Thread: A Modern Winter War

  1. #1

    Default A Modern Winter War

    Hi Folks,

    As my wife is Finnish, I've always been interested in the Winter War and related conflicts from World War II.

    So, as a fun exercise, I'm positing the air conflict forward in time to create some modern-day scenarios.

    The initial "spark" to set the conflict afire seems fairly easy to achieve.

    Russia always enjoys "buzzing" US and NATO reconnaissance aircraft, so imagining a Russian intercept of a P-8A that escalates into shooting between Russian and Finnish aircraft - responding to assist a P-8A that was damaged in a collision from a "buzz gone bad" - is not too challenging.

    That would involve Finnish F/A-18Cs and Russian Su-27s of MIG-29s.

    Thoughts?

    Sounds interesting. Do you have a set of rules you would use for jet combat ?

    I'm considering Check Your Six or home brewing some WoG-style stuff.

    IIRC, someone has already done something along those lines, but I haven't looked for it for ages...

    I did see that CY6 has jet rules as does Aerodrome rules. The Aerodrome uses a hex movement system so a little different.

    Cy6 is a pretty good system but I am not a fan of hexes.
