Japanese Cruiser Type (Problem solved:it is the misprint-class from Guadalcanal)
My Set includes two different styles of a japanese cruiser
One seems to be the heavy cruiser Takao (1932)
But, i can`t identify the lower one?
post scriptum edit: why is this cruiser the same type like an american cruiser (USS Portland) ? I never noticed this issue
The cruiser below is a special camouflage ship for the american player. The ship shall look like a japanese ship (because of the color) but in effect it is an american one! It refers to a navy unit of the so called Misprint-Class.
The cruisers in A&A Guadalcanal (the game which inaugurated the cruiser unit) were accidentally manufactured in the wrong colours. The Japanese-design cruiser was green and the American-design cruiser was orange.
Excellent. I knew someone would know the answer; I had no idea.
Well done Dedo and Marc!
Yea that’s the misprint-class from Guadalcanal
Thank you for the information
