Spain vs. Morocco

Date/Time: 7th January, 2016 / 11:00:00 Zulu

Location: Canary Islands / African Coast

Playable Sides: Spain

In the last years Spain has been constructing oil platforms of extraction in the waters that exist between Canary Islands and Morocco, from a beginning Morocco has expressed his non-conformity since in his understanding these platforms are placed in Exclusive Economical Zone of Morocco.

Spain has another vision and claim that they are placed in the median that separates the coast of Morocco and Canary Islands.

The most radical wing of the army of Morocco convinces his Government to take these platforms by use of the force taking advantage of the presence of air and navy units in the area due to the annual air defense exercise; they are sure that the Spaniards won`t be ready to take them back and face an armed conflict…

The base for a second Green March is laid…

First Green March ocurred in November 1975 resulting in Spain leaving the Occidental Sahara:

New Command scenario: Fighter Weapons School – GAT 5 and 6

September 11, 2013 · Posted in Command · Comment 

by Chris Stoner


Date/Time: 21st July 1977 / 16:00:00 Zulu

Location: Nevada Test and Training Range

Playable Sides: USAF


Established in 1954 and reinvigorated by lessons learned in Vietnam, the USAF Fighter Weapons School is the ultimate proving ground for the Air Force’s best fighter pilots.  In 1977 the curriculum centered around the F-4E Phantom multirole fighter which put students through a comprehensive syllabus of air and ground attack challenges.

The final section was on Ground Attack Tactics and culminated in the GAT 5 & 6 exercises, run simultaneously with one section of aircraft striving for air to ground success and another for air superiority.  Called The World’s Most Demanding Peacetime Mission, GAT 5 & 6 required eight students to attack an assigned target protected by staunch ground and air defenses.  It was the fighter pilot’s graduate thesis and the final obstacle on their path to returning home with the covetted ‘Bullseye Patch’.

Scenario Notes
There are many challenges to overcome in this scenario.  You have 4 Phantoms outfitted for air-to-air and 4 Phantoms fitted out for air-to-ground, including 2 with PGMs.  Against you are SAMs, AAA and a heavy dose of OPFOR F-5E fighters.  There’s no support from GCI, EW or SEAD assets.  Just 8 planes and a mission.  Good luck!

Scoring is simple.  The aircraft revetment targets are worth 15pts and all other OPFOR targets are worth 10pts to the USAF.  Each lost Phantom loses them 20pts.

New Command scenario: COMAO Training, Transport Day

This scenario represents a fictional operation to exfiltrate a SOF team in a medium-to-high threat environment, where all the capabilities of a modern air force have to work together and in a coordinated way to be able to fulfill the mission.

You are going to be in the boots of a senior captain and your responsibility is going to be the coordination of very different aircrafts and weaponry with the goal to the make them work as a fine tuned and oiled war machine.

In this scenario you have the handicap to cope with the protection of a transport… big, slow and lacking of modern offensive ECM this guy is going to be vulnerable not only to the air enemy units but also to the ground ones, but it´s the key to the success of the mission… if the transport is destroyed you have lost no matter of your performance in other areas…

This scenario is routinely played in Flag exercises (Red Flag, Maple Flag and so on) and normally are part of the syllabus of air ops courses as the Weapons School Courses (USAF)  or the Tactical Leadership Program Course (NATO).

New Command Scenario: Choking Halifax

Soviet vs. NATO

Date: April 10th, 1986

Location: Approaches to Halifax, Canada

Playable Sides: Soviet

The Politburó has decided to take preemptive action before NATO can assemble their forces in American and Canadian harbours in preparation to the start of hostilities. Part of the plan involves gaining time through bottling NATO transport assets at their ports.

The gained time must be used to fully deploy the Soviet submarine forces in the north Atlantic to intercept the expected NATO convoys.

Part of those operations are the insertion of small special forces for sabotage and point mining operations at these areas by SSK and other stealth and clandestine units.
