I'm afraid you'll have to utilize Google for that.

I do a LOT of google-fu from work, and I've yet to find a website that has all the aircraft from EITHER war, let alone both...

Uhm....Amazon.com?
:-)

If Dan decides to release the 'secret formula', you could probably convert anything you could find enough data on....

Aces has a list of raw data for 90+ aircraft for tons of WWI fun!

(That was compiled from aerodrome.com but is in a nifty and easy to use list format which you could use for comparison)

There's a reason why we have two separate systems (aside from the fact that Jim designed the one and I did the other :)). It's that I see the two periods as very different from one another... in WW1, air combat was still very much a dueling atmosphere, which Aces at Dawn simulates. By WW2, "fleet" actions were more the norm, thus Spitting Fire is suited for much larger combat.

Yeah, like I'm gonna hop to it and release cards for these planes within the hour.

Nice try...

It's gonna take at least until Monday. :)

Any more thoughts on releasing the plane calculator?

Yes... some more thoughts.

:D

Seriously, look for a new release for Spitting Fire within the next month or so. It should answer your concerns.

Ok, how about now? :D I just discovered these rules at TMP. I downloaded the PDF and am pretty geeked. I have loads of 1/700 scale aircraft and want to play. Gonna pick up the rules in the next few days.

Been looking for a larger scale aircraft game for several years now. Thought DB Air might come of something but never did.

Do you have a bundle price for buying the print copy and file together?

Thanks,

John

No -- but if you buy the print copy, I may be willing to work something out. :)
