Kaiser Karl VI is on course 90, speed 11 knots. She is leading Leopard and Panther towards the convoy.

Panther is on course 90, speed 11 knots. She has assumed position behind Leopard

Leopard’s is on course 90, speed 17 knots. She has overtaken Panther.

The cruisers have not been under fire in the last 5 minutes. We can see the Dandalo moving on course 45 at a speed of 15 knots. She has turned away from us.

Our Battle Divisions are on course 112 at 17 knots except for Ezherhog Karl which is making 10 knots.
Ezherhog Karl held fire because the range was too long.

We have opened fire on the Italian cruisers with our main and (if in range) our secondary batteries.
Of our Battleships only Wein reported a possible hit on Verese. All other ships report the range is still too long for accurate gunnery.
Zenta exchanged fire with Marco Polo and straddled the target.

Budapest was struck by two shells from one of the cruisers. One bounced off our hull but the other exploded in our forward firecontrol center which has damaged our gunnery.

No other of our vessels were struck in the last 5 minutes.

Our screening vessels have moved to clear the battleships’ lines of fire. Third Destroyer and Second torpedo boat groups have reversed course and are in circle to resume their positions relative to the battleline and remain out of the line of fire.

The enemy has reformed it’s lines and appears to be turning east to match our formation. Their battleships have not opened fire.

"A MEASURE OF BRANDY FOR THE CREW THAT SCORED THAT HIT!!!!"

Continue to follow the flag.

As soon as the battleships are in range, begin firing on them.

Secondaries will fire upon the cruisers as soon as they are in range.

Make a signal to the flagship:

"Submit that our destroyers and torpedo boats position themselves for a torpedo attack on the Italian battleline"

All ships, maintain formation and continue executing prior orders. Battleship Squadron maintain fire on enemy cruisers. Erzherzog Friedrich and Erzherzog Ferdinand Max each respectively engage Etruria and Lombardia.

None of your ships are short on ammo at this point except for the cruisers in Rob's squadron. They have been in near constant action since the early morning hours.

Your BB's have a couple of hours of ammo. for all their weapons

KKVI is running short on HE ammo. She has about 100rds of AP and a couple dozen HE rounds for the main battery. Secondary battery has a few hundred rounds of ammo.

Panther and Leopard have several hundred rounds of ammo left.

Very well.

Signal to flag: "Ammunition expenditures render destruction of invasion convoy problematic if escorts provide serious resistance. Should situation arise, intend to shadow and maintain contact to allow battle line to engage following destruction of enemy main force."
