The Coastal Patrol is stepping up patrols in the Greater Tulagi Area, responding to increased Claw activities and a “nasty rumor.”

“I hear they’re trying to sink all the rum boats,” cried one CP pilot at Archerfield.

“It’s simply not true,” said a rep from the Claw. “The rum boats are ours.”

Both Claw and CP paints for the above Fairey Swordfish can be found here (link).


A meeting of the Seaplane Enthusiasts Association at the Linden Chalet has brought together some unusual enthusiasts together.

“I looked up,” said the receptionist Bill, “and there was this bearded wild man with a Claw patch and a bear hat. I was at a loss so I just said ‘name?’ Then he said ‘Cooper, from Claw.”

Other guests, which included ZoraSlade Karu (link) and Joe Sparrow of Astral-Tek were amazed at the man.

“We had wine and cheese, and talked about the Fairey seaplane (link),” said Astral Tek’s Adrian Faulkwing. “It was a bit surreal. He kept on and on about how more seaplanes needed torpedos like the Fairey.”

The team at Astral Tek has created another brilliant recreation, this time the iconic biplane of the second world war, the Fairey Swordfish. With three versions of craft included in the price (VICE, LANCE, and mod), this plane has already been seeing use in the first hours of its release.

“I absolutely love it,” said one pilot who landed at Archerfield Airfield. “You’ve got torpedos, bombs, and depth charges to work with, and I’ve already taken down three freighters!”

The aircraft is the latest to take advantage of the LANCE Combat System, a combat system that allows ships, subs, and aircraft to conduct combat operations in the massive Tulagi Area. In addition to the many participants in the area, “automated” freighters and aircraft act as targets.

“It’s the best combat area for an immersive experience,” said Anomaly Travels. “The LANCE System is huge, and if you like, there’s VICE too.”

The Astral Tek Fairey Swordfish can be found online (link) or at vendors in Tulagi, and FI Industries has already produced a paint set that includes Claw, Coastal Patrol, Archerfield Free Post, Blake Sea Camo, Civil Defense, and retired WSDF paints (link).
