      • Give a shout if you want an MP match. I'm always happy to find a new opponent.

        IIRC, even if you order disks, you still get free eDownload capability. That way, you can start playing while your backup copy is in transit.

        Welcome aboard, shipmate.

        • As an aside i have many ideas for possible scenarios.
          As an aussie i look at world from across pacific from US.

          Possible foes are India and Indonesia and we are hopelessly
          in a muddle with wrong ships [subs are ok]

          In 2004, India bought the Russian aircraft carrier, Admiral Gorshkov for the equivalent of US$1.5 billion. It cost an additional US$1.5 billion to overhaul the vessel and refit it entirely with new electronic, weapon systems and sensors. INS Vikramaditya will set sail to India after her commissioning on 15 November 2013. It is expected to join active service by December 2013.

          India paid US$2 billion for the completion of two Akula-class submarine class nuclear-powered attack submarines which were 40–60% completed. Three hundred Indian Navy personnel were trained in Russia for the operation of these submarines. India has finalised a deal with Russia, in which at the end of the lease of these submarines, it has an option to buy them. The first submarine is named INS Chakra and was handed over to India on 23 January 2012.For the first time India has designed and built the first boat of a class of nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarines. It is designated the Arihant class with the first vessel currently expected to be commissioned at some point in 2013. The lead vessel of the class, Arihant, was launched on 26 July 2009 in Visakhapatnam and is currently undergoing sea trials. The Navy plans to have six SSBN's in service in the near future.[106] These nuclear-powered submarines will be a vital part of the nation's much desired nuclear triad. Negotiations have begun to lease another Akula-II submarine from Russians as the defence establishment is serious about bolstering the underwater arm of the Navy.

                Stand-off in Feodosiya

                Ukrainian Marines vow to fight to the last man.

                News.Liga.net/news/politics/992765-pekhotintsy_vms_ukrainy_otkazalis_pokidat_svoi_poz itsii_v_fedosii.htm, 02 Mar 2014


                "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."

                NavalToday.com, 14 Mar 2014


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

                UKRAINE'S leadership simmered with a mix of hopelessness and anger at losing Crimea, tempering an influx of eager young men signing up as reservists with the growing certainty that no saviour would deliver them from the Russian takeover."

                News.com.au 19 Mar 2014


                "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

                • The 13th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

                  Marianas Sunrise




                  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




                      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."
