Harpoon 3 After-Action Reports


World War Three in 1985 - The Barrier

by Mike Mykytyn

Hey guys just wanted to drop you this AAR of 'The Barrier' from the World War in 1985 Battleset. This scenario was one of the better Cold War ASW scenarios I've played in a long time. This AAR will be brief and too the point as I don't want to spoil it for anybody else.

Started by pretty much staying with the setup he starts the player with the exception of some depth and course changes. In between the lines of subs and surface ships I assigned many Orion, Nimrod and Viking patrols. Almost as soon as I set up the action started. My SOSUS lines and sub barriers began to pick up many intermittent contacts and the fight began. There is also a new set of units to work with (Captor Minefields!) which were excellent models. Almost as soon as I set up incoming torpedoes clamed one of my Sturgeons. From there began a mad rush to cover gaps opening up in my defenses. I finally began to achieve some kills and some ground. Finally, after two good hours I achieved victory.

Can't wait to play the next one...
