YES. But In 1938 this kind of Artillery is avialable in the scenario Editor (put into production 1935) and I based on IJA campaign Panzer Corps and there is similar Artilerry and..I read about the Soviet Forces in this battle. They had 600 guns. 23.000 soldiers, 350 tanks, 250 aircraft :). This big Artillery have to cover the hills. Playability is ok. But I have work with the triggers

No. Because They are completely safe because they are protect by the lake. One way to destroy of them is to bombard by strategic planes. And in this mission Japenese forces Primary objecitve is get this 4 hills.

by the way. My idea is: To connect the core force from the MORNING SUN CAMPAIGN and continue:
FIRST campaign as continuation SINOJAPANESE WAR 1940-1945
SECOND IJA campaign. This scenario is for the tests. But probably IJA campign will start in 1940 French Indochina and end somewhere in Burma in 1945 :) (Im thinking)
PS. I'm planning to make my own commanderws and it will be cool the devs could add the slots for the the AWARDS for each unit like in Panzer Corps.

So is it acually possible to import core forces into custom campaigns?
I thought importing can only happen with specific official campaigns.

My question is:
I would like to give a commander if some of Japanese unit will get the first hill. How it make in the editor scenario?
I modifed the proportions between the REd Army and Japanese Army. I read about real forces in this battle and try to be close as far is possible:)

thanks!!! Temrinator I got it. It works !!! :)
The next question:
Can I edit for example "tank unit"I would like to make maximal force uf unit tanks 5 or 6 not to 10 in Scenario editor? Sometimes I would like can determine the proportions of armored forces if it possible?
for example the Tigers was very strong but not too many tanks on the battlefields. SImnilar thing I rememebr in Panzer Corps.

I think it is not a good solution to give a commander just for capturing a primary victory point.
You should save this "bonus" only for the secondary objectives (secondary objective are complicated to create). But a primary objective can also be a secondary objective if you add a condition.
I see that all the Primary Victory Points are on the Hill (I do not see the top of the map).
If all the primary objectives are on the hill, you could create a secondary objective "Capture a primary VP on the hill in 5 turns" with Objective award = commander ?

I do not think it is possible (It is already enough complicated to make a good scenario). Maybe in a Mod ?
