Description Edit | History

From the publisher:

"Is Iran building a nuclear weapon? Little is known for certain. However, on June 6, 2008, Israeli Transport Minister, Shaul Mofaz said; "If Iran continues with its program for developing nuclear weapons, we will attack it".

Persian Incursion explores the political and military effects of an Israeli military campaign against Iran. It uses rules adapted from Harpoon 4 to resolve the military action. But its goal is to look beyond the military action by modeling the political and intelligence actions and consequences of a potential political conflict by including a card-based diplomatic/political component to the game.

Players spend Political, Intelligence and Military Points to influence allies or enemies, purchase reinforcements, execute military strikes or shape their own domestic opinion. Players choose variable starting conditions that shape scenarios, while random strategic events influence play in unexpected ways.

Persian Incursion provides comprehensive and detailed information on:

  • Orders of battle for the Israeli and Iranian Air Forces and the Iranian Air Defense Force
  • Analysis of the Iranian nuclear and oil infrastructure
  • Iranian ballistic missiles and Israeli ballistic missile defenses
  • Target folders for Iranian nuclear facilities, oil terminals and refineries, and airfields
  • Variable starting conditions

5 PI Iranian Log
Excel file to keep records of Iranian player (Political status, air & SAM, Actions, Ballistic & Terror, Israeli airstrike). It has data inside of a game being played, I didn't delete it before submitting because it's useful as example of how it works.

8 Persian Incursion Strike Sheet
Excel spreadsheet with dropdown boxes for all aircraft, squadrons, mission type, weapons etc. I've also added the repair spreadsheet submitted earlier. It isn't perfect so feel free to make any improvements you see fit. It saves an awful lot of paper shuffling during a game.

4 Persian Incursion Quick Repair Charts v. 1.1
Charts to speed up repair rolls with Persian Incursion. To use: 1) Determine the number of aircraft needing repair for a given maintenance level (First through Fourth) 2) Find the appropriate chart and the column corresponding to the number of aircraft needing repair. 3) Roll 2D6 and add the totals together. 4) Find the row corresponding to the 2D6 roll and cross-reference with the column found in (2). The result is the number of aircraft repaired. To generate these, I used a computer model to calculate the probability of repairing a certain number of aircraft given a certain number of total broken aircraft and a given maintenance level. Once I had those numbers, I fit them as best I could to a 2D6 bell curve by a lot of manual fiddling. (Cue Jason Statham in The Italian Job-...
