The Victory at Sea rules manual presented in this starter game contains all you need to know to begin playing during World War II with the fleets included. None superior are those of the World War ships designed for naval warfare.

Victory at Sea (abbreviated to VAS) is a set of World War II naval wargaming rules published by Mongoose Publishing. They were a development of Mongoose's Babylon 5: A Call to Arms SF starship combat rules written by Matthew Sprange, with assistance from David Manley, Richard Bax, Erik Nicely, and Agis Neugebauer, having been initially released through a series of articles in the Mongoose house journal Signs and Portents. A supplement to the rules entitled Victory At Sea - Order of Battle, including expanded ship lists and new rules, was written in 2007. It was rushed into print, unreviewed, and with a large number of errors left uncorrected - an unofficial 28-page errata was available several days after its release was announced. The rules have spawned a number of unofficial period and scale variants including ironclad actions and World War II destroyer actions.[1] An official World War I variant entitled Victory at Sea - Age of Dreadnoughts, written by David Manley was published in 2008.[2]

VAS caused something of a storm when it was released in 2006. It was reviled by some elements of the naval wargaming hobby as being over-simplistic and unrealistic, resulting in some poor press on various wargaming fora (e.g. NavWarGames, and in the Naval Wargames Society journal Battlefleet). However, despite this, a number of discussions on various internet wargaming fora have suggested that it has proven to be popular and serves as a useful "entry-level" set of rules and also as a gateway into historical naval wargaming for science fiction and fantasy wargamers who are already familiar with rules published by Mongoose.

It is World War II and the age of the dreadnoughts has passed and naval warfare is being dominated by Aircraft Carriers. Submarines hunt convoys like wolves and the numerous and nimble destroyers rule the oceans. Destroy enemy battleships, torpedo enemy convoys, and hunt the enemy wherever you may find them. Advance through the naval ranks from a Captain of a Destroyer to an Admiral of a vast fleet. Win medals for

The real meat of VAS is its 144 pages' worth of fleet lists. Nations covered include the British Royal Navy, US Navy, German Kriegsmarine, French Marine Nationale, Italian Regia Marina, Imperial Japanese Navy, and civilian vessels (tramp freighters, Victory or Liberty Class transports, etc). Each national section is further divided into specific subsections for battleships, aircraft carriers, cruisers, destroyers, submarines, motor
