    150 KB This is not Planes and Mercs Anonymous 06/25/10(Fri)10:10 No.10733753  
    But it kind of is, how would you run Planes and mercs for WW2?

    I'm thinking of running a game where the players operate in and around WW2, as a band of mercenaries.

    The Air War rules don't cover the period I want to play in. Any help?

    I think the air war rules could easily be tweaked to allow for ww2 combat.

    China is the perfect location for this.

    You've got a lot of potential. Chinese warlords who are barely cooperating to fight the chinese. Nationalist and Communist Chinese factions.

    Early in the war Japan crushed all opposition in China as far as air-power is concerned. So when you first start out they've not got much in the way of strength there. Outdated planes and inexperience pilots and flight crews.

    However as the mercs/PCs cause more and more damage to Japanese holdings in China, increasingly better aircraft and more experienced pilots get diverted to the theater to deal with this newfound annoyance.

    And of course, they eventually throw a squadron of aces at the Mercs/PCs. Perhaps lead by an Ace Luftwafffe "Instructor" on loan from the Germans.

    OP again shouldn't take Hueys. Single engine unarmored turretless flying target piece of shit. Fun to fly but easy to shoot down.

    Pre WW2 Asia was all infantry, French and Brits, trade routes and racism. A squad of mercenary pilots with even the simplest planes would be of great tactical advantage, although more in reconnaissance than in battle.
    Totally viable as a dieselpunkish alternate history rpg. With a GM who knows his history this would be awesome.

    You should try Area 88, quite a few skyhawks in that.

    Unfortunately with the exception of a couple named pilots (who eventually get newer aircraft), they're amongst the redshirts.

    Eh...I wouldn't say that. I just really like em a lot and I feel the need to support them.

    And yeah i've seen a good chunk of 88 and I find the use of A4s as redshirts...not really far above Mig21s and 17s...horribly disturbing.

    Probably similar with this.

    Ugly as sin, but amazingly endearing.

    I love the Mig 21 as well, underated fighter.

    Is dat sum 22?
    Inb4 Mig-21
    >> Skyhawk !c6DO1M4BMw 06/25/10(Fri)16:32 No.10739046
    I'd agree if that was a Mig21. They're my favorite soviet built fighter and are right up there with skyhawks.
    >> Anonymous 06/25/10(Fri)16:33 No.10739054
    It is a -21.

    No it ain't. Look at the wings. Look at...well...everything really. Similar but totally not a 21.

    Well to be fair, the only major fight I see their asses get kicked their up against East German ace "Mercenaries" in MiG-27Ds.

    Of the 15 fighters A88 sent up against them only 5 came back.
