AAR - Prussian Empire versus the Federated States of America and Eclipse Company Mercenaries

"...after weeks of stalemate around the Davis Strait, the Federated States of America made their move and began the attack on Holsteinsborg. The 27th Bomb Group were to lead a preliminary bombing run that would cripple the outer defences of the port, defences where the Americans had been stalled some months previously at the outset of the conflict. 

With the American fleet already stretched across innumerable theatres and oceans, their numbers were bolstered with mercenaries from the Honourable Eclipse Company. This contract would be their undoing, however, as spies within the Company quickly revealed for any pertinent information on fleet movements, dispositions and weaknesses to their Prussian paymasters. 

As the 27th Bomb Group made their way under the cover of darkness, a small Prussian fleet was hurriedly assembled and sallied forth - at dawn the two fleets spotted one another and battle was joined...

AAR - Federated States of America versus Prussian Empire

"After many weeks of research, the Prussian scientists in Greenland finally cracked the secrets recovered from the Argo - schematics for the next generation of FSA warships and a powerful Submarine - a vessel that would change the war in the Atlantic forever. 

This information had to be delivered to the Prussian High Command as soon as possible, but radio transmission was deemed too unreliable and liable to interception - as it stood, the FSA were still unaware the Prussian Empire had recovered the lost plans. A small fleet was prepared which would launch for Iceland and avoid the blockade fleet massing around western Greenland. 

Unfortunately for them, the FSA had moved faster than anticipated. The very ships to discover the blockade were those who needed to break it the most...
