See Airforce. Well worthwhile to get since it adds in quite a number of missing planes.

Move over to the PTO as take on the IJN in your dive bomber. More fun as a WWII pilot using the Air Force system.

After playing the original Battleline version, I really just can not handle the new color AH versions of the cards. I highly recommend the Battleline version if you can find it.

AH

This game suffers a bit from "box-squash"

Acquired with Air Force in a bulk sale of ASL games and re-sold on ebay.

2d air combat doesn't hold up to the computer...

A "rara avis" expansion. Only released by Battleline, never published by AH. It adds planes that should have come with the original Air Force. It also adds European Theater ships and new rules.

It adds a lot of variety to the basic game.

No structurally different with Air Force. Give you more planes and the fighting now is in the pacific.

Nice add on to the Battleline version of Air Force / Dauntless, never published in TAHGC version. Whole system stood the test of time for quite a while.

This add-on for the Battleline editions of Airforce and Dauntless was well received. It included many of the aircraft that fans of the game craved for.

Just bought this expansion via ebay....no regrets!!! Played as fine as Air Force....and tactics of various planes come in. Lesson #1. Never dogfight a zero with a p-40!!!

Spent many an evening with Air Force/Dauntless/Sturmovik - some of them sober...

The expansion kit adds aircraft and scenarios from the Pacific theater.

Soviets, Italians, and French, oh my! Also includes additional British, German, US, and Japanese aircraft. Unfortunately, the Battline aircraft cards are not as easy to read as the revised AH cards.

By
Included in Air Force by Battleline.

Lots of nice new aircraft. Great addition to this game.

By
Box is rough and weathered but the game is good and mostly unpunched.

A realistic portrayal of WWII air combat (Pacific theater). Fun, but not a fast play.

Not a must have but still more air combat gaming goodness.

Single planes fighting it out - bit heavy on the rules and iffy on rules explanation. Still, not bad.

Adds the Pacific Theatre to the fray. Have the AH module. Shows a Dauntless on the cover but wouldn’t recommend it over a Wildcat! The Zero is a nice airplane and maneuvers well but still can be beat with a P-40 if you’re wily enough!

By
Nice add-on for Air Force and Dauntless.

Seeing as I liked Air Force so much, yep i got this one too

By
Parts only from Battleline edition: Complete set of airplane data cards and rules, only.

Best thing - lots of new planes to fly! hard to beat the variety, but the reality is not very high...

I used to play this series of games a lot until J.D. Webster's Fighting Wings series came out. Fighting Wings is much better.

By
Never played.

Ships for Air Force/Dauntless, and more planes. Yeahh!

Good game, but can get dull quick. I liked the European Theater better, so I didn't play this one as much as Air Force.

By
Unpunched copy

This is a must have for all those who (like me)own Air Force/Dauntless.

A great air war simulation game. So many planes to fly so little time. Even more planes and nations for Air Force & Dauntless.

Great addtion to the Airforc and Dauntless games. Adds new planes that are enjoyable to learn to fly on paper.

The second extension for Air Force : It gives all the european and russians planes necessary to play all the campaigns that you want to simulate over Europe. You also have more rules and all the main European warships of World War two.
