Relive the intensity of air and sea combat in the Pacific during World War II.

Command each plane in multiple fighter and bomber squadrons to lead attacks on the enemy’s carriers and island bases. No dice, no rulers, only plenty of planes and ships! A fast-paced and streamlined game mechanic that put you in the heart of the battle. Move every plane individually on a hex grid. When you maneuver to get an enemy plane in your sights, it must attempt to dodge or else take damage. Some planes can use torpedoes and bombs do attack ships and ground installations. Stay in formation to keep the initiative and beat your opponent. Every plane has its own attributes in terms of speed, armor, and special abilities.

Every piece is illustrated as close as possible to its historical model to maximize your immersion!

The CORE GAME includes everything you need to play hours of battle over the Pacific Ocean: a huge modular board, 4 aircraft carriers, 4 destroyers, 94 aircraft tokens, 91 game tokens and 8 reference cards. The complete rules and 10 scenarios are also included. The carrier and aircraft tokens represent the forces of 4 real aircraft carriers fighting during 1942, with a ratio of 1 token to 3 aircrafts. For the Imperial Japanese Navy, the AKAGI and KAGA form the 1st aircraft division that participated in the attack of Pearl Harbor and the battle of Midway. For the US Navy, the USS HORNET and USS YORKTOWN were participating in the Doolittle Raid and the Battle of Midway too.
