Do ya really need to shoot them little critters?

Screen shots aren't showing right now, but it'll be nice to have an armed trawler sailing about the estuaries of CFS 2. I guess during the dark days of 42, armed trawlers even ventured out to the high seas for convoy escort.

Even before; like at Dunquerke in '40

Thank you for your interest fellows.

Yes SdC, in the dark days of 40-42 the Royal Navy used over 500 trawlers, many "pressed into service" from private owners for anti sub, escort and minesweeping. The shortage of RN escort vessels, creating the destroyers for bases deal between GB and the USA, made these vessels ocean escort participants until late 1943 when sufficient modern escorts became abundant for the allies. Their design made them weatherly, allowing them to stay at sea when destroyers could not. The Kriegsmarine used over 200 for similar purposes. Heres a fine link:


I hope to provide a few more smaller vessels to enhance CFS2 European ports, and some fishing versions for near shore/ port enhancement.:running:
