hmmm. ever played Dangerous waters ?

Does a (fairly in my 0% experience opinion) good job of simulating warfare between russian and american naval platforms, with a good sim of an american ASW ship.

Would be a good battle between you two blokes - maybe a session next meet?

Two computers, two different rooms some beers and a few wagers.. My money's on the ASW !

Agreed if you're just talking about the ASW ship. However, equip said unit with an ASW helicopter (standard practice - ideally a Merlin) and the odds change considerably.....

There's a lot more to this than meets the eye but I had better not go any further (if I told you I'd have to kill you). Nothing's easy but everything's possible.....

Now, where's my glass-bottomed bucket?

Indeed he has but I've had a lot of 'seeking' training. Banter aside, the stuff they do in the 'tubes' is pretty bloody impressive.
