  1. Interesting scenario. I am not a big submarine fan, myself. I proceeded just like Donald with massive airstrikes which killed the air bases and the surface group rather easily. I lost a bunch of submarines, getting ambushed by an Akula which sank 4 conventional subs early on. Two further subs were killed (probably) by ASW aircraft, probably a lucky streak for the enemy (MAD contacts?). In all, I felt that detecting enemy subs was rather more difficult than what I'm familiar with. It took my subs quite some time to pick up the enemy units, sometimes the only thing notice were inbound torpedoes, although I kept speed low at 5 knots all the way to the bastion.
  2. Ok, this was fun! Second run was better, the big enemy surface group was a bit further off. Sadly, it spawned in the vicinity of my smaller surface group, enveloping it with its SAMs, thus making it impossible to safeguard the smaller surface group from missile attack. The few aircraft in Cyprus were also not able to stop air attacks against the islands installations and I could not get my carrier aircraft over the island in time, since I had to manuever around the SAM envelope of the big enemy surface group. RED thus managed to pull of a minimum victory after annihilating my smaller surface group, sinking 3 of my ships. I did not give up and launched an all-out counterstrike. Repeated air strikes killed the enemy surface group and then one by one the enemy bases and supporting units died. Total victory was inevitable.
  3. Thank you! Got it! My first run of the game was rather unpleasant. The enemy surface group spawned immediately next to my carrier group leading to an immediate missile exchange.
  4. AAR: WARNING, possible spoilers... I lost two Atlantiques in the ASuW role which got into Aster-range probably and one frigate which got killed by a torpedo fired by an undetected submarine. As long as the E2 and E3 keep their radars on, there is no need to turn the radars of the carrier group on and reveal your positions. The Rafales could easily intercept inbound aircraft and I shot down about 30 of them. Another 12 or so were killed in the air bases, which I repeatedly attacked with Scalps and Tomahawks from aircraft and ships. I managed to torpedo most of the enemy surface group with Amethyste, which prompted min. victory conditions after around 8 hours of gameplay. Thank you!
  5. Nice! I need to add Victory Conditions, yes. I think I used the wrong save.

    Following the devastating Sigma variant wave in late 2022, the world started recovering again in 2023. The skirmish along the Russian-Ukrainian border in early 2022 served as reminder that the pandemic was not the only concern. The European Union, exiting the pandemic more divided than ever before, was too weak to keep its cohesion, losing Finland and Sweden in 2023 and Romania in 2024. Norway, Sweden and Finland formed the Northern Block in late 2022, while Romania aligned itself with the Russian-friendly Ukrainian government. Following the Vaccine Shortage Unrest of Warsaw, a state of civil war erupted in Poland. The EU tried to intervene but was warned Russia than any intervention so close to its borders would be met with a Russian response. When evidence surfaced that it was the FSB that sabotaged the two truckloads of vaccines destined for the Warsaw population, it was already too late. The United States of America, their hands full trying to put down the civil unrest in Mexico and preventing it from spilling over the border, were too busy looking elsewhere. The newly formed Russian-Chinese Alliance grasped its chance. Scenario 1 of the WWIII series To be played only from the BLUE side

  8. I tried playing this, but it keeps crashing about 10 min into game time. Not sure why...
  9. There is no reason to turn of radars on your surface groups. You have two dozens of AEW aircraft to spot everything. Chinese air attacks can be stopped rather close to the Chinese coastline. I guessed there was going to be a major effort and I launched around 80 aircraft with AAW loadout in the opening minutes all on CAP outside the Chinese coastline. I managed to barely stay outside their SAM range. Mostly groups of 6-8 aircraft. The amount of Chinese drones was quite the surprise for me.
  10. SPOILER ALERT Indeed, my surface groups did not attract any attention from Chinese bombers. I think, I mostly shot down fighters and only a small group of Chinese Badgers that were not vectoring towards my ships, but rather Naha?
  11. Thank you for this scenario. Quite interesting! I finished it playing blue. SPOILER ALERT I expected a bit more aggression from the Chinese. No surface strikes materialized against my fleets. I was anxious that they might try to shoot ballistic missiles against Naha and Kadena, but that also did not occur. I managed to shoot down over 200 aircraft and killed all their fleets, achieving total victory. The F2A is a great asset with its long range ASMs and the Guam based bombers were also very handy. One needs to reposition assets from the bases in Northern Japan to the South in the beginning to achieve a swift victory, but Blue is certainly privileged having so many fighters with long range AAMs operational. I lost close to 20 fighters mostly due to errors from on side, there is a very slight chance of missing any Chinese fighters with all the AEW assets at your disposal.
  12. It's all quite confusing. The Russian figures are clearly overblown (seems they are trying to market the Pantsyr!). And I fully agree that only a few targets were mentioned and clearly way too many missiles per target were allocated. So yes, the West probably knew about the defenses. What also is kind of confusing for me is why such a different variety of weapons were used per target. It surely didn't make coordination of the strikes easier.
  13. Interesting statements concerning how many missiles / bombs were shot down. So what figures would you view as credible?
  14. Thank you! I was not certain what database I used to build this on. I will add that info on the download page ASAP.
  15. Enjoy and please post comments or an AAR!

    This is the sixth and final part of the series. As with all previous scenarios: Only to be played by the BLUE side. PRELUDE: The sudden deployment of nuclear weapons by the Israeli Defence Force came as a surprise to all involved conflict parties. Faced with annihilation after the collapse of the front along the Gaza strip and the breakthrough achieved by US-backed Egyptian Army units, the Israelis resorted to the last possible measure available to them. The ensuing nuclear storm engulfed US forces in Egypt as well and led to a limited US nuclear strike on Israeli units by B2 bombers. The last shot in that side-conflict fell, when the “Tanin”, a Dolphin class Israeli submarine, unleashed a nuclear-tipped cruise missile strike on the Diego Garcia installation, where the B2 bomber strike originated from. Following that strike, both the Israelis and the US-Egyptian coalition decided to disengage. ECON quickly distanced itself from the Israeli actions, just as Greater Russia did. Turkey decided to stay neutral again, following the defeat of its air force over the Aegean by ECON forces and being effectively isolated after Egypt left the conflict. The war was approaching a stalemate between the two pacts. It was Vladimir Putin who surprised ECON leadership with an ambitious plan to carry the fight to the enemy and potentially accelerate the end of the war.

  18. Indeed, the Zumwalt's only potential lies in its stealthy profile. However if the rail gun ever gets operational it could become a real game changer in this field too. Imagine a Zmwalt sneaking up on an enemy surface group and unleashing a barrage with its rail guns...
