Background of Korea
Enhanced Korean Theater was first introduced as an idea by some of the F4UT Management guys, however nothing got done for it in long time so finally PMC TFW (well F4UT guys also) decided to put together a playable new larger and enhanced Korean theater, so "Korea128" was born. This was in December 2002. Also it was earlier discussed An idea for the current Korean terrain forum topic to edit original Korea to add the few important missing airbases in the region.

Korea128 uses the default Microprose tiles so it looks almost the same as the old Korean theater. The tiling has been made with CATE autotiler software and there is still some work to do to produce the variety for the terrain tiling.
Campaign and Tactical Engagement objectives are still to be linked so the airwar and mostly ground war can progress.
