    Questo è il primo scenario del battleset incentrato nel Mediterraneo, ma collegato a Northern Fury. cronologicamente esso inizia (12:15 Zulu) 45 minuti prima del primo scenario di Northern Fury (13.00 Zulu). Quindi avrei dovuto giocarlo prima, ma non era ancora pronto, perciò lo faccio ora.
    Il ritmo non sarà intenso, in quanto la partita a WitP contro Linus mi porta via quasi tutto il mio tempo libero. Cercherò di portarmi avanti di tanto in tanto, giusto per non dimenticare quello che sto facendo.
    Questa volta ho da condurre le forze russe in Turchia. A seguire il briefing (in inglese, sorry non ho voglia di tradurlo).

    Ecco l'introduzione del Battleset del Mediterraneo, creato dal mitico Bar.

    Mediterranean Fury 1: The Road to Byzantium.

    13 Feb 1994, 1215 Zulu, 1415 Local

    The opening day of World War Three; this is a companion to the Northern Fury series and the Northern Fury background document will give you much of the detailed history.

    You are the Commander of the South Wester Direction HQ in Vinnitsa in Central Ukraine. You report directly to the Soviet High Command in Moscow and you have many responsibilities; however, today in the opening moments of the war you have one focus – Turkey.

    You’ve been aware of the upcoming campaign for some weeks now, and your key staff for the past month, but your subordinate commanders have only had a week to prepare and the formations involved were only notified in the past days. Division commanders were told yesterday and soldiers were being rounded up even now, minutes before the fighting begins.

    Your deputy is now at Yalta taking personal charge of the operation, you need to be in Moscow tonight to brief the President. His job, if not his life, depends on seizing the Bosporus in the next 48 hours, then reinforced by mechanized forces from the 32nd Army Corps (Crimea Corps), supported by the 24th Air Army and the Black Sea Fleet – the Dardanelles within the week.

    There are many supporting activities which will be exposed as required, but rest assured – you are not alone in this fight. Even now the wheels are in motion to help you achieve what many have tried and failed in the past.

    Take your hammer and bang on the door – the Russians are coming!

    Catherine the Great’s longest serving consort, Prince Potemkin, after securing control of the Crimea in the 1780’s erected an arch over the highway leading to the Balkans with the inscription: “This is the road to Byzantium,” provocatively reminding the empress of the enduring Russian ambition to control access to the Black Sea and be the successor to the Eastern Roman Empire. Once again Russia is using the Crimea as a springboard to seize the Bosporus and Dardanelles – once more the road is traveled.


    Designer’s Notes:

    This is the 1st scenario of a campaign, probably of about a dozen scenarios total. See the Northern Fury background document for further insight on the background and happenings so far. The key nuggets

    • Cold War continued, no thaw in relations. WP still alive and doing very well.

    • The 3rd World war starts at 1300hrs Zulu, 13 Feb. The Warsaw Pact forces led by the Soviet Union will attack NATO and other nations on a global scale. The main blow will be in Western Europe but fighting erupted in the Pacific, Caribbean, Middle East and North Africa.

    • Points are allotted or deducted for losses, achieving special missions and completing objectives.

    • Some units – especially Bulgarian are not yet ready for war and will take some hours to prepare. Please respect the ready times.

    • The Spetsnaz forces are not under your control and are not meant to move or attack. Their stealth is their weapon and you will appreciate their information in later parts of the scenario.

    • Gölcük Naval Base should be near Izmit Turkey but it’s been moved about 38 miles west to account for some issues with ships departing the base and getting hung up.

    • Ships/subs transiting the restricted waters of the Bosporus straits will travel anywhere within the yellow designated lines, tending towards the outside. Consider this when plotting minefields.

    Ed ecco il lungo briefing. Mi porta già via abbastanza tempo per leggerlo, perciò non me ne rimane per lanciare lo scenario. Alla prossima!

    WARSAW PACT SIZE BRIEFING


    Reviewing the notes of a discussion with your deputy, Colonel General Konstantin Morizevich Golubev this morning, you try and decide if there is anything you’ve missed.

    The Enemy: Primarily the Turks but also the Greeks, that in itself is an interesting opportunity. NATO will respond but not likely within the first 12-18 hours, and even then it will probably be with in place forces and focused on showing solidarity. Our real goal is to knock Turkey out of the Alliance entirely and there are several ways we are working that issue. But militarily they are not a pushover:

    · Turkish Navy: Suffering from American paranoia the Turks have struggled to keep their fleet up to date. A collection of very old ships with only four new ships, the Yavuz class Frigates, and 16 decent Fast Attack Craft (FAC). The real strength in the navy are the six new German Type 209-1200 submarines. On the surface our Black Sea Fleet should be able to fend them off easily, under the sea however only our Project 636 boats (Kilo) can compete.

    · Turkish Air Force: Quite numerous but the only real threat are their F-16s. Unfortunately, Turkey manufactures their own so the cutback in American exports hasn’t affected them and they have about 130 airframes. Besides that, all other aircraft are old, F-4 and F-5 being the next most capable. Some of the numbers will be drawn off towards Syria, which will be assisting us in this effort, but over 100 F-16s are based at Bandirma, Belikesir and their main training base at Murted, all within an easy reach of the Bosporus. We must degrade these numbers if we hope to succeed.

    · Turkish Army: Although quite large and capable, its equipment is dated and tactics are less ambitious than other NATO countries due to the quality of their conscript soldiers. Although the Bulgarians only discovered their part in the operation this morning, one of their Divisions is fully prepared to execute an immediate attack into Thrace (followed by the rest of their Army) which should tie down much of the First Turkish Army. the remainder is geographically dispersed leaving us to deal only with the Second Army, really only a collection of Brigades. We expect that we’ll face the following:

    o 21st Coastal Defense Brigade, east of the straits. Mostly immobile known emplacements of light infantry and old fortifications.

    o 22nd Coastal Defense Brigade, west of the straits, the same as the 21st but more disbursed.

    o 39th Infantry Brigade, west of the straits protecting the approaches to Istanbul. Light infantry and older artillery.

    o 16th Mechanized Brigade, east of the straits. A potent and well positioned force, will likely be the first force to counter attack our landings. Equipped with Adnan AIFV (Armored Infantry Fighting Vehicles).

    o 5th Armored Brigade, in the Izmit/Adapazari area positioned to move either west to counter a move on the Bosporus or south-west against a threat to the Dardanelles.

    o The 20th Mech, 70th Inf and 23rd Coastal Defense Brigades are in the area of the Dardanelles and not likely to intervene in the first 48 hours.

    · The Greeks: It’s unlikely that the Greeks will come to the direct aid of the Turks in the first few hours, but it is not in their interest for the Turks to collapse either. If Ankara withdraws from NATO, Athens will soon follow, along with domestic and political upheaval – which will work in our favor. Their Army is focused on defense towards Bulgaria, and we won’t be pushing on that front initially, a minor thrust should keep them tied down. Also their Navy won’t be a factor until we break out into the Mediterranean and by then the situation will have changed dramatically. Their air force on the other hand is an issue. They’ll be augmenting the fight with about 30 F-16s, an equal number of Mirage 2000 and a large number of older types. On their own they should be easy to handle but combined with the Turks their numbers could sway the balance.

    · The Americans: Are focused on the Med, which is good for the overall plan but not for us; to our benefit they are not well positioned. The USS Eisenhower and escorts are in the western Med at the moment, working with the French and not a real problem. There is a fighter wing and other assets at Aviano Italy but the threat from the Balkans will keep them busy – tomorrow’s task. The one new factor is that one of their vaunted ‘Aggressor’ Squadrons is visiting Incirlik, the 527th based in the UK; we’ll have to get the Syrians to keep them busy but it’s best not to head too far that way. The Americans are likely to show their hand but probably only symbolically, it will take them a few days before they can really intervene.

    · The Rest of NATO: Currently quite strong in the Mediterranean but disbursed. We have two major naval forces, one in Syria and the other in Libya which, combined with those countries involvement should keep NATO tied down for a week or so at least.

    Your Forces: We are reasonably robust, not nearly so lavishly provided for as the Northern or Central Front but Moscow’s new stratagem of reinforcing the flanks has helped immensely.

    · Political Forces: Have been busy, the work with Syria, Libya, Serbia and others in the region is vital but the centerpiece is unfolding in Ankara at this moment. We’ve exercised some interesting options (See Special Action notes at the bottom of this brief) which may be enough to tip the balance of history – If the Coup succeeds we may be able to achieve victory without much of a fight!

    · Special Purpose Forces: Much of the 22nd Brigade of Spetsnaz, augmented by the 102nd Underwater Force has been deployed for the past week or so and are well infiltrated into Turkish infrastructure. Many will not be in contact until later but there should be good observation of all major bases. Regrettably the team at Incirlik was compromised yesterday so we cannot count on information from there.

    · Naval Forces: With the exception of the forces in the Mediterranean, every serviceable ship in the Black Sea Fleet (BSF) is at sea and has been for the past three days under the cover of a major exercise. Although mostly ignored by NATO, the exercise focused on an amphibious operation so that the 810th Naval Infantry (NI) Brigade is already embarked. The fleet is assembled as follows:

    o Intelligence Gathering Forces: Three SSV ships, a submarine in the Aegean and patrol aircraft are available to gain a good picture of enemy activity.

    o Mine Forces: Two Project 636 boats (Kilo) submarines equipped for mine laying are ready to block either end of the Bosporus. Air delivered mines are available and should it be needed; a small minesweeping force is proceeding south. It is better to block the straits than risk a NATO counter attack should we falter.

    o Covering forces: Submarines, patrol aircraft and a small missile boat group to intervene should NATO come for a look.

    o Main Surface Force: Centered on the newest ship in the BSF, the Admiral Gorshkov, a Project 1164 (Slava) class which was almost cancelled two years ago. This is our strike force to fend off any NATO interference from the Aegean.

    o Screening Force: Fast missile and torpedo boats sweeping the area in advance of the amphibious elements.

    o Escorting Force: In the unlikely event that the Turks or NATO attempts to strike at the amphibious elements this is the force that will intercede, particularly with ASW and anti-air capability but if those Turkish FACs get lose they have the capacity to deal with them as well. They will also be useful for gunfire support of the landing forces.

    o Amphibious Forces: 810th NI Bde is embarked with three fast (40+ Knt) elements carrying the beaching forces, they moved to Romania last night and have an oiler in support, and three main forces carrying their heavy equipment including T-62 tanks. A follow up force is carrying logistics, the remainder of the heavy equipment and engineering elements. The 881st Air-Assault Battalion is ready at Kacha along with our ekranoplan elements for cargo and fast strike.

    o Coastal Defense Forces: Should the Turks get adventurous we have our fixed Coastal Defense Missile units available.

    · Air Forces: 24th Air Army has coordinating authority for significant air forces. A Regiment of Air Tankers from 5th Air Army is also supporting from Vesele. One detractor is that we have not been allocated any AWACS aircraft, they are all tied up elsewhere, so old fashioned ground control is in order.

    o Naval Aviation: The 2nd Guards Missile Aviation Division with its three bomber regiments (5th Guards at Vesele, 124th at Gvardeskoye and 943rd at Oktiabrske) has taken the 30th Maritime Reconnaissance Regiment under its wing for this operation. What they have in numbers is countered by a shortage of missiles! Most of the modern missiles have gone to the Northern Fleet, and the remaining Anti-Ship missiles are being reserved for attacking NATO forces in the Mediterranean in a few days. There are some Anti-Radiation missiles available but only 20 land attack missiles. The 318th ASW Regiment at Donuzlav is providing maritime patrol and the 917th Transport Regiment is ready to para-drop the 881st Battalion at Kacha.

    o Air Defense Forces: In addition to the fixed and mobile Air Defense Missile units, the PVO is begrudgingly providing two air regiments. The MiG-25s at Zaporoshye may be useful but the Su-15s at Belbek are better off in a museum than fighting a modern force.

    o Frontal Aviation: 24th Air Army has subordinated the 119th Fighter Aviation Division (Reinforced) to the operation (642 Gds Fighter Regiment (MiG-29), 730th Bomber Regiment (Su-17) and 827th Reconnaissance Regiment (Su-17) at Gvardeyskoye, with 841st Gds Fighter Regiment (MiG-23MLD) at Kirovsk). Additionally, from 5th Air Army is the 224th Fighter/Bomber Regiment (Mig-27) at Odessa, the 743rd Fighter Regiment (MiG-23ML) ready to move from Krasnodar Krai to Romania, and a Squadron of Su-24 from the 277th Regiment temporarily at Zaporoshye.

    o Strategic Air Forces: 6th Guards Transport Aviation Division is controlling six Regiments of transports and some electronic aircraft. They are able to lift the 7th Guards Airborne Division and the 38th Air Landing Brigade – but they are vital to the overall effort so losses are unacceptable.

    · Land Forces: 32nd Army Corps (Crimea) is responsible for the landing and subsequent reinforcement of the beachhead. The assault forces for this operation were alerted four days ago and are well prepared; the following assets are available:

    o 810th NI Brigade at sea, except the Air-Assault Battalion at Kacha;

    o Two air portable Anti-Tank Battalions from 55th Artillery Division, also at Kacha attached to 810th NI Brigade;

    o 38th Air Landing Brigade at Odessa;

    o 7th Guards Airborne Division deployed as follows:

    § 51st Guards Parachute Regiment at Voronezh;

    § 119th Guards Parachute Regiment at Buturlinovka;

    § 331st Guards Parachute Regiment at Borisoglebskh;

    § 1082nd Guards Artillery Regiment at Lipetsk; and

    § Divisional HQ and troops at Morshansk.

    o Follow on forces (not in scenario) are the bulk of 32nd Army Corps forces, the 126th and 157th Motor Rifle Divisions (MRD) with the 28th Guards MRD attached and loading on ships ready to sail tomorrow.

    o 14th Combined Arms Army (not in scenario) with three MRD and one Tank Division (TD) is moving by rail to Bulgaria where it will reinforce the drive to link up with the assault forces.

    o 55th Artillery Division (not in scenario) will support both formations.

    · Romanian Forces: Will be focusing westward to assist with the upcoming operations in the Former Yugoslavia, but their air force is providing its regiment of MiG-29s to support as part of the ‘strings attached’ clause of that deal. Also their new frigate, the Marasesti will support the amphibious operation.

    · Bulgarian Forces: Certain elements of their forces were better informed than the government, the 7th MRD for instance was informed through advisory channels to prepare, and they departed their barracks this morning. They will launch a coordinated surprise attack later this afternoon. The government is balking somewhat but the military is starting to respond and they will have sufficient forces available to defend themselves from the Greeks who will undoubtable try and pressure them. Like their Romanian brothers, the MiG-29 Regiment at Ravnets will respond well with its Soviet advisors at least.

    Mission: Quite simply you are to seize the straits of the Bosporus within the next 48 hours.

    Execution: In priority you should accomplish the following:

    1. Gain air superiority over the Bosporus with a combination of offensive air sweeps and closing key Turkish bases.

    2. Sweep the Turkish Navy from the Black Sea and the Sea of Marmara. This probably includes striking at key naval bases. Mining of both ends of the Bosporus will help keep reaction forces tied up.

    3. Prepare the landing areas by destroying and/or interdicting Turkish ground forces.

    4. Conduct the air and amphibious landings. It is completely up to you how forces are allocated but there are three key zones: East Headlands, West Headlands, and South Passage.

    5. Defend the beachhead from all counter attacks.


    Coordination: Timing is key.

    · The war will commence at 1300hrs Zulu (45 minutes from game start) and based on the geography we will not be able to get all forces into ideal placement by then. You must not start hostilities earlier than 1300 but you may be able to delay by a few minutes before the Turks start reacting to any warnings.

    · Our Political forces are manipulating the start of a Coup on the Turkish Government which should manifest about 1230 Zulu. As a minimum this will cause confusion in their reaction.

    · Special Purpose forces are operating throughout Turkey, they have several missions, primarily reconnaissance, but you can adjust their priorities – See Special Actions below.

    Logistics:

    · Limited missile stocks, not only the large missiles for the bombers but also the most advanced missiles for our fighters are in short supply.

    · Some munitions have been prepositioned at Mihail Kogălniceanu Romania for the 743rd Fighter Regiment at Krasnodar Krai.

    · About 300 sea mines are available for the bombers to drop to reinforce the blockade of the Bosporus. No more are obtainable for this front.

    · A squadron of Ekranoplan A-90s have been rushed into service. Currently they are only rated for cargo and not troops. Once there is sufficient security in the landing area a Ekranoplan base has been selected. Transport the A-90s there to unload supplies.


    Special Actions!

    Random Event Options: There will be random actions occurring in the background every few hours. These are largely perpetrated by your Spetsnaz and political forces causing problems within Turkey. Although the chance of something happening is relatively low – you can increase the chances by expending victory points through one of three Special Actions (Event Option 1, 2 or 3). You must make this choice within the first 5 minutes of game time of the options are no longer available.

    Special Purpose Force Options: Your operatives have been putting pressure on Turkey for some months and the impact of these activities could be significant. As the Front Commander you would have some influence on these activities but no control over them. You have an option to choose one of four focus areas for these endeavors, there is no cost but the options will disappear in first 5 minutes of game time.

    · Focus on political division between Greece and Turkey

    · Focus on subverting the Turkish submarine force

    · Focus on sewing doubt and confusion within the Turkish Army

    · Focus on subverting the Turkish Air Force


    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Spoilers below

    Spoilers:

    The random events will have a chance of happening every six hours

    · Base chance: 25%

    · Slight increase: 35% costing 100 VP

    · Marginal increase: 45% costing 400 VP

    · Great increase: 60% costing 1000VP

    The political events will have some significant impact on an element within the Turkish military or on how some of the military act towards the Greeks, depending on how you chose.

    Andiamo quindi ad iniziare questo scenario.

    Le unità da controllare sono davvero tante. Mi ci vorrà un po’ per orientarmi. Poiché il compito primario, inizialmente, è di conquistare la superiorità aerea, inizio con il far decollare diversi caccia, alcuni grossi Tu-16 Badger da ricognizione (alcuni dei quali armati di missili antiradiazione) e un paio di bombardieri in stand-by.
    Poi preparerò i miei caccia da mandare nei cieli turchi per acquisire la superiorità aerea. La guerra scatterà alle 13.00 Zulu, perciò ho un po’ di tempo per prepararmi al meglio per quell’ora, ma non si sa mai che le cose vadano storte già da prima. Meglio farsi trovare pronti.

    Intanto inizio a caricare i miei aerei da trasporto che dovranno portare in Turchia la 7. Divisione aerotrasportata delle Guardie dalla zona di Voronezh, la 38. Brigata da Odessa e la 810. Brigata di fanteria di marina da Kacha, in Crimea. Operazioni non da poco, perché occorre selezionare per ogni aereo i reparti da caricare (siano essi di truppe o di mezzi)

    MF 01 - Loading.JPG
    Nella foto un Il-76M Candid viene caricato con pezzi di artiglieria e alcune unità specifiche di fanteria. Ogni selezione occupa uno spazio ben definito a bordo degli aerei, perciò occorre selezionarle con un certo criterio.


    Non tutte le truppe e i mezzi ci stanno a bordo in occasione del primo viaggio, perciò ne sarà necessario almeno un secondo.

    Ecco uno screen della situazione attuale nel Mar Nero. Le ostilità non sono ancora scoppiate, eppure c’è già una bella confusione.

    MF 01 - Black Sea.JPG

    In basso a sinistra, ancora in arancione, si possono notare le posizioni difensive turche sul Bosforto. Le unità in azzurro presenti sono Spetsnaz infiltrate oltre le linee nemiche. Non sono sotto il mio controllo. Spero che riescano a portare a termine i compiti di sabotaggio loro assegnati.

    Lo scenario avanza, abbastanza lentamente. Un po' perché ho poco tempo libero e un po' perché i mezzi da preparare sono davvero tanti.

    Quando manca mezz'ora allo scoppio delle ostilità (12.30 Zulu), arriva un messaggio di scontri che sono in corso nella capitale turca Ankara.
    Ricevo inoltre la conferma che, nel corso delle ultime settimane, sono state intraprese varie vie al fine di abbattere il morale dei piloti dell'aviazione turca, tra cui minacce ai piloti stessi ed alle loro famiglie, ovviamente portate da agenti infiltrati e non riconducibili alla Russia. Pare che tra il 40% dei piloti, il morale sia decisamente basso.

    Inoltre vengono portate avanti delle operazioni che hanno lo scopo di acuire la tensione ed il dissenso tra Grecia e Turchia, al fine di spaccare la coesione delle forze della NATO.

    Quando mancano 10 minuti alle 13.00 Zulu, il mio sottomarino classe Kilo appostato a sud dell'entrata del Bosforo viene rilevato da un ricognitore nemico, che lancia delle boe sonar. Meglio affrettarsi verso l'imbocco per rilasciare le mine antinave. Stessa cosa ordino di fare al Kilo appostato all'entrata nord del canale.

    Ormai mancano pochi minuti allo scoppio delle ostilità. I miei caccia si sono alzati in volo e si stanno preparando ad attaccare l'aviazione turca, in modo da liberare la strada per le forze d'invasione.

    Dal prossimo post si fa sul serio.

    in questo scenario la crimea viene considerata russa o ucraina? ossia, hai accesso a quelle basi o devi partire da più lontano?

    Se lo scenario è patto di varsavia vs nato potrebbe partire non solo dalla Crimea ma anche dalla Romania o dalla Bulgaria imho.. No?
    @GeorgePatton il mega scenario mi intriga non poco.. La curva di apprendimento del gioco com'è?
    Nel senso, quante ore prima di riuscirci a giocare decentemente? :)

    Dipende. Per chi, come me, proveniva da ore ed ore giocate ad Harpoon (il precursore di CMANO); l’idea su come procedere era già piuttosto chiara. Stesso sistema, interfaccia simile. Poi, certo, CMANO è decisamente più completo e complesso.
    Chi è a digiuno di giochi del genere farà molta più fatica. C'è però il vantaggio che si può mettere in pausa il gioco quando si vuole. Esistono dozzine di scenari, dai più semplici ai più complessi e diversi tutorial. In, rete, poi, trovi un bel po' di video esplicativi.
    Basilare, secondo me, è conoscere un po' la guerra moderna (dagli anni ‘60 in avanti) per riconoscere i vari mezzi e le varie armi impiegate.

    Per quel che concerne la Crimea non ho fatto caso se venga specificato se essa faccia parte di Russia od Ucraina. Ma è ininfluente, esistendo la contrapposizione dei due blocchi est/ovest.

    Non sono andato avanti molto con le scenario, anche perché è molto complesso e quindi bisogna procedere lentamente.
    In ogni caso siamo giunti all'ora H + 13 minuti, ovvero le ore 13.13 Zulu (Locali 15:13).
    Ancora non è stato sparato un colpo. Nonostante in Norvegia la guerra sia già scoppiata, qui è ancora tutto tranquillo. I turchi stanno facendo alzare in volo alcuni F-16, mentre io ho il tempo di far decollare ed avvicinare sempre più aerei. Anche dalla vicina Bulgaria posso iniziare a far alzare diversi velivoli, in modo da poter attaccare sui fianchi le difese turche.
    La calma non durerà per molto.

    Salve a tutti i giocatori di CMANO sul forum.
    Questo scenario in particolare non l'ho giocato ma ho dato una mano su parecchi scenari della serie "Northern Fury".
    L'ultimo scenario del Mediterraneo è ambientato sull'Adriatico e coinvolge l'intera aeronautica italiana.

    Ore 13.14 Zulu – All’improvviso tutto cambia. Gli aerei turchi accendono i loro radar e iniziano a tracciare i miei aerei. Non posso attendere che siano loro a fare fuoco per primi, per evitare perdite stupide.

    I primi missili AA vengono lanciati dai miei MiG-29.

    Mentre sono in volo ricevo questo aggiornamento:


    Massive antigovernment protests are erupting in Istanbul, Izmir, Bursa and several other major centers. Our operatives are in place to ensure video and photos of violence will be leaked to the western press.


    Quattro Fulcrum se la devono vedere con 4 Falcon. Ne nasce una mischia molto interessante, con missili che volano in ogni direzione. Tutti mancano i rispettivi bersagli. Al terzo tentativo un F-16 viene abbattuto. Dopo alcuni minuti di intensi scontri, tutti e 4 gli F-16 turchi (oltre ad un F-5 sopraggiunto in aiuto) vengono abbattuti, senza nessuna perdita. Ma mi ci sono voluti praticamente tutti i missili aria-aria in dotazione: ben 21 missili!

    Mentre si svolge questo primo scontro aereo, noto che sono in volo dei missili antinave, diretti contro la piccola corvetta sovietica classe Poti, in navigazione al largo della Bulgaria. Per la piccola unità, non dotata di sistemi SAM, la situazione la vedo davvero brutta.

    Passano pochi secondi ed anche il 295. Battaglione di motovedette missilistiche, in navigazione a circa 80 miglia dalla costa settentrionale della Turchia, rileva missi in arrivo, probabilmente lanciati da unità di superficie turche, a loro volta in navigazione ad una ventina di miglia dalla costa.

    In tutta risposta lancio un paio di SSN-22 Sunburn contro le navi nemiche. Come SAM per la difesa delle 6 classe Tarantul III che compongono il 295. Battaglione, dispongo complessivamente di 96 3M32M (SA-N-5 Grail), che, però, hanno una gittata di sole 2 miglia.

    I due missili (identificati come Harpoon) diretti contro la FFL classe Poti, la Bezstrashni, non ottengono alcun successo. Il primo manca il bersaglio e cade in mare piuttosto distante, mentre il secondo viene confuso dai Chaff.

    Anche i missili diretti contro il 295. Battaglione motovedette sono degli Harpoon. Tre di essi vengono abbattuti o sedotti dai chaff, ma uno colpisce ed affonda la R 60. Non riesco a capire come mai la schermata del battaglione delle motovedette mi indichi come disponibilil i SAM Grail, ma poi, quando devono difendersi, tra le varie opzioni che ho a disposizione, essi non figurino. Mah.

    I miei SS-N-22, invece, fanno centro. O, per lo meno, uno di loro, visto che l’altro ha un malfunzionamento e cade in mare. Il secondo colpisce ed affonda la nave turca che aveva lanciato contro il 295. Battaglione. Si tratta non di una fregata, bensì del cacciatorpediniere Kilic Ali Pasa, della classe FRAM I.

    Alle 13.24 la corvetta classe Riga, SKR-12 Smeli, in navigazione solitaria nelle retrovie, viene colpita da 2 Harpoon. Non affonda subito, ma il suo destino è segnato.

    Ore 13.27Z – Dall’incrociatore Admiral Gorshkov (classe Slava), lancio 2 missili antinave SS-N-12 sandbox, contro la fregata turca colpevole dell’attacco contro le corvette classi Poti e Riga. La fregata turca è lontana oltre 140 miglia nautiche, perciò ha tutto il tempo di prepararsi. Vedremo se lo farà bene.

    Ore 13.35Z – La fregata turca, che si rivela essere la Fatih, della classe Yavuz, abbatte i due SS-N-12. Lancio allora altri due missili antinave, sempre con l’Admiral Gorshkov. Nel frattempo proseguono gli scontri aerei, durante i quali 4 F-16 turchi vengono abbattuti, contro la perdita di un MiG-29.

    Sei minuti più tardi uno dei due missili colpisce la fregata Fatih, priva ormai di missili SAM. Essa era dotata infatti di soli 8 SAM del tipo Aspide, che aveva lanciato contro i primi due P-500 Bazalt. Le artiglierie non si rivelano essere sufficienti e la nave turca viene affondata.

    Il secondo missile aggancia la portacontainer Antaeus, che naviga a poche miglia dalla Fatih. La Antaeus era già stata danneggiata, non so ad opera di quale unità nemica e, quindi, il colpo si rivela fatale per lei.

    La Turchia passa all’offensiva e lancia attacchi contro gli aerei in volo in Bulgaria, sovietici e rumeni. In contemporanea arrivano numerosi Tomahawk, probabilmente lanciati da navi americane nel Mar di Marmara, che colpiscono postazioni missilistiche nella zona delle basi aeree di Uzundzhovo e Graf Ignatievo, sempre in territorio rumeno. I miei SAM non riescono ad ingaggiare i missili in arrivo, se non quando è troppo tardi.

    Lo scenario procede, ma a rilento. Molto a rilento. Questo è dovuto alla pesantezza dello scenario che, nonostante il mio laptop non sia proprio da buttare, progredisci moooolto lentamente. E' un po' esasperante.

    Ad ora non è successo un gran che oltre a quello che ho già segnalato. Scontri aerei tra MiG-29 ed F-16 turchi, nient'altro.
    Questo solo per dire che non ho abbandonato, ma che, nel poco tempo libero che mi lascia WitP, non riesco a progredire come vorrei.
