Advanced Squad Leader – Action Pack #16: From The Land Down Under Unpacking

At the bottom of the page is an “unpacking” video of MMP’s new action pack, consisting of a set of 15 tournament scenarios and board 15a/b. As is my normal process in the video I blur out the OB details to protect MMP’s copyright. Please support MMP and our hobby by purchasing their products.

Half of these tournament level scenarios (none are longer than 6.5 turns) feature Australian forces fighting in battles around the world, one is a PTO battle between the Japanese and the US Marines, while the rest are European Theater scenarios featuring American, British, Russian, and German forces.

Here’s the official MMP blurb from their website:

Action Pack #16: From The Land Down Under features a new map (15a/b) and 15 new scenarios designed and playtested by the Australian ASL community. Spearheaded by Andrew Rogers (Hatten In Flames), the scenarios of Action Pack #16 feature actions and combatants from all around the globe.
