I really like the look of this game but I prefer Lancasters to B-17s.

Are there any similar games but featuring Lancasters?

Or...

Are there any known plans for a Lancaster game in the Leader series in the pipeline?

the only Lancaster game I know of is Enemy Coast Ahead: the Dambuster Raid but they are not similar. It is good, though.

Why not use the Lanaster variant for B-17?

I do have some notes and ideas for a UK nighttime bombing version. There are some tweaks required to the bombing phase to reflect a more area bombing approach. I probably won't get to it in the near future though.

I think it was either in The General or The Boardgamer?

Heh. I like the typo. You must be a Game of Thrones fan.
