STAR AND PYRAMID
is a scenario and campaign book for the popular Check Your 6 Jet Age
Combat and Campaign Rules. The book provides comprehensive
coverage of the air wars between Israel and Egypt
between 1966 and 1973 under one cover with five
campaigns and 27 scenarios. The
scenarios can be played individually, linked to form campaigns,
or combined as one grand campaign.
The first campaign covers the Israeli surprise attack on
Egypt and the first two days of air battles in the 1967
Six-Day War while the second covers Egyptian attempts
to strike back over the final four days of the war.
The third campaign covers desperate Egyptian attempts to
regain the initiative in the War of Attrition between
1969-1972 by employing new aircraft, surface-to-air missiles,
and direct involvement from the Soviet Union.
The final two campaigns cover the aerial struggle between Israel
and Egypt during the Yom Kippur War in 1973. The
fourth campaign spotlights the desperate struggle of the
Israeli Air Force against the massive air defense systems of
Egypt. The fifth campaign covers the second half of the
war, when Israel renewed deep strike operations and faced a
surviving and fighting Egyptian Air Force.
The book also features some of the world’s top
jet aces including Michael “Diamond” Haber,
Dan Sever, Giora Rom, Avraham Salmon,
Israel Baharav, Yiftach Spector,
