Default Vital Airfield

Vital Airfield - Gotland

Date: July 4, 1989

Battle Location: Bunge-Farosund, Sweden

Battle Type: Soviet Union assault vs Sweden/USMC counterattack

Design by: Suhiir

Scenario description: Fictional Scenario

Mikhail Gorbachev's perestroika has not been popular with hard-line Communits Party officials. The erosion of power and prestige has resulted in a coup.

The justification for the coup, and in order to forestall public unrest, is fictitious evidence that non-aligned Finland (not a NATO member) is intending to militarily re-occupy Karelia, with Swedish assistance, and Gorbachev's blessings.

Both Finland and Sweden have partially mobilized but maintain their peace-time deployments. European NATO members have adopted a "Wait and see" stance.

A Marine Amphibious Unit Team (MAU), still aboard ship, has been deployed into the Baltic . Washington feels the Soviets won't want to involve NATO in their internal political squabbles.

Then, to everyones suprise, on July 3rd the Soviets invade Finland and Gotland. The Soviets have been VERY careful not to antogonize the European NATO members, even going so far as to have their units in Europe return to garrison. Needless to say the Europen NATO members are "discussing" the issue but have done nothing.

The US Navy is NOT happy about having an amphibious fleet in the Baltic but on orders from Washington deployed the MAU on Gotland before withdrawing.

Then on July 4th the Soviets invade Gotland and the Marines rush to secure the vital Bunge-Farosund airfield.

Designed to be played as Sweden/USMC.
This is a HUGE and LONG battle, as both sides struggle for control of the airfield.


I'll be curious to see what our resident Swedish expert thinks!

As always, feedback and bug reports are desired.
