Cruel Seas: Small Sampans
A player who fields ‘tiny boats’ in Cruel Seas will find their use most entertaining and will undoubtedly make his opposing commander very worried indeed! The great strength of such vessels is their size but this makes them equally vulnerable to all manner of incoming fire.
As the Japanese merchant marine became ever more depleted the humble Sampan became the main fallback for the Imperial Japanese war machine, delivering vital cargoes of men and equipment. Small sampans must be taken in squadrons of three – meaning only one dice is used for all three.
Contains 6 metal boats and game cards.
Models supplied unassembled and unpainted
