Re: Data cards

Not official, but here are the index cards I made for myself to play the River Plate and Bismarck scenarios:

Re: Tirpitz

Fearsome indeed! Now all you need to do is build a fjord to hide it in . . . :wink:

Seriously, looks good.

Re: Flights = how many?

Heh, no, not frustration :) .

The only frustration I'm finding is that the original VaS ships were obviously all done to a formula, but the later ships in S&P drifted away from this.

Thanks for the offer on the stats, I think I'm good at the moment.

Re: Flights = how many?

Ahh, fudge. I had a long reply written to this, but it disappeared when I pressed submit.

Never mind, good luck with v2, although reading State of the Mongoose, I do wonder if it'll ever see the light of day.

I'll continue to 'correct' ships for v1 to the formulas I've worked out.

Re: Flights = how many?

I have quite a list of ships if your interested at; (believe this is the correct address, if you have any trouble let me know.)

Re: Flights = how many?

Aye, thanks for that Matt. I'd worked it out to be 6/flight for bombers (i.e. Swordfish or Dauntless), and was coming up with a figure between 4 and 6 for fighters. Not helped by carriers not always sailing with their full complement of aircraft . . . I'm using the original Victory at Sea rules, btw...

Flights = how many?

Howdo all, Recently re-discovered Victory At Sea, and having some fun. But, being a wargamer, I immediately want ships that aren't in the book. Managed to work out most of the stats, but struggling with the aircraft load for a carrier. So, how many aircraft in real-life equal a flight in V@S? Thanks...

Sadly, I feel that I'm being lied to, and have made my decision to purchase or not accordingly.

YMMV.

Ha, an update. When I originally queried this, the book was listed at $17.47, with no discount. So, I emailed DriveThruRPG about this, asking if it was intentional that the original Battlefield Evolution was not being included in the discount of all Mongoose products, or had just slipped through the...

Re: Low pricing at DriveThruRPG

Hi,

Just wondering why the original Battlefield Evolution is not at a reduced price at DriveThruRPG like all of the others?

Link

Edit: And why does my signature not showing up on this post? It does on the preview, but not when actually posted?

Thanks, Martyn

As I understand it, GW are scrapping bits orders completely. If it ain't a complete model (or bag of bases), you won't be able to buy it.

Well, it is for making any fleet not just tournaments. But it only contains official stats. Well, I for one am very grateful to you. An excellent resource. Though I've noticed a (very, very small) bug. Using the Fleet Designer, I get a '0' in the Special column against the Y Turret an a York-class ...

VaS scale is oft quoted as 'Unassigned but roughly 1000yds per inch'. That means a mile is 17", so think how big a table you need for the entire battle of Midway. Heh, almost :wink:. A mile is actually 1.76" at that scale. Even so, I think the fleets at Midway were at least 150 miles apart, so that...
