it has the potential for great comedy … epically if you have a lot of flack and shoot down your own aircraft! :p

Its one of those rules that can greatly vary between games from really bad (have 2 friendly airstrikes) to absolutely evil (2 airstrikes that neutralise the whole enemy force) and pretty much everything inbetween.

It also has the downside of the first one has to come in before you call the second in – this gives you the result of not getting the second, either due to the game ending or the FAO getting removed.

So long answer short – can be fun, can get a lot out of it… or you could end up with the same waste of points as any other FAO
ps – a lot of the time Soviet players are only using half  their rules (massed batteries rairly gets table time, and comissars… well only 2 out of the 3 actually have that rule)..
