Strategic Operations: Advanced Aerospace Rules provides advanced rules for aerospace combat and solar system-level campaigns. Previously released as Strategic Operations, it had two printings. In 2021 a third printing was released which removed strategic level rules, commonly referred to as BattleForce, and consolidated them in Interstellar Operations: BattleForce. In keeping with the vintage cover theme, the artwork for the AeroTech box was reused. Later that year a fourth printing was released for the "Year of the Mercenary."
From the back cover
|“||Forces In Solar System!
Liftoff [sic] planet and conquer an entire solar system! Deploy kilometer-long WarShips as escorts, first for JumpShips bridging the gulf between stars, then for detaching DropShips that burn in system to drop troops onto any battlefield. New aerospace tactics will allow you to gain air supremacy to match your grasp of ground tactics. Yet the war for a star system is more than a single battle and a commander that utilizes his supplies and personnel with skill will survive the numerous battles to come.
Strategic Operations is the one-source rulebook for advanced rules aerospace assets that open the entire conquest of a solar system. It includes new aerospace movement, combat and advanced aerospace unit construction rules, as well as comprehensive maintenance, salvage, repair and customization rules.
