Armored Samurai PTO (id:#60684)
(BFP 3: Blood and Jungle ID:BFP-26)
Designer: Chas Smith
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
Tension between China and Japan over Manchuria was increasing. The deteriorating situation prompted the Japanese to order Chinese puppet forces under their control to move on Harbin, but these forces were defeated. Simultaneously, Japanese forces attacked from the south and conquered hundreds of miles of territory and destroyed several Chinese formations en route to Harbin. General Chao, along with others, formed the Jilin Defense Army in order to prevent the fall of the city. They asked for civilian volunteers, who came out in strength to add to the number of regulars, and the Jilin Defense Army soon totaled over 30,000. This army represented the last significant Chinese force remaining in Manchuria. Meanwhile, the Japanese 2nd Division with attached armor was ordered to rescue the Chinese puppet forces and attack Harbin.

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.
