About This File
“The Senkaku Conflict” is a set of 11 single player missions in which you fly as a member of the JASDF (Japanese Air Self Defense Force) against the Chinese in a limited, regional conflict. The missions form a 'linear' style campaign experience with the aid of an included briefing book. I've been frustrated by SF2's campaign mechanism and wanted to put out mission packs that tell a bit more story and are a bit more immersive in nature, rather than letting the game's campaign code just generate mission after mission with no real sense of continuity or panache.
The premise of the missions is a gradually escalating dispute between Japan and China in October of 2014. While the conflict is fictional of course, the dispute over the Senkaku Islands is quite real and has the potential to turn into an actual flashpoint in the eastern Pacific. Some of the facts behind the conflict are mentioned in the Intelligence Overviews in the Mission Brief Book.
A full explanation of all facets of the mod is included in the README file in the zip file. That is the place to start for a full description of the mission pack, as well as information on required mods needed to play.
The Senkaku Conflict Mission Brief Book is included in the zip file in .pdf format. You'll need adobe acrobat reader in order to use the briefing book- I don't expect that will be a big issue for anyone here. The briefing book for this mission pack is what ties the missions together and tells the 'story' of what is happening and why. Unlike some of my other mission packs this 'campaign' does not branch, so the briefing book is somewhat simpler than in other mods where I've used the concept. A full explanation on the use and purpose of the briefing book is included in the README file.
