From: near Rome, Italy
Finally I've completed the scenario.
I'll post it here in its 4th revision. For Steam users, it was just published on Steam Workshop too.
Thanks to all for the help and advices I used in its development.
In September 2021, United States decides to establish a permanent Strategic Bomber Wing on Sigonella NATO Air Base in Sicily, Italy.
They should act as a deterrence force agains further Russian actions in Crimea (Ukraine) and Syria.
After few months, winds of war rises: a Russian Carrier Strike Group is instructed to plan and execute a surgical strike on Sigonella Air Base, trying to destroy the Strategic B-2 Stealth Bombers and Strategic B-1B Transonic Bombers here stationed, with an unexpected retaliatory and higly provocative action.
The Scenario is playable from:
- NATO Italian Air Bases, having at disposal the aircrafts and missile batteries in Sigonella and Gioia del Colle Air Bases, with the task of completely sunk the CV Admiral Kuznetsov and prevent the destruction of the Strategic Bombers, possibly disabling the entire enemy Surface Naval Group.
- Russian Carrier Strike Group led by CV Admiral Kuznetsov and several Guided Missile Cruisers, which task is to completely destroy at least one group of Strategic Bombers, with the assistance of an Attack Submarine. Three Admiral Nakhimov Guided Missile Cruisers are suited to attack Sigonella Air Base, since they are equipped with Kalibr and Onyx Missiles.
- United States Navy Surface Group, composed by two of the last type of Ticonderoga AEGIS Guided Missile Cruisers, an Arleigh Burke Destroyer and an Auxiliary Unit, all assisted by an Attack Submarine. The Group was overseeing what they thought was a Russian military exercise, when the enemy starts the aggression. NATO and U.S. Navy were caught by surprise, so no U.S. Aircraft Carrier were deployed in the area. The task of the U.S. Navy Missile Cruisers and Destroyer is to sunk CV Admiral Kuznetsov Ship at all costs, despite their numerical inferiority, and prevent the destruction of the Stategic Bombers at Sigonella.
Finally, NATO and U.S. Intelligence has gathered information about an high chance of a Lybian Air Force Russian support attack on Sigonella Air Base, so if played by one of these two sides, player must be very careful.
