I belive not to the same extent that strat. bombers did.

Torpedo bombers tenned to make their runs in flight's or less I belive. (At least Brits did on attacks at torentino and on the bismark.

But they would tend to keep to a fromation to get to the target to an extent for mutal protection.

So I think both options are still viable, through the first is more likely for them.

Formation wasn't so important, keeping a straight course at the target on terminal approach was.

We did well. Some nice sweeps by squadrons trapped some isolated opponents. But where we were evenly matched things stayed balanced. Given that our planes were "cheaper" that kept us ahead nicely and drove the Allies from the air.

I felt that that numbers - speed and hits - were a bit high, in that they could drag the game out some. Though, with fewer planes that may be just about right. Hard to judge from that crowded table. :)

60 planes is probably a bit too many.
In our playtest game last Tuesday, we played with two squadrons of three Spitfires, and two squadrons of four ME-109s, and had a great time.
My guess is the game will really shine using anywhere from two to four squadrons of planes for each side.
