I asked on the vassal threads for someone with some experience to make a module for this game.. That's was years ago and nothing has happened. Since then I have learned a little about VASSAL and made a module for Air Superiority. Then I started work on Air Strike before I hit a stumbling block. Been sitting unoccupied lately. Laid off... Looking at a shelf with some old games on it.  So I decided to start work on a Battle Hymn VASSAL module today. Should have it put together pretty well in a few days, maybe a week. Should only need the mission cards with the view sleeve and a squad record. Everything else should be in the module.
As I was working on this today I had an idea for a workaround of my stumbling block in Air Strike.  So I could be busy for awhile now.

I started playing Mission 1 using the VASSAL module last night and it worked really well. I think I would need a second monitor though to have the map and all important tables and cards visible at the same time.

Very good work! The minor thing I felt could be improved would be to make it easier to toggle different states showing small markers on the counter itself rather than having separate status markers.
