Kaiser Karl VI is on course 55, speed 11 knots. She is leading Leopard and Panther towards the convoy.

Panther is on course 55, speed 11 knots. She has assumed position behind Leopard

Leopard’s is on course 55, speed 11 knots.

The cruisers have not been under fire in the last 5 minutes. Dandalo has again disappeared behind smoke. It may be that prevailing winds are pushing the smoke towards our position.

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 secondary batteries.
Our ships have scored hits on both Marco Polo and Lombardia.

Wein hit Marco Polo at least once. The target is afire and slowing.

Erzherhog Ferdinand Max hit the Lombardia twice. The target is severely damaged, low in the water and on fire.

None of our battleships were struck in the last 5 minutes.

Our cruiser Zenta and our destroyers were subjected to a large amount of inaccurate fire but no hits were scored.

Zenta continued to exchange fire with Marco Polo but scored no hits. Fire from our battleline was obscuring the target.
We were not struck in return.

The enemy has reformed it’s line and has turned to 90 which matches our formation. Their battleships are not yet in range to fire.

As flag is unresponsive, assuming temporary command, flag in Habsburg.

All ships maintain course and continue firing upon current targets, except EFMax switch targets to Liguria, signal 'good shooting, get another one'.

First Torpedoboot Group, report readiness of fish and prepare for action next turn...

The Italian battleships are not within range yet, are they? Its kind of hard to tell from the map. I think the guns on Monarch, Budapest and Wien have an effective range of about 10K yards, right?

Max range on all weapons is 10k (limited by range finding not the gun) unless the gun doesn't shoot that far (ie: 3" and below) on it's own.

I'm still concerned about the ammo supply.

Unless I get some better results in the next turn, I'm going to order my ships to cease fire.

How many shells have we expended per gun and as a percentage of the ammo carried?

Thanks
