Introduction

The North Korean 6th Division did its best to hold up the American advance, blowing up the bridge over the river Nam and deploying a delaying force in the town of Chinju to cover the rest of the division as it retreated. The Americans built an underwater bridge of their own with sandbags, and crossed in the pre-dawn hours to attack Chinju.

Conclusion

The 35th Infantry Regiment crossed the Nam River and ejected the North Koreans from Chinju. The NKPA rear guard fought fiercely to hold the town, getting good support from their organic mortars and direct-fire artillery while American tanks fired on the town from the opposite bank of the river. American engineers soon had the bridge repaired and the caissons were rolling along.


Display Relevant AFV Rules

AFV Rules Pertaining to this Scenario's Order of Battle
  • Vulnerable to results on the Assault Combat Chart (7.25, 7.63, ACC), and may be attacked by Anti-Tank fire (11.2, DFT). Anti-Tank fire only affects the individual unit fired upon (7.62, 11.0).
  • AFV's are activated by tank leaders (3.2, 3.3, 5.42, 6.8). They may also be activated as part of an initial activating stack, but if activated in this way would need a tank leader in order to carry out combat movement.
  • AFV's do not block Direct Fire (10.1).
  • Full-strength AFV's with "armor efficiency" may make two anti-tank (AT) fire attacks per turn (either in their action segment or during opportunity fire) if they have AT fire values of 0 or more (11.2).
  • Each unit with an AT fire value of 2 or more may fire at targets at a distance of between 100% and 150% of its printed AT range. It does so at half its AT fire value. (11.3)
  • Efficient and non-efficient AFV's may conduct two opportunity fires per turn if using direct fire (7.44, 7.64). Units with both Direct and AT Fire values may use either type of fire in the same turn as their opportunity fire, but not both (7.22, 13.0). Units which can take opportunity fire twice per turn do not have to target the same unit both times (13.0).
  • Demoralized AFV's are not required to flee from units that do not have AT fire values (14.3).
  • Place a Wreck marker when an AFV is eliminated in a bridge or town hex (16.3).
  • AFV's do not benefit from Entrenchments (16.42).
  • AFV's may Dig In (16.2).
  • Closed-top AFV's: Immune to M, M1 and M2 results on Direct and Bombardment Fire Tables. Do not take step losses from Direct or Bombardment Fire. If X or #X result on Fire Table, make M morale check instead (7.25, 7.41, 7.61, BT, DFT).
  • Closed-top AFV's: Provide the +1 modifier on the Assault Table when combined with infantry. (Modifier only applies to Germans in all scenarios; Soviet Guards in scenarios taking place after 1942; Polish, US and Commonwealth in scenarios taking place after 1943.) (ACC)
  • Tank: all are closed-top and provide the +1 Assault bonus, when applicable

Korean War: Counter-Attack, scenario #54: Chinju Crossing

Interesting, in this scenario the Americans attack in the night using an underwater bridge of their own! The Americans must clear all the town hexes and the north-south road hexes on map 110 to win. The Nam River is major and here is where I made both my strategic and tactical errors. I setup my underwater bridge crossing point way west of the enemy units being too overly cautious. Being that it was night and the North Koreans were on the defensive, I probably didn’t have to. It took me 4 turns just to get into contact with the NKPA units and with only 16 turns in this scenario it was not enough to clear the North Koreans from all the objectives, as there were still some holdouts in town. Next time, I’ll cross right up close the NKPA and risk the counter-attack but have a better chance to win. This was a NKPA victory by my lack of planning well.
