War Plan Orange updated

Matrix Games, 2by3 Games and Justin Prince Designs deliver a new v1.20 update for the wargame War Plan Orange: Dreadnoughts in the Pacific 1922 ? 1930. The v1.20 update focuses on adding more detail to the database of information.

Regiments were added, coastal defenses significantly updated, additional historical weapons were included and the West Coast, the Philippines and Hawaii were improved with additional historical forts. Additionally the AI was improved in all scenarios to be more aggressive and to make better use of its ships. A host of minor updates and improvements round out the list of 37 changes included in this patch. This new update is a comprehensive update, which will upgrade all previous versions of War Plan Orange to the v1.20 level.

Following World War I, The United States, fearing the worst, developed a system of plans for a potential war in the Pacific against Japan. In the real world most of these plans never saw the light of day, but in War Plan Orange: Dreadnoughts in the Pacific 1922-1930, the conflicts that the planners envisioned actually occurred.

Gone are the strategic bombers and large carrier task forces. In their place are dreadnoughts, battleships, battlecruisers and biplanes. Face off ships from World War I and the inter-war years, including hypothetical ships such as the Battlecruiser Lexington, the 18" South Dakota Class, the British G3 and the Japanese Kii.

Two campaigns with three variants each as well as two smaller scenarios cover two hypothetical wars in the decade of the 1920s.
