Episode 137: Into the Wild Blue Yonder

Rich in Caracao
Off we go in the wild blue yonder, taking you to new heights with a soaring discussion of the Air Support Rules. Learn what it takes to make that Spotting Check and dive in for the kill.
Once again we are joined by Rich Spilky and Dave Ramirez who add a wonderful air of authority to the proceedings. We also try to get the jump on you with a statistical look at Ambush. Rich uses both Dave Olley's Journal article and one from an old issue of the Rout Report to give us the low down.

  1. I have to say I think this is one of your best episodes. Just the right mix of banter and relevance to "The Game", I've always struggled through the air support rules and this episode and the Jim sexton chart link really question though.....maybe Rich can help with this one...Can a Stuka making a point strafing only attack "Auto pin" it's target infantry?

  2. My understanding is that the 'auto pin' is only applicable during a stuka's point attack, not strafing run.
