Blind man’s bluff in Suursaari Casino

I have been very delighted about the amount of reads I have gotten from abroad concerning the HX-program and my installments about fighter action in Archipelago sea. As a err say public service I thought it might be wiser to make same kind of posts in English so that, I humbly hope, the readers can continually come is and get their HX-simulations and analysis from epämuodikkaita ajatuksia.

The Finnish bid of HX figter replacement scenario is centered around seven scenarios Finnish airforce asked the sellers to address. I do not have the foggiest what these might be, so I have decided to make a guess what these might be. This time around we will be seeing how the HX fighters fare against modern/modernish Air defense complex situated in Suursaari.

The scenario

Suursaari used to be a part of Finland, and nowadays it is sort of a enclave of Soviet union pushed between Estonia and Finland. There actually IS an radar station on the island, but as a buildup for war I think there would most definitely be a long range Air defense complex as well.

Suursaari is, as you can see, rather close to finnish coast and only maybe a 130km from Helsinki. So it gives Russia a good lace for monitoring the Finnish southern aerospace.

I dropped some assets for ir defense as well. I ventured for S-300 Systemin its most modern form protected by exessive amount of Buk M1 and Pantsir systems. I have come to underrestand that Russians have not been too impressed with Patsir in Syria and have mostly been protecting the system with TORs since Israeli Air Force gave them good walloping earlier.

The place of radar in real life. I t is obviously at the highest point of the Suursaari. I placed other defensive assets to other high points for defense.

Russian defenses in place. BUK M1 plattoons have ample range to get into play from smaller islands without creating too target rich enviroment into the island.

So here you have the target. Lets get started with attacking force. The goal is to destroy the surveillance radar, S-300 system and SSM system. All else is extra. I try to take into account different Air forces different approaches to SEAD/DEAD warfare and most of all to give it a honest run. If there are anomalies i point them out.

First up are the Super Hornets.

    Tuo tutka-asema sijainnee jossain Haukkavuoren alueella; sen korkein kohta on v 1942 topografisen kartan mukaan 142 m. Lounatkorkia sijaitsee runsaat 2 km etelämpänä; sen korkein kohta (saman kartan mukaan) on 158 m. Topografinen kartta löytyy osoitteesta
