Cruel Seas Royal Navy Fairmile D MTB 624

I had the Royal Navy flotilla from the starter set already increased with the Flower Class Corvette, but I was looking for a mid-sized ship, that could be used in smaller to medium battles and went for the Fairmile D MTB.

The Fairmile D Motor Torpedo Boat is a british MTB, that was built by Fairmile Marine. A Fairmile is bigger than the earlier MTB/MGB (Motor Gun Boats), for example the Vosper or PT Boat, but slower in speed. They were named Dog Boats, and were designed to combat the more advantaged E-boats by the German Kriegsmarine.

Cruel Seas British Flower Class Corvette

In extension to the fleets of the Strike Fast! Strike Hard! starter kit I chose a large vessel for both sides. For the British that was the British Flower Class Corvette.

Among the large British ships would have been a Landing Craft Gun or the armed trawler. The landing craft looked more like something for the pacific and the armed trawler was a bit too close to the merchant tanker, and this is a Corvette, a Corvette! So the choice was pretty clear.

Cruel Seas – Strike Fast, Strike Hard! starter box

With Cruel Seas Warlord Games expands the world war 2 brand of Bolt Action, after Blood Red Skies and areal combat, into naval wargaming. We will look into the Strike Fast, Strike Hard! starter set for Cruel Seas today, that gets you started with the 1:300 scale naval combat game.

The Strike Fast, Strike Hard! boxed set is one of two ways to get into Cruel Seas. You can either buy the 50 GBP boxed set, or go for the stand alone rulebook at 20 GBP. Similar to what we know from the Bolt Action range, you receive a special miniature when you order either the boxed set or rulebook directly from Warlord Games. In this case, a very fitting "Das Boot" miniature, the top part of the iconic U96, the german Type VII C submarine.
