Armored Samurai PTO (id:#60684)
(BFP3: Blood and Jungle ID:BFP-26)
Designer: Chas Smith
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
General Ting Chao had never approved of the puppet government set up in Kirin Province by the Kwantung Army under the nominal leadership of General Xi Qia of the Kirin Army . In November 1932, with Colonel Feng Zhanhai, he organized the “Jilin Provincial Anti-Japanese Government” to coordinate military resistance. Military and civil authorities in the province fractured into "New Kirin" adherents of the Xi Qia regime and loyalist "Old Kirin" elements in opposition to it; the former predominated near the capital and the latter predominating in Harbin and the rugged hinterland to the north and east. In order to justify the direct intervention of the Kwantung Army to assist General Xi Qia, the Japanese engineered a riot in Harbin. During the uprising, one Japanese and three Korean subjects of Japan were killed. From Tsitsihar the newly arrived Japanese 4th Mixed Brigade moved in from the east. For seven days Japanese columns struggled over the frozen countryside in temperatures of 30° below zero. Finally they closed in on the city from the west and south on February 4. Thus began a 17-hour battle, which Harbin's inhabitants watched from their rooftops.

2016-11-22(A) Bill Brodie vs Steven Bond Japanese winTough game with lots of options. Chinese have to use the guns and HMGs well.
2010-03-12(A) Edward Fritz vs Mika Harviala Chinese winI didn't get a good feel for this scenario because my opponent's dice were hot. One of his HMGs cost me four squads, two trucks, and two leaders in one MPh/DFPh. With that much of a setback it was hard to recover (and I lost on the CVP cap). I still think it could be a good scenario, especially since most of the oddities of playing the Japanese are removed by SSR (no PTO terrain, no Banzai, etc.). I think it would make a great intro into the PTO for folks interested in playing PTO but don't want to burden themselves with a ton of PTO rules.
