The December 2006 issue of Frontline General News is now available online. This edition introduces readers to the basics of Operational Scale combat in the game and contains a detailed 1 on 1 dogfight example between one US P-51D Mustang fighter and one German FW 190A-3 fighter. The terms and steps are well-defined with plenty of pictures. Along with this month's newsletter, I am providing a one-page companion PDF preview of the Four full-resolution Unit Cards used in the example. This PDF will only be available on the website for a limited time (until December 31st). Readers wanting to try their own dogfight between these two planes may follow along with the Feature Article, print out the preview cards, and just add a few game dice!
