Crisis: Korea Rules Clarifications

19.21 (page 6 in Advanced rules): Add this sentence to the bottom of the first paragraph:
Only 1 HQ shift per side may be used in a given combat.

23.0 (page 23 in the advanced rules):In the next to last paragraph, where it discusses additional strike damage to ground units, replace the last two sentences with:
A ground unit that bears a "Strike 2" marker and takes a subsequent Strike 1 or Strike 2 result immediately loses one step and retains its Strike 2 marker.

Questions and Answers

What is the sequence for placing units into the Air Superiority Box. Does the NKPA have to place his units first, afterwards the US can counter? Or is it simultaneous (blind)? (In GDW's TWW system which uses a similar air system this is the case.) Makes a big difference.
It's simultaneous. I chose to handle AWACS advantages (and one way to do it WOULD have been to just force the NKPA to go first in placing air superiority units) by allowing the superior AWACS levels to choose engagements, which I think makes a little more sense anyway.

In this game, as far as the air strikes go, overcast weather seems to be a big advatage as detection and SAM accuracy are greatly decreased - yet strike accuracy is not affected (unless I'm missing something). Not knowing anything about modern air combat I was suprised about this. How does this affect the current missions in the Balkans? (nice segue, no?)
Well, I streamlined the air strikes a bit for ease of play purposes. If you want to reflect the problems of laser-guided and "Mark I Eyeball" bombing in overcast weather, add the following DRM to air attacks on the Advanced Strike Table:
  • +2 For all AIR Strikes by any unit other than the US B-2 bomber. This does not apply to Wild-Weasel or Cruise Missile Strikes.
Additional Rule for Air Launched Cruise Missile Strikes:
  • Each B-52 unit in the game may make 1 Cruise Missile Strike per game-turn. No Interception, SAM, or Air Defense Fire is allowed (the bomber is assumed to be firing from rougly 500 miles from the target).
  • An air-launched cruise missile attack is resolved in the same manner as that for sea-launched cruise missiles.
