Article about China vs Japan and US, played out using Command

Post by Temple »

Another interesting article from the War Is Boring website, If China’s Airspace Grab Turns Violent, This Is What Could Happen. The hypothetical situation is played out using Command.

Great write up!

Though I doubt the F-22 would hit up their radars IRL (espeically with that first volley of shots, perhaps if all those had missed and they were dark, they would switch to on).

No reason for the Raptors to light up the Chinese. They would just fire based on the data link from the fleeing radar plane. The Chinese would probably realize something was out there when the missiles were fired.

A very interesting usage of the game.

I never thought that doing an AAR would be so time consuming and difficult.

Thanks!

Unfortunately, I didn't think about this earlier in the game. Afterward I realized, oh, yeah, Link 16. Damn.

All six AMRAAMs from a single F-22 lost lock at once. I'd gotten a message about three seconds before that F-22s had detargeted the Chinese. I believe this has happened to me before in Command and I'm not sure what's going on.

I think it is only a matter of time before we see Wolf Blitzer using CMANO to play out some world crisis on CNN.

Must make you guys feel some pride that others are using the game to see how things, that are going on in the news right now would play out.

There are to many variables to ever know how things will play out. Would anybody have projected the USN to win big at Midway? New technology is sexy, but it can fail or just doesn't do what it was supposed to do.
