I hope I'm playing this rule correctly. If the GAF resistance is light and I remove 2 EA/wave, if there are only one or two EA in the wave does that mean no EA attack, the way I've treated it the last two missions, assuming they remain in the distance - visible but not engaged. Or, If the roll on B-2 results in one or more waves, does a minimum of one EA attack regardless of the number of EA to be removed?

Light resistance means 2 enemy aircraft per wave do not attack. If the waves have only 1 or 2 enemy aircraft then 0 attack and you move on. Same for multiple waves - 2 enemy aircraft per wave are removed or do not attack - if there are leftover aircraft (waves of 3+ enemy fighters) then those are the only planes you'll face.

Sometimes this is the only way my B-17s make it back to England in one piece...

But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you… And I will beat you.

Hi Richard,

John is spot on. We are in February right now with inclement weather and the Luftwaffe would have problems finding the formations. Those that did find the formations were spread thin and may be attacking another Bomber Group. So yes you might see them forming up but they are attacking the 303rd BG and not the 281st BG.

With the "Good" or "Fair" escort coverage you may not see fighters at all even on a Swarm of five enemy fighters. This will be historical for our current missions. But don't worry that will be changing pretty soon. We will be having a "Big Week" coming up in a few missions.

Jim cool

Thanks guys. I just wanted to be sure I wasn't giving myself an unfair advantage.

Big Week is going to hurt us I think. A lot. Can't wait for the missions to come up!
