Exercise Dynamic Mongoose 2015. 4-14 May 2015. Historical Training Scenario.


A Harpoon Commander's Edition scenario for the EC2003 Battle for GIUK Gap Battleset and the HCDB-150502 1980-2015 era Platform Database or the HCDB2-170319 new standard 1980-2025 era Platform Database. This scenario is designed with the Advanced Scenario Editor and to be run with HCE 2015.008+ or later.

This scenario is designed to be played from the Blue/NATO side or from the Red/NATO side. You should play a few times first the Blue side to avoid spoilers, and only later play the Red side.


After the eventful year of 2014 and the not less eventful first four months of 2015 and with the World beginning the so-called Second Cold War, the President of Russia Vladimir Putin (ex-KGB lieutenant colonel) was showing clearly his plan to recover the Russian Empire and later Soviet territories for reinstitute the greatness of his Russia, and to guarantee his passage on the History as saviour of the Rodina.
From May 2014 Putin provoked in succession the Crimea, Ukraine, Donetsk, Baltic States, October 2014 Swedish submarine incursion, G-20 Brisbane meeting naval crisis, November 2014 Faslane submarine incident, frigate Yaroslav Mudryy February "Channel Dash", April 2015 Finnish submarine incursion (for many observers causing the pre-mobilization of Finland reserve forces), and constant and multiple overflies with military warplanes entangled in potential incidents with commercial flights.
When the big anti-submarine exercise Dynamic Mongoose did begin in 4 May 2015 was interpreted by many journalists as an answer to the latest Russian actions and menacing postures, but it was actually a yearly exercise. But in the current world situation was legit to think otherwise, more with the intervention in the exercise of Swedish Navy elements, probably as consequence of the Russian-attributed Swedish submarine incident of October 2014, as Sweden is not a NATO member, but did participate as partner.


Of course this is a training exercise and actually shots, torpedoes and missiles aren't fired and nobody is hurt ...

On force composition:
The NATO and Swedish forces are historically correct, aside the number of helicopters and ASW patrol aircraft (were present three planes, very probably 2xGerman P-3C Orion and 1xFrench Atlantique 2, as in Dynamic Mongoose 2014).
After a few hours of search I did find almost all the NATO warships and submarine present, only lacking the identity of Norwegian and US submarines, and confirmation of the French ships as D646 Latouche-Treville, and the oiler Durance-class Somme A631 based at Brest (my guess was correct at last).
And later surprisingly I found the complete force naval composition in an unexpected source (I almost don't see videos usually), here, in the minute 1.36 is the complete force in the log of German submarine U33!: https://www.dvidshub...-1#.VU8giGAcR-E

The lacking submarines were Norwegian Type 210 Utvaer, and not least than the sorpresive USS Seawolf (SSN21), for many based at the West Coast!

16 May 2015 modification:
- I see now submarine group ADU (a Kilo-class) is in the Blue side, with absurd and unexpected game results.
- Replaced with a more consequent Green/Neutral group with the same Kilo-class submarine.
(My daltonism!)

A simple after action report ...









Achieved minimum victory after sinking two submarines, the US Navy's Seawolf class USS Seawolf (SSN-21) and the Royal Norwegian Navy's Ula class HNoMS Utvaer (S303).


But not before the Seawolf managed to put two Mk 48 torpedoes into the German Navy's Rhon class tanker Spessart (A1442).
