My brother is trying to track down a wargame set in the pacific theatre.

He remembers the following:

1) He thinks it was most likely AH.

2) The system was also used for another game set in another theatre of war.

3) He seems to recall that the game used air, sea and land units.

Note: The game is not Victory in the Pacific.

Any help is appreciated.

Could it be Empire of the Rising Sun? This would be the sister game to Advanced Third Reich set in the European Theater.

If not AH, then possibly World War II: European Theater of Operations and World War II: Pacific Theater of Operations by TSR.

How old is your brother and what year/s did he play?

It could be one of the popular titles like Axis & Allies, or Axis & Allies Pacific 1940.

If we are talking (Monarch) Avalon Hill that really seems to be the only answer, but if you aren't 100% sure it was AH then the field opens up a bit.

Maybe it was this one......http://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/5622/pacific-war

Not Avalon Hill, but Victory Games, which was in some way linked to AH.

Used to own this one, before a leakage distroyed about 100 of my AH and VG games.......huge game, but very nice.

Except the game system is unique to Pacific War.

Was it chits or blocks? If blocks, it could be Pacific Victory - Lord knows it fits the criteria "The system was also used for another game set in another theatre of war." since all of Columbia's games use the same basic system.

Really really unlikely to be confused with an AH game
if it was so recent.
