My Master Scenario List


Recommended Posts

After much deliberation and thought, I've decided on what scenarios I would love to see become available to DCS: F-14A/B. This is a bit of an "old-fashioned" thing, as the days of packing multiple theaters of war into a single simulation is not as feasible, due to the amount of detail packed into each one. But, if the designers were to ultimately create multiple campaigns for use with the mod, this is what I'd love to see:


  • Frequent Wind, 1975: Operation Frequent Wind was the F-14's combat debut, with VF-1 and VF-2 flying combat air patrol for the evacuation from Vietnam. My idea is to put a twist on history and have the F-14s encounter North Vietnamese fighters in one last air battle before a tragic chapter in American history comes to a close.

  • Rapid Deployment Force, 1980: This is a scenario adopted from one developed for the awesome air/naval simulation Command: Modern Air/Naval Operations. Civil unrest in the Kingdom in late-1979 results in open rebellion by Spring 1980. At the request of the Saudi royal family, the carriers USS Constellation and USS Dwight D. Eisenhower are tasked with attacking rebel positions in eastern Saudi Arabia to help pacify the insurgency and prevent Saudi Arabia from becoming another Iran.

  • Rock the Casbah - Middle East, 1982: A remake of a campaign featured in MicroProse's Fleet Defender, the Soviet Union sends military assistance to the Middle East after Israel's stunning victories upon invading Lebanon. All that stands between Israel and a Soviet task force headed towards the Mediterranean is a four-carrier super-task force comprised of the Forrestal, Independence, John F. Kennedy, and Dwight D. Eisenhower...

  • Navy Fighter Weapons School, 1984: Based on Dave "Bio" Baranek's memoir, Topgun Days, this would be an insider's look at NFWS during its glory days at Naval Air Station Miramar, California in the 1980s.

  • Backyard Brawl - North Pacific, 1986: Upon the outbreak of war in Europe following a U.S.-USSR confrontation in the Strait of Hormuz, the Soviet Pacific Fleet fortifies its bastion in the Sea of Okhotsk. A powerful task force comprised of the carriers Ranger and Carl Vinson and battleship New Jersey are deployed to the North Pacific to prevent the Soviet forces from deploying any further and, if ordered, to destroy Soviet military forces and installations in the Far East.

  • Central Command - Strait of Hormuz, 1986: After taking a beating during the now two-year-old Tanker War, Iran closes the Strait of Hormuz to compensate for its inability to defeat Iraq on the battlefield. This draws the immediate attention of both the United States and the Soviet Union, who both find the situation unacceptable. Unfortunately, neither side agrees on how the situation is to be resolved...

  • Navy Strike Warfare Center, 1990: In preparation for its upcoming deployment, Carrier Air Wing 14 participates in three-weeks of around-the-clock flying at Naval Air Station Fallon, Nevada.

  • Korean Peninsula, 1994: The Korean Nuclear Crisis takes an ominous turn when former president Jimmy Carter's historic trip to North Korea fails to sway dictator Kim Il-sung's position. With no choice left, President Bill Clinton requests sanctions and commences reinforcement of the U.S. military presence in the region. The carriers USS Kitty Hawk and USS Constellation are on-station, ready for orders...

  • Vengeance - Persian Gulf, 1996: After the bombing of the Khobar Towers on June 25, President Bill Clinton orders a large-scale retaliatory strike against Iranian military targets throughout the Gulf region. With land-based air power and the nuclear-powered carriers USS Enterprise and USS Carl Vinson in the North Arabian Sea, the United States is ready to deliver Iran a wake-up call they'll never forget.

  • Desert Badger, 1997: A U.S. aviator is shot down over Iraq during Operation Southern Watch. President Bill Clinton authorizes a strike on Saddam Hussein's command and control facilities in downtown Baghdad and on military targets within the no-fly zone to prevent the pilot's capture and to facilitate a successful rescue.
