I think the author should at least learn some up to date information about PLAN before he made the scenario. If so，he should have known that the “Low” in the mix of high/low capability will be 054As which already have 30 in service，not the 053H3s which are much fewer in quantity and will probably all get retired in the middle of 2020s.
I suggest he check the newest PLAN CSG spy images from the JSDF Joint Staff website.
That is not really a fair point. Depending on the time period, nations/units involved and availability of unclassified information a campaign’s (or scenario’s) author will have a less than perfect knowledge of real world military assets.
I believe that in every campaign produced to date the authors have had to make judgement calls and estimates of the unit types and numbers to be included. One forum member attempted to make a scenario (not the DLC campaign) of the Desert Storm conflict and wanted to include every unit involved. Under CMANO the scenario was 7-8Mb in size. In CMO it would easily be 3-4 times larger and while close (perhaps) to being technically accurate it was pretty much unplayable. Still, it was a remarkably detailed effort.
Specifically, in the Desert Storm DLC tradeoffs were made by having a representational number of appropriate units assigned.
So, no campaign or scenario is going to be perfect but for the CMO simulation I think this one has done an excellent job.
