Re: PlayersDB for Harpoon

The 5th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

12.0 Operations Plan 220-90



This scenario is an interpretation of the account from Michael A. Palmer's, "The War that Never Was".

"OPLAN 220-90 called for U.S. forces throughout the Pacific Command (PACOM) to initiate conventional offensive and defensive operations against Soviet units and against the Soviet Union itself. The plan assumed that neither power, at least initially, would have the assistance of its allies, other than the use of foreign facilities, such as Soviet bases in Vietnam and American bases in Japan, South Korea, and the Philippines."

"Thus, on D-Day the Soviets began not a military, but diplomatic and public affairs offensives in Japan, South Korea, the Philippines, Singapore, Indonesia, and Taiwan. Soviet diplomats entreated and threatened each of these countries to remain neutral and to forbid the operations of American forces from their soil. Other Soviet officials, local communists, and their supporters initiated campaigns designed to divide public opinion and to persuade East Asians that they ought not to allow themselves to be dragged into a European war by the United States."

"The Soviets gained even greater success on D Day in the North Pacific. Several hours before hostilities began, Bear reconnaissance aircraft located four American frigates convoying six container ships about nine hundred miles southeast of Hokkaido along the Seattle-Yokohama sealift route. Throughout the morning and early afternoon, the Pacific Fleet KPF vectored air, surface, and subsurface assets -- the Novorossiysk-Kalinin group, a Foxtrot, an Akula, and SNA Backfires and Badgers -- into strike positions. The attacks began at 1330 and lasted for three hours. All ten American ships were sunk. The Soviets lost neither a ship, a plane, nor a submarine. ADM Ushakov saw the sharp engagement as a vindication of his strategic ideas for Pacific operations. 'This battle was,' he reported to the general staff, 'a classic example of our combined naval doctrine and the most successful engagement fought by our naval forces on D Day, anywhere.

For CINCPAC, the convoy debacle was one of those events in life that suddenly bring everything into sharp focus. The loss of the container ships, loaded with ordnance and spare parts for air force squadrons in Japan, placed an immediate burden on American air transport assets which had to be shifted from other missions to fly supplies to the western Pacific. The Soviet success also demonstrated the dangers of operating without air cover. ADM Cooper immediately saw the wisdom of ADM Jernigan's strategy. Allied land-based air assets in South Korea and Japan blocked the movement of Soviet strike aircraft to the south and to the east. Their only way out was to the north -- between Hokkaido and Kamchatka. The only way to plug the gap was with naval air. Fortunately, Jernigan has his carriers closing in perfectly -- the Kitty Hawk coming down from the Aleutians, and the Independence coming up from Yokosuka. But Cooper remained concerned: could two carriers fight their way into the gap and close it?"

Re: PlayersDB for Harpoon

The 6th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

1.0 No One Bosses the Maidan



"The crisis began in Nov 2013 when President Yanukovych's cabinet announced that it was abandoning an agreement that would strengthen trade ties with the EU. The government later sought closer ties with Russia.

Anti-government protesters, who supported closer ties with the EU, called for the resignation of President Yanukovych and early elections.

[snip]

As the violence escalated, the Ukrainian parliament voted to overthrow President Yanukovych and he fled over the border into Russia."

The 9th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

2.0 Turnabout is Fair Play



"Two US warships have arrived in the Black Sea and will stand ready to offer assistance in the case of a security emergency at the Sochi Olympic games, officials said Wednesday.

The USS Mount Whitney, a command vessel for the Navy's 6th Fleet in the Mediterranean, arrived on Tuesday after departing its port in Naples, Italy, over the weekend, officials said.

[snip]

The second ship, the USS Taylor, is a frigate that arrived in the area on Wednesday, carrying a crew of about 200 sailors."

DefenseNews, Feb 5, 2014


"U.S. Navy said Thursday its guided-missile destroyer USS Truxtun was on its way to the Black Sea for combined training and security cooperation operations.

The Arleigh Burke-class destroyer left its port in Souda Bay, on the northwest coast of Greece, to conduct drills in the Black Sea with Romanian and Bulgarian forces.

Lt. Shawn Eklund, a Navy spokesman, told Stars and Stripes the deployment wasn't related to Russian military activity in Ukraine.

'Truxtun's operations in the Black Sea were scheduled well in advance,' he said in an interview published Thursday."

United Press International [UPI], 6 Mar 2014


"The Turkish Air Force scrambled six F-16 fighter jets after a Russian surveillance plane flew parallel along its Black Sea coast, the military said on Friday, amid increased tensions between Russia and the West over Ukraine.

The incident, the second of its kind reported this week, occurred on Thursday. The Russian plane remained in international airspace, according to a statement on the website of the military General Staff."

Reuters, 7 March, 2014


"In the name of all coaches and other members of the athletes' entourage, I promise that we shall commit ourselves to ensuring that the spirit of sportsmanship and fair play is fully adhered to and upheld in accordance with the fundamental principles of Olympism."

Olympic Oath, 7 March, 2014


**** Top Secret **** Eyes Only ****

Fr: Marshal Tarkin,
Black Sea TVD
To: Cmdr. Konstantin Vadr,
SSK Alrosa

1.0 SitRep:

The cowardly Ukrainians attacked a vessel attempting to convey the rightful President of the Ukraine to safety in the Motherland. Even now, they brazenly flout our rightful and legitimate authority to protect the interests of ethnic Russians in the Crimea.

To add insult to injury, their corrupt former Prime Minister, Yulia Tymoshenko, derisively dubbed 'The Princess' by Crimean Russians, thumbs her nose at the might and authority of President Putin by attending the opening ceremonies of the Sochi Special Olympics.

The meddlesome Americans have ordered their ships back to the coast of Sochi ostensibly to provide 'assistance in the case of a security emergency' at the Games. Although in international waters, their presence lends support to the usurpers of the Orange Revolution.

2.0 Intelligence:

U.S. Sixth Fleet units consisting of LCC Mount Whitney, FF Taylor, and DDG Truxtun are deployed in the Black Sea. The 'Princess' is leaving Sochi and plans to meet with General Obie Juan aboard the LCC Mt. Whitney to discuss possible deployment of U.S. troops in the Crimea.

Following our legitimate and reasonable reconnaissance patrols and probes along the Turkish Black Sea border, several Turkish naval vessels have deployed on sovereignty patrols and increased their alert status.

3.0 Orders:

By direct order of President Putin, Alrosa is hereby directed to sink the vessel carrying 'The Princess'. She has boarded the Spanish-flagged merchant vessel, Millenium Halcon, for rendezvous with the Mt. Whitney.

Since the Ukrainians covertly attacked President Yanukovych, turnabout is only fair play, especially in the presence of the Olympics. Sink the Millenium Halcon while maintaining plausible deniability for the Kremlin.

The 10th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

3.0 Hetman Homecoming



"Ukraine's Navy flagship, the Hetman Sahaidachny frigate, has reportedly refused to follow orders from Kiev, and come over to Russia's side and is returning home after taking part in NATO operation in the Gulf of Aden flying the Russian naval flag.

[snip]

'Ukraine's Navy flagship the Hetman Sahaidachny has come over to our side today. It has hung out the St. Andrew's flag,' Senator Igor Morozov, a member of the committee on international affairs, told Izvestia daily."

RT News, Mar 01, 2014


"Rear Admiral Andriy Tarasov, Commander of National Contingent, informed the frigate would head home to Ukraine, soon. 'Ukrainian servicemen serve for the Ukrainian people and sail under the Ukrainian flag,' he underlined.

The announcement comes in the wake of media reports that the frigate refused to follow orders from Kiev, and come over to Russia's side."

NavalToday.com, Mar 04, 2014


"NATO is to deploy reconnaissance planes in Poland and Romania to monitor the Ukrainian crisis."

BBC News, Europe, Mar 10, 2014


"According to eye witness reports and local media in Crimea, Russia deployed Bastion mobile coastal missile system to Sevastopol in night of 8 to 9 March. Several witnesses recorded the movement of Bastion anti-ship launcher complex on streets Crimea."

Stand-off in Feodosiya

Ukrainian Marines vow to fight to the last man.

"Ukrainian AF Still in Control of Crimean Air Space

'The Radio Technical Troops of Air Force of Ukrainian Armed forces have capacities and capabilities to control the whole air space over Crimea and water space of the Black Sea, and the Command Centre of the Air Force has capacities and capabilities to monitor air situation over peninsula territory, respectively, and control air traffic of all aircrafts,' Col.

"Ukraine authorises soldier to 'fight back' after troops storm bases in Crimea; two dead in fighting

UKRAINE'S leadership simmered with a mix of hopelessness and anger at losing Crimea, tempering an influx of eager young men signing up as reservists with the growing certainty that no saviour would deliver them from the Russian takeover."

"Pro-Russian forces have taken control of two naval bases in Crimea - including the HQ of Ukraine's navy."

Odessa Naval HQ
To: Gen. Dodonna,
Crimean AF HQ, Karankut
CC: General Willard,
204th Tactical Aviation Bde,
- Red Flight Leader
- Gold Flight Leader

1.0 SitRep:

The Russians have seized Kirovskoe, Belbek, and Saki bases. The Marines at Feodosiya vow to fight to the last man. This is the darkest time for the nation. Russian forces are expected to seize Oktyabrskoye and Karankut bases within the day.

The 204th Tactical Aviation Brigade has been grounded for the past month to prevent any accidental confrontation in order to avoid bloodshed. This has been in vain as brave Ukrainian soldiers are now dying. However, the time spent on the ground has not been wasted as every aircraft has undergone intensive maintainance and is now 100% ready for combat.

A naval confrontation between NATO and Russia broke out in the Black Sea. A NATO surface group consisting of Turkish, Romanian, Bulgarian, and American vessels was annihilated by Russian forces led by the Slava-class cruiser, Moskva. NATO has dubbed her "The Death Star".

2.0 Intelligence:

The Moskva expended all her surface-to-surface missiles in the battle and most of her SAMs, too. She has returned to port and is working feverishly to replenish her magazines. She is currently vulnerable and relies upon defences provided by other units.

The Russians do not consider small one-man fighters armed with cluster munitions to be any threat.

3.0 Orders:

Sink the Moskva before she can complete her replenishment.

Priority One. All other priorities rescinded.

The Moskva is heavily defended and carries the firepower greater than half the Black Sea Fleet. Its defences are designed around a large-scale assault. The approach will not be easy. A low-level attack profile will minimize your exposure. Skim the surface to the release point.

The available bombs, rockets, and cluster munitions have a theoretical range of 2 nautical miles. However, the closer they are to the target when released, the more effective they will be.

The Western nations are on the fence regarding the Ukraine as it has not shown any willingness to fight for her own sovereignty. The 204th Tactical Aviation Bde must demonstrate that resolve.

All other bases are openly displaying passiveness in order to mis-lead the Russians into believing that their illegal annexation will be accepted without opposition.

4.0 Rules of Engagement:

Warning Level Red, Weapons Free.

Engage all Russian units at your discretion. Primary target is Moskva.

Order 937
Priority One:
Ensure destruction of Moskva
All other considerations secondary

Re: PlayersDB for Harpoon

The 13th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

Marianas Sunrise



Inspired by fictional events depicted in Tom Clancy's, "Debt of Honor".

In eastern Tennessee, a car accident involving two Japanese-made vehicles leads to the deaths of six people. Revelations about manufacturing and shipping errors that led to the accident stir long-standing resentment toward Japan's trade policies.

As trade negotiations between the United States and Japan come to a halt, Congress passes legislation allowing the US to replicate trade practices of the countries from which it imports goods. This immediately cuts off US export markets, threatening the Japanese economy.

Facing an economic crisis, Japan's ruling corporate cabal decides to take military action against the United States. Supported covertly by India and China, they plot to curtail the American presence in the Pacific.

Japan launches phase one of its assault, sending Self-Defense Force units to occupy the Marianas Islands, specifically Saipan.

The invasion, conducted with commercial airliners is virtually bloodless.

Elsewhere, during a joint military exercise, Japanese ships "accidentally" launch torpedoes at the US Pacific Fleet, destroying two submarines and crippling two aircraft carriers (Enterprise and John C. Stennis).

US naval capability in the western Pacific is drastically reduced.

Immediate retaliation is delayed by phase two of the Japanese offensive: an economic attack.

As the military offensive begins, Japan engineers the collapse of the US stock market by hiring a programmer who is also a consultant for an exchange firm, tasked with inserting a logic bomb into the system.

When triggered, the computer program blocks the storage of all trade records made after noon on Friday.

The Japanese also attempt to take the life of the Federal Reserve chairman, however he survives the attack with a broken back.

America now faces a massive economic crisis of their own and subsequent mass panic. The Japanese hope the Americans will be too distracted to quickly respond to Japan's military actions.

Re: PlayersDB for Harpoon

The 14th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

9.0 Lock-On



This scenario is an interpretation of the account from Michael A. Palmer's, "The War that Never Was".

"Responsibility for the defense of western Libya-Tripolitania--rested primarily with the Libyan air arm. It was, on paper, a substantial force of more than 550 combat aircraft. But over 400 planes were in storage and many of the rest were flown by Syrian, North Korean, or Russian pilots. (The Soviets also controlled the extensive Libyan air defense system.) There were only about 75 fighters--miserable Su-20 Fitters and nearly obsolescent MiG-23 Floggers--combat ready in Tripolitania on the morning of D-Day. The Soviets promised to supply pilots and to fly in additional aircraft in the event of a crisis. But in the midst of a global war, neither the Soviet Union nor any of its surrogates could afford to send hundreds of skilled pilots to Libya.

Over 200 NATO fighters and attack aircraft were available to "take on" the Libyans during the 14th. Rear Admiral Byrnes's Kennedy task group alone carried 86 aircraft including 20 F-14A Tomcats, 20 F/A-18 Hornets, and 20 A-6E Intruders, a force numerically equal, and qualitatively superior to the Libyan forces based around Tripoli. The dozen AV-8B Harriers on the Italian carrier Garibaldi, and the 16 Super Etendards and 10 Vought F-8E Crusaders of the French carrier Foch would be available to support the Kennedy's operations. NATO land-based air assets in Sicily included a dozen USMC F/A-18 Hornets at Sigonella, 32 F-16A Falcons of the USAF's 401 Tactical Fighter Wing (TFW), 612th Tactical Fighter Squadron, at Comiso (the wing's 613th and 614th TFSs were scheduled to arrive on the 15th and 16 respectively), 32 Italian F-104G Starfighters of 37 Stormo at Trapani, and 30 G 91Ys of 32 Stormo that had staged from their base at Brindisi to Cantania."

Re: PlayersDB for Harpoon

The 18th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

10.0 Soviet Indian Ocean Squadron



This scenario is an interpretation of the account from Michael A. Palmer's, "The War that Never Was".

"The campaign against Libya was but one of several waged within the US Central Command's area of responsibility (AOR). On the morning of 14 July, all hell broke loose from the Red Sea to the Strait of Malacca. Four Russian "tankers" began dropping mines in the shipping channels of the Persian Gulf, while Soviet aircraft, surface combatants, and submarines staged dramatic attacks against Allied and neutral ships."

030000Z Hostilities between NATO and Warsaw Pact forces initiated.

Warsaw Pact declares unrestricted warfare on all vessels sailing under NATO flags but promises to respect the sovereignty of neutral nations and encourages all vessels not involved in the conflict to seek safe haven in port so that 'unforeseen and accidental incidents' do not occur. Most commercial vessels heed the call and sit at anchorage.

Most nations within the Persian Gulf and Indian Ocean are maintaining their neutrality and state that they intend to defend their borders against all incursions. Forward deployment of U.S. assets not possible at this time.

Re: PlayersDB for Harpoon

The 19th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

Operation StormCloud



NATO vs USSR

LOCATION: Arctic Circle
TIME: 5 January 2017, 0400 GMT

Mikhail Gorbachev's removal from power during a coup by the army, and his subsequent execution at the hands of the KGB, led to a Soviet government that became even more insular than it had already been. Protests following Gorbachev's death were swiftly put down, and once elements of the Soviet government that had previously supported him had been forced to re-embrace traditional party values, the government was able to focus on re-establishing the arms programs that Gorbachev had tried to dissolve.
The situation was not received well in Europe or the USA, and continued to escalate over the next few decades. Russia began exerting additional pressure on shipping in the Arctic Circle, claiming sovereignty over waters that had previously been open to all nations. When Soviet vessels fired on Norwegian ships, sinking them with all hands, the matter was suppressed despite the British Special Boat Service (SBS) finding evidence that proved Russian involvement in an incident which was blamed on malfunctioning GPS equipment, engine fires, inclement conditions and any other reason that could be produced in an attempt to prevent an all out war.
To try and prevent any further raids of this type occurring again, NATO ships began moving north and taking up positions around the ice pack. Royal Navy and US Navy submarines began patrolling these waters with renewed awareness. The situation came to an inevitable head when an over-zealous NATO fighter pilot fired on a Soviet sub that was forced to surface after engine trouble, in close proximity to a NATO convoy. The sub was reported as sunk by the pilot, but repercussions from the Soviets were not far behind. NATO agents in Russia reported that a high amount of traffic around the docks in Nenelsia and Yamalia, with all SSSR crews being called back to their vessels. All contact was lost with NATO agents in Russia, and their fate can only be guessed at.

Re: PlayersDB for Harpoon

The 24th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

11.0 Turkey Trots to Water



This scenario is an interpretation of the account from Michael A. Palmer's, "The War that Never Was".

"In response, Seventh Fleet had concentrated formidable amphibious assets in WESTPAC. A sizable task force had concentrated at Okinawa -- fourteen ships capable of lifting twelve thousand marines of III MEF. Maritime Prepositioning Ships Squadron 3 lay anchored at Guam, loaded with equipment for 1 MEB, based in Hawaii (the 3rd Marines). A six-ship convoy carrying additional equipment and supplies for the marines was at sea about 750 miles south of Okinawa. If the Independence group moved north, only about a dozen frigates, an SSN, and three squadrons of patrol aircraft would remain to protect these assets.

Cooper also worried that the Soviets might move their remaining surface assets from Vladivostok through the Tsushima Strait between Japan and Korea, link up with their KUG already in the East China Sea, and 'devastate our poorly screened amphibious forces as they clear Okinawa.' On the morning of 13 July, CINCPAC received a report from Japanese intelligence sources that a task force including the carrier Baku, two cruisers, a destroyer, four frigates, and several replenishment vessels would shortly depart Vladivostok. Unless the Japanese and South Koreans intervened, only limited American forces -- the four marine squadrons at Iwakuni, Japan, the SSN Tunny, and the old diesel boat Barbel -- were positioned to prevent a Soviet move through the Tsushima Strait.

Despite his concerns, CINCPAC deferred to his subordinate's judgement. To Cooper's mind, Jernigan was responsible for operations in WESTPAC, and the decision was his call. Either choice involved risks, grave risks. No one knew what the Russians were going to do, or for that matter the Japanese or Koreans, north or south. But Cooper was a proponent of what he considered a cherished naval principle -- the initiative of the subordinate, trust and confidence. Cooper had no wish to overrule a subordinate's decision, especially one of his first decisions of a campaign. Cooper had known Jernigan for twenty years and had complete faith in him. So the Indy went north, not south."

"Shortly after 1100 Tokyo time (1500 at Pearl), reports of air battles over the Sea of Japan began to reach LTG James Bridges, Commander Fifth Air Force at his headquarters in Yokota, Japan. To the north, American F-16 Falcons of the 432nd Tactical Fighter Wing (TFW), based at Misawa in northern Honshu, and to the south, F/A-18 Hornets of Marine Aircraft Group 15, based at Iwakuni, engaged Soviet MiGs and Sukhois in aerial duels to control the air space to the west of the Japanese home islands. The marine and air force pilots found themselves outnumbered and hard pressed. At 1355, Bridges called GEN Henry Eustace, Commander, Pacific Air Forces, at Hickam AFB, Hawaii, over a secure telephone line and requested the release of the two squadrons of F-15 Eagles based at Kadena, Okinawa, which had heretofore been restricted to CAP missions between Japan and Taiwan. Bridges also recommended that Seventh Air Force assets in South Korea be fed into the battle. Eustace promptly gave Bridges complete authority over the 18th TFW at Kadena, but, fearing a North Korean attack across the DMZ, PACAIRFOR, with CINCPAC's approval, continued to hold the South Korea-based Seventh Air Force's 314th Air Division in reserve."

Re: PlayersDB for Harpoon

The 28th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

3.0 Baltic Brawl



"Russian nationalist fervor grew worse and more aggressive. Thwarted in her attempts to intimidate Poland because of tacit NATO assistance, Russia looked to Sweden in its search for expansion and a politically vital diversion. This time, the dispute was over Gotland Island, which Russia claimed as an ancient Tsarist territory that a 'free' Russia, (free of Communism, that is) wanted back. Sweden denied any such claim and both sides began sending patrol craft into the waters around Gotland to reinforce their positions."

Duration: 24 hours

This scenario was inspired by the situation described in the Harpoon 4.1 Rules from Clash of Arms.

ZZZZZZ 020000Z5Sep97 ZZZZZZ

1.0 SitRep:

Both Sweden and Russia have increased the number of patrols in the disputed area. As the number of ships increase in a confined area, they are bound to meet and engage one another.

2.0 Intelligence:

HumInt sources report that a squadron of Spica-class missile boats and a pair of Goteborg-class vessels are absent from their customary piers.

3.0 Orders:

Enforce the Kremlin's claim to the waters around Gotland Island. Find and sink any Swedish units inside territorial waters claimed by Russia. Protect the DDG from loss.

4.0 Rules of Engagement:

Warning level Red, Weapons Free

Engage all Swedish naval vessels in the vicinity of Gotland Island. Do not endanger neutrals.

Re: PlayersDB for Harpoon

The 29th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

This scenario is in direct response to a request from:

Woolen Horde

$80 is also a bit too steep for my tastes, but if someone redoes the fictional modern day US Civil War scenario from Harpoon, I'm in. CVBG vs CVBG, but the North has stealth fighters!
http://www.quartertothree.com/game-talk/showthread.php?75912-Command-Modern-Air-Naval-Operations-(-quot-The-Harpoon-that-Never-Was-quot-)/page2&p=3646749#post3646749
And is dedicated to Tom Chick, long-time friend of the wargame community and a card-carrying Harpoon player. Get well soon, Tom.

The Second War Between the States



The Wilderness did not go well. The Confederate forces managed, though with great difficulty, to entrap the Union army in a ring of fire which closed in on the troops in an image of destruction unheard of previously in the War. The battle had an incredible impact on the population of the North. When mothers and fathers realized their sons had died under the merciless flames set by Southern hands, they no longer desired to keep "people like that" in their beloved Union. The peace treaty was shortly to follow.

But, in the end, both the USA and the CSA had the same national history, and similar desires, goals, and concerns. By 1875, a defensive pact was established between the two nations. Technology was shared and developed, the War soon became forgotten. Even the abhorred slavery issue died off with the development of technologies which led the institution of slavery into retirement. Machines could complete the tasks slaves had done in shorter times and without food and housing.

The continent of North America boomed. World War I came and went, Russia turned communist, and World War II left the world in ruins -- except for the USA and the CSA.

The shared technology system worked for both nations -- until the USA discovered stealth technology. This, the northern nation decided, should not be shared. In the end, they thought, even the South might be a potential enemy. And, when the CSA learned of this violation of the treaty, the South did, indeed, become an enemy. Obviously, there were issues unresolved in the last War between them. Such issues would be resolved now.

The 31st NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

4.0 Non-Nuclear Nuclear Dispute



"India continued to resist international pressure to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Britain and the United States pressed for economic sanctions to force India to cooperate. In retaliation, several British and American nationals were arrested and a mob stormed the British Embassy resulting in numerous British casualties. In response, a British Task Force has been sent to provide a demonstration of strength off the Indian coast. The Indian reaction to British warships in their waters has not been calm."

Re: PlayersDB for Harpoon

The 37th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

06.0 First Convoy



Act I: Onslaught

"In a carefully planned series of attacks, the Warsaw Pact begins a war against NATO. Their goal is to seize West Germany, gutting NATO militarily and economically. The Soviets will demand a high price for Germany's return, or assimilate its industry and technology for their own use."

"Large scale strikes by Soviet Naval Aviation (SNA) on NATO port facilities and energy infrastructure slow reinforcements and disrupt transportation.

Spetsnaz attacks further disrupt transportation and communications lines. One group, landing in Norway, cuts a critical North-South reinforcement highway. Soviet forces, landing near Tromso, Norway, rapidly secure the northern third of the country, then head south.

Keflavik, Iceland, a vital base for maritime patrol aircraft and fighters as well as a SOSUS station, is pounded by land-attack SS-N-3s from Echo II-class SSGNs. Using a combination of fuel-air-explosive and persistent chemical warheads, this vital base is neutralized for the critical opening phase of the war. By the time it recovers, the Russians figure it won't matter.

The first few days of the war find the Soviets advancing through Europe and NATO reeling. Decision-makers in Washington, London, and Paris must decide whether or not to use nuclear weapons to redress the imbalance."

"The Battle of Reforger begins. Convoys carrying supplies and reinforcements to Europe are attacked by Soviet subs and SNA aircraft. Dozens of long-range aircraft launch high-altitude standoff missiles against warship formations and convoys. With one-ton high explosive warheads crashing into ships at supersonic speeds, one hit can sink almost any vessel. Fortunately, the initial Soviet attacks are poorly coordinated, which allow the convoy escorts the time they need to get organized.

The battle across the European plain is consuming men and material at a rate far in excess of all pre-war predictions. The Soviet 8th Guards Army has been relentless and NATO forces are nearing the breaking point. Reinforcements and re-supply are desperately needed. REFORGER units are flying in and marrying up with their pre-positioned assets. As more personnel assets reached Germany, they have been assigned piecemeal as replacements to units already in the field.

Soviet naval forces have concluded a series of attacks against NATO air installations in Iceland. It is not expected that Icelandic operations will be re-constituted in the near term. The Soviets have launched a pair of RORSats and now have significant surveillance capabilities. It should be expected that the Soviets would be aware of the location with a two hour delay of any NATO forces at sea.

SNA has been conducting naval strike operations from a number of airfields. Subordinated to the 5th Naval Air Reconnaissance Division (MRAD) are three long-range maritime strike regiments (MRAP). The 574th MRAP, a composite Tu-22M unit, has been operating from the Lakhta airfield near Arkhangel'sk. The 924th MRAP is operating its Tu-22Ms from the Olen'ya (Olenegorsk) airfield. The 987th MRAP is comprised solely of Tu-16s and flies from Severomorsk airdrome. Both Severomorsk and Olenegorsk are near Murmansk.

Multiple nuclear-powered submarines were reported by SOSUS before it went off-line. These contacts were in transit crossing the Norwegian Sea at high speed and will likely assume patrol stations along the convoy's expected line of advance. One Oscar SSGN was detected as well as a pair of Charlie II SSGNs."

Duration: 24 hours

***** Flash ***** Flash *****

SSSSSS 033000Z24May88 SSSSSS

1.0 SitRep:

The 24th Mechanized Division has been loaded aboard SL-7 fast cargo ships. They must reach the English Channel as quickly as possible. These ships are vital to the survival of the XVIII Corps and to the NATO line theatre-wide. Leyte Gulf and its task group (TG 20.41) are assigned to escort the first large convoy from the USA to Europe. SNA has not appeared yet and will likely attack in its full fury. Fighters are available, but a severe tanker shortage limits their numbers and their range. No significant airborne early warning assets are available.

Leyte Gulf and her consorts will be required to maintain their own radar coverage. The Saipan Amphibious Read Group (TG 22.1) and the 22nd Marine Amphibious Unit are vital to an upcoming operation. They must reach Great Britain intact. TG 22.1 will be sailing in the company of TG 20.4 for air defense support.

2.0 Intelligence:

Soviet Naval Aviation has not yet made its appearance, yet. Inclement weather over the Kola Peninsula has limited their operations. However, the weather has cleared and their presence will soon be felt.

3.0 Orders:

Ensure the safe arrival of both TGs 20.4 and 22.1 to RefPt UK.

Due to an upcoming operation, TG 20.4 must arrive at RefPt UK by 200000Z24May88 while TG 22.1 must arrive by 030000Z25May88. Upon arrival at RefPt UK, continue on towards the UK.

Detach AO Henry J. Kaiser from TG 20.4 and transfer it to TG 22.1 for the remainder of the journey.

Re: PlayersDB for Harpoon

The 3rd NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

15.0 Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors



This scenario is an interpretation of the account from Michael A. Palmer's, "The War that Never Was".

"On the fifteenth, Turner used the Kennedy, supported by the French carrier Foch and NATO land-based aircraft flying from Sicily and southern Italy, to continue the aerial offensive against enemy bases along the northern coast of Libya. Italian and American ASW groups, and French, Italian, and American submarines screened the carriers and allied amphibious task forces from Soviet and Libyan submarines.

A five-frigate ASW task force screening the southern flank of the NATO forces bore the brunt of Libyan and Soviet attacks during the fifteenth."

The 8th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

08.0 Rough Neighbourhood



"After a grueling week-long battle, the first reinforcement convoy arrives in England almost intact. Luckily, the Russian attacks are not well coordinated and the screen holds.

Rushed to the front, the reinforcements stabilize the situation, relieving NATO of having to use nuclear weapons. It does not give the West nearly enough strength to take the offensive.

Act II: The Hammer and Tongs

The Soviets are learning from their mistakes in the first week of the war, changing and refining their tactics. Later convoys have run into tougher opposition. They are also attacking Europe's transportation system, overloaded with supplies headed East and refugees headed West. It has begun to break down. The reinforcements and supplies, so desperately needed, pile up at the ports instead of reaching the front. These stockpiles are suffering at the hands of Soviet bombs and missiles."

"Another convoy is making the dangerous crossing. Opposition can be expected both from submarines and aircraft attacks from the Kola Peninsula."

The 10th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

10.0 Shadow - Interpretation of ROE



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.

1.0 SitRep:

The Politburo has decided that a display of maritime prowess is warranted to teach the Nationalists a lesson. With the USN increasingly absent from these waters, the blockade of Taiwan is possible and desirable. The PLA(N) will carry the torch of the revolution across the sea.

"After a grueling week-long battle, the first reinforcement convoy arrives in England almost intact. Luckily, the Russian attacks are not well coordinated and the screen holds.

Rushed to the front, the reinforcements stabilize the situation, relieving NATO of having to use nuclear weapons. It does not give the West nearly enough strength to take the offensive.

"NATO Command has decided to reduce the Soviet Boomer force by attrition to demonstrate resolve on the part of the alliance and to continue the fight even if the nuclear threshold is breached. Instead of deploying its ballistic missile subs into the open ocean or under the ice pack, the Soviets are holding them close, protecting them behind layers of surface ships, attack subs, and mine fields while planes from nearby bases fly top cover. This means the NATO submarine force has to stick its neck into the Bear's den to kill the boomers."

The 19th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

10.0 Kola Strike [1980]



"After a grueling week-long battle, the first reinforcement convoy arrives in England almost intact. Luckily, the Russian attacks are not well coordinated and the screen holds.

Rushed to the front, the reinforcements stabilize the situation, relieving NATO of having to use nuclear weapons. It does not give the West nearly enough strength to take the offensive.

Act II: The Hammer and Tongs

The Soviets are learning from their mistakes in the first week of the war, changing and refining their tactics. Later convoys have run into tougher opposition. They are also attacking Europe's transportation system, overloaded with supplies headed East and refugees headed West. It has begun to break down. The reinforcements and supplies, so desperately needed, pile up at the ports instead of reaching the front. These stockpiles are suffering at the hands of Soviet bombs and missiles."

"U.S. Navy plans in the 1980s were to meet the Soviet Northern Fleet head-on and hit the bases on the Kola Peninsula.

In 1980, there were limited numbers of PGMs (precision-guided munitions such as laser-guided bombs, high speed anti-radiation missiles and the like). None of the AEgis cruisers were in service yet.

By the late '80s, many of the weapons that made their appearance in the Gulf War were already in service in quantities needed to systematically take down an advanced air defense network and the installations that such a network tried to protect."

"Soviet Navy attacks on the convoys have hurt NATO badly. Fighting the Russians at sea is possible, but it is more productive to strike at the Soviet Navy's weak link -- its shore bases and support facilities. The Soviet Navy was designed as a "first salvo" force. In an extended campaign, their need to re-arm and repair (which they cannot do well at sea) makes their precious few shore bases an important target.

Using the bastion attacks as a distraction, two U.S. carriers have raced in to extreme range and will launch a single raid designed to destroy as much of the Northern Fleet's shore establishment as they can, short of using nuclear weapons."

11.0 Northern Aid


"After a grueling week-long battle, the first reinforcement convoy arrives in England almost intact. Luckily, the Russian attacks are not well coordinated and the screen holds.

Rushed to the front, the reinforcements stabilize the situation, relieving NATO of having to use nuclear weapons. It does not give the West nearly enough strength to take the offensive.

Act II: The Hammer and Tongs

The Soviets are learning from their mistakes in the first week of the war, changing and refining their tactics. Later convoys have run into tougher opposition. They are also attacking Europe's transportation system, overloaded with supplies headed East and refugees headed West. It has begun to break down. The reinforcements and supplies, so desperately needed, pile up at the ports instead of reaching the front. These stockpiles are suffering at the hands of Soviet bombs and missiles."

"The Soviet 1st Guards Army has made significant progress in their Norwegian campaign. Soviet air operations have been less than successful in stopping the Norwegian defense force from re-deploying south around Narvik. Soviet naval forces have made several attempts to blockade the southern sea-lanes, but RAF strike operations have managed to drive them back to the north. These sea lines are vital to future operations and must be protected at all costs. De-ciphered Soviet communications indicate the Soviets expect a large-scale withdrawal of Norwegian forces.

SACEur has determined that the best way to slow the Soviet advance on the European continent is to make a stand in Norway and force the Soviets to re-direct forces meant to support the Central Front.

The U.S. 24th Mechanized division is being unloaded in Wilhelmshaven, Germany. CentAG is holding the line, but just barely. The success of the Norwegian campaign is vital to the defense of Europe as a whole. If the Soviets are able to re-deploy the forces now operating in Norway, it is likely that NATO forces will be forced to give ground. All efforts must be made to support the Norwegian campaign.

The U.S. Navy had planned to provide an aircraft carrier to support the upcoming operation, but a disagreement between USS Theodore Roosevelt and a rock off Scapa Flow was won by the rock. TR is in dry-dock for the duration of this operation. Air support will be available from CVW-8, TR's air group operating from shore installations in northern UK.

SACEur believes that Soviet ground forces have been consuming supplies at a rapid rate. Co-ordinated air strikes against key transportation and logistical targets have aggravated their supply situation. A small group of tankers and supply ships have been photographed loading at the port of Murmansk. Its destination is unknown, but should be considered a high value target.

The Red Banner Northern Fleet appears to be focused on its Icelandic operations. Most major air and naval forces have been assigned to that operation in the assumption that the Norwegian operation is all but over.

The Baltic Fleet has remained stuck there, trying to force their way through the minefields. It is possible that a surface strike group may attempt to break out accomplishing both a flanking high-speed missile attack and a reinforcement of the Red Banner Northern Fleet. The Baltic Fleet has deployed a number of its SSKs that you are likely to encounter in the shallow waters off the Norwegian coast.

The pace of Soviet tactical air operations has also diminished over the last 24 hours. It is believed that a shortage of anti-radiation missiles have made the cost of penetrating Norwegian air defense too high."

This scenario was inspired by the situation described in the "High Tide" compilation from Clash of Arms.
