|Opening Salvo: Reserves|
|Part 6: Aircraft|
|by Robert Mull|
Axis and Allies Miniatures: Reserves hits store shelves on November 10th. Last week we looked at two new Minor Nation units, the Polish Determined Infantryman and the Hungarian Turan I tank. We also previewed the images of this installment of Opening Salvo's stat cards. This week we will look at a pair of aircraft, one an experimental Axis prototype and one that was a mainstay of the Allies in the Pacific War
The American F4U Corsair makes for a great anti-personnel and anti-aircraft unit. It has good attack numbers versus soldiers and its bombs are effective against soldiers and light armor. With Superior Armor 2, it's designed to take some damage and stay in the fight. The Dornier Do 335 allows players to wield a German experimental aircraft in their warbands. While it's attack numbers are fairly average it has the advantage of Speed Boost. Speed Boost allows this unit, once per game, to apply the effects of its attack immediately. That means if you destroy an enemy aircraft with your roll, it is gone, immediately.
Check back next week when we preview more units from Axis and Allies Miniatures: Reserves. Next week's previews will feature the stat cards for the two Japanese units shown below. While you wait, go discuss this unit and other miniatures on our message boards.
