    See here for an AAR of a British attack on the German Light Cruiser Emden, plus some scenario notes for British attacks on German naval units on 4th September 1939: http://hereticalgaming.blogspot.co.uk/2017/04/lacquered-combat-attack-on-emden-04-sep.html

    Good to see you playing some interesting games with Lacquered Coffins! Some good points about the bf 109 E and defensive fire. I thought I had double and triple checked the armament of the 109 E, but I somehow got it wrong anyway… dang. Having defensive fire before an attack is a pretty good idea, we will playtest it – Bombers and ground attack aircraft are certainly vulnerable to fighter attack as it is – They need fighter cover to survive!

    Attacks are definitely deadly in Lacquered Coffins – I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or not. On one hand it means things resolve quickly, and it suits short games. From what I’ve read sometimes aircraft really did just explode or disintegrate straight away after a good burst, but other stories indicate taking longer.

    I’m no expert on the details of individual BF109 models, but I believe that for very early (1939) E models, they would have had only 4 x LMGs, replacing two of them with cannons later on, so I should probably try it again with the reduced armament – possibly when I have a go at the scenario depicting the attacks by the Wellingtons.  It will be interesting to see how the Spitfires and Hurricanes fare in similar situations, which is my next project.
