Post subject: Activating units  Reply with quote   (Liked by:0)  Like this post
Hello, I was wondering if when you choose to use a unit in the surface attack phase, do you have to use all of the attacks at that time? For example, can I make a main battery attack from one ship, then make second ship's gunnery attacks then come back and use the first ship's secondary battery attack? Thanks!

As long as you remember that the "effects" of all your attacks in a phase happen simultaneously, you can pick the sequencing of your attacks however you want.

(It's a key tactic!)

Some people will use markers to mark which ship has fired which guns to help both people keep track, especially in larger fights.

Also remember that you don't have to fire your weapons in any particular order as well.  So a battleship can use it's seconds and tertiaries before it's mains, destroyers and cruisers can fire torps before guns

One additional item that you need to make sure to remember is that if you use ASW or Smoke, that unit can't fire any other weapons.  So if your destroyer shot off a torp, it can no longer utilize smoke or ASW.

This is what I sometimes forget and it comes back to bite me.

Timing of individual attacks is especially important if you'tr playing the French with Excellent Spotting.

True, as well as smoker builds, most of which are Italian.
