Has there been any development of Bag the MiG or Fox 2?

I've been doing a lot of research on Vietnam. Wondering if Fox 2 is viable.

I just finished my “Tonkin Gulf Yacht Club” scenario book and I wanted to convert it to Fox 2.

I’m not aware of anything other than the odd Specials scenario. Neither are mainstream TFL products so I doubt they have had or will get any development time other than from players.

I have had success marrying Avalon Hill's old Flight Leader game with Bag The Hun.

The very short version to convert FL aircraft to BTH at the same scale as FL is:
n = SPD 6
N = SPD 7
H = SPD 8
non-afterburning a/c = ROC 1
afterburning a/c = ROC 2

I use the tables from FL as given for formations, spotting & weapons except I ignore any modifiers that have to do with speed, and I always add or subtract pilot skill/luck from any final Pk.

If you are familiar with Flight Leader, it works quite well in a pinch.
