WWI Naval Battle – Interception of the HSF

As a counterpart to a recent hypothetical battle where the German battlecruisers were sent into the channel to intercept the BEF transports, this scenario assumes the High Seas Fleet demonstrates in the North Sea to draw the Grand Fleet away from the channel. The GF intercepts the HSF as it moves south along the Danish coast toward the Jade.

Scale: 1/6000 miniatures, 500 yards/in ground scale.

Rules: Computer code in development.

Visibility 14,000 yards. Wind northwesterly at 12 knots. Seastate 2.

Status at the end of the game: BEF2-status

Damage output file: BEF2-output

Plots of ship movements:

first 40 minutes BEF2-plot-1to40

last 50 minutes BEF2-plot-40to90

total BEF2-plot

At the point where we stopped, both battle fleets had taken significant damage and it was expected that a lot more ships would soon be sunk.
