Re: Harpoon 3 scenarios for the PlayersDB

The 28th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

02.4 Night Action [H3]



Sea of Dragons Battleset - Korean Standoff

A period of rising tension, sparked by the U.S. announcement for withdrawal of the 2nd Division, has characterized relations between North and South Korea. Border incursions by North Korean special forces have increased and several acts of terrorism, carried out in strategic cities (e.g. the destruction of Pusan's main railway signaling centre), have been identified as occurring under North Korean instructions. The rhetoric issuing from both governments has become increasingly bellicose. In order to show commitment, the U.S. has moved the 7th Fleet to the East China Sea and has sent across both ground reinforcements and munitions. Although a number of U.N. resolutions have been passed, condemning the belligerent moves, only the U.K. and the Australians offer more than vocal support. A U.K. Marine Commando is flown to Twenty-Nine Palms and two frigates sent from the Gulf. Australia offers a battalion of troops, a DDG, and two frigates.

This scenario was inspired by the situation depicted in the Sea of Dragons publication from Clash of Arms.

1.0 SitRep:

As part of the invasion plan for the Western Combined Army, a joint Marine and Special Forces regiment is to be inserted near the town of Sokch'o. The convoy will set out from Wonsan and will use darkness and the cover of the shoreline to achieve a safe transit. Contact with the enemy is to be avoided unless the safety of the transports is compromised.

Re: Harpoon 3 scenarios for the PlayersDB

The 33rd NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

Haiphong or Bust



This scenario is based upon an incident described in the book, Blind Man's Bluff, by Sontag and Drew.

"Submarine spying had received a boost in Kissinger's and Nixon's eyes in mid-1972, when U.S. surveillance subs detected one of the rare overt Soviet moves to intervene in the Vietnam War. Shortly after Nixon announced the mining of Haiphong Harbour, the Soviet Navy sent three Echo II subs toward Vietnam. After they were detected by U.S. subs, Washington sent a message to Moscow, essentially saying, send them back home or they're history. The subs left."

1.0 SitRep:

The pride of the fleet, the Kilo-class submarine Dear Leader, has been given orders to deploy from the Yellow Sea. Any target deemed valuable enough is to be sunk without question. Enemy warships are a priority, especially those believed to be engaged in the anti-ballistic missile mission.

The commander could not believe his luck when he got a strong ESM 'cut' on an AEgis radar.

The 39th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

2.0 Test of Nerves



"With the continuing escalation of skirmishing in the Baltic between Russia and Germany, tensions were rising worldwide. As long as the conflict remained in the Baltic, most other nations were willing to wait and watch. Once events turned against the Russians, reinforcements were brought in from the Russian Northern Fleet. This altered the situation and the NATO allies were compelled to assist the Germans, as required by the Treaty."

Re: Harpoon 3 scenarios for the PlayersDB

The 45th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

Warhead


The three most powerful men in the world are:

The President of the United States,
the Premier of the Soviet Union, and
the Captain of a ballistic missile submarine.

The Blue Crew of the SSBN Michigan won the annual Fleet Achievement Award. As a reward, the Navy paid for their family members to join them in Scotland. The homeward flight was hijacked enroute and diverted to Beida, Libya.

A Marine Expeditionary Unit - Special Operations Capable - and elements of Detachment Delta is sitting offshore awaiting permission to enter Libya in order to liberate the aircraft and occupants. Meanwhile, negotiations continue and hostages are being shot every six hours.

After the third hostage was murdered, an uncoded message was transmitted from the Michigan and recorded by several international agencies.

"To the President of the United States

Believing the Soviet demand that negotiations at Beida be conducted only by a United Nations team to be an inhuman and criminal political manoeuvre precluding swift and safe release of our families, we, the majority of the officers and crew of the USS Michigan do hereby serve warning upon the Soviet Union. Unless our families are released unharmed by 2400GMT 7 August, we will launch a Trident missile.

Mike Dawson, Commanding"

This scenario was inspired by the F. Robert Baker novel, "Warhead", Bantam Books, 1981.

White Phoenix


CVBG Roosevelt has been conducting Exercise Nordic Spring with Norwegian units over a series of weeks. One final graduation exercise is underweigh before we head to Scotland for much needed rest and recration.

The scenario was created to simulate a key event in the comic-book "The Witching Hour" currently being written by Vincenzo Beretta. It is not supposed to be "fair" :)

Warning: "Solo i giocatori con Dio dalla loro parte possono vincere questo scenario." (Only players touched by God can win this scenario.)

14.0 A Friend in Need


Sea of Dragons Battleset - Two Brothers - China invades Taiwan

China flexes its muscles with lots of exercises around Taiwan. Although diplomatic objections are raised by a number of nations, the exercises continue. Then, the PRC declares a maritime blockade: any ships entering the waters around Taiwan will be stopped and 'contraband' goods confiscated. 'Contraband' is loosely defined, but vessels carrying coal, oil, and LNG would appear to be favoured targets.

As coal, oil, and LNG stocks fall, the Taiwanese navy starts to escort convoys through the blockade zone. Then, something goes wrong. A convoy is intercepted and somebody fires on someone they shouldn't have. The PRC immediately launches an invasion fleet.

This scenario was inspired by the situation depicted in the Sea of Dragons publication from Clash of Arms.

6.0 Libyan Skirmish US SAG v. Libya


Libya's Colonel Khadaffi attempts to coerce U.S. policy by repeated terrorist acts. The American people demand justice and even Congress extended "corrective actions." A U.S. show of force in the Gulf of Sidra is just beginning to coalesce, when the Libyans strike first.

This scenario is a re-make of a Harpoon Classic scenario and has been re-made with the consent of AGSI.

Argo (Redux)


"Ex-fils are like abortions. You don't want to need one but when you do, you don't do it yourself."

- Tony Mendez, ex-filtration specialist

L.A. Times reporter: "What does Argo mean?"
Lester Siegel: "It means, Argo f*** yourself"

A top Iranian scientist within the nuclear energy enrichment program has been amassing information for years. He has the smoking gun and has contacted the CIA for extraction to the West out of fear for his life and those of his family. His intelligence is deemed invaluable and could save incalculable lives when it comes time to neutralize those facilities.

Over the weekend, the scientist and his family have sought refuge in the Italian ambassador's residence. Come Monday, his absence will be noticed. A CIA "Moses" operative has flown into Teheran to extract him and his family.

"There are only bad options. It's about finding the best one."
- Tony Mendez

A CIA ex-filtration specialist, codename "Vincenzo", has flown into Teheran under the guise of a comic book writer supposedly working on a Persian-friendly response to the comic book, "300", by Frank Miller. He has been warmly received by the Iranian Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance for his efforts to correct the mis-representation of Persian history and cultural traditions.

This scenario was inspired by the motion picture Argo (2012).

20.0 Malvinas III (2012)



After normalisation of the relationship between Argentina and Britain in the 90s, tension returned in 2012. Economic pressures and publication of 30-year old secret documents fueled nationalism in both countries.

The press was rife with "analysis" of how the retirement of Britain's carriers and Harriers would make fighting a new Falkland war impossible. Opposing views held that the ground-based radars, Typhoons, and permanent presence of 1200 infantry and SAMs (vs 60 marines in 1982) as well as the presence of Royal Navy ships would either deter or defeat invaders until reinforcements arrived by air.

Re: Harpoon 3 scenarios for the PlayersDB

The Pueblo Incident



"A sterner test of Phase One morale occurred during the first half of March 1968. Following the seizure of the USS Pueblo, two carriers with their screens were sent far north to the Sea of Japan. A contingency plan was invoked that committed the Enterprise and Ticonderoga to launch air strikes against North Korean airfields.

Air Force planes in South Korea were to have coordinated with the two navy air wings, but it was still a vastly lopsided proposition. The carriers were assigned seven airfields at which were based more than two hundred MiGs. Intelligence briefings detailed the enemy order of battle: ninety-one MiG-21s, seventy-six MiG-17s, and thirty-five MiG-19s. It was estimated that at least half the North Korean fighter force would be airborne by the time the strikes arrived. Against this, we had twenty operational Phantoms and eighteen Crusaders to escort the strike birds.

The fighters were spread mighty thin. One target was to be struck by ten A-4s escorted by a pair of F-8s.

Nobody slept much that night. A good many farewell letters were written in expectation of the worst, though "the worst" varied from one man to another, according to his outlook. If forced down alive, the pilots knew they faced brutal captivity in a land ruled by barbarians. A safe bailout into the sea was only marginally more attractive -- the water was studded with ice, and even in "poopy suits" survival would be measured in minutes.

Yet nobody backed out. Launch was scheduled for 0600, and at 0430 aircrews were suiting up or eating breakfast. The briefings were grim. There was absolutely no joking. But sometime before 0500 word came through that the mission was scrubbed. It was never known if political considerations swayed the decision makers in Washington, or if military reality forced itself upon them. In either case, two air wings heaved a collective sigh of relief.

But the point worth making is that morale held. Knowing the odds against returning were extremely slim, every pilot assigned to the strike would have manned his airplane and launched. They would rather died than looked bad."

Excerpt from "On Yankee Station -- The Naval Air War over Vietnam", pp. 36-7, Barrett Tillman, John B. Nichols, Naval Institute Press, 1987

10.0 Punch Through



Soviet Blitz Against Northern Defended Sea Lane

The Soviets desperately need to reduce the flow of supplies to NATO ground units fighting in Europe. With Keflavik in NATO hands, it is very difficult for the Soviets to conduct attacks against the defended sea lanes. The only way to make an impact on the re-supply effort is to attack both the escorts and the supporting bases en masse and then go after the merchants while the defenders are recovering.

20.0 Opening Shots [H3.6]



Sea of Dragons Battleset - The Chinese Sea

It did not take long for the full import of the U.S. withdrawal from the Philippines to become apparent. U.S. presence declined in the South China Sea and this allowed other navies greater freedom. The PLA(Navy), under strict orders from Beijing, stepped up its patrols around the Spratley archipelago. The Vietnamese and the Philippines vigorously protested this action, but not much was done to help them. By 1998, the Chinese felt confident enough to make a determined push for the whole of the island chain. By controlling the Spratleys, the PLA(Navy) would be in position to threaten busy shipping routes; the forces assigned there would also cover the Chinese invasion of the Philippines. Once the Philippines had fallen, no one would be able to oust the Chinese from their sea.

Much was carried out to ensure the smooth running of the initial stages of the operation. Vietnam was bribed into hamstringing the ASEAN response and the Philippine communist insurgency was expanded and financed by the PRC. Chinese Special Forces were clandestinely inserted to advise the guerrillas. All that was needed was a spark.

This scenario was inspired by the situation depicted in the Sea of Dragons publication from Clash of Arms.

1.0 SitRep:

It has been decided that a flotilla of our ships will exercise near the Palawan Passage. This will demonstrate our ability and willingness to back up our claims.

2.0 Intelligence:

Palawan HQ has received reports of an unknown Chinese ship lurking near the oilfields. Her intentions are inscrutable.

3.0 Orders:

As part of Exercise Shining Land, practice the interception of smuggling vessels. If the opportunity arises, put your training into practice.

Protect the oil platforms of the area by boarding and inspecting any suspicious vessels.

02.1 First Moves - Night Action ANW



Sea of Dragons Battleset - Korean Standoff

"Under the situation where a war may break out any moment, there is no need to keep north-south military communications," the head of a North Korean delegation told the South by telephone Wednesday, according to the North's state-run Korean Central News Agency.

There are several hotlines between North and South Korea. Earlier this month, Pyongyang disconnected a Red Cross hotline that ran through the border village of Panmunjom and was used by officials on both sides, according to the South Korean Unification Ministry.

http://edition.cnn.com/2013/03/27/world/asia/north-korea-threats/index.html?hpt=hp_t1

A period of rising tension, sparked by the U.S. announcement for withdrawal of the 2nd Division, has characterized relations between North and South Korea. Border incursions by North Korean special forces have increased and several acts of terrorism, carried out in strategic cities (e.g. the destruction of Pusan's main railway signaling centre), have been identified as occurring under North Korean instructions. The rhetoric issuing from both governments has become increasingly bellicose. In order to show commitment, the U.S. has moved the 7th Fleet to the East China Sea and has sent across both ground reinforcements and munitions. Although a number of U.N. resolutions have been passed, condemning the belligerent moves, only the U.K. and the Australians offer more than vocal support. A U.K. Marine Commando is flown to Twenty-Nine Palms and two frigates sent from the Gulf. Australia offers a battalion of troops, a DDG, and two frigates.

This scenario was inspired by the situation depicted in the Sea of Dragons publication from Clash of Arms.

1.0 SitRep:

As part of the invasion plan for the Western Combined Army, a joint Marine and Special Forces regiment is to be inserted near the town of Sokch'o. The convoy will set out from Wonsan and will use darkness and the cover of the shoreline to achieve a safe transit. Contact with the enemy is to be avoided unless the safety of the transports is compromised.

2.0 Intelligence:

You are approximately 90nm North of the landing beach. Your orders were to set sail just after dusk and you have made good time. You are steaming under radio silence, but HQ is passing along information to you. No major enemy movements are suspected and intell indicates that several FAC [Fast Attack Craft] are out on patrol. They are patrolling singly and not as a group. You should be able to overcome any enemy forces with ease. However, your orders are clear: you are not to actively engage enemy forces, but to deliver your charges safely. If the road is cut, then the ROK divisions will be trapped and easy to destroy. A number of fishing boats have been positioned near your route to act as decoys and confuse enemy spies.
