  • The 18th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

    10.0 Soviet Indian Ocean Squadron




    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."

    1.0 SitRep:

    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.

    140010L FF Cook reported submarine attack near Karachi while escorting two tankers. Subsequent contact lost.

        • The 19th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

          Operation StormCloud




          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




                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."

                    • The 28th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

                      3.0 Baltic Brawl




                      "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 29th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

                        This scenario is in direct response to a request from:

                        Woolen Horde

                        $80 is also a bit too steep for my tastes, but if someone redoes the fictional modern day US Civil War scenario from Harpoon, I'm in. CVBG vs CVBG, but the North has stealth fighters!

                        The Second War Between the States




                        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.

                            4.0 Non-Nuclear Nuclear Dispute




                            "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




                                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."

                                Duration: 24 hours

                                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.
