Bag the Blenheims RAF Aircraft Sheets
I've come down with a stinking head cold but I'm still bashing away at the paperwork for the Lard Day Bag the Hun scenarios, so that they are done sooner rather than later and I can run a few play test games before the event. Here are the aircraft record sheets for both the Hurricane IIb's of 'A' Flight No185 Squadron and the Blenheim IV's of No18 Squadron, which I've modified for bombers and re-organised, three to a laminated A4 sheet. In the scenario there will be six Blenheims operating on a single bomber formation MOVE card but with two AIR GUNNER cards in the pack.
The Blenheims represent a ferry flight of replacement aircraft arriving from an Operational Maintenance Unit in Gibraltar. They have been stripped of all unnecessary weight including most of the machine guns, then packed full of essential spares and supplies for the besieged fortress of Malta. I have reduced the ALT, MAN and SPD by one to reflect their overloaded state and have also given them only the dorsal turret gunner as defensive armament, although this doesn't alter the FIRE FACTOR of 1 in all four arcs.
If this makes it too easy for the Italians, I will just bump the numbers back up again, but I thought it would be fun to see how it changed the game dynamics, especially given the feeble armament of the Mc202's. In previous games, this has been a real pain in the backside for the Italians, who spray bullets all over the place and often hit things but fail to do any significant damage. I'm hoping that by handicapping the bombers it will even the chances of bringing one or more of them down successfully?
