A quick after-action report of an encounter between the USS Peterson DD969 ( Spruance-class ) and two ( 2 ) OSA fast missile boats off the coast of N. Korea.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
During a freedom of the seas exercise the USS Peterson was part of a picket screen for her carrier group detected two ( 2 ) contacts closing fast. Her operating orders were to challenge by radio any approaching contacts and receiving no reply immediately went to general quarters.

Having lost their element of suprise, the Michurinsky & Balykley ( Osa-class ) each launched 2 SSN-2 SSM at the Peterson for their first wave of missile attack.

Peterson, was able to down 2 of the approaching missiles with her area defensive AA fire at range 2. As the remaining 2 missiles continued to approach, she opened fire again with her AA at range 1 and downed the remaining first wave of missiles.

Both Osa's then launched a second wave of 4 SSN-2 at Peterson. At range 2, her area defense AA fire was able to bring down 1 missile closing on her. Further AA fire and jamming failed and her close defense weapon was engaged and able to eliminate 1 more SSN-2 leaving 2 SSN-2 to impact the ship.

The first missile stuck knocking out one of Peterson's sytems, and the other missile hit resulted in a flotation casualty. Peterson's damage control was able to maintain her fighting capability and she returned fire with 4 harpoon SSM missiles with 2 allocated to each of her attackers.

Wave 1 consisting of 2 harpoons were allocated to the Michulinsky which downed 1 at range 1 with AA fire, and the second was eliminated by jamming.

Wave 2 harpoon missiles targeting the Balykley were neutralized by jamming.

The results of Peterson's self-defense attempt were 0 hits registered to either Osa which both reversed course and returned to North Korean waters undamaged.

The Peterson was ordered to make for Osaka, Japan for evaluation / repairs.

Shows the flaws in the game system. An Osa-class has no capability at all to jam a Harpoon, and as the Israelis proved, SS-N-2 is easily defeated by jamming, even in the early seventies.

EDIT: And what happened to the Spruance's Standard launcher, or even her 5" gun?

Per the game rules for ship capabilities the Osa can conduct missile jamming. Again, per game rules, the Spruance-class vessel could only use the harpoon ordnance and not use alternate missile ammunition such as the Standard missile.

During the engagement, per game rules, the Peterson lost half her offensive missiles once it took damage from the Osa attack and was unable to conduct a full missile saturation counter-attack strategy and divided its remaining ordnance between both attackers with two ( 2 ) harpoons allocated to each.

Per reality as well. Except for the four Kidd-class ships, the Spruances did not carry the standard missile.

Hmmmm, thanks for the info on the Kidd-class warship however, that ship class is not available for use in the game.

I think the game came out before they were commissioned into the USN. (They had originally been built for Iran.)
