Here's something I've posted over on the Larry Harris site; not sure where else to post but it relates to almost all A&A games:  wink

Movement for ground and sea units is easy to keep track of but when there's an enormous amount of air units at play, itís often difficult to remember which moved, landed, ran out of fuel, etc.

These Aircraft Range Markers may help some people out on such an occasion; very simple pdf to print on thick cardstock, cut out and use.

Wow those look nice.

Especially the ones with red.

I can't wait to use the 0 marker.  I seem to need that one all the time!

How exactly do you use these aircraft range markers?

Are they individual markers you put with your plane?

The zero mark would have to be a plane at sea with a friendly aircraft carrier to land on, correct?

they are placed under planes to remind you how many spaces it can move after combat

Thanks  smiley Yes, the 0 "fuel" marker comes in handy the odd time and makes for a good reminder to move the carrier into that zone. Larry Harris said he's now using these in his current game  grin

Oh, and thanks johnnymarr for providing the answers..

bombers with long range aircraft tech.
you would use it to show the bomber hasn't moved yet

actually you don't need a marker for aircraft that hasn't moved yet.

You do need an 8 marker for a bomber starting on an airbase with long range tech in the upcoming AAG40 game. In this case a bomber would have a range of 9 spaces.

I have to admit that at the beginning of the game it is the toughest thing to remember the fighters because of all the locations they start at, but as the game progresses and forces are consolidated it is easier to remember these things, at least IMO.

Thank you for lining up the markers on equal spacing on the sheet.

This allowed me to glue two sheets (110 lb cardstock) back to back (zeros back to zeros & eights back to eights) using spray adhesive, then cut apart.

Now the Aircraft Range Markers are thicker and numbered the same on each side.  No need to flip a marker over to see what number I need when it is in the pile/dish/container/or compartment.

Thanks again!  grin
