I’ve started compiling some Crossfire amendments for refighting the Arab-Israeli conflicts. I’ve also started putting together scenarios – particularly for 1948-49.
This is just an abbreviated list of my Crossfire House Rules that are relevant to the Arab-Israeli Wars, and how to apply them in this war.
Use rocky areas, boulder fields, and lots of crests and depressions. Lines of sight are a bit longer than in a normal CF setup, but the game works fine.

The Aircraft special rule is applicable to the Arab-Israeli wars. The air superiority modifier depends on which year the games is being played in:
|Year||Air Superiority Modifier|
|1948 – 55||0||0|
|1956 – 66||+1||0|
|1967 – 72||+3||0|
|1973 – 81||+1||0|
The AFV actions special rule can be used.
