This is a custom card being designed for my Strike North Campaign Scenario which I will be GMing during the upcoming MaizeCon in Waterloo, IA happening in October 2018. There are plenty of card designs already out there by such esteemed individuals as Sharpe, Thor711 and ObstbfEgon. I'm using them as starting points for my own versions. Some have been left entirely intact and others I have modified to my own purposes.
Looking for feedback. What do you think? Is it balanced in terms of cost? Any concerns or questions?
Once I have enough comments / feedback giving approval I will produce the unit card and post it here.
Gloster Gladiator Nationality: United Kingdom Aircraft
Year available: 1940 Cost: 12 ((updated)) Speed: A Defense: 4/3 AI: 8/6/- AV: 3/2/-
Aircraft - Aircraft are placed during the flight phase and attack during the airstrike phase. Units attacking Aircraft use their anti-Soldier attacks and get -1 on each attack die.
Antiair - This unit ignores the -1 penalty on each attack die when attacking Aircraft. If an enemy Aircraft is placed in a hex adjacent to this unit, this unit may make a defensive-fire attack against it.
The 263rd Gladiator Squadron was transported to northern Norway by the aircraft carrier Furious in late May 1940 and operated in Harstad - Narvik area for about three weeks. ((added))
Land Fighter - This unit can't be based on a carrier and it can't benefit from the Expert Dogfighter bonus. Skilled Search - This unit gets +1 on each long range search check. Biplane Overstack - Your land airbase can base one additional Aircraft that has Biplane Overstack in addition to the standard capacity.
Here is another version that I found:
Sea Gladiator Aircraft-Fighter
Introduced Dec 1938 Speed 14 Cost 4 Attacks/M - 1/-/-/-
Vital Armor 6
Hull Points 1
Great Agility - When an enemy fighter rolls successes exactly equal to this unit's vital armor and would destroy it, abort this unit instead. Determined Defender - While this unit is in the same sector as a friendly ship, it rolls one extra attack die when making Anti-Air attacks.
