The Gear Krieg Game of Aircraft Combat

Aviation technology has come a long way since the Wright brothers first flew. The core principles of flight remain the same, but the methods and execution has changed dramatically. No longer is aerial warfare a duel between gentleman-pilots, swooping low over the battlefield in wood and cloth biplanes. It is a violent dance in the sky, pushing man and machine to the edge of their endurance -- and often beyond. In the air, Superscience is the alpha and omega.

Luft Krieg is a tabletop air combat wargame set in an alternate world where the wonders of pulp science-fiction magazines are realities of science. Players take the part of commanders guiding their daring aces through aerial battles inspired by the Second World War. This book includes basic rules and counters to take control of the air forces of any one of five powerful nations to help decide the fate of the Free World.

Luft Krieg includes:

  • An alternate history of aviation;
  • Modular, easy to learn rules that provide realistic results;
  • Rules that support all the main aircraft model scales, from 1/72 to 1/300;
  • Advanced rules for Aces, Morale, Rocket Packs and many more;
  • Basic tables of organization for the air forces of Germany, the British Commonwealth, the United States, Soviet Russia and Imperial Japan;
  • Game statistics for over 60 aircraft and combat vehicles;
  • Color counter sheet for game markers.

A few six-sided dice, pen, paper and miniatures are required to play the game. Possession of the Gear Krieg wargame is useful but not required.

We produce a line of superscience aircraft miniatures for the game; buy them at your local store or in the Gear Krieg Online Store. Scotia Models also now distributes the Collectair micro-armor plane miniatures, which can be used for the "regular" WWII aircraft types.

Scanned image
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
