One of the ideas I have been playing is if the RAF do not intercept the raid the Hunters instead of going to the inflight straight away, carry out a free strafing run on the sector airfield. No event card picked. Then proceed to bombing run, airfield could be hit twice.
This idea comes from the Burning Blue game.
We also do fending can only be done by sqns from same sector and if Hurri and spit, the spit always fends as was the tactic.
I tried the strafing run on the sector airfield in my last game and it worked really well. I was at about -10VP for the whole game and just before Sealion prep was to occur Germany got to max depletion and I wiped them out quite quickly after that. Still, it was the most exciting game so far!
