Jean Bart vs Roma

Post by kevin32422 »

I think this would be a interesting matchup since both countries didn't seem to use their navies to its fullest ability what is the plan of attack if you commanded either ship?

It would still depend on the precise circumstances an engagement starts. Also there is an extremely narrow time frame of just two weeks inside June 1940.

My gut feeling is that the French ship would have the edge.

No, probably pointless with an artificial "penalty" like that. Assume shells with no defects or gas pockets.

I'm not sure about the fighting capabilities of either side, they would probably fire a few shots at one another and disengage!
