            • The 3rd NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

              22.0 Young Tigers [H3.6]




              Sea of Dragons Battleset - The Chinese Sea

              It 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.

              1.0 SitRep:

              The Thai fleet has set sail for the disputed region. This fleet is believed to be aiming for a rendezvous with other ASEAN fleets. A combined task force would be difficult to attack successfully, so it has been decided to attack the elements separately and sequentially.

              The picture is much clearer now that ASEAN has thrown back its cloak of deceit. Indonesian and Malaysian forces met at a rendezvous point and are now heading north. They must be stopped from linking up with the Royal Thai Navy.

              • The 4th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

                14.0 Heavy Escort




                "The Russian economy, stressed by the demands of war, confirms its leaders' worst fears. Economists tell the Defense Council that unless the war is a short, victorious one, the economy will collapse."

                Act III: Battle Chess

                "Exhausted by the furious pace of combat and the horrific losses, both sides are forced to re-evaluate their basic strategies. Fuel and ammunition are being consumed at fantastic rates, confirming the most pessimistic peacetime estimates.

                At sea, reinforcement convoys have become vital prizes, to be protected or destroyed. Soviet strategy did not anticipate a long war and made no plans for a sustained campaign in the North Atlantic. Now forced to do so, Soviet attack subs and aircraft must operate at extreme range in an ocean ringed with hostile bases."
                "While the strike on the Kola may not have been a complete success, they have taken much of the pressure off the convoys and their escorts."

                Duration: 24 hours

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

                ***** Flash ***** Flash *****

                SSSSSS 053000Z20Jul88 SSSSSS

                1.0 SitRep:

                A French carrier battle group is assigned to convoy escort duty, reflecting both their increased value and the concerns of the merchant mariners.

                Almost as soon as the convoy is clear of the continental air defense zone, it is attacked by SNA, but using new and imaginative tactics. French fighter pilots fly near-continuous patrols against reconnaissance aircraft, bombers, and the long-range, high-altitude missiles they fire.

                2.0 Intelligence:

                Soviet submarines appear to be allowing SNA strikes to roll-back the escorts before commencing their own attacks.

                In response to the increased threat from SNA, the Super Etendards have been ferried ashore and replaced with an additional squadron of Crusaders.

                3.0 Orders:

                Escort the convoy past the gap in land-based aerial coverage.

                Move towards RefPt UKADF as the maximum extent of land-based fighter protection. Ensure an average 15 knot speed of advance.

                4.0 Rules of Engagement:

                Warning level Red, Weapons Free

                Engage all Warsaw Pact units.

                Special weapons NOT <<repeat>> NOT authorized. Report all first use of CBR weapons to NCA via Flash protocol.

                        • Hi all (?)!

                          i recently set up my old H3.6 game for windows 10 to replay a few games. Must be close to 10 years since I played the game and wrote scenarios. The falklands battle set was written by me - and Iíve forgotten all about it - time to replay!


                          AAR: Advanced Sub, Argentine side

                          Ordered to assemble a convoy off Rio Grande, and escort it to BAM Malvinas, I raced all supply ships to Rio Grande (Except one which was slow and intercepted the convoy later). one of the patrol ships, racing at 28 knots, ran straight into an enemy torpedo and blew up. In spite of assigning helos, trackers and Neptunes, the sub was never detected. My CVBG protected the anchorage and after some hours was attacked by harpoon missiles causing light damage to one of the escorts. This time the sub was prosecuted and sunk. the convoy got underway at15 knots and hours later ran into another sub - i.e. another group of harpoons, causing light damage to a destroyer and my carrier. I dispatched a fast escort and aircraft to find the sub and avaded the position with the convoy. The sub managed to get a torpedo fired at my escort but it could be outran. The sub died from air dropped torpedos. Many hours later, suddenly an airborn contact was detected - this turned out to be a hostile lynx which fired off missiles and damaged another ship. soon after that I detected a fourth(?) sub, and sank it - thinking it may have been a whale. I barely made Port Stanley with the required reinformcement but did not trigger the VC as not all ships assembled off Rio Grande.

                          Amazinglz good scen - but reminded me that aircraft formation patrol zones don't really work well....


                          AAR Advanced Sub - British side

                          Took command of Spartan which was located North of Falklands. Given poor sonar conditions I sprint drifted southeast, using radar and periscope sweeps. ECM detected Admiral Lobo class freighter west of me so I closed. Then detected de carrier Mayo southwest on passive sonar, so gave her priority. after nearly half a day I was 18 nm ahead of de Mayo formation which included helicopter escorts and three tin cans but was only moving at 5 knots. I moved in at 9 knots below the layer, not wanting to be too long in an area where dippers might be. at 10nm from the carrier I detected a torpedo. went to flank speed (but moving towards the carrier) and was killed by the A344 torp. Rusty, very rusty.....

                          What a great scenÖ..

                            Nice AARs. It is good to see the return of the Grey Ghost of Harpoon. You get the opportunity to re-discover every scenario as though it was brand new.

                              • AAR South Georgia

                                my Mission was to destroy ground units at South Georgia in prep for liberation, and to find the submarine Santa Fe.
                                As the Mission would require ASW and guns, I moved my frigates and Destroyer towards South Georgia and my supply ships back north towards the TF.
                                helicopter recce revealed a gun armed patrol ship in harbor, as well as indications for strong defenses including Manpads, light guns and mortars. The Manpads were well hidden in the rock crevasses, and I lost two helos trying to find them. When my TF came within sight of land, the gunboat raced towards me, but was destroyed by Exocets. In an attempt to find hidden shore batteries I risked my last helo (with IR) and broad HMS broadsword as close into shore as I could (as she had the best visual sensors). the helo fell to a SA7, but the ships could just close to within range of their 114mm guns. Hundreds of gun round were needed to despatch the main defenses. broadsword was back to ASW, drifting around the Harbour entrance with sonars passive. She detected a sub contact within a few miles and despatched it with torpedos. We were then awarded victory, Santa Fe had gotten very close but apparently had no fire control solutions in spite of my ships being so close to shore.
