My latest project in my effort to document all my past scenarios.

One of my favourite battles! Far more equal than Tsushima, as the Russian Pacific Fleet was in good shape, and quite competitive in gunnery; if their shells had been better, Mikasa and Asahi might well have bought the farm. I hadn't realized that Adm. Dewa's armoured cruisers had attempted to engage Vitgeft's battleships. A gutsy move that also could've paid dividends, if proper coordination could've been accomplished. One more note on the battle: I believe the Russians were under the impression that the Japanese battleship Yashima was still afloat and in Togo's line; had they known of their 6-to-4 superiority, they may well have been more willing to go toe to toe.

Thanks for sharing.

Great aar, as usual! What a pity for the Russians your son was not present on that day, things might have turned out a bit differently.
August 10 is one of my favorite battles as well, with a little bit better luck the Russians might well have made it past the Japanese. But, you never know…

GREAT-looking game and pics, afilter! I'm assuming that the markers are Litko's? They certainly "pop-out" the action of the scenario!

Thank you very much for sharing! thumbs up

Thanks guys….yes the markers are Litko. I have most of the readily availble ones as well as a few customs for my Naval Thunder games.
