From: Jacksonville, FL, USA
In July, 2019 (real World not scenario) the PRC launched several missiles from Hainan Island to north of the Spratlys. These may have been the DF-26 missile but my guess is most likely DF-21Ds. Either way it is a game (scenario) changer!!!!!!!!! Also a Missile base is nearing completion on the island (possibly for DF-31 missiles) but would be shocked if DF-21D were not deployed there as well (It just makes sense and the PLA(AF)/PLA(N) planners are anything but stupid). I actually thought of placing a DF-21D unit there in the original design but could find no evidence one was in place, now it looks like it is happening.
Tweaks (for now)...
1. Added DF-21D and HQ-9 missiles to Hainan Island
2. Re-introduced the USS Ohio, smart USN player will use her to take out Hanian DF-21Ds (or try to anyway!
3. Moved CSG-9 southward to near Singapore.
1. Add DF-26 "Guam Killer" missiles and THAAD/Aegis cruisers near Guam
2. More B-2s
The problem with those two is now to be realistic ADA and AF units (not all but some) near the DF-26 sites in the PRC should also be added and now it gets out of control!
This now should be MUCH tougher for the U.S. player, and probably more realistic to the real world situation (as much as we possibly can from open sources and limited unit).

I was Navy, but Assigned TAD to the 24th MAU Hq in Beirut. By far the finest period of my service!
