The RAF player in GMT Bomber Command has little to do in the game once the raid plots have been created. His main function is to reveal the state of his raids in response to Luftwaffe air defense activities.
The purpose of the Virtual Raid Manager website is to facilitate solo play of GMT Bomber Command by keeping track of RAF raid plots loaded from a randomly-selected text file. Everything else – card play, nightfighter activity, and main force bombing – takes place on the tabletop with map, counters, cards, charts, and dice. The player submits intel queries to BCVRM on a need-to-know basis, avoiding exact raid intel until required by game play.
