Airborne Alert at the printers

Airborne Alert cover.jpgAd Astra Games have announced that their Airborne Alert supplement for Birds of Prey has been sent to press and is available for pre-order.

From their announcement:
Ad Astra Games is proud to announce that Airborne Alert, the first supplement to Birds of Prey, reached its pre-order goal in a matter of days. We’ve decided to continue offering the pre-order deal a little longer.

Birds of Prey: Airborne Alert is a new folio product covering interceptors and their targets, with a foray into early aggressors. This folio is a collection of fourteen ADCs (plus two more in PDF form, when the product is registered) and eight missiles, plus a set of rules for large aircraft (defensive gunnery, critical hits for large aircraft, missile fuses versus large aircraft) and an exciting set of scenarios (roughly ten, including two sets of generic scenarios). The registration gift PDF also includes the AIR-2 Genie nuclear tipped rocket.

Birds of Prey: Airborne Alert also contains several additional box-miniatures and missile tents supporting the original game-box and registration pack, including additional wing-positions (for swing-wing aircraft) and alternate markings.

Birds of Prey: Airborne Alert is offered in two versions, standard for $34.95 and deluxe for $44.95.

The standard edition (ADA 31002) contains two each of two sheets of die-cut box-miniatures, missile tents and counters and one sheet of uncut box-miniatures and missile tents, including the truly massive B-52D box miniature. (Five sheets total.)

The deluxe edition (ADA 31002-DX) contains four each of the two die-cut sheets and two each of the uncut sheet. (Ten sheets total.)

Birds of Prey: Airborne Alert is still available for pre-order (but not for long).
