While the additional rules for a whole two new versions of play are helpful and interesting, as is the rules for new items like the sawed off shotgun, I am surprised the AKS-74U is still not in the game.

SMGs and Sawed Offs are in the game, despite their being only one of each in both STALKER and Metro games. The "Sushka"/"Krinkov" has one model in each game as well, and is described in the Metro 2033 book.

Just a missed opportunity.

What would you suggest for the AKS game stats?
Seems it falls in the crack between SMG and Assault Rifle; ammunition and rate of fire are the same as a full size AK but the range and accuracy drop off due to the shorter barrel.
It's essentially a SMG with a lower FP but higher Damage.
House Rule it if you have a particular miniature with suitable backstory.

I currently have it listed as 30" of range and 3 firepower. Because of it's range and lower cost, I don't have it with any damage.

It's a pretty popular choice in the three games I've played.

I understand why you would argue it should have the same range as the SMG, but 3 firepower and 1 damage. This is realistic for range, but the Krinkov seems to do very poorly against armor.

Mostly, I wanted to model how it behaves in the games. The people I play with were talked into playing Zona Alfa, because they like STALKER or Metro.

Makes sense. In the PC games, I tend to end up with a heavily modified AK as my primary ranged weapon.
Good hunting with your Krinkov. Thanks for weighing in.

I really wish there was a version of this that included the relevant rules so it could be a standalone game. Having to jump between two different books for terms and stuff I'm not already familiar with, just so they can be modified in a supplemental book is a PITA. Granted, I haven't had a chance to actually play yet, but Kontraband is definitely more interesting to me than the PVP version.

I understand. Thing is, Zona Alfa is owned and published by Osprey. This supplement for solo and co-op play was self-pubbed by me, the author, with Osprey's permission. If you want a combined omnibus type book, you should reach out to Osprey with the suggestion.

Since last year I've managed to get a few games of Zona Alfa in. I almost retract my previous comment because the rules are so easy to learn that the nuances of Kontraband don't seem to add any confusion, so good job on that!

Getting in table time makes a huge difference. Glad to know you enjoyed the game.

Hi. The printed version is available at Amazon. For the foreseeable future, WGV will be pdf only.

Unfortunately it is not (yet) available at Amazon Germany. Seems like we have to be patient and use the time to build some terrain for our exclusion zones :)

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.

Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
