Re: BMP-1 Troop Organisation

Re: Air Combat Rules

Although it was a bit cumbersome and II was never a big Air war fan, I suggest someting along Mike Spics Air wargames book. It did still only play in effectively 2D but the other 2D, the length and height, This did much more to emphasise the impact of height and did seem more like flying than say th...

Re: The Charge of the Paras.

Grest to see a built up area that looks like one with very restricted views and ranges. All too often they are just 3 or 4 houses apaced too far apart, it will give the game a real tactical edge not just a die rolling exercise. Well done!
