Default Western Mediterranean OOB

There was little information on that part of the world but someone put some element at some point and of course I collected it. As a result, I came up with something that I use as a base for my own.

First there is Italy

Italian Army
Tenente-Colonello Roberto Falvi

1st Italian Army
1st Aviation Group
Railway Engineer Regiment
1st Anti-Aircraft Command
1st Chemical Battalion

Notes:
Italy maintains a nation police force which is paramilitary (Carabinieri) which numbers approximately 90,000 but is dispersed in Platoon Sized elements throughout the country.

Concerning the air force, the OOB is an idea of what could have survived. However, this is based on todays figure and the T2K figures would be highly different: http://www.scramble.nl/airforces.htm.
Aeronautica Militare Italiana
4° Stormo
Aircraft: 5 F-104, 3 MB-339, 3 Warrior.
31° Stormo

Operations in Western Mediterranean (Summer 1997)

The entry of Italy into the Third World War as part of the Mediterranean Pact on 2 July 1997 in support of her Greek ally left the NATO position in Southern Europe in disarray. Much like the situation which had confronted the Allies during the Second World War, Italy’s geographical position dominating the center of the Mediterranean Basin threatened to sever NATO’s sea lines of communication across to Turkey, Yugoslavia, and Romania.

Turkey and Yugoslavia were being supplied with fuel and some munitions by sea, and the were dependent on the sea lanes to support the war effort. Yugoslavia in turn was sending munitions across its border into Romania, to support their resistance to the Warsaw Pact invasion. With Italy’s entry into the war, Yugoslavia’s ports were closed to NATO shipping, and the convoy route to Turkey subject to naval and air attack until the Italian Navy and Air force could be neutralized.

When the 1st Italian Army entered into Austria and Yugoslavia, then pressed on into Germany, SACEUR needed to reopen the sea lanes and split Italian Recourses, perhaps even bring the Italian military to a logistical breaking point.

CINCAFSOUTH (WEST) had significant forces to bear against the Italians In the form of the I Iberian Corps (an amalgamation of the I Portuguese and I Spanish Corps), the 173rd US Airborne Brigade, and the 8th Marine Regiment, and the Canadian Airborne Regiment.

The Italian Army was heavily engaged at the time. The Italian III and V Corps were forcing their way through the Austrian Alps into Bavaria, while the V Corps was advancing through Slovenia attempting to link up with allied Hungarian forces moving into North Eastern Serbia. While resistance was fierce on both fronts, the Italian Army was moving forwards as the bulk of the defending forces were on other fronts and still redeploying to meet the Italian threat.

CINCAFSOUTH devised a plan to cripple Italian Naval and Air operations in the Mediterranean. On 29 July 1997 an carefully orchestrated air campaign was unleashed on Italy from Spain, and US Aircraft Carriers. US F117 aircraft operating from Spain attacked the air defense network in Sicily and Sardinia, followed by F111 strike aircraft which attacked airfields up and down the length of the southern half of the Italian Peninsula. US Naval aircraft searched for and attacked the Italian surface fleet. The Spanish and Portuguese Air forces where responsible to attack airfields in Sicily, and Sardinia respectively. Naples, Palermo, Cagliari, and Taranto were subject to attack by a rain of TLAMs. By the end of 2 August, the Italian surface fleet had lost most of its major units, including the Garibaldi which had been struck by no less than 7 Harpoon ASMs before she broke in half when her magazine exploded. What remained of the Italian Surface fleet began moving northward into the Adriatic.

Operation Carthaginian

Operation Carthaginian began on 1 August with the Airdrop of the US 173rd Airborne Brigade, and the Canadian Airborne Regiment outside of Messina, on Sicily. They were supported by the landing of the 8th US Marine Regiment at Marsala. On the morning of 3 August, the Canadian Airborne had seized the municipal airfield, and a stream of C130 and C17 aircraft began airlifting in the Espana Airmobile Brigade. Italian forces in Sicily were largely centered on the Aosta Infantry Brigade (Motorized) concentrated outside of Palermo, and 1 Brigade of Carabinieri disperced throughout the island in platoon sized formations in almost every town.

The morning of 2 August the Iberian Airborne Brigade Group (formed from the Espana, and Portuguese Light Airborne Brigade) dropped on Cagliari’s airfield, and the Portuguese Marine Brigade made an unopposed landing at Alghero, and began moving at once on Sassari. By Evening of the 4th, all Carabinieri resistance had ended on Sardinia.

On Sicily, the Aosta Brigade began moving on Messina, ignoring the landing at Marsala. Meanwhile, on the mainland the San Marino Marine Battalion Group attempted an amphibious crossing of the Straits of Massina on the night of 3 August. The Italian Marines where decimated by the American paratroopers who where prepared for that eventuality. Later, at dawn of the 5th the Spanish Marines began landing at Licata, and began advancing towards Syracuse. On the 6th US Marines entered Palermo while greatly reduced Aosta Brigade battered itself to pieces against the American and Canadian paratroopers whom had been digging in to Messina for days. Enroute, the Italian Brigade had been under constant air attack by USMC and Spanish Harrier and USMC Cobra Aircraft. The North Coastal Road became a highway of death.
On the mainland, almost immediately the Pinerolo Infantry Brigade (Mechanized) began moving down the coast from Naples to link up with the San Marino Battalion. It too was subject to air attack for the majority of its journey down the coastal road. It was met in Villa San Giovanni by a tactical nuclear strike from the US (100kt) on the 7th, making it very clear to the Italian Government that no reinforcement from the mainland would be possible.

This strike marked the end of active combat operations in Sicily, following the strike, the Aosta Brigade surrendered to the NATO Forces on the Island and the Carabinieri had been overwhelmed, having been deployed piecemeal across the Island. The last major Town to fall under NATO control was Catania into which Spanish Marines moved on the 9th.
The US and Canadian forces were replaced in the next month by the remainder of the Iberian Corps following the collapse of the Turkish Front, due to the one sided use of nuclear weapons.

Of course! This night at home I will give your information the careful look it deserves. I'm growing impatient. I'm sure your orbat will be an interesting matter to debate in one of my T2K groups. We tried to write an Spanish Orbat when you asked me for any suggestions about the matter in the French Orbat thread, but we lost our path enjoying from the conversation instead annotating anything.

The first one is what I came up for (first draft, it's often incomplete). However, the archives are not mine. As for all archives, it's a collection of what I gathered overtime. As I was not thinking about posting it back, I can't give it the proper credit. I'll be more than happy to see the true authors posting them or completing them.

Default Operation Carthaginian

Bona nit!

First of all, let me say that I like very much Operation Carthaginian (a very suitable name, by the way). The idea about a major airbone operation against Italy opens a new non-exploited scenario for me. And, as former Spanish paratrooper roughly by the time of the Twilight war, Operation Carthaginian gives me a lot of ideas based in my first hand experiences, in the case of a group of characters being members of the "Iberian Airborne Brigade Group".

The collaboration between Portuguese and Spanish paras seems to me perfectly plausible. Operation Carthaginian seems a good way to introduce Spain and Portugal as active NATO partners in the war. It seems credible to me that both countries probably would have rejected entering the war immediately after the opening of the hostilities between Germany and Poland, arguing that the Germans were acting on their own while attacking the polish and that they don't consider themselves tied by the NATO treaty in that case.

But with the unexpected Italian attack against the NATO fleet en route to Turkey, little can be discussed by Portugal and Spain without breaking the NATO treaty. And both countries (and especially Spain) would feel more comfortable fighting as the southern flank of the NATO than sending troops to Central Europe.

It would be interesting to think what would happen to the Spanish troops in Italy after the falling of the nukes in Spain and the low level civil war depicted in "Mediterranean Cruise" module that eventually allowed Catalonia to become independent.

Default About the fourth archive.

I'm curious to know about these Spanish units depicted as been in French soil. Any material about a NATO invasion of France? The relationship between France and the NATO is a good point that I think is left somehow vague in the Twilight timeline.

Default About the Orbats

Mmmm... It's getting late. I will left the orbats for tomorrow. At first glance there are some mistakes. I'm doing a little research about the structure of that would have the Spanish Army in the Twilight War period but I'm only have fragmentary information. No problem to get this same information for the present day, but the Spanish Army have suffered a major transformation in its structure these past years.

Fighting Flamingo from these parts is the author of the Carthaginian piece.

We in the DC Group are using the NATO 1989 orbat from tanknet.org (the latest version is at http://208.84.116.223/forums/index.p...c=20414&st=560 , second post has a link to the actual document) as the base for NATO forces in the Third World War wargaming we are working on to work out the conventional phase of the war. We are adjusting that orbat based on Cold War era plans for equipment modernization and, to a limited extent, changes in the force structure. It's a lot of work to unwind the post-Cold War changes that both the Pact and NATO forces went through in the 1990s.

I can't see NATO units on French soil, except as invading forces, after the French grab for the Rhineland. And given the disparity in strength, the plausibility of NATO forces invading French soil is nil.

For the recovery plan, we are operating on the basis that there is limited cooperation and trade between NATO and French forces in the Middle East and a low-level rivalry everywhere else. Neither side has the military strength or political will to push issues. From the American point of view, France is exploiting the world situation (and its prewar allies) for its own advantage, with its invasion of Germany and the Netherlands, support for Quebecois rebels and growing influence in the Middle East. From the French point of view, America is a broken land that is a dying power, no longer fit or deserving of a role on the world stage as important as it had before engaging in a reckless war.

And please, lets not turn this into a thread about RL Franco-American relations!

Thanks Chico I couldn't remember that and I had not writen down any names. I put his name next to the archive. This is T2K material and that's it. It was usefull to me and I hope that it could be usefull to others.

For my part I have mostly kept the OOBs, I hope that some of us might retain some of the texts and stories that were coming with them. Some were very nice.

Some post might be a little confusing, sorry about that.
Is that a misprint? or an smg I'm not familiar with? I'm guessing you mean the US manufactured World War Two era M3a1 Grease Gun smg but if there is such a thing as an M13A1 smg what is it and who makes it?

I think it was a misprint and it is the M3A1 as you guessed. However, as it was an archive (and as I didn't care about the weapon they were carrying ), I never noticed. Nevertheless, as you asked, I checked and I have not found anything such as an M13A1 smg.
