I was involved in a mini-campaign (described on the
TMP air boards), where we (myself and a mate) had
control of some Flying Tigers in defence of Rangoon at
the start of the war in the Pacific.
We chose to use the historical tactics. Dive in and
get a shot at the bombers, zoom climb to set up
another dive, before continuing into a power dive away
(just in time to avoid the bomber escorts). We would
have lost in a dogfight with zeros!
This worked very well, and really made a real
difference when tied into a campaign format.
The rules (Check Your 6) were those of a friend, who
wanted me to help playtest them. They worked well, and
the tactics did just what they were supposed to do.
Though of course, this led to a frustrating game for
the Japanese. :-)
