The 5th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year!

13.0 Fix, Hold, and Destroy

Sea of Dragons Battleset - Two Brothers - China invades Taiwan

China flexes its muscles with lots of exercises around Taiwan. Although diplomatic objections are raised by a number of nations, the exercises continue. Then, the PRC declares a maritime blockade: any ships entering the waters around Taiwan will be stopped and 'contraband' goods confiscated. 'Contraband' is loosely defined, but vessels carrying coal, oil, and LNG would appear to be favoured targets.

As coal, oil, and LNG stocks fall, the Taiwanese navy starts to escort convoys through the blockade zone. Then, something goes wrong. A convoy is intercepted and somebody fires on someone they shouldn't have. The PRC immediately launches an invasion fleet.

This scenario was inspired by the situation depicted in the Sea of Dragons publication from Clash of Arms.
