Darrell takes a look at the fearsome Nazi jet fighter… the Me 262 A2a Sturmvogel for Flames of War!
Vogel means bird, so Sturmvogel is stormbird
Modelling note. Personally I would fill in the panel lines. They look far too overscaled especially with a heavy wash as per the photo above. At 1/144 scale (?) the drag caused by the trenches would easily allow fighters to intercept. lol The bombs should be placed further forward under the nose iirc. Darrell has placed them too far back.
The Me262 was also known as the Schwalbe (Swallow)
Non game fact. Thanks to Allied air superiority the Me262 was easy pickings over there airfields when taking off/landing due to the length of time required to lift off/land.
As far as I understand it the aircraft dice is only a marker for the strength of the flight is not meant to be rolled. To get a strength of a flight you will need to roll a D6 and consult the table on page 179 of the rule book
You can roll the aircraft dice but the D6 works on the same system. If you have Devils charge and are usinng this model prepare to find it a very hit or miss unit. But for 109 points it is something I include in my 1750 force without moaning about it too much.
