    The 41st NEW Harpoon scenario of the year! 10.0 Norwegian Entry In order to re-gain control of the Norwegian Sea, NATO must re-capture most of the Soviet-occupied bases in Norway.  The first step in this endeavour will be to leap-frog up the coast, much like what General MacArthur did in the Pacific during World War II.

    The 39th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year! 10.1 Kola Strike [1988] "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."

  5. Harpoon for Dummies

    In direct response to a request from BlindGuyNW: "I just purchased Harpoon Ultimate Edition, largely on the strength of an article on SimHQ which I can't seem to link to. Granted, that discusses a beta version of the game, but the interface does not seem to have changed appreciably. I have always been interested in games with depth and complexity, and Harpoon definitely seems to offer that. i've also been blind since birth. I was wondering if anyone had suggestions on how I ought to proceed. Much of the information provided by the game is textual in nature, but the map is also obviously important. As that article points out, I can't set courses for groups easily. Given that someone obviously has been able to play the game and understand what was happening, I feel like it should be possible. I'm just not quite sure how to begin. If anybody has suggestions, or tips on how to handle things in an automated fashion, or what have you, it would be greatly appreciated. One thought I had was to begin with mostly stationary platforms, so I didn't have to worry about movement quite so much. Other than that, I'm a bit lost. My screen reader is able to parse most of the controls in the game, thankfully." http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/fb.asp?m=3960007 A new video has been added to the YouTube Harpoon for Dummies channel to help players navigate the complexities of the game and to deliver the best possible playing experience.

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.

    The 24th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year! 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.

  13. Harpoon 3 scenarios for the PlayersDB

    The 21st NEW Harpoon scenario of the year! 02.7 Night Action 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.
