Scenario Special Cards - The 'Buster'


This is a mock up of one of the scenario specific special turn cards for the Bag the Hun Lard Day game. There will be a Luftwaffe equivalent to balance things out but this one is just for the RAF and can be slipped into the deck as and when the time is right. A 'Buster' was the code for a maximum speed interception, usually in desperate circumstances and often for a full squadron response. This time it's only for a single pair of Spitfires, which will be forced to break away in order to search for a downed Boston bomber crew, as occurred on the actual operation albeit with a full section of aircraft. It will enable me to balance things out if the Luftwaffe are having a particularly bad day, giving the RAF an unexpected headache to deal with and hopefully throwing a spanner into their best laid plans.
