Another one of the small ones from the battleset that was shared around a couple weeks ago.


This scenario is loosely based on Larry Bond’s ‘Battles of the Third World War’ for the Harpoon board game. © 1987 by Game Designers’ Workshop, Inc.

The Russians are Coming!

16 May 1991

To maintain strategic surprise, the Soviets have delayed sortieing any of their heavy surface units, this will change rapidly after H-Hour.

The Norwegians keep a Nordkapp Class patrol vessel on permanent station off the North Cape just to observe the operations of Soviet ships in the area, gather intelligence, report on weather and alert other forces if hostile intentions are detected.



Designer notes:

· The original intent of the scenario was to activate the Norwegian Fast Attack Craft once Soviet forces get within gun range of the Andenes patrol vessel. Although possible to set this up with Lua code, it is not necessary. Instead, the FACs will be activated at a random time

· The victory conditions in the original scenario are needlessly complex and have been simplified

Note: this is quite simple to play as the Soviet player and a bit tricky as the NATO. So if you’re just starting out choosing Red will give you a relatively easy game but you can experiment EMCON, formations and maneuver. A more advanced player should try a hand as the Blue player.

Thanks for another nice small scenario! When I played as Red side and I wanted to use a special action for another Sunburns, than the following error message displayed and the script failed. Thanks.

Thanks Mike

Was that on a 2nd set of Sunburns? Did the first one work?

Great work, played from the Norway side and I loved it. I have that booklet about 3WW and played the same battle with Harpoon4 boradgame.
Thanks for converting it.
Are you planning to do others? Bear hug, Get the kiev and the Bastion could be good.

Glad you enjoyed it.

Yes - have been distracted with Northern Fury recently and real life but do intend to do the rest. Unless others want to do them that is.

Cheers

I started working on "The Bastion" as an introduction to scenario creation. As it's my first one, and I'm learning as I'm going, I don't have an ETA.
