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.

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."

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

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.

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."

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."

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.

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."

"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."

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.

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.

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.

ZZZZZZ 060000Z4Jul88 ZZZZZZ

1.0 SitRep:

Northern Fleet SNA has been wildly successful in their attacks on NATO convoys. Some convoys barely survived with 50% casualties.

2.0 Intelligence:

Sources within western trade unions such as the merchant marine report significant dissent amongst members due to the high level of losses sustained from SNA strikes. Fifty percent casualties amongst convoy participants has become commonplace. The merchant mariner unions have lodged formal complaints and given notice that unless the situation improves drastically and quickly, they will no longer sail.

NATO has already acted upon this protest and launched a moderately successful TLAM strike at Shagui airfield.

3.0 Orders:

You are the commander of Hammerfest Area Defense Forces. Your mission is to prevent NATO submarines from approaching the coast and launching TLAM at the motherland. Only the best NATO submarines have this ability. Your patrol sector stretches between RefPt Alpha and Beta into the coast.

21.0 Emergency...911 [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.

5.0 The Gibraltar Question



5.0 The Gibraltar Question

"With the loss of Hong Kong to mainland China, the fortunes of the British Empire appeared to be waning. At such times, profiteers often choose to strike.

Spain has long been aggrieved over the British base at Gibraltar. Attempts to eject the British have always met with failure. But the heyday of the Royal Navy was perceived to have 'passed' by those within the Spanish government. Spain will not attack 'The Rock', itself. It is too well defended. But all defenders must eat and a blockade was imposed around the British bastion.

Commercial traffic in and out of the Mediterranean Sea was closely escorted by Spanish warships, but any British-flagged vessel was turned back. British warships were forbidden to enter Spanish territorial waters and British aircraft could not enter Spanish airspace.

The United Kingdom reacted violently and a flight of fighters sent to reinforce the base was shot down. While British diplomats grope for a peaceful answer at the U.N., the Royal Navy sought a different solution."

13.0 Fix, Hold, and Destroy





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.

23.0 Raging Tigers [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.

Thailand
SSSSSS 020000Z27May00 SSSSSS

1.0 SitRep:

Following a disastrous ASEAN meeting, the Kingdom of Thailand assembles its fleet and sails towards the Maritime Exclusion Zone [MEZ].

The Royal Thai fleet is approximately 30nm south of Con Son heading for rendezvous point Tiger near the Prince consort Bank where it will join other ASEAN forces. Although no enemy action is expected, hostilities are believed to be imminent.

3.0 Orders:

Sail to rendezvous point Tiger and combine with the ASEAN fleet. Command will revert to R. Adm. Suddathan.

Enemy action is not expected, but Vietnam's actions cannot be anticipated.

Protect the convoy sailing from Thailand enroute to Taiwan.

4.0 Rules of Engagement:

Warning level Yellow, Weapons Tight

Take no provocative action, but protect the integrity of your command at all times.

13.0 Deep Strike II [Combined Arms]




"The Russian economy, stressed by the demands of war, confirms its leaders' worst fears. Economists tell the Defense Council that unless the war is a short, victorious one, the economy will collapse."

Act III: Battle Chess

"Exhausted by the furious pace of combat and the horrific losses, both sides are forced to re-evaluate their basic strategies. Fuel and ammunition are being consumed at fantastic rates, confirming the most pessimistic peacetime estimates.

At sea, reinforcement convoys have become vital prizes, to be protected or destroyed. Soviet strategy did not anticipate a long war and made no plans for a sustained campaign in the North Atlantic. Now forced to do so, Soviet attack subs and aircraft must operate at extreme range in an ocean ringed with hostile bases."

"Long-range Soviet naval aviation has been a powerful force for the Soviets, interfering with NATO convoys and thus reducing NATO's efforts to reinforce and support the ground war in Europe. NATO has made the removal of the SNA bomber force a top priority."

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