View Full Version : Mini Samar

10-30-2004, 10:20 PM
Though I'd share some screens in my Battle Off Samar recreation. Three CVEs, 2 Fletchers, 1 Generic IJN BB, 1 Indiannapolis CA set as IJN, and 3 various IJN DDs. Airpower included so far; 8 X TBFs and 4 X FM2s.

Taffy 3 just before the action starts. These CVEs have some rather compact deck space - only two TBfs per, or in the case of my mount, perhaps 6 FM2s.

The opening moments of battle. The IJN BB and CA have opened fire - note the shell splashes well astern. One of the gun crews on my flattop is returning the favor (perhaps my fleets are too close).

One Fletcher has peeled away from the task group, already hammering away at the incoming Japanese ships.

That is some good shots.

Thanks. Just tried it out, and I'm guessing rattled nerves is not modeled in the game. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif Us 'Taffy-types' are getting swatted out of the sky like flies, even with the IJN gunners setting to novice.

A few more screens. This is proving to be more fun than I thought.


This one is my favorite. My leader was hit while making his run over the DDs. Out of control, his FM2 just happened to tumble just aft of the forward superstructure of the Generic BB.
It was taken perhaps two secs before I shedded a wing to enemy AA. That hit was the only one I saw scored.

*groan* you beat me to it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

But on second thought, the Battle of Leyte gulf lasted several days, so maybe I can make missions off the other battles and maybe one day, we can all string your battles and my battles so that we can have a mini-Battle of Leyte Gulf campaign eh? What do you think? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
