Like my last two ASW scenarios, this one is pretty much a stand alone situation. My next step is to incorporate these into larger operations, so stand by! Drop me a line and let me know what you think. Enjoy! Dave Steinmeyer
Well, here's another scenario which was once just for the original Harpoon board game. It's quite small, but the value of the tactics it teaches cannot be understated. Dave Steinmeyer
