  1. The Trap V 4.0

    The Trap v 4.0
     
    A scenario exclusively for Harpoon 3 ANW and the ANW DB 2.2 (posted here at Harpgamer)
    by Ralf Koelbach
    September, 2009
     
    The Trap is a classical Cold War scenario. I wrote it long ago for Harpoon 2, but could not make it as large as I liked because of H2´s performance problems.
     
    These problems have gone Though the scen is really large, it should run fast enough on modern PC´s.
     
    While it was two-sided back then I have rewritten it as US only, thus making the AI controlled side FAR stronger then it was. All bases, all missions have been redone for adding additional punch to your opponent.
     
    So here you meet them all:
     
    - squadrons of the deadly Soviet long range bombers, loaded with supersonic killer missiles
    - the classical US carrier group
    - the typical Cold War carrier air wings
    - subs, subs, subs...
     
    ..combined with the ANW feature ship-to-ship underway replenishment. This is not luxury here, it is neccesary for the survival of your carrier group.
     
    High Noon in the Norwegian Sea!
     
    Hope you enjoy it!

  3. Istiqlal on Patrol (2015)

    My 18th scenario of 2013...
     
    In the near future, tensions between Iran and Kuwait have increased. Kuwait sends a few of its vessels to "show the flag" by patrolling the Eastern part of its Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). But will Iran consider this a provocation and use it as an excuse to attack?

    (Author's note: I found this one surprisingly challenging when I was testing it, perhaps because it is one of those small scenarios where every asset counts and a couple of mistakes early on can make it very hard to complete your mission.)

  6. Baltic Squeeze (1980)

    My 24th scenario of the year...
     
    A nice, basic Cold War scenario, set in 1980, in which West German forces must ambush a Soviet convoy headed for East Germany. It's one of those scenarios where, if you are careful, it is not too hard to win, but if you are not careful, it is very easy to lose.

  7. Kurils - Sea of Japan

    The Kuril Islands is the setting for this dispute between Russia and Japan. The Russsians invaded the Kurils near the end of World War II and Japan wants these islands back. Neither side has signed a formal peace treaty following the war because of the Kurils Islands. Whenever negotiations take place, Japan brings up the Kurils in an effort to get them returned. So far, the Russians have not yielded, despite their inability to support the Islands. The economic situation of the Kurils and its native, largely Japanese, population is deterioriating as each day passes. This scenario explores one of the options available to the Japanese Government, should political efforts and negotiations continue to fail.

  8. Okinawa II - Western Pacific

    As the Western economies continued toward collapse, Japan moved forward in its desire to reassert dominance in the Far East. In order to force the United States to relinquish its forward bases in the Pacific, the Japanes military moved into action. A naval and air blockade was placed around Okinawa Island.
    The US government, backed by strong public opinion, decided to respond with a show of military force. The Japanese, knowing they could not stand toe-to-toe with the US Navy, decided the best option would be to operate within range of their land based aircraft. They hoped that preventing the resupply of Okinawa, and, in the course of maintaining the blockade, inflicting significant losses on the US Navy, would cause the US Government to reconsider their claims on Okinawa.

  9. The Cold North - The North Atlantic

    The Russian military has been experiencing a loss of discipline and an increase of desertions and mutinies among its ranks brought on by little or no pay and loss of morale. Of late, several older ex-Soviet warships that were laid up prior to decommissioning have turned up missing. More disturbing is the fact that the ammunition for these warships stored in a nearby warehouse, prior to their destruction have also turned up missing. In another development, Oil has been discovered in and around the coast of northern Greenland and several oilrigs and a base camp has been set up. Contact has been lost with the whole operation. It is feared that an unknown force has seized the facilities. NATO has been tasked to investigate.

  10. JAPFISH - Sea of Japan

    based on an original HC scenario by Mark Gellis
    Fish populations around the world have declined due to global warming, overfishing, and other factors. Japan has responded to dwindling catches by fishing closer and closer to parts of the Russian coast where fish are still relatively abundant. It is not clear whether Japanese fishing boats has actually violated Russian territorial waters or, if they have, how often it has happened, but Russia believes its territory is being violated. The situation has become very tense. Russian fishermen have fired shots at Japanese fishing boats. Japan has responded by sending armed escorts to accompany fishing fleets. Russia has declared this an unacceptable provocation.

  12. ColdWar

    The End of the Cold War
     
    Something went entirely wrong, and it happened so fast that nobody could recall immediately when and where it started. The Soviets were under the impression that NATO was preparing for an attack on the motherland and decreed that securing Iceland for a prolonged war was vital to victory; thus they mobilized each operational vessel in the Northern Fleet and managed to occupy the Faroes as a prelude. NATO then, too, scrambled every available asset in the North Atlantic, and when the first shot (a nuclear-tipped torpedo) was fired and sank a Dutch frigate, all hell broke loose.

  13. SvaOil1

    Svalbard Oil Battleset
     
    The discovery of the third largest oil and gas reserves on the planet near the Svalbard Islands led to a dispute with Russia, who has mining rights and maintains settlements on Spitsbergen, claiming that the islands belong to the chain of islands of Franz Josef Land.
     
    Svalbard Oil 1: The Blockade
     
    In a surprise move Russia landed troops in Longyearbyen ten days ago and occupied some of the major oil platforms.
     
    Norway filed a protest with the UN and requested formal NATO assistance, which immediately was granted. NATO is now assembling forces to break the blockade around the Svalbards, but Norway does not want to wait and intends to show the flag, while Russia reinforces her new possessions.

  14. SvaOil2

    Svalbard Oil Battleset
     
    The discovery of the third largest oil and gas reserves on the planet near the Svalbard Islands led to a dispute with Russia, who has mining rights and maintains settlements on Spitsbergen, claiming that the islands belong to the chain of islands of Franz Josef Land.
     
    Svalbard Oil 2: NATO Strikes Back
     
    The attempt of the Royal Norwegian Navy to settle the dispute over the Svalbard Islands with rather limited resources was a failure, though the two Norwegian submarines managed to sink two warships before being sunk themselves.
     
    NATO reaction is quick, aggressive and resourceful: A British CVBG, a Dutch PHIBRON and a German SAG are sailing towards the Svalbards, supported by a number of nuclear and diesel attack submarines. The message is evident: Europe wants to show it can deal with the crisis without the help of the policeman from across the Atlantic, though there are some U.S. units and aircraft in the area ready to assist.
     
    But the Russian resolve will soon become apparent. Russia has every intention to keep her occupied new territories as well as the vast oil and gas reserves discovered there and has mobilized everything still available in her military inventory to do so.
     
    These scenarios have been tested with the Harpoon 3.6 game engine, but not Harpoon: ANW. No warranty or representation regarding compatibility or function with ANW is given or implied.

  15. Perisher

    Perisher Special
     
    The USA have agreed a joint exercise with Canada to simulate the forced entry into a hostile country, using moderate air force assets, shore batteries modeling Silkworm launchers and frigates simulating missile boats. Canadian diesel submarines and one British SSN are participating; for the British commander this is a Perisher Special giving him the opportunity to try out an attack on a sophisticated carrier battle group.

  18. The Duel V 3.0

    The Duel V 3.0
    A scenario for Harpoon 3 ANW and the ANW DB
     
    written by Ralf Koelbach
    rkoelbach@yahoo.com
     
    This scenario was, if I remember correctly, my first scen I wrote for and with Harpoon 2, back then in 1994 or so.
     
    It bases on the Duel scen in Harpoon Classic, GIUK Battleset, but incorporates a lot of improvements.
     
    This version 3.0 is Nato side only.
     
    Have fun !

  19. Okinawa - modified version

    Hi Pooners,
     
    long time ago I started to modify some Harpoon 2 stock scenarios in order to make them more challenging. Right now, waiting for 3.10, I thought it may be nice to convert some of them to Harpoon 3 ANW V 3.9.4 while still using the Standard Database everybody has.
     
    The first scen is a modification of "Okinawa", battleset Global Conflicts 1".
     
    It should be much more thrilling than the original - enjoy!
     
     
    Regards,
    Ralf

  20. Attacking the Fortress for Harpoon 3.6 and db2000

    Attacking the Fortress
     
    A scenario for Harpoon 3.6 and db2000 (editor: Ragnar Emsoy)
    by
    Ralf Koelbach
     
    I wrote "Attacking the Fortress" back in 2004. It was my first built-from-scratch Harpoon 3 scenario. It took me a long time to write it since it should be as realistic as possible. This was only achievable by massive support from Ragnar Emsoy who taught me a lot about Harpoon 3, the db2000 and naval warfare in that time.
     
    Enjoy!

  21. A Fight to the Death (mod. version ANW / HUD3)

    Hello Pooners,
     
    " A Fight to the Death" maybe is the most discussed and debated stock scen, delivered with the very first battleset for Harpoon 2 back in 1994.
     
    Several pooners have written their own modification of this thrilling scen. In the HUD 3 version currently available, there is a modified version based on discussions Darren and I had.
     
    Here now is another variation, my "personal edition".
     
    Heavily modified, carrier air wings updated to modern times, Russians armed to the teeth
     
    For ANW / HUE 3.10 and the included HUD 3 V 1.5.0 release.
     
    Have fun!

  22. Visit to Valdez (mod. version)

    Visit to Valdez (mod. version)
     
    Scenario for Harpoon 3 ANW 3.9.4 and HUD 3 V 1.3 as of 2009-06-12
     
     
    The original "Visit to Valdez" scenario is part of the "Cold War" Battleset. When it first came out back in 1996 or so, it was unplayable on the machines of that time. Fortunately, modern hardware makes playing even very large scenarios possible.
     
    This version is my interpretation of this complex scen. It is playable one side only - the Russian/Soviet side.
     
    Many pooners favor playing Us side because of the rich inventory and their beloved carriers.
     
    In this scenario you will lack nothing: the carrier is in, tons of modern Russian aircraft, their best subs.
     
    Since the map is very large, this one is like a good game of chess: you can shift the battle from wing to another, play around your opponent and so on.
     
    As long as you manage to destroy the American facilities.
     
    Be sure - you are up against the best assets the US have.
     
    Enjoy!

  23. Atlantic Clash - scenario for H3 ANW and the HUD 3

    Hi Pooners,
     
    my first scenario for H3 ANW (HUE), since HUE has been released. It is written for and with Darren´s HUD 3 V 1.5 database.
     
    Story: What would happen, if a current US CVBG clashes with a strong Russian CVBG, centered around the CVN Kusnetzov and full of up-to-date Flankers and Fulcrums?
     
    This one is a nice duel I think. Be careful when using time compression
     
    Hope you´ve fun.

    The war is in a critical phase. Our efforts to control the Atlantic Ocean are hindered by the Bravo base on Iceland.
     
     
     
    Mission
     
    In order to gain access to the Atlantic, we must take the hostile base on Iceland.
     
     
     
    Execution
     
    Move your task force towards the zone marked by the three refpoints. Proceed with care. Your LST must be on station there for at least four hours in order to unload troops and equipment.
     
     
     
    In order to achieve that, conduct the following steps:
     
    1. Gain air superiority
     
    2. Take out hostile SAM units and ground forces.
     
    3. First take the landing zone in the Southwest. Use it as a beachhead.
     
    4. Then take facility after facility of the base with your helos.
     
    5. Now come close with your carrier group. The LST can unload.
