New Command scenario: Facing the Dragon

Over the past couple of months, internal struggles in China have seen a shift in the political leadership towards a more conservative, communist direction. This has led to a rising tension concerning Taiwan, with threatening rhetoric increasing in recent weeks.

With the west only just finished with yet another military intervention, this one in Syria, China feels bold enough to make a military gamble, a long awaited but never expected armed conflict with Taiwan.

In recent days the situation has escalated severely, with several armed clashes among ships and also near the Spratley islands. All signs point to China attempting to find an excuse to go to war. The sinking of a Chinese frigate yesterday by Taiwanese vessels returning fire seems to have done it, with China claiming it as unprovoked in the UN security council and demanding measures against Taiwan. The western nations are not buying it and claim to have evidence of Chinese subversion, leaving the UN a divided body.

China was banking on a lack of response due to the UN’s inflexibility and supposed American war weariness, and although the USA’s deployment scope is limited right now, unexpected allies have come to Taiwan’s aid, with Japan, Singapore, Australia and Korea all deploying assets. A hastily assembled Rapid Response Force has quickly deployed to Taiwan and is about to begin assisting the Taiwanese in defensive operations.

China has lost its planned window of surprise, but political pride proves to be too strong to stop events set in motion, and they hope to be able to still overwhelm the assembled force and quickly force the issue.


Scenario Author notes

This scenario is not necessarily intended to be an accurate recreation of what a real Chinese attack would look like. It focuses specifically on an air war only aspect, and intends to see how a clash of  modern generation fighters might play out. In addition you only control 2 of the 4 FAORs in order to keep things somewhat manageable. You will find that the Chinese SAM threat has a reduced reach over the straits, there is no naval element, nor are there hordes of ballistic missiles flying. This is pure air warfare. The all out conflict will have to wait for a future installment. View this as a warmup 🙂

One important instruction, be sure to turn OFF the “Scenario Events” toggle in Game Options -> Message log, or you will get unrealistic SA about events that control the enemy AI.

New Command scenario: SEAL Submarine Exercise

July 15, 2014 · Posted in Command · Comment 

This exercise is intended to test the ability of a submarine to deploy SEALs into a hostile environment.


ATTN: Commanding Officer, USS Madison.


Border clashes between the nations of Suffolkistan and the Kingdom of Nassau have recently increased in intensity. On top of increased mobilizations, the Suffolkistani armed forces have recently accquired heavy rocket launchers, which have lead us to believe that they may be attempting a full-blown assault on the fortified border.

A SEAL raid has been authorized to destroy one of the launchers, located near a command facility in eastern Suffolkistan.

Enemy Forces:

Suffolkistan is aware of the possibility of maritime sabotage, although they expect it to to come from Nassau’s navy. A squadron of Mi-14 anti-submarine helicopters has been deployed to the area, and intel suspects at least one SSK there as well.

Friendly Forces:

Your force consists of the USS Madison, a docked SDV, and its complement of SEALs.


Deploy the SEALs to the Suffolkistan shores with the SDV (OOC: have the SDV remain in the marked area for a minute), and then destroy the launcher.


Weapons free.

NATO vs. Slovakian Rebels
1st June, 2015 / 06:00:00 Zulu
Location: Central Europe

Playable Sides: NATO

This scenario assumes that Slovakian army has rebelled. Although most of the rebels have already surrendered, one of the Slovakian airbases is still being held captive by rebels along with all available equipment and civilian personnel. Rebels are threatening to start executing civilian personnel if their demands aren’t met starting at 1200 Zulu. Slovakian goverment call for help is answered by several NATO members, which agree to provide limited military support to suppress the rebellion.


Orders for Cmdr NATO Air Force


Rebellion of Slovakian army has almost been resolved. One of the airbases still remains under rebel control, along with the equipment. Slovakian government asked us to intervene. Your main objective is to recapture the airbase.

Enemy Forces

Information we received from Slovakian government indicates that the rebels are operating six modernized MIG-29s (Fulcrum-C), one battery of older 2K12 Kub SAM system (SA-6 Gainful) and one battery of more recent S-300 (SA-10 Grumble).

Friendly Forces

  • Six JAS-39C stationed at Caslav AB (note that Czech Gripens are not ground attack capable).
  • Six Mi-35M stationed at Namest Nad Oslavou AB and one C-295M at Caslav AB.
  • Two Tornado ECR stationed at Piacenza San Damiano AB.
  • Two Tornado ECR stationed at Schleswig AB.


Destroy opposing forces and recapture Sliac AB.


Use JAS-39C Gripens to maintain air-superiority in the area of operation. Neutralization of enemy SAM defences has to be performed with combination of Tornado ECRs and Mi-35Ms as needed. Transport paratroopers to LZ Alpha in vicinity of enemy airbase using C-295 (3min to airdrop). Maintain presence in the vicinity of enemy airbase (30 min) to recapture it.

New Command scenario: The Grecale Affair

This scenario assumes that tensions have increased between Italy and Tunisia.


A delta template .ini file has been included in the .zip file to assist in updating the scenario to any future versions of the database.



ATTN: Commanding Officer, Grecale


Disagreements with Tunisia over the use of the Strait of Sicily continue.  In particular, Tunisia has made several claims about violations of its territorial waters by Italian fishing boats and other commercial vessels.  They have warned us that further violations may result in the use of force.

Our government believes that a diplomatic solution to this problem will be reached soon, but that in the meantime it is important to maintain a naval presence in the Strait.


In the event that hostilities break out, Tunisia has only limited naval and air capabilities, but these should still be taken seriously.  While the elderly missile boats and F-5E/F Tiger IIs Tunisia uses are obsolete by our standards, they do represent a significant amount of firepower.


The Grecale is the only vessel in the area available for this mission.

Available aircraft at Trapani are chopped to your command.


Proceed to the Strait of Sicily.  Conduct patrols in the area marked on your tactical map and gather intelligence on Tunisian forces in the Strait until you receive further orders.


Do not initiate hostilities with Tunisian forces.  Be careful not to violate Tunisian territorial waters.  If Tunisia initiates hostilities, you are free to defend yourselves and to take appropriate actions to protect civilians from harm.

Good luck.

New Command scenario: Andromeda at the Ready

During the 1980s, both Iran and Iraq attacked commercial shipping in the Persian Gulf in an attempt to deny each other trade.

This scenario assumes the British frigate Andromeda, on station in the Persian Gulf at various times in the 1980s, was called upon to protect a British merchant damaged by an Iranian mine and at risk of further attack by Iranian forces.

*** FLASH *** FLASH *** FLASH ***

ATTN: Commanding Officer, Andromeda


The English-flagged merchant Dover Belle has been damaged by a naval mine, most likely Iranian in origin.  Although damaged, she is still capable of moving under her own power and is now en route to the United Arab Emirates, where she will effect repairs.  Signals intelligence, however, suggests the Iranians believe she is carrying contraband and are intending to seize her or sink her.


The Iranians have a number of small vessels in the Persian Gulf and a small number of aircraft that they can dedicate to tracking and possibly attacking the Dover Belle.


Your forces consist of the Andromeda and the Olmeda.  Ledbury is available to assist you if other mines are discovered that represent a threat to your forces or to merchant shipping.  No other British forces are currently available to assist you.


Protect the Dover Belle from attack while she makes her way to the United Arab Emirates.

Ledbury should patrol the Dover Belle’s intended path to the United Arab Emirates and attempt to locate and eliminate any mines that may threaten her or other shipping.


At your discretion.  You are free to fire on Iranian forces if they appear to directly threaten the Dover Belle or your vessels.

Please be reminded that your Sea Wolf missiles have limited range and your only long range surface combat weapons are your Exocet missiles.  Sailing in very close formation with the Dover Belle will be the only way to provide her with any kind of air cover.

Good luck.  God save the Queen.
