Being able to see some recorded stats from ships in the campaign would be nice. This ship has so many battles fought, this number of hits scored, this many hits taken. I'm not sure what else you could add, kills are hard to identify a lot of them unless it's like a one on one type deal which was rare.

All ships launched in 1938....

This morning HMS Agamemnon (15inch mains, 14 inch mains, 13 inch secondaries and 5 inch secondaries) and the battlecruiser HMS Ocean (nine 16 inch mains and 5 inch 3 inch secondaries) engaged the Jerry battleship KGM Hessen (14 inch mains, 8 inch secondaries) and the battlecruiser Tannenberg (15 inch mains, 5 inch secondaries) at a starting range of 18 KM with the closest close range of 11.5 KM. Accuracy fire on Hessen with continued hits was attained at 35 minutes into the fight.

KGM Hessen was sunk after 45 minutes of engagement by combined gunfire while KGM Tannenberg escaped the range with 80 percent structure and 99 percent floatability.

Damage to HMS Agamemnon was 80 percent structure and 85 percent floatability while damage to HMS ocean was 70 percent structure and 75 percent floatability. My apologies to his majesty for the abuse of his most splendid battlecruiser but a good job was made by all hands. Hail Britannia!

Scratch one "Jerry can" for his Majesty King George. GSTK!

Captain HMS Agamemnon sends his compliments.
