The 54th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

Isle Grab - Spratly Island

w8f.th.gif

With the growing might of Chinese strength, China is more assertive in its claim of South China Sea. The Cold War was long over and Globalization was transforming alliance systems world-wide.

The dispute of Spratly islands is mostly between China, Philippines, Vietnam, Taiwan and Malaysia. Taiwan and Malaysia decided to stay out of the fight. USN is not present for the moment.

In this scenario, Japan is allied with the Philippines. India is allied with Vietnam. This is a three-way confrontation between PRC vs Japan/Philippines vs Vietnam/India.

This is ASW/ASu/AAW scenario designed for 1-4 players. Duration is 5 days and hope you enjoy. :)

The 55th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

07.1 Convoy Maemul Sudo [ANW]

maemul.th.gif

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.

Re-supply will be an important part of the Imperialist's war effort. A combined task force has been infiltrated to an anchorage on islands bordering Maemul Sudo, with the expressed aim of disrupting any Japan-to-Korea convoys. Destroy as many of the ships in the first major convoy to leave Japan as possible.

08.2 Correo Entrante

pvb.th.gif

LOCATION: North Atlantic

DTG: 011930MAY91Z

The Soviets have two weapons that can reach NATO convoys in the Atlantic: submarines and aircraft. Long-range strike bombers on the Kola peninsula can attack at will with Iceland in Soviet hands. A standard convoy includes 40-50 merchant ships spaced 1nm apart in a rectangular latticework. Eight to ten escorts, and, if they are lucky, a helicopter carrier will provide protection from submarines and air attack.

Here, a large NATO convoy has been detected by a Soviet Radar Ocean Reconnaissance Satellite (RORSAT) and Tu-95 Bear Ds are sent out to pinpoint their position. Following closely behind the Bears are two squadrons of Backfire bombers.

This could be a very bad day for NATO.

*NOTE - This is a rebuild of a scenario from the original paper rules of Harpoon as published in the "Battles of the Third World War" compilation from Game Designers' Workshop.

ORDERS FOR CDR TF Dedalo

While our convoy was forming up off the coast of Boston, a Soviet amphibious force landed on Iceland. They have since consolidated their position on the island and brought in reinforcements.

Reports indicate that Soviet bombers, including Tu-95 Bears, Tu-16 Badgers, Tu-22 Blinders, and Tu-22M Backfires are now based at Reykjavik and Keflavik. Expect attacks to be regimental strength. The submarine threat is unknown at this time.

12.0 The Grinder

xu6o.th.gif

NATO Convoy to Norway, USSR Controls Keflavik

The "Bergen Express", as it was called, was a naval success for NATO. The convoy arrived with the aircraft carrier only slightly damaged. Unfortunately for NATO, the campaign on the Norwegian front was not as successful. Another convoy is needed to re-supply Bergen.

This scenario is a re-make of a Harpoon Classic scenario from the original NACV battleset and has been re-made for Harpoon 3 with the consent of AGSI.

The 60th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

07.5 Foxhunt

vsi.th.gif

"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 first major convoy, escorted by a group led by USS Leyte Gulf, has left the United States enroute to Germany. SNA strike regiments have mounted a number of small-scale operations without success. Naval intelligence has positioned assets to predict the time before the Soviets attempt a full-scale strike on the vital convoy."

1.0 SitRep:

Soviet Naval Aviation has exacted a heavy toll from NATO shipping. NATO has replied in turn by attacking SNA bases on the Kola Peninsula. One such attack severely damaged Shagui.

This scenario was inspired by the situation described in the "Battles of the Third World War" compilation from Game Designers' Workshop.

The 64th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

Dawn Patrol (1975)

3a7e.th.gif

The coast of Norway is made up of fjords and islands with high, rocky coasts. This is a perfect place for small surface craft to operate because the rock walls make them hard to spot on radar, and the short detection ranges make their smaller SSMs more useful than in the open ocean. Additionally, there are so many fjords and other places to hide such that no navy can afford enough large craft to do the job.

3.0 Bridging the Gap



1pa.th.gif



Feb 14 1994, Valentines Day. Less than 24 hours ago Soviet forces struck all across Eastern Europe in a bid to seize the initiative and establish themselves as the dominant fore in Europe once and for all time.

NATO, and particularly the Americans are not well positioned to challenge this sudden attack. The defences of Northern Norway were caught off guard and much of the Soviet fleet has left port. Over 100 submarines, the CV Adm Kuznetsov, two BCGNs, and four CVHs have entered the North sea. The NATO submarine patrols off the North Cape have been silenced.

Simultaneous with the attack on Jan Mayan, the Royal Marine Commandos and Danish Home Guard on the Shetland Islands and Vagar are bracing for an attack. These island outposts stand square in the middle of the GIUK gap and, if left in NATO hands, would form the basis for an ASW/AAW barrier. In Soviet hands, the gap is wide open.

The Royal Navy is moving the HMS Invincible TG North to oppose the Soviet move. Will it be enough?

"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."

"Submarines have traditionally lurked near harbours, hoping to catch ships leaving port, before they can lose themselves on the open ocean. With the war underway, the waters off the Kola Peninsula are the best hunting ground in the world, if you can stay alive."

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

11.0 Cutting the Noose


c4e.gif



The Soviets have captured Keflavik, Iceland, and are using their forces garrisoned there to disrupt NATO operations around the GIUK Gap. From there, they are launching attacks against the convoys crossing the North Atlantic to bring badly needed war supplies to Europe and their control of the air space around Iceland is allowing Soviet submarines to move through the Gap with little fear of attack from NATO ASW units. Soviet surface units are also able to re-supply there and thus operate farther from their home ports on the Kola Peninsula than they would otherwise be able to do.

The 3rd NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!



The Battle for the First Salvo


uqw0.gif



This scenario is an interpretation of the account from Charles D. Taylor's, "First Salvo".

"The power structure in Washington had been privy to the Soviet Union's intentions well before D minus 7. In a world made smaller by satellite reconnaissance and instant communications, no nation could conceal such tactics for long.

It had been predicted by the CIA that, about one week preliminary to a concerted ground attack against NATO forces in Central Europe, the Soviet Union would initiate a series of military-political feints in various parts of the globe. The intent would be to confuse intelligence networks as to their exact goal. It could involve an increase in terrorist activities, an instigation of localized civil wars, previously unannounced military games in critical areas, and probable overt acts against U.S. forces -- all of which would be followed immediately by release of misinformation via KGB stations in major cities."

A wave of terrorist bombings has been perpetrated against Turkey resulting in the deaths of hundreds, including the President. Although instigated by KGB operatives, the blame and trail of evidence left behind led to Greece. As expected, war was declared within hours. The Turkish air force directed heavy bombing strikes over major Greek cities. The Greek retaliation was just as severe. Turkey announced the closure of the Bosporus and Dardanelles until further notice. As planned, the Soviet Black Sea Fleet had already passed through into the AEgean Sea.

In light of the situation in the Asia Minor, the annual exercises conducted by Russian divisions in Poland, East Germany, and Czechoslovakia were held over and Warsaw Pact forces did not return to base. NATO forces were placed on Condition Two alert with satellite photos showing reserve divisions mobilizing in the western sectors of the Soviet Union.

Four separate ramming incidents were recorded between Soviet and USN naval units in the Sea of Japan. In each case, the Soviets charged that American ships harassed Soviet units without provocation.

"The battle for the first salvo is taking a special meaning in naval battle under present-day conditions... Delay in the employment of weapons in a naval battle or operation inevitably will be fraught with the most serious and even fatal consequences, regardless of where the fleet is located, at sea or in port."

Adm. Sergei Gorshkov,
Admiral of the Fleet of the Soviet Union

The 4th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!



8.0 Plight of the Moskva


0owl.gif



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

"As Soviet and Syrian forces battled the Americans and Israelis in the eastern Mediterranean, RADM Arkadi Filiminov's KPUG 2 initiated operations to secure the Aegean. At dawn, the Alligator-class amphibious transports Donetsky Shakhter and Alexsandr Tortsev began landing six hundred marines on the St. Barbara beach at Myrina, a small port on the west coast of Limnos. Overhead, specially modified army attack helicopters flying from the Moskva supported the invasion as the guns of the cruiser Ochakov pounded the old Genoese fort that overlooked the harbour. By noon, the island at the entrance to the Turkish Straits was in Soviet hands."

"As Filiminov left the bridge, he turned to CAPT Kamensky. 'We Russian officers,' he said, 'must always maintain our sense of the tragic. You know the old French proverb, "If you wish to learn to pray, embark on the sea."' Filiminov then retired to his cabin and committed suicide. Kamensky later found Filiminov's service revolver in his right hand; a small cross in his left."

The 5th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!



12.0 Operations Plan 220-90


OPlan220_zps2513f528.gif



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?"

The 6th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!



1.0 No One Bosses the Maidan


th_Maidan_zpsae4b5465.gif



"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


th_FairPlay_zps2abc06b2.gif



"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.

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. Serhiy Vyshnevsky stressed."

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

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

BBB News, Europe 19 March 2014


SSSSSS 230000Z26Mar14 SSSSSS

Fr: Adm. Ackbar, Chief of Staff
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
