Luftwaffe is an update of the classic Avalon Hill game covering the US strategic bombing campaign over Europe in World War II.
- As the US commander, your mission is to eliminate key German industrial complexes. You select the targets, direct the bombers, and plan a strategy intended to keep the Luftwaffe off-balance.
- As the German commander, the entire arsenal of German aircraft is at your disposal against the finest in Allied designs.
Turns are quarterly, with German reinforcements keyed to that player’s production choices. Units are wings and squadrons, and they’re rated by type, sub-type, firepower, maneuverability and endurance. There are rules for radar, electronic warfare, variable production strategies, aces, target complexes, critical industries and diversion of forces to support the ground war. Beyond that, the original, classic game system remains essentially sound and hasn’t otherwise been changed much. Most of the upgrade was in adding in additional rules, revising the order of battle, and adding more deployment and industrial options.
