  1. Epic Mirages! Often these companies go down one scale for fixed-wing aircraft. So for a 15mm / 1:100 game like Team Yankee, are these 10mm / 1:144?

    I think these were the same GENERAL type of aircraft that were fighting the British down in the Falklands (Argentinians were using Mirage III / Dagger Vs ... These might me Mirage 2000s? Not sure).

As the title suggests it's about U-boats. Long story short, you pick a U-boat type and conduct patrols during which you sink allied shipping, sometimes lay mines or drop off an Abwehr agent. You can get promoted, your crew may become better or you can even earn a newer type of U-boat. Of course, as the war progresses it's really hard to stay alive when detected by escort ships.

This time I am going to play the basic rules. Without the more historically accurate optional rules.  So, let's get started. For the game I chose to begin with a Type VIIA U-Boat. Only 10 of these type were produced and 2 survived the war. The crew status is trained meaning no bonus or negative values apply with different rolls. My starting rank is Kapitänleutnant which allows me to choose a specific patrol assignment if I ro…
