Although the new War at Sea: Task Force expansion set includes 60 new French, Italian, Canadian, Dutch, German, Japanese, American and British units, many of them are "reprints."
Roughly half of the cruisers, submarines, destroyers, battleships and carriers are "sister ships" of units included in the base set (released last year). The figures are usually repaints of the same models, although they also include new skills or abilities that set them apart.
However, several entirely new classes of ships are introduced as well, including the Italian Zara and German Admiral Hipper heavy cruisers.
The Hipper will be an excellent addition to any German convoy raider force, because it rolls extra dice when attacking destroyers and auxiliary ships. She is well armed with 8 x 203mm and 12 x 105mm guns, and has good AA defense.
The Germans can also deploy the U-66, which is sure to supplant the U-510 as the submarine of choice for the Kriegsmarine. The U-66 has the same torpedo-attack values and benefits from the wolf-pack skill. However, it is also faster, has the ability to elude enemy destroyers, and only costs 1 additional point.
