World War III 1989 #3: Alfa on the run
By Klaus Behrmann

British frigates have just completed an escort mission to deploy Royal Marines to Reykjavik in expectation of a Warsaw Pact attack. The mission was a success, but one frigate encountered engine malfunctions and had to slow down. Now, the frigate is radioing in that she is under attack by an unidentified, fast-moving submarine.

Wolf and Rabbit
By Klaus Behrmann

LOCATION: US EAST COAST
DATE/TIME: 12 FEBRUARY 2003, 12:00 H Z

Since end of the 1990ies, the USN is using their SSBNs more conventionally, which sometimes raises the neck hairs of certain admirals. Part of a Fleet Examination Exercise very often is one SSBN against another in a so-called Wolf and Rabbit role.

As a surprise, however, occasionally the configuration is altered, and the skipper of the SSBN does not know that his opponent in reality is a SSN. But, to even the score, the SSBN skipper at times also may get some unannounced support from the surface.

The Typhoon Defection
By Klaus Behrmann

LOCATION: EAST ASIA
DATE/TIME: 20 FEBRUARY 2003, 17:00 H Z

The deal between China and Russia to purchase two Typhoon-class SSBNs together with nuclear warheads did not materialize - mainly because Beijing found a cheaper alternative: a Russian submarine captain is willing to defect with his boat to China for a "fee" of USD 20 or more millions.

When his defection is detected, the hunt begins, and Russia alerts every possible subhunter in East Asia. However, the Chinese want their prize at all costs...

THIS SCENARIO SHOULD BE PLAYED WITH THE NUCLEAR OPTION ENABLED.

The Saudi Revolution
By Klaus Behrmann

LOCATION: MIDDLE EAST
DATE/TIME: 14 MAY 2005, 18:00 H Z

Saudi fundamendalists (supported by Iranian subversives) managed to force the Saudi King into exile and gained the support of the Saudi forces. This development was again supported by an aggressive stand from Iraq (after the embargo was lifted two years ago).

Suddenly, it became apparent that these three nations intend to pursue joint plans to eradicate the Israeli nation from the map.

U.S. and Britsh forces in the region form task groups to stop such a move and their first priority is to destroy or to disable all the equipment delivered by the West (and the East in the case of re-armed Iraq and Iran) on the ground and in the air.

THIS SCENARIO SHOULD BE PLAYED WITH THE NUCLEAR OPTION ENABLED.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Orders for Commander U.S. operations:

GENERAL
The fundamentalist revolution in Saudi Arabia has gained - unexpectedly - the full support of the Saudi military and National Guard. It is confirmed that Iranian and Iraqi activists are in the kingdom and spearheading the moves of the new Revolutionary Council.

INTELLIGENCE
Operation RE-TAKE - the destruction of US- and UK-supplied facilities, aircraft, and naval assets - has been compromised. The latest satellite pass confirms that Saudi forces are on full alert and that the Saudi fleet has left their home ports of Jeddah and Dammam.

DIA believes that both Iran and Iraq might intervene in the forthcoming conflict once our combined U.S./U.K. attack on Saudi Arabia is launched.

A small Iranian SAG left Bushehr three hours ago. All other Iranian naval assets are - except their three Kilos - in port. The Kilos left Chah Bahr six days ago and are believed to be operating within the Arabian Gulf.

Two days ago, Iran returned two bomber squadrons to Iraq; including Fencers, Badgers, and Blinders.

Only the Iraqi bases in Baghdad and Umm Qasr are operational. Iran operates fighter squadrons from Chah Bahr, Bandar Abbas, and Tehran.

Furthermore, we have reliable information from sources loyal to the USA that an attack on our facilities on Bahrain is imminent.

ORDERS
Your first priority is the protection of the SAG in Bahraini waters and our facilities at Sheikh Isa AB. The same priority level has been given to the protection of the British PHIBRON heading for the Strait of Hormuz as the anti-air capability of our British allies is limited at best.

British forces will launch independent strikes at enemy facilities and it might be prudent to provide additional protection for their strike aircraft.

Once air superiority has been established, destroy the Saudi C3I facilities and disable the Saudi Air Force. It is crucial that the Saudi AWACS planes are eliminated. Destroy as many Saudi fighters and fighter-bombers as possible.

In the event of Iranian or Iraqi intervention, launch strikes on Tehran and Baghdad and destroy the command facilities. At the same time, if feasible, destroy the Iranian and Iraqi ministries of defence to teach the radicals a lesson that the USA can hit them anywhere. Bear in mind, however, that Baghdad must be considered well protected and that any air strike should be well planned and executed in conjunction with cruise missile attacks.

The Saudi base at Khamis Mushayt is another high priority target.

In case of Iranian intervention, land the SEALS near Chah Bahr and destroy the naval facilities at this base.

Ensure that the opposition forces do not attack commercial shipping.

Syrian, Lebanese, Jordanian, Israeli, Emirati, Ethiopian, Yemeni, Sudanese, and Qatari air space is neutral.

EXECUTION
At your discretion. However, it is essential that all fighters based in Sheikh Isa AB be launched immediately for the protection of the facilities and the nearby SAG. These fighters should be re-inforced immediately by detachments from the CVBG operating in the Arabian Sea and our temporary base in Masirah.

FURTHERMORE, NOTE THAT ALL AMERICAN PLANES WHICH LAND REFUELING IN CAIRO CAN ONLY BE REPLENISHED IN INCIRLIK.

Once you are out of the Red Sea, combine the Stragglers, Main Force and Advance Group into a professional Task Force.

FLAG - AGF 11 CORONADO

RECOMMENDED EMCON: B (Limited emissions)

(Victory Conditons: Eradicate everything from the map, including at least two Kilos, and protect your amphibious assets and supply ships.)

Battle of the Maldives
By Quinton Van Zyl

DATE: 15 September 1992
TIME: 07:00:00 Zulu
LOCATION: Maldive Islands Indian Ocean

Last year Russian diplomats approached the Maldivian president concerning a massive Russian economic assistance package in return for the use of two airfields in the Maldives. Under pressure from the USA the offer was rejected. The government was then toppled three

weeks later by a Russian-supported coup and the Russians were then invited to lease the two airfields. Six weeks ago another coup took place, this one secretly sponsored by the CIA and the former president was reinstated. All Russian diplomats were expelled and the US was invited to construct bases on several islands in the Maldives. Three weeks ago, 200 members of a US navy construction battalion arrived on Male island to begin work on Hulule airfield. Only a week ago US Marine Corps squadron VMA-231, flying AV-8B VSTOL aircraft dployed to Hulule. A few days later a detachment of US Navy P-3C Orion patrol aircraft from squadron VP-22 also deployed to the airfield.

After a year of silence concerning the Maldives issue, the Indian government has demanded all US military personnel to leave the Maldives at once. "India is firmly committed to maintaining the Indian Ocean as a zone of peace, we cannot tolerate American nuclear weapons only 200 miles from our coast."

The American Secretary of State has responded by saying that the US will not leave unless firm assurances are given that the Russians will not be permitted to intervene in the internal affairs of the Maldives again.

The Indian Prime Minister has called the commander of the Indian Navy's southern Fleet to New Delhi, Ordering him to conduct air strikes against Hulule if the Americans do not depart within the next 48 hours. Furthermore, the southern fleet has been directed to blockade Male Atoll and prevent seaborne reinforcement and ressupply of the American airfield. Although the Indian admiral has privately called the Prime Minister's action as "Madness", he is reluctantly preparing his naval and air forces to execute the plan.

************************
NOTES:
* In this scenario, the Indian navy has the Delhi class destroyer two years earlier than in reality.
* This scenario is based upon a scenario that came with the Avalon Hill computer game "5th Fleet".

Rise of the Dragon #2: Brothers in Arms
By Marco Cipollini

CHINA vs TAIWAN

LOCATION: Taiwan Strait
DATE/TIME: 5 August 2002; 12:00:00

"Alea iacta est!" - Caesar, 49 B.C.
"The die is cast!"

After the Spratly incident, where Chinese naval forces sank several ROC's ships, war was inevitable.

Several hundred PLA surface-to-surace missiles have been moved into launch position and prepared to fire. Large numbers of combat aircraft have been relocated to bases close to Taiwan to boost the fighter strenght.

ROC's air force is in state of maximum alert. All SAM batteries are ready and active; AEW planes are flying continuously and warplanes are patroling the skies.

You will now see how bloody a brother vs brother fight can be!
