Well, for WW1 _WoW_, the ships would move only once per turn, where the planes move three times; which for the period is about accurate.
For WW2, the ships' move rates would essentially have to be "play a stall every turn"; otherwise, there'd have to be a mechanic for figuring out which turn to move them on.
And some models of the 2F1 had *two* Lewis guns and *0* Vickers....
True, but most had one of each. Heh, they even experimented with 4 lewis guns, both on the F1 and 2F1.
The reason was BTW to be able to shoot down bombers and airships at night. When you shoot a gun in front of you in darkness you get blinded, but the wing is between you and the lewis gun, or so does my books about it say at least. But the lewis did have limited ammo and the vickers was a good gun to have in regular dogfights. I am not sure if the SE5 had the 2 guns for the same reasons however, I miss that book in my windsock files collection.
Yes, WW2 ships are a different matter, at least the smaller faster one. A bombing Bismark scenario would be interesting there.
Which scale do you prefer for boats BTW? models or flat cardboard markers?
