Between 1923 and 1945, the German Navy built a series of small destroyers called “torpedo boats.” They served as escorts, but often sailed with the cruisers and battleships in the role of fleet destroyers. A number of them appear in Arctic Convoy and Bismarck, on the small square pieces we use for minor warships.
Torpedo Boats is a set of 70 “long” pieces portraying every German torpedo boat that saw service in World War II, plus some that weren’t completed like the big 1941 Type boats. The pieces themselves are made with the same scorchless technology as our ultra-thick ones, but are about the same thickness as The Kaiser’s Navy (to make them blend in easier with Arctic Convoy and Bismarck) with no scorching or ash residue. All seven classes of torpedo boats built by the Germans are represented.
These are larger alternative pieces, to replace the smaller pieces supplied with the game.
