Little bit of a side-project: Modern US CVN Battlegroup 1/3000

This is one I have been thinking about doing for a while (as well as the 1980 RN Falklands Campaign), the advantage being this is less than a dozen ships all told (see Wikipedia detail):


Order of Battle:

  • CVN
  • 1-2 Guided Missile Cruiser
  • 2-3 Guided Missile Destroyers
  • 1-2 Attack (688) Submarines
  • Specialist Ammo Supply and Oiler Support Ship

Possible rules for this are the traditional (pro-US) Harpoon or the more recent ShipWreck. Topical campaigns could include US tension with the Chinese over the Spratly chain of islands in the South China Sea.

Nice to see that I am NOT maintaining focus!

Go for it, Geordie! I know all about wandering concentration levels coupled with no time resources...

A short focused distraction that could model real world events

See if you can find an old copy of SPIs Sixth Fleet (not the newer and easier to find rules). That game is a gem, using double blind movement...and could easily port over to modern miniatures. 1/6000 is the best scale for that!
