View Full Version : Ordinance [AC] querry

Another one of those times when brooding where I suddenly wasn't sure if I had a key game mechanic straight or not.

Basically I'd like to clear up fighters. Am I correct in assuming that one fighter marker takes out an entire bomber/assault boat wing, but remove each other one for one? Also are all fighters removed even if they weren't needed?

Say two fighters attack one fighter [or any ordinance marker for that matter]: are all three removed, or is one removed from the wave and the extra remains, free to move and engage in the next ordinance phase?

One fighter Attacks two bombers/assault boats: Are all the bombers/boats removed, or is only one removed?

Fairly sure I've got it, but always good to check.

I thought it was a 1 for 1 situation, across the board.

Ditto, one for one.

pg. 29: "Remove both the attacking and defending markers from play."

A bomber squadron consists of one marker. A wave of bombers consists of several squadrons/markers, so it will take several fighter squadrons/markers to eliminate it fully.

A torpedo wave always uses one marker no matter how many torpedoes are in it (pg. 28), so it will be entirely eliminated by a single fighter.

Ah, good to know. That changes things a little.

Many thanks
