Can't believe after all this time that next week I will have the game at long last
For the first time in almost 20 years I will be raising steam and sailing HMS Warspite at the head of the Home/Mediterranean/Eastern or Pacific Fleets. Suck on my 15-incher Adolf/Tojo/Il Duce!
Banzai! The Imperial Navy just bombed an unimportant British battleship and send it to the bottom of the South China Sea... .
What HMS Iron Duke? Yes, I used her as a decoy to lure Yamato, Musashi and co into the Indian Ocean, whereupon HMS Warspite unleashed her fearsome load, and reduced the IJN ships to a burning mass of twisted metal.
Back home after the second Impulse in time for tea and medals
On her way home, Japanese pilots, returning to the Zuikaku from patrolling the seas around Columbo, found the ship when it was running away from an engagement with the all powerful battleships of the IJN (interception succeeded when the ship aborted and the CW rolled 10 on it's search roll ). A second wave of attacks launched from the Zuikaku, left HMS Warspite in a mass of flames. Later that day, a Japanese submarine fired a number of torpedoes at the burning wreckage, which then dissappeared to the bottom of the sea.
