Sakura Blue, 2018 - Beta Release

Post by Rory Noonan »

[center]Image[/center]

Date: 21 November 2018
Location: East China Sea
Playable Sides: Japan, Taiwan
Duration: 8 days

Hypothetical

Sakura Blue 2018 is a fictional joint forces exercise held between regional allies Taiwan (Republic of China) and Japan.

The exercise is intended to allow Japanese forces to practice defence against an incursion into their territory while providing an opportunity to allow Taiwanese forces to practice holding territory against an amphibious invasion.

The scenario is playable from either side. Will you be able to hold the islands of Yonaguni, Taketomi, Ishigaki, Tarama and Miyakojima as the Republic of China? Or will you reclaim your territory commanding the Japanese Self Defence Forces?...

With thanks to SakiNoE for assistance with scenario development

Excellent news. I have half-ready Japan scenario and several others half-ready. Maybe we get to see new Kuril bases? Japanese carriers? Cool stuff.

I'm thinking something to do with reflections. That F-15 is intriguing though...

GOT IT!

Sakura as symbol of kamikazes.

We will see a Special Attack Unit made of F-15?

Hi Apache

Great. It seems that in the gameplay notes the sections were moved to wrong positions somethimes (PDF) and are assigned on the wrong headers...

Otherwise very interesting. Also the report on the deployed munitions are great! I wish every bigger scenario has this!! In the past i made an excel file and copied it over from every base manually and the formated it with formulas :-)

So is this generic LUA i can use on other scenarios also?

Yep there's nothing special about it, it's made with the Steam version of CMANO.

Thanks for the pick up on the notes, I'll fix that [:)]

Edit: Fixed! The pdf has been updated in the post above
