Thanks for the feedback everyone!
Scenario #1 (Involves exercise Trojan Footprint 20) has already been in the works for a while now, but ill try and get it out as fast as I can.The Air Force is keeping me busy these next three months but ill find some time to work on this!
I don't want to spoil too much of the background of this series, but essentially it takes place in the year 2020, so not much has changed. Obviously, if we're talking about realism here, the chances of a full on assault of the Baltic States by Russia is very very small. Instead, hybrid warfare (such as some of the tactics we saw in Ukraine) would be more predictable. This scenario set will jump into this with political, cyber, economic, and unconventional warfare as it is most likely what we will see in the future (and have seen in recent years!).
That being said, hybrid warfare alone doesn't make for the most exciting scenarios. So in order to counter this, the first batch of scenarios will focus on more of an unconventional hybrid warfare approach with possibly the ethnic Russian populations in Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania trying to break off with the support of Russia. This is similar to what we've seen in Ukraine and Crimea, so there is a big possibility something similar can happen in the Baltics. However, from here, *SPOILER* the situation will expand into a much larger conflict. Even if this is fairly unlikely, it is important to still look at how everything would go down if the worst-case-scenario unfolded. Plus it makes for some very very interesting, large scenarios with a much longer campaign!
I know I haven't really delved into the background and how all of this leads up, but that's on purpose. I'd rather take the time to craft a very accurate, well thought out back story rather than give you guys some BS "Oh Russia and NATO and WWIII and Nukes and BLAH". I want this to be a quality scenario set that actually portrays what we could see in the near future and helps people get familiar to what a conflict could look like. So if this stuff takes a while, I'm sorry in advance, but I'd rather produce something you guys genuinely enjoy and can get behind rather than just some random scenarios!
If anyone has any questions or thoughts or anything, feel free to DM me!
