Shock G.

Postby FantomPencil » Sun Oct 05, 2014 12:01 pm

This has been bugging me for years.

Just what the hell does "Shock-G" mean in the Specials boxes on the Aircraft Maneuver track record?

Push, Smoke and Shock I get, but Shock-G..? You're either in Shock or you're not.

Is it just there to fill up the space..? Was this once a rule for failing High-G manoeuvres that didn't make it through to the completed game? Or have I missed something?

I suspect it is G-Shock, been so long since I've looked at it I am not sure though. My books are all somewhere under a mountain of gaming books at the moment and I am too lazy to dig them up.

Shock is used to check whether the pilot is in shock.
Shock-G is used to check whether the gunner is in shock.

If I recall properly, its not the aircraft that has shock, it's the crew and both members of the crew can have different shock status.
