1 comment

New in this forum, and not fluent with english, i'm sorry...

 

But everything is in the title : never heard about this kit. where can i found it, please ?

 

 

The THUNDER IN THE EAST update kit is not available. It is still in playtesting. It probably won't be available until THE MIDDLE SEA is offered for pre-orders late next year (or early after that). In the meantime, we are playtesting it on Vassal and, at some point, will release that playtest kit publicly for feedback.

  • I just ran my very first simulation using the revised "Devastating Airfields Attacks" and was only able to destroy 9 of the 22 VVS aircraft. Only kept one Stuka 'saved" for CAS, and made sure I included the +1 DV for Major Air Bomber exclusive attacks. So what am I missing that the majority of the Soviet VVS is available for July I? Why did design team go from basically crippling the VVS, to having a competent VVS in July I '41? (Second simulation was worse at 8 VVS destroyed.) Granted, the die rolls were crappy for two sets .... but this could happen, and we know how some of us like to complain about the Vassal die roller. 3rd = 14 4th = 16 5th = 12 6th = 10 I won't post more simulations, but would like to understand the thought process so I can adjust tactics and strategy accordingly, since there will be a VVS present right from the start.
  • I see the restrictions on Hungary and Romania for the Axis side, but I can't see any restrictions for USSR. Can they attack and exert ZOCs across border, etc.? Thanks.
  • Looking at the Axis Display Mat ... there is an arrow that specifically goes from the "Repair" line and turns specifically into the JU-52 Training Box. Why? Reading [353.0] it seems like the only way into that box is from the Air Mat as a transfer. Or are you saying that if the JU-52 is in the Destroyed box, I can just "repair" it for 1 FP? Also, there is an asterisk the words "1 for Major*" I can't find where the note that applies to that on the mat is. So what does that mean? Thanks! Doc
