Order of Battle Pacific: US Marines – AAR, Scenario 1 Part 1

Airboy gives us an extended AAR for his adventures across the Pacific ~

Avery Abernethy, 27 August 2016

This is an AAR of Order of Battle Pacific: US Marines on Captain level difficulty. Our first scenario is taking Tanambogho and Tulagi. I picked a large proportion of my core force in the first scenario over three attack waves.

Campaign Start

Campaign Start

I chose Marine infantry without transport to save command and supply points. US Infantry has slightly more firepower but must land in a port to avoid heavy disorganization penalties. Heavy terrain also makes it difficult for tracked or wheeled vehicles to move quickly off-road. The difficulty of spotting Japanese units makes fast travel over unsecured ground a recipe for disaster.

Supply is critical! If you get cut off from supply or if you do too much without rest your unit will become very weak.

 

More coming soon – this series will be running for a while.
