You're right...the Rising Sun is a somewhat "neglected" branch of the CS series.
It's evident with the OOB. Many units have issues.
I'm still hoping Jason might get back to me...I've had to resort to turning Armor Facing OFF in order to get the Japanese landing craft to work. With Facing ON...they have a defense of ZERO...and that won't do!
It's been fun researching the WW2 San Francisco Bay Area as well.
It was a hornets' nest of Army bases, Navy bases, Liberty shipyards, Ford plant making Shermans, GMC, etc.
A far cry from the navel contemplating, peace loving bunch of hippies I grew up with...
I hope you find the desert scenario enjoyable.
Good to hear from you Ash.
