Harpoon 3 scenarios for the PlayersDB

Recommended Posts

The 13th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!



Marianas Sunrise


th_Marianas_zps267ddf45.gif



Inspired by fictional events depicted in Tom Clancy's, "Debt of Honor".

In eastern Tennessee, a car accident involving two Japanese-made vehicles leads to the deaths of six people. Revelations about manufacturing and shipping errors that led to the accident stir long-standing resentment toward Japan's trade policies.

As trade negotiations between the United States and Japan come to a halt, Congress passes legislation allowing the US to replicate trade practices of the countries from which it imports goods. This immediately cuts off US export markets, threatening the Japanese economy.

Facing an economic crisis, Japan's ruling corporate cabal decides to take military action against the United States. Supported covertly by India and China, they plot to curtail the American presence in the Pacific.

Japan launches phase one of its assault, sending Self-Defense Force units to occupy the Marianas Islands, specifically Saipan.

The invasion, conducted with commercial airliners is virtually bloodless.

Elsewhere, during a joint military exercise, Japanese ships "accidentally" launch torpedoes at the US Pacific Fleet, destroying two submarines and crippling two aircraft carriers (Enterprise and John C. Stennis).

US naval capability in the western Pacific is drastically reduced.

Immediate retaliation is delayed by phase two of the Japanese offensive: an economic attack.

As the military offensive begins, Japan engineers the collapse of the US stock market by hiring a programmer who is also a consultant for an exchange firm, tasked with inserting a logic bomb into the system.

When triggered, the computer program blocks the storage of all trade records made after noon on Friday.

The Japanese also attempt to take the life of the Federal Reserve chairman, however he survives the attack with a broken back.

America now faces a massive economic crisis of their own and subsequent mass panic. The Japanese hope the Americans will be too distracted to quickly respond to Japan's military actions.

The 14th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!



9.0 Lock-On


th_LockOn_zpsb1f60717.gif



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

"Responsibility for the defense of western Libya-Tripolitania--rested primarily with the Libyan air arm. It was, on paper, a substantial force of more than 550 combat aircraft. But over 400 planes were in storage and many of the rest were flown by Syrian, North Korean, or Russian pilots. (The Soviets also controlled the extensive Libyan air defense system.) There were only about 75 fighters--miserable Su-20 Fitters and nearly obsolescent MiG-23 Floggers--combat ready in Tripolitania on the morning of D-Day. The Soviets promised to supply pilots and to fly in additional aircraft in the event of a crisis. But in the midst of a global war, neither the Soviet Union nor any of its surrogates could afford to send hundreds of skilled pilots to Libya.

Over 200 NATO fighters and attack aircraft were available to "take on" the Libyans during the 14th. Rear Admiral Byrnes's Kennedy task group alone carried 86 aircraft including 20 F-14A Tomcats, 20 F/A-18 Hornets, and 20 A-6E Intruders, a force numerically equal, and qualitatively superior to the Libyan forces based around Tripoli. The dozen AV-8B Harriers on the Italian carrier Garibaldi, and the 16 Super Etendards and 10 Vought F-8E Crusaders of the French carrier Foch would be available to support the Kennedy's operations. NATO land-based air assets in Sicily included a dozen USMC F/A-18 Hornets at Sigonella, 32 F-16A Falcons of the USAF's 401 Tactical Fighter Wing (TFW), 612th Tactical Fighter Squadron, at Comiso (the wing's 613th and 614th TFSs were scheduled to arrive on the 15th and 16 respectively), 32 Italian F-104G Starfighters of 37 Stormo at Trapani, and 30 G 91Ys of 32 Stormo that had staged from their base at Brindisi to Cantania."

The 18th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!



10.0 Soviet Indian Ocean Squadron


th_IndRon_zps72280084.gif



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

"The campaign against Libya was but one of several waged within the US Central Command's area of responsibility (AOR). On the morning of 14 July, all hell broke loose from the Red Sea to the Strait of Malacca. Four Russian "tankers" began dropping mines in the shipping channels of the Persian Gulf, while Soviet aircraft, surface combatants, and submarines staged dramatic attacks against Allied and neutral ships."

030000Z Hostilities between NATO and Warsaw Pact forces initiated.

Warsaw Pact declares unrestricted warfare on all vessels sailing under NATO flags but promises to respect the sovereignty of neutral nations and encourages all vessels not involved in the conflict to seek safe haven in port so that 'unforeseen and accidental incidents' do not occur. Most commercial vessels heed the call and sit at anchorage.

Most nations within the Persian Gulf and Indian Ocean are maintaining their neutrality and state that they intend to defend their borders against all incursions. Forward deployment of U.S. assets not possible at this time.

101000L Diego Garcia bombed by Tu-95H bombers. Several shot down, but one B-52H destroyed on the taxiway and the airfield was shut down.

110700L MCM New Orleans and FFG Klakring sunk in the Strait of Hormuz with heavy loss of life by Backfire strike.

The 19th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!



Operation StormCloud


f2i.th.gif



NATO vs USSR

LOCATION: Arctic Circle
TIME: 5 January 2017, 0400 GMT

Mikhail Gorbachev's removal from power during a coup by the army, and his subsequent execution at the hands of the KGB, led to a Soviet government that became even more insular than it had already been. Protests following Gorbachev's death were swiftly put down, and once elements of the Soviet government that had previously supported him had been forced to re-embrace traditional party values, the government was able to focus on re-establishing the arms programs that Gorbachev had tried to dissolve.
The situation was not received well in Europe or the USA, and continued to escalate over the next few decades. Russia began exerting additional pressure on shipping in the Arctic Circle, claiming sovereignty over waters that had previously been open to all nations. When Soviet vessels fired on Norwegian ships, sinking them with all hands, the matter was suppressed despite the British Special Boat Service (SBS) finding evidence that proved Russian involvement in an incident which was blamed on malfunctioning GPS equipment, engine fires, inclement conditions and any other reason that could be produced in an attempt to prevent an all out war.
To try and prevent any further raids of this type occurring again, NATO ships began moving north and taking up positions around the ice pack. Royal Navy and US Navy submarines began patrolling these waters with renewed awareness. The situation came to an inevitable head when an over-zealous NATO fighter pilot fired on a Soviet sub that was forced to surface after engine trouble, in close proximity to a NATO convoy. The sub was reported as sunk by the pilot, but repercussions from the Soviets were not far behind. NATO agents in Russia reported that a high amount of traffic around the docks in Nenelsia and Yamalia, with all SSSR crews being called back to their vessels. All contact was lost with NATO agents in Russia, and their fate can only be guessed at.

The 24th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!



11.0 Turkey Trots to Water


th_TurkeyTr_zpsc1b2beb7.gif



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

"In response, Seventh Fleet had concentrated formidable amphibious assets in WESTPAC. A sizable task force had concentrated at Okinawa -- fourteen ships capable of lifting twelve thousand marines of III MEF. Maritime Prepositioning Ships Squadron 3 lay anchored at Guam, loaded with equipment for 1 MEB, based in Hawaii (the 3rd Marines). A six-ship convoy carrying additional equipment and supplies for the marines was at sea about 750 miles south of Okinawa. If the Independence group moved north, only about a dozen frigates, an SSN, and three squadrons of patrol aircraft would remain to protect these assets.

Cooper also worried that the Soviets might move their remaining surface assets from Vladivostok through the Tsushima Strait between Japan and Korea, link up with their KUG already in the East China Sea, and 'devastate our poorly screened amphibious forces as they clear Okinawa.' On the morning of 13 July, CINCPAC received a report from Japanese intelligence sources that a task force including the carrier Baku, two cruisers, a destroyer, four frigates, and several replenishment vessels would shortly depart Vladivostok. Unless the Japanese and South Koreans intervened, only limited American forces -- the four marine squadrons at Iwakuni, Japan, the SSN Tunny, and the old diesel boat Barbel -- were positioned to prevent a Soviet move through the Tsushima Strait.

Despite his concerns, CINCPAC deferred to his subordinate's judgement. To Cooper's mind, Jernigan was responsible for operations in WESTPAC, and the decision was his call. Either choice involved risks, grave risks. No one knew what the Russians were going to do, or for that matter the Japanese or Koreans, north or south. But Cooper was a proponent of what he considered a cherished naval principle -- the initiative of the subordinate, trust and confidence. Cooper had no wish to overrule a subordinate's decision, especially one of his first decisions of a campaign. Cooper had known Jernigan for twenty years and had complete faith in him. So the Indy went north, not south."

"Shortly after 1100 Tokyo time (1500 at Pearl), reports of air battles over the Sea of Japan began to reach LTG James Bridges, Commander Fifth Air Force at his headquarters in Yokota, Japan. To the north, American F-16 Falcons of the 432nd Tactical Fighter Wing (TFW), based at Misawa in northern Honshu, and to the south, F/A-18 Hornets of Marine Aircraft Group 15, based at Iwakuni, engaged Soviet MiGs and Sukhois in aerial duels to control the air space to the west of the Japanese home islands. The marine and air force pilots found themselves outnumbered and hard pressed. At 1355, Bridges called GEN Henry Eustace, Commander, Pacific Air Forces, at Hickam AFB, Hawaii, over a secure telephone line and requested the release of the two squadrons of F-15 Eagles based at Kadena, Okinawa, which had heretofore been restricted to CAP missions between Japan and Taiwan. Bridges also recommended that Seventh Air Force assets in South Korea be fed into the battle. Eustace promptly gave Bridges complete authority over the 18th TFW at Kadena, but, fearing a North Korean attack across the DMZ, PACAIRFOR, with CINCPAC's approval, continued to hold the South Korea-based Seventh Air Force's 314th Air Division in reserve."

3.0 Baltic Brawl


th_BarBrawl_zps0f2a7f78.gif



"Russian nationalist fervor grew worse and more aggressive. Thwarted in her attempts to intimidate Poland because of tacit NATO assistance, Russia looked to Sweden in its search for expansion and a politically vital diversion. This time, the dispute was over Gotland Island, which Russia claimed as an ancient Tsarist territory that a 'free' Russia, (free of Communism, that is) wanted back. Sweden denied any such claim and both sides began sending patrol craft into the waters around Gotland to reinforce their positions."

Duration: 24 hours

This scenario was inspired by the situation described in the Harpoon 4.1 Rules from Clash of Arms.

The Second War Between the States


th_2nd_War_zps71b0f000.gif



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.

"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


th_1stConvoy_zps4ff0cec2.gif



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."

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.

The 3rd NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!



15.0 Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors


th_TinCan_zpsc40b4175.gif



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."

The 4th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!



07.7 Foxhunt


th_FoxHunt_zpsd166ea59.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 8th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!



08.0 Rough Neighbourhood


th_RuffHood_zpsxq1udrmd.gif



"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."

The 10th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!



10.0 Shadow - Interpretation of ROE


th_Shadow2_zpsf86jutq7.gif



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]


th_Kola1_zpsnunexfx4.gif



"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."

The 21st NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!



02.7 Night Action



naction.th.gif


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.
