Correction:
1. Situation: U S Army Elements Moving South NOT SOURTH
2. IJA Order of Battle Board 58 Additional elements Setup South of DD-5 FF4 HEXES NOT North of DD5 FF4 Hexes

NOTE: Caves setup HIP regardless of Terrain , Cave LOS is at the Lower Level Hill that Cave is lplaced
EX Cave Setup at Level Two Level One Hill =Crest Line, that cave LOS is at Level One

ie: Gun or Mortar would NOT have to be moved outside of the Cave to Fire
2. Enter and exit of a Cave thru the Covered Arc 1 MP
