Sorry I've been gone for a bit, but I still pop in here from time to time.


Thank for the clarification on this Patrick!

As far as i remember the rule for parasite fighter says: no rockethardpoint allowed ?!
This needs to be hardcoded.

No problem, thanks for the information and for your time and efforts on the sourcebook!

Now I need to find someone willing to play a dogfight with me so I can test out the Nightingale in combat. Moo ha ha ha! :twisted:

While I am making the aeronaut print layouts for bombers a came up with this questions:

1. Bombers shoot allways after fighters.
But is there a QD order if both sides have bombers on the field?

For me the most reasonable rule is:
1-All Fighter fire in QD order
2-All Bombers fire in QD order
3-All Zeps fire in QD order


2. If I target a specific location on a bomber or cargo how is the damage distributed?
Do I use the Ammo templates or count boxes?

3. On page 62 the random hit locations have no base target modifiers like fighters.
Is this correct?

maybe someone can anwer them ?
