SBG 3: The Chinese Expansion

Watermarked PDF

The Chinese Expansion makes Surface Battle Group v3.0 the most up to date naval combat game available. It's 65 pages of "What's happening now".

 You must have a copy of the Surface Battle Group v3.0 core rules in order to use this expansion.

The People's Republic of China (PRC) and the Republic of China (ROC / Taiwan) are the forces contained here. The data sources are 21st century, many of them 2005 or newer. Chinese SSBN's and Nimitz class CVN's are here. The F-18E Super Hornet and the Su-30Mk2 Flanker are present as well.

The aircraft carrier Shi Lang along with her compliment of J-11 strike fighters is here too!

There are five scenarios for you to explore the repercussions of incidents in the Strait of Taiwan or the Pacific. Even action in the South China Sea is possible. Three scenarios are PRC versus ROC. Two of them are PRC versus USN. In keeping with being current, two of the scenarios involve nuclear / electromagnetic pulse effects on the combatants.

 The 400nm air range of the PRC is enough to make the neighbors of the People's Republic uncomfortable. Taiwan and the South China Sea are definitely with the sphere of influence of the PRC. The geo-political landscape has changed. Neighboring nations now have to deal with the reality of the PRC presence. They will work to retain their independence while not losing any good relations they have with the west; or irritating the PRC.

 In the process of digging up the data to create this expansion, I found plenty of photographs of ships listed in this work on the web. Simply enter "Taiwanese Navy ships",  "Chinese Navy ships", "Russian Navy ships" and just about any of the USN ship classes to find downloadable photos. Just print them on cardstock.

 Now more than ever, today's headline can be tonight's game!

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
