Air War is a simulation of modern air combat on an aircraft-to-aircraft level. The aircraft types available in the game are representative of those used by the major powers between the Korean War and the 1980's.

This is a very complex game, but once the mechanics are learned, it seems to run fairly smooth.

I am looking forward to learning this game with another player, as it is not one that you can really do solo and really get into the mechanics and maneuvers.

I am looking to play the Introductory Scenario "Action over MiG Alley, 13 September, 1952"

The Game is available on BGG as well as rules Errata. There is a PBEM spreadsheet also available on BGG.
