aotino -> Caso DB - The IndoChine Regime (3/20/2011 11:56:01 PM)

Hey fellow Harpooners,

I have a new custom Db [CasoDB] ready to put out there for the purposes of playing a campaign I'm designing that will contain several new scenarios. Subject matter is a contemporary world (2007-2009); events leading to it from the early nineties have taken a different turn than that as we know it. The world is at war with lines drawn across a variety of fronts from the South Pacific, North Pacific, Asia, Indian Ocean, Mid East and South America. If you're interested in a plausible "what if" challange, check into The IndoChine Regime, I'll try to get the scenarios out there soon and keep them coming, but would appreciate any play testing and feedback.
    The Caso Database was developed as a variant of the PlayersDB with the primary difference being the expanded ability of all vessels equipped with landing pads to be able to re-load and re-arm air units depending upon their particular capability. Additional aviation magazines have also been created to give the applicable surface platforms more choices in aircraft loadout.

    Additionally, this database has been developed to support, but not be limited to, a series of scenarios being designed by its author. All other scenario submissions using this database are welcome provided they are designed within the guidelines of the Harpoon 3 community. It is fully indexed by country and date for ease of use and reference and it currently covers over 90 countries. The scenarios and database are platform-independent and will work with both PC and Macintosh versions of Harpoon 3
http://www.harplonkhq.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=1228#p1228

The database and scenarios are bundled together and distributed with the PlayersDB installer for ease of use and popularity. Harpoon ANW users can get the CasoDB within the Complete PlayersDB Harpoon ANW Library

    The IndoChine Regime

    This campaign is not for the purist. This is an eclectic composite of past and future platforms, that is made possible due to a "what if" historical scenario.

    COMBAT TIME PERIOD: 2007-2010

    HISTORY:
    1992-2006

    The early to mid-nineties sees China discover enormous oil deposits deep below the Southern Gobi Desert. These reserves are nearly as massive as the Saudi fields, extending in branches as far north as Russian Siberia. Normally these deposits would be irretrievable because of their depth and geological composition, but a breakthrough by Chinese geologists unlocks the secret of this difficult extraction.

    After the Soviet Union breakup, the Russian government struggles to find definition and structure. The discovery of the section of Chinese oil deposits, which branch into Siberia, gives a boost to the new fledgling Russian democracy. However, these deposits remain locked to the Russians deep beneath the surface because they don't possess the necessary technology. China steps in and helps them retrieve the oil in exchange for the right to purchase much of the huge Russian fleet rusting in mothballs. In addition, they purchase the naval plans to all but a few of their surface platforms. The Russians are content to sit back and get rich selling their military hardware and newly found oil. However, they draw the line with their nuclear, air and sub-surface military hardware. These are not for sale. Giving up any last vestiges of being a projecting naval power, the Russians remain satisfied building up their defensive posture and staying out of the picture.

    On the other hand, the Chinese become a major naval power virtually overnight. Within a few short years, they create several carrier groups, cruiser squadrons, and develop an amphibious capability second only to the US, while amassing large quantities of DDG's and FFG's. Their amazing ability to take ship plans and mothballed hulks from the former Soviet shipyards and copy and re-create them with modernized weaponry is miraculous - very Asian. In many of their shipyards, platforms are turned out in 120 to 150 days. Keeping in step are Chinese naval academies and training facilities, building an entire generation of naval and air personnel, with a new cadre of young officers. Naval maneuvers and war games are stepped up to build experience and confidence. The Western Pacific becomes the personal playground for the Indochine navies and air forces.

    Due to these extraordinary developments, the United States, United Kingdom, and other NATO powers aggressively re-commission mothballed ships and step up development of platforms that are barely off the drawing board. The United States brings back recently decommissioned CV's, the Iowas, the Virginias, and other CGN's.

    They reach back for mothballed Adams and Brooke units, and even re-commission the Iwo LPH's. All other scheduled decommissions are cancelled, and refits are conducted throughout the mothballed navy. The intent is to re-institute a 700-ship navy as quickly as possible. A Republican hawk is elected in 1996, and the military arms race is ratcheted up. Development of the F/A-35 program goes forward full throttle, as well as many new weapon systems such as the AIM-120C9. The UK steps up the development of the Queen Elizabeth CV and Daring DDG programs while re-commissioning their older DDG's and FFG's such as the County's and Broadswords. Even Australia gets on the program by dusting off the CV Melbourne, while moving forward with it's River DDG program. For the first time in 20 plus years, the draft is brought back.

    About the time that China finds oil, India strikes uranium - huge deposits that turn the country into a major player on the strategic game board. In addition, as if there was some divine entity driving the world into further chaos, diamond deposits are discovered by accident when a national company is strip-mining for iron ore - large and vast, they rival South African reserves. The Indian Government regales in its new-found wealth. Military hawks gain control in the '94 elections and the arms build-up is underway fueled by disputes with Pakistan.

    The late 90's see India and China realizing it is in their common interest to join together and determine the future of Asia. They form the IndoChine Regime.
    North Korea quickly steps on board, in all probability due to China dangling South Korea in front of their nose like a carrot. China shares its Russian naval windfall with India and North Korea. The Indian shipyards take these plans and produce well-built versions of their own - cheaply and quickly. By the middle of the first decade in the new millenium, the IndoChine Regime has a combined navy over 800 ships!

    Just about the time that the US reaches its 700 ship navy and other NATO members reach their quotas, the US is attacked in September 2001. America and her Allies invade Afghanistan and then Iraq. It is at this moment that IndoChine makes it's move.

    In a well coordinated campaign, India strikes into Southeast Asia, taking control of Malaysia. While forming a shaky alliance with Myanmar, India threatens Thailand. Caught in the middle, Thailand agrees to join the IndoChine Regime and participates in the overthrow of the Cambodian and Laotian governments. Indonesia avidly joins the alliance, in the hopes of receiving new military hardware. The Chinese and Indians welcome them eagerly, and provide them with limited naval and air materiel. Knowing their cooperation is invaluable in securing the oil fields there, the IndoChinese also see Indonesia providing a buffer zone to Australia. However, the Chinese leave the administration of the Indonesian theater to their Indian and Thai allies.

    Everyone decides to leave Vietnam alone. No one wishes to deal with them due to their pertinacious independence. But in an unexpected move, Vietnam voluntarily joins the Regime, and a tenuous peace in Southeast Asia is achieved.

    At the same time, IndoChine forces invade and occupy Taiwan, the Philippines, and form a blockade around Japan and South Korea with the help of the North Koreans. Surprisingly, China restrains North Korea from invading South Korea. At first, the North Koreans are outraged, screaming foul. They were promised a free hand in the south, but China manages to smooth their ruffled feathers. No doubt it's only a matter of time until South Korea is attacked. Behind this terrible drama, the Russians continue to ply the IndoChine regime with more technology and materiel while making a bloody fortune.

    In an effort to isolate Australia and control the trade routes across the Pacific, the IndoChine forces strike out eastward to the Solomons. Along the way they take possession of many of the islands and atolls the US Navy and Marines struggled so valiantly to liberate a little more than sixty years before; the world sees them fall once again to dark forces. Although the Indochine Regime is not nearly as oppressive and brutal as their Japanese predecessors, any foreign ruler is an insufferable one.

    Renegade nations in Africa and the Middle East are expected soon to align themselves with the IndoChine Regime after receiving heavy financial and military aid, specifically Iran. The Regime is hoping to destabilize these areas in order to spread their influence for future expansion, especially in the Southwestern Hemisphere. South America is a ticking bomb ripe for the picking, where an extremely resourceful and rich benefactor is welcome to supply restful nations with the military hardware and technology to strike deep into the heartland of the United States.

    It is thus how we find the situation at the beginning of this series of campaigns.




aotino -> RE: Caso DB - The IndoChine Regime (1/11/2012 6:16:52 PM)

The 4th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

01 Survival of the Fittest

This is the first scenario written for ANW and HUE using the customized CasoDB. The scenario and database are bundled within the PlayersDB installation file due to its popularity and ease of use.

Echoing the philosophy of the man for whom it is named, the small city of Darwin, Australia finds itself in a fight for it's very own survival. As the world edged closer and closer to the brink of war in the preceding years and months, the Allies spent much energy, resources and money refitting and enlarging assets and bases around the globe. Unfortunately, Darwin was fairly low on the list.

This has come back to haunt them. Darwin Naval Base named HMAS Coonawarra, the Australian Army base at Larrakeyah Barracks and RAAF Darwin have come under direct attack by IndoChine forces. Some of the older residents will remember the Japanese attacks in the early part of 1942: not a pleasant memory. Then as now, the fears of complete devastation and occupation have become a distinct possibility.

Whether this is a move to neutralize northern Australia or the first step in an all out occupation, Allied forces must draw a line in the sand here and show that they are the ones chosen to be the fittest to survive.

The 6th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

02 Escape from Diego Garcia


Diego Garcia is the only centrally located base available to the Allies in the Indian Ocean. With the threat of the IndoChine Alliance looming on the horizon, British facilities in the Seychelles and on Mauritius have been expanded, as have the French facilities on Reunion and in the Comoros. However, these British and French bases are far from being large enough to support full-scale invasion fleets and air power.

The IndoChine military planners know this and realize that by neutralizing Diego Garcia, it pushes the Allies to the western end of the Indian Ocean and keeps Allied power projection bottled up there for at least a year or more - time enough for the Alliance to secure a grip on the Indian Ocean theater, and seriously hamper Allied operations in the Persian Gulf and the Arabian Sea.

03 Rock The ROC


After two weeks of heavy fighting from Indochine air assaults and missile attacks, ROC resistance concedes to the inevitable. Chinese Indo-Chine naval and air forces commence with an unopposed amphibious assault on Taiwan. ROC naval and air forces must perform an evacuation of all relevant assets to prevent them from falling into Indo-Chine hands.

The 5th NEW Indochine Campaign scenario of the year!

05 The Mauritius Command


The island of Mauritius has been graciously "lent" by the French to British forces as a fall-back position from the Indochine assault on the UK bases up north in the Seychelles. An all-out retreat is now underway as Allied forces make their way south for the island of Mauritius.

It is here, in concert with US forces re-trenched in the Comoros Islands, that Allied Forces will hold their ground and start a war of attrition in the Indian Ocean - to take back what they once possessed, and to bring the war home to the Indian Indochines. This is the hill to defend, or die on.

06 The Canal



Attempts are made to mine the western approaches to the Panama Canal by scores of submarines on lend/lease from the Indochine Alliance to their Peruvian, Ecuadorian, Cuban and Venezuelan allies.

The speed and completeness of this endeavor is astonishing, as it is performed practically overnight right under the noses of the Allies, in the backyard of Pan America.

The Chilean Navy goes on alert and coordinates with the US and Canadian Navies to reopen this vital waterway.

End of 1st Battleset – “Opening Salvos”

This scenario, “Cutter Cutout”, is the seventh and last scenario of the first battleset – “Opening Salvos”. The next battleset of the Indochine Campaign is “The Abyss of War”. Hopefully it will come out sometime early next year with a series of 4 scenarios. I hope you check in and play.

Thanks, Alan Caso

**************************************************************************************

The 7th NEW Indochine Campaign scenario of the year!

07 Cutter Cutout


Attu, the Aleutians:

On May 29, 1943, the last of the Japanese forces suddenly attacked near Massacre Bay on the Aleutian island of Attu, in one of the largest banzai charges of the Pacific campaign. The charge, led by Colonel Yamasaki, penetrated U.S. lines far enough to encounter shocked rear-echelon units of the American force. After furious, brutal, close-quarter, and often hand-to-hand combat, the Japanese force was killed almost to the last man: only 28 prisoners were taken, none of them officers. U.S. burial teams counted 2,351 japanese dead, but it was presumed that hundreds more had been buried by naval, air, and artillery bombardments over the course of the battle.

After the war, the United States government decided to construct a LORAN station on the southern tip of Attu, at Theodore Point. This installation was manned by the United States Coast Guard. In 1954, the station was moved to Casco Cove, near the former Navy Base at Massacre Bay. In 1960, it was moved to Massacre Bay.
(Source: provided by Wikipedia)

Forty seven years later, the island of Attu once again finds itself the object of a foreign interloper. U.S. Coast Guard forces must gather all personnel and civilians and organize a desperate and hurried withdrawal before enemy forces can take possession of the island and imprison its inhabitants.

aotino -> RE: Caso DB - The IndoChine Regime (3/31/2013 4:12:17 AM)

Hey Fellow Harpooners,

A 2nd Battleset for the Indochine Campaign is about to be released, called "The Abyss of War."

*****************************************************************************

02.0 The Abyss of War

This is the second battleset, consisting of four scenarios that occur during Mar-Apr of 2007.

As the war heats up, the Indochine Regime solidifies its gains and consolidates relations with its allies. The Regime begins preparations for the next phase of expansion. The Allied nations continue to reel from losses while trying to stop the Indochine onslaught, but their troubles seem to only deepen.

*****************************************************************************

The first of the four scenarios will be coming out shortly, and the following three will be released as soon as testing is completed.

Thanks and enjoy.

The 8th NEW Indochine Campaign scenario!

08 Ghost Carrier


CENTRAL PACIFIC:
Papua/New Guinea/E Australia:

In 1985, the Australians sold their Majestic-class carrier, HMAS Melbourne to the Chinese for scrap. After a much star-crossed journey, it was finally delivered to Port Huangpu almost two months later. However, the ship was not scrapped immediately. In fact, it was not scrapped at all. After world interest in its fate waned and became caught up in more important issues, the Chinese secretly began to refit the old warhorse. They began to train pilots in carrier operations, and unbeknownst to the rest of the world, the first Chinese operational carrier was developed - their most guarded secret. Long after the events that brought the Chinese a first-class navy with several well known and celebrated carrier squadrons, the Chinese Indochines still kept their little secret.

When the US is enroute to deliver the first of two newly refitted Iwo Jima-class carriers to Australia, a ghost from the past emerges out of the Solomon Sea and challenges their right to pass though the Coral Sea to Australia.

The 9th NEW Indochine Campaign Scenario!

09 The Perth Incident


EAST INDIAN OCEAN:
Indonesia/Malaysia/W Australia:

Barely past the second month of the war, and Perth finds it's extensive naval base blockaded with mines. Enemy subsurface forces managed to find a way in and mined all deep sea-lane approaches to the naval facilities in the harbor.

With their embarrassment complete, the commanding officers and staff assigned to Perth have tendered their resignations effective immediately, and the incoming command staff has been left with the unenviable task of fixing a most disastrous situation. Compounding the problem is the fact that a large number of Allied ships, which were in port after conducting combined fleet exercises now find themselves bottled up in Perth. Worse still is the fact that the 2nd newly refitted Iwo Jima-class carrier, HMAS Kimberley, is soon to arrive with escorts and auxilliaries on a lend/lease program - all laden with supplies. With Allied assets locked up in port, is the HMAS Kimberley walking into an Indochine orchestrated trap?

The clock is ticking to get an escort out of the harbor, and in a position to offer assistance to the newly arriving carrier group and convoy.

North/Northwest Pacific -
Aleutian Islands:

Adak is reinforced by US and Canadian forces after the Attu evacuation, but a large Indochine invasion is in progress. Operating from their newly conquered islands of Attu and Kiska, the Indochine strike force threatens the survival of the US mission on Adak.

Allied forces must repel the invasion and prevent the Indochine Alliance from securing a complete grip on the Northwest Pacific, which would threaten the US mainland and Allied supply of Japan.

I hope you check in and play.

****************************************************************************

The 11th NEW Indochine Campaign Scenario!

11 Falklands Revisited


South America/Caribbean/US/Canada:

Argentine surface forces begin strikes on the Falklands. A newly built carrier on lend-lease from China is a knock-off version of the Russian Moskva-class carrier. It carries updated and redesigned Yaks, which have been much improved since the initial Soviet designs. Also aboard are Sea Harriers from India, all of which help embolden Argentina's new power projection. The Argentine military nows feels confident that, with a much-bolstered and built-up military, coupled with the British engaged with commitments elsewhere, an eventual occupation of the Falklands (Malvinas) has a high chance of success.

With their forces stretched thin, the British Government appeals to Chile for assistance. However, the Chilean navy is anticipating trouble with Argentina in the Straits of Magellan, and so is unable to respond. Brazil still hesitates to become involved, preferring to remain neutral.

In the interim, the Royal Navy and Auxillary Forces cobble together a small convoy and escort in an attempt to break through and resupply the Falklands.

2nd Amended Caso dB

There is a new, 2nd update of the Caso dB which reflects changes in the turn-around or “ready time” of most aircraft loadouts. The loadouts have been accelerated for quicker game play. To some of the more traditional and conservative gamers of the Harpoon community, this most likely will be viewed as heresy. However, the Indochine Campaign is based on a “what if” premise, so certain liberties have already been taken. For the sake of keeping the game moving and exciting, the intent is to prevent long and drawn out scenarios. You will find the update in the Players DB Harpoon Library, and along with it all the Indochine scenarios to date will be re-synched with the new database.

In addition, this notice announces the 3rd and latest Indochine Battleset, “Too Few Victories,” which will be comprised of six new scenarios. Thanks and enjoy!

Alan Caso

**********************************************************************************************

03.0 Too Few Victories

This is to announce the 3rd Battleset, consisting of six scenarios that occur during May-Jun of 2007.

Still finding themselves in a defensive posture, the Allies look desperately for somewhere to strike a blow. Morale is low, and the defeatists have the podium. The strategists realize that although a quick victory would be a welcome event, holding the line is the most important action at this point. Spin doctors try to paint a positive picture while the strategy is to hold tight and stay the course.


**********************************************************************************************

The 12th NEW Indochine Campaign Scenario!

12 The 2nd Beagle Conflict

South/Central America/Carribean/US
Tierra del Fuego, Southern tip of the Americas:

Spanish for "Fireland" or "Land of Fire," Tierra del Fuego is an archepelago off the southernmost tip of the South American mainland across the Strait of Magellan. It is an area that is divided by both Chile and Argentina. Beagle Channel is a strait in this archipelago island chain. The Beagle Channel, the Straits of Magellan to the north, and the open ocean Drake Passage to the south are the three navigable passages around South America between the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. The channel was named after the ship HMS Beagle during its first hydrographic survey off these southern coasts. The ship was famous for the English naturalist, Charles Darwin, who was along as a self-funding supernumerary, and at the time, an amateur naturalist.

From the 1950's to 1970's, several incidents involving the Chilean and Argentine Navies occurred in the waters of the Beagle Channel. This ended with the Treaty of Peace and Friendship of 1984 between Chile and Argentina.

Once again that remote area of the world comes under conflict. Argentine forces from their main southern combined military base at Rio Gallegos, together with elements of their southern naval base at Ushuaia attempt to seize control of the Beagle Channel. In this difficult endeavor, the Argentines plan a multifaceted attack on the Chilean naval base at Puerto Williams. Chilean military units are on hand to answer the call in a desperate confrontation.

Mideast/Southwest Asia/Eastern Mediterranean

Arabian Sea:

Iranian-supported Omani rebels conduct raids in the Arabian Sea on merchant and naval shipping. Operating from the remote shores along the coast of Oman between Juzur al Halaniyat and the Gulf of Masirah, the barren plains of the Jiddat al Harasis provide a refuge for these phantom marauders, causing them to seemingly disappear into the desert air.

The Omani military cannot control the area. The US Navy attempts to ferret out these ghosts of the desert.

14 The Gate of Grief - Long and Short Versions


Mideast/Southwest Asia/Eastern Mediterranean;
Arabian Sea/Persian Gulf/Red Sea:
 
The Mouth of the Red Sea:
 
Bab-el-Mandeb, or Gate of Grief in Arabic, is a strait between Yemen on the Arabian Peninsula, and the Horn of Africa. It connects the Red Sea to the Gulf of Aden. The strait derives its name from the dangers attending its navigation. Modern day Yemeni pirates and terrorists supplied by the Indochines use this squeeze point and the Gulf of Aden to ply their trade of terror, and threaten the passage leading in and out of the Red Sea.
 
Local, Allied and International commerce traversing this vital sea gate rely on safe passage through these waters to exercise their right of trade. French naval forces, with the aid of some Spanish and British units, are tasked with removing this threat and supressing Indochine raiders.
 
This scenario offers two versions - a Long and Short version. The long version runs 23 hours, while the short version will run 15 hours.

aotino -> RE: Caso DB - The IndoChine Regime (5/11/2014 4:40:47 PM)

The 15th NEW Indochine Campaign Scenario!


15 Action in the Andamans


East Indian Ocean/Bay Bengal/Myanmar/NW Indonesia;
Andaman Islands:

A small combined force of French, British and Australian surface units attempt to chase down merchant raiders and enemy ships disrupting sea lanes along the Andaman Islands and the Northwest Indonesian territory of Aceh.

Being the first Muslim establishment in S E Asia, Aceh Territory has the highest proportion of Muslims in Indonesia. Islamic Fundmentalism is strong, and their support of the Indochine Regime is fanatic.
