The Korean War staff rides examine the 2nd Infantry Division’s fight at Chipyong-ni at multiple levels of command. The Combat Action Korea (the Lost Patrol) is a 3-hour staff ride that examines a platoon reconnaissance mission and the follow-on relief effort of a company to rescue the isolated platoon (27-30 Jan 1951). The Battle of Chipyong-ni is a 4 to 6 hour staff ride that studies the attack of multiple divisions of the Chinese People's Volunteer Army (PVA) against the 23d Regimental Combat Team’s perimeter at Chipyong-ni (27 Jan – 15 Feb 1951). The 2nd Infantry Division at the Battles of Wonju and Chipyong-ni is a six- hour staff ride that examines the division’s fight to hold the Wonju – Chipyong-ni Line in order to resume offensive operations (27 Jan – 15 Feb 1951).

Each version of the Korean War VSR is fully exportable to any organization that has access to the Army-licensed gaming software, Virtual Battlespace 3 (VBS3).
