Panzer Strategy - Daizor
Naval units have a more elaborate mechanics compared to Ground or Air forces. On the picture, you can see various ship parts of the Yorktown class carrier: 127 mm L38 Mk30 Dual-purpose gun, 20 mm Oerlikon Anti-Aircraft gun, Flight deck, Engine, Radar, etc. Most of them have HP indicated by a green bar and a number in the bottom right corner.

The less HP has a gun the lower damage it would deal upon firing.

If the Engine has 50% HP or less, the Move points of the ship are halved and if the Engine has 0 HP than the ship has 0 Move points. The number of Move points are added to all ship defenses at all times. Thus by damaging the Engine, you reduce ship defenses and increase the effectiveness of your next attacks.

The flight deck is another interesting ship part. It allows carrier-based Aircraft to land and take-off from the carrier. If it has 0 HP, Aircraft can no longer take off and land.

Every ship has a Maintenance unit which restores a number (depends on ship class) of HP to damaged ship parts at the end of every turn. However, the Hull cannot be repaired during the operations, and it is automatically restored between the operations.

Each ship also has an Emergency repair team, which can be used only a few times during each operation to fully restore chosen ship part.

Stay tuned to learn more about the game mechanics and features in the next updates.

The Early Access starts on April 30.

In the USA campaign, the player assumes the role of the newly appointed Commander in Chief Pacific Fleet ― Admiral Chester William Nimitz. He is to turn the tide of war in the Pacific.

During the Early Access period, the first three operations of the USA campaign will be available featuring epochal naval battles between the United States of America and the Empire of Japan, such as the Battle of the Coral Sea, the Battle of Midway and the Battle of Guadalcanal.

Try for yourself the role of the saviour of the US, and remember, Chester Nimitz did not have the save/load option to help him out. ;)

The Early Access starts on April 30. Feel free to join us.

Today, we want to tell you more about one of the games mechanics - the Dive bombing ability.

On the picture, you can see an SBD-5 dive bomber attacking Kagero class destroyer (usually it is not the brightest idea, as destroyers are far from easy targets for air attacks). SBD-5 (be default) has a Dive bomber skill, which allows it to chose which ship part to attack (expect the Hull and the Engine) or make an ordinary attack (damage is split among various ship parts).

Each attack does minimum damage of 1 to Hull, and the rest of it goes to the chosen ship part. Thus while torpedo bombers can deal more damage to the Hull with torpedoes, Dive bombers can perform precise strikes rendering useless selected ship parts, leaving the enemy ship easy prey for further attacks.

The proper combination and teamwork of different types of units is the key to success and a sign of a truly strategic mind. Only 15 days left before the start of Early Access. Make sure to try it out and give us your thoughts and proposals

Tone class is the last heavy cruiser design of the Imperial Japanese Navy. While its predecessor Mogami class (also in the game) was limited in design by the London Naval Treaty, Tone class had a much better design with fixed flaws and no limitations. It underwent various upgrades throughout the war.

It is a force to reckon with while playing the USA campaign, and an invaluable asset while playing the Empire of Japan campaign.

Only 20 days left before the start of the Early Access and we look forward to letting you play the game and voice your opinion.

Last week we gave you a glimpse of the US troops and now it is time for the adversaries - the Empire of Japan.

Unlike the US troops, the Japanese had a very limited number of light and medium tanks and even smaller number of self-propelled units available. So, the bulk of Japanese land troops had towed artillery, anti-air, and anti-tank units.
  • Artillery: Type 90 (75 mm), Type 91 (100 mm) and Type 96 (150 mm)
  • Anti-aircraft gun: Type 88 (75 mm) and Type 99 (88 mm)
  • Anti-tank gun: Type 1 (47 mm)
  • Japanese medium tanks: Type 97 Chi-Ha and Type 1 Chi-He
Later on Japanese started producing better tanks, but only in small numbers (due to severe lack of resources) and kept them for the defense of the mainland, so they never saw action.

While playing the Japanese campaign the player will have the opportunity to change that and use some of limited or even experimental models of Japanese tanks and self-propelled units to strengthen his land forces.

The key feature of the US land forces is better equipment and availability of self-propelled units of all types. This proved to be a solid advantage over arguably less technologically advanced Imperial Japanese Army.

And even though it was not a trivial task to transport and to land mechanized units on tiny islands amidst the Pacific Ocean each of those machines pushed the odds in the US favor.
  • Self-propelled anti-aircraft gun: M15 Halftrack
  • Self-propelled artillery: M7 “Priest”
  • Tank destroyer: M10 “Wolverine”
  • Tanks: Light tank M3 Stuart and Medium tank M4A1 Sherman

The Second Battle of Guam is one of Strategic Mind: The Pacific game scenarios.

It was the American recapture of the Japanese-held island of Guam captured by the Japanese in the 1941 First Battle of Guam during the Pacific campaign of WWII.

Strategic aviation (also known as long-range bomber planes) was designed to carry out bombing runs from distant locations.

It was able to destroy the enemy infrastructure even without the control of the airfields nearby. It was not efficient in dealing with naval or land forces, however, its purpose was to destroy the enemy infrastructure and disrupt its supplies and military production.

Strategic targets such as factories, cities, military bases and large supply depots were all in danger of being destroyed by strategic aviation.

In Strategic Mind: The Pacific such aerial strikes are ordered by the commander via corresponding HQ skill. It is a good way to help your troops deal with heavily fortified land bases and to destroy enemy infrastructure.

The US operates the famous Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress throughout the war.

While the Empire of Japan employes H8K2 flying boat for this purpose. Its advantage was the ability to land on water, where it could have been refueled by submarine for even longer range operations.

And let us not forget about the US B-29 Superfortress which was modified to carry out the atomic bombing of Japan in 1945.

It was a major battle in which the US Marine Corps landed on and eventually captured the island of Iwo Jima from the Imperial Japanese Army.

The Battle of Iwo Jima is one of the game scenarios in Strategic Mind: The Pacific.
