The naval model is another kettle of fish. In my view, the same paradigm should be adopted as for the air war. For example, in the fighting off Crete in 1941, the Royal Navy wouldn't physically move to the waters north of Crete. Rather, it would be set to an unqualified 'interdict' mode. The computer would then make it pounce when the Germans tried to support their airborne attack with an amphibious component. Just like an entrained unit getting blown off the rails by an air interdiction, the German embarked battalions would suddenly bounce back to Athens, disembarked and considerably the worse for wear and tear. Of course, German air units having been set to intercept naval movements, most of the intercepting Royal Naval units would be 'sunk' -- which in OPART terms, they were.
