Date: November 4, 1945 - Size, Medium - Location: Ariake Bay, Southern Kyushu, Japan - Intended for Head to Head or Solo play as the Allied side. For Solo Victory Conditions see the file "J45-Solo-Vic-Cond.pdf" in the main game folder. This version of the scenario goes with the historical landing assignments for the US divisions. The 43rd Division would land at Dusenberg and De Soto Beaches and take the small port and airfield of Shibushi and then drive inland to the northwest towards Aoki. Meanwhile, the 1st Cavalry Division would land at Ford Beach and drive westward to eventually reach the Kagoshima Bay. Following up the assaulting divisions on X+3 would be the American Division (not present in the scenario). The 112th Regimental Combat Team would be in floating reserve ready to land to reinforce the assaulting forces sometime after X-Day. No plan was ever completely completed so we have added the 112th RCT to land in the afternoon at Essex Beach.

Very hard for the US player to win. Victory level changed on the last turn

Once I got my forces off the beaches which wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be I had a tough time breaking through the second line of defenses. I felt like my forces just ran out of gas. American airpower is awesome had some massive hits on Japanese troops on the road. Also Napalm is very handy.
