Booklet has a full set of color charts for use with Tractics WWII miniature wargaming. The charts are identical to those at the back of the rulebook. Included are 45 pages in a Landscape View. For most games, one might need about 20 charts, but if using a vehicle found on all of the 16 Vehicle Data charts, 30 charts may be required. The reason for the excess pages is that the Tractics 2nd Edition has three versions: • Classic edition as published in the first edition in 1971 • Modifications from TSR's Little Wars magazine in 1976 • Updates as published in the second edition in 2021 A gamer can mix and match versions to make a custom game system that suits your players. For example, there are: • Two Turn Sequence versions • Three Movement (each of which is found on two charts: Vehicles, and Men & Horses) • Three Concealment & Detection versions • Direct Fire Mode, which is mostly Classic with very few Modifications and Updates • Additional Weapons & Shells (21% more gun types—bore/caliber combinations with their penetrations by range) • 138% more vehicles on 16 Vehicle Data charts (233 armored fighting vehicles now, 95 originally) for 11 nationalities (6 originally) • Three Morale & two Melee versions • Infantry To Hit in two versions with new automatic weapons have been expanded with an additional chart for the new Grenade rule and Close Assaulting Vehicles and Fortifications Three Artillery versions including the original Indirect Fire Mode • Bonus Aircraft & Buildings pull-out appears in this edition for the first time Printed in premium color on heavier 80-pound paper stock with a coil. binding so the book stays open and flat.
