The Six Day War

The Six Day War

This scenario plays the “Six day war” fought in the middle-east in 1967. This conflict almost triggered a direct military confrontation between the United States and Russia, as this was one of the fronts of the Cold War.

At the time, the newly formed Israeli state (1948) was not recognized as such by any Arab country, and therefore, threaten the very existence of Israel as a nation. Most of these countries had ever since waited for an opportunity to destroy Israel, and many wars were fought in order to accomplish this objective. The threat is still real as of today.

The 1967 “Six day war” was fought by a coalition of Egypt, Syria, Jordan and other Arab nations against Israel. The battle fields were the Sinai Peninsula (west of Israel), The Golan Heights (north-east) occupied by Syria, and Jerusalem (one half of the city was occupied by Jordanian forces). Other Arab nations joined the coalition and sent troops to all fronts under the orders of the Egyptian, Syrian and Jordanian commanders.

Please refer the story line below to understand a little more about this scenario.

OBJECTIVES

•Capture the Golan Heights from the Syrians (to the north-east)

•Defend the city of Jerusalem from the Jordanian troops close to your border.

•Conquer the Sinai Peninsula and the Suez Canal by capturing the city of Port Said from the Egyptians.

TIPS

•You and your enemies have five minutes before the war starts. Use this time to build your economy and knowledge, review your armies and their locations as well as of your enemies. Prepare your tactics and movements. Plan carefully, whatever first movements you do will affect the course of the war later.

•Your main advantage is your Air Force (this is a real fact for that conflict). Locate and destroy your enemy’s air bases (they won’t be able to build more air-bases as for game settings), fighters, bombers, missile silos and ports in all fronts. Do this early in the game. If you don’t, your enemies will be able to build large fleets on the air and sea and it will take you more time and resources to win the war…or be defeated.

•Your supply wagons can heal your military units. Make sure you have enough of them in all fronts.

•During the game, you will receive orders from the “Central Command” (message text on the top center of your monitor). Follow these orders or you will risk yourself to be “dismissed without honor” and loose the game.

STORY LINE

On 22 May, Egypt announced that the “Straits of Tiran” (on the Red Sea) would be closed to all Israeli ships and therefore blocking all ways to enter the Mediterranean sea, breaking an agreement reached on 1957, as a result of a previous war.

The Israeli cabinet met on 23 May and decided to wait 48 hours for the Tiran straits to be reopened before launching a pre-emptive strike, as well as sending Israeli Foreign Affairs Minister Abba Eban to Washington to meet with President Johnson. The US administration, which was Israel’s ally, insisted that Israel allow more time for a diplomatic solution to be reached, and warned Israel not to attack. A similar message was received in Israel from the Soviets through Premier Alexey Kosygin (the Soviet Union had interest in Egypt and a war was not convenient), and the Israeli cabinet decided on 28 May to wait an additional 2 weeks before taking further action.

In the mid-time, Egyptian president Nasser in his speech to Arab trade unionists on 26 May, announced: "If Israel embarks on an aggression against Syria or Egypt, the battle will be a general one... and our basic objective will be to destroy Israel." Four days later, Nasser proclaimed: "The armies of Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon are poised on the borders of Israel ... to face the challenge, while standing behind us are the armies of Iraq, Algeria, Kuwait, Sudan …and the whole Arab nation. While he was speaking, these nations began mobilizing their armed forces to join Egypt, Syria and Jordan.

The war started on June 5th, 1967 with the “pre-emptive” air-strike by the Israelis on Egyptian air bases across the Sinai Peninsula. Other air-strikes were launched on other minor air-bases deep in Egypt territory and Jordan.

Closely watching these events, The United States and the Soviet Union were ready to jump to support their allies if needed…

But that is another scenario…

probed1969 I had a feeling this is what you were working on. It should provide a good basis for a scenario.

Not bad. I want to play it again before rating it and I don't generally like scenarios with tons of troops, but I liked this.

I consider myself a middle level player and I didn't have too much trouble with it, so a good player will probably beat it easily. total time was about 12 1/2 minutes, but I'm slow and cautious.

One suggestion. Go back and check your spelling. Two I remember are Tel Aviv and Syrians. There are a couple more I think.

Thanks. Yes I think the scenario would be easy for good players, so I am thinking of lowering the number of troops for the human player or set the AI players to the tough or tougher skill level in order for the game to last a little longer.

jedielffencer93 amazing scenario! my dad's best friend fought in this war as an Egyptian heavy munitions man, i sent the scenario to him and he said it was pretty realistic
probed1969 If you're going to change it, I'll wait to rate it. Let me know when you're finished with it.

What size map did you use? I know Israel is small but with the Sinai and Golan heights included there should be some space between the combatants I think.

Thank you all for your comments.

The map size is "Huge".

The "Six Day War" resulted in the occupation of the Golan Heights (still occupied today), the occupation of the Sinai Peninsula (but returned to Egypt some years later in exchange for the formal "recognition" of Israel as a soverign State), as well as the capture of half Jerusalem, which before the war was occupied by Jordan.

Several other wars were fought after the Six day war, which resulted in the actual borders we see today (I did the research in the internet about two weeks ago. Before that I knew nothing about this war)

Please rate. The scenario is finished.

Regards,

Plays pretty well. A little more room to manuever would be good.

Balance: 4
Just a little too many troops on the friendly side for me. Balance is hard to achieve because of different player's abilities.

Creativity: 5
I think this is a first for this area.

Map Design: 4
Pretty good. It didn't seem huge while I was playing it. =) The map was laid out similar to the actual area.

Good. Your last comment about what happened after would've been better if you'd made it with the original upload.

Additional Comments:
Good work. This scenario really shows your improvement over the last few weeks. When I first saw the layout of the map and the number of troops I didn't think I'd like it, but I was pleasantly surprised. There are enough fronts to keep it from being a free for all.
probed1969 I checked the map size. According to the map coordinates it's a "small" map. It's 240X240. Huge is 360X360. I knew I felt cramped.

Thanks. I checked the map size and it is set to "small" just like you said, but everytime I change it to "Huge" and save it, the next time I open the editor it is back to "small". I dont know why.

If you have any idea how to fix it I would appreciate it, in the midtime I will try to figure out whats happening.

Regards,
probed1969 The editor defaults to small when it first opens. So if you're starting there with your map, that's why.

When you first start a map, decide how big you think you want it to be. Click the map button, then in the drop down boxes select the map type, size and number of nations, (mimimum 1). Click create map. NOW start working on your map. You can remove that nation's city and units, all resources, change nation and leader names, etc. Then when you save it, it WILL save as that size map.

eazyhasaids Over all it was a pretty good scenario. But i have one question, during the game Jordan attacked Syria I don't know if that is a mistake but just wanted to point that out.
