As a new player, I picked this scenario to help get me up to speed.
I immediately launched a couple of Harriers and sent
them inland. Detached my frigate and destroyer into a
seperate group and they raced inland to provide SAM
cover and possible shelling. In route, destroyer
launched Tomahawks at bridges, command bunkers,
palaces (all the assigned targets) and the airstrip
(wasn't sure if enemy had planes, but was going to try
and keep them on the ground).
As the Tomahawks were racing inland, the Harriers
spotted four enemy ships. Harpoons dispatched from
frigate and destroyer and soon there were four hulks
on the bottom for divers to investigate.
The Harriers were pulled up out of range of the Roland
batteries and started investigating all the contacts
near shore. About this time the Tomahawks started
hitting their targets. Everything was pummelled,
however, a single Jaguar got of the ground. As it
neared the embassy it was dispatched by Harriers.
Now, time to recover people. I was looking at my
resources and was thinking about dispatching pairs of
Cobras to destroy the Roland batteries when I
remembered I had Marines ashore. After machine gun
fire and mortar rounds, both batteries were silenced
without risking airplanes. Semper fi!
Sent in the 12 choppers required and held them over
the target for the required time. Flew them back and
mission sucessful. Only loss was the embassy, not sure what destroyed it.
In return I destroyed a couple of Roland batteries, four
ships, couple bunkers, Jaguar, two bridges and the
In terms of money spent, I think the Tomahawks and
Harpoons far outpriced anything the Nigerians lost.
Fun scenario, but pretty simple. Might have been
different if there were some missile boats that found
my position, or if more enemy jets had got airborne. I
only had four Harriers with sidewinders for CAP.
