New Command scenario: The Raisa Affair

May 18, 2014 · Posted in Command 

Author: Mark Gellis

This scenario takes place after the Six Day War.  Tensions between Israel and Egypt remain high.  Israel is conducting patrol missions in the eastern Mediterranean in order to prevent any surprise attacks by hostile countries.

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



ATTN: Commanding Officer, Mivtach


The Soviet Union continues to supply Egypt with military equipment.  A Soviet cargo ship is currently en route to Alexandria.  Our government wants to get a closer look at her and what she may be carrying.


Unknown.  The Egyptians are probably operating one or two warships in your area and are probably conducting aerial patrols as well.


Mivtach is the only vessel available to complete this mission.

Available aircraft at Hatzerim are chopped to your command.


Locate the Soviet merchant headed towards Alexandria.  Approach to within 1,000 yards of her, match your course with hers, and observe her until you feel you have gathered sufficient intelligence on her.  Do not fire on her.  Repeat.  Do not fire on her.   

Once you have completed your observations, return to waters controlled by Israel (marked on your tactical map).


Use caution.  Avoid detection is possible.  Avoid confrontation with Egyptian forces if possible.

An American destroyer is in the area and will share intelligence with us.


Command: Mivtach
Signal: Mivtach should maintain EMCON State A (No Emissions) unless doing so places her in jeopardy.  Aircraft based at Hatzerim are free to operate at EMCON State C (Unrestricted Emissions).

Good luck.
