Jet aircraft made their first tentative sorties towards the end of WWII. But it was over the fog-shrouded hills of Korea and the thick jungles of Vietnam that the rules of jet combat were written - rules pilots still live with today. And unlike today, "black boxes" were new and untested. They counted far less than the man in the cockpit.

Wargame depicting air-to-air combat and air-to-ground combat during the Korean and Vietnam conflicts.

The Speed of Heat is the first offering in the new Air Power series of games examining jet combat throughout history. This volume brings to life the magnificent strengths and limitations of the early to mid period jets and their weapon systems.

Continuing in the tradition of J. D. Webster's earlier designs, Air Superiority and Air Strike, The Speed of Heat is fully compatible with both of them.

The Speed of Heat comes ready to fly with 6 geomorphic map sections, 240 counters, and a programmed instruction rulesbook to get you off the ground and on afterburners as fast as possible. If you're looking for the finest in modern aircraft combat simulation by a master designer, check out The Speed of Heat for only.

    La mécanique de déplacement des avions est parfois complexe au début. Surtout quand on doit cumuler des déplacements en virage et sur le plan vertical.
    Pour la simulation des équipements, c'est complexe mais très très réaliste. 
    C'est certainement un des jeux les plus réalistes dans ce domaine permettant du combat aérien, du bombardement et tout cela avec des menaces AAA et SAM. 
    Bref, ce jeu est très bon.
    Seul bémol: Son âge. Un coup de rajeunissement ne lui ferait pas mal. Les pions et cartes sont fades en couleurs. La carte est d'ailleurs séparée en plusieurs morceaux de cartes plus petits. Ce qui permet d'adapter la taille en fonction de ce qu'on veut jouer. Bien et pas bien quand on veut les accoler. 
    J'ai commencé à détailler toutes les règles sur ma chaîne Youtube, ça donner un aperçu plus précis:
