SBG 3: Search System Expansion

Watermarked PDF


More fun. More intense. More deadly. That describes the Search System Expansion for SBG 3

You need the core rules to use this product!

New radar and sonar tables make for a new level of excitement! There is less certainty of detection at long range and greater certainty at close range. New ships now perform noticeably better that older ships in terms of spotting and being spotted.

Planes are now harder to spot than ships, and missiles are even tougher to spot than planes. An example of play under the new rules is part of this pacakge.

Surface to surface and air to surface ordnance has been classified by flight altitude and trajectory; ballistic and skimming. Complete tables for SSM's and ASM's are included.

Dipping sonar and sonobuoys are rated and included.

The ship forms for ALL SUBMARINES from the core rules and expansions have been redone and are included. All surface vessels have been tabularized for the new sonar modifiers. Redoing the surface vessel forms was not necessary.

As a bonus, two new SSBN's along with USMC AV-8B Harrier-II aircraft forms are included.

We listened to you, the customer, when we did the research and the rework of the modifiers. As always, Tornado Games strives to be up to date and the best rules around. Enjoy!

Need modern ships to play? Try Paper Forge! The ships,planes and missiles look great and you can't beat the price. They are the perfect size for SBG.

Excellent expansion to the system, adding that bit of extra realism without adding to the complexity. Can't wait to get this into the game and onto the table. [...]

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.
