Clash at Kaafjord: Operation Tungsten


In the Spring of 1944, the British were eager to strike into Norway, wanting to send capital ships close in order to get much needed supplies to the Soviet Union. One thing stood in their way: Tirpitz. The Tirpitz was moored in Kaafjord undergoing repairs at the time, and it was the greatest single maritime threat to the Allies at the time. The British were worried that by the time it was finished being serviced, it would lay waste to the supply ships they needed in the North and Arctic seas.

This setup aims to re-create Operation Tungsten, the attack on the Tirpitz by the Royal Navy, and what could have been a formidable defense by the Luftwaffe.
