Swordfish at Taranto
(solitaire, tactical, WWII)
Swordfish at Taranto Zip Edition pits you (playing the British) and your raiding force of Fairey Swordfish bombers against the Italian ships and harbor defense of Taranto, November 1940.
In this solitaire "experience game", you must plan the raid, brief the pilots, equip the planes, and then sit back and watch the drama unfold. Counters represent individual planes (and pilots), targets are individual Italian warships at anchor.
The actual raid saw twenty Swordfish deliver a crippling blow to the Italian Mediterranean fleet; can you do as well, or better?
