Harpoon for Dummies

In response to ongoing pleas for player assistance, a Harpoon for Dummies channel has opened on YouTube to help Harpoon players navigate the complexities of the game and to deliver the best possible playing experience. These series of video tutorials will continue to be written as needed and as requested. Many thanks to Ian Bowes (a.k.a. Spelk), amongst others, for speaking up and specifically requesting such videos be made and for the kind assistance he provided in reviewing them.

Presently, videos are available to demonstrate:

1) Installation procedures for the PlayersDB and scenarios
2) Basic game functions through a comprehensive tutorial for H3
3) Thorough use of the scenario editor for H3
4) Thorough use of the scenario editor for ANW
5) A complete sample scenario session

Folks who have never played a Harpoon scenario can watch the complete Sierra Strike: The 1st Team scenario run from beginning to end:

Could you post a scenario play-through where you use the "missions" feature of the game? I noticed that you haven't used that feature in? any of your scenario tutorials yet (except for the tutorial of course). Thanks.

I find very difficult to play this scen from USA side, only 4 F-15s a pair of Orions and a DDG are quickly attacked and burned by lots of planes that seem to come from coastal Venezuela air bases.
I set the DDG to Puerto La Cruz and launch a P3 and then F-15s to attack enemy planes flying near my ship,but they are quickly shot down.
Any ideas ??
