Are there any official, or unofficial rules updates, and/or stats for the Shipwreck rules, by Vandering Publications, for Asian vessels, e.g. those primarily of the Japanese Military Self Defense Forces (JMSDF), the Peoples Liberation Army Navy (PLAN), and others in the region, e.g. Vietnam, Taiwan, Australia, the Koreas, India, Pakistan, etc., etc.?

I'm interested in playing out some battles and/or skirmishes between the above countries, but don't relish creating stats for them to do so from scratch.

Clearly, there have been a lot of naval upgrades and changes since the first set of rules were written as well, so I'm interested in adjusting for those too.

There used to be a Yahoo Group for discussion and sharing. Not sure if there is a Groups.Io organization for that now, or not, so would appreciate any intel people can share on that.

Also, anyone know which subs, and how many are included in the Submarines supplement I saw for Shipwreck listed on Wargame Vault?

I wasn't aware of that, and it looks interesing.

There were definitely stats…. in 2013 when I started playing Shipwreck frequently (for a couple of years, until 2015-16 I think), I had a PLAN fleet, and there was a PRC Main file with all of those vessels (up to that point). I do now know where these files are found now.

Thank you for the replies and the link.

I was on there looking, and thought I'd covered pretty much all of the relevant offerings, but obviously missed these.

I really appreciate it.
