by Fastoso, Mark


Guadalcanal: Floatplane Hell is a scenario and campaign book for the popular CHECK YOUR 6! Air Combat and Campaign Rules. This book provides three mini-campaigns and 10 scenarios under one cover.

The first campaign follows the initial Japanese efforts to reinforce Guadalcanal in early October 1942 including the IJN Nisshin's runs down the slot and combat between US B-17s and Japanese Floatplanes. The second campaign, recreates the fighting over the slot between 9-14 October including floatplane defense of Japanese destroyers and US Navy and Cactus Air Force attacks on shipping. The third campaign focuses on desperate US attacks including a PBY torpedo-bombing attack between 15-19 October 1942. The book also features some of this campaign's legendary pilots including Kiyomi Katsuki, David Everitt, Elisha T. Stover, Jack Cram, Harold Bauer, and Leonard 'Duke' Davis.

AIRCRAFT STATISTICS and CAMPAIGN INFORMATION: This book contains aircraft statistics for 11 Allied and Japanese aircraft (including US B-17E, P-39K, and Japanese Hamp fighters, and Pete and Rufe floatplanes) in CHECK YOUR 6! format for use in the scenarios. The book also contains detailed notes and rare pictures of the various aircraft featured in the campaign.

CHECK YOUR 6! SPECIAL EVENT CAMPAIGN SYSTEM: This book includes an innovative CHECK YOUR 6! campaign system that provides special victory conditions for both sides in each scenario.
