Default Re: Voyage to Annihilation via Damnation, The deployment of the Tsar's Fleet to Tsush

Departing Jade on 11th July they reached China by the end of August 1900, without mishap.

The point being that the voyage of the Baltic fleet wasn't without precedent, but also showing what an absolute hash the Russians made of it.

The logistics would have been easier for the Germans as they would have had access to British bases and coal supplies.
