Hello
Bit of a noob question here.
How much superficial damage can you take before you fall out of the sky so to speak?
Thanks

Superficial damage is just that. Misc holes in your ship. No limit, although it will add up if you're using the Peckham Points chart to accumulate damage to your aircraft after you land....

But they are a fun addition to help build the story of the plane and crew. Just like the specific damage to the crew charts. Not base/core game but an excellent fan addition.

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.

Yes it is not, but it should be in my opinion. I once brought a B-17 back with around 700-800 points of (Peckham) damage that in the standard rules would have been ready to fly in the next mission. That might have been the next day. But by the Peckham charts was a Category-E, as well it should be. There comes a point when a Bomber is just too shot up to be economically viable for repair.

Here is the Peckham Point chart in the Queen of the Skies files.

Bruce Peckham recently updated the chart for both B-17s and B-24s for players of Target For Today

We few,we happy few,we band of brothers;For he today that sheds his blood with me Shall be my brother: be he ne’er so vile;And gentlemen in England now-abed Shall think themself accurs’d they were no here That fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day.
