Table Air Combat: U-2 Kukuruznik

Watermarked PDF


Table Air Combat is a fast, simple air combat game that can be played on any flat surface. Each ruleset is a self-contained game including cut-out miniatures of one aircraft and a set of rules. All you need are some six-sided dice and some coins to provide weight for the aircraft counters.  Everything else can be printed from this ruleset.

Yak-7Each player has a flight of four fighters, represented by two counters.  Aircraft counters move by means of curved “performance rulers” that represent the aircraft’s historical cornering ability and maximum speed.

TAC is designed for portability;  The entire game can fit in a plastic bag.  Even the largest battles can take place on a fast-food restaurant table.

Each aircraft is sold separately.  Only pay for the ones you want, and print out as many copies as you need to create your own epic WWII air battle.

The U-2 Kukuruznik (Corn-Cutter) was a small utility biplane used as a trainer, scout, ambulance, and transport.  It was also used as a light attack aircraft out of desperation.

This set is a self-contained rulebook that includes miniatures for the U-2 and contains five scenarios that reference other aircraft:

Recon: Search for German ground forces before an enemy scout finds friendly Soviet ground forces. A standard deck of cards is required for this randomly-generated scenario. A second U-2 serves for a Fi-156 Storch.

Cat and Mouse: Evade Bf-109E fighters to deliver supplies to partizans behind enemy lines.

Siege of Odessa: U-2 bombers defends the city with a daylight attack on a Romanian artillery battery.  The battery is defended by Bf-109F fighters and light anti-aircraft guns.

Nachtexen:  The all-female Night Bomber Regiment 588 dodges Bf-110 night-fighters to perform nuisance raids.

Kursk: A U-2 observation plane directs artillery on advancing forces.  Yak-7 escorts defend the U-2 from Luftwaffe Bf-109G fighters. A deck of cards creates random ground units.

This set contains only the U-2. Other aircraft referenced in the scenarios are sold separately. Two scenarios require a deck of playing cards to create ramdom ground units.

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.
