1 - When setting up 5 ID/VI Corps I'm only setting up the two 5/VI units with this designation, not all of the VI Corps right?
Just the 5th Infantry Division (ID)/VI Corps.
2 - The DPRK light infantry (17 Sniper Bde, 38 Abn Bde, etc.) can be set up anywhere inside DPRK borders. Does that include DMZ locations? I'm wondering when these are set up in relation to when the ROK player sets up.
Yes. Allied (US/ROK/CW/JAP) player always sets up first. Functionally, since every unit has a starting hex, this means you can place the free setup units after the ROK player places his (helos, combat outposts, US 2ID units, supply depots, etc.). See Note in 16.0.
I know that the units are fixed in place, but the ROK player does get to place a CO which might affect the avenue of attack selected by the DPRK player. Is it considered simultaneous setup? Does ROK play have to select the location for the CO prior to DPRK setting up or does the DPRK have to place their units first?
ROK (Allied) player sets up first.
Can't wait to begin pushing cardboard on this one.
Careful...it's addicting :-) Thanks for playing and enjoy!
