Aerodrome® 3.0 Korean War-era
Aerial Combat Ruleset in Final Stages of Preparation
Aerodrome® 3.0 Korean War-era Aerial Combat game ruleset will be available soon. The game plays much like Aerodrome®
2.0, but covers aerial combat from the end of WW2 up to the advent of earlier air-to-air missiles (around 1958), with specific
ruloes and features for early jet air combat. Rules and aircraft stats will allow players to game the Korean War, the early
Arab-Israeli and India-Pakistan conflicts, etc. And, of course, the game has been designed in a way that allows it to be played
using the same Aerodrome®-style Wooden Control Panels that are used for both Aerodrome® 1.1 and Aerodrome® 2.0. An
Aerodrome 3.0 website with more information is in progress.
2.0 World War 2 Aerial Combat Ruleset Available
The Aerodrome® 2.0 ruleset has been released and is now available. Although both the maneuvers and combat mechanics
are different than in Aerodrome®
1.1, it still remains easy to learn, easy to play and lots of fun. In addition to simply dogfighting, the rules allow for
air-naval combat, level-bombing, dive-bombing, torpedo bombing, antiaircraft fire, and much more. Rules and aircraft stats
allow players to game not only World War 2, but other pre-WW2 conflicts, such as the Spanish Civil War, the Russo-Finnish
War, the Sino-Chinese War (think Flying Tigers) and more.
If you like Aerodrome® 1.1, you will love Aerodrome® 2.0. A separate website with more information
is coming soon.
