air combat and near misses

Wacht am Rhein (Watch on the Rhein) was the German code name for this counter offensive. I don't want to hear anybody complaining about the weather this winter unless you were in the Ardennes during the winter of 1944! I simply love playing this game. Check out the new combat system when you can.

air combat and near misses

Post by kerem » Tue Mar 27, 2007 6:07 am

According to the OM, dog fight hits can be assigned to empty slots
(3 air units take up 4 spaces on the air combat strip, so the last box is just an empty space that can still "take hits")
The Official FAQ says, the above rule does not apply to AA fire (the ground portion of air battle). In other words: the remaining empty space at the bottom of the right column just doesn't enter the equation.

So, some fighter pilots need prescription glasses where the ground units all have 20/20 vision.

Is this the correct way to play the game?
(if so, air raids are best conducted with odd number of planes. Don't you think?)

Empty spaces on the Aircraft Strip are never counted, whether in dogfighting or AA fire.
