Blood Red Skies: Aircraft, Aces & Wing Commander Supplement

Die Blood Red Skies Neuheiten können bei Warlord Games vorbestellt werden.

WG Blood Red Skies B 26B Marauder Squadron 1 WG Blood Red Skies B 26B Marauder Squadron 2 WG Blood Red Skies B 26B Marauder Squadron 3

Blood Red Skies B-26B Marauder squadron – 33,50€

The B-26 Marauder was a fast medium bomber with clean aerodynamic lines, all-metal construction and two R-2800 Double Wasp radial engines.

Marauders initially had a high accident rate as its speed and small wings made it difficult to fly. Improved training and a wing redesign rectified this and by the end of WW2 the Marauder had the lowest loss rate of any U.S. Army Air Force bomber. Over five thousand Marauders were built and it served in the European, Mediterranean and Pacific theatres.

Note: a copy of the Air Strike! supplement is needed to use multi-engine aircraft in Blood Red Skies.

Contains three Warlord Resin PlusTM Martin B-26 bombers plus game accessories.

Blood Red Skies Heinkel He 111H squadron – 33,50€

The He 111 was the Luftwaffe’s most numerous medium bomber at the opening of World War 2 and arguably the most iconic. Although it was sturdy and well-liked, the Battle of Britain revealed the He 111’s flaw of weak defensive armament. As more modern bombers became available on the front line the He 111 was progressively moved into various roles including maritime patrol and transport/logistics.

Note: a copy of the Air Strike! supplement is needed to use multi-engine aircraft in Blood Red Skies.

Contains three Warlord Resin PlusTM Heinkel HE 111 bombers plus game accessories.

Blood Red Skies US Ace Pilot James Farrell – 16,00€

In May 1943, Lieutenant James ‘Boss’ Farrell piloted his B-26 Marauder, christened ‘Flak-Bait’ after the family dog, across the Atlantic to join the USAAF 322nd Bombardment Group in England. ‘Boss’ Farrell soon found his bomber was aptly named as it collected numerous hits in his 72 combat missions flown up to and including D-Day. Yet, even when on only one engine, ‘Flak-Bait’ always brought Farrell home. After 102 total missions, Farrell returned to the U.S. in July 1944, but ‘Flak-Bait’ fought on and survived the war with 207 missions in total.

Note: a copy of the Air Strike! supplement is needed to use multi-engine aircraft in Blood Red Skies.

Korean War Ace Pilot: Gan Gyong-Duk – 16,00€

Captain Gan Gyong-Duk led the 59th FAR, a North Korean MiG-15 squadron which was pulled from the frontlines to form a ‘Special Attack Group’ in 1951. Gyong-Duk’s command was tasked with intercepting enemy aircraft of the USN’s Task Force 77, which were then operating over the eastern parts of North Korea largely unopposed.

Gyong-Duk’s early model MiG-15s achieved significant results against American piston-engine Corsairs and Skyraiders. At least 15 USN aircraft were claimed destroyed, with Captain Gyong-Duk being credited with no less than 10 victories. The USN was forced to re-task F9F Panthers as escorts, pulling them away from vital ground-attack missions. For his efforts, Gyong-Duk was awarded with the Hero of the DPRK honour.

Contains one Warlord Resin PlusTM Mig 15 bis aircraft plus game accessories.

WG Korean War Ace Pilot James ‘Jabby’ Jabara 1 WG Korean War Ace Pilot James ‘Jabby’ Jabara 2

Korean War Ace Pilot: James ‘Jabby’ Jabara – 16,00€

James ‘Jabby’ Jabara was America’s first pure jet ace. After flying P-51 Mustangs in WWII, Jabara became highly proficient on the new jets entering service, describing his first flight in the F-80 Shooting Star as the happiest moment of his life.

In the Korean War, Jabara’s 4th Fighter-Interceptor Wing, with the new F-86A Sabre, was deployed to counter the MiG threat. He downed his first MiG on 3 April 1951 and his fourteenth MiG in July 1953. This, with his one victory from WWII, earned him triple ace status. Jabara credited his success to following his three A’s – air discipline, aggressiveness, and aerial gunnery.

Contains one Warlord Resin PlusTM F86F Sabre aircraft plus game accessories.

WG Korean War Ace Pilot John F. Bolt 1 WG Korean War Ace Pilot John F. Bolt 2

Korean War Ace Pilot: John F. Bolt – 16,00€

Bolt was the only U.S. Marine aviator to gain ace status in both WWII and Korea. He scored six victories with the famous ‘Black Sheep Squadron’, VMF-214, in the Pacific.

He started the Korean War flying F9F Panthers with VMF-115, but in 1953 he entered an exchange programme to fly F-86F Sabres with the USAFs 39th Fighter-Interceptor Squadron. Within three months, Bolt downed six MiGs in the notorious ‘MiG Alley’. Bolt retired with the rank of Lieutenant Commander and was awarded the Navy Cross for his actions, he remains the only USMC jet ace.

WG Korean War Ace Pilot Zhao Baotong 1 WG Korean War Ace Pilot Zhao Baotong 2

Korean War Ace Pilot: Zhao Baotong – 16,00€

Zhao Baotong is credited as the first Chinese jet pilot to achieve ace status during the Korean War. Zhao was deputy commander of the 3rd Flying Group of the 7th PLAAF Regiment when China intervened in the Korean conflict.

His first combat with USAF F-84 Thunderjets in November 1951, showed his willingness to attack superior numbers of enemy aircraft and risk G-induced blackouts to achieve favourable shots. Over the next three months, he accounted for seven enemy aircraft destroyed and two damaged. Given the award of Combat Hero-First Class, Chairman Mao Zedong himself praised the pilot saying that Zhao Baotong was worthy of the title ‘King of Air Combat’.

  • Oh hätte nicht gedacht, dass bei Blood Red Skies noch was kommt.
    Da hat mich Warlord nach den Neuheiten für Judge Dredd doch mal wieder überrascht.

    Allerdings haben einige Einzelhändler das Spiel schon rausgeramscht …

    Hab das System auf der Tactica letztes Jahr mal angetestet, interessante Dynamik, nicht ganz mein Genre aber nicht unspannend.
