I just played my first game of T/AL after playing tons of Hornet Leader. I am not certain i understand the enemy attack phase. Am i mistaken or are there are no dice rolls at all (except ECM if equipped)? You just draw chits from a cup and thats it ?

My poor A-10 going against a measly command battalion drew 2 minor hits (Structure* / Engine*) OUCH !

You got it.

The evade ability is one of the most powerful pilot traits IMHO.

Oh yeah! Plan your movement! Fly low, choose the best route to avoid the ridges and [censured] the bastards in the next turn!

Remember the rule where you disregard hits if the attacked aircraft is listed across the top of the damage chit. Ex. AH-64A and AH-64D ignore any damage chit that have "AH-64" written across the top of it.
