    TFS 5.0 Leander and Leipzig class cruisers - First look WIP images

    WIP images of the Leander and Leipzig class light cruisers.

    Our upcoming desert war expansion will feature a number of new ship classes, including capital ships!

    The level of detail going into these ships is incredible, not just visually. They will feature a huge array of firepower of varying sizes and types, multiple damage areas and damage modelling, armour plating of various thickness. All designed to be as realistic, and difficult to attack and sink, as they were in reality.

    Players will also be able to set up sea battles, along with naval gun support of land based operations/missions.

    For those looking forward to attacking the these ships flying solo, and getting in close, will most likely result in your virtual death or taking a swim in the warm med waters. Their collective firepower is intense, terrifying and awesome to watch.

    Study real life tactics and employ them, if you want to get home.

    In the near future we will showcase these new ships in action. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy the screenshots of our Leander and Leipzig class Cruisers.

    Minenshootintootinbootin are bad enough, methinks I will give these dangerous floating iron things a wide berth...unless of course, someone has softened them up and they are powerless and defenseless, the way i prefer my victims

    nice pics Pattle

    Targets for torpedo bombers or perhaps the torpedo bombers are targets for the ships?

    Right 10 degrees rudder! Sound general quarters! Prepare to fire main batteries!


    Looks great, TFS. What happens when they fight each other??

    I really wish we had Swordfish to drop torpedoes on that Kriegsmarine vessel.

    Also, will those torpedo launchers on the deck be functional? Would be cool to see a cruiser or destroyer sailing alongside each other firing all guns and launcing torpedos would be even more awesome.

    When I was a kid, one of my first scale models was a HMS Ajax. Then I build a second one (as Achilles) and a Graf Spee and had major sea battles in the bathtub (never could get hold of an Exeter though).

    Ah, now I feel young again

    Very nice. It will be cool addition to have some substantial surface ships in Cliffs

    Of course, anything Kriegsmarine won't be relevant for the new map. I think we've seen Zara/Gorizia...are there other Regia Marina vessels in the pipeline as well?

    Italian Ships:

    - Spica Class Patrol/Torpedo/Destroyer Escort

    - San Giorgio Class Armoured Cruiser/Tobruk AAA defense vessel (pre WWI Armoured Cruiser used at Tobruk)

    - RM Gorizia, Zara Class Heavy Cruiser

    The Regia Marina didn't commit a lot of ships in the area of the map... as the British had made a mess of their Battleships at Taranto and their Cruisers at Cape Matapan.

    We included a heavy Cruiser just to give some options.

    The Royal Navy was very active off the coast of the map area, we have included two of the late WWI Battleships used in the Med as well as the Ajax which was very active, and also a Tribal Class Destroyer, these were very common.

    The Germans have two added ships, a Destroyer and a Light Cruiser just to give some options in the Channel Map for an Operation Seelowe. (although the Germans only used heavy ships in the Channel during the Operation Cereberus... which is outside the timeframe of the module. Will have to wait for TF 6.0 for that scenario)

    We have also added four new merchant ships.

    Excellent work chaps! Great to see some good old Naval firepower, especially with the remarkable Royal Navy
    Good to hear about the level of detail going into them, they sure deserve it! Great work, they are looking fantastic!

    Re: TFS 5.0 Leander and Leipzig class cruisers - First look WIP images

    I hope this isn't too OT but I wanted to give those interested a little heads up. I've found in the Great Battles sim that ship attacks ( any ship warship, freighter etc.,) with new torpedo mod is a quick way to commit suicide. Part of the problem in that "other" sim is that there is no way to "aim" the torpedo at where the ship will be when the torpedo reaches it.This means the fish must be dropped at low level & pretty darn close to the intended target.What's the old axiom? "If your enemy is within range of your guns , that means you are within reach of his!" Certainly true in this case since your exit is almost always very low mast heighth & very close to rock throwing distance from the ship.If you aren't shot down on approach you probably will be on exit to low to even parachute out...sigh.... These heavily armed warships yet to come will make the choice to make a torpedo attack very sobering, much like they probably were back in the day esp with a large slow aircraft like the Heinkle He-111
