Warlord Games: Cruel Seas Neuheiten
Warlord veröffentlicht neue Schiffe für Cruel Seas.
R-23 R-Boat – 30,00 GBP
The R-boat, also known as Räumboote in German, was a class of naval vessels originally designed as minesweepers, but their role evolved under fire. Prized for their manoeuvrability and shallow draft, they were perfect for escorting coastal traffic and patrolling the extensive coastlines of the new German Reich.
This pack includes two R-23 R-Boats to add to your Kriegsmarine fleet.
R-BOATS – SPECIFIC RULES
R-boats have a movable propeller that means they can make 1 turn before they make any move. This is in addition to the standard movement rules.
Fairmile D MTB 624 – 30,00 GBP
The Fairmile company produced a mass production vessel, which had good seagoing qualities and was used also for mine laying. The Fairmile B followed this, 398 being built in the UK, and 180 more in the Commonwealth, an impressive total. They showed their suitability by one flotilla even crossing the Atlantic to Trinidad via Iceland!
Their most famous boat was probably the Fairmile D or ‘Dog’ boat, a dual MTB/MGB, possibly the best-armed vessel size for its size in the world.
This pack includes 2 of this Fairmile D model to bolster your Royal Navy coastal fleet.
This model represents motor torpedo boat 624 in its final configuration, including an automatic 6pdr on the foredeck, the standard two HMG tubs on either side of the bridge, a Holman projector amidships and a twin-20mm cannon on the stern.
Originally launched as a motor gunboat (MGB) in 1942, 624 was built by the Dorset Yacht Company.
Alongside the two torpedoes and a regular crew, this gives you 170 points of the hard-hitting gunboat. Keep an eye on the newsletter for more information on this prowling hunter-killer.
