Cruel Seas: Italian Regia Marina Convoy Bundle
An Italian Regia Marina themed Convoy Bundle containing the following 5 ships:
- x1 Italian Gabbiano-class Corvette (785112012)
- x3 Convoy Freighters (785100003)
- x1 Merchant Tanker (785119003)
All nations relied on the successful shipment of goods, whether those goods be munitions or simply food and clothing. Such vessels would band together in convoys for mutual protection, often accompanied by escorts. Most freighters were practically defenceless against attacking warships but the presence of an accompanying warship was enough to ward off most would-be attackers of convoys.
A great number of the convoy battles of World War 2 took place in the Atlantic Ocean, where wolfpacks of German U-Boats lay in wait beneath the waves however this Convoy Bundle would not look out of place in the Mediterranean.
