Future Weapons Systems: Piranha Unmanned Surface Vessel


Over the last several decades the navies of various powers have explored the feasibility
of fast and maneuverable unmanned surface vehicles (USV) to conduct a range of operations. Aside from not subjecting crew to the risks of combat, USV also are cheaper to operate. The first such vehicle was the remote-controlled OWL MK II, which became operational
in 1985. Today, advances in materials and other technologies have increased the efficiency
of such craft as well as giving them stealth characteristics. The objective is to have USV
that can remain on station for weeks, relying on autonomous navigation and path planning
systems.
Current USV designs average between five and 10 meters in length, but the US-based
Zyvex Technologies has developed a much larger variety 16.3 m (538) long/ 3.2 m
(117) beam/.6 m (2) draft known as the Piranha. Its the first such vessel to incorporate
nanotechnology composite materials. Those materials are designed at the molecular scale
(one-billionth of a meter), allowing the boat to weigh a modest 3,629 kg. (8,000 lbs.), some
75 percent less than its similar-sized aluminum and fiberglass peers. It uses electrically and
thermally conducive carbon nanotubes for its hull, deck and superstructure, producing the
strongest known tensile-strength material.
Where a standard aluminum or fiberglass boat would have consumed 50 gallons of
fuel or more per hour at cruise speed, the diesel-powered Piranha uses only 12 gallons for
a sustained 25 knots over the same period. Fuel capacity is 1,400 gallons, giving the USV
considerable range for a small craft. Maximum speed is 45 knots.
Since fuel is one of the US Navys most expensive outlays, the potential cumulative cost
savings of using large numbers of USV is considerable. It also means the concept is viable
for commercial applications. At its 25-knot cruising speed, it could travel 2,800 nautical
miles without refueling, and operate in open-ocean conditions up to very rough Sea State
6, which is charactrized by waves between four and six feet but that occaisionally exceed 12
feet.

The Piranha has quiet batteries, and a payload capacity of 6,804 kg. (15,000 lbs.), making
it ideal for such missions as: unmanned long-range ISR (intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance), electronic warfare, troop transport, mine countermeasures, search and rescue, submarine hunting, special

operations sup port, harbor patrol and humanitarian relief missions. They can be fitted with
turret-mounted cameras to provide imaging capability with high performance haze penetration and infrared color/electron-multiplied sensors.
The air-transportable Piranha has been rolled-out in a remotely piloted variant, to be
followed by a fully autonomous model capable of obstacle avoidance. Other planned variants include an 11-meter hull compatible with the US Navys Littoral Combat Ships, and an
18-foot man-portable version for riverine operations. Armament can include weapons such
as stabilized .50-caliber machineguns and anti-submarine depth charges.
As the Piranha is still hampered by limited situational awareness capabilities, it isnt yet
suited for operations requiring rapid autonomous decision making. Nevertheless, given the
designs adaptability and potential for upgrading, its feasible USV could eventually operate
in such complex mission configurations as remotely coordinated or autonomous packs using
over-the-horizon anti-ship missiles in surface warfare.

A Piranha technology demonstrator (prototype) has recently completed a six-month,


600-mile sea-trial program in Puget Sound in Washington state. As a next step in the programs overall development, several boats are to be allocated to the Republic of Singapore
Navy for evaluation.

Dear F ellow Wargamers:


Were excited to announce the launch of Modern War magazine (see copy of Press Release above). Several of the early issues now have
a Ripped from the headlines feel with world events being what they are. Do take a look at the upcoming issues on page 5 and take
advantage of the extra discounts we offer for subscribing to two or all three of the game editions.
Were also pleased to announce Wacht am Rhein (2012 edition) and Hurtgen: Hells Forest are shipping to pledge customers and are
now available for direct shipping. These games utilize the GOSS (Grand Operational Support System) rules; so once youve learned the
GOSS rules with one game, youll be able to play both games as well as future games in this series (we are planning to release Atlantic
Wall in 2013 and there are more on the pledge list). Also, take this opportunity to review the new proposals in the pledge program and
go online to place your pledge pre-orders.
Our Spring Cleaning Sale has stepped up to high gear with discounts of up to 50 percent; so check the listings on pages 14-17. Weve got
plenty of current and classic games from many, many companies (both wargames and strategy games).
Still to come in 2012: another crop of folio games including some new series games. Theres 17 in all: Acre and Arsuf feature our new
Battles of the Medieval World rules. Pea Ridge and Pedragal feature an update of the Musket & Saber rules. Breitenfield and Pavia
feature the new Pike & Shot rules (a variant of Musket & Saber). Lebanon 82 utilizes the Fire & Movement rules. Loos 1915 features
the new World War I rules. Salem Church is a new mini-game (40 counters and a 11x17 inch map) with a Quick Play version of he

Also expected out this summer is the final volume of SPWs Der Weltkrieg series: Duration: the Grand Campaign. Along with the final
volume, all of the out of print volumes are being printed so the entire series will be available again. Place a pledge order for Duration
and youll be contacted about filling in any of the other titles you may have missed.
By the end of 2012, we anticipate the next group of Excalibre games: Decision in France, Flight of the Goeben, Ancient Conquest
2, Alexander Conquest 2, Alexander at Tyre, Raiders & Traders, and Barbarian, Kingdom and Empire. These are listed in the
Next 12 months category. Other Excalibre future titles are listed at the end of the pledge listing.
Finally, I want to mention that we are offering a new shipping program with flat rate shipping costs. Order as much as you want and
have it shipped for one reasonable price. I know our Canadian and Overseas customers will appreciate this the most with the steadily
rising shipping costs.
Thanks again for your support,

Doc

Acre
In the summer of 1189, the army of the nascent Third
Crusade had lain siege to the Muslim-held fortress of Acre
on the Levantine coast. Saladin deployed his lightly-armed,
highly-mobile field army to break the siege. In a swirling
clash of cavalry and archers on 4 October, Saladin was
repulsed by the heavily-armed Crusaders.
Arsuf
In the summer of 1191, Richard Lionhearts Crusader
army marched down the Levantine coast in a tight battle
formation to preclude an attack by the shadowing Muslim
army of Saladin. Near Arsuf on 7 September, Saladin finally
attacked. Repeated Muslim assaults could gain no traction,
and Sladins host finally was dispersed by a massed attack of
Crusader knights.
Breitenfeld
One of the largest battles of its time, Breitenfeld was fought
on 17 September 1631, near the mid-point of the Thirty
Years War. It was a clash of styles as well as armies, the
flexible, open formation of Gustavus Adolphus Swedes
facing the massive pike blocks of the Imperial tercios. The
new order won the day as the nimble Swedes isolated, then
destroyed each tercio.
Pavia
Pavia, fought on 24 February 1525, near the birth of the
pike-and-shot period of warfare, was the deciding clash
in the long contest for Italy between Valois France and
Habsburg Spain. Fought in the jumbled terrain of a hunting
preserve, the French reliance on heavy cavalry bested by the
firepower of Spains loose musketeer formations.

Breitenfeld

Pea Ridge
In early 1862, aggressive-but-careless Earl Van Dorn led
a polyglot Confederate army on night march across Pea
Ridge to get around a smaller Union army under Sam Curtis.
Surprised, Curtis nevertheless managed to form defensive
lines that held - just - the Confederate attacks.

LOOS

Pedregal
Deep inside Mexico, Winfield Scotts US Army was poised
to strike at Mexico City in the summer of 1847. Brought up
short by Mexican lines on either side of the massive lava
bed of the Pedregal, Scott had to find a way through the
larger Mexican army while still protecting his vital supply
base.

In the fall of 1915 on the stalemated Western front, the

Classic Games.
The Westwall system is an operational (battalion/regiment) simulation of key battles on the frontier of the Reich in
1944-45. Each game covers a clash between the Germans
and the American or British armies that had pursued across
France to the barrier of the Westwall.
Hurtgen Forest covers the combat between US and German forces near the Belgian-German border in November
1944.
Arnhem covers all of September 1944s Operation
Market Garden. Three Allied airborne divisions were
dropped up to 60 miles behind German lines in an attempt
to establish a bridgehead over the lower Rhine at Arnhem.
Remagen covers the operations of 7 to 17 March 1945, which saw US forces cross the Rhine in force at that river
town. An optional scenario is provided to show what mightve happened had the Germans reacted more speedily to the
US crossing.
Siege of Bastogne covers the fighting that took place in December 1944 around that town in southern Belgium
during the Battle of the Bulge. The struggle was divided into two phases, and a scenario is provided covering both of
the phases as self-contained games. A full campaign scenario is also included that allows you to refight both phases as
a single continuous game. The first scenario, Spearhead, covers the period of 18 to 21 December. It presents the first
phase, when the spearhead of German Fifth Panzer Army first approached the vital road and communication center of
Bastogne. The second scenario, Relief of Bastogne, depicts the situation of 21 to 26 December, the period of Pattons
drive from the south to relieve the siege of Bastogne and open a supply line to its defenders.
Contents include: 4 maps 17x22 inches, 528 die cut counters, 7 player aid & set up charts, Copy of standard & exclusive,

BATTLE FOR STALINGRAD


In the autumn of 1942, 14 German divisions of the Sixth Army and Fourth
Panzer Army were poised to attack the vital city of Stalingrad. Facing the
German forces were dozens of divisions and brigades of the Soviet 62nd army.
For seven weeks the Germans would hammer at the city in a seesaw conflict
for control of the Volga River.
Battle for Stalingrad simulates the campaign that would halt the German drive to the east in the Soviet Union. The playing map represents the
terrain in and around Stalingrad, and the colorful cardboard playing pieces
reflect the sizes and strengths of the opposing military units.
Battle for Stalingrad is a classic game
design by noted game designer John Hill.
Game components include: two rules booklets
(Standard and Optional), 600 die cut counters,
one 22 x 34 inch map, and various player aids.

Decision Pledge Program


PLEDGE PROGRAM OVERVIEW
The Decision Games Pledge Program is an online advance
order system in which gamers may pledge their support for
future games thereby directing our efforts to the games customers
have the most interest in seeing published. Pledges are a commitment to purchase a game when published and payment information
is required in order to make pledges, however payment will not be
collected until a game starts collating in our warehouse.
As pledge support builds, well add more detailed descriptions,
sample artwork, and rules drafts to the web site. Pledge orders
will receive up to a 25% discount from the final retail price. We
will provide estimated pricing based on the latest information we
have about the game components and print pricing however the
final price is subject to change (largely due to the variable costs of
paper and shipping).
When a project goes to our printers, we send out an e-mail
indicating a project is close to completion. This is to confirm
payment methods and credit numbers and expiration dates in case
customers need to make last minute adjustments. It is critical to
the pledge program that customers respond immediately to this
notification (our final boarding call). Credit cards are not charged
and checks not deposited until a project is in our warehouse being
collated and prepared for shipping.
The Decision Games Pledge Program has published many
games. For your convenience, we are listing the projects already
in the works for the next year in the first section of the pledge list.
Beyond the next year, there is no specific timeframe for publication
as each game varies significantly in size and complexity, and the
availability of outside part-time developers to work on some titles
means a longer timeframe. We generally expect to publish two
to four games each year with the priority given to the games with
the most pledges. We may publish a game from further down the
rankings when we need a good fit to optimize component gang
printing.
The pledge games are divided into the same eras we use for
Strategy & Tactics and World at War games. Many of the proposed
games have longer descriptions or a complete web page with
sample artwork. Games that earn sufficient support work their way
up the rankings until they are in the top 10 and begin the process of
design, development, artwork, and printing. Game proposals that
are not making sufficient progress are dropped to make way for
new game proposals.
To pledge your support use our new online system to select
the game proposals you wish to pledge by visiting the pledge area
of the Decision Games store web site. Once you have placed your
order (pledge/pending status) you can check your list, make
changes or updates to your list or customer information. YOur
credit card is not charged at the time of placing the pledge.

PLEDGE PROGRAM UPDATE


(15 Mar 12)
There are a lot of games and projects releasing in 2012 and all of
these projects are at the top of the pledge list to make them easy
to find. Pledging will end once individual games are ready to start
shipping so make sure you go to the DG web site and set up your
new pledge account and enter your updated list.
Several new proposals have been added for future projects these
are identified by the NEW! label next to their titles. A few
projects have been dropped due to lack of interest. The publication
schedule for pledge projects is listed below:

GAMES, BOOKS & KITS TO BE


PUBLISHED IN THE NEXT 12 MONTHS
1. Duration: the Grand Campaign (SPW) covers the strategic
and production aspects of WWI and completes the Weltkrieg
series. Dave Schroeder. Est retail: $80. (Est. Pledge $60).
2. Devils Due: Hitlers Strategic Decisions in WW2 uses
new data made available since the end of the Cold War, as well as
the analytical techniques developed in wargaming. For example,
a close study of the Stalingrad campaign reveals that Axis forces
actually outnumbered Soviet, and it was superior Red Army
operational art that won. The book also provides some interesting
speculation on how the Germans could have gained a victory in
1943 had they concentrated against the Western Allies instead
of the East. There are also some new looks at Hitler as military
commander, Allied grand strategy, and the impact of secret
weapons. Joseph Miranda. Est. retail: $35 (Est. Pledge $28).
3. Atlantic Wall (SPI). The new Wacht am Rhein system will
be applied to the update of this game. The original game is also
being expanded to include Operations Cobra and Goodwind as
well as several smaller scenarios (some use only one map and are
ideal for those who want a smaller, shorter game or a place to get
introduced to the system). Seven maps, 16 counter sheets. Joe
Youst. Est. Retail: $240 (Est. Pledge $180).
4. Alamo to Appomattox. A2A is a grand strategy game of the
American Civil War in the style of Krieg! Maps of the Eastern and
Western Theaters include terrain, strategic objectives, roads/
rail, naval zones, navigable and non-navigable rivers, cities and
locales, supply centers and other features affecting the game.

Dispatch #22

Counters represent the corps and armies of the war. Cards provide
the strategic-political-economic direction for each side. Strategies
are many and varied but the ultimate goal is to demoralize the
opposing factions population through military, economic and
political victories while sustaining your own populations will to
continue the fight. The players each choose a Strategy Card and
an Addendum Card before each new season and may opt to play
an additional card as a diplomatic response to certain events.
These cards lead to new military units, leaders, and replacement
steps and result in socio-economic and political events. The events
include the declaration of Emancipation, the elections of 1862 and
1864, and the possible intervention by European nations. Events
are often double-edged swords, sometimes providing a military
advantage while negatively affecting the popular will to fight. In
addition, both sides may attempt to develop and manufacture new
technologies, both historical and speculative, such as ironclads,
submarines, torpedoes, observation balloons, repeating rifles
and Gatling guns. Both sides can introduce espionage and even
sabotage, which can have many unexpected consequences,
including assassination. Scenarios are included for each year as
well as the entire ACW.
Beyond the ACW proper, there are two introductory scenarios:
Alamo, a mini-game of the War for Texas and Manifest Destiny,
a Mexican-American War mini-game. These short campaigns will
give new players an excellent place to start playing and veteran
players will have two scenarios that can be finished in an evening.
In addition there is Crisis & Compromise, a card play oriented
game of the period from the end of the Mexican-American War to
the start of the Civil War. Though little combat occurs, the card
play covers the actions inspiring events, leaders and regional
positions (Border States) that affect the allegiance of states to a
region and the ability of military leaders at the start of the Civil
War. Crisis & Compromise can be played alone or used to create
alternative starting situations in 1853, 1857, and 1865 for the
ACW. Three maps, 560 small counters, 200 cards. Barry Altshuler.
Est. Retail: $160 (Est. Pledge $120).
5. Axis Empires Expansion Kit. AE/EK includes more cards,
counters, and scenarios about TK and DS. Includes the Seekrieg
naval units. Small maps, 280 counters, 100 cards, 48-page booklet.
Thomas Prowell/Alan Emrich. Est. Retail: $40 (Est. Pledge $30).
6. D-Day at Tarawa. Based on John Butterfields CSR Awardwinning D-Day at Omaha Beach system, this solitaire game
presents the critical days of fighting at platoon and company scale.
Command the invading American forces against dug-in Japanese
defenders controlled by the game system. Tarawa covers the
landings on Betio Island in November 1943, and the operations of
the US 2nd Marine and 27th Infantry divisions to clear the Island
the first heavily contested landing of the Pacific War. The battle
for this tiny Island raged for four days and when it was finally over,
less than 200 of the 5000 Japanese defenders remained alive.
One map, two counter sheets, and 55 cards. John Butterfield. Est.
Retail $60 (Est. Pledge $45).
7. D-Day at Peleliu. Peleliu focuses on the landings by the US
1st Marine Division in September 1944, and their bitter two-day
struggle to capture the airfield on the southern end of the island. A
longer campaign scenario allows the player to extend the action
to the rugged terrain of Bloody Nose Ridge. Opposed by the
reinforced Japanese 14th Infantry Division, the battle resulted in
the highest US casualty rate of any in the Pacific war. Like D-Day at
Omaha Beach, both new games feature landing hazards, variable
enemy positions and fields of fire encoded into the game maps,
US weapon types vs Japanese defensive preparations, and a
random event-driven narrative. Plus new features unique to the
Pacific Theater such as US naval and aerial bombardment, flame
throwers, off-shore reefs and defensive positions, Japanese tank
attacks, tunnel network movement and Banzai charges. One map,

8. Free Mars (SPI). From the colonies of Mars to the orbital
stations of Earth and to the outposts near Jupiter, the cry is heard.
Free Mars! is a science fiction wargame of revolt across the
Solar System in the late 21st century. Earths colonies are rising
up against an oppressive Terran Federation. The system is based
on SPIs Battlefleet Mars, but with additional forces and units
representing several types of spaceships, ground units and special
forces. Special weapons include artificial intelligence missiles,
cybernetic attacks and enhancement of human warriors via
nano-technology. Cards representing the various military-politicaleconomic groups that are maneuvering for power are included. The
map shows the Solar System out to Jupiter, with displays for each
planet. Joseph Miranda. Est. retail $80 (Est. Pledge $60).
9. The Heoric Age of Greece: Raiders & Traders. A beautiful
game of Heroic Greece that combines war with economics, godly
intervention, oracles and dynastic diplomacy. Sacrificing to the
gods or consulting the Oracle can help or hinder you in war or
trade. Your nation has a ruling dynasty, and if you have daughters
and sons to marry, the more power to you. One can even mount
a raid on another player in order to kidnap his daughter! Combat
is simple. This is a graphics update only of the one map and two

ALL ERAS: NAVAL THROUGH THE AGES


ANCIENT
(note: Excalibre Games has moved to its own section at the end of
this list)

15. Eagles: Battles of the Roman Empire (NEW!) is a game


covering the battles of the Roman Empire from c. 100 BC to c. 600
AD at the tactical level. The game would use three different sized
units: rectangular for groups of Cohorts and other linear units;
large to represent barbarian hordes and other massed formations;
and small for leaders and specialized formations. The game map
would use large hexagons, and the positioning of units within the
hex would represent the formation. Thus, it will be possible to
graphically show the various number of lines of cohorts in a legion.
Units will represent all major troops types, such as legionaries,
auxiliaries, cavalry, elephants, barbarians, ballistae, cataphracts,
and so forth. Game scenarios will be constructed by using various
mixes of units. There will be at least 50 different scenarios,
reconstructed by the designer, to include the battles of Julius
Caesar, Agricola, Trajan, Marcus Aurelius, Claudius Gothicus,
Constantine, Julian, Stilicho and Belisarius among many others.
There will be special rules to show the tactics of each era. Thus,
Julius Caesars legions will operate differently from Julians field
armies. Leaders will provide command control, and army morale
will be important. The game will include two maps showing various
kinds of typical battlefields. The game will include historical notes
so players can develop their own scenarios. Joseph Miranda. Est.
retail: $80 (Est. pledge: $60).
16. Titans: Battles of the Greek Empire (NEW!) is a game
covering the battles of the Greek, Macedonian and Roman Republic
eras, 500 BC to 100BC, using a system similar to Eagles (above).
The game would use three different sized units: large to represent
barbarian hordes and other massed formations; rectangular for
linear formations; and small for leaders and specialized formations.
The game would include such great battles as Marathon, Arbela,
Cannae and Zama, as well as going into terra incognita with
Alexanders actions in central Asia. There would be specialized
units for the Macedonian Companions. Roman legions would have
their Hastati, Principes, and Triarii. Leaders would include greats
such as Alexander, Hannibal and Scipio, as well as not-so-greats.
Joseph Miranda. Est. retail: $80 (Est. pledge: $60).
17. Rome & the Barbarians is a grand strategic-level, Krieg!style game describing the era of Romes expansion and later
decline across Europe and Africa, from 300 BCE to 500 CE. The
game centers on the Roman wars with the Barbarian Tribes and
Civilized Nations from the time of Romes first consolidation of the
Italian peninsula, through its expansion as a Republic and later as
an Empire, to the Fall of Rome at the hands of the Barbarian tribes.
Multi-step legion and infantry units are built by adding together
basic infantry one-step units. Many special units exist including
cavalry, heavy cavalry, siege units, fortress (entrenched camps),
archers and naval units. A basic turn represents 25 years, but
periodic Leader Turns dominated by Great Leaders, compress turns
into fice year periods. Strategy Cards provide replacement steps,
units, leaders, markers and also political events. These may result
in conflict between Rome and other factions as well as unintended
political, economic and social events, including the possibility
of Roman Civil War. Romes ability to create a road network
determines both unit supply and movement. The success of Romes
control of the map, compared with the Barbarian players ability
to challenge that expansion determines the games winner. Maps
cover Europe from Britain to the Northern coast of Africa and from
Spain to Parthia (Persia). Pieces represent the Great Leaders,
infantry, legions, and cavalry of the era, as well as an assortment
of markers and Strategy Cards. Two maps, two counter sheets,
one deck of 110 cards. Barry Altshuler. Est. Retail: $120 (Est.
Pledge $90).
18. Imperium: the Wars of the Roman Empire (NEW!). This
will cover the campaigns of the early Roman Empire, from the
reign of Augustus through Marcus Aurelius, on the operational
scale. One player commands the Romans, the other the Barbarians.

Game play would be driven by cards which will generate command


control for each side as well as special events. The Romans will
generally have an advantage here, but their foes can spring a
Teutorburg style surprise which can unhinge the entire Empire.
The game would be played in scenarios, each representing a
major war or invasion. Units will be legions, groups of auxiliaries,
barbarian hordes, siege trains, fleets, and others. Legions can be
broken down into vexillations (task forces). All major leaders will
be included, as well as generic minor commanders. The map will
stretch from Britain to Persia. Scenarios will be of varying size:
mini-games (such as Agricolas campaign in Britannia); major wars
(Trajan versus the Parthians); and continent wide conflagrations
(Marcus Aurelius versus everyone). Two maps, two sheets of
counters, one deck of cards. Joseph Miranda. Est. retail: $80 (Est.
pledge: $60).

GUNPOWDER & AMERICANA


19. Nelsons Victory: The Royal Navy at War, 1793-1805.
The Anglo-French naval struggle combining elements of SPIs CA,
TAHGCs War at Sea and XTRs Red Sky Morning. The map will
cover from the Caribbean to the eastern Mediterranean. Combat
will use an evolution of WaSs and CAs simple systems, with
modifications to account for the tactics of the age of sail. Annual
game turns are driven by RSMs system of impulses that shift
unpredictably from player to player, depicting the uncertainties of
the eras naval warfare. Three large-size counter sheets (528) will
depict the ships-of-the-line (64 guns and up) of 11 navies, plus a
sheet of markers. (Est. retail: $64; est. pledge: $48).
20. Wellingtons Victory (NEW!/SPI Update). An update of the
SPI classic grand tactical simulation of Waterloo. This will retain
the feel of the originalthe fragility of dense units in the open,
the efficacy of different arms and formations at different times
while addressing some of the shortcomings of the original. Gone
is the asymmetric turn sequence that hampered the Prussians and
gave cavalry near-immunity from artillery: in its place, a simplified
sequence that retains the continual interplay between sides. Gone
too are the step reduction markers; units will be presented on
several counters so losses can reflect diminution of both numbers
and morale. Large unitssuch as the Nassauers, Prussians,
British Guards, and most cavalry regimentswill have two or
more counters in play. Formations for infantry, cavalry, and artillery
will be handled with markers and will reflect doctrinal differences
between the armies. Skirmishers will be tamed, providing neither
the spearhead of the offensive nor the bulwark of the defense.
Entirely new rules provide for hidden movement and optional
reinforcements for both sides. For details [and progress reports],
go to the S&T Press Forum topic for Wellingtons Victory. Four
maps, eight counter sheets. Chris Perello. Est. retail $200 (Est.
Pledge $150).

ALL ERAS NAVAL GAME

WORLD WAR II GLOBAL & THEATERWIDE


23. World War at Sea (NEW!). The German Navy construction
plan (Plan Z) and the Japanese accelerated naval production In
violation of the Washington Treaty (plus the Italian Navy) would
have made the Axis the most powerful navies in the world had
World War II not started in 1939. But the powerful Yamato class and Bismarck class task

forces built by the Japanese and Germans would not have gone
unchallenged by the Allies. The US Montana class battleships and
Essex carriers plus Great Britainss Vanguard class battleships and
Centaur carriers would have set the stage for the greatest naval
clash ever seen. The outcome of World War II would have been
determined on the vast oceans of the world. World War at Sea
uses a variant of the classic War at Sea system to simulate the
global struggle for naval dominance. Two maps, six counter sheets.
Gary Wietstruck. Est. Retail $80 (Est. Pledge $60).

a card for Market-Garden which can be traded off for another
card giving logistical support to Pattons drive to the Rhine. The
Germans will have cards which, when used individually, will
give them reinforcements, or when combined can be used to
launch an Ardennes Offensive. Game units will be divisional with

40. Panzerarmee Afrika: Decision in North Africa (NEW!).
This is the entire campaign in North Africa/Middle East,
1940-43. The game map will stretch from the Persian Gulf to
Casablanca. The game can be played in individual scenarios for
major operations (such as Rommels initial offensive or Operation
Crusader), or as one big campaign. The game will emphasize
simplicity. It will use a deck of cards to generate specific
operations, which will in turn give a player additional move-fight
impulses. Units will be divisions with brigade and regimental
breakdowns. Airpower will be represented at the operational
level, with air units flying specific missions. Also included will
be a potential invasion of Malta, optional reinforcements, proAxis coups in the Allied rear. Leaders will be a major factor, and
having the right commander at the right place can make a major
difference. The game will have a wide range of historical what-ifs:
for example, the Germans can commit the 7th Flieger (Airborne)
Division to taking Malta in 1941 instead of Crete. The British can
launch Operation Acrobat in early 1941 using the forces which
intervened in Greece to instead invade Tripolitania. There would
also be a what-if scenario based on Hitler giving North Africa a
higher priority for reinforcement and logistics, with a comparative
Allied response, including early US intervention. Panzerarmee
Afrika will give wargamers the opportunity to decide the fate of
North Africa. Two maps, two counter sheets, one deck of cards.
Joseph Miranda Est. Retail: $80 (Est. Pledge $60).

MODERN
41. Hand of Fate: The Vietnam War. Players choose campaign
cards to generate reinforcements and political events. The
cards would replace the complex political rules often required
to simulate the Vietnam conflict. Players can choose different
levels of escalation that will generate varying levels of forces,
at a trade-off in political support and military efficiency. The
Communist player could choose between low level terrorism,
mid-level guerrilla warfare, or a full scale Tet-style offensive. The
Allied player could choose to intervene with just US special forces,
or mobilize for an all-or-nothing invasion of Communist sanctuaries
in Laos and Cambodia. Game units will be brigades/regiments
and divisions/Viet Cong fronts, rated for their conventional and
unconventional capabilities. The map will cover all of Indochina. A
semi-abstract system will model air operations. Two maps, three
counter sheets, 220 cards. Joseph Miranda. Est. retail: $100. (Est.

US direct involvement until the fall of Saigon. The map covers the
entirety of South Vietnam as well as border regions of neighboring
countries. Combat units represent Allied and Communist forces
on the regimental-divisional level, and a Support Point track
abstractly indicates the level of artillery and air support available
to the players. The goal of the game as the Allied player is to
prevent the fall of South Vietnam without losing excessive
prestige and support within the world community (losing face),
while the goal of the Communist player is to end US involvement
as soon as possible so that he may face and defeat South Vietnam
alone. BSVN is fast paced with a great deal of tension, options,
and decision making throughout the game. One map, one sheet of
large counters, 110 cards. Stephen van Hoak. Est. retail: $60. (Est.

Outreachthree games covering interstellar
warfare on the strategic, tactical and galactic
scales.
43. Star Force Alpha Centauri covers the
initial human penetration into interstellar space,
with the map showing the local group of stars in
three dimensions. This will have several different
races of sentient beings, each with their own
psychology, reflected in different capabilities
and objectives. Game units will include: star
forces (four ships each), star gates, and star
soldier strike commands. There will also be some
specialized units, such as local forces of varying
capability, weapons packs for star forces, and
nova inducing conversion bombs for when things
get really desperate. A deck of cards will generate
specialized capabilities for each sentient race as
well as game events, allowing for the linking of
individual scenarios into one grand game. One
map, one counter sheet, one deck of cards. Joseph
Miranda. (Est. retail: $60; est. pledge: $45).
44. Outreach covers the conquest of the Galaxy.
Each player represents a different sentient race,
each with its own special capabilities. Players
have various types of star forces which can be
used to explore galactic regions and engage in
combat. The game map depicts the entire Milky
Way Galaxy, divided up into hexagons. Star forces
explore a hex by drawing a card from a deck which
will gives local star system resources, types of
sentient populations (if any), and unique conditions
(such as collapsars which can be used as ersatz
star gates). Each card will have a corresponding
marker which will be placed on the map in the
explored hexagon. The game will also include an
interface with Star Force for tactical resolution

of battles. One map, one counter sheet, one deck


of cards. Joseph Miranda. (Est. retail: $60; est.
pledge: $45).
45. Star Soldier covers combat actions between
elite star soldier forces fighting for control of
planets in the Star Force universe. Units will
represent several types of star soldiers, support
platforms, ground forces, and orbital support. Each
of the sentient races from the Star Force universe
will have its own separate set of capabilities.
There will also be various types of hostile aliens
for the occasional bug hunt (and the bugs may
have hidden abilities which can really bite back!).
The game will use geomorphic maps to portray
different types of environs, as well as a space
map for scenarios set around assaulting enemy
star gates. Cards will provide individual leaders,
random events and secret objectives. Geomorphic
maps, one counter sheet, one deck of cards.
Joseph Miranda. (Est. retail: $60; est. pledge:
$45).
46. Battles for the Galactic Empire. This will
be an operational to tactical level game set in the
Struggle for the Galactic Empire universe. The
game map will depict a star system which players
construct by placing markers representing a
central star (or stars), planets, asteroids and other
stellar objects. A scenario generator will provide
for different configurations of systems and forces.
Players would have available various types of
units from the Struggle game (regular and alpha
fleets, elite Imperial Order commands, and all the
rest), plus additional forces representing planetary
assault troops and drone fighter screens. Combat
would involve several different types of weapons
systems, each with its own combat results table. A
unique feature is that through morphogenetics, you
can convert enemy forces to your side. Event chits
will provide objectives, special events, characters
and random events. One map, two counter sheets.
Joseph Miranda. (Est. retail: $52; est. pledge:
$39).
47. Contact with Krishna. Players explore a
giant alien spaceship which has entered the solar
system. There are two general types of cards
in the game. One is a set of deck cards laid out
face down to form the ship interior. The others
are exploration cards to interact with the ship.
Each player has a marker representing their
exploration team. As each team moves through

the ship, deck cards are tuned face up. Depending


on what the deck represents, different types of
interactions become possible. Players resolve
these interactions by playing exploration cards.
Certain cards can be combined with other cards
for enhanced effects. There are several objectives,
including determining the ships origin, its purpose,
and how to maneuver it. The game can be played
solitaire, competitively with two or more players,
or cooperatively. Two decks of 55 cards. Joseph
Miranda. (Est. retail: $28; est. pledge: $21).

STRATEGY & TACTICS PRESS


BOOKS
48. Barbarossa is an analysis of the decisions
that shaped the first 18 months of the Eastern
Front. Major what-if possibilities are reviewed
including an earlier start to the campaign, an
earlier drive to capture Moscow, a Soviet first
strike, and alternative plans to 1942 campaign.
John Burtt. Est. retail: $35 (Est. Pledge $28).
49. Joint Warfare is an analysis of the history
and practice of joint operation: the integration
of all military forces into a single instrument of
warfare. The book will include several historical
case studies, such as the Roman use of combined
land-naval forces; the Guadalcanal campaign in
World War II; the US SEALORDS campaign in
the Mekong Delta; and current operations in the
Middle East conflict. The book will look at land,
sea and air forces, as well as special operations
forces and other instruments of national power.
One aspect will be the development of bottomup joint operations, where local commanders
decide work out their own command relationships,
as opposed to top-down situations. The book
will include numerous maps and orders of battle.
Joseph Miranda. Est. retail: $35 (Est. Pledge $28).
50. High Ground: The Art of Using Terrain
in Battle. Each chapter focuses on one battle
(not necessarily from any particular era) in which
terrain had an impact on a battle: e.g. high ground
for observation, high ground as psychology (the
Pratzen at Austerlitz), a river as a curtain of
maneuver, etc. In some cases the terrain surprises
both sides, in others one commander makes a
conscious decision to use it. Chris Perello. Est.
retail: $35 (Est. Pledge $28).
51. Bushido & Kamikaze: Strategy & Tactics
in the PTO will reexamine many of the common

War in Europe is a computer-moderated simulation of the European Theater


of Operations in World War II. Theres no computer / AI player in the game;
players make all the critical decisions. You decide on production schedules,
declare war on neutral nations, and control the ground, air, sea and strategic
forces of the Axis, Allied and Soviet powers in order to change or recreate
the events of the war. The game is a division-level simulation, with some
brigade and corps-sized ground units. Play takes place on a 159x133 hex map
of Europe and North Africa. Naval power and air power are abstracted as points rather than on-map
units, including: surface fleet, U-Boat, transport, amphibious assault, tactical air and strategic bomber
points.

The Role & Mechanics


of Battle in the
American Civil War

Robert F. Burke

by Robert F. Burke

by Christopher Perello
The fascination with Custers Last Stand hasnt
diminished in the decades since 1876. He led
his regiment well ahead of the main body, only
to run into an unprecedented gathering of
Indians. The first accounts were pieced together
by other soldiers arriving on the scene in the
battles aftermath, and by archaeologists in the
generations since. To that information was added
the reminiscences of the Indians who fought there.
Interleaving and cross-referencing all those
accounts provides a minute-by-minute story
of the fighting, as Custer desperately and
expertly maneuvered his outnumbered troops
to face repeated and well-coordinated assaults
by bands of Indian warriors. The resultant
narrative is supported by dozens of detailed
maps and orders of battle for both sides.

Civil War came to the US when the first


shot was fired at Fort Sumter on 12 April
1861. Most, including the leaders of both
sides, thought it would be won or lost
quickly, with a great battlefield collision.
Instead, it ground on for four years.
Battles were frequent, but each one rarely
decided more than the control of a single
town or a few blood soaked fields.
The Quest for Annihilation examines
those battles and the reasons they failed to
produce a decision. The book is loaded with
detail, and is illustrated with more than
320 maps, diagrams, photographs, orders
of battle and data tables (320 pages).

A Strategic Analysis of World War I
Ted S. Raicer

Crowns
in the

Gutter
A Strategic
Analysis of
World War I

by Ted S. Raicer
Illustrated by Christopher Perello
World War I was the crucial event of
the 20th century, as the great European
powers which until then dominated
the world economically, militarily and
politically destroyed themselves. That led
to a second war a generation later, enabled
the ascendance of the United States and
Soviet Union, and unleashed the forces of
nationalism and self-determination around
the globe. On the battlefield the war ushered
in the age of the internal-combustion
engine and wireless communication,
making factories and science as important
as manpower and generalship.
In the midst of all that, politicians and
generals still had a war to win, and soldiers
a war to fight. Crowns in the Gutter provides
a concise analysis of the strategies and
tactics employed to to try to achieve those
goals. The chapters cover the entire war
chronologically. They weave together the
campaigns and battles with political events,
improvements in weapons and changes in
combat methodology, into one seamless
story. The narrative also has dozens of
maps and diagrams to further illustrate
all the action of the first total war.
