Battle of Britain

Order of Battle


The following gives the order of battle for the campaign we are playtesting. There are 50 RAF fighters and 28 GAF fighters, a ratio of about two to one. There are 35 GAF bombers, with a total bomb factor of 61, or a ratio of 1.1 bomb factors for each fighter. I believe the ideal composition would be 1 GAF to 2 RAF fighters, and 1.25 GAF bomb factors for every RAF fighter, but these were the models at hand. There will be a later addition of a big GAF bomber, but that is a surprise. You should work out a ratio that you think offers a balanced game.
