What is R/C Naval Combat?
In R/C Naval Combat, captains from around the world build, fight, and sink WWI & WWII R/C scale model warships. Each ship is armed with CO2-powered cannons, armored in thin balsa, and built to scale specifications; typically the average battleship measures between 5 and 6 feet long! These vessels engage each other in combat, endeavoring to punch holes in each others hulls until one of the vessels sinks or flees. Yes, the cannon really do fire, the vessels really do take damage and sink, and yes, it is a ton of fun!
There are different groups of R/C combat. You have Big Gun, Model Warship Combat (MCW), International R/C Warship Combat Club, Washington Treaty Combat, and some others. Each group have there own rules and different scale of ships and guns. Such as Big Gun, some of their guns shoot ¼” ball bearings from their guns!!! My ship is modeled after the MCW rules being that there is a club near to where I live. The Great Lakes Attack Squadron fights on a pond in Ionia, Michigan and I have a link posted for their website. Also there is lots of good information on the MWC website and the R/C Naval Combat Forum.
