We've talked about Advanced A&A... Now I'd like to hear your comments on what YOU envision a DELUXE A&A GAME to be. What would it look like.

Targetted Attacks

Post by Home Guard » Wed Mar 07, 2007 9:08 am

Hi all

Not sure if this has already been addressed but what about Targetted Attacks.

I think the Sub and Dive Bomber (new tech piece) should have TA's.
By this I mean on the first round of combat only, they could choose a target. Destroyers would negate this ability in subs but it would give them a unique bonus that would reflect real life.

I suspect that this would make them way to powerful.

NO NO , the Bulge system of assigning hits are far better.

You rarely see more than 12 combat units in a battle, so use D12, and trannies go as trucks, namely unlimited.

This could work, and be even more exciting because now you cant figure out what you lose in a strafe-attack. No more trannies as fodder.

I rest my case

I prefer a less powerful version whereby:

An AA gun hit can be taken by ANY aircraft (defender's choice)

A dive-bomber hit can be taken by any GROUND unit (attacker's choice)

A Torpedo-bomber hit can be taken by ANY ship (defender's choice)

I like the system as it stands. I allow targeted attacks for various national advantages.

For example, one NA for the Germans I have is the Henschel Hs 293 (an air-launched anti-ship missile) - Germans can use their bomber for this. I did this to give Germany more options when it comes to fighting a naval war with Britain.
Ever had the IJN have 4 BBs, 4 fully loaded CVs, 2 DDs, 5 TRNs, and 1 Sub -VS- 3 US BBs, 3 fully loaded CVs, 3 TRNs, 11 DDs and 1 Sub?
