GI John's..... 'New Air Plan' - final rules uploaded Wed, 11 December 2019 15:53
OK, so we have 2 sets of Air rules; The Air Pack & New Flight Plan.

The main issue for me is I don't completely like either set of rules, or more positively put, I like parts of both sets of rules.

Ok, so more on why I'm doing this:
What I don't like about New Flight Plan is the need for the Combat deck. I don't like any of the combat decks for that matter. I think the introduction of any of the combat decks compromises the simplicity/integrity of the original game. I think its just an example of adding an unnecessary element to sell product. I do like the dogfighting and strategic bombing however and the Air Superiority chart. What I like about the Air Pack was the non-interaction of the Air and Ground units. It keeps it simple. I don't like the need for Air Sortie cards. Chits work better.

I just won't play the Air Pack or New Flight Plan rules as they are. I think both got close to the mark but are just a bit off. Also, New Air Plan rules are better for Solitaire play.

Lastly, another issue for me is why can't I use the planes I already own from the Air Pack? Well, with my New Air Plan, YOU CAN.

I will be posting a complete set of rules but the basic tenants are as follows:

1- There is no interaction between ground and air units. A ground unit cannot engage an air unit in combat. Only interdiction as described in New Flight Plan applies to movement restrictions. So, no Air Combat deck. Instead each side will get 2 chits (ready to take off markers) at the start of the game. If one side has Air Superiority, they get 3.

2- You use a chit and a section card to deploy a plane. The Keep 'em flying rule is in effect.

3- You have 1 plane for each of the 5 major powers, USA, Japan, Germany, Great Britain & Soviet Union. The Storch and a couple US planes are not used/needed. All Fighters have the same powers. Think of your fighter as representing a squadron of fighters and bombers, etc. Strafing runs and dogfights will be allowed but with slightly different rules:

Strafing runs - roll 1 die for each target. A matching symbol, star or grenade is a hit.

Dogfights - roll 1 die. a Grenade shoots down the other plane & scores a medal. A flag forces the other plane to withdraw. All other results are ignored.

Strategic Air Bombing is kept. This is where you can target a permanent medal objective with your squadron. Roll 2 dice - 1 grenade is a hit and wins the medal. However, you can target a Temporary Medal Objective and win that medal until the start of your opponents turn. This opens it up to last medal wins the game with a successful strategic bombing run on temporary medal objectives.

A Recon 1 card allows you to draw 2 cards and keep one but also to replace a used chit (ready to take off marker). You can have no more than 3 at any point in the battle.

The Air Power Card is removed from the deck before beginning play when New Air Plan rules are in effect.

Basically, this is a blend of the both sets of rules without the need to buy, yet another, expansion.

More to follow....
