What an amazing cash grab. Everything that should have been in a "game", found in multiple over-priced annexes.

Is this a pirate game?

Admiralty Trilogy Group, you stink.

So far, not even a decent review.

Thank you ATG for all the effort on Harpoon V. Such a worthwhile study of the modern tactical environment.

i'm lost. Is this where I can buy the game called Harpoon v? I see two books referring to the game but no digital game download.

The data annexes seem to be missing?

Ah, I misread. The other books are the data annexes.

So you do have to buy at least other 2 books in order to make a scenario? Or 4, since USN and Russian navy ships and aircraft come in different books.

Which are the annexes? I see the ship books but where are weapons and sensor annexes?

Randall, from the USN Ships description: "Annexes C and on give detailed weapons and sensors characteristics, including guns, missiles, ASW weapons, radars, sonars, with all the information needed to used them in a Harpoon scenario". But it still isn't clear for me if you can find enough info to prepare some scenarios without buying these books besides the core rules.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
