I know you've been waiting for this :-), game 3 of our 1941 Atlantic Naval Campaign.

An interesting match up this week, a David and Goliath contest as a Danish armed merchant takes on two, yes two German Battlecruisers. All that and it's based on a real event.

A nice little evening game and something a bit different, part 4 coming soon.

Thanks for posting that. An interesting and unusual scenario. Balance is not everything!

Your record is not an index? Oh, that's very bad, 4th C.

The daemon is out to get you*. It's runtime, mate! I suggest you pack up all your micro-armor and mail it to me right away for safe keeping. Just in case, you know. Just in case …

*Note: Actually it just belched at you a little. Maybe not out to get you per se ….

I was concerned that maybe I had been singled out for special treatment.

Actually I've gotten the same error message about 4 times over the past 2 days.

Doesn't seem to stop me from posting or reading. So I just carry on. So far.

But if you observe that I stop posting in the next few days, put your tinfoil hat on right away. Can't be too careful.

4th Cuirass they are named both as Battlecruiser and Battleship, BC speed and guns with BB armour. Hard as nails as we have found out during the course of this Campaign.

"Weren't Scharnhorst and Gneisenau called battleships by zer Germans?"

Nein! Schlachtkreuzer

Actually, I have not found many sources in German that describe either of the sisters as Schlactkreuzer (battlecruiser). Rather, they seem to be consistently labeled as Schlachtschiffe (battleship) … nicht war?

For example:

Die Scharnhorst war das Typschiff der nach ihr benannten Klasse von zwei Schiffen. Ihr Schwesterschiff war die Gneisenau. Ihr auffälligstes Merkmal war die für Schlachtschiffe schwache Hauptbewaffnung mit einem Kaliber von nur 28 cm.

The Scharnhorst was the lead ship of the named class of two ships. Her sister ship was the Gneisenau. Their most striking feature was the weak main armament for battleships with a caliber of only 28 cm.

From: link

Or:

Am 26. Dezember 1943 griff das deutsche Schlachtschiff „Scharnhorst" einen Konvoi im Eismeer an.

On December 26, 1943 the German battleship "Scharnhorst" attacked a convoy in the Arctic Ocean.

From: link

Neither is a primary source. I don't have much on naval matters. But current German language histories seem to be pretty consistent in labeling the sisters as battelships.
