives, the axis can only bomb axis objectives, and both sides can bomb dual objectives.

It is also clear that if the opposing side player moves into the hex, the player that bombed the hex loses the medal.

This is where it gets tricky, as the next paragraph is confusing. First let’s assume that the hex was for the allies only—I think this is how it works. The allied player bombs it and gets a medal. The axis player reclaims the hex and the medal is returned. Now the allied player cannot bomb it again to get the medal; the must retake it with a ground unit. Is this right?

It gets more confusing if it is a medal for both players. Let’s use the example above again with the allies getting the medal by bombing. Now the axis get a medal when they retake the hex ( which they can only do with ground troops not Bombing) I assume that this medal can now not be claimed by either side through bombing and will only change sides with ground troops.

Is this all correct?

"Yes, you said it, the medal can only be bombed once and only by 1 side and I assume only the Allies in this case could bomb it as the axis can not win it only reclaim it from the Allies"

"A medal hex can only be bombed 1 time by 1 side bottom page 6, but as stated can be reclaimed by ground troops"

Is this all correct?

I think the general principle from my reading of the rules is that any temporary medal can only be garnered one time by bombing. This excludes any further gaining of the medal by bombing. So if there is a medal that both sides may gain, if one side bombs it to get it, the other side must gain it by ground forces. And if the same medal is lost by the opponent, then again it must be gained by ground forces.

Yes, I agree. I just wanted to make sure. That section was just hard to decipher, but this must be the meaning.

Just to be clear: that rulebook states that you can start on any hex, even an occupied one (it's the first hex you "move" to). You must end your movement on an empty hex.

Something I'm not entirely sure of after reading the rules for a second time.

An Armor that attacks an adjacent flying air unit from a town hex, battles with a -2 die penalty, right?

To be clear, it's the armor standing on the town hex.

Yes 1 set for overlord and overtrough. You only need several sets for D-day landings (not overtrough as I understand it though).

This is correct.
If in armor is in a town and stays in town and attacks ANY adjacent unit it still has a -2 Die penalty.

BASE RULES p.14
Quote:

When battling an enemy unit that is on a Town hex, infantry reduce the number of Battle dice rolled by 1, Armor reduce the number of Battle dice rolled by 2 and Artillery Battle dice are not reduced.
Armor on a Town hex will reduce the number of Battle dice it rolls by 2.


So probably a good idea to move your armor out of town to an open hex to attack the flying air unit and not take the town dice penalty.

We want to use NFP but we also want to keep the intent of the campaign.

Just a random opinion, but I don’t think you can have your cake and eat it too.
The Campaign Books were written with the intent of using NO air rules other than the scenario specific rules. I don’t think it possible now to interject the NFP and expect there not to be conflict in the rules, loss of historical context and imbalance in gameplay.
But as always, if that is what you would like to do, have at it. And have fun.

I completely agree, but I would really lika an answer from someone 'official.'
Using the NFP makes the game more gamey and less of a simulation. That's not a problem for me, I just want som advice how to use one quality product with another quality product.

I think that is about as official an answer that you will get. Giving a detailed answer as to what level of air power each side should have in each historical scenario would require extensive playtesting for balance purposes. As there would be no profit in this I can't see it being done, but good luck.

How about using the NFP rules, so 2 cards for Poland and 3 for Germany BUT only Germany can gain a new Air card with the Recon 1 card. So Poland will need TFH to be played to get a new Air card?

I think I have this correct.

ANY Air Combat Card can be used to bring a plane onto the board. This includes the "GROUND TO AIR AMBUSH","GROUND TO AIR ATTACK" and "DOGFIGHT AMBUSH".

I only ask because of the text at the bottom of these cards where the action on the card is conducted during the opposing player's turn. But cards without air unit type icons are mentioned when deploying aircraft.
