Axis turn 1, move 1 - 110 must move first because of its "limited agility" SA

110 fails normal speed power climb (2d6+3=7 <10) and must move forward 1 space and remain at same altitude, 2nd move into 0709 facing N, no status. An auspicious start.

I haven't play much with altitude so nudge me If I do something wrong.

Ace 1 attempt climb 2D6+4 => 8 failed (one ahead to 0704 and one speed left to 0705)

Will do. You can use a second DM for your Ace to try another climb. I would recommend it, especially since you are now in range of the 110s attack. Could also use scissors to not move a second hex forward.

Your biggest advantage with your aircraft will be the two DMs until they are damaged.

2D6+4 => 10.... Yay!

In 0705 (S) E=4

Question: should I position myself in a dive for an attack advantage?

In that hex, no - you are out of range and would force yourself to dive next round. If you want, move 1 more hex forward and use dive status. You will be safe from bomber but can still make a run at it.

I should of declared what speed I was using but I succeeded a climb on a 10 so I only have 3 hexes of movement so I'm done.

The Spitfire Ace has normal speed 2-4, your moves were:
1 - failed climb, moved one forward
2 - move forward
3 - successful climb, move one forward and increase of alt.

That leaves one move left unless I am misinterpretating the rules. I don't mind you not moving again because I made a mistake by not going into climb status with the 110 :D

Think we should assume we are at normal speed unless we specify high speed.

Good rules discussion.

I thought he had speed 3 so sure he can go to 0706 in dive status.
