The EU battleset doesn't seem to be working at all correctly.
The linked download doesn't appear to have the file present EU 5 at all.

On EU 4 I am getting about eight messages stating the magazines are overun at game start. I could check the others if you want these to be tested? I don't believe this is just me, I am aware of others who are getting similar.

Harpoon 3 scenarios for the PlayersDB


New World Order battleset #3 - The Algerian Conflict

In July 1994, the unrest in Algeria that had been simmering for years finally exploded into a major armed conflict. The terror campaign that had been carried out by Islamic extremists since the early 1990s, reached an awful crescendo when they finally seized power in the country. Algerian government forces, demoralized and fearful of repercussions against their families, lay down their arms and capitulated to the rebel army by August 1994. It did not take long for the new Islamic government to gain support from Iran and Libya for its anti-Western stance. A major program to build a powerful Algerian military was funded by trading oil to Russia for arms. In March 1995, Algerian forces began harassing Western ship traffic in the Western Mediterranean. On 27 August, 1995, a civilian airliner was hijacked by Islamic extremists. The hijackers were given sanctuary in Algeria and the passengers were held for ransom. A Coalition of Western nations responded.

Sandstorm


This is a clandestine mission to rescue the hostages being held at Laghouat air base. Six CH-53 Sea Stallions, carrying a special operations team and flying from a Wasp-class LHD in the Western Mediterranean, will undertake the operation. French and Italian assets will attempt to keep Algerian and Libyan air forces pre-occupied.

The airliner has landed at Laghouat air base and the passengers have disembarked into the base barracks. Negotiations are underway, but expectations are not high.

Poison Oasis


SitREP:

The rescue attempt was successful. The hostages were freed, but not without cost. Four troopers were killed and 27 more were wounded in the operation. To make matters worse, two of the Sea Stallions were damaged by ground fire and crashed on final approach to the Kearsarge! Helicopters are currently busy pulling survivors from the water.

Heat Wave


SitREP:

Cities in Sicily have been struck by theatre ballistic missiles carrying chemical warheads and launched from sites in Algeria and Libya. Coalition forces must destroy the missile production facilities before there is further loss of life.

New World Order Battleset #4-1 - The War with UBAN - Indian Ocean Theatre

In September 1995, one of the West's not-so-secret desires was fulfilled. Saddam Hussein, the mother-of-all dictators, was assassinated. However, this apparent good fortune has also kindled one of the Western world's darkest fears. In the chaos following Hussein's demise, the "rogue nation" of Iran has taken political control of Iraq. This new nation has further amalgamated with Yemen, Syria, Egypt, and Libya in a new military and economic confederation known as the United Brotherhood of Arab-Persian Nations (UBAN). Led by Tehran, UBAN is, of course, staunchly anti-American. It is also the largest oil producer and the largest market for military arms in the world. These factors have combined to bring in the cash-hungry NSC as a powerful ally of the new Arab alliance. In a third, infinitely more terrifying re-play of the 1980-1988 and 1990-1991 Persian Gulf conflicts, UBAN has threatened to cut off the flow of oil in the Gulf and to invade both Kuwait and Saudi Arabia if the latter nations do not join UBAN.

The loss of these friendly partners would be a tremendous blow. Bolstered by its alliance with the NSC (New Soviet Confederation), UBAN is determined to make good on its promise to drive out the Great Satan.

Strike Comd HQ - Kuwait City
TF 26.2 - Flag Vella Gulf

Subj: UBAN Aggression

UBAN has openly threatened war with Kuwait and Saudi Arabia unless they eject American forces from their territory and join the UBAN alliance. J-STAR flights show UBAN armoured formations massing on the Kuwaiti and Saudi borders. Satellite reconnaissance indicates increasing levels of activity at UBAN airbases, ports, and other military facilities over the past 72 hours. The best estimate of UBAN intentions is that they are mobilizing for war and hostilities are expected to commence very soon.

Orders:

All commands are to maintain the defence of Kuwait and Saudi Arabia. Reinforcements are enroute via Bangkok and Diego Garcia. Move these assets to protected Saudi bases at your earliest opportunity.

TF 26.2 - Flag Vella Gulf is to proceed at best speed to Bahrain. Prepare for AAW defence of Gulf ports and possible OpOrd for offensive strike operations against UBAN targets. Warning - it is probable that UBAN surface and subsurface combatants have sailed.

You may use no more than 16 TLAM available to you. The balance will be used in future offensive strike operations against UBAN.

As expected, UBAN forces have already overrun Kuwait and are now preparing to break through the Saudi border. Heavy air attacks have begun against Saudi bases and UBAN naval forces are in control throughout most of the Persian Gulf. We are continuing to suttle aircraft into Saudi Arabia. A US CVBG is entering the Indian Ocean and is enroute to the Arabian Gulf to provide support.

The NSC is threatening to become involved if we interfere "too heavily in Persian Gulf affairs." Although this veiled threat is worrisome, we cannot affort to hold back our efforts to defend Saudi Arabia and liberate Kuwait.

Author: Herman Hum, Brad Leyte


#3 Cold Front


Things just got much worse, which is hard to believe, since Kuwait and much of Saudi Arabia has already fallen to advancing UBAN forces. The NSC has carried out air strikes against our key bases in Turkey thereby shutting down NATO operations there. The Turks have refused to permit our aircraft sanctuary for fear that NSC will renew its attacks. There are also indications that the NSC will assist UBAN in repelling the American CVBG now entering the battle zone.

Subj: NSC Intervention

1. SitRep
NSC attacks on Turkish bases have prevented us from using Turkey as a base for future operations. Turkey has refused access to US forces due to the threat of further NSC attack. Dhahran and Manama have been overrun by UBAN ground forces late last night. The situation at FEBA in Saudi Arabia is grim.

2. Orders

CVBG 44.1 - Flag Eisenhower - Proceed at best speed to the NW end of the Arabian Gulf. Upon arrival, begin strike operations against targets in Iran, Iraq, and Yemen. Attack by NSC aerial assets is considered a definite possibility. Engage NSC forces only in self-defence.

From within your Patrol Zone, conduct TLAM strike against facilities at Bandar-e-Abbas, Kish Island, and Bushehr. At your discretion, you may allocate a maximum of 8 TLAM against Jask and Chah Bahr targets.

#6 Steel Broom


Background:

UBAN forces are nearly defeated, but their ruling council has called for the Hand of Allah to strike down the Dragon in a great ball of fire. There are indications that UBAN has built several nuclear weapons, possibly using technology purchased from the NSC, and is now preparing to use them. The weapons are being held in bunkers deep inside Iran and the former Iraq. Your mission is to launch pre-emptive nuclear strikes on these sites. It is important that you time the strikes so that all three targets are destroyed as close to simultaneously as possible or the nukes may be moved to safety elsewhere. Or worse, they might be launched...

Subj: UBAN Nuclear capability

1. SitRep

UBAN forces are believed to be preparing to use nuclear weapons from three sites - two in Iran and one in the former Iraq. These sites must be destroyed immediately. It has been decided that the only way to be certain of the neutralization of these weapons of mass destruction is to launch a pre-emptive strike with special weapons. Launch authentication codes follow.

2. Orders

Initiate SIOP contingency warplan Operation Steel Broom. Attack and destroy all three UBAN nuclear sites at Balad, Kas Han, and Jandaq. Near simultaneous destruction is the preferred means of achieving success.

New World Order Series - Campaign #12 - Channel War

The 1996 conflict was the beginning of a new arms race. Many weapons slated for retirement were refurbished instead and many procurement programs were accelerated. France never truly recovered from the Iberian conflict of August, 1996. It never again fully trusted its European neighbours although it participated alongside them in the conflicts that followed with Bangladesh, India, and the New Soviet Confederation (NSC).

With the US and NSC effectively removed from participation as major players on the world stage, the EU was the sole remaining "superpower". Rivalries grew between its members in mid-2002 (especially between France and the UK) and France officially withdrew from the EU later that year. On the surface, it appeared that the disagreement was being fueled by the commonly held belief that France was failing to abide by the spirit of the 1998 Code of Conduct on foreign arms sales but some believed that the dispute had much deeper roots.

By Februry, 2003, the UK and France were battling each other with economic sanctions and embargoes and each stepped onto the slippery slope to war once more.


Quicksand

When the UK unilaterally declared its right to board, inspect, and impose a tariff upon all commercial shipping in the English Channel, France began providing its merchantmen with naval escorts. Shots have now been fired across the bows of ships from both navies and the situation is deteriorating rapidly. There are indications that the UK is planning to shut down the Channel to all French traffic in a matter of hours.

Author: Herman Hum, Brad Leyte


Quiver​

Once it became clear that both sides were not going to back down and that lives had been lost, the UK and France each set into motion their own secret war plans for dealing with their former ally. The first phase would concentrate on establishing air supremacy over the Channel region.

Author: Herman Hum, Brad Leyte


Quotient​

When war broke out, the French carrier, Charles de Gaulle, was in the North Sea, off Dogger Bank. The nearest British naval group was off of Ireland and is now steaming at high speed towards the Channel. The de Gaulle would have to enter the race to gain an advantageous position for the upcoming confrontation.

Author: Herman Hum, Brad Leyte


Quadrant Quatre​

With the De Gaulle out of action, the British are expected to act quickly to seize control of French territorial waters. French intelligence is reporting a possible amphibious landing at a Channel port.

Hugo's Folly Battleset

Elections in the Netherlands Antilles have seen gains for the political party seeking closer ties to Venezuela and its President, Chavez.

The Government has fallen and the legal status of the islands is unclear; with Curacao an independent nation within the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Aruba, and Bonaire seeking a similar status, and the three smaller islands of St. Eustatius, St. Maarten, and Saba being municipalities within the Netherlands. Early this morning, Venezuela carried out a sudden invasion of the ABC islands.

Flight of the Governor



This is the first scenario in the "Hugo's Folly" Battleset.

Venezuela has recently received deliveries of new Su-30 Flankers from Russia. Coupled with the political chaos of the current situation and the aspirations of a megalomaniac, this is a potentially volatile and lethal mixture.

Author: Herman Hum

St. Maartens



This is the second scenario in the "Hugo's Folly" Battleset.

Netherlands has a standing presence in the Caribbean with an FFG (currently Van Galen), 2 companies of Royal Marines, and several Coast Guard Cutters to deter any aggression and interdict drug shipments. The 2 short companies of Royal Dutch Marines fought a gallant rear-guard action towards the airport and left the island in two Fokker patrol planes.

The Netherlands has announced that it will send a task force to retake the islands, and convened an urgent NATO meeting this morning. The NATO meeting ended in an uproar after the NATO president determined that Article 5 did not apply and recommended diplomacy to end the crisis. The Dutch ambassador announced that Netherlands was ending its NATO military mission in Afghanistan with immediate effect and that in fact the 1500 Dutch troops there were already packing. It looks like Netherlands will have to fight the first phase of the aggression alone.

Author: Freek Schepers


Assemble in the Antilles



This is the third scenario in the "Hugo's Folly" Battleset.

The Netherlands has sent a task force to the Caribbean. The fast Frigates and support ships have arrived, but the amphibs and transports are still several days away from the conflict.

Author: Freek Schepers


Liberation of Antilles



This is the fourth scenario in the "Hugo's Folly" Battleset.

Netherlands has pulled together the largest Task Force it is capable of amassing. Due to recent sales of Frigates, P-3's, and F-16s, it is numerically at a distinct disadvantage. The Dutch armed forces are counting on their technical quality and training to attain victory.

The Second Lebanese War Battleset

Katyusha​


Syrian-backed Hezbollah is raining Katyusha rockets on Northern Israel. Israeli intelligence suggests that Hezbollah has over 10,000 such rockets flown in daily through Damascus from Tehran. Iran has an advanced missile program building anti-ship missiles and ground-attack missiles of various ranges and with ever-increasing accuracy. Katyusha is a terror weapon, but if Iran decides to supply Hezbollah with modern missiles and advanced guidance packages, then Israel is really in trouble. The Israeli government has decided that this threat warrants a pre-emptive strike on the missile manufacturing plants in Iran.

Author: Freek Schepers


Cruise Control​


This scenario follows Katyusha.

After a month-long war in Southern Lebanon which saw thousands of Katyusha rockets landing in Israel, the UN Security Council has enforced resolution 1702.

With Lebanon weakened and unstable, Syria felt it was in her best interests to occupy the country. Beirut has come under attack and Western nations are coordinating a massive effort to repatriate their citizens.

This scenario is a re-make of a Harpoon Classic scenario written by Mark Gellis and has been re-made for Harpoon 3 with the author's permission.

Author: Mark Gellis, Freek Schepers, Herman Hum


UNIFIL


After a month-long war in Southern Lebanon which saw thousands dead and thousands of Katyusha rockets landing in Israel, the UN Security Council has accepted resolution 1702.

Israel's deep strike on Iranian WMD sites has done nothing to reduce the threat from Hezbollah. It's all up to UNIFIL, now.

The UN mandate is to:

1. Enforce a cease-fire in Lebanon
2. Disarm/destroy Hezbollah in Lebanon
3. Implement an arms embargo against Israel and Hezbollah
4. Prevent IDF missions into Lebanon

France and Italy (both with long heritage in the Middle East) are leading the coalition which, for the first time ever, contains Army, Navy, and Air Force elements.

Author: Freek Schepers


Blockade


After a month-long war in Southern Lebanon which saw thousands of Katyusha rockets landing in Israel, the UN Security Council has enforced resolution 1702.

Israel's deep strike on Iranian WMD sites has done nothing to reduce the threat from Hezbollah.

UNIFIL is fully deployed with France and Italy providing ground forces, and Germany, Denmark and Greece providing Navy ships to prevent weapon resupply to Hezbollah.
