Relieve the clash of Hellenistic armies with modern weapons in this scenario featuring an attack by Seleucid fighters against a Ptolemaic base on Cyprus.

Greetings, commander.

BACKGROUND:

Throughout the wars between the heirs of Seleucus I Nicator and Ptolemy I Soter, Egypt itself has been the Ptolemaic dynasty’s fortress. We stand little chance of breaking its defenses. However, the kingdom’s outpost on Cyprus is another story. That island is both a threat and an opportunity. Ptolemaic units based out of Cyprus have long interfered with Seleucid operations in the eastern Mediterranean, and the time has come to put an end to that.

The goal of this operation is to neutralize the Lagos Airbase at southern Cyprus.

ENEMY FORCES:

The target airbase on Cyprus hosts an undetermined number of (F-14s) Greek fighters and is heavily defended by SAMs and AAA.

FRIENDLY FORCES:

Staging out of Antioch and Tyre are squadrons of Greek fighters (F-14s) and native auxillary craft (F-5s). From Selucia itself, the emperor has released two (Tu-22) strategic bombers for theĀ operation.

MISSION:

Destroy as much of the airbase as you can, and shoot down as many Ptolemaic fighters as possible. The island must be neutralized.

COMMAND AND CONTROL:

Command: Selucia Airbase
EMCON: Unrestricted Emissions.
