Hello, I am playing TSC right now and am considering trying SSC next. I was wondering if the land battles are something that you would actually play on a tabletop with any WW2 miniature rules for land combat, or if they have some abstract mechanism for resolution without the need for the table top game?

Thanks in advance,
J

In addition to my question above, it doesn't state explicitly that you should roll a D12 on Engagement X of the assult table. I am assuming this is the case but didn't see it written explicitly anywhere.

The SSC land battles are simple 6 sided die role
with modifiers, to determine the winner

Thanks for the answer, has anyone experimented with ways to translate those land battles into on-table games?

While beyond the scope of a purely naval game, you could use any board game or miniature rules (such as Mein Panzer; gotta plug the company product, ya know!) to play out the land battles. You'd have to develop the OOBs for the two sides and relate the board or table results to the game results. Certainly within most gamers ability and it'd be a interesting (and fun!) expansion.

As to the ground combat for SSC: The ground combat is a bit more detailed than TSC. The base units are regiments and brigades with movement by area for Luzon (Luzon is split into 4 areas) while the island targets are considered single areas. Combat resolution is similar to a board game with a single die roll determining the outcome.
