During the Korean war both China provided a large amount of aid to North Korea. More than a million "voluntary armies" were sent. (a hell lot more than the no. of both North Korean and Soviet soldiers who participated the war combined)
How to present this sheer number of army? Should they be represented as just supporting troops controlled by N. Korea? Or should they be controlled by China?
If they are controlled by China, how to prevent China directly fighting the West in-game so that China wont get invaded immediately after N. Korea is defeated?
And, during the Vietnam War, China also sent large amount of supplies. But this time there was the Cultural Revolution. China was literally in total chaos. There was even armed conflicts between the Red Guards(weapons mostly from the military). My father was there, and he says in Yunnan the Red Guards even got the weapons(including anti-air guns) which were to sent to N. Vietnam to just fight each other.
So, how should the game represent the Cultural Revolution?
