Jutland 100th Anniversary – Windy Corner

For the 100th anniversary of the battle of Jutland, the positions of the fleets at about 6 pm were set up, and various options for the deployment of the Grand Fleet were discussed.

No formal game was attempted since it would have taken more time than was available, but the capital ships were run through the deployment with automated targeting while we talked. The light forces were mostly ignored, but several torpedo attacks occurred anyway due to the initial courses. Since the German fleet did not turn away, the damage was much greater than historically. The poor visibility, particularly toward the north and east, allowed several devastating torpedo attacks.

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

Computer code (described here).

Status at the end of the game: IO Windy

Damage output file: Windy output

Plot of ship movements: sk-plot-Windy
