do note that the card backs of the cards in operation overlord are slightly different from the other command cards in memoir. They have the word overlord printed on them.
So if you play with those cards, it seems to be clear for you to use all 4 air sortie cards included in the set.

When you don't own that expansion, you play overlord with 2 basic games. Those don't include air sortie cards, so your air sortie cards would come from the air pack.
If you own only one airmpack, you only own 2 air sortie cards. If you have multiple, you have also more than 2 air sortie cards.
I think the dual wording is because DoW does not know how many air packs you own. The wrote it so that it is correct when you own only 1 AP, and therefor 2 airsortie cards, but also when you own two, and would have 4 air sortie cards.
The dual wording implies you use all 4 air sortie cards in that case.
Now for the question of using 6 when using 3 AP: I would say this: if you use 3 AP to allow the possibility for each field commander to have a plane out, you'd actually want that to happen. I'd use 6 cards in that case so that it can actually occur that multiple planes are out there. That said, I think DoW will want to leave it to your group to decide how many to use. If you like to play with air planes, use 6, and if you don't use 4. If you don't own 4, use 2.

That's my take on it.


Sounds very logical! And you might be right that DoW and Richard were intentional about offering slightly different answers because there are so many different situations. Smile
