- COMMAND AT SEA -
Command at Sea (CaS)
is a World War II tactical naval rules system. It can be used to simulate almost every naval operation of World War II with accurate and consistent results. Victory depends as much on the tactics and planning of the players as on the ships and equipment under their command. CaS
uses the same format and terms as the other Admirality Trilogy
system emphasizes technical and historical accuracy woven into a streamlined, easy to follow rules structure that keeps the action fast-paced and fun. Much of the information used in CaS
was drawn from declassified international naval and government documents. Combat resolution is built around a single die roll philosophy that keeps the players focused on the battle and not on the mechanics of the rules.
Command at Sea
allows the player to experience the kind of decisions that a ship or battle group commander must make when he fights a sea battle during World War II. Victory depends on making the right decision at the right time. CaS is more than just a game, it is an accurate simulation. The models that make up the heart of CaS are based on historical technical data and extensive operational analysis. Tactics that were successful in actual battles will also work in CaS.
rules are used by 10 scenario books, each of which covers a specific theatre or period World War 2 the war. The books contain not only the orders of battle and historical information about each scenario, but also the ship and system data needed to play them.
