Description Edit | History

From the publisher's website:

"B-29 Superfortress is a solitaire game featuring the technologically most advanced bomber of the Second World War - the B-29 - flying as part of the Twentieth Air Force from the Marianas Islands against targets in and around Japan in late 1944 and 1945.

The game puts you in the cockpit of a B-29 Superfortress as you fly your missions over Japan. Your goal: successfully complete a tour of 35 missions and return home a hero for bringing the war with Japan to a close without a bloody hard-fought invasion of the homeland.

Your missions will be varied: high level, low level, day and night. You will face fighter attacks, flak, searchlight spotting, and bad weather; not to mention damage to your aircraft to include a shattered windshield and compromised cabin pressure, loss of oxygen supply, damaged landing gear, knocked out navigation or communication equipment, ruptured fuel tanks, inoperable machine gun armament, and just about anything else that can go wrong with a 100 ton aircraft flying 1,500 miles to its target only to be met with fierce resistance from a determined enemy."

6 Smaller navigation and combat player aids for B-29 Superfortress
I created separate player aids, one for combat and one for the navigation tracks, cabin pressure, altitude, and weather. Each one is sized 8.5 x 11 inches so they use up half the table space as the original chart. (I have the 1st edition, I don't know if the 2nd ed is the same or not) The navigation chart has a map of the Pacific as the background- it's not used for gameplay, it's just there as chrome.

10 B-29 Revised Mission Log
I revised the mission log sheet to my personal liking. I removed several things, but added some others. The biggest was the personal change to the on/off course chart. I incorporated the time of day w/ the zones and added landing and takeoff time to the chart. It's still in its infancy, so please let me know if you have any ideas to make it better.

9 58th Bomb Wing
58th BOMB WING, B-29s in the CBI Theater - a B-29 SUPERFORTRESS variant. This variant was first based on the Beta version of B-29 SUPERFORTRESS by Steve Dixon and Shawn Rife. It covers the period from April 1944 when the first B-29s landed in India and China and began the supply missions from India to the forward bases in China around the town of Chengtu, to the last B-29 mission from the China-Burma-India Theater on March 29, 1945. Supply Missions can be flown from April 1944, but are included in this variant only as an option. The campaign begins in June 1944 and ends in March 1945. Most of the targets bombed by the 58th Bomb Wing are included and divided into three tables which each span over a few months, or a certain number of missions. It is also possible to fly mining missions....
