Hi. I recently purchased a second-hand copy missing the rulebook. It otherwise seems pristine and unpunched. The Chart book says "1993 Deluxe Edition". It was printed under the TFG rather than the ADB imprint.

I see that the publisher sells parts on their website. What, besides the rulebook, can I buy to bring my copy up to speed with the current edition?

Aside from the latest rulebook, you may need updated counters for the new version of (Carrier/ Non-Carrier) groups (uses the 'new' Group Escort Damage System). Apart from that, the map and all other materials are the same.

Get a copy of the 2010 rules to start with, and maybe a copy of fighter ops. Should be enough to get you started.

Is that purely because of the quality content, or because Fighter Ops comes with components that I should have?

F&E used 'fixed groups' for carriers for a long time, with Fighter Operations introducing 'do your own' for carriers. The latest version of the rules moved that to the base game (because there were more counters). Fighter Ops will still get you plenty of the separate carrier and escort counters you will need.

I recommend getting the current rules. I'd also look at getting a separate current counter sheet or two; it will get you some carriers and escorts, and spares of everything else as well, which is usually useful. And then Fighter Ops will get you more of those, and includes the scenario Four Powers War, which has a lot less special ships, and is popular as a 'simpler' full-length scenario.
