Tactical Combat


Tactical Combat (TC) was developed in 1989 providing a system to game 1:1 scale historical-based scenarios.  TC provides realistic vehicle and weapon statistics and effects so gamers may also attempt to duplicate tactical doctrine in their wargames.  TC is a departure from dice heavy hit/save mechanics that can seem abstract.  This is the BASE GAME RULES used for every era, but includes Vehicle/Weapon Charts and Scenarios for 1939-45 Eastern Front- German, Soviet, Polish, and Finnish forces.

Some differentiating features include:  System useful from World War One to current, Ultra Modern time periods.  System is scaled for 10mm-18mm miniatures using centimeter measurments, or 20mm-28mm miniatures using inches measurments.  Additional supplements feature period specific Vehicle/Weapon charts, rules errata specific to the period, and scenarios.  TC uses simultaneous player phases where all gamers are engaged in every phase of the game together, rather than using an alternating player game phases where players have downtime waiting upon activations.  TC doesn't employ an overt abstract morale mechanic, but instead employs Medics, Leaders and Wound mechanics in combination to manufacture a morale result.  In combination with force composition, the morale system of TC is subtle and condusive to play.  TC is designed for combined arms and includes rules for aricraft, helicopters, amphibious craft, drones, Hidden Forces, off-board artillery, terrain damage, cavalry, and bicycles among others.  Tactical Combat is fast-paced and gamers can finish scenarios designed for 1-4 hours of play.

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.
