    Description

    Star and Pyramid is a scenario and campaign book for the popular Check Your 6: Jet Age Air-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 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, Asher Snir, Eitan Peled, Amir Nachumi, Eitan Ben-Eliyahu and Shlomo Levi. The book also presents the little-known exploits of Egyptian pilots such as Mustafa Hafez, Nabil Shuwakri, Ahmad Atif, Qadri al-Hamid, and Nasr Mousa. The scenarios can be played individually, linked to form campaigns, or combined as one grand campaign.

    HISTORICAL RESEARCH: This book includes several introduction sections containing campaign historical background, an annotated bibliography for further reading, a color scheme guide, and a campaign map.

    AIRCRAFT STATISTICS and CAMPAIGN INFORMATION: This book contains aircraft statistics for more than 20 U.S., British, Israeli and Soviet-built aircraft in Check Your 6: Jet Age format for use in the scenarios. The book also contains detailed notes and rare pictures of the various aircraft featured in the campaign
