SITUATION
The time is the 1970's, the age of the missile and nuclear weapons.
The setting is the confrontation between two nuclear powers. After
a year of bickering and accusation, and complete failure by the
politicians to find a peaceful solution, the' military have take!, the
initiative in one country and are about to deliver a nuclear.attack.
They have three problems to solve:1.

To eliminate the enemy's defences and then rely on the
limited remaining missile's unimpeded attack to cause
sufficient damage.

2.

. To attack the enemy's retalitory capacity to ensure
minimum damage to their own country.

3.

To attack and destroy the enemy's capital and
major cities in the hope that their destruction will
lead to a quick surrender by the defender.

In Ballistic Missile this fateful decision is yours: you are the combined chiefs·of·staff of either the defender or the attacker. As the
attacker you decide each missile's target, and as the defender where
your defences are to be deployed.

No city may be placed within 200 mm of another or the capital. and while his counters are behind this line they may not be engaged by the defender. This line represents the attacker's 'Fail Safe Line'. 2 . and one city must be placed within 500 mm of the 'Fail Safe Line'. RANDOM FACTOR Where. a random factor is called for. 4. Take the lower from the higher of the two scores. The attacker lays out his counters face up on his side of the 'Fail Safe Line'. in the rules. th row one red dice and count the score as minus. and' one black dice and count the score as plus. 1. preferably red and black. where one side represents the attacker and the other the defender. Draw a line across the playing area at least 12" from one edge. TYPE OF GAME The type o~ game played will be an attack/defence game. If the higher score is a plus the random factor is a plus. The defender positions all his missile sites. SOLO GAME The game can also be played as a 5010 game: once the attacker has written his orders they cannot be changed. 5. The defender places Mis 9 radar stations on the board.the pieces have been positioned on the board both sides may make any measurements that they require. 3. The defender positions his capital and two cities. SETTING UP THE GAME The game is set up on any flat surface. The I RBM sites must be placed within 500 mm of the' 'Fail Safe line. 2. 6. When all .EQUIPMENT REQUIRED The only additional equipment required to play the game is a tape measure and two ordinary dice of different colours. If the higher score is a minus the random factor is minus.

GROUND TO AIR MISSI LE SITE These sites have 4 missiles each and are able 'to fire and control two missiles simultaneously. A missile may be detonated at any point along its flight. but if the controlling ground station is destroyed the missiles will detonate at the end of the next move. No missiles may be prepared until the enemy aircraft have been picked up by a friendly radar station. and used to attempt to decoy enemy ground-ta-air missiles away from airc~aft. which has a range of 500 mm. Each missile will take one move to prepare for firing and this may only be done when any frienqly radar station picks up the target missile. (See Radar Station Details) Missiles may be detonated at any point along their"flight. but the station will only be able to control up to two missiles in fljght at the same time. They will be controlled by their firing station and each will contain a 3 mega-ton device. but if its target detonates or its controlling station is destroyed it will detonate that move. A second missile may be prepared and fired while the first is still in flight. The aircraft may fire and control up to two of these missiles at anyone time. which has a radar range of 700 mm (See Radar Station Details). and may not fire until the target is picked up by the firing station's own radar. GROUND STATIONS ANTI-MISS ILE SITE Ground sites which have 4 missiles each and have the ability to fire and control one missile per move. If the controlling aircraft is destroyed the decoy missile will also be destroyed. The missile may only be fired when the target is picked up by the firing station.ANTI-MISSI LE MISSI LE Missiles fired by the defender against the attacker's missiles only. and a second pair may be prepared but not fired while the first pair are in fli!tlt. Each Flight Defence aircraft will carry three decoy missiles and may launch them at the start of a move only. It will take the site one move to prepare two missiles for firing. DECOY MISSI LES Missil~ carried by the Fli!tlt Defence aircraft. 5 .

The 20 mm is measured·from any point on each counter. If the attacker causes no damage to the missile sites this will count against him. The radar range for each site will be 500 mm.in the flight are within 20 mm of each other.RADAR STATIONS These stations have a radar range of 600 mm and may operate on either high or low level scan. then the station will be classed as tracking all three. in order to increase the effectiveness of the defender's electronic counter measures (see later section). and when the station stops tracking it replace the marker behind the ground station counter. who will score point for their damage. If on high level scan they will automatically pick up any missiles or high level bombers. DESTRUCTION OF GROUND TARGETS Ground targets will be classed as destroyed when the mega-ton damage on them exceeds the figures below: 12 18 20 22 Radar site Ground-to-air site Anti-missile site IRBM site ICBM site 25 ~ty ~ Capital 50 6 . as it is assumed that he has left the defender with a high retalitory capability. If only two aircraft are within 20 mm then the station will only be classed as tracking those two. will all be unarmed except for their electronic defences. the capital and the two cities. Place this marker alongside the target counter. Only when on low scan will they pick up low flying aircraft. These sites are the prime targets for the attacker. such as ICBM and IRBM missile sites. (see later section). and all the aircraft. (NOTE: If the station is tracking a flight of aircraft. These stations may lock onto a target and track it. which are detailed later.)

ATTACKER'S ORDERS The attacker writes orders fo( all his missiles and aircraft as soon as the game is set up.remove the 'L~ked On' marker from the first target and place it by the ground station counter. A radar station changing from one target to another will also lose a move in doing so. and war head size. bomber destroyed. When the game starts the defender must write orders for each ground station. including the position of the Break·Up·Point markers. RESULT If the attacker's score is 150 to 300 he is the victor.10 per 5 per 1 per ground·to·air missile destroyed on the ground. 3) The number. If no aircraft are launcheej then up to 3 missiles only may be launched. bomber damaged. anti·missile missile destroyed on the ground. (NOTE: A ground station changing its electronic defence from one target to another will lose one move while doing so. This marker may not then be moved until the defender's next turn. 4) The order in which he will launch his missiles and air· craft. If his score is less than 150 it is a victory to the defender. of each aircraft's SOB lead.. DEFENDER'S ORDERS Initially the only orders that the defender must write is which radar stations are on low level scan. then add or subtract the following: + 10 per + 25 per .DECIDING THE WINNER The winner of the game will be decided when all the attacker's aircraft and missiles have completed their attack. when a station changes its defence equipment from one target to another. To indicate this one move delay. The attacker may launch two flights of aircraft and two missiles.) 7 . He will fill in details on his order sheet covering the following: 1) The target for each missile. or one flight of aircraft and three missiles. and also each attack aircraft's primary and second· . 2) The target for each SOB carried by the ICBM (MRV)s. at the beginning of each of his moves. stating the target onto which its radar will be locked that move.

7) The defender determines the effect on his missiles' guidance systems of any nuclear detonations within range. 4) Attacker moves all his missiles and launches any new missiles. 9) Move defender's ground station 'Locked On' markers for stations which are changing targets this move. Low level aircraft must return to low level flight after delivering their weapons.GAME START AND MOVE SE~UENCE The game will start when the attacker moves his first units over the 'Fail Safe Line'. or. NOTE on defender's missiles: These missiles may be detonates at any point during their move. 3) Determine the effect of the defender's electronic defences directed at the attackers missiles. the aircraft stand less chance of surviving the attack. It will take one move to climb to high level and its forward movement will be reduced to only 10mm that move. 8) Determine if the defender's low scanning radar stations pick up any low flying aircraft. To indicate this place a 'Low Level marker behind the flight. 8 . When aircraft are flying at low level the defender's radar sites will have difficulty in picking them up. 10) Move defender's missiles and detonate them as required. if radar or missile site was tracking low level flights last move. Each game move will be taken in the following sequence: 1) Attacker launches or moves any decoy missiles and determines their effect on enemy ground-to-air missiles. To bomb a target a low flying aircraft must climb to a higher level before releasing its weapons. may not be detonated until they hit the decoy missile or the decoy missile loses contact with them. 5) Determine the effect of any attacker's missiles detonating on ground targets. Ground-to-air missiles. then moves or launches any aircraft flights. which must intercept a decoy missile. if the defender does pick them up and fires missiles. High level aircraft may not descend to low level if they started the game at high level. this being determined by the defending player. 6) Place defender's missile counters against ground sites which have prepared them for firing.) LOW FlYING AIRCRAFT Aircraft may fly in at low level. determine if they maintain the track. 2) Determine the effect of any nuclear detonations within range upon the attacker's missiles' guidance systems or aircraft.

RADAR CHANCE FACTOR (only against low level aircraft) To determine if a low scan radar station picks up or maintains its track of low level aircraft throw one dice and consult the following table: Range in mm o to 100 101 to 200 201 to 300 301 to 400 401 to 600 3 4 5 6 Dice throw to pick up 2 Add 1 to the dice throw if the station is a ground-to-air site attempting to pick up a flight which has already been located by a radar station. A ground-to-air missile site must pick up a low flying aircraft before it can fire its missiles at it. INITIAL FACTOR ICBM (MRV) and ICBM IRBM SOB Ground-ta-air missile Anti-missile missile . each station or site tracking it must dice each move to determine if it maintains the contact. Add 2 if the station or ground-ta-air missile site was tracking the flight last move. has an initial guidance factor representing the missiles ability to reach its target through enemy electronic defences and areas of nuclear detonation. the missiles will detonate that move.

Once an aircraft has been picked up. As this guidance factor falls (record the levels on the Missile Control Chart) the missile will become more susceptible to the defender's electronic defences. If contact is not recognised and there is no radar station locked on.
