Are you talking about ini files?


Yes. Have they been in the scenario packs before? I don't believe I've seen them, and I don't see anything equivalent in the scenarios that come with the game.


I always include an .ini file with my scenarios so that if someone wants to update the scenario to a new version of the database, they won't lose any changes I have made (including adding weapons to air base magazines...I think they reset automatically to empty if you update the scenario to a new database and don't have a delta template .ini file.)

Got it working in Firefox. Something wrong with my cookie settings and once fixed that and cleared out all the old ones it was OK. Thanks

Miguel Molina has posted a new revision of the Command community scenario pack, the compendium of Command scenarios crafted by the user community. The new release contains several scenario updates plus ten brand-new scenarios:

Caribbean March 21st, 2022: Venezuela has attacked the islands of Curacao and Aruba and occupied them. The Dutch government has launched a counter-offensive to retake the islands. You are in command of the Dutch TF and the Air Force Base at St. Maarten, stocked with new F-35s. But Venezuelan forces are similarly upgraded with fresh Chinese equipment. Can you take the islands back?

Carrier Battle Group ASW Test, 1984: It has been said that a carrier’s biggest threat is not aircraft, but submarines. Time to put this theory to test. Multiple Soviet submarine threats are expected in the path of a CVBG. The CVBG needs to transit the area and defend itself at all times.

Etendards in Her Majesty’s Face, 1982: The Falklands conflict has gone on longer than it did historically. Having run out of Exocet missiles, the Argentines now prepare their Super Etendards for an attack on the British task force using conventional bombs.

The Irish-Spanish Fish War, 2015: Tensions have increased between Ireland and Spain.  Ireland has responded by closing its Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) to Spanish fishing boats.  However, there have been reports of Spanish trawlers continuing to fish in Irish waters, and that Spain has even sent military vessels to make sure its fishing boats are not harassed.  Ireland, not surprisingly, considers this a breach of international law and a gross provocation.

Mission of the Ile De Sein, 2015: The waters surrounding Île de Sein are part of a protected seascape lying within France's 200-mile Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). The responsibilities the French navy include protecting these natural resources from poaching, illegal dumping of chemicals, and other threats. This authority is now being challenged by Russian organized crime.

Regulus, 1961: The Berlin Crisis is smoldering. Sneak a Regulus missile submarine through the Kurils and be prepared to conduct a nuclear strike on the industrial sites in Komsomolsk-na-amur. Naturally, Soviet forces in the area are on high alert.

The Battle of Mitu, 1995: This scenario assumes that violence from the FARC conflict with Colombia has spilled over into Brazil.  Brazilian citizens have been kidnapped and killed. Among other crimes, FARC is blamed for the brutal murders of a Brazilian police captain and his family. FARC currently occupies the Colombian town of Mitú, close to the Colombia-Brazilian border. Brazil has decided to raid this FARC stronghold.

The Battle of Seogeom-Ri, 2015: South Korean and North Korean forces are clashing again.  At stake is the South Korean island of Seogeom-ri, which lies close to the border between the two countries.

The Five Powers, 2020: China has been aggressively pushing it's territorial claims in the South China Sea for over a decade, by the late 2010s it has begun to push those claims ever farther to the south and east. In response the Malaysia activates the Five Powers Defense Agreement; with Singapore, Australia, and New Zealand immediately retasking forces to the assistance of Malaysia, and the UK promising support as soon as possible. Can the Five Powers stem back the Red Tide? (NOTE: A highly entertaining AAR of this scenario can be found here)

The Moheli Crisis, 1999: A bloodless coup took place in Comoros in 1999. This scenario assumes the coup was more violent and chaotic. Rebels have seized control of the island of Mohéli.  French nationals living on the island have been taken hostage and the rebels are threatening to kill them unless their demands are met--the rebels believe that France will pressure other factions in the Comoros in order to protect their citizens. As might be expected, France has taken a dim view of these actions and is mobilizing.

Miguel Molina has posted a new revision of the Command community scenario pack, the compendium of Command scenarios crafted by the user community. The new release contains all existing scenarios updated to the latest databases accompanying the v1.07 release, plus five brand-new scenarios:
  • Probe of Feint, 1963: As Red China edges closer to a usable nuclear weapon, many actors, including the United States, watch with increasing alarm. Eventually pre-emptive action is decided upon - but in a way that will not be obvious...
  • Water Wars, 2017: For over 100 years Bolivia has tried to reacquire territory lost to Chile in a series of conflicts in the late 19th century, particularly the valuable province and port of Antofagasta, which provides access to the Pacific. In December of 2015 the ICJ delivered a shocking verdict that Chile had illegally acquired the land from Bolivia and must provide them sovereign access to the sea in the form of a "national corridor" some 20kms wide. Chile immediately responded negatively. In retaliation, Bolivia built a dam diverting the Silala river, a waterway vital to Chilean economy. The matter will no longer be settled on the courts or negotiating tables...
  • Angamos Goes The Distance, 1980: A Peruvian submarine must conduct a covert extraction of Peruvian government personnel (i.e. spies) from Chile. The Chilean navy will shoot unidentified intruders first and ask questions later.
  • Andaman Sea Clash, 2005: In 2004, tensions between Thailand and Myanmar increased. During the summer of that year, a Thai fishing boat was sunk by a Burmese patrol boat. Seven months later tensions have remained high and Thailand has started to conduct regular patrols in the Andaman Sea to protect Thai fishing boats. Myanmar has not protested this action, but has made it clear that it will not tolerate Thai fishing boats violating its territorial waters or its protected fisheries.
  • Operation Fei Lian, 2019: The baloon is going up in the Korean peninsula - but it's not the conflict that everyone planned and prepared for. Radical elements of the North Korean military are attempting a coup, and back-channel talks with the Chinese leadership lead to Beijing decide to support the rebels. As the General in command of the Shenyang military district, you are ordered to destroy the North Korean air force as well as the NK "strategic" nuclear forces, using the PLAAF assets in your command.

    Quick question - are the overlays still a separate download or have they been "packaged" using the new Scenario Attachments feature in 1.07?

    THANKS ALL! Great work as always.

    Miguel Molina has posted a new revision of the Command community scenario pack, the compendium of Command scenarios crafted by the user community. The new release contains nine brand-new scenarios:

    They Came From The Museum, 2015: Soviet/Russian tactical aircraft have a long history of 'inexplicably' showing up in various conflicts under the hands of 'rebel', 'advisor' and otherwise non-official pilots. This scenario assumes that the "little green men" in Ukraine take this strong tradition one step further and piece together a hodgepodge air force from various odd sources, including a number of exhibits from the Luhansk Air Museum. How will these Cold War cast-offs and their mysterious pilots fare against Ukrainian air defences?

    The Battle of Langkawi, 1973: By 1973, the communist insurgency that erupted in Malaysia has taken control of most of the state of Kedah.  They have captured a number of artillery pieces, armored cars, and other military equipment, including a number of aircraft. An international coalition, led by the UK, and including forces from Australia, New Zealand, and Singapore are assisting Malaysia in its fight against the insurgents. However, the Soviet Union, China, India, North Korea, and Cuba have all  recognized the self-declared People's Republic of Kedah - and will actively assist it against blockades of its ports in the Kedah region, including the island of Langkawi.

    The Clash Of Titans II, 2018:  India started the year with intensive naval activity in both Indian Ocean and Arabian sea. The brief Indian incursion into littoral waters of French island Reunion was condemned by French diplomacy. Further diplomatic tension eventually resulted in a double embargo between France and India. A week ago, the French CVBG led by the Charles De Gaulle CV left Toulon naval base and headed to Suez. INS Vikramaditya with its escorts was ordered to head towards the Gulf Of Aden. Politics will continue by other means from now on.

    Closing the Kurile Gap (The War That Never Was) - US, 1989: The Soviet Pacific Fleet would have faced a difficult problem with geography if the Cold War ever went hot. Their largest base, Vladivostok, faces the Sea of Japan. Any units transiting to the Pacific either need to pass through the narrow Tsushima Strait, flanked by likely-hostile South Korea and Japan, or they need to head northwest and pass through the disputed Kurile Islands. The other major Soviet naval base, Petropavlovsk, opens to the Pacific. However, it is located at the end of the remote Kamchatka peninsula and has long, vulnerable supply lines. This scenario examines the Soviet Pacific Fleet's ability to break out through the Kuriles, and the US Navy's role in plugging the gap.

    Closing the Kurile Gap (The War That Never Was) - USSR, 1989: The Soviet side of the above scenario.

    Those Who Face Death, 2014: In this hypothetical "from the headlines" scenario ISIS has captured much more intact military equipment from the Iraqi and Syrian Armies; they also have the technical capabilities to put it to use. Expect to see American, Iraqi, Syrian, Iranian military equipment. You are hunting a convoy of artillery and APCs heading to Mosul from the south before turning west towards the Yazidi camp at Mount Sinjar. You will need to airdrop supplies and parachutists to the Yazidi camp to achieve success. You are sending British and American aircraft from bases in Turkey, Kuwait, and Cyprus.

    Log Bridge, 1989: World War III has been raging. The fighting over Keflavik has been so heavy that what remains of the airfield, currently held by NATO, is unusable.  At the same time, the fighting in Europe has pl aced demands upon available resources that preclude either side sending long range aircraft to attack or defend Iceland.  The fate of Iceland will therefore be decided by a decisive surface battle. The big guns are coming out - literally.

    Nuclear Storm, 1991: Desert Storm is underway, and the unthinkable has happened: Saddam's forces have launched chemical attacks on coalition troops, with significant casualties. Now a retaliation is in order - to illustrate within limits that some lines are not to be crossed.

    No Time for Mischief, 1995: Mischief Reef is in a disputed area of the South China Sea.  In 1995, China angered the Philippines by occupying the reef and constructing structures on it, ostensibly as shelters for fishermen.  In history, the matter did not escalate into violent confrontation. This scenario assumes the government of the Philippines has taken a more aggressive approach, assuming that if worst comes to worst they will be backed up by the United States.

    Just curious...at this point, what's the total count of released scenarios? Thanks.

    (later edit...I went back and counted and got 249, but I figured it couldn't hurt to ask.)

    I recently noticed there's an excel spreadsheet included in the pack that's quite useful:
    CommandCommunityScenariosListingUpdate025.xls

    It lists 205 scenarios in the community pack.

    And, if I am correct, there are 40 standalone scenarios and 3 tutorials, bringing the total number of released scenarios to 248.

    Thanks for the new package. I hate ISIS and really like to see more scenarios like "Those Who Face Death".

    My attempts to download the newest community scenario pack have hit a snag. Each time download is attempted I am informed that bandwidth has been exceeded for this download. Is a mirror available?

    Hmm. Just happened to me also. Have used this download link many times in the past with no issues. Now I get the "bandwidth" exceeded message. Any idea what's up?

    The summer is upon us, and Command's creative community is in full swing. Miguel Molina has posted a new revision of the community scenario pack, featuring a blistering fourteen new scenarios!

    Busy Day in Burundi, 1976: Widespread unrest has followed a sudden coup in the country, with rebel groups gaining control of military equipment. With the toll of civilian deaths increasing, an international coalition led by France and the United Kingdom has positioned itself to take action. SAS teams on the ground must cooperate with air support to hunt down rebel strongpoints.

    Homerun, 1956: From 1952 onwards, RB-47 recon variants of the new B-47 Stratojet bomber started overflying the north of the Soviet Union in photo-recon and ELINT missions. By the mid-50s these flights were getting to be really hazardous as Soviet air defences were becoming both more capable and more agressive. This is such a mission.

    Indonesian War #1 - Convoy Lion, 1995: In the 1990s Indonesia became increasingly aggressive about protecting its territorial rights, hunting down rebels in various provinces etc.  Its occupation of Timor has been marked by increasing reports of violence and oppression. This includes an effective blockade of the island, which has led to shortages of food and medicine. The British Parliament voted to support "all reasonable efforts including the use of force to compel Indonesia to allow humanitarian aid to reach Timor." The Australian government passed a similar measure the same day and Australia has been given operational control of the mission. A hastily organized convoy escorted by British and Australian naval units is now en route to the island of Timor. Indonesia has responded by stating that attempts to enter its territorial waters without permission will be treated as an act of war.

    Indonesian War #2 - Air Battle Over Java, 1995: Indonesia attempted to stop the joint Australian-UK convoy and hostilities took place on April 17, 1995. As a result, the British and Australian governments have decided to eliminate Indonesia's ability to attempt further attacks against their ships and aircraft. The first and perhaps most important step in achieving this goal is to cripple Indonesia's air force.

    Indonesian War #3 - Spartan Goes Hunting, 1995: After inflicting serious losses on Indonesia's navy and air force, the governments of Australia and the United Kingdom have decided to employ commerce raiding to put economic pressure on Indonesia and force them to sue for peace. As part of this, the nuclear submarine HMS Spartan been given a free hand.

    Better Bullets (AMRAAM), 1987: With development of the AMRAAM missile undergoing the all-too-common teething problems, an exercise is being held to justify its importance. This is an exercise presenting the possibility of a hostile air power using a similar missile against the USAF. The opponent is armed with advanced AMRAAMs and crewed by expert pilots, so expect a brutally difficult fight.

    Better Bullets (SARH), 1987: With development of the AMRAAM missile undergoing the all-too-common teething problems, an exercise is being held to justify its importance. In this variant the opponent is armed with SARH weapons only (like the AIM-7 and AA-10) and crewed by expert pilots, so expect a difficult fight.

    Kuril Islands, 1999: Japan has established a major seabed-mining operation 20 nmi west of the island of Kunashiri. Hostilities between Japanese Maritime Defense Force (JMDF) and Russian forces have broken out over economic rights concerning the Kuril Islands.  Russian Naval forces have established a formidable blockading surface and submarine units also supported by several squadrons of long range strike aircraft based out of airfields. You are in tactical control of all U.S. forces which include USAF land-based aircraft and JMDF forces in the area. You must defend your forces against attack and take control of as much territory as possible, until a United Nations settlement can be negotiated.

    Offensive CAP Belarus, 2015: Backed by Russia, Belarus has invaded Poland’s eastern provinces in force. Further Russian forces will be brought into action when the Belorusian Army’s offensive stalls. The USAF 555th Fighter Squadron (555 FS, 24 F-16C) and the Polish 40th Tactical Squadron (40.ELT, 24 Su-22M4) have been tasked to strike key logistic and support sites in Belarus to complicate enemy reinforcement efforts. They will be supported by a NATO E-3 Sentry and four EA-18Gs from the US Navy’s VAQ-139. Your task is to provide air cover for the operation using the 18 Typhoon FGR.4s of 1 Sqdn RAF. Enemy air activity is expected to be heavy.

    Bay Of Bengal, 1999: India has mobilized amphibious assault forces again Sri Lanka. The US embassy in Sri Lanka is urging all Americans to leave the country. The Indian CVBG is operating in the Gulf of Mannar. Russia and China have deployed naval bombers to India. Indian submarine activity in the region is significant. Sri Lanka fears Indian military buildup in preparation to final invasion force and collapse of the government. The United Nations has requested that a U.S. CVBG be sent to the area to stabilize the region. All Indian naval forces are considered hostile.

    Operation Black Buck 1, 1982: The Falklands conflict begins in earnest. As the Royal Navy Task Force arrives to enforce a 200nm exclusion zone around the islands, RAF Vulcans fly the longest-range bombing mission in history to date, to fire the opening shots of the war.

    April Storm #1 - The New Eastern Front, 1996: Boris Yeltsin was removed from power in late 1995. His replacement, a former general in the Red Army, has set an aggressive tone for the new Russia. In the first week of April 1996, Russia and Belarus invaded parts of eastern Poland. About one quarter of Poland is now under Russian control. The UN has been unable to effect any change. NATO has warned Russia that the current situation is intolerable and that it must withdraw from Poland or face serious consequences.

    French Forces in the Gulf of Sidra, 1981: France frequently skirmished with Libya in various flashpoints in northern Africa (e.g. Chad) during the 1980s. In this hypothetical scenario, Libya raises the stakes by directly attacking a French naval task group in the Gulf of Sidra.

    Boston's Brawl, 1963: Hostilities broke out between NATO and the Warsaw Pact in late 1963. A small force centered on the missile cruiser Boston is tasked with prosecuting all WP forces in its patrol area, between the Falkland islands and Argentina.

    As always, the community scenario pack is available for download at the WarfareSims download section: http://www.warfaresims.com/?page_id=1876

    With the new additions, the number of total released scenarios now stands at 262!

    Which you always should. It's comprehensive package.

    It looks like Command's scenario authors are crafting new exciting works even on the beach! Miguel Molina has posted a new revision of the community scenario pack, featuring fourteen new scenarios.

    Saudi Arabia Crisis - Attack of IS, 2016: The IS terrorists control Yemen and part of Somalia and Saudi Arabia. Western forces are massing on Israel, Oman and Kuwait as a prelude to invasion of Saudi Arabia to counter the IS. But Iranian-backed elements within IS have one more card to play...

    Battle of Yavin, 1980: A plucky, rag-tag, and surprisingly well armed band of rebels has identified a weakness in an Imperial battle station. You're one of the pilots flying fighter cover for the attack. Good luck!

    Benny's Sweep, 1958: Pro-Communist rebels operating in the Philippines have seized control of part of the island of Luzon. Worse, the rebels are receiving aid from the Soviet Union, which hopes to trigger a Vietnam-like civil war in the Philippines. The situation is intolerable to the United States, but at the moment other international obligations mean that the only forces available to assist the government of the Philippines is a small task force based around the aircraft carrier Bennington.

    Kitty Comes To Kamchatka (The War That Never Was), 1989: Petropavlovsk is the only major Russian naval base that opens directly to the Pacific. That fact, plus its proximity to Alaska, made it a prime NATO target during the Cold War. This scenario, based upon the book by Michael A. Palmer, examines the ability of a single Carrier Task Force centered on the USS Kitty Hawk to attack and neutralize this important facility.

    Meteors Over Korea, 1952: A fictional raid conducted by Australian forces against the port of Haeju during the Korean War. When Australian forces, flying Gloster Meteors, first encountered North Korean MiG-15s, they suffered significant losses. Following this, the Meteor was used primarily as an attack aircraft rather than as an interceptor. This scenario assumes that no other forces were available to assist the Australians during this mission and that, for this reason, the Meteors from No. 77 squadron were employed both as attack and as escort aircraft.

    Northern Fury 6 - Keflavik Capers, 1994: War started Sunday and Keflavik was one of the first targets, a surprise missile attack which closed the two main runways and destroyed seven aircraft on the ground. You need time to reinforce and get the base onto a real war-footing. You must inflict damage and slow Soviet progress. Critical to success is the evacuation of non essential personnel and civilians.

    Northern Fury 7 - Plug the Gap, 1994: Steaming North as the fourth day of a new global war opens, you are in command of the HMS Invincible Task Group, and are heading into harm’s way! Dawn yesterday saw an amphibious assault around Trondheim. It looks like the Norwegians with the able help of 3 Royal Marine Commando Bde are holding, but pressure from the north is forcing the Norwegian Army to collapse southwards. Narvik fell late yesterday afternoon. STANAVFORLANT is withdrawing in tatters with the remaining surface units of the Norwegian fleet – they are out of it for a bit. Reports from Iceland are vague but it appears that Spetsnaz forces have captured several out-ports and key radar installations have been knocked out. Critical to success is the transport of two parachute battalions to establish initial defences in the Shetland and Faroe Islands.

    Northern Fury 8 - Hold the Line, 1994: You are the commander of the USS Enterprise CVBG, (CVN-65). Due to heightened tensions, your refit/re-fueling was rushed through and completed 8 months ahead of schedule. On the 12th of Feb, while completing your workup trials off of Puerto Rico, you were sent a FLASH message to precede north at best possible speed. Just before midnight last night you received a warning order from CINCLANT informing you of some late developments – including the fall of Iceland. Your orders were to position the TG north east of Newfoundland and prepare for heavy engagement.

    Phoenix of Indochina, 1949: The Japanese ship Hosho was a vital pioneer in naval aviation, being the first ship built as an aircraft carrier. Miraculously surviving World War II, she was historically converted to a transport and then scrapped. In this scenario, the Hosho was given to France as a war prize, and her new owners, faced with a war in Indochina, have wasted no time in putting her to use. Here the Hosho (renamed in a new language that keeps the original meaning) now fights over Haiphong.

    Russian Civil War (Jane's F/A-18) - Phase I, 2004: Due to severe economic downturns and the collapse of the former Soviet Union, the political and military leadership in Russia has splintered into two discrete factions. The result of these divisions is an armed civil conflict. The political and security interests of NATO members and the western world preclude a return to Soviet-era leadership in post-Soviet Russia. In response to this threat, and to a request for assistance by 'Blue Russian' forces, NATO and the United States NCA have dispatched the USS Ronald Reagan Carrier Strike Group to the waters north of the Kola Peninusula. Although overt hostilities have not yet begun against 'Red Russian' forces, they are imminent.

    Russian Civil War (Jane's F/A-18) - Phase II, 2004: During Phase I of the campaign the Reagan Strike Group conducted a systematic attrition of Red Russian air assets and integrated counter-air defenses on the Kola Peninsula. In Phase II, the strike group will perform the function for which it was deployed here: to prevent rebel forces from obtaining and using WMDs or their delivery vehicles.

    Russian Civil War (Jane's F/A-18) - Phase III, 2004: The USS Ronald Reagan Carrier Strike Group was deployed to the waters north of the Kola Peninusula to defeat the threat of Red Russian forces obtaining WMD's and their delivery vehicles. During the first two phases of the operation, the strike group rolled back Red Russian integrated air defenses on the Kola Peninsula and conducted operations to destroy and/or deny various WMD assets to Red Russian forces. With Blue Russian forces obtaining the upper hand and rapidly moving north, the strike group intends to accelerate the Red Russian collapse by attacking their logistics lines and forces from the rear, coupled with an amphibious raid by the USMC in order to further demoralize the rebel leadership and perhaps draw forces away from the Blue Russian advance.

    Uncle Mark's Tutorials #1 - NATO Surface Group vs. Soviet, 1985: World War III has started in 1985, and you are in charge of a small surface action group (SAG). Your job is to hunt Soviet ships and submarines and destroy them before they can get out into the Atlantic ocean, where they could threaten NATO convoys. Your forces consist of three warships--a British destroyer, a Dutch frigate, and a German frigate. You also have three helicopters for scouting the seas ahead of your ships and for hunting submarines.

    Uncle Mark's Tutorials #2 - English Jets over Uganda, 1973: In 1972, Idi Amin broke diplomatic relations with the UK and nationalized several British companies operating in Uganda. This scenario assumes that following this a series of incidents have led to increased hostilities between Uganda and the UK. The UK has decided that a show of force is necessary. Kenya has provided the UK with access to one of its air bases. You are in command of a strike force formed from detachments from a number of RAF squadrons. You have three basic missions. You are to first cripple the Ugandan air force in the sky and gain air superiority. You are also to fly reconnaissance missions over Entebbe. Finally, you are to conduct air strikes against selected ground targets.


    All new scenarios use the v438 versions of the DB3000 and CWDB databases, which are included in the v1.08 upgrade just released.

    As always, the community scenario pack is available for download at the WarfareSims download section: http://www.warfaresims.com/?page_id=1876

    With the new additions, the number of total released scenarios now stands at 275!

    I've been combing through my scenarios to see if any had developed any major issues, and found two (so far).

    In the brand-new Phoenix of Indochina, the "event is active" button for the Chinese aircraft got unchecked, so it's now rechecked.
    In the older Best of the West, Worst of the East, there were issues with the convoy stopping due to a manual path. Putting it on a support mission seemed to fix it.

    Fixed scenarios to replace the older ones attached.

    Miguel Molina has posted a new revision of the community scenario pack, the compendium of Command scenarios crafted by the user community. The new release contains twelve brand-new scenarios:

    WEC Davos Attacked by Terrorists, 2016: The World Economic Forum (WEC) is hosted every year in Davos, Switzerland, and attended by numerous political, diplomatic and industry leaders. This year, anonymous threats of a terrorist attack on the event have prompted heavier-than-usual security measures by the local authorities, including the Swiss police and army as well as support by Austrian and NATO air forces.

    Black Tiger I, 2015: The last remnants of USMC Afghanistan veterans are returning to CONUS and transiting the straits of Hormuz, along with the Carl Vinson CSG. But a covertly Russia-backed Iran is determined not to allow safe passage.

    Black Tiger II, 2015: Earlier today, a section of Superhornets was forced to intercept and drive off Iranian MiGs that flew out over Gulf waters to harrass and 'thump' a maritime patrol plane. As the excitement of the morning fades and night falls, there are growing indications that fresh trouble may be brewing...

    Black Tiger III, 2015: In the past two days, several incidents have increased tensions to the boiling point. Iranian fighters have harrassed U.S. maritime patrol aircraft and flown aggressively in the airspace surrounding the two naval groups. Even worse, several missile-armed gunboats fought a surface action against the 5th Fleet on the night of February 6th. Although Iran claims that the boats were manned by Al Quaeda insurgents and that they had nothing to do with the incident, intelligence sources believe the craft involved were actually Iranian naval units flying under false colors, and the diplomatic fallout hasn't stopped yet. This afternoon, Carrier Strike Group 3 will stand on station just west of the Strait of Hormuz, watching tensely as the Tarawa group makes the transit.

    Black Tiger IV, 2015: In the past two days, several incidents have increased tensions to the boiling point. Today the USS Carl Vinson and her escorts plan to transit the strait behind their amphibious group, but they have no idea the horror that awaits them. For decades, it has been nothing more than a respect for the strength of the United States that has kept the Strait of Hormuz open to the world. With Iran on the brink of becoming a nuclear power and with the windfall of top line military equipment they have obtained, the time has come for the regional balance of power to shift decisively. The Iranians are planning to hand the United States Navy the most crushing defeat it has ever seen, seize control of the Persian Gulf - and hold it.

    Black Tiger V, 2015: Bolstered by a new secret alliance with Russia and the influx of a wealth of modern aircraft and weapons systems, the Iranians have executed their plans to become a nuclear power and seize permanent control of the Persian Gulf region. A surprise attack on US ships transiting the Hormuz has resulted in heavy casualties and effective blocking of the straits. Iran capitalyzed on the ensuing confusion and temporary paralysis to successfully test its first nuclear weapon and declare itself a nuclear power. Now the U.S. Navy plans to carry out an operation to re-open the straits and restore freedom of navigation in the Persian Gulf. For this operation, a couple of USN late Cold War projects, the F-14E Tomcat 21 and the AIM-152A AAAM missile (the replacement for the Phoenix) are coming out of the mothballs.

    Trans-Atlantic Convoy Duty, 1985: WWIII has broken out in Europe with the classic Soviet thrust through the Fulda Gap. Unfortunately, the Soviets have also managed to take Iceland, taking effective control of the GIUK gap and leaving the northern convoy routes exposed and vulnerable. Defend the convoy and your battle group from Soviet attack.

    Facing the Bear (The War That Never Was), 1989: Northern Norway may have been the most important theater in the world if the Cold War ever went hot. US reinforcements had to be shipped across the Atlantic in convoys of slow transports vulnerable to Soviet submarines and long-range naval aviation assets. The outcomes of the titanic battles in Germany were completely dependent upon a much smaller battle that would have unfolded in a sparsely-populated, harsh Nordic environment. This scenario, playable from the Soviet side, tries to capture the first stage of that battle.

    Comte De Grasse's Squadron, 1988: World War III has broken out. Limited-scale chemical and tactical-nuclear exchanges have been performed, but so far confined strictly to the Central Front and at sea. During these first few critical days of the war, one of the goals of the American navy is to secure the vital sea lanes of the Atlantic so that convoys will be able to resupply NATO forces in the coming weeks. As part of this effort, a task force centered around the American destroyer Comte de Grasse has been assigned to patrol the waters near the Azores.

    Uncle Mark's Tutorials #3 - Yorktown in the Gulf of Sidra, 1985: Libya has long made the claim that the entire Gulf of Sidra is its territorial waters, as opposed to the normal 12-mile limit prescribed under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS). The US is sending a message by deliberately moving its ships through what the rest of the world considers international waters. This time the Aegis cruiser Yorktown, damaged from a recent explosion but still battle-worthy, has drawn the lot.

    Kingdom Come, 2018: Following an abortive assassination attempt on the King of Saudi Arabia, compelling links between the assassins and the Egyptian national intelligence agency, the Mukhabarat, quickly came to light. In the ensuing furor, diplomatic attempts to resolve the crisis between the two countries failed as each side dug in their heels. The Saudis would tolerate nothing less than having the responsible parties delivered to them immediately, while the Egyptians were still reeling from the realization that the Mukhabarat had initiated such an outrage without official sanction - but to save face would not admit so. With only hours to go before the deadline of the Saudi's ultimatum, the Egyptians came to the conclusion, under the circumstances, that war was the more tenable option. The Kingdom would oblige.

    Sinking A Battlewagon, 1990: With the construction of the Kirov-class battlecruisers, the US Navy once again faces armored, large enemy combatants. This experiment, with an Iowa as the target, tests the effectiveness of submarine weapons against such targets.

    Scenarios are coming out faster than I can play them! I need to either get more time to play, quicker at playing or play more than 1 at a time...

    Cheers and thanks to all of the scenario makers - much appreciated.

    Miguel Molina has posted a new revision of the community scenario pack, the compendium of Command scenarios crafted by the user community. The new release contains ten brand-new scenarios:

    Attack Sub Duel Off Hokkaido, 2003: This scenario assumes that tensions have increased between Japan and Russia.  Japanese Coast Guard vessels have fired on Russian fishing boats that have strayed into Japanese territorial waters.  Russia has threatened to attack Japanese shipping in retaliation. The submarine Harushio has been ordered to support a surface group transiting to Nagasaki. Russian attacks are highly likely.

    First Battle of Donetsk Airport, 2014: On May 16, 2014 the Ukrainian government started an anti-terrorist operation against pro-Russian insurgents in the Donetsk Oblast in early April 2014. Pro-Russian protesters and insurgents affiliated with the DPR captured and occupied numerous government buildings, towns, and territories in the region. In Donetsk city itself, many government buildings were under separatist control. During the morning of May 26, pro-Russian insurgents captured the terminal buildings of Donetsk International Airport, and demanded the withdrawal of government forces from the area. Soon after, Ukraine issued an ultimatum to the insurgents, demanding they surrender immediately. This was rejected, causing paratroopers to launch an assault on the airport, accompanied by airstrikes against insurgent positions.

    Here, There And Everywhere, 1965:  On July 24, 1965 an F-4C flying CAP over North Vietnam was shot down by a Russian-supplied SA-2 missile. This was the first attack by SAMs on US aircraft and the shootdown took Washington by surprise. A reprisal raid was decided. On July 27 a large raid of F-105s was launched against the sites and nearby barracks where the SAM crews were living. The costliest yet day of the Vietnam air war was about to unroll.

    Northern Fury #9.1 - Eisenhower Moves North, 1994: Entering the sixth day of WW3, the situation in the North Atlantic remains desperate.  The rapid capture of North Norway and Iceland have allowed the Soviets to surge almost 100 submarines into the Atlantic.  The Enterprise CVBG spent two difficult days blunting an attempt by the Red Banner Northern Fleet to interdict the sea lanes, she is now retiring, as are the major Soviet surface units, to replenish. Now, as Enterprise steams south, the USS Eisenhower, after three days of hard fighting in the Mediterranean, has passed through the pillars of Hercules and is heading north. She and the Carl Vinson CVBG will strike at Soviet forces around Iceland three days from now.

    Northern Fury #3 - Dagger To The Heart, 1994: A quiet Sunday morning in New York Harbour, it’s cold and windy and the main topic of conversation at the Sandy Hook, New Jersey Coast Guard Station is the ongoing fiasco at the Olympics...

    Scenario Editor Tutorial - Adding Weapons, 2015: Unlike other Command scenarios, this is intended to be played in scenario-editor mode. In this scenario, the player will add aircraft to an airfield, arm the aircraft, and then shoot down an easy target.

    Uncle Mark's Tutorials #4 - Boston Guards the Denmark Strait, 1985: Hostilities have broken out in Europe.  The war is only a few days old, but there has been limited use of chemical and tactical nuclear weapons, and American vessels have been cleared to use nuclear depth charges against enemy submarines. You are in command of the American nuclear attack submarine Boston.  You have been assigned to patrol the Denmark Strait, which lies between Iceland and Greenland.  Controlling the Denmark Strait would be vital in any conflict between NATO and the Soviet Union (or, today, Russia) as it connects the Norwegian Sea with the rest of the Atlantic Ocean.

    Uncle Mark's Tutorials #5 - Motozintla Incursion, 2015: Existing tensions between Mexico and Guatemala have increased in recent months.  Matters came to a head when Mexican forces fired on a Guatemalan fishing boat that had strayed into Mexico's territorial waters.  Accounts of the attack vary, but it appears that the fishing boat had initially refused to surrender to Mexican forces and had attempted to flee back into international waters. However, many believe the level of force used by Mexico was excessive. With Mexico's military already spread thin trying to keep the drug cartels under control, there is concern that Guatemala will launch some kind of punitive expedition. This scenario is designed to give players practice with air power vs. ground forces situations, on a low-intensity conflict.

    Waller Takes Charge, 1955: Hostilities erupted between NATO and the Soviet Union in 1955.  The war is less than one day old, and both sides have taken terrific losses in the Mediterranean. It falls to the American destroyer Waller and forces attached to her to seize control of the waters south of Crete.

    War of the Thirty-Fives, 2021: The Kurds have finally secured independence, and a windfall of now-rising oil prices and the investment opportunities that have come with formal recognition have allowed their (not entirely unjustifiably) paranoid leaders to embark on the kind of military overbuildup that has not been seen for a while. Among this buildup is a new air force, built from the ground up. With Western purchases coming with far too many strings attached, they have obtained a massive number of the most advanced Fulcrum variant, the MiG-35. Unfortunately, the Kurdish political problem has continued in Turkey, with emboldened Kurdish fighters in that country's east increasingly using their neighbor as a sanctuary. Clashes are an unfortunate routine. Now Ankara seeks to break the stalemate by using their finally-ready fifth generation stealth F-35s. But stealth or not, superior technology or not, the Kurdish government is prepared to defend its territorial integrity....


    Some of the above scenarios use the most recent version (v440) of the Command databases, which are included with the v1.09 RC11 (B746) update. We therefore recommend downloading and applying this update before using the new scenarios. Alternatively, players can hold for the official release of the v1.09 update which is approaching fast.

    Hmmm, I wasn't expecting the first 3 of Uncle Mark's Tutorials to remain in the CSP, as they are being added to the main game.

    Just curious, why leave them in there?
