Table Air Combat: Heinkel III Bomb Run
I played the Bomber Training scenario from the Heinkel III set this evening, to run through the rules for flak which I haven't used for ages. The Luftwaffe managed to plaster the target with seven 4+ hits, which was pretty impressive and a decisive victory, especially as they lost only one bomber to the fairly ineffective flak. The AAA hit several times but the tough airframe of the bombers, requiring a 6 on a D6, meant that there was little actual damage inflicted by the flak bursts. It was a very quick game but got the sprogs hooked again, so we followed on with the Scramble scenario, substituting Heinkel III's for the Ju-87's in the set up (an after action report will follow).
