A follow up to my last post about the TAC II cards I am creating..
I created a batch of cards that are very much like the ones that originally came with TACFORCE. These cards can be used with TAC II, alone, or even in addition to original TACFORCE cards.
If you use these cards along with existing TACFORCE cards, please be aware of the following notes:
Cards have distances listed in meters so they can be used with any gaming scale. If you use these cards with other TACFORCE cards you will need to convert distances to inches.
Penetration factors and armor factors on my cards are rated on a 1 to 100 scale. If you use these cards with other TACFORCE cards you will simply need to divide these numbers by 10. For example a penetration factor on my cards of 190 is equal to a penetration factor of 19 on a TACFORCE card. (In TACFORCE, 1″ = 50 meters)
The initial batch of cards includes 38 cards for mostly modern US and Russian equipment with a few Australian pieces as well. I’ll be adding to this collection from time to time.
You can download the cards from this page: https://tac2game.wordpress.com/
These cards are provided by me to you at no cost and are for personal use only. The cards and the data on the cards are copyright 1983-2015 Allen Rockwell. Please respect my copyright and do not sell or repost these cards anywhere.
First of all, Allen, what an inspiration your blog is. Secondly, I used to have a copy of TacForce which I was forced to ‘lose’ several years ago. A copy is available on eBay right now, which I will probably pick up. One of my main interests is gaming current Nato-Russian scenarios in Europe, and your updated cards will certainly be used. I also would like to have some current Middle East games involving Israel versus the various Arab nations. Do you have any plans of creating Tac II cards for the IDF.
Don, I have all the data for IDF cards, I just need to make the actual cards. I’ll add that to my “to-do” list.
Take your time, I can wait. I just this minute won the auction for the TacForce box set.
