Just in case anyone's interested, the 70th anniversary of the Cold War dogfight between the USAF and the Czech Air Force coming up in March. If you have a coupe of spare F-84s and MiG-15s knocking about you can recreate it easily – if you have a couple of spare F-86s then you can also play a 'what-if' rematch for when the US replaced the F-84s later the same year.

I've written a short article with the background and how I put the two games in a mini-campaign; it's available free of charge on Wargames Vault, here:

When I played it I was the Americans, and I got my backside kicked! You can see my play through on the blog: link

Looks interesting, but link set "URL not found". Btw, I'll be turning 70 this year, so grew up in the Cold War Era, but never heard of this tussle.

This is a great product!

Good looking, lots of background info, flexible. I hope I can give it a try soon!

Andrew – thanks for posting the correct link and I hope you enjoy the scenario.

What a fabulous little package! I was not aware of having even a smidgeon of interest in this sort of thing, but now that you have done practically everything to eradicate even the smallest excuse for inertia – planes and decals more or less handed up on a plate, forsooth – and have made it look such fun, it's going to be really hard not to send off a couple of orders and then … Curse you, Jones …
