AtC - Resolution 181

Watermarked PDF

Resolution 181 is an expansion for the "Above the Clouds!"  air-combat miniature wargame rules.  It covers the Arab-Israeli conflict from 1948-1983.

            Resolution 181 is intended to provide enough background information for Above the Clouds! aficionados to generate interesting missions set in the various clashes of the Arab-Israeli conflict.  This conflict has varied over time including all-out warfare involving the very survival of the Israeli state, lower-level conflicts involving mere one-off raids, and even sustained air combat attrition campaigns.

            The early conflicts (the 1948 and 1956 wars) can be played using Above the Clouds! alone, but the remaining conflicts represented in Resolution 181 will require players to have the Missile Age expansion.   

            Resolution 181 consists of three major parts, a timeline to familiarize gamers with the background of the conflict, a section breaking down the major conflicts and the forces which were available to the participants, and the game components required for using your miniatures to fight in these conflicts.

Game components include 53 APDs (12 of which were previously published in other expansions) and 26 APD variants, some of which are:

     F-84F Thunderstreak (“Super Hog”)

     F-15 Eagle

     F-16 Falcon

     Hawker Hunter

     DeHavilland Vampire, FB.5

     DeHavilland Venom / Sea Venom

     Mystere IVa

     Mirage III / Mirage V

     Mirage F.1

     MiG-23 “Flogger”

     MiG-25 “Foxbat”

     Su-7 “Fitter”

     Su-17/20/22 “Fitter”

     Tu-16 “Badger"

     S-199 Mezek (“Mule”),

     Kfir (“Cub”)


Air-to-air missile systems include Shafrir, Python, R.530, AA-2, AA-7, AIM-7 and AIM-9 (a total of 18 models/versions).

Air Defense systemm include SA-2, SA-3, SA-6, Roland and HAWK SAM systems; as well as ZSU-23/4 and ZSU-57/2 anti-aircraft guns.

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.
