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.

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

The cruisers have not been under fire in the last 5 minutes. We have closed formation down to 1,000 yard intervals. Dandalo is moving towards us at about 15 knots. We estimate she will be in firing range in about 10-15 minutes if all vessels stay on their present course.

Our Battle Divisions are on course 101 at 14 knots because of damage to various vessels. Ezherhog Karl is making 10 knots and two of our destroyers have had to maneuver to avoid her.

We are continuing to engage the enemy battleline with our main batteries and the enemy cruiser line with our secondary batteries. Generally speaking, our vessels have fired down the enemy battleline with our lead ship engaging their lead ship unless otherwise ordered. Because of the great volumes of fire, our gunnery officers are only reporting the damage they have noted to enemy vessels. Our battleline is about 7,000 yards away from the enemy battleline. Parts of the enemy cruiser screen have come within 5,000 yards of our battleline.

Re Umberto was hit once with unknown effect.
Sardegna was not hit.
Regina Elena was hit once amidships, damage unknown.
Roma was hit once with minor damage to her secondary battery.
Vittorio Emanuele was hit once and appears to have slowed.
Napoli was hit twice and is burning.
Sicilia was straddled but not hit.
Zenta engaged Elba and hit her once in the stern. The target has slowed.
Lombardia was hit by the secondaries of multiple ships. She has slowed and is low in the water. We may have crippled her.

Zenta was struck by several cruiser rounds and has taken hull damage. Her speed is reduced to 19 knots.

Monarch received two hits from battleship caliber shells. She has lost some fire control ability. Our armor defeated an enemy shell that hit our hull.

Budapest was hit by two shells. She is on fire and is no longer under helm. She is beginning to turn out of line away from the enemy.

Babenburg was straddled but not hit.


Erzherhog Ferdinand Max was struck by a shell that hit her remaining turret. The turret is still in action but damaged. She has taken significant damage to her secondary battery.

Erzherhog Friedrich received one hit which inflicted minor damage to her fire control

Our screening vessels engaged the enemy cruiser line and scored several ineffective hits. Our screen was engaged by the enemy’s cruisers but their shooting has been ineffective.

The enemy battleline has come to course roughly 90. The enemy fleet is moving at about 15 knots, likely because of battle damage. Several enemy vessels are burning.

Our torpedo boats are moving into position for a torpedo attack.

Cruisers maintain course and speed.

"DAMAGE CONTROL PARTIES GET A MOVE ON!!!"

"STEWARD, WHERE'S MY BRANDY???"

Maintain course and speed as best possible, follow the orders of the flag. Continue firing.

Am I correct in my assumption that my avatar is present on Budapest?

if so,

"GET THAT GOTVERDAMNT STEERING FIXED!!!!"

Ships astern mind Budapest as she turns out of line!

Ships targeting Lombardi, switch targets to cover Budapest's target.

Other ships continue firing at current targets, we're giving them a pounding!

Cruiser squadron is free to maneuver as desired, but mind the torpedo squadron...

Torpedo squadron: ATTACK REPEAT ATTACK.

The cruiser squadron commander respectfully reminds the Admiral Commanding that he's mistaken the Destroyer Leader and her destroyers for cruisers. We intend to maneuver as desired, but thanks for the endorsement.

Also, have somebody note on the plot the course taken by Dandolo.
