Do I gain VP's, and conditions for enemy Battalions destroyed by a MLRS strike? 2. What happens when the target of a planned airstrike is destroyed by MLRS? Do the aircraft and pilots call it a day?

You destroyed the ENTIRE battalion with MLRS? Wow!

I would assume that you gain the VP, etc. regardless of how the Bttn. was destroyed. I would also assume that since at the beginning of the day you have to designate which aircraft and pilots fly each mission that those pilots and aircraft are unavailable for further missions that day.

But do they have to take the Mission stress I wonder? (Does the mission get scrubbed before the aircraft take off?)

The MLRS strike rolls a die against each unit in a single battalion (not against each battalion on the sector map!). It's a 30% chance to hit each one; I'd be stunned if this wiped out every unit in the battalion. Still, it's possible (say, if you had one of the battalions with just a few units, already reduced to half). Since the event card draw comes after the abort mission option, I'd say the pilots show up, get stress, and go home.

OOPS! Thanks for replying. Even my MEGA MLRS couldn't stop the North Koreans in General War. Another great Leader game.

I had a question about this event a few weeks back and never got an answer...so the attack occurs before the aircraft even show up on the map correct? Not after??

Thanks!

Yes! And you roll for every single unit on the terrain hexes, a lot of rolling, but I wound up taking out one third of the units I was going to face. And then I was cursing myself for having wasted so much SO on missles for that mission as it was a milk run.

Yes. The probability of wiping out a battalion with n units is:

0.3

or for 10 units would be 0.000006 = 0.0006%!!!!surprise

Yeah, but the MLRS will nail at least 5 out of 10 about 15% of the time.
