Missile Age is an expansion product for Above the Clouds! (which is required for use).  Missile Age takes air combat beyond the age of gunfighters which fought in the skies over Korea, incorporating early missile armed air combat.

 In addition to expanding the rules to cover missile combat between aircraft (including RADAR, rudimentary ECM, etc.), Missile Age also adds ground-to-air combat including mass FlaK battery barrages, individual anti-aircraft artillery (AAA) sites, Surface to Air Missiles (SAMs), and Man-Portable Air Defense missiles (ManPADs). 

While we were at it, we decided to incorporate some opotional rules for Above the Clouds, some based uopn suggestions from veteran players.  These include an alternate maneuver order, limitations for tailing friendly aircraft, and non-simultaneous gun combat resolution.

Missile Age includes the first scenario package, Route Pack 6, which covers the air combat which occured in South-East Asia from the mid 1960s and 1970s.  Route Pack 6 contains aircraft performance displays (APDs) for 28 aircraft, 4 models of Air-to-Air Missile (including 20 versions of those missiles), and one SAM system, the SA-2 (in 4 versions).

The APDs included are:

Format

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.
