Battle of Britain
by Richard Borg, a remastering and upgrading of the classic, much loved
old TSR classic. This upgraded version takes all the brilliant
mechanics and features of the original game and adds new features to
give an even more exciting and satisfying gaming experience, including
new streamlined dog fighting and fuel rules, ace fighter squadrons and
the ability to play shorter scenarios in 1-2 hours or the full campaign
game in 3-4 hours. Game is for 2-4 players.
Take command of RAF Fighter Command, marshalling your too few fighter
squadrons to protect your homeland’s cities, industrial resources,
airfields and vital radar chain against the waves of Luftwaffe bombers
intent on destroying them and the swarms of fighters intent on shooting
the RAF out of the sky. Can you thwart the Luftwaffe’s bombing missions,
tear the heart out of their bomber and fighter squadrons and survive
long enough to win the game?
Take command of Luftflotte 2 and 3 in Northern France and Luftlotte 5
in Norway and use your numerous bomber squadrons, protected by your
numerous fighter squadrons, to complete a number of specific bombing
missions to win the game. But don’t be fooled by your starting strength!
Your losses will not be replaced as the Spitfires and Hurricanes carve
holes in your ranks. Your medium bombers are not really suited to mass
strategic bombing and will struggle to complete their missions. Your
fighter squadrons, although mainly composed of the excellent
Messerschmidt 109, will struggle with fuel, not having the range and
endurance to protect your bombers properly.
In addition, the Plastic Soldier Company has added its plastic
miniature expertise to create some fantastic little 1/300th scale
plastic airplane models.
