Update: TAC II Cards Available For Download

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/

New TAC II Cards

I spent quite a bit of time this weekend making some new “TACFORCE” style cards for my TAC II game.  My game can be played using vehicle data sheets and weapon data sheets but I think I’m finding that when playing small scenarios with only a few different types of equipment on the battlefield, these data sheets can become a bit of an information overload … there is a lot of information there that is not needed for the scenario being played.  So, the next game I run at the Orccon convention next month in Los Angeles will be played using “TACFORCE” style vehicle data cards, this way there should only be about 6 cards required for the entire game.  As the scenario is designed right now, there will only be M1A1 Abrams, M2 Bradleys, HMMWVs, T-72s, BMP-1s and GAZ Tigrs.
