Third scenario of CMANO PdL Design Team, the biggest one so far. Any feed-back will help us to improve it.



NATO vs. Russia (Fictional)

Date/Time: 5th October, 2008 / 00:00:00 Zulu

Location: Black Sea, Aegean Sea

Playable Sides: NATO

In the last days of summer of 2008 the war in Georgia was getting more and more complicated for the Russians, somehow the Georgians had been able to resist the push of the Russians armed forces. Now the international public opinion was clearly favourable to the Georgian side and voices claiming for an international intervention were starting to be heard.

In this situation, Turkey saw an opportunity to increase its influence in the volatile Caucasus region and started lobbying to force a NATO intervention in the area. Intervention that wasn´t approved by the rest of the NATO member. Finally, forced by the public opinion and the political manoeuvres of Turkey, the North Atlantic Council decides to send a humanitarian convoy to Georgia with a token escort.

Russian has announced that the convoy is clearly a contribution to the Georgian war effort and as such the Russian Armed Forces were going to stop it before reaching the Georgian port.

The convoy is under sail and the world is holding its collective breath remembering the day of the Cuban missiles crisis...



To Naples Allied Joint Commander:

By NAC order 1741 you were designed as operational commander for Operation “Assured Delivery”, whose main movement was the transit of a convoy to the Georgian port of Batumi.

Since the convoy departure of Marseille, situation in the Black Sea is worsening rapidly, the convoy just cleared the Bosphorus and it is clear the Russian are not going to let it go undisturbed…

You orders have no change at all: you will take the convoy and its escorts and set course to Batumi in the South of Georgia. Expect heavy harassment by the Russians, but analysts don´t think they will go beyond that.

Just to play in the safe side the SNMG-1, paying a visit to the Bulgarian port of Varna, has been chopped to you and now they are under your command. This four frigate strong group, is fully ready to leave port.

Turkey has transfered to your Command two maritime air patrol aircrafts from Cengiz Topel NAS, and you can expect more Turkey forces to be put under your command if the situation keeps worsening.

Finally the USS Enterprise Strike Group is in the Eastern Mediterranean, and has been also put under your Command, but remember that under the Montreaux Convention, the aircraft carrier cannot cross the Bosphorus…

Use all these assets to protect the convoy transit and download operations. If things go sour, you should have enough power to force your way in…

Huge political efforts are being made to defuse this situation, so the last thing needed is any incident involving your forces and the Russian’s, so make sure you avoid any operation in, under or over the Russian sovereign territory, airspace or waters. You are under a strict weapons tight ROE, do not fire unless in self defense…

The Russian have declared several maritime and air exclusion zones in the Black Sea area, so civilian traffic is starting to diminish, but expect a lot of small uncontrolled civilian vessels. Avoid civilian casualties.

INTEL reports that all Naval Air Regiment in the Black Sea Fleet have been put in high readiness status. Most of the surfaces vessel of the Black Sea Fleet have left port and are operating south of the Crimea peninsula. All but two of the Black Sea Fleet submarines are accounted for in their berths… their whereabouts are unknown but the Russian have been keeping an ELINT outpost close to the port of Poti.

The Black Sea Fleet flagship “Moskva” is still deployed in the Eastern Mediterranean with the “Admiral Kutnesov” group. This group, as three days ago, is in the port of L… paying a “good will visit” to the Syrian Government. Normal portside operations are been observed so far, but HUMINT indicates that not port leave has been granted to the crews, so it is believed that they are ready to be under way with a really short notice.

The Russian Air Force is heavily involved in the ongoing Georgian operations, so they already were in high readiness, in any case an operational increase has been observed in bases housing fighters. An increase of readiness has also been observed in the Air Defense forces, and several SAM regiments have left their garrisons and are expected to be deployed around the coast.

EMCON: use your electronic assets as needed, but consider that trying to squeeze the convoy in the Black Sea unnoticed is going to be quite difficult, if not impossible.

Moskva at the time operated with a SAG in the Black Sea, and was based in Novorossisk for a time

How do I get the convoy thru the Bosphorus. I am plotting a course but I an finding places where there is no water, ie elevation is +.

"Since the convoy departure of Marseille, situation in the Black Sea is worsening rapidly, the convoy just cleared the Bosphorus...."

According to Google Earth the Bosphorus is that tight transit point between the Sea of Marmara and Black Sea.

The Dardenelles has been passed. That's the transit between the Aegean Sea and Sea of Marmara.


Like the scenario backround will be a real challenge

Just plot a course with F3 to the other side of the Bosphorus and the convoy will find its path...

Thanks for the catch, we will change that in the briefing.

Interesting premise but too much stuff going on.
I spend the whole time watching Turkey and Russia dogfighting.
Also I can't see Turkey turning immidiately hostile to Russia. Not with Erdogan and how he positioned himself at the time.

The scen would be much more interesting without Turkey and maybe with just a narrow overfly corridor granted, or maybe turkish airspace even closed for US planes, you having to route your carrier strikes with tanker support through Bulgaria.
With that you might even dispense with the Kutznetsov group alltogether as it is challenging enough.

I agree with JCR on the tanker support. A tanker Det would be a great help. Also noticed there is lots of action by Turkish Forces, not to far into scenario but like it so far
