Glück muss man haben
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.
As in rolled a "1" against an FW190 with the starboard cheek gun. Now is that a No Effect on the FW190, or do I just consider it a "1" as far as damage is concerned. First time this has happened to me.
thanks in advance
The result would be FCA (Fighter Damaged but Continues attack at -1). As the previous "To Hit" Die Roll established that you DID a relevant Hit to the enemy fighter, now this roll determines what the effects that this damage has on the enemy fighter. As we don't log system damage to the enemy's fighter this type of damage is more of an abstract damage. I.E. you caused a fuel leak or scared the pilot as you just hit the canopy and he is calling it a day. or in the case of a FCA you broke the canopy and he is having issues seeing now.
I would rule it as No Effect. It's perfectly reasonable that you not damage the enemy on every attempt.
This is a modifier to the chart. As there is NO result of "No Effect" on this chart then this is Not a reasonable outcome. All this modifier , and others, do is shift the result rolls. i.e. a -1 modifier makes a FCA happen on a 1-3, a FBOA is now on a 4-5 and a "Fighter Destroyed" is only on a 6. As easy as that.
Hope this helps,
