The Battle of Britain, 1940
RAF: The Battle of Britain 1940 is three games in one, on history's greatest air campaign:
RAF:LION updates the classic original solitaire game -- you control the RAF against the German raiders. All systems have been updated to reflect recent scholarship, notably the fatigue and patrol systems. Advanced rules cover late interception, VHF-equipped squadrons and evasion tactics, Ace squadrons, Forward Airfield Targets, Delayed RAF Response and more!
RAF:EAGLE reverses the solo game -- you control the Luftwaffe planning and executing raids against the RAF. Also, you flip the map over for a German perspective on the campaign. Advanced rules include, High Command requirements, deep targets, Jabos and special rules for Ju-87 Stukas.RAF: 2-PLAYER allows for head-to-head play. A separate German planning display is added to allow the German player to plan his raids in secret.
