Wow, well I’ve always played that the aa gun fires for each ‘class’ of air. So you roll dice for ftrs, then for tacs, then for bmbs to see which aircraft were shot down……now were talking about land battles and not SBRs correct?
Yes, this is strictly land battles, not SBRs. All facilities have their own built in AA defenses and thus have their own rules as to how to employ them. The AA Guns that we place on the board are only involved in actual land battles between the military units.
Also JimmyHat, you were doing it correctly by rolling for each class of aircraft through Alpha+2. Up through Alpha+2, we just had 1 AA gun that got a shot at each attacking aircraft and you were supposed to roll by type of aircraft (roll for fighters, roll for tacs, roll for bombers). Now in Alpha+3, we have multiple AA Guns that are limited to 3 shots per gun, or total number of planes whichever is less (Example: 7 planes attack 3 AA guns, AA guns only get 7 shots, not 9). Also, now you simply roll for ALL aircraft attacking and any hits are designated by the attacker. So, unless you have a REALLY lucky roll, odds are you will not hit a strategic bomber unless that is the only aircraft the attacker is bringing to battle.
