I want to try that game, but I am afraid it is too complex.

 

Or more precisely, I am afraid I have less time and patience for such wargames.

 

Is the learning curve quite hard, Dave?

If you do the tutorials, then you will see how its played and then you can handle it.  It is not easy but the its not very hard either. I had my footing after 2 hours.

Reminds me of that Harpoon game from the 90s.

 

Cool!

 

Its the spiritual successor of Harpoon. And its fun to play.

Seems reasonnable enough.

Well I made a managed to get jumped by the AAF and they have lost 40 aircraft. I have lost 6 Sea Harriers though. They AAF came at me with a huge strike package. I lost 4 SH in A2A combat and another 2 were shot down overland while pursuing Skyhawks.  I have to retask my GR.3's from LGB's to dummies because my SAS cannot get to the island without the helos being attacked by everything. So without them on the ground I cannot get any buddy lasing done. That turnaround will take 2 hours. One of my ships the Fort Grange took a massive hit by bombs from an A-4 and had major flooding. Its finally under control but slowed the TF down to 13 kts. It is finally back up to full power and we are moving at 20 kts. I retasked my remaining SH for A2A only. That cuts my strike package down from to only GR.3's (I have 10) but hopefully with quick turnaround I can back to back hit the airfields hard so I can send the SAS in. So far no surface contacts but I am expecting another air attack by the AAF any moment. I only have 2 SH airborne because of the last huge raid I put all assets airborne. Now they are on the deck getting re armed and re fueled.

Well I got the rearming done, and all the SH are A2A configured. I am going to send in the GR.3 with escort, then also send the SAS with SH escort.
