For the first time, an Advanced Squad Leader module steps outside of the traditional World War II era to bring you FORGOTTEN WAR, covering the Korean War of 1950-1953.
New rules in FORGOTTEN WAR cover Steep Hills (reflecting the difficulties of movement and combat in the rugged Korean terrain); Bayonet Charges; Proximity Fuses; and enhanced Air Support featuring Tactical Air Control Parties, airborne Forward Air Controllers, and the jet-propelled aircraft of the era such as the F-80C Shooting Star and the F9F-2 Panther.
FORGOTTEN WAR includes several new nationalities, each with its own distinct characteristics, and expands some existing nationalities. FORGOTTEN WAR nationalities include the following:
United Nations (U.N.) Forces:
- R.O.K. (Republic of Korea);
- O.U.N.C. (Other United Nations Commands), representing forces from such countries as Colombia, Ethiopia, France, Thailand, and Turkey, all of whom contributed to the U.N. effort;
- U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps;
- British and Commonwealth (Australian, Canadian, and New Zealand) forces
- K.P.A. (Korean People's Army)
- C.P.V.A. (Chinese People's Volunteer Army)
FORGOTTEN WAR components include:
- seven countersheets
- four 8" x 22" maps (See a sneak peek of all four maps combined!)
- sixteen ASL scenarios
- Chapter W rules for the Korean War
- Chapter H rules for American, Commonwealth, O.U.N.C., R.O.K., K.P.A., and C.P.V.A.
- two chapter dividers
- one box and lid
Forgotten War Errata
W.7C: line 8, after “eliminate a Pillbox (B30.92),” add “reduce a foxhole (F7.42),”.
UN Forces Vehicle Listing (page H192): [U.S./ROK/OUNC Vehicle Note 3] (M4A3E8(105) MT): The Vehicle Listing indicates that this vehicle has a Fast Turret, but the counters indicate a Slow Turret. The counters are correct.
UN Forces Vehicle Listing (page H192) and U.S./ROK/OUNC Vehicle Note 21 (M37 HMC SPA) (page H196): The Vehicle Listing and the Note illustration indicates that this vehicle has a main armament mounted in a Fast Turret, but it should show a Non-Turreted main armament. The counter is also incorrect.
BCFK SW ALLOTMENT CHART (page H215): Canadian entry, in the “M2 60mm LT. MTR” column, delete superscript “6”.
Charts & tables
W. National Capabilities Chart (Chapter Divider): KMC entry, in the “ORDNANCE TH# Color OBA ACCESS FINAL ACC dr” column, change “9/50+: Black” to “8/50+: Black”.
W. Korea Terrain Chart: in row “W1.33 Steep Hills Road” in the “Terrain (Rule)” column, “Steep Hills Road” should be in black—not red.
204 Human Bullets: In the VC, change “(see SSR 6)” to “(see SSR 5)”.
211 Task Force Faith Breakout: SSR 2, after the last sentence, add “Foxholes may not set up in playable road hexes.”
216 Centurions Reverse!: In the CPVA setup instructions, change “81T4” to “83T4”
UN M37 HMC: Should not have the large white circle, representing a T Gun type. This main armament is Not-Turreted.
FORGOTTEN WAR is not a complete game. Ownership of the Advanced Squad Leader Game System is required for play.
