  1. The 14th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year! 21.0 Emergency...911 [H3.6] Sea of Dragons Battleset - The Chinese SeaIt 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.

  3. The 9th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year! 12.0 Deep Strike I "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 Northern Fleet SNA has become entirely too successful in its efforts to disrupt the Atlantic convoys. Some convoys have barely made it across at all and 50% casualties have become commonplace amongst the merchant ships. The merchant mariner unions have lodged formal notice that unless the situation improves drastically and quickly, they will no longer sail." This scenario was inspired by the situation described in the "High Tide" compilation from Clash of Arms. USSR ***** Flash ***** Flash ***** 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. Author: Herman Hum 12.0 Deep Strike I High Tide\DStrike1.SCN Over 542 scenarios in a single package!

  13. 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.

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."

  14. 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.

  15. The 37th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year! 12.0 Many Contacts 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.
