For LXF Efile

(By Golothin)
Fancy to try something different? Good, this Challenge presents one of the rare naval type campaigns where a combined core of ground, air and naval units is needed. The idea for PG2 naval campaign is not new - back then, Andreas Seidel and Dennis Felling made a start with the DEUTSCHE MARINEKORPS CAMPAIGN and these two guys would definitely like the today possibilities of OG. Naval campaigns are not everyone's taste - some like it, others not. So I'm happy if some of the still around players give it a try!
It is a 23 scenarios long linear semi-historical campaign starting in 1937 in China and ending 1943 in the Pacific. Semi-historical means the repertoire ranges from historical and hypothetical up to fictional scenarios - every type is included on rarely seen maps. For experienced admirals, playing at 50% should pose no problems if act thoughtfully. The camp is relative new and use a wide variety of OG features and in conclusion I would like to point out the in my view most important settings used by the campaign/Efile:

- Construction units can build/lay bridges on Major River (former Impassable River) terrain.
- Level bombers and High Altitude Reconnaissance aircraft can only intercepted by AD/Fighter class and Destroyer/Carrier with DP arming but not by Flak class.
- Level bombers and Night fighters are AWC-capable.
- Level bombers and Jet-powered aircraft can't use dirt airfields.
- Flaks, Destroyers and Carriers defending friendly units against air attacks with range = 1.
- Also spotted Flak/AD/Destroyer/Carrier units intercept aircraft finishing movement above or in range = 1.
- Infantry/AT/Arty/Fortification class units and combat ships give support fire.
- Dive Bomber/Flamethrower and Rocket Launcher units ignore entrenchment like Engineers.
- All ground units and combat ships can capture flags.
- Fortifications/Elite Infantry and Guerrilla units don't surrender.
- Ground units get full resupply on any terrain, also desert.
- Attachments give bonus without penalty and don't increase the value of your core.
- Combined Air Deploy/Air Exit Hexes can't be used to resupply aircraft, also not adjacent. Aircraft leave the map if you fly above.
- This is a No-auto-refit campaign! Core units suffered in battle have to brought to full strength in HQ manually with the available pp.
- For replacement are two options available - Green and Elite replacement. Green replacement is cheap but leads to loss of experience. Elite replacement is expensive, but no experience is lost.
- Most of the available aircraft can be carried by ships. Which ships can carry which aircraft is displayed in Purchase/Upgrade dialog and also ingame by a green marker.
- Press Ctrl+K before movement if an aircraft should place above a ship and not in hangar.
- Extended Naval Rules and critical hit are turned on!

Enjoy the Challenge!
