Rangoon '42 Scenario : 'The Sum Of All Hate'

A semi-hypothetical scenario of the Japanese attack on Rangoon early in 1942. In this case, a mixed Allied force is defending the city from air attack. The IJA is trying to gain control of the skies and bomb the defenses to enable a coordinated ground-naval assault. This was one of the first encounters between the AVG and IJA where the Japanese started to develop tactics to counter the stronger, faster US fighters. It was also one of the last desperate stands for the British-led forces before falling back to India.

In real life, the Allies were facing much older and slower Japanese planes. Since we do not have these available, A6M Zeros and Ju-88's (as Betty bombers) are being used, but in smaller numbers than actually took place relative to the Allied planes. The situation being depicted is that after an initial bloody nose was delivered by the AVG and RAF, the Japanese pulled in stronger air assets (using more modern aircraft) to wipe the skies over Rangoon clean so they could take the city.

Commentary: This is still a tough event for both sides. Fighters will meet co-altitude which is good for the IJA, but numbers are much closer which gives the IJA fewer options - the balance of close escort to sweeps is much keener.

Solomons II Scenario : 'Hate Is STILL My Copilot'

Battles in the Solomons : 1943

This event depicts the turn of the tide in the Battle of the Solomons. The first stage depicts the time period when the US is trying to hang onto their bases on Guadalcanal. The second stage depicts the swing in momentum as the US becomes better able to attack the Japanese forces.

This will be a 12-mission, 2-stage event with 6 missions per stage.

We are making a rather sharp departure from scenarios of the past with Solomons II. The format is now a "rolling scenario" type. That is, each side is given a number of sorties per mission (planes in flight), a pool of replacements planes, and a set of objectives. And that's about it. Each side will have to conduct simultaneous strikes and base defense (for as long as they have planes to do so, of course). The special rules later on will describe how the replacement rules will work.

What we're hoping for is a more wide-open flow of battle. Each side will have to decide how many planes they need to CAP their base, how many they need to sweep with, how many to scout, and how many to escort. They will need to decide if they want to go for a big 24-ship bombing raid, or maybe only a little 6-plane sneak attack. Guessing right on what the other side's base CAP will look like obviously makes a huge difference here.

Solomons Scenario : 'Hate Is My Copilot'

Battles in the Solomons : 1943

This event depicts the turn of the tide in the Battle of the Solomons. The US has secured it's bases on Guadalcanal and is starting preparations for attacking up "The Slot." They face feirce opposition from the IJA along the way and find themselves outnumbered, yet on the offensive.

This will be a 12-mission, 2-stage event.

Kiel Scenario : 'Strawberry Dweebs Forever'

Attack on Kiel : 4-5 January, 1944

This event depicts a strike into Germany just at the point where the USAAF was starting to establish itself. Odds in the air of fighters are even, so it comes down to pilot skill alone.

This is a 4-mission, 1-stage event.

Battle Of Germany II Scenario : 'A Clear And Present Hate'

This event depicts the most interesting points during the Battle of Germany. In Stage 1, the USAAF is still using P47's for escort duty over Germany - the Luftwaffe has a trickle of jets to use. In Stage 2, the USAAF converts all their P47's over to P51's and the Luftwaffe gets the opportunity to use Me262's in full squadron strength.

This is a 12-mission, 2-stage event. Stage 1 is missions 1 through 6; stage 2 is missions 7 through 12.
