This year's scenario will be "Force de Raid, Norway or The Twins Meet The Twins!"

 

Rules will be GQ2.  Much as I love the sophistication and realism of GQ3, the 2 version (in my experience) moves quicker and we'd really like to actually finish the game for a change!

 

Spring, 1940.  Desperate situations demand desperate measures, and the situation of General Dietl's Gebirgsjaeger division at Narvik in the aftermath of the two naval battles in the fjord is desperate.  Reinforcement and logistic support is imperative.  Regaining his nerve, der Fuehrer characteristically decided on a bold gamble.  Four comparatively fast Atlantic liners are withdrawn from layup, packed with troops, weapons, supplies and are sent off at full speed for Narvik, covered by Admiral Wilhelm Marschall and the available units of the Fleet.

 

As it happens, the Marine Nationale despatches Admiral Gensoul with the Force de Raid to Norweigan waters in support of the Royal Navy operations in the campaign.  A submarine sighting sends him charging in to intercept and destroy the reinforcement.  The Force de Raid intercepts and the fight is on!

 

German Forces:

 

Liner group.  4 liners, approx 22 knot.  Lightly armed with 4.1" guns and some AA.

                     4 F class escort ships as ASW/AA escort.

 

Battleship Group:  GNEISENAU (F), SCHARNHORST

Cruiser Group:      ADMIRAL HIPPER, BLUECHER, KOELN

Destroyer Group:  4 MAASZ class destroyers.

 

French Forces:

Battleship Group:  STRASBOURG (F), DUNKERQUE

Cruiser Group:      ALGERIE, DUQUESNE, JEANNE D'VIENNE

Destroyer Group:  4 BISSON class super-destroyers.
