=FC=Gorgon -> AAR: falkands: Between Ascension & San Carlos (4/12/2010 2:46:01 AM)

This scenario is not published yet so it was basically a MP playtest between myself and Herman. In short, the UK needs to get a tanker to a reference point; taking out 2 Argentine ships but not losing 2 or more in the process.

First, I lost b/ I neglected to read the time for the scenario. You have 24 hours to get your tanker to the ref point. Basically, you need to make a b-line for it. I did a round about course to the SE and I did not get there in time.

But, it did make it harder to find me. :-) I had the whole force together and sent out Lynx helos to recon. Eventually I found 2 of the Argentine ships: the CL and a DD. I split off a DD and FF of my own and went hunting due west of my position. The Broadsword FF and tanker continued south.

Despite some Lynx recon, we basically stumbled upon each other. There was a DD in range so I let lose 4 x Exocets. Most hit and the DD was a sinking. I conti nued my course west and sent a helo to find the CL; hoping she was alone. No such, luck as I detected at least 2 more ships but then the Lynx got shot down.

By this point my radar was hot so I got into range of another target and let loose 4 more Exocet. They did some damage as she slowed to 8 knots but she was till up. Out of SSM, I turn tail and run southeast. I believe at this time the Argentines are also out of SSMs and just have the CL's big guns.

I leave the tanker alone and send the Broadsword North with her 4 Exocets. When I range I launch them at the DD but get no hits. Damn! I keep turning tail to stay out of range of the CL guns. I already lost 1 ship and cannot lose another. Shortly thereafter the game ends b/ of time.

Overall a fun time for each of us. I think it'll be tough for the scenario to not end in a draw if both sides play a decent game. Thus it's tough to win but if you can pull it off, you're an expert IMHO. :)

Admiral Nelson will be turning over in his grave! His beloved Royal Navy running from a fight! [:D]

Just a hint, though. Your SAMs will function as SSMs in ASuW mode.

Thanks for the AAR. You are teaching me a great deal of how players approach scenarios (especially how no one seems to read their orders [;)]).
