This one almost slipped past my radar...see what I did there?

Seriously, it looks pretty cool.

I'm surprised nobody has made one before.  The classic "glass hammer" and the damage control effectiveness of the Japanese and American ships made an impact on the margins.

This looks unique enough to be a hit. I guess we'll see when the time comes.

Was there something similar to this but with a destroyer - or am I thinking of the board game Picket Duty?

I think you stirred the Hornet's nest with this thread JH.

Saw a let's play stream the other day about it.  This game kind of reminds me of UBoot.  Looks cool but if it's anything like UBoot I fear it might get boring fast. 
Forgive me my old friend.  But I must use all my experience...to get home.

I disagree.  I think it's quite Intrepid.
