OK. Orders:

 

Qadir continues same course and speed (256@30 knots)

Falaq change course to 270 and maintain speed 30 knots.

Continue for 30 minutes unless get new ESM contacts or helo comes inside 10 nm range of any of the ships.

After 30 minutes, switch on radar on Qadir. Depending on radar contacts, I'll give you new orders.

 

I'm planning a bit ahead, but assuming a squared flying pattern for the helo leads me to the center of the square...

Turn 1059 - Plotting Phase:

 

The ESM cross bearings are within 10 nm of Qadir. It appears there was a course change for the unknown unit.

 

I cleaned up some of the ref points, but left the ones that show the starting location of contact and places where the bearings indicated a course change.

 

You have C-802 range circles.

Turn 1106 - Plotting Phase:

 

At 1103 Qadir watched the ESM contact come to within 2.5 nm of the ship (but outside of gun range). The crew could only see a speck in the air due to haze. It moved off to the South.

 

At 1105.5 Falaq spotted a speck in the sky but was too far for guns. It appears to be the same ESM contact. It is presently moving off to the West.

 

I have given you range circles for detecting Large and Medium surface contacts around Qadir.

 

Do you wish to change any orders?

 

Edit: I had to reload the turn files due to an unsaved change.

Orders:

 

Qadir maintaing course 290 at 30 knots, radar on.

Falaq change course to 270 at 30 knots, radar off.

 

Maintain until radar contact detected or ESM contact again closes distance to us. Anyway, will reevaluate for new orders in 30 minutes.

 

Thanks for range circles for weapons and detection. You are ahead of my requests... BTW, are you using Harpoon 4 original radar ranges or modified ranges per "Smartes radars for Harpoon" rules?

Next to a military radar, must be an enemy... :) Classify this contact as hostile.

 

Orders:

Qadir, new course 225 at 30 knots

Falak, new course 235 at 30 knots

 

Continue for 30 minutes or until get an ESM cross-bearing for contact with radar 1007.

 

Question about missiles (I have my rules a bit rusty): Guidance I/TARH (the Inertial part) means that I don't need a radar return to launch? Could I launch with only an ESM cross-bearing?

Turn 1148 - Plotting Phase:

 

You have an ESM cross bearing on Radar 1007.

 

The I/TARH missile needs a bearing for launch and a distance at which the seeker will turn on. You can launch it without any information at all. But, you won't hit anything unless you know where the missile should go to start looking on its own.

New orders:

 

Qadir, new course 230 at 30 knots

Falaq, maintain course 235 at 30 knots

 

Continue for 30 minutes unless contact Radar 1007 comes closer than Intl Radar, or Helo contact comes inside gun range.

OK, I'll make my attack and run.

 

Qadir:

Course 230 at 30 knots for 2 TTurns (6 min)

Fire all four C802 on bearing 238, activate seeker after 10 nm

After firing, turn to 315 at max speed 34 knots, switch radar on

 

Falaq:

Course 235 at 30 knots for 2 TTurns (6 min)

Fire all four C80s on bearing 293, activate seeker after 10 nm

After firing, turn to 190 at max speed 34 knots, switch radar on

 

I'm not sure, but I suppose cannon can be Radar controlled. But my Type 756 radar is listed as SS only. Can it engage air targets?

 

Anyway, then see what happens :)

Turn 1215 - Planned Fire Phase: Both Houdongs fire all their C802s, which are at VLow altitude upon launch.

 

Turn 1215 - Detection Phase: Halifax picks up unknown air targets at the exact location of the Houdongs. They are classified as hostile.

 

Turn 1215 - Reaction Fire Phase: Halifax launches 2x RIM-7M SAMs (one at each group).

 

*Switch to Engagement Turns*

 

Turn 1218.0 - First Movement Phase: The SAMs reach their targets and destroy 1x C802 in each group. Because the STIR directors engaged the targets this turn, they are busy for the entire turn.

 

Turn 1218.5 - Second Movement Phase: Two more SAMs fired in the First Fire Phase reach and destroy 2 more C802s.

 

Turn 1219.0 - First Fire Phase: Halifax takes out 1 C802 with the Phalanx.

 

Turn 1219.0 - Second Air Attack Resolution: The remaining C802s hit their targets (one on Halifax and two on the tanker).

Halifax - 33 damage points, no critical hits, and no speed loss.

Tanker - 66 damage points, 3 critical hits (engineering, minor flooding, bridge), new max speed 10 kts.

 

Tomorrow - the response!
