Table Air Combat is a fast, simple air combat game that can be played on any flat surface. Each ruleset is a self-contained game including cut-out miniatures of one aircraft and a set of rules. All you need are some six-sided dice and some coins to provide weight for the aircraft counters.
Each player has a flight of four fighters, represented by two counters. Aircraft counters move by means of curved “performance rulers” that represent the aircraft’s historical cornering ability and maximum speed.
TAC is designed for portability: the entire game can fit in a plastic bag. Even the largest battles can take place on a fast-food restaurant table.
This set is a self-contained rulebook that includes miniatures for the British fast bomber Mosquito.
In addition to the Mosquito, this set also includes:
ground targets for the Gestapo headquarters in Oslo, Schott Glass Factory, andZeiss Optical Factory
Bomb hit markers
Barrage balloon clusters
This set contains five scenarios.
Oslo: A treetop-level surgical strike against the Gestapo HQ in Norway, upon request of the Norwegian government-in-exile. Fw-190A fighters defend.
Operation Oyster: Brave heavy flak and defending Fw-190A fighters to bomb an electronic research plant in Nazi-occupied Holland.
Schott Glass: Heavy flak protects Jena in Germany, where Mosquitos need to hit two factories.
Pathfinder: Mosquitos use the cover of night to drop illumination flares on a target, paving the way for an imminent Lancaster strike. A Bf-110G night fighter hunt.
Photoreconnaissance: Armed with only cameras, a Mosquito element must fly over locations to photograph and then return to get the film developed. Bf-109F fighters defend, while a Spitfire V provides close escort.
