Do these have any use?

Germany needs to get his Swedish ore to the factories using convoys in the Baltic. The USSR ones have only use if you are getting units in minor ports which become out of supply if the optional rule "limited overseas supply" is on. You have to use a convoy to put those units in supply in that case.

That's why I choose it. Now AxelNL want me to use a "what if" Dutch battleship as an avatar... I don't think I will do that...

Those and the USN S Boats are the only ones wit worthwhile torpedoes.

The USN Fleet boats occasionally have a torp hit home.

..but, you're 100% correct!

Any other Dutchman around who I can send that beautifull Avatar of the "BB van Oranje"? I will stick with our famous sea-legend de Ruyter, who kicked plenty of behinds in his time. (Although no Japs).

This subject of Dutch Battleships interested me so I did a search and found...

Small country, big plans! Dutch (paper) Battleships and Battlecruisers

The links given on the Netherlands navy (class 1047) are very interesting.

In a full, longer WiF game (Global War, etc) do not forget the Caspian Sea for convoy placement. I usually put 1 there at the start and build an extra one there if and when I have a spare build point.
