Cold War Air Supremacy

Inspired by the 1986 movie Top Gun and its companion FASA game, Top Gun: The Game of Modern Fighter Combat, Cold War Air Supremacy is set in the years 1980 to 1991 and geared primarily to the technology and equipment in use during the later years of the Cold War era, commonly referred to as the Second Cold War. Future expansions will add in older fighters and technology and also more current fighters and technology.

Key features:

  • Three levels of play for beginner/fast casual (Lieutenant JG), advanced (Veteran) and expert (Blue Max)*.

  • Blind movement using 50 different maneuver cards for added intrigue.

  • Aircraft, maneuver and pilot cards can be printed on standard business card stock for easy separation.

  • Campaigns and scenarios based on historical and hypothetical events. (Coming soon!)

  • 10 playable aircraft of the most common fighters/interceptors from this era.
    • 5 NATO aircraft:
      • F-14 Tomcat
      • F-15 Eagle
      • F-18 Hornet
      • F-16 Falcon
      • F-4 Phantom
    • 5 Warsaw Pact aircraft:
      • MiG-23 Flogger
      • MiG-25 Foxbat
      • MiG-29 Fulcrum
      • Su-15 Flagon
      • Su-27 Flanker
  • Printable 3'-0" wide x 4'-6" Combat Map with 1 1/2" hexes. Includes option to print only the hexes if you need to conserve ink.

Bonus: Cold War Air Supremacy: Aircraft Hanger - MiG-28 and F-20 Tigershark

As a bonus with the purchase Cold War Air Supremacy, you will receive two additional playable aircraft. The fictional MiG-28 and the proposed, but never produced, F-20 Tigershark. These aircraft will ONLY be availabe as bonus material and will never be offered for sale.

These two bonus aircraft are based on fictitious and actual aircraft that came about during the Cold War. As such, their perfomaces are slightly above average of the core aircraft found in Cold War Air Supremacy.

  • MiG-28

The MiG-28 is based on the ficticious MiG-28 of the Cold War era that was belived to be the logical follow up to the MiG-27 Flogger. It was quite popular during the late 80's and appeared in several, unrelated works of fiction as independently created aircrat with no similarity other than for the designation, though with differing NATO reporting names. The most famous MiG-28 was seen in the 1986 Tom Cruise movie “Top Gun”. In that movie, the MiG-28 was represented by a F-5 Tiger painted black with red stars on the vertical stabilizer and wings. F-5's at that time were being used as aggressor aircraft in the real TOPGUN school, now formally known as the United States Navy Fighter Weapons School.

The actual plane to follow the MiG-27 Flogger ended up being the MiG-29 Fulcrum. In Cold War Air Supremacy, the MiG-28 is represented by the F-5 Tiger, which is, in fact, used as the agressor fighter at the Navy Fighters Weapon School.

  • F-20 Tigershark

The F-20 Tigershark was an actual aircraft that was produced as a prototype during the 80's as an upgrade to the F-5 Tiger and was in competition with the newly designed F-16 Falcon. During the evaluation period, the F-20 Tigershark proved to be superior to the F-16 in both perfomance and cost, but due to political and financial interests in Washington and at the Pentagaon, the F-16 won out and the F-20 never saw production.

Planned future expansions/campaigns: (Campaigns will include aircraft specific to that event.)

Korean War

Vietnam War 1965-1969

Vietnam War 1970-1975

Russian occupation of Afghanistan

Falklands War

Ground Attack (Core rule set)

* Blue Max: The Pour le Mérite, known informally as the Blue Max. was the German Kingdom of Prussia's highest order of merit during WWI. One if its more famous recipients was Manfred von Richthofen, the Red Baron.

Original electronic
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.
