I love the new Pacific Maps in FH, especially Wake Island and I was thinking that the battle for Tarawa would make an exceptionally good battle. I realize that they have that battle in the maps section, but it looks very plain. I stumbled across a picture that gives a very good layout of the island. http://www.rickard.karoo.net/Maps/Tarawa1.gif

After reading about the battle I found that Japan had tanks on the island, along with one biplane converted into a bomber, and the U.S. successfully got there Shermans to shore after a day on the island. I hope the Devs have considered this map for future battlefields.

And when you say Tarawa you mean Betio. Don't forget to add the reefs so that only amtracks can succesfully get to the beach. Wonder how your gonna succesfully represent all those Amtracks getting blown to hell? Hmm, 75mm aa? I hope you basically force the marines to use their higgins boats, get stuck on the reef and have them wade onto the beach. Oooo...my lmg would have some fun then. Just some stuff from my WWII class. First wave of Marines went in on amtracks, but as the amtracks pulled away to get more, many were blown up by the Japanese. So, the next wave used higgins boats, got caught on the reefs, and of course had to wade to shore. Out of the 5000 initial marines, only about 1500 made it on the beach. 4500 SNLF Japanese (Imperial Marines) under the command of Shibasuki. He had 25 8' inch guns, 14 tanks, numerous pillboxes, tank ditches, etc, etc. An interesting battle in the war, a very easy case to show the US Marines were just as "Fanatical" as the Japanese.

That is a pretty cool picture, also check out this map which my WWII class uses. It shows the progression of the battle pretty well. It also shows the battle of makin. http://www.dean.usma.edu/history/web03/atlases/ww2%20pacific/ww2%20pacific%20%20pages/ww2%20pacific%20map%2023.htm
