Default Campaign Locations

Well, we've all played through Poland a few times at least!

What are some locations you have wanted to set a game in apart from Poland/Germany?

I wanted to do a steam boat island hopping south from The Philippines to Australia. PCs would have been embassy guards or similar trying to get a bunch of non-shooters home alive.
A 'pursuit fleet' would be generated that I hadn't fleshed out but they'd try and stop the ship from getting to Australia by any means possible. They'd be too tough to attack directly.

Korea would be nice and I've done a bit of work on the likely Australian and New Zealand units deployed there.

So has Raellus in his Korean Sourcebook - you could use that too

You could use the East African Sourcebook for campaigns anywhere in East Africa - and there is canon info there that you could also use for the Congo or South Africa

Could, but I've focused all my attention on the Anzac forces and working on an OOB down to the smallest element and unit history that accurately reflects reality as closely as possible.
I've also had to work on the Australian/Indonesian conflict as well given Australia only has limited forces and with a threat close to home would only be able to spare a relatively token force to Korea.

I ran a T2k13 campaign that started in Russia. We only made it about 10 sessions or so when life took a dump on me and things just kind of fell apart. The group was part of an invasion force that was supposed to secure a beach head for a follow-on force, thereby opening up another front and relieving pressure in other areas. Unfortunately, the reinforcements never arrived, and eventually the President gave the "Good luck, you're on your own" speech. The invasion force attempted to pull out and head back to the US, and the Russians used what little air power they could field, as well as a tactical nuke, to destroy the invaders.

My collection of notes labeled "Home Front". The plan was a guard unit in Europe or Asia and their dependents back home. Two campaigns in one setting.

And thats pretty much what Raellus had there

Ok given what you just said about Australia/Indonesia you need to write that sourcebook - love to see what you have

Raellus has a general overview of an Australian task force sized group, not the details that Legbreaker is talking about.

I'm currently working on a idea set in the Caribbean, drawing on the Gateway to the Spanish Main module. Lots of ideas there and lots of other interesting locations around the Caribbean region that could make for a very exciting campaign.
