Legend of Y-29 (part of Operation Bodenplatte) near Asch Belgian, New Year’s Day 1945.

U.S. forces have two P-47D elements with no energy (they just used all they had bouncing the Fw-190’s from the rear) and 4 elements of P-51’s on the airstrip not in flight yet (so no energy).
The Germans have two elements of Fw-190D’s with no energy (as they are starting their attack on the air strip where the P-51’s are), and 4 elements of Bf-109G’s with no energy (starting their attack as well).

The Fw-190’s start 8” in front of the P-51’s leading elements as the first two are taking off. The P-51’s move only at stall speed the first turn in flight. Two more can take off on turn two, use the ship Akagi as the airstrip but it can’t move.

The P-47D’s start 5” behind the Fw-190’s and the Bf-109D’s start 7” north of the Fw-190’s aiming toward the middle of the airstrip.

The airstrip has 4 hit circles with 5’s to hit and are considered soft targets so you don’t have to hit all at once. Any German plane over the airstrip gets 1 dice AA at +1, and any U.S. plane within 1” of any German plane over the airstrip will get the same (friendly fire) 1 dice at +1. One flak circle starting on turn 3.

None of the planes can do any maneuvers (Immelmann, Wing Overs, Power dives, or Zoom climes) as this battle took place very close to the ground(you can gain energy but only use 1 a turn and only to increase that planes speed).

Both sides get 1 point for each plane shot down and the Germans get 2 points for each hit on the airstrip and any of the attackers that get 24” away of the airstrip back the way they came after turn 5 get 1 point each, the U.S. player gets 2 points from each undamaged circles on the airstrip. The side with most points wins.

    You mention North for the placement of one set of elements without referencing the orientation of the entire scenario. Can you put that placement in context, say 9 o'clock of the 190s or the like?
