It only works for x-wing because star wars uses non newton physics unlike b5 especially which uses a more realistic approach to space combat.

In fact it is better suited for atmospheric flight games than any "realistic" space simulation.

The Warhammer 40k version of the game was named Aeronautica Imperialis and the reason no one plays it anymore is that it simply isn't produced anymore. It also does not simulate space combat but air battles in atmosphere. There was also Battlefleet Gothic but those were larger ships in space and the movement system it has is better suited than if you would adapt the X-Wing system.

All WWI and WWII miniature games could benefit using this game mechanics. For my behalf dogfights in Star Wars are much like dogfights in WWI. Apart from any game - just watch the movies … i mean its actually high-tech, they are travelling throufg space, wielding beam weapons and stuff … and when it comes to a fight, the fight distances are about like they are armed with 8mm machine guns. Ihe laser beams fly through the 'air' like glowing tennis balls. I think FFG did a very good job putting the WWI dogfight feeling from the Star Wars movies in the X-Wing Miniatures game.

I've said it before, but I'll happily say it again: Robotech/Macross. Use X-wing movement templates for veritechs in fighter or guardian mode, use "Wings of War"-style movement cards for units on the ground. Would be pure rolled-gold awesome.

you guys make some good points. WWI and WWIIdog fhights would be epic with this macnaic .I cant beleive i left Macross of my list and with some tweaking Gundam would be an amasing aditon to this list as well.

two words, Crimson Skies, It would be nice to see it done proper, and these mechanics would be perfect!!!

though I might have the pilots seperate from the planes, (ie base plane cost, plus pilot card cost) because the pilots flew many different types.

Would LOVE to see Battlestar Galactica small ships using this game system.  There are probably some tweaks that could be made to the movement dials to better reflect the movement capabilities of the Vipers and Raiders.  Maybe they would be able to "yaw" on their flightstands to a certain degree but still maintain forward flight; flipping 180 to shoot at your opponent would cause the pilot to take a stress token.  Or something like that.

The biggest problem I can see is that there wouldn't be the range of ships that we have available in X-Wing.  There would be Mark II and Mark VII Vipers, of course, and Raptors; on the other side there would be standard and heavy Raiders.  Maybe there could be several versions of the Raptor and the Heavy Raider--missile boats, gunships, electronic warfare, etc…

This game never got the attention or wide appeal it deserved, IMO.

Absolutely! This is exactly what Crimson Skies needs. CS has always suffered from overcomplicated game play and these mechanics are just what the game needs to be fresh and fun. Maybe someone need to work on some mods… I still have a bunch of planes.
