Date: November 4, 1945 - Size, Medium - Location: Ariake Bay, Southern Kyushu, Japan - Intended for Head to Head or Solo play as either side. For Solo Victory Conditions see the file "J45-Solo-Vic-Cond.pdf" in the main game folder. Narrative: The landing in Ariake Bay for the XI Corps was a bloody mess! The US commanders were not expecting the elite 86th Infantry Division to be defending the beachhead. As a result losses were high and the troops took until 4pm to exit the landing areas and press inland. On the 5th of November the Japanese received reinforcements - the advance elements of 98th IM Brigade began arriving early in the morning. Formations from the 77th Infantry Division also arrived later in the morning. Can the US forces wrest the inland VP locations from the Japanese forces?

Had a second chance to play this scenario with Bioman. This scenario boils down to how lucky the US is at getting off the beach. If the US can get off the beach quickly it can do very well but if your unlucky and get hung up on the beach for too long then Japan has this in the bag. So pray you get lucky rolls against your opponent. It can go either way depending on the crucial opening turns.
