Default Re: Cross Link Scenarios: Timeline/Core army evolu

I imagine that the 1st mission the core group will "play", will be a security mission along highway 19 or a search and destroy mission, and the big battle of the first ToO will be the Ia Drang fierce fight... is this right?

Steming the NVA: The Ia Drang valley Campaign Sep-Dec. 1965 (ToO#1)

Chapter 1, A New Home: the 1st Cav arrives at An Khe
Here we can have some shake down operations to get the player accustomed to his units, for example:
Op. Op.Good Friend II/Sayonara (joint Army/USMC/ROK road security along Route 19 from Qui Nonh to Binh Khe)
Op.Happy Valley I & II (pacification in Vinh Thanh Valley)
Op.Lonesome End (security of the famous Mang Yang Pass)

Chapter 2, Plei Me under Siege: Send in the First Team
Here the serious business begins, the Cav must relieve a besieged SF camp and pursue the retreating NVAs:
Op. All the Way with a battle for an NVA field Hospital, an ambush near cambodian border, an battle for a hot LZ etc...

Chapter 3, Cavalry Pursuit: Breaking the NVA
Here are the famous battles of the campaign with terrible fightings for LZ X-Ray, Albany and Columbus.

That's my idea too, progresively raise the tempo of the operations and the intensity of the fightings. We should be carefull with the battles of X-Ray or Albany though, it could really cripple the core force if not balanced properly.

Yep! If the battle at LZ X-Ray is to be taken into consideration, maybe will be better if our core force will be landing in the second day of the Ia Drang valley battle, and used to scout the rear that was less involved in the battle, after all this is still the beginning of the campaign.... but this is only my opinion...

I like this idea. IMHO its better for us to avoid trying to replicate a very well know action. We should stick to the the goings on in the fringes of these major engagements. This will prevent the grognards from crying about how un-historical or inaccurate a partcicular scenario is.
