This is my first attempt at a scenario utilizing Cargo Ops. The primary goal is the Amphibious Assault on Abu Musa and the Tunb islands. With the U.S. supporting the UAE claim to those islands during rising tensions with Iran. You have a crippled tanker you need to escort to safety at the beginning of the scenario but your main goal is to take Abu Musa, Greater Tunb and Lesser Tunb islands from Iran.
A MAJOR DESIGN GOAL was to keep the scenario's scope limited! So a lot of things you will think should be in there aren't! Please read the briefings closely most of your questions as to 'why" are answered! This is my second foray into this area. The first, my "Hormuz" scenario started with the simple question of, "what would happen if Iran mined the Straits of Hormuz?" Well from that simple question I created a monster that stretched from Pakistan to Iraq, had hundreds of merchant vessels, SSM's, THAADs, and is an absolutely unplayable mess (at least I don't want to play it ever again!). SO I made design decisions that you will question, most of the GCC is neutral and the U.S. is respecting that neutrality by basing the aircraft used solely from the UAE. Realistic? No probably not but it is a convenient fiction that solves a lot of problems with "Scenario Mission Creep!" Same with the "Subs, and Drones and THAADs, Oh My!" I could have added a lot more of them but again that wasn't the scenario goal. there are no USN SSNs or SSGNs (and who ever thought I could design a scenario without an SSGN!). So the idea is to keep things as limited to the Abu Musa area as possible and keep things as realistic as possible, while still playable.
Listen I am the king of the monster, unplayable scenario, AKA "Scenario Mission Creep," trust me, you will have fun blowing stuff up and launching the amphibious assaults.
BOTTOM LINE, please read the scenario description closely before you ask, "where is..."
