Storyline Idea: Malacca Straight


Recommended Posts

Attempting to come up with a storyline for a WestPac BattleSet that escalates more slowly than say a Chinese attempt to take Taiwan.

A battleset that centers on the Strait of Malacca would need a significantly better and more focused map than we have presently, imho.

The Strait is relatively long, but it is quite narrow and chock full of islands at its eastern entrance, all of which would potentially come into play in a naval warfare scenario.
