    Good day all, after a long break I manage to lay it on a table again, here few questions while playing 1943 campaign.

    Pulled Rennes Mission which required 8 escorts, but I don't understand rule 4.5 why I need to rolla a 1D6 if I already know how many escorts I need to place on a Formation Card ESCORT space

    The box distance that each type of escort can apply is referring back and forth from the Air Force Base or is one direction? In this case Rennes is at the 5th box from base and my P-38 can travel up to 8 spaces so can they reach Rennes or the have to make their return at the 4th box?

    On Formation Events Table 6.1 I rolled for Enemy Fighters, and I had a very bad roll with 6 BR-109. So at that point I started immediately 9.0 rule, rolling at 9.1.4 none of mine P-38 manage to fight so I choose 9.1.5 rule for adding 2x P-38 against the Intercetors, how 9.1.6.1 & 9.1.6.2 rules are applied?

    If Wingmen are not withdraw after a potential 2nd round of fight does the battle continue with the remaining Interceptors?

    Once the airfight with escorts is completed then the Interceptors are battling against the bomber, can you please tell me how to read the 6.3 table for placing the Interceptors vs Bombers?

    Thank you!
