Operation Iceberg - CO / XO recruitment
« on: June 20, 2003, 12:02:20 PM »
Do you have what it takes to CO an AH Scenario ?

Have you ever wanted to take control of 100's of planes and men and plot their Destiny ?

Now is your chance to step up see what you are made of and lead your side to VICTORY !

The next AH Scenario is "Operation Iceberg". This late war pacific scenario will feature some little used aircraft in scenarios to date as well as the jet driven kamikaze baka bombs of the IJA.

Historical Info

Operation Iceberg
 
On 3 October 1944 American forces in the Pacific Ocean Areas received a directive to seize positions in the Ryukyu Islands (Nansei Shoto). Okinawa is the most important island of the Ryukyu Group, the threshold of the four main islands of Japan. The decision to invade the Ryukyus signalized the readiness of the United States to penetrate the inner ring of Japanese defenses. For the enemy, failure on Okinawa meant that he must prepare to resist an early invasion of the homeland or surrender.
 
The Strategic Decision
 
Operation ICEBERG, as the plan for the Okinawa campaign was officially called, marked the entrance of the United States upon an advanced stage in the long execution of its strategy in the Pacific. Some 4,000 miles of ocean, and more than three years of war, separated Okinawa from Pearl Harbor. In 1942 and 1943 the Americans had contained the enemy and thrown him back; in 1944 their attack gathered momentum, and a series of fierce island campaigns carried them toward the Japanese inner stronghold in great strides.

The Japanese (170 pilots)
Each Okinawa Based Group would have use of NIK2, D3A1 Val, Ostwind (simulates Japanese 47mm guns), M16s/M8s/M3s
Each Japan Based Groups would have use of N1K2, Ki-61, Ki-67 and M16s/M8s/M3s (Okinawa Based)

This scenario is scheduled for August (we generally have one every 3 months) and yes, it will be using the Okinawa terrain.  :)
