We played a six person “dogfight” this weekend, three versus three since everyone was just learning the game. One of the Brits lined up to shoot a German, but another Brit was below him by 200 meters, fired and hit the German.

Since there is nothing in rules about having a friendly aircraft between you and an opponent, I'd like to add some risk or consequences for one’s action.

I was thinking that one would have to roll one dice; either a "1" or "2" and you hit your wingman. If you hit your wingman, then the normal two dice roll to see how much damage he took to include the possibility of Critical Hits as well...

Any thoughts?

Big sky, small bullets. While I am sure it must have happened on occasion, I don't think friendly fire was a big concern. It was hard enough to hit a target you were aiming at without worrying about hitting somebody else completely at random. Remember that it's a dynamic, three-dimensional space and the planes are also much larger in size than scale. Just because it may look like your two planes were lined up, the reality would be that they almost certainly would not be.

Collisions were more of a danger
