In 1961 a conflict on lobster fishing in the Pernambuco Brazilian state coast between French fishermen turned out in French Navy sending the destroyer Tartu to the area with the mission of escorting the fishermen; the Brazilian Navy dispatched some ships to repel the French destroyer, later the Brazilian navy apprehended the French vessel Cassiopée off the Brazilian coast on 2 January 1962.

The so called ‘Lobster War’ was taken to International Courts.

This scenario is a ‘What-If’, the conflict turned out into an armed conflict.

To Cmdr Brazilian forces

French navy has sent a carrier group to enforce the exclusion zone around their fishermen, use all available assets to repel this aggression to our territorial waters, if the enemy losses are relevant they will probably leave the area.

There is no civil shipping transiting the area of conflict, all vessels have change their path to avoid it.

Good luck!
