Tactica Aeronautica was the only supplement released for the 2006' version of the Aeronautica Imperialis game, and introduced new aircraft, some additional variants for craft from the original game, plus army specific upgrades. The main addition to the game introduced by this book was an expansion of the original campaign system and came with a lengthy narrative of an aerial war fought between the Imperial Navy and the Tau on Typha-IV


The book is divided into the following sections :[1]

New Aircraft

Although sharing the same name as the Ork Bommer in the Warhammer 40,000 Death from the Skies supplement it is a very different aircraft, being much larger and slower.

Squadron Lists

The Squadron List collected together all of the aircraft from the original Aeronautica Imperialis rulebook with the new aircraft, variants and upgrades introduced by Tactica Aeronautica.


Datasheets for the new aircraft and variants introduced by Tactica Aeronautica.

Typha-IV Campaign

The section starts off with a 42 page narrative detailing the campaign fought between the Imperial Navy and the Tau on Typha-IV. The campaign system is presented as an alternative to that in the original Aeronautica Imperialis rulebook and is modeled on the actions that take place on Typha-IV.


In addition to new scenarios an expansion to the rules for ground targets is provided together with a Step-by-Step guide to modelling and painting an Imperial Airbase by Phil Stutcinskas.

Battle Report

Raid on Supply Base Theta-Nine-Four is written in the same style as the regular White Dwarf Battle Reports and is based on an engagement between the Tau and the Imperial Navy during the Taros Campaign.

Tactica Aeronautica

A brief discussion on tactics plus a Q&A for the Aeronautica Imperialis rulebook and finally some Designer's Notes by Warwick Kinrade.
