Hey all,

I just started the One Two Punch scenario and I must say I am intrigued by the concept.

Before giving the scenario a serious go I've been toying around with the units to see what they actually do and what their capabilities are. Most of the scenario is making sense to me. I've managed to use the CUSVs to detect mines and I determined the differences between the Hunters and Killers. The ASW part seems straight-forward enough. Mine-clearing is completely new, though.

I figured out how to detect the mines, but the thing that eludes me is exactly how the Killers are supposed to clear mines. They don't seem to have any weapons other than the "mission module", but I don't know how to use it or whether it's actually used to clear mines.

Since they are UUVs I considered the possibility that I'm supposed to clear the mines by simply sending them into the minefield I wish to clear, but since I only have two Killer UUVs that would mean I can only clear two mines so I'm rather unsure.

Is there anyone who has more information on the exact workings of mine clearing?

Thanks!

That's probably a bit of a design flaw. The CUSVs are actually not very useful in that scenario and it's really just better to use conventional assets like helicopters to clear the minefield and use American subs to take out Chinese subs. In my playthrough of One Two Punch, the CUSVs didn't do anything for mine-clearance and only took out one sub.

Agreed the killer mine module is not working I used the hunting plus helos for cleaning

I keep around all the module just for give e bit of cover at the sub

I feared as much. Ended up clearing the mines using the mine sweeping helicopter.

Too bad, though. I found the concept of mine-clearing with those platforms and drones quite interesting.

Are there any other scenarios that involve mine-clearing?
