However, I think that for the Japanese player there is little chance of interesting counterattacks, Japan was almost exhausted: it seems to me especially a solitary game, but maybe I'm wrong, I don't know the operational situation of that time.
I take this opportunity to ask if information is available on when the next IWW campaign title could be released, i'm very intersted about it. Obviously if the information regarding this is not classified...
Reegards and congratulation for new title!
The play test team will tell you how effective the Japanese are in this game. We had a reasonable facsimile for their capabilities when looking at the fighting on both Okinawa and Iwo Jima.
The tenacity of the Japanese as well as the terrain has a significant impact on the capabilities of both sides. There are many areas that the US can't get their mechanized/armor into and where they can there is actually a number of Japanese armored units present that have some of their latest tanks. They are a match for the Allies.
Like Normandy, one of the biggest factors is the Allied air power making it hard for the Japanese to move too many forces too far during the day, but there are a range of other considerations that will help the Japanese.
it's a fascinating title and will surprise people I think with the conundrums for both sides....
