Steam & Iron: The Russo-Japanese War
Command the first fleets of steel battleships ever to clash in the battles of the Russo-Japanese War. If you have a soft heart for pre-dreadnought battleships or armored cruisers, or just want to simulate the naval side of this important but mostly forgotten war this is the game for you. Bombard the forts of Port Arthur, sneak blockships in by night or sortie the mighty but doomed Russian Pacific Fleet. Sneak around enemy coasts to lay a minefield or try to bring on a major fleet action. Meet the enemy in the Far East, or try out the random battles covering the Mediterranean, Atlantic or North Sea. Make your own what if-scenarios.
