Eh... close enough.

Anyway, looking forward to this game far too much, considering I don't have a gaming group... :?

I have another question. Are the Royal Navy's Revenge-class battleships in the book? Some of them served in the Second World War...

IIRC the R Class didn't make it into the final cut, but do make an appearance via the Russian list. (for a bouns point - can anyone say why? :) )

"Lent" is the better way of putting it as their share of the Italian fleet could not be given to them.

Also the Battle of Tushima was won primarliy by the big guns at range - hence the switch to all-big-gun battleships.
Are you sure? :) (cue "big gun vs. hail of fire" debate!)
No. I'm no expert, I just recently read a couple of books that covered the battle (not in huge detail).

1st post... and 1st correct answer :wink:

Arkhangelsk aka Royal Sovereign...

However she didnt venture out with the Russian Northern Fleet until the end of hostilities in Europe... She was stuck in the Kola Inlet for the war, right from her commissioning date in 29 Aug 44...
