zicon 1  JTS Wolfpack 3rd Party Scenarios by lecrop
I have opened a website where I will be publishing scenarios for this fantastic game, I hope you find it interesting. At the moment there is only one, the attack on Convoy BD-5, but more to come.

Looks interesting - - a quick play revealed:  Man, that's one rodeo!! Trying to coordinate the attacks of 8 U-boats.  That'll keep you awake!

On a second note, If this is going to be an ongoing development, Chad, maybe we ought to make this its own separate thread?

Third scenario added:

Attack on Convoy AT-46 - 18 May, 1942: The convoy AT-46 left Alexandria consisting of five merchant ships, escorted by four destroyers that formed an outer ring and two corvettes and two armed whalers as close screen. The convoy proceeded in three columns, but owing to heavy seas and a strong headwind at only 4 to 5 knots. The poor speed upset the carefully arranged routing and brought the convoy to positions where there was the greatest danger from U-boats during dark hours instead of daylight. At 19.11 hours on 20 May, U-431 (Kptlt. Dommes) spotted the ships about 65 miles east of Tobruk, submerged immediately, passed close to the leading escorts and dived deep after firing two torpedoes at the biggest of the five ships from within the convoy at 20.19 hours. One of the torpedoes struck the Eocene, the leading ship of the port column, which was immediately abandoned by her crew.

Fourth scenario added:

The sinking of the Avenger - 15 November, 1942: In preparation for the Operation Torch, the Convoy MKF-1Y reached Gibraltar Harbour on the morning of November 14th before sailing for the UK at 1800 hours. The convoy came under attack 45 nm south of Cape Santa Maria, Portugal. Shortly after 0305 on the morning of the 15th, the convoy escort commander ordering an immediate turn to starboard, detecting a U-Boat in the area; U-155, under the orders of KptLt. Adolf Cornelius Piening was at that moment preparing to fire torpedoes, and was forced to fire from a considerably longer distance that originally planned. Piening fired two torpedoes at this longer range, and a third shortly after as the range closed. The first ship hit was the USS Almaack, she was hit as she steadied on the new heading, and moments later a second ship, the HMS Ettrick. The third torpedo struck the escort carrier HMS Avenger port side amidships at 0320. This was a catastrophic hit and the resulting explosion ripped through her Bomb Room and ignited the munitions stored there; the ship literally had her guts torn out by the resulting secondary explosions. The centre section of the ship gone her bow and stern sections rose in the air as her back broke; HMS Avenger sunk in under 5 minutes with only 12 survivors. The Commanding Officer, 67 Officers and 446 ratings were lost.

RE: JTS Wolfpack 3rd Party Scenarios by lecrop
Fifth (and last for now) scenario added:

Nightmare Convoy - 19 August, 1941: Convoy OG-71 was the 71st of the numbered OG convoys Outbound from the British Isles to Gibraltar. The convoy departed Liverpool on 13 August 1941 and was found on 17 August by a Focke-Wulf Fw 200 Condor of Kampfgeschwader 40. Starting on August 19, it became the first convoy of the war to be attacked by a German wolfpack, when reached by 8 U-boats operating out of Brest. Ten ships comprising a total tonnage of 15,185 tons were sunk before the U-boats lost contact on 23 August. This convoy was known as "Nightmare Convoy". Eight merchant ships, two naval escorts and over 400 lives were lost, including 152 from the commodore's ship, Aguila. The Aguila losses included the 22 "lost Wrens" (members of the Women's Royal Naval Service, or WRNS) who had volunteered for duties at Gibraltar. After this, Wrens were never sent again on passenger liners in convoys, but transported on HM ships.

Just purchased wolfpack and I am still learning, but is good to know that there is already a custom scenario maker!
Maybe we'll see a mediterranean mod to add the convoy battles between Italy and North Africa?

Post number 4 seems to be a scenario set in the Med, no?

Oh. I read '65 miles east of Tobruk' as the location in post 4. That's what it says. The description is inaccurate?
