    I assume the Bay of Bengal scenario is inspired by the first mission in the campaign of the old Jane's Fleet Command?

    Miguel Molina has posted a new revision of the community scenario pack, the compendium of Command scenarios crafted by the user community. The new release contains twelve brand-new scenarios:


    WEC Davos Attacked by Terrorists, 2016: The World Economic Forum (WEC) is hosted every year in Davos, Switzerland, and attended by numerous political, diplomatic and industry leaders. This year, anonymous threats of a terrorist attack on the event have prompted heavier-than-usual security measures by the local authorities, including the Swiss police and army as well as support by Austrian and NATO air forces.


    Black Tiger I, 2015: The last remnants of USMC Afghanistan veterans are returning to CONUS and transiting the straits of Hormuz, along with the Carl Vinson CSG. But a covertly Russia-backed Iran is determined not to allow safe passage.


    Black Tiger II, 2015: Earlier today, a section of Superhornets was forced to intercept and drive off Iranian MiGs that flew out over Gulf waters to harrass and 'thump' a maritime patrol plane. As the excitement of the morning fades and night falls, there are growing indications that fresh trouble may be brewing...


    Black Tiger III, 2015: In the past two days, several incidents have increased tensions to the boiling point. Iranian fighters have harrassed U.S. maritime patrol aircraft and flown aggressively in the airspace surrounding the two naval groups. Even worse, several missile-armed gunboats fought a surface action against the 5th Fleet on the night of February 6th. Although Iran claims that the boats were manned by Al Quaeda insurgents and that they had nothing to do with the incident, intelligence sources believe the craft involved were actually Iranian naval units flying under false colors, and the diplomatic fallout hasn't stopped yet. This afternoon, Carrier Strike Group 3 will stand on station just west of the Strait of Hormuz, watching tensely as the Tarawa group makes the transit.


    Black Tiger IV, 2015: In the past two days, several incidents have increased tensions to the boiling point. Today the USS Carl Vinson and her escorts plan to transit the strait behind their amphibious group, but they have no idea the horror that awaits them. For decades, it has been nothing more than a respect for the strength of the United States that has kept the Strait of Hormuz open to the world. With Iran on the brink of becoming a nuclear power and with the windfall of top line military equipment they have obtained, the time has come for the regional balance of power to shift decisively. The Iranians are planning to hand the United States Navy the most crushing defeat it has ever seen, seize control of the Persian Gulf - and hold it.


    Black Tiger V, 2015: Bolstered by a new secret alliance with Russia and the influx of a wealth of modern aircraft and weapons systems, the Iranians have executed their plans to become a nuclear power and seize permanent control of the Persian Gulf region. A surprise attack on US ships transiting the Hormuz has resulted in heavy casualties and effective blocking of the straits. Iran capitalyzed on the ensuing confusion and temporary paralysis to successfully test its first nuclear weapon and declare itself a nuclear power. Now the U.S. Navy plans to carry out an operation to re-open the straits and restore freedom of navigation in the Persian Gulf. For this operation, a couple of USN late Cold War projects, the F-14E Tomcat 21 and the AIM-152A AAAM missile (the replacement for the Phoenix) are coming out of the mothballs.


    Trans-Atlantic Convoy Duty, 1985: WWIII has broken out in Europe with the classic Soviet thrust through the Fulda Gap. Unfortunately, the Soviets have also managed to take Iceland, taking effective control of the GIUK gap and leaving the northern convoy routes exposed and vulnerable. Defend the convoy and your battle group from Soviet attack.


    Facing the Bear (The War That Never Was), 1989: Northern Norway may have been the most important theater in the world if the Cold War ever went hot. US reinforcements had to be shipped across the Atlantic in convoys of slow transports vulnerable to Soviet submarines and long-range naval aviation assets. The outcomes of the titanic battles in Germany were completely dependent upon a much smaller battle that would have unfolded in a sparsely-populated, harsh Nordic environment. This scenario, playable from the Soviet side, tries to capture the first stage of that battle.


    Comte De Grasse's Squadron, 1988: World War III has broken out. Limited-scale chemical and tactical-nuclear exchanges have been performed, but so far confined strictly to the Central Front and at sea. During these first few critical days of the war, one of the goals of the American navy is to secure the vital sea lanes of the Atlantic so that convoys will be able to resupply NATO forces in the coming weeks. As part of this effort, a task force centered around the American destroyer Comte de Grasse has been assigned to patrol the waters near the Azores.


    Uncle Mark's Tutorials #3 - Yorktown in the Gulf of Sidra, 1985: Libya has long made the claim that the entire Gulf of Sidra is its territorial waters, as opposed to the normal 12-mile limit prescribed under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS). The US is sending a message by deliberately moving its ships through what the rest of the world considers international waters. This time the Aegis cruiser Yorktown, damaged from a recent explosion but still battle-worthy, has drawn the lot.


    Kingdom Come, 2018: Following an abortive assassination attempt on the King of Saudi Arabia, compelling links between the assassins and the Egyptian national intelligence agency, the Mukhabarat, quickly came to light. In the ensuing furor, diplomatic attempts to resolve the crisis between the two countries failed as each side dug in their heels. The Saudis would tolerate nothing less than having the responsible parties delivered to them immediately, while the Egyptians were still reeling from the realization that the Mukhabarat had initiated such an outrage without official sanction - but to save face would not admit so. With only hours to go before the deadline of the Saudi's ultimatum, the Egyptians came to the conclusion, under the circumstances, that war was the more tenable option. The Kingdom would oblige.


    Sinking A Battlewagon, 1990: With the construction of the Kirov-class battlecruisers, the US Navy once again faces armored, large enemy combatants. This experiment, with an Iowa as the target, tests the effectiveness of submarine weapons against such targets.

    Miguel Molina has posted a new revision of the community scenario pack, the compendium of Command scenarios crafted by the user community. The new release contains ten brand-new scenarios:


    Attack Sub Duel Off Hokkaido, 2003: This scenario assumes that tensions have increased between Japan and Russia. Japanese Coast Guard vessels have fired on Russian fishing boats that have strayed into Japanese territorial waters. Russia has threatened to attack Japanese shipping in retaliation. The submarine Harushio has been ordered to support a surface group transiting to Nagasaki. Russian attacks are highly likely.


    First Battle of Donetsk Airport, 2014: On May 16, 2014 the Ukrainian government started an anti-terrorist operation against pro-Russian insurgents in the Donetsk Oblast in early April 2014. Pro-Russian protesters and insurgents affiliated with the DPR captured and occupied numerous government buildings, towns, and territories in the region. In Donetsk city itself, many government buildings were under separatist control. During the morning of May 26, pro-Russian insurgents captured the terminal buildings of Donetsk International Airport, and demanded the withdrawal of government forces from the area. Soon after, Ukraine issued an ultimatum to the insurgents, demanding they surrender immediately. This was rejected, causing paratroopers to launch an assault on the airport, accompanied by airstrikes against insurgent positions.


    Here, There And Everywhere, 1965: On July 24, 1965 an F-4C flying CAP over North Vietnam was shot down by a Russian-supplied SA-2 missile. This was the first attack by SAMs on US aircraft and the shootdown took Washington by surprise. A reprisal raid was decided. On July 27 a large raid of F-105s was launched against the sites and nearby barracks where the SAM crews were living. The costliest yet day of the Vietnam air war was about to unroll.


    Northern Fury #9.1 - Eisenhower Moves North, 1994: Entering the sixth day of WW3, the situation in the North Atlantic remains desperate. The rapid capture of North Norway and Iceland have allowed the Soviets to surge almost 100 submarines into the Atlantic. The Enterprise CVBG spent two difficult days blunting an attempt by the Red Banner Northern Fleet to interdict the sea lanes, she is now retiring, as are the major Soviet surface units, to replenish. Now, as Enterprise steams south, the USS Eisenhower, after three days of hard fighting in the Mediterranean, has passed through the pillars of Hercules and is heading north. She and the Carl Vinson CVBG will strike at Soviet forces around Iceland three days from now.


    Northern Fury #3 - Dagger To The Heart, 1994: A quiet Sunday morning in New York Harbour, it’s cold and windy and the main topic of conversation at the Sandy Hook, New Jersey Coast Guard Station is the ongoing fiasco at the Olympics...


    Scenario Editor Tutorial - Adding Weapons, 2015: Unlike other Command scenarios, this is intended to be played in scenario-editor mode. In this scenario, the player will add aircraft to an airfield, arm the aircraft, and then shoot down an easy target.


    Uncle Mark's Tutorials #4 - Boston Guards the Denmark Strait, 1985: Hostilities have broken out in Europe. The war is only a few days old, but there has been limited use of chemical and tactical nuclear weapons, and American vessels have been cleared to use nuclear depth charges against enemy submarines. You are in command of the American nuclear attack submarine Boston. You have been assigned to patrol the Denmark Strait, which lies between Iceland and Greenland. Controlling the Denmark Strait would be vital in any conflict between NATO and the Soviet Union (or, today, Russia) as it connects the Norwegian Sea with the rest of the Atlantic Ocean.


    Uncle Mark's Tutorials #5 - Motozintla Incursion, 2015: Existing tensions between Mexico and Guatemala have increased in recent months. Matters came to a head when Mexican forces fired on a Guatemalan fishing boat that had strayed into Mexico's territorial waters. Accounts of the attack vary, but it appears that the fishing boat had initially refused to surrender to Mexican forces and had attempted to flee back into international waters. However, many believe the level of force used by Mexico was excessive. With Mexico's military already spread thin trying to keep the drug cartels under control, there is concern that Guatemala will launch some kind of punitive expedition. This scenario is designed to give players practice with air power vs. ground forces situations, on a low-intensity conflict.


    Waller Takes Charge, 1955: Hostilities erupted between NATO and the Soviet Union in 1955. The war is less than one day old, and both sides have taken terrific losses in the Mediterranean. It falls to the American destroyer Waller and forces attached to her to seize control of the waters south of Crete.


    War of the Thirty-Fives, 2021: The Kurds have finally secured independence, and a windfall of now-rising oil prices and the investment opportunities that have come with formal recognition have allowed their (not entirely unjustifiably) paranoid leaders to embark on the kind of military overbuildup that has not been seen for a while. Among this buildup is a new air force, built from the ground up. With Western purchases coming with far too many strings attached, they have obtained a massive number of the most advanced Fulcrum variant, the MiG-35. Unfortunately, the Kurdish political problem has continued in Turkey, with emboldened Kurdish fighters in that country's east increasingly using their neighbor as a sanctuary. Clashes are an unfortunate routine. Now Ankara seeks to break the stalemate by using their finally-ready fifth generation stealth F-35s. But stealth or not, superior technology or not, the Kurdish government is prepared to defend its territorial integrity....




    Some of the above scenarios use the most recent version (v440) of the Command databases, which are included with the v1.09 RC11 (B746) update. We therefore recommend downloading and applying this update before using the new scenarios. Alternatively, players can hold for the official release of the v1.09 update which is approaching fast.

    I picked up Northern Inferno last month. It's pretty good fun... especially if you enjoyed Tom Clancy's Red Storm Rising novel

    A big thumbs up to Dimitris and the CMANO team for supporting this title so well since release, with lots of new features and improvements - many of which were requested by the users. CMANO isn't for the faint hearted or those with a short attention span... it's got a mean learning curve. However, it is a pretty compelling and unique game that gives you an immense sandbox to play in.

    getting this game is my wet dream, only if I could find enough money I would make it come reality. Im sure its worth every penny. I was hoping though that there was a free demo scenario or such for people to try the game before buying it, as I fear that I abandon the game after a few hours playtime when the complexity finally overwhelms me the 50% off sale at steam is teasing me like hell

    Miguel Molina has posted a new revision of the community scenario pack, the compendium of Command scenarios crafted by the user community. The new release contains fifteen brand-new scenarios:


    Biddle's Team, 1982: Three weeks after the assassination of Anwar Sadat on October 6, 1981, Egypt has slipped into political chaos. A Soviet surface group is currently en route to offer support to the pro-Soviet faction now struggling for control. The United States, however, has recognized a pro-Western faction as the legitimate government of Egypt, and has no intention of allowing Egypt to turn into a Soviet puppet state.


    Biddle's Quandary, 1982: The Middle East has become increasingly unstable since the assassination of Anwar Sadat in 1981. Egypt has avoided total collapse, but militant groups have been responsible for numerous acts of terrorism in the last several months. Evidence suggests that Syria and Libya have been sponsoring some of these terrorist groups. The US has moved some of its ships near Syria as a show of force, hoping the proximity of American military might will discourage further acts of terrorism. Egypt has sent one of its patrol boats into the area as well. Syria, however, has responded by threatening to attack any vessel that violates its territorial waters.


    Biddle goes to Algeria, 1984: Tensions have increased between the United States and Algeria in the early 1980s. To increase presence in the region, a small force centered on the cruiser Biddle is tasked to patrol defensively off the Algerian coast, screened by RAF aircraft from Gibraltar.


    Fall of Seoul, 1950: North Korean forces have crossed the 38th parallel and invaded South Korea, in violation of UN agreements. This scenario covers the first three days of fighting for the US forces in the Korean war. Your tasks are as follows:
    * Coordinate an evacuation by air and sea from Seoul to US bases in Japan.
    * Establish air superiority over South Korea.
    * Conduct tactical interdiction against communist advance south of the 38th parallel.


    MINUSMA, 2015: The atrocities commited by the rebel groups in Mali's north has taken a turn for the worse. The UN has authorized airstrikes to support the Malian goverment in its push to once again retake the north of the country. To support the UN's mission in Mali, Sweden has deployed its fighter jets abroad for the first time since the Congo Crisis. You are to employ airstrikes to weaken the rebels ability to wage an effective fight towards the goverment and you are to provide reconnissance support for the Malian goverment if requested. Collateral damage or friendly losses will not be tolerated!


    Norrland Defense, 1990: Defense of Norrland and its strategically important F 21 Luleĺ Airbase and Luleĺ Harbour from a pre-emptive Soviet strike in preparation for a full blown invasion. Defend the Luleĺ airbase against Soviet assaults and engage the Soviet ships and submarines reported in the area.


    Sandbox Scenario #1: Surface Encounter, 1991: In this adaptation of scenario "Surface Encounter" from the boardgame "Harpoon: Captain's Edition", an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer is escorting a Whidbey Island-class LSD in the Norwegian Sea and it happens to detect a Soviet Sovremenny-class destroyer with an Ivan Rogov-class landing ship. A skirmish ensues with both sides trying to sink the other's escorted ships. The Soviets win a victory if they sink the LSD while the US wins if it can sink the Rogov.


    To Kill A Mockingbird, 1979: This scenario pits the Soviet air defenses on the Kola Peninsula against the legendary SR-71 - and against the equally-legendary Soviet command chain bureaucracy! To win this mission, you must not only shoot down the dreaded Blackbird, but also do so only after receiving Moscow's permission. Better yet, you will not know where and when exactly the secretive plane is coming - this mission is designed to be dynamic and will play differently each time. Sometimes you will have a good shot, while other times the Habu will elude you entirely.


    USS Midway vs Cuba (The War That Never Was), 1989: When WW3 breaks out in the early 1990s, it spreads everywhere, quickly. One exception has been Cuba, issuing an open letter of neutrality to everyone. However, Cuba is now planning on entering the war. The Soviet Union has instructed them to enter the war just as the US is sending the first of their heavy divisions towards Europe. What if Cuba did enter the war at this percarious moment? All that the US has standing between an entire nation's armed forces and the lifeline to Europe is the USS Midway, fitted with a scratch SAG and reserve F/A-18 squadrons. Can they hold the line?


    Northern Fury 9.2 - Changing Of The Guard, 1994: The situation in the North Atlantic remains desperate. The rapid capture of North Norway and Iceland have allowed the Soviets to surge almost 100 submarines into the Atlantic. The USS Enterprise CVBG spent two difficult days blunting an attempt by the Red Banner Northern Fleet to interdict the sea lanes, she is now preparing to retire for re-supply and re-organization, as are the major Soviet surface units. The USS Eisenhower, after three days of hard fighting in the Mediterranean, has passed through the Pillars of Hercules and is heading north. She will join the USS Carl Vinson CVBG to strike at Soviet forces around Iceland in three days. As the NATO player you must safely withdraw the Enterprise CVBG and replace it with the Carl Vinson CVBG in a holding area south of Iceland. As the WP player you have multiple submarines and significant air assets at your disposal. Your task is to sink one or both US aircraft carriers.


    Northern Fury 9.3 - Command At Sea, 1994: The USS Carl Vinson CVBG is moving up to relieve the Enterprise. The USS Eisenhower, after three days of hard fighting in the Mediterranean, has passed through the Pillars of Hercules and is heading north. She will join the USS Carl Vinson CVBG to strike at Soviet forces around Iceland in three days. As the NATO player you must maneuver and protect the USS Mount Whitney as it transports the Commander of the US 2nd Fleet (NATO’s CINCLANT) to a patrol area off the Azores. As the WP player you have multiple submarines and valuable intelligence indicating that a ‘High Value Target’ is arriving in your patrol area.


    Northern Fury 9.4 - Cutting The Tether, 1994: This is a small but critical scenario in the battle to isolate Soviet forces on Iceland. Since taking the island of Jan Mayen in the first hours of the war, the desolate spot on the Greenland Sea has become a critical link in Iceland’s supply chain, a long and arduous tether back to the Kola Peninsula. Your job in this scenario is to cut that tether.


    Northern Fury 9.5 - Here Comes The Cavalry, 1994: The US 2nd Fleet is now ready for its first counter-attack. The 1st phase has the USS Eisenhower and the USS Carl Vinson CVBGs strike at Soviet forces around Iceland. In order to neutralize the significant Soviet forces on Iceland, your task is to move north and establish local air superiority over the Keflavik peninsula as a precursor to a large USAF strike tomorrow night. You have 28 hours to destroy Soviet Air Defences over Iceland. Detailed SEAD and Strike tasks will be the Air Force's job, but you need to clean the airspace to make that possible. You know that there are formidable air defences both on and over Iceland so this will not be an easy task.


    Northern Fury 9.6 - Stab In The Dark, 1994: Your task is simple, as the Captain of the Canadian Submarine HMCS Onondaga, infiltrate Soviet ASW defences north of Reykjavik and insert a Special Forces team comprising of 4 Canadian JTF2 (Joint Task Force 2) and 4 British SBS (Special Boat Service) operatives. However you may find that in war – nothing is simple.


    Northern Fury 10.1 - Poke in the Eye, 1994: 42 hours ago, your Special Forces team comprising of 4 Canadian JTF2 (Joint Task Force 2) and 4 British SBS (Special Boat Service) operatives arrived in Iceland. Now it’s time to earn your paycheck.
