Description Edit | History

With no foreign power intervening, the PRC must conquer the island of Taiwan within 15 days or the ROC wins. The war itself is conventional and fast paced. The supposition that the simulation is based on is that the Chinese are able to use their economic (Suez Canal) and military leverage to keep America out of the conflict.

When Dragons Fight is an operational level game on the hypothetical invasion of the Republic of China (known also as Taiwan) by the communist Peoples' Republic of China.The game is of low to intermediate complexity that posits the critical phase of this might be war lasting about a half a month. The system covers a wide spectrum of modern operational warfare, including rules for land and air warfare. Victory is determined for the Communists by seizing a significant portion of the island's population centers, which would render Taiwan's continued existence as an independent country economically and strategically impossible. The Taiwanese win through denial of Communist Victory Points or the capture of the landing beaches.

Units portrayed are mainly brigades and divisions, ranging from about 5000-10,000 men, and some 50-250 armored fighting vehicles in the mechanized units. The game map covers the entire island of Formosa (also known as Taiwan).

Game scale:
hex scale = 11 km per hex side to side
time = one day per game turn
strength = regiment/brigade/division sized units
