CHECK YOUR 6! What is New
November 2019 -- We have released Tonkin Gulf Yacht Club, a CY6-JA scenario book focused on the US Navy's air battles over Vietnam from 1965-1968. This book is the product of over three years of research, including many veteran interviews. We are proud to present this book in honor of the veterans of the Vietnam War. We are also working on several new CY6 books including putting the finishing touches on CB's Iran-Iraq War book - it will be the most modern of all our books and it is filled with really interesting (and entertaining) match-ups.
December 2015 -- Work is continuing on no less than FOUR CY6! and CY6! - Jet Age books.

In addition, two CY6!-Jet Age books focuse on Vietnam are in development. The first to be released will focus on the US Navy's war over Vietnam from the early stages through 1969. The second will focus on all US forces fighting in Linebacker I and Linebacker II in 1972.

The planned release date for the rules is July 2010. We also hope to release at least one scenario book at this time with two others quickly to follow.
9 January 2007 -- Chris Pringle informs us that his "Aces Over Hungary" Scenario/Campaign book is on schedule for Fall 2008 release. Here is the picture we plan to use for the cover, it features a battle that will also be in the book.
Here is the update from Chris:
"The book covers the air war over Hungary from March 1944 to the end of the war. In 26 scenarios, it effectively provides two campaigns in one cover. The first half pits the Royal Hungarian Air Force against the US 15th AAF's strategic bombing campaign. In the second half the Hungarians contest the sky with the Red Air Force as the Red Army overruns Hungary. The book has been prepared in close collaboration with professional Hungarian military historian Csaba Becze, and draws heavily on the uniquely valuable information he has obtained in over 15 years of interviewing veterans and researching in Hungarian, German, Russian and US archives. Much of the information in the book will therefore be made available for the first time in English, or indeed, in any published form. As well as clearly portraying the evolution of the two campaigns, the book features appearances by many aces including the war's top ace Erich Hartmann, the famous Hans-Ulrich Rudel's Stukageschwader, the "Tuskegee Airmen", and a Soviet artillery observation balloon."
