The 13th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

August Storm

Image

A Harpoon Commander's Edition scenario for the Westpac battleset.

At the conclusion of World War II, the Soviet Union annexed the sparsely populated islands of the Kuril archipelago, a region they had seized and occupied during an offensive undertaken in the closing days of the war. The peace treaty made between Tokyo and the allies underlined Japan's loss of the territory, but it did not reinforce the Soviet claim. The sovereignty dispute over the Kurils has continued to simmer for decades, and now looks to boil over with the Russians making moves reminiscent of the Manchurian Offensive.

The 14th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

Evacuation through the Alboran Sea 2012

Image

Spring 2012: As a last backslash to the 2011 turmoils in the North Africa and Middle East Muslim World, in Morocco the moderate laicist Government of National Unity of Abdelhadi Boucetta (With the decisive support of his intellectual and glamorous wife) replacing for less than a year the deposed King Mohammed VI (Exiled to the ONA-Managem luxury mining facilities in Equatorial Guinea), has been overthrowed by the Islamic extremists after a long and painful agony.

The new Moroccan islamist Government of the now named Muslim Brotherhood in the Islamic Maghreb, counts with the opposition of a important sector of the Moroccan people, basically the most literate and pro-Western sector. Preventing a possible unrest, remembering the internal public reaction to the ill-fated Moroccan invasion of the Spanish Perejil Island on 2002, the new Islamic government has fixed as national target for amagalmation of the public opinion the seizure of the North-African Spanish Automous cities of Ceuta and Melilla, a long-time Moroccan claim. As both cities are very vulnerable without room for a possible in depth military defence, and the other new strategic targets and ambitions of the Spanish Government are now well known and the last years was retiring troops and police corps from both Ceuta and Melilla, there is a window of vulnerability the Islamic faction has well exploited.

With a Moroccan Police and Secret Service organized human waves of thousands of desesperate low-class Moroccan people jumping, breaking through, bending and for last tearing apart the divisory fence between both cities and Morocco, in face of the passivity of the Spanish security forces to avoid the loss of human lives (Action and reaction very similar to the Moroccan Green March occupation of the Spanish Sahara on November 1975, against a confuse Spanish government when Franco layed dying), the Moroccans had de facto occuppied both cities. Facing a not-return case, the Spanish citizens are assembled by the authorities in the cities ports, waiting for maritime evacuation (Only Melilla counts with a very small airport).

Remembering the success of the current Somalia pirates, and the success of the traditional historical activity of the Barbary Coast pirates (Only finished with the French conquest in North Africa in the XIX Century, after the previous famous actions of the USN and USMC), and for enforce more the moral of the Moroccan People, the Islamic government has decided to prevent the evacuation and the loss of richess and qualified manpower. In the tradition of their ancestors the Barbary pirates, they want capture them for ransom, or if not destroy and sunk the merchant ships carring them, to shown the weakness of the Spanish government and his incapatility to protect his own nationals.

In Spain, after the 2012 polls, the unstable socialist government of Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero and his long-time Defence Minister Carmen Chacon, has had to suffer the pressure of the peripherical nationalistic parties of his coalition of government, and to lend to his desires. After the resignation of General Felix Sanz Roldan as head of the Centro Nacional de Inteligencia and his replacement by a puppet civilian, nothing can be opposed to the nationalistic parties desires. As their first demand is the recuperation of the old territories of the Kingdom of Aragon, most of the surface forces of the Spanish Navy and a great number of his air assets are deployed in forward bases in the Balearic Islands and in the Central Mediterranean. As a result of it, facing the worst-case possible scenario, only limited forces are available for escorting the evacuation of Spanish refugees from Ceuta and Melilla.

Kangaroo Exercises

Image

An early - mid 1960s small scale joint Naval exercise (Australia/USA/NZ) off the Australian coast proximate the Coral Sea. Things go wrong when USSR shadows get in the firing line.

Australian, USA and NZ joint naval exercises have been progressing for ten days of the Australian Great Barrier Reef and into the Coral Sea. Two days of continuous at sea replenishment exercises completed 24 hours ago and two surface groups are preparing to conduct warfare exercises. The replenishment group is returning to Brisbane via the 'tight' “inside passage” of the Great Barrier Reef....

The 16th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

Task Force 77

Image

A Harpoon Commanders Edition (HCE) scenario for the Westpac Battleset and the HCE Cold War Database (HCCW-110222 or later).

In April 1975, with the North Vietnamese tightening their stranglehold on South Vietnam and their army closing on Saigon, the Americans assembled a large naval force to assist in the evacuation of American civilians and Vietnamese refugees deemed to be at risk when the entire country eventually fell to the NVA. In this scenario, the Soviets launch a much more overt effort to support the North in the closing days of their campaign, seeking to ensure their own grip on Cam Ranh Bay and the vital sea lanes of the Western Pacific. The administration in Washington, red faced from the Watergate scandal and looking for diversions, turns to face the Communist threat once more.

Antaeus

Image

A Harpoon Commander's Edition scenario for the EC2003 MEDC battleset.

Having become engulfed in the protests and demonstrations cascading across Middle Eastern nations, Libya is now in full revolt. Benghazi has fallen to, some might say been liberated by, the anti-government movement which is sweeping west toward Tripoli. Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, leader of this North African country for more than 40 years, refuses to leave power and is instead tightening his grip. Although many have abandoned the regime, a considerable number of forces still loyal to Gaddafi have been conducting arrests, abductions, and killings to try and stop the tides of change. It is reported that Gaddafi is promising wealth and position to local officials, political leaders and armed forces commanders in an effort to guarantee their support and obedience. With the military now taking an active role in suppressing the rebels, launching air strikes and ground attacks, the country is slipping rapidly into civil war.

The 22nd NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

Submarines Galore 89

Image

A submarine-only scenario without other diversions, inspired by some old scenario booklets of the Harpoon 3 series, good for testing submarines, submarine tactics, sonars, torpedoes and other ASW weapons. Perhaps the Western submarines are numerically over-represented, but it's reflecting the original and very reduced in number of submarines paper scenarios. Also it's configured as a vanilla scenario for lazy players wanting to enjoy a simple pastime, and with the aim of replayability thanks to the aleatority of the starting positions and of the units presence or not presence. I think it's playable at the 10 or even 30 minutes time compression ... before any contact.

Scenario Background:

At the start of the WWIII in the North Atlantic on 1989, the bad weather and also the political uncertitude precludes the use of air and surface assets. To keep low the social unrest because the war, the opening naval actions are limitated to the discrete submarine operations, in a situation remembrance of the 1939 Phony War and of the 1994 Tom Clancy's novel Debt of Honor (where both Japan and the United States are in war against the other, but both governments are occulting the fact to his respective public opinions to prevent the collapse of the stock markets), but these underwater actions are not less decisive or murderous than a full open war.

The 24th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

Iron Lady

Image

A Mediterranean basic ASW scenario inspired by the old scenario booklets of the Harpoon 3 series of the late 1980s and early 1990s, good for easy gameplay and for testing generic tactics and weapons. Actually it is a mix-up of individual naval scenarios as only the Computer Harpoon can provide. And reflecting all the knowledge adquired the last years in some matters, as about Soviet/Russian platforms and forces composition.

The scenario reflects the start of the conventional WWIII as was forecasted for about 1989, the first movements in the Mediterranean Sea to determinate the early control of the sea lanes, and the first days of open combat after the previous period of Phoney War.

SLMM Pickings

Image

A Harpoon Commander's Edition scenario for the EC2003 GIUK battleset.

A month after the start of the Third World War between NATO and the Warsaw Pact, most of the Red Banner Northern Fleet has long since departed from its berths on the Kola Peninsula. But with many of the initial, devastating sea battles already fought, surviving Soviet surface ships and submarines are compelled to return to their bases to refuel and rearm. NATO has ordered the entrances to these enemy naval bases to be mined. The mission falls to the American attack submarine USS Providence and its French counterpart, Rubis.

This scenario is loosely based on the High Tide scenario Mining Mission for Harpoon 4.

Panama Canal Terror

Image

The Panama canal is a vital sea route that is vulnerable to attack both on the structures of the canal and shipping in the restricted waters both to the east and west. In this scenario (minimum database HCDA-110225) we investigate such attacks.

You are to protect the Panama canal and approaching shipping. Recent events have indicated that mines have been laid in the waters of the Pacific ocean approach and the USA has urgently sent you specialized mine hunting equipment with further almost at hand. Canal equipment, in particular the locks, are quite vulnerable and only minor damage will greatly inhibit shipping transit.

Spratly

Image

In 2019 Asia has taken on a new political appearance. During the decade Australia has produced wealth from the establihment of a significant carbon trade (Carbon Reduction Trading Scheme) and has used that wealth to impose significant influence on surrounding countries, Asian countries in particular, and has formed (and controlled) the now powerfull Greater Australasian Economic Convention (GAEC). Only Taiwan has remained outside of GAEC although it is strongly held that there is significant co-operation and that its non-member status is only at the official level.

GAEC has slowly restricted much of China's requirements for expansion, particularly in respect of energy, with much of the resources available to GAEC going to the individually small, but collectively large, GAEC member countries.

Current tension is high after a month of strong diplomatic actions by both sides and GAEC conducting Naval exercises within the South China Sea (refered to by GAEC as the Viet-Malay Sea).

So You Think You Can Dance

Image

In 2015 the Chinese Government decides that American resolve regarding Taiwan is weakening. The crash of 2012 has reduced US defence spending radically, and a timid and isolationist administration in Washington will likely be poorly prepared. Japan and Korea, having ejected all american forces, will not be a factor. To eliminate the need for an invasion, it has been decided that a preemptive strike on Andersen AFB is necessary. We are certain that we will achieve suprise.

Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence

Image

It is Christmas 2012. Royal Navy ADM Robert Lawrence (YOU) has a problem. Iran has closed the Straits of Hormuz in retaliation for the Israeli/US attack on its nuclear weapons program. Most of the Gulf States have expressed their dissapproval and will wait this out. The political situation prevents the USA from helping in any overt way. The NATO anti piracy forces are the only assets available. Fortunately, you have three carriers. Unfortunately, you will have to lead from the rear, as UK defense reductions have left you with only helicopters. Deliver three supertankers to Bahrain to guarantee freedom of navigation in the Persian Gulf.
