Table Air Combat: CR.42 Falco

Print-and-Play PDF


Table Air Combat is a fast, simple air combat game that can be played on any flat surface.  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. 

Watch how to play here 

CR.42 FalcoA player uses a flight of four aircraft represented by two counters.  Aircraft counters move by means of curved “performance rulers” that represent the aircraft’s historical cornering ability and maximum speed.

Each performance ruler is unique to each aircraft, and contains all the speed, cornering, and weapon information needed.

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.

The CR.42 Falco was one of the last biplanes used in combat. Extremely agile, Falchi were Although the Regia Aeronautica replaced the Falco with monoplanes like the MC.200, these biplanes continued to serve throughout the war.

The Falco was also exported to nations such as Belgium, Sweden, and Hungary.


This set is a self-contained rulebook that includes miniatures for the CR.42 and includes three scenarios that reference other aircraft:

Gladiators:  A two-versus-two battle between Italian CR.42 biplanes and RAF Gladiators.  The CR.42 is used to subsitute for the Gladiator, making this a self-contained mentioned.

Malta:  CR.42 Falchi engage RAF Hurricane fighters

Fall Gelb:  Belgium defends against the invading Luftwaffe in this set of three scenarios.  Belgian CR.42 fighters fight a desperate battle against Bf-109E fighters and Ju-88C bombers, with He-111 bombers standing in for Ju-52 transports

This ruleset contains only the CR.42 Falco.  Other aircraft references must be purchased separately.

trying to find your web address. I did take the cheap skate way out and got the Spitfire II. I want to see how much work is involved in printing, assembly, etc. But I would like to see these aircraft, please: B-24 (the workhorse of the USAAF, hands down period). B-29, lots more Italian aircraft like the SM79, etc. Ships added for blowing up and torpedoeing!!!, actual RAF Gladiators, Russian Mig-15, F-86, Navy Panthers (F9-F's?), More aircraft for Korean War. I like the video and this looks right up my alley for simple and I need simple these days. Thank you.

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.
