B-26s in the MTO?B-26: The Marauder Strikes!

Posted by Magnus Kimura 2017-04-26 05:08:06

Yes. Later today, or tomorrow at the latest, the target lists and gazetteers and maps for November 1942 to May 1943 (maybe also June 1943) are finished. You can fly missions!

Use the Core Game rules. There were smaller formations in the MTO but I have not finished those rules yet and ignore Sea Sweeps.

It is possible to test what's finished!

The Other BoxSuggestions & Ideas

Here's an idea. Try it!

If you want to have more details on your box and the other box in your group.

Not finished, but try it and see what you think and let me know if yo add anything. I'll use this on my next mission.

I did not know that the fighter counters all had an image of the Ar 96 and that there were many other counters with - well, there was chaos - 'nuff said. I had no idea that there was chaos, I noticed it today.

The correct counters have been uploaded today. The fighter counters have not been updated yet.

I'll go over everything and see what else is wrong...

CT-B has been updated and is available on Dropbox, as are the new fighter counters. You have them all compiled on Word and PDF.

Added on CT-4aTables & Charts

Posted by Magnus Kimura 2017-04-19 20:39:49

Long Burst vs One Fighter: Mark off Extra Ammo Boxes. +1 To Hit & +1 on CT-4c per Extra Ammo Box used.

There have been some changes and additions on CT-4c. NE has increased, KIA decreased. Greater chance of jammed machine guns if extra ammo is used. To Hit and damage increases with extra ammo boxes.

Another choice added to the game play with this in mind.

Enemy Fighters & Fire Power...Counters

Posted by Magnus Kimura 2017-04-18 12:55:52

...Sorry, guys, I have to increase the Fire Power on a couple of fighters to be able to be consistent with German, Italian and Japanese fighters and their armament. But the good news is that I am decreasing the fire power value on a couple of others - I think.

I am not going into detail on rate of fire, barrel length and all of that. When I work on fire power I look at the caliber and number of guns and if it is a machine gun or cannon. I am also looking at other characteristics on the fighters so that all will be different from each other.

Perhaps that the number of fighters included are too many, but to have only a few fighters representing so many would not be correct, and maybe be boring in the long run.
