Evolution of Axis & Allies pieces – Take 2
Yes, that was a chronic flaw of Kriegsmarine capital ships and cruisers – but I think the reason they revised the Hipper sculpt to give it a cruiser stern was to prevent confusion. In A&A, most destroyers have transom sterns, which is useful identification feature.
Thanks for that info on the German capital ships & cruisers. I didn’t know they had problems with the stern. Construction flaws?
Funny about them putting these cruisers with the aft end chopped off in the game to represent that problem.
Regarding your post on AXIS & ALLIES 1942 2ND EDITION: in my '42 two ed. copy the USSR still has the artillery and transport as ‘same as US’… As far as I can tell the Soviet Baltic transport and the 152mm howitzer are new to the Europe 1940 two ed. or am I mistaken?
Regarding Nol’s post from April '13, I have both the '42 Second Edition and Europe '40 Second Edition and only the Europe '40 have the new 152mm Howitzer and Baltic Timber Ship for the USSR. In my copy of '42 Second Edition, the USSR are still using the US 105mm Howitzers and Liberty Ships. What do you think?
@knp7765 Awesome compendium!
