From: Milan - Italy
I Know that I'm playing vs AI, and it is another story than vs human, but I 'd like to give a medal for a real bravery act to Mr Berardi, Captain of PT 27, who was able to sink a IJN BB with a simple PT
Sure it was night with a very low moon (3% of moonlight) and BB Fuso had been previously attacked by planes and was on fire, so in full vision (I do not how it acts, but I think that in a surface combat, these features have an impact)
In any case A Navy Cross for most honourable Berardi
It is a pleasure to serve in the same army with such a gallant officer
