v3 Variant of The Rising Sun (original map created by Sieg)
Game is continuously played by PBEM.
Gamers state, that it is one of the best games listed at the depot.
a.) MAP CONTENT
The Rising Sun Variant vXXX includes 1 mod of The Rising Sun
- The Rising Sun - vXXX ... (with Japan as 3 parties Yamamoto, Hisaichi, Masaharu)
b.) RULE SET
The Rising Sun - vXXX mod uses a combined v2 + v3 rule set.
Version rule set in general
- Subs can sneak attack. That means they can pass an enemy occupied sea zone and attack the next (an enemy destroyer prevents/blocks a sneak attack).
Specific Version 2 rule set
- Submarines can submerge after first attacker/defender roll dice. Thus an attacking fighter still has the chance of hitting a sub before it is able to submerge. Enemy destroyers stop subs from submerging.
Specific Version 3 rule set
Sea transports do not defend. Neither can they be selected as casualties. They are just lost if enemy wins the sea zone. For example a bomber can defeat an infinite amount of unguarded transports.
Submarines can submerge before any roll. So an attacking fighter has no chance of hitting a submarine, unless a destroyer prevents it from submerging.
ListenpunktBombers during strategic bombing do not destroy enemy PUs, but do damage structures. Enemy will have to spend PU to repair structures.
Please find detailed information regarding rules & specific unit capabilites in the relevant notes tab inside the game.

d.) HINTS & TIPS
Due to a wide range of possibilities this mod is more suitable for experienced players (typical rounds 30).
Specially the supply strategy is crucial in this mod regarding air+sea+land transport units.
The combination of all possible features enables almost a real handling of warfare.
The fuel mod opens a totally new strategy setup. Big unit groups require a huge fuel amount. Therefore use your fuel wisely.
