      Bring on the Payne, a new scenario for HC2002 Gold Westpac battleset.

      This scenario investigates the use of the planned Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) in its natural environment - the littoral or "brown water" zone. Here, more particularly, in the context of an effort to locate and neutralize a terrorist ship armed with a weapon of mass destruction.

      Teaser:

      Intelligence reports indicate that a terrorist organization has procured at least one, and possibly two, atomic devices and loaded them aboard ship for transit to a target Western port. The target is believed to be a civilian infrastructure (a port, coastal airfield or city) in either of Australia, Japan or the Philippines. At last report, the terrorist ship (or ships) was believed to be in Indonesian waters and headed east. Recent political conflict between the American and Indonesian governments, fueled in large part by Jakarta's refusal to accept increased US Navy patrols in the Malacca Strait in the ongoing fight against terrorism, is expected to complicate the operation. The Indonesians have agreed to supply us with information gleaned from their own surveillance efforts, but it remains to be seen how helpful this will be, or indeed, if they will permit us to conduct a vigorous search operation in their waters. The Indonesians have been quite vocal in their opposition to increased American patrols in their territory. President Lee is insistent, however, that we enforce "custodial management" of these waters in order to find and neutralize this extremely serious terrorist threat.
