Wing Leader is a game of Second World War aerial combat, with a focus on large-scale air battles. The basic unit in Wing Leader is the squadron or flight. Unlike conventional air games, where the world is viewed from above, Wing Leader views the air battle from the side.
Wing Leader is a series of games. There are two core volumes. The first is Wing Leader: Victories 1940-1942, covers the key aircraft and battles of the early war. Further expansion sets, such as Wing Leader: Origins 1936-1942 and Wing Leader: Blitz 1939-1942, fill in gaps in the aircraft inventory and add more scenarios.
This first volume focuses on the fighting from 1940 to 1942, with scenarios for the Battle of Britain, Malta, Coral Sea, Midway, North Africa, and Stalingrad. Future games will expand the system to the late war.A complete game of Wing Leader: Victories 1940-1942 include:
