Lines of Battle: Quatre Bras 1815. Brunswick hussar.

Tuesday 11th May: Battle of the River Plate

Three of us recreated this battle of 1939 where 3 British cruisers took on the German Pocket Battleship Graf Spee off the coast of Uruguay.

Roger took The Graf Spee, a powerful ship with six 11" (280mm) guns in 2 turrets. However her hull was fouled from her long time at sea, so she was slower than the British cruisers.

I commanded the Exeter, which was a heavy-cruiser-done-on-the-cheap. It had 3 turrets (2 fore and 1 aft), each with two 8" (200mm) guns.

Stephen commanded two light cruisers Ajax and Achilles. While their guns were small (6" = 150mm) they each had eight of them.

The British plan was simple - to close as fast as possible so as to nullify the Graf Spee's advantage in long range gunnery. We also planned to split up (as per the actual battle) to try and split the Graf Spee's attention.

Roger identified me as the main threat, since I had the best British ship, and opened fire at 22,000 yards. This was in range for me, so I replied. Stephen was still out of range, but avoiding attention.

While my firing was fairly ineffectual, the Graf Spee battered the Exeter. While it did not lose any guns, it was ravaged by constant fires that I struggled to control and engine/turbine hits that eventually had it dead in the water.

With 1 fire still raging on the now immobile Exeter and it down to its last hit point, Roger decided to change his attention to Stephen's light cruisers which by now had closed the range to some 15,000 yards and were opening fire. This was a mistake.

Roger was now moving away from the Exeter - which had put out its last fire but was at an angle where only its two front turrets could fire. In a few turns he would be out of its range and able to deal with the Light Cruisers. These were doing him some damage, but by this point the Ajax was a flaming mess and doomed.

Then the critical action happened: at extreme range the Exeter hit the Graf Spee, the shot destroyed the fuel plant and reduced the Graf Spee's speed to a third of what it was.

The Light Cruisers by now were at 5,000 yards range and were causing damage from their combined 16 guns firing. Graf Spee by contrast only had 2 secondary guns of equivalent size to reply. On the same turn, the Graf Spee finally succumbed and sank at the same time as the Ajax.

Game over - British victory. While the Exeter was a wreck, the Achilles was undamaged.

The game was quick - we played at least 30 turns - so about 3-4 hours of real time, in about 2 hours of play.

Rules are good - we think the critical hit table needs tweaking since there is only a 5% chance of a turret hit, but something like 30% for engines (speed).

So this week's topic is seafaring.

I love the sea. It can be the most quiet place on earth... or a wild
and dangerous beast that reminds us of the power of nature.

How do you feel about the sea and
what does it mean to you? Adventure? Maybe dread? Seasickness? Have
you traveled by ship or do you enjoy hobbies that require water or the
sea?
