For GT2 the scenario states an DPRK Initiative Turn. This is important as an initiative turn provides three movement and combat opportunities to the attacker. Right now the northern offensive has broken into the ROK line of fortifications in all secors of the front. This turn the KPA needs to break through the DMZ. The DPRK Supreme Command decides to reinforce success and shift the main point of effort to the central sector. The object in this sector is to break through the DMZ and take the city of Uijeongbo.

Next War Korea Strategic Surprise

In this scenario I assume the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) leadership sees a favorable opportunity for reuniting Korea under communist rule. Everybody is taken by surprise including their Chinese allies who now face a dilemma. On the on hand they are unwilling to risk major hostilities with the US, but at the same time a downfall of the north korean regime with the possibility of US allied forces knocking at china’s dorstep  is a national no-go. The People’s Republic of China (PRC) therefore decides to keep their intervention to  logistics, intel, some air and naval assets, and special operation forces, in game terms: Intervention Level 2: +9 VP to Allied [UN+1].

Truck EVAC

The Truck EVAC Mission is quite unique among DVG’s Warfighter mission cards. The main point is to survive the first encounter on the Objective card and then to reserve enough Action Points to safely drive the truck home to the mission card.

Libya 1984 Mission #1

A-6 Intruder VFA-34

For the first mission I choose Target no. 12 “Enemy Tanks”, a target situated far inside the Libyan desert near Murzuq. It is a dispersed vehicle target that needs 8 hits to destroy and gives one -1 victory points, if not completely taken out. The range calls for a -3 wight point and +3 stress value for each aircrew. First I spend 5 special option points for tanker priority. This will cancel the wight penalty and allow all the aircraft to carry full armament.
