It's been a while since I actively played CMANO but I wanted to post an old scenario I worked on several years ago. Hopefully it can entertain some of you. Comments and thoughts are very welcome. Briefing below:
Updated the scenario to the latest DB and changed armament for the airbase strikes so hopefully everything will work fine now. Also here you have a google drive link to a correct set of photos for the Swedish DB3000:
Sweden vs. Soviet Union
Date/Time: July 30, 1985 / 0600 Z
Location: Southern Sweden
Playable Side: Sweden
Since the unfortunate sinking of the Russian sub U-137 (S-363) during a Soviet rescue mission in the Swedish archipelago 1981, the Soviet activity in the air, on and under the surface has sharply increased. Numerous violations of the Swedish territory has taken place since then.
In 1984, another Russian sub was sunk when it passed a controlled minefield in the inner archipelago of Stockholm. A few weeks ago, a Su-15 Flagon collided with the surface in the Baltic Sea while trying to pursue a Swedish SH-37 Viggen reconnaissance plane. However the Soviet Union accused Sweden of having shot down the aircraft.
After the U-137 incident and the following deterioration of Swedish-Soviet relations, Sweden has started membership negotiations with NATO. This has generated heavy Soviet protests.
A week ago, the Soviet Union put an ultimatum towards Sweden that they have to “stop its military aggressions against the Soviet Union along with all negotiations concerning a NATO membership”. If not, Soviet have to “take preventive actions to protect its interest and people”. The Swedish response was to order a partial military mobilization (the smaller alternative “code yellow”) to be prepared for any eventuality.
Almost all of the Swedish Air Force and Navy is now mobilized along with higher HQ’s and some Army units.
The Soviets on the other hand have been keeping a high readiness for some weeks now. Ominous rumors among the western intelligence community is starting to spread…
You are Lt. General Carl Björeman, Commander Military Area South (C Milo Syd). Due to operational reasons, Military Area West has been incorporated into your AOR. This morning the last mobilizing units in your area reported that they are deployed and ready for action.
Scenario designer notes:
The Swedish Order Of Battle is correct to 95 % along with the actual wartime air bases and radars at that time. Coastal artillery has been omitted due to playability reasons. I’ve also tried to depict a more “alive” scenario with subordinates and superior commanders giving orders and reports as input in your playing.
