>(naval more than ground) can make for good FT scenario
Later actions as well. I imagine the French Indochina campaign,
or the Malaya insurgency, or others where a relatively small
number of well-equipped professionals at the end of a long
supply line face large numbers of locals armed with whatever
they can make or have smuggled in, fighting the occasional
battalion or brigade level action interspersed with lots of
small unit raids. For the FTers, add the smugglers and the
blockade squadrons and you have a mini-campaign ready to go.
