Atlantic Fleet: Battle of the Denmark Strait
I splashed out on the full version of Atlantic Fleet this evening and have just re-fought the Battle of the Denmark Strait. This time the Royal Navy scored a total victory over the Kriegsmarine, with the Prinz Eugen battered into a burning wreck by HMS Hood, which managed to repair some heavy damage inflicted by the combined guns of German warships.
The Bismarck then received the full broadside firepower of HMS Prince of Wales and HMS Hood, losing her A and B Turrets, propulsion and steering. This meant she was pretty much dead in the water and a sitting duck for the British. I enjoyed this scenario a lot and will be playing some more over the next few days. Great game!
