The 80th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

05.0 The Russians are Coming


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."

"The Northern flank of the Soviet assault on West Germany was exposed to possible attack from the sea. To secure this flank, the Soviets planned to knock Denmark out of the war quickly. The Poles and the East Germans have been invited to participate to show their solidarity with the Socialist cause. The invasion force was spotted by NATO aerial reconnaissance, but their destination could not be determined from the ships' movements."

The 1st NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

11.0 Cutting the Noose


The Soviets have captured Keflavik, Iceland, and are using their forces garrisoned there to disrupt NATO operations around the GIUK Gap. From there, they are launching attacks against the convoys crossing the North Atlantic to bring badly needed war supplies to Europe and their control of the air space around Iceland is allowing Soviet submarines to move through the Gap with little fear of attack from NATO ASW units. Soviet surface units are also able to re-supply there and thus operate farther from their home ports on the Kola Peninsula than they would otherwise be able to do.

The 3rd NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

The Battle for the First Salvo


This scenario is an interpretation of the account from Charles D. Taylor's, "First Salvo".

"The power structure in Washington had been privy to the Soviet Union's intentions well before D minus 7. In a world made smaller by satellite reconnaissance and instant communications, no nation could conceal such tactics for long.

It had been predicted by the CIA that, about one week preliminary to a concerted ground attack against NATO forces in Central Europe, the Soviet Union would initiate a series of military-political feints in various parts of the globe. The intent would be to confuse intelligence networks as to their exact goal. It could involve an increase in terrorist activities, an instigation of localized civil wars, previously unannounced military games in critical areas, and probable overt acts against U.S. forces -- all of which would be followed immediately by release of misinformation via KGB stations in major cities."

A wave of terrorist bombings has been perpetrated against Turkey resulting in the deaths of hundreds, including the President. Although instigated by KGB operatives, the blame and trail of evidence left behind led to Greece. As expected, war was declared within hours. The Turkish air force directed heavy bombing strikes over major Greek cities. The Greek retaliation was just as severe. Turkey announced the closure of the Bosporus and Dardanelles until further notice. As planned, the Soviet Black Sea Fleet had already passed through into the AEgean Sea.

In light of the situation in the Asia Minor, the annual exercises conducted by Russian divisions in Poland, East Germany, and Czechoslovakia were held over and Warsaw Pact forces did not return to base. NATO forces were placed on Condition Two alert with satellite photos showing reserve divisions mobilizing in the western sectors of the Soviet Union.

Four separate ramming incidents were recorded between Soviet and USN naval units in the Sea of Japan. In each case, the Soviets charged that American ships harassed Soviet units without provocation.

"The battle for the first salvo is taking a special meaning in naval battle under present-day conditions... Delay in the employment of weapons in a naval battle or operation inevitably will be fraught with the most serious and even fatal consequences, regardless of where the fleet is located, at sea or in port."

Adm. Sergei Gorshkov,
Admiral of the Fleet of the Soviet Union

The 4th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

8.0 Plight of the Moskva


This scenario is an interpretation of the account from Michael A. Palmer's, "The War that Never Was".

"As Soviet and Syrian forces battled the Americans and Israelis in the eastern Mediterranean, RADM Arkadi Filiminov's KPUG 2 initiated operations to secure the Aegean. At dawn, the Alligator-class amphibious transports Donetsky Shakhter and Alexsandr Tortsev began landing six hundred marines on the St. Barbara beach at Myrina, a small port on the west coast of Limnos. Overhead, specially modified army attack helicopters flying from the Moskva supported the invasion as the guns of the cruiser Ochakov pounded the old Genoese fort that overlooked the harbour. By noon, the island at the entrance to the Turkish Straits was in Soviet hands."

"As Filiminov left the bridge, he turned to CAPT Kamensky. 'We Russian officers,' he said, 'must always maintain our sense of the tragic. You know the old French proverb, "If you wish to learn to pray, embark on the sea."' Filiminov then retired to his cabin and committed suicide. Kamensky later found Filiminov's service revolver in his right hand; a small cross in his left."

The 5th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

12.0 Operations Plan 220-90


This scenario is an interpretation of the account from Michael A. Palmer's, "The War that Never Was".

"OPLAN 220-90 called for U.S. forces throughout the Pacific Command (PACOM) to initiate conventional offensive and defensive operations against Soviet units and against the Soviet Union itself. The plan assumed that neither power, at least initially, would have the assistance of its allies, other than the use of foreign facilities, such as Soviet bases in Vietnam and American bases in Japan, South Korea, and the Philippines."

"Thus, on D-Day the Soviets began not a military, but diplomatic and public affairs offensives in Japan, South Korea, the Philippines, Singapore, Indonesia, and Taiwan. Soviet diplomats entreated and threatened each of these countries to remain neutral and to forbid the operations of American forces from their soil. Other Soviet officials, local communists, and their supporters initiated campaigns designed to divide public opinion and to persuade East Asians that they ought not to allow themselves to be dragged into a European war by the United States."

"The Soviets gained even greater success on D Day in the North Pacific. Several hours before hostilities began, Bear reconnaissance aircraft located four American frigates convoying six container ships about nine hundred miles southeast of Hokkaido along the Seattle-Yokohama sealift route. Throughout the morning and early afternoon, the Pacific Fleet KPF vectored air, surface, and subsurface assets -- the Novorossiysk-Kalinin group, a Foxtrot, an Akula, and SNA Backfires and Badgers -- into strike positions. The attacks began at 1330 and lasted for three hours. All ten American ships were sunk. The Soviets lost neither a ship, a plane, nor a submarine. ADM Ushakov saw the sharp engagement as a vindication of his strategic ideas for Pacific operations. 'This battle was,' he reported to the general staff, 'a classic example of our combined naval doctrine and the most successful engagement fought by our naval forces on D Day, anywhere.

For CINCPAC, the convoy debacle was one of those events in life that suddenly bring everything into sharp focus. The loss of the container ships, loaded with ordnance and spare parts for air force squadrons in Japan, placed an immediate burden on American air transport assets which had to be shifted from other missions to fly supplies to the western Pacific. The Soviet success also demonstrated the dangers of operating without air cover. ADM Cooper immediately saw the wisdom of ADM Jernigan's strategy. Allied land-based air assets in South Korea and Japan blocked the movement of Soviet strike aircraft to the south and to the east. Their only way out was to the north -- between Hokkaido and Kamchatka. The only way to plug the gap was with naval air. Fortunately, Jernigan has his carriers closing in perfectly -- the Kitty Hawk coming down from the Aleutians, and the Independence coming up from Yokosuka. But Cooper remained concerned: could two carriers fight their way into the gap and close it?"

The 6th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

1.0 No One Bosses the Maidan


"The crisis began in Nov 2013 when President Yanukovych's cabinet announced that it was abandoning an agreement that would strengthen trade ties with the EU. The government later sought closer ties with Russia.

Anti-government protesters, who supported closer ties with the EU, called for the resignation of President Yanukovych and early elections.

[snip]

As the violence escalated, the Ukrainian parliament voted to overthrow President Yanukovych and he fled over the border into Russia."

The 9th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

2.0 Turnabout is Fair Play


"Two US warships have arrived in the Black Sea and will stand ready to offer assistance in the case of a security emergency at the Sochi Olympic games, officials said Wednesday.

The USS Mount Whitney, a command vessel for the Navy's 6th Fleet in the Mediterranean, arrived on Tuesday after departing its port in Naples, Italy, over the weekend, officials said.

[snip]

The second ship, the USS Taylor, is a frigate that arrived in the area on Wednesday, carrying a crew of about 200 sailors."

DefenseNews, Feb 5, 2014


"U.S. Navy said Thursday its guided-missile destroyer USS Truxtun was on its way to the Black Sea for combined training and security cooperation operations.

The Arleigh Burke-class destroyer left its port in Souda Bay, on the northwest coast of Greece, to conduct drills in the Black Sea with Romanian and Bulgarian forces.

Lt. Shawn Eklund, a Navy spokesman, told Stars and Stripes the deployment wasn't related to Russian military activity in Ukraine.

'Truxtun's operations in the Black Sea were scheduled well in advance,' he said in an interview published Thursday."

United Press International [UPI], 6 Mar 2014


"The Turkish Air Force scrambled six F-16 fighter jets after a Russian surveillance plane flew parallel along its Black Sea coast, the military said on Friday, amid increased tensions between Russia and the West over Ukraine.

The incident, the second of its kind reported this week, occurred on Thursday. The Russian plane remained in international airspace, according to a statement on the website of the military General Staff."

Reuters, 7 March, 2014


"In the name of all coaches and other members of the athletes' entourage, I promise that we shall commit ourselves to ensuring that the spirit of sportsmanship and fair play is fully adhered to and upheld in accordance with the fundamental principles of Olympism."

Olympic Oath, 7 March, 2014


**** Top Secret **** Eyes Only ****

Fr: Marshal G.M. Tarkin,
Black Sea TVD
To: Cmdr. Konstantin Vadr,
SSK Alrosa

1.0 SitRep:

The cowardly Ukrainians attacked a vessel attempting to convey the rightful President of the Ukraine to safety in the Motherland. Even now, they brazenly flout our rightful and legitimate authority to protect the interests of ethnic Russians in the Crimea.

To add insult to injury, their corrupt former Prime Minister, Yulia Tymoshenko, derisively dubbed 'The Princess' by Crimean Russians, thumbs her nose at the might and authority of President Putin by attending the opening ceremonies of the Sochi Special Olympics.

The meddlesome Americans have ordered their ships back to the coast of Sochi ostensibly to provide 'assistance in the case of a security emergency' at the Games. Although in international waters, their presence lends support to the usurpers of the Orange Revolution.

2.0 Intelligence:

U.S. Sixth Fleet units consisting of LCC Mount Whitney, FF Taylor, and DDG Truxtun are deployed in the Black Sea. The 'Princess' is leaving Sochi and plans to meet with General O.B. Juan aboard the LCC Mt. Whitney to discuss possible deployment of U.S. troops in the Crimea.

Following our legitimate and reasonable reconnaissance patrols and probes along the Turkish Black Sea border, several Turkish naval vessels have deployed on sovereignty patrols and increased their alert status.

3.0 Orders:

By direct order of President Putin, Alrosa is hereby directed to sink the vessel carrying 'The Princess'. She has boarded the Spanish-flagged merchant vessel, Millenium Halcon, for rendezvous with the Mt. Whitney.

Since the Ukrainians covertly attacked President Yanukovych, turnabout is only fair play, especially in the presence of the Olympics. Sink the Millenium Halcon while maintaining plausible deniability for the Kremlin.

The 10th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

3.0 Hetman Homecoming


"Ukraine's Navy flagship, the Hetman Sahaidachny frigate, has reportedly refused to follow orders from Kiev, and come over to Russia's side and is returning home after taking part in NATO operation in the Gulf of Aden flying the Russian naval flag.

[snip]

'Ukraine's Navy flagship the Hetman Sahaidachny has come over to our side today. It has hung out the St. Andrew's flag,' Senator Igor Morozov, a member of the committee on international affairs, told Izvestia daily."

RT News, Mar 01, 2014


"Rear Admiral Andriy Tarasov, Commander of National Contingent, informed the frigate would head home to Ukraine, soon. 'Ukrainian servicemen serve for the Ukrainian people and sail under the Ukrainian flag,' he underlined.

The announcement comes in the wake of media reports that the frigate refused to follow orders from Kiev, and come over to Russia's side."

Odessa Naval HQ
To: Gen. Dodonna,

CC: General Willard,
204th Tactical Aviation Bde,
- Red Flight Leader
- Gold Flight Leader

1.0 SitRep:

The Russians have seized Kirovskoe, Belbek, and Saki bases. The Marines at Feodosiya vow to fight to the last man. This is the darkest time for the nation. Russian forces are expected to seize Oktyabrskoye and Karankut bases within the day.

The 204th Tactical Aviation Brigade has been grounded for the past month to prevent any accidental confrontation in order to avoid bloodshed. This has been in vain as brave Ukrainian soldiers are now dying. However, the time spent on the ground has not been wasted as every aircraft has undergone intensive maintainance and is now 100% ready for combat.

A naval confrontation between NATO and Russia broke out in the Black Sea. A NATO surface group consisting of Turkish, Romanian, Bulgarian, and American vessels was annihilated by Russian forces led by the Slava-class cruiser, Moskva. NATO has dubbed her "The Death Star".

2.0 Intelligence:

The Moskva expended all her surface-to-surface missiles in the battle and most of her SAMs, too. She has returned to port and is working feverishly to replenish her magazines. She is currently vulnerable and relies upon defences provided by other units.

The Russians do not consider small one-man fighters armed with cluster munitions to be any threat.

3.0 Orders:

Sink the Moskva before she can complete her replenishment.

Priority One. All other priorities rescinded.

The Moskva is heavily defended and carries the firepower greater than half the Black Sea Fleet. Its defences are designed around a large-scale assault. The approach will not be easy. A low-level attack profile will minimize your exposure. Skim the surface to the release point.

The available bombs, rockets, and cluster munitions have a theoretical range of 2 nautical miles. However, the closer they are to the target when released, the more effective they will be.

The Western nations are on the fence regarding the Ukraine as it has not shown any willingness to fight for her own sovereignty. The 204th Tactical Aviation Bde must demonstrate that resolve.

All other bases are openly displaying passiveness in order to mis-lead the Russians into believing that their illegal annexation will be accepted without opposition.

4.0 Rules of Engagement:

Warning Level Red, Weapons Free.

Engage all Russian units at your discretion. Primary target is Moskva.

Order 937
Priority One:
Ensure destruction of Moskva
All other considerations secondary

The 13th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

Marianas Sunrise


Marianas Sunrise

Inspired by fictional events depicted in Tom Clancy's, "Debt of Honor".

In eastern Tennessee, a car accident involving two Japanese-made vehicles leads to the deaths of six people. Revelations about manufacturing and shipping errors that led to the accident stir long-standing resentment toward Japan's trade policies.

As trade negotiations between the United States and Japan come to a halt, Congress passes legislation allowing the US to replicate trade practices of the countries from which it imports goods. This immediately cuts off US export markets, threatening the Japanese economy.

Facing an economic crisis, Japan's ruling corporate cabal decides to take military action against the United States. Supported covertly by India and China, they plot to curtail the American presence in the Pacific.

Japan launches phase one of its assault, sending Self-Defense Force units to occupy the Marianas Islands, specifically Saipan.

The invasion, conducted with commercial airliners is virtually bloodless.

Elsewhere, during a joint military exercise, Japanese ships "accidentally" launch torpedoes at the US Pacific Fleet, destroying two submarines and crippling two aircraft carriers (Enterprise and John C. Stennis).

US naval capability in the western Pacific is drastically reduced.

Immediate retaliation is delayed by phase two of the Japanese offensive: an economic attack.

As the military offensive begins, Japan engineers the collapse of the US stock market by hiring a programmer who is also a consultant for an exchange firm, tasked with inserting a logic bomb into the system.

When triggered, the computer program blocks the storage of all trade records made after noon on Friday.

The Japanese also attempt to take the life of the Federal Reserve chairman, however he survives the attack with a broken back.

America now faces a massive economic crisis of their own and subsequent mass panic. The Japanese hope the Americans will be too distracted to quickly respond to Japan's military actions.

The 14th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

9.0 Lock-On


This scenario is an interpretation of the account from Michael A. Palmer's, "The War that Never Was".

"Responsibility for the defense of western Libya-Tripolitania--rested primarily with the Libyan air arm. It was, on paper, a substantial force of more than 550 combat aircraft. But over 400 planes were in storage and many of the rest were flown by Syrian, North Korean, or Russian pilots. (The Soviets also controlled the extensive Libyan air defense system.) There were only about 75 fighters--miserable Su-20 Fitters and nearly obsolescent MiG-23 Floggers--combat ready in Tripolitania on the morning of D-Day. The Soviets promised to supply pilots and to fly in additional aircraft in the event of a crisis. But in the midst of a global war, neither the Soviet Union nor any of its surrogates could afford to send hundreds of skilled pilots to Libya.

Over 200 NATO fighters and attack aircraft were available to "take on" the Libyans during the 14th. Rear Admiral Byrnes's Kennedy task group alone carried 86 aircraft including 20 F-14A Tomcats, 20 F/A-18 Hornets, and 20 A-6E Intruders, a force numerically equal, and qualitatively superior to the Libyan forces based around Tripoli. The dozen AV-8B Harriers on the Italian carrier Garibaldi, and the 16 Super Etendards and 10 Vought F-8E Crusaders of the French carrier Foch would be available to support the Kennedy's operations. NATO land-based air assets in Sicily included a dozen USMC F/A-18 Hornets at Sigonella, 32 F-16A Falcons of the USAF's 401 Tactical Fighter Wing (TFW), 612th Tactical Fighter Squadron, at Comiso (the wing's 613th and 614th TFSs were scheduled to arrive on the 15th and 16 respectively), 32 Italian F-104G Starfighters of 37 Stormo at Trapani, and 30 G 91Ys of 32 Stormo that had staged from their base at Brindisi to Cantania."

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.
