Bay of Pigs

Bay of Pigs Invasion
April 15 - April 19, 1961

In early 1961, a group of US-funded and supplied Cuban exiles returned to invade Cuba in an attempt to topple the communist government of Fidel Castro.

The invasion took place at the Bay of Pigs (Bahia de Cochinos) on the Southwestern coast of Cuba.

With the support of President Kennedy, the CIA, fresh off recent success in overthrowing governments in Iran and Guatemala felt confident they could take down Castro. They trained, funded and supplied over 1,500 Cuban exiles for the attack.

On the morning of April 15, the attack began with flights of B-26 Marauder and A-26 Invaders attacking airfields in the landing region. Soldiers parachuted in behind enemy lines to target strategic bridges, roads and defenses.

Meanwhile four 2,400 ton transport ships accompanied by CIA-owned landing crafts brought the ground troops. They landed at Playa Larga and Playa Giron. Unfortunately for the landing forces, what was identified as seaweed in satellite surveillance was in reality razor-sharp coral reefs, which slowed progress and sank several ships before reaching shore.

The revolutionary troops eventually landed and quickly forced back the defending Cuban militia. However once US involvement became public knowledge, air support abruptly ended. It also became apparent that Cuba had advance knowledge of the invasion and had effectively camouflaged their air force - their own planes scrambled to the skies to retaliate against the sea vessels and invading land forces.

The invading force got pinned down in the Zapata swamp by the resurging Cuban Army, and with lack of air support, they were quickly captured and defeated.

By April 21, 104 revolutionaries were dead, the rest captured. As many as 5,000 Cuban military were dead.

Now, you can recreate the invasion - Will the revolutionary forces stick to the plan and win? Or will the Cuban Army once again fend off the invaders?

Map Rules:
1) US Aircraft can only attack their designated parachute drop zones.
2) Cuban airports can attack US aircraft in addition to their neighboring countries.
3) Naval troops can only land at the marked beach coastline near Playa Larga and Playa Giron.
