VonWulfen -> Recommend Surface Ships scenarios for new players? (12/23/2020 8:07:10 PM)

Hi all.
I am looking for recommendations for new player friendly surface ship scenarios.
Ones that only feature a single or a small number of ships with associated helicopter/RHIB small boat assets.
I would be especially interested in UK Royal Navy units :)
Cheers :)

A simple one is Battle of Latakia from the standalone scenarios.

Also, First Contact series are good ones.

If you donít mind waiting many hours for the enemy to open fire first, South of Crete was excellent. I just finished it with a major victory. Just make sure that your weapon systems are changed from hold tight to attack hostiles to defend against their first wave of missiles. The only Aircraft are P3s which are computer controlled and find some Russian subs for you to vector helicopters onto and stay with until the war starts. Quite an exciting scenario with a lot of anticipation building up to the start of the war. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Brief hijack ==

Thanks for the tip Tom. I'll give South of Crete a try after my current game.

Sorry Von Wulfen, back over to your thread.

Glad you enjoyed it!

I'll echo the First Contact scenarios as good options. They can also function as a sort of tutorial, showcasing how surface warfare has evolved over the course of the game's timeframe.

STANAVFOR Atlantic Gets to Work, in the Community Scenario Pack, is a smallish manageable surface action. There are a couple of submarines involved, but your primary force is 5 or 6 surface ships from different navies, so it has an interesting variety of units to operate.

I second (or third) the series of First Contact scenarios. The STANAVFOR scenario ups things a bit with destroyers and one CG, with helicopters over the patrol boat actions of First Contact.

Many thanks, all.
Looking forward to trying all the suggested scenarios :)
