General Victory Belles Questions Thread

Recommended Posts

Imptrooper;

 

Well, you don't have to worry *too* much about losing your Belles- they can't be sunk in just one engagement (exception: Death Date), so you can make mistakes as long as you withdraw!

 

I would think you'll only see '39 Belles, although you never know. :)

 

This leads me to another question, and if it has been answered already I must have missed it. What about the Belle's that have no Death Date? Like, say, The Texas (BAM another mention) Or The Lexington CV-16 or any number of Museum ships around the world?

If they don't have a death date, nothing happens to them.

 

 

So, the tiny planes that the Belles carry. Are they piloted by tiny somethings or are they just an extension of the Belle herself?

Fair enough, but what about Ships like The Enterprise and Warspite? They were scrapped out over years.

Likely the date they were striken from the naval rolls. In general that's after the war and the framework of the game methinks.

What DYM wrote. However, for things like peacetime scrapping and so on, the Belle doesn't have a Death Date. It's only by combat that she can get one (or more than one, in certain cases!)

Extensions only, although they can fly a fair distance from the Belle- further than she can leave the ship, in many cases.

 

So no having secret liaisons with a regular girl on shore then.

At least not if your Belle is a Carrier with a jealous streak. ;)

Take note captains! Make sure to incorporate this in your strategy should you chose to... play the field :P

The only bad thing about being a Arpeggio-style "mental model": No off-shore excursions for Belles unless it's right on the shore. What's their "range" anyway?

10m or so last I heard, or 10 units of measure at any rate... not very far (as of 1939, so maybe more in the future).

Wow, that's not far at all. I was expecting 200-500 feet (60-150m) at least on the water in case they have to somehow leave the ship to fight on the water (and they would have to move around a lot), if it comes down to it.

10 yards which is a little over 9 meters, for the metricly inclined.

Yep, about 10m in '39...

So further later on? So we will be able to take them on dates to the museum or a restaurant (or a prize fighting match)?

How oddly specific W99 ;)

 

What? Going to a prize fight and not expecting a Bulldog to be there is nonsense. Especially not expecting a Bulldog to participate
