In the early morning of April 16, 1943, the Italian torpedo boats Cigno and Cassiopea were escorting the transport Belluno off Marettimo Island (off the western tip of Sicily) when they were intercepted by the British destroyers Pakenham and Paladin. In the ensuing melee, Cigno was sunk, but not before scoring several hits on the Pakenham, crippling her (later to be scuttled). The Cassiopea was badly damaged in the encounter, but survived, and the transport reached its destination.
I recently came across this battle while browsing the web, and thought it would make for a good WC-NAW scenario. However, the Spica class torpedo boats are not in the database, so I chose the Sella class to represent them, as they are the closest fit, although somewhat larger and more powerful (795 tons, three 3.9" guns, and four 18" torpedo tunes; versus 990 tons, four 4.7" guns and four 21" torpedo tubes).
The Italian side has a 1.5 victory point modifier, but in my first run through playing the RM, I was able to sink both British destroyers with only light damage to one vessel.
