"...We have located the enemy fleet
under the command of Admiral Kompüter, but do not yet have
visual contact. We suggest the best course of action is to fire
at random into their vicinity and listen for the impact of the shells...
...Our intelligence sources indicate
the composition of the enemy fleet is the same as our own, and has
likewise been forced to resort to the same tactics as ourselves.
In accordance with the rules of war, fire will be exchanged one
shell at a time and vessels lost will be announced immediately...
...As per your orders you have been
placed directly in command of the fleet's guns. Select the target
location by clicking in the left-hand grid above. The right hand
grid shows the status of our own fleet. Information as to the remaining
strength of the enemy will be relayed directly to your status bar...
...We believe this battle will not
be over until one or other fleet is sunk in it's entirety. Our gunners
await your commands. We're counting on you, Sir..."
