Here is the follow up to Rear-Admiral Hitorio Hanso's punitive expedition to teach that pig Sheridan a lesson...This was our first game using the revised rules from Blog Updates and overall they work really well. The new critical hit table, updated MAR's and unit tweaks really make a difference.
Kiagun Shosho Hitorio Hanso stood in the atypical Japanese Naval Officers pose, rigid, one hand behind the small of his back while his sword hand gripped the hilt of his Katana. The knuckles of his sword had went white when the wireless operations officer informed him that recon planes of the Ho-o Air Armada had sighted the enemy.

The IJNS Masaka was steaming in line abreast with the crusiers of Ryu Squadron in close support. The IJAF heavy bombers and scout gyros were further out to starboard. It appeared that the FSA fleet was concentrated opposite the IJNS Naval group and Hitorio sent an order for the IJAF forces to move towards what looked to be two Battleships and engage.
The DFA-170 Bombers in close formation sighted the first Independence class Battleship and let loose their massed rocketry...scoring a palpable hit! Hitorio smiled coldly as fires broke out across its decks.
Suddenly lookouts called out that giant flying Iron Men were approaching...these must be the "John Henry" robots he had heard about. All forces were directed to engage and they were eventually bought down in a storm of cannon and rockets.
