Norway, 1940: A PQ-17 Expansion
Publisher/Brand: GMT Games
Product Code: GMT2104
It is Spring 1940, and both the British and the Germans have plans to invade neutral Norway. The British still have the French on their side, while the German Kriegsmarine will never be larger. Who will strike first?
Norway 1940 is a expansion for PQ-17 that adds all the British, French, Polish, and German naval and air units needed to re-fight this tense air-naval battle, including such seldom-seen ships and aircraft as the repair ship HMS Vindictive, German Type II U-boats, Blackburn Skuas and Rocs, and early Ju88 heavy fighters. Special rules reflect the unique conditions of the campaign, such as Scandinavian neutrality, Norwegian coastal defenses, faulty German torpedoes, shore bombardments, and Allied establishment of a forward naval base (historically in the Lofotens). Norway 1940 includes three operational scenarios highlighting key periods of the campaign.
This is not a stand-alone game. A copy of PQ-17 is required to play.
