Pre order only - Releasing June '21

The need to replace the merchant tonnage lost to enemy commerce raiding prompted the design of the Liberty-class ships. Simple and easy to build, these rather basic merchantmen were put together in large numbers and very quickly – which was exactly what was needed. The first was launched in 1941. The fastest construction of a Liberty-class ship (done as a public relations exercise) was four days, most took rather longer. However, their simplicity and ease of production, coupled with the fact they could be built in many locations to a standard design, meant that these workhorse vessels entered service at an impressive rate. At 11 knots the Liberty ships were not fast, and they were certainly not pretty. However, they were there when the job needed doing.

Now available separately from the Merchant Convoy boxed set players can build larger convoys to enhance their games of Victory at Sea. Pack contains three Liberty Ships.
