Re: Jutland

The recent Jutland refight at HMS Flying Fox in Bristol was played out using AoD. Everyone seemed to have a fun time playing.

Re: scenario: HMAS Sydney vs HSK Komoran

You are aware that the RAN has thoroughly surveyed the wreck and that DSTO conducted a very thorough investigation, reported in 2009, into the technical circumstances of the sinking?

Firing on the ship as it presents its broadside results in a significantly bigger...
