The next game in our Gung-Ho campaign took place over 2 separate sessions, I suspect the playing time was over 5 hours! This time we had Jarkko for both sessions as the IJA SL with Petri as the 2nd SL. Mikko and Eero played for the Raiders as has been the case for all our games. Two of our initial players have been unable to join us be causing of scheduling problems.
USMC (FM 11)
2nd Marine Raider Battalion
3 Raider Squads with Superior JL's and 9 men
extra BARs for 1 squad
Lt Peatruss Strikes Again Wild Card (PreGB)

1 Inferior SL

We started off using P-Y's patrol ap, smaller dots represent the JOP's. This was the "Attack on an Objective" scenario for the main rulebook. The Raiders have to blow the Fuel Tanks. I felt both sides did well with good options for deployment.
|Somehow or another an extra JOP snuck in on the image below, there was not one in front of the oil tanks.|

This was a very tough game for both sides with the Raiders pushing hard against the depleted Japanese. There was a lot of casualties.
