It appears this game was run back in 2012, in the UK, using 1/600th scale aircraft, but it is definitely still worth looking at, if you are interested in inspiration for gaming the RAF night bombing raids during WWII:


You'll have to scroll down a bit, to see the images, but they are worth the effort, since there is a nice depiction of a bomber stream flying over the darkened landscape.

There are searchlights, flak, and enemy nightfighters to contend with along the route.

One of mine from Ancients on the Move – I particularly liked the way they had done the searchlights … We were next door to them for the weekend and the game was very popular …

I didn't get to play it as I was busy on the SoA stand but could see it was a well thought out treatment of an important bit of RAF history.

Thanks for sharing the ground-level pic.

It looks really great, as do the searchlights too.

That's really neat.
I've always wanted to do an RAF Night Mission.

Looks nice, but, no reference as to the rules used.

Agreed, sadly.

Would love to know more about the rules used as well.
