The Sinking of INS Eilat, 21 October 1967
by Enrique Mas
The sinking of INS Eilat 1967, an alternative and hypothetical scenario.
In the aftermath of the Six Days War, only four months later, the Egyptian Navy achieved a technical and propaganda victory on 21 October 1967 with the sinking of the Israeli destroyer INS Eilat, the first warship sink in anger with a ship-launched anti-ship missile (In WWII some ships were sunk with anti-ship missiles, but all were air-launched), struck with three of the P-15 Termit/SS-N-2a Styx fired at her (A 75% hit rate).
In this hypothetical scenario some little elements are added or changed to do the situation playable for both sides.
This scenario is designed for play by the Israeli/Blue or the Egyptian/Red side, to avoid spoilers is better to play the first time the Red/Egyptian side.
