3. Changes for "Operation Iraqi Freedom"
The Allied OOB is drastically modified from "Operation Final Justice" to reflect the units current headed for the Gulf with a few guesses on my part. PLEASE NOTE: This is an ongoing operation and I am trying to hit a moving target! Some smaller units have been consolidated into larger units (24th MAU was placed into the 1st Marine Regt for example). Other units were broken from their parent unit (Marine LARs for example). If I missed your favorite company or Battalion sized unit, I'm sorry please understand. If I missed a large unit I would like to hear from you.
The chances of Iranian intervention are very low.
Iraqi ADA and Airbase Security units have been added.
If Iraq destroys Israeli civilian units they gain 20 VP's per unit destroyed. An Israeli fighter unit is deployed for each Israeli Civilian unit destroyed. There is a 10 percent chance that Israel will nuke Baghdad for each Israeli Civilian unit eliminated.
As Allied units approach Baghdad there is a very slight chance Saddam will initiate a nuclear attack along the Allied approach. (I am assuming the Iraqis hid the device along a likely avenue of advance and detonated it when best suited. I doubt Iraq has any type of delivery system.)
If Saddam uses nuclear devices American Nukes are released.
Iraq always uses Chemical weapons.
A word on Allied nukes if you get them don't. The Iraqis may earn 250 VP's if you do, and the contanimation hinders you more than the Iraqi.
Allied loss Intolerance is set to 500, take your time and rotate units to reduce losses.
