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...
