  1. some first (few) news about the interceptions of Iranian missiles targeting Iran 14 april 2024, to crunch and get more numbers on probabilities and types (as example, two USN DDGs in Eastern Med have intercept only 3 of 120 ballistic missiles launched from Iran): https://edition.cnn.com/2024/04/14/middleeast/israel-air-missile-defense-iran-attack-intl-hnk-ml/index.html

  3. Notes on some platforms: - Pakistani P-3C are of unknown availability, systems and weapons, perhaps Mk46 Mod5 ASW torpedoes, rarely Swedish Tp43 or the outdated Italian A.244 (As per Jane's 2015-2016), but with state of art AGM-84L Harpoon II. In consequence to represent it as with updated ASW systems are employed USN P-3C-III Orion 86. Six aircrafts available in 2019. - Very probably only one Pakistani ATR-72 present at the scenario date, and yet without ASW capabilities. It is not represented. - The few (or speculative, as per SIPRI are HQ-9/P delivered 2021) Pakistani HQ-22 SAMs (per Military Balance, delivered 2023) are represented by more or less equivalent HQ-15, showing the Pakistani capability to perturb the use of Indian ASW aircraft near its coast, and at the same time preventing a escalade employing fighter to shoot down the Indian ASW aircrafts. Its placements are purely hypothetical. But forget that, later I reckon the scenario is settled before any very long range SAM delivery, in 2019 Pakistan had only HQ-16. - The Indian Scorpene-class submarines are equipped with previously owned German SUT torpedoes, because the failed by military-political corruption acquisition process of more modern torpedoes.
  4. View File Hot Fishes in Hot Waters, February 2019. Historical Scenario. A Harpoon Commander's Edition scenario for EC2003 IOPG Battleset and the HCDB2-170308 new standard 1980-2025 Platform Database. This scenario is designed with advanced Scenario Editor and to be run with HCE 2015.008+ or later. This scenario is designed to be played from the Blue/Indian side or from the Red/Pakistani side. You should play a few times first the Blue side to avoid spoilers, and only later play the Red side. Image: INS Chakra (II) S72 (ex Russian Pacific Fleet K-152 Nerpa), a Project 971I/Akula-class nuclear attack submarine, leased from Russia for India, and employed on Indian waters from 29 March 2012 to 5 June 2021, when returned to Russia in Vladivostok. Official Indian Armed Forces photo 31 March 2012 in fair use, and took from Wikipedia Commons. In the immediate aftermath of the 14 February 2019 Pulwama terrorist attack, on the continuous Indian-Pakistani conflict for Jammu and Kashmir, succeeded by the Indian retaliation by the 26 February 2019 confuse Balakot airstrike, a intermediate submarine action is usually beleaguered. Soon after the Pulwama terror attack, on February 19 India pulled out its Navy from the exercise TROPEX 19 and deployed a major part of its fleet with 60 vessels to March 10, from the Andaman and Nicobar islands to close to Pakistani territorial waters, apparently hunting for the Pakistani Agosta 90B-class submarine Saad, improved with an AIP system. Including in the exercise was the aircraft carrier INS Vikramaditya and also the then two only Indian nuclear submarines, the SSN Chakra and the SSBN Arihant, the last one concluding her first operational deterrent patrol few months before in November 2018. Both Indian and Pakistani navies must prevail over the other, to show his resolution to control the Arabian Sea and the access to the main Pakistani ports, and to prevent the other side to overcome. Only eluding that unbalanced situation, probably directing towards a nuclear escalade, a major conflict could be avoided. At last on 4 March 2019 the Indian Scorpene-class submarine Kalvari was detected by a Pakistani P-3C Orion some 86 nm of Gwadar, well into the Pakistani Exclusive Economic Zone. But cold heads prevailed and no more shots were fired. This scenario speculates on the situation going hot between the both sides submarine and ASW elements. Even a submarine lost by a hostile action could be covered as a lamentable accident to avoid a further escalade. The sea is perhaps too much wide and open and both side forces scarce, but after an encounter the actions can be short and destructive. Enrique Mas, April 12, 2024.

  6. Testing old scenarios to constate DB editor is going fine, remembers me an old question. In relation to the attached screenshot and the lines "DEBUG Downes FF1070 PointDefense Got'm all" , Downes FF1070 effectively has expended all its ammo firing at the incoming missiles, some have been shot down (or not!) others not and have sunk poor Downes. The questions are: - In the simulation, the Phalanx is shooting down the incoming missiles, or it's only applied its Point Defense Value, a value unknown to me? - The Point Defense Value has any relation with the mount field "Auto", what reads "1" in this concrete case? - If not, the mount field "Auto" is or not implemented on the simulation, and what is its meaning? - The expression "PointDefense Got'm all" what real meaning has, as many missiles have penetrated the Point Defense? - The expression DEBUG, what is related in this case? Perhaps too many question, but many thanks!!!
  7. Tested, both Database remading some magazine entries and tested in some small scenarios. Apparently everything is OK again!
  8. Of interest: https://www.navylookout.com/the-factors-shaping-the-future-royal-navy-surface-fleet/
  9. Yeah, almost everything!!! But many thanks!!!
  10. I'm not sure, do you mean from the next PE iteration it will not arbitrary changes on the scripted magazines from that point?
  11. Usual bussiness, and for years thinking on it! (at least the Biological SS has titanium hull to halve the detection range of MAD!).

    Russian Sub Hunters, March 2024. Historical Scenario. A Harpoon Commander's Edition scenario for EC2003 Battle for the GIUK Gap and the HCDB2-170308 new standard 1980-2025 Platform Database. This scenario is designed with advanced Scenario Editor and to be run with HCE 2015.008+ or later. This scenario is designed to be played from the Red/Russian side or from the Blue/Russian Aggressor side. You should play a few times first the RED side to avoid spoilers, and only later play the BLUE side. Image: Other more peaceful times, the Russian frigate RFS Neustrashimyy (Temporal hull number 712), lead ship of the Project 11540 Yastreb-class, steams through the Baltic Sea during exercises supporting Baltic Operations BALTOPS 2008. Photo of June 11, 2008, by Mass Communication Specialist Second Class Mike Banzhaf, a serviceperson on duty and in consequence on public domain. Took from Wikipedia Commons. After two long years of Russian invasion of Ukraine, Russia tries to keep an image of normality, including pretended normal military exercises, despite its great surface and subsurface loses in the Black sea by Ukrainian USVs (Uncrewed Surface Vessels), substrategic missiles and other minor forces. This simple scenario tries to depict the pretended "big" ASW exercise publicised by Russia March 13, 2024, and its estimated components. It's of interest the use of a Project 636.3/Kilo II-class submarine in the exercise, as isn't any in the Russian Baltic Fleet strength, and she is very probably B-608 Mozhaisk sailing in test, destined to be in service in the Russian Pacific Fleet. The only Russian submarine in regular service in the Baltic Fleet is an old Project 877/Kilo-class, B-806 Dmitrov, commissioned 1986. Also is of interest the comparison between this very simple Russian exercise and any of the iterations of the NATO yearly Dynamic Manta or Dynamic Mongoose ASW exercises, fulls of surface and subsurface forces and with a great variety of hypothetical situations. Of course this is a training exercise and actual shots, torpedoes and missiles aren't fired and nobody is hurt ... but in the alternate timeline we share now everything is possible, and that previous affirmation can be untrue.
