New beta for testing...this one involves a small battle between Mexico and Guatemala.

As always, please let me know what you think. Any suggestions from improving the scenario are welcome.

Thanks!

Thanks for this - it was a nice bit of fun on a Saturday afternoon!

Managed to reach a major victory but lost almost all my ground forces due to not launching the PC-7s in a timely manner.

I did feel there wasn't enough of a surface threat. However, I just did some cursory reading and it seems that the Guatemalan Navy really does just have 20mm cannons, so I guess it's realistic. Might it be possible to add one or two boats and have them rush in at flank speed in a tighter group? Currently they approach in a somewhat piecemeal way and I didn't have to divert too much firepower away from the land bombardment.

The only other thing I think might be wise is to add AAA to the invading forces. It seemed a little unbalanced to be able to bomb and strafe them with impunity.

Thanks for a fun scenario!

Uploaded version 2 just now.

I gave Guatemala a bunch of towed AAA. (I tried to make it as close to what they have as I could. The M-55 isn't actually in the database, so I basically edited a group of four trucks down to one truck and 3 single 20mm cannons, since it is a three-barrel weapon).

As always, any feedback is welcome. Anything else I can do to improve the scenario? Any errors in the briefing, the missions, the events, etc.?

Thanks.

Gave this a couple run throughs. Great little scenario.

I think that the ground attack is a tad too powerful, was not able to stop it either time and that was with the combined fire of all my ships, ground units and AC. Came close the 2nd time but there was not much left and there were still 8 tanks and about 20 light vehicles heading in. The Naval gunfire was slowly picking off the light vehicles but could not touch the tanks and the PC-7s were strafing the light infantry because I had already lost two to gunfire in the main pack.

Perhaps another platoon of ERC-90s or some Milan. The Infantry are fairly useless, I pulled them out and set up a defensive but they were seen before they got a shot off and that was the end of them.

Some nail biting moments, good fun.

Just uploaded version 3. Tweaked the Guatemalan forces, as per Gunner98's comments, and gave Mexico one more platoon of APCs.

As always, please let me know what you think. Is this ready for the Community Scenario Pack or are there other changes, fixes, etc. needed? Thanks!
