A6M3 Zero, as well as 3 American fighters- A P-38J Lightning, a
P-39D Airacobra, and an FM-1 Wildcat. Each of these plane has varying pilot experience and special abilities that makes them stand apart from each other. The rules only take a little while to figure out and are a lot of fun, revolving around making risks while maneuvering and positioning yourself. The pre-painted miniatures themselves are surprisingly large and look great.
It also includes the cards (Standard size, 63.5mm x 88mm (2.5" x 3.5")) for all 31 planes in the Bandits High line. The cards are not included in the boosters so you will need this set to start. The nice thing is that if you have it you can easily proxy any of the other units if you want. This is also a good starter in that it actually feels like a full game on its own and that extra boosters are a bonus and not a requirement. It is also worth noting it is compatible with the Angels 20 line, though you would need the starter for that as well.
Overall I'd highly recommend this set, it is definitely worth the cost. (Posted on 9/17/2015)
