Variables of War: Night Fight

Watermarked PDF


Variables of War is a series of supplemental rule books for Battlefield Evolution: Modern Combat.  Variables of War expands the gaming table beyond the "Green Fields of Kent" or the "Sands of the Sahara."  These books provide advanced rules for a variety of climates and conditions that will present unique challenges that can be applied to any game.  Each book will also include a set of scenarios that can be played individually or linked together.  These supplements are designed to expand on the core rules yet maintain the simplicity of the system.  This allows you to "plug and play" any rules you find helpful for a given scenario, confident that they will be compatible with all units in the core Modern Combat rulebook.  With Variables of War, you can truly fight your opponents any time, any where!


The art of night combat is a skill achieved through dedicated training and the use of advanced technology. Modern armies find themselves outmatching those who have neither the ability nor the resources to equip their forces to fight in the dark.

The first installment of the Variables of War Series, Night Fight provides you with the rules needed to simulate combat under cover of darkness in your Battlefield Evolution games. Players will experience a whole new array of challenges, the technology to overcome them, and a variety of tactics to spring on your opponent. Will you move cautiously under moonlight, trusting your ears to alert you of enemy movements, or will you incorporate the latest night vision and thermal technology in rooting them out? This book will give you all the tools you need to keep your opponent up at night!

Variables of War: Night Fight includes the following:

  • A brief overview of the history of night combat.
  • Basic rules incorporating the effects of night your troops and simple equipment to use in the dark.
  • Advanced rules covering modern equipment and tactics, including aircraft.
  • Scenarios to try out using the rules found in the book.
  • An Operational level mini-campaign.

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.
