Pacific Fury

Pacific Fury

Pacific Fury is a large battleset which is critical to the Northern Fury story and runs in parallel to the campaigns in central and northern Europe and other regions. Although a sideshow for the Soviets this is a critical theater for the United States. Maintaining secure alliances with Pacific Rim partners is a critical national security objective in Washington and any threat to those relationships is threated very seriously.

The US and its allies are dispersed at the start of hostilities, the US Navy has seven aircraft carriers in the Pacific Fleet but two of those are in the Indian Ocean and will either remain there or transfer into the Atlantic, another is transiting to the Indian Ocean, one is stationed in Japan, one is training in the Philippians and two are on the west coast. Both Britain and France are at a low ebb of military elements available while Japan, South Korea and Australia are scrambling to muster their forces.

The Soviet intend to tie down US forces in particular in order to weaken any deployments to NATO. Although Soviet forces in the Pacific are substantial, they are hemmed in geographically and have limited strategic reach. The base at Cam Ranh Bay Vietnam is the exception to this and there are plans to make as much use out of that location as possible.
