I tried out of play test of these rules today I came club. One thing we notice right away is that the whole concept of power is not defined in the rules or really explained anywhere. Can you define that term and how it's used in your rules?

Actually, the effects of Power is shown on a chart on the combat card. Normal power allows an aircraft to add one speed as listed in the list of "Speed Changes." For High or Low power aircraft, the effects are summarized on the section titled "Power Ratings." Low power aircraft may only add power when they plotted a "Straight" maneuver. High power aircraft may add +2 power unless they are at Maximum speed, in which case they are limited to adding +1 power. There may be situations which reduce an aircraft's power rating (most notably when operating at higher altitudes), so the (Lower) section is to describe what happens to "Low Power" aircraft in these situations.

Understood. That concept should be explained in the rules themselves, because two of us, experienced games with 35+ years experience each, could not figure out the concept of power just from the combat card.

So, "power" permits a plane to increase speed by "1" each turn. A "low power" aircraft can only increase speed by "1" if using a "straight" maneuver. A "high power" aircraft can increase speed by "1" or "2" unless at maximum speed.

Is this all correct?

My suggestion is that all of the combat chart entries should be explained in detail in the main rules, so the chart can become a QRF for the rules. Having rules that just appear on the combat chart and not explained in the main rules is confusing.

Yes, that is correct

I completely understand and agree, I will work into the rulebook file when I get a chance. I just wanted to get the explanation out there as soon as possible.

Shouldn't this really have the HE-111 for battle of Britain?

Actually, the He-111H was previously released under the "Fall Weiss" expansion, but yes I should have added it here too so there would be no-need to purchase both sets just to have the aircraft for the Battle of Britain and the Battle of France. I will be adding it shortly (along with the Ju-87B). Thank you for the feedback.

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.
