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.
