Thread: How many guns?

  1. #1

    Default How many guns?

    In Michael Molkentin's book Anzac & Aviator he states:-

    "Armed with two Lewis guns, the Observer could fire in an almost 360 degree arc, including forwards over the pilot's head and top wing"

    Now that could be a game changer in our WGF fights!

    It already has this rule, doesn't it?
    360 fire against a Higher target (same as Halberstadt C.L. II, Hannover C.L. II/III, Roland C.II)
    I laugh in the face of danger - then I hide until it goes away!

    Yes it is. It's an alternate rule provided by Andrea.
    This is the rule I wrote in the next, still unpublished official supplement:
    Roland C.II/C.IIa, Bristol F2B Fighter, Halberstadt CL.II, Hannover CL.IIIa - altitude and arc's of fire.
    This rule can be used if the altitude rules are also in use. These planes have higher rear machine guns that can be turned 360°: use the arc of fire on the card/base with the blind spot for targets at the same or lower altitude but their rear machine guns can ignore both the blind spot and the firing arc when firing at targets at higher altitude..."
    Under 360 Arcs of Fire for Rear Gunners: in the FAQ/POI sticky.
