What's New ?
Stations Manned and Ready II
We are pleased to finally be able to say that Stations
Manned and Ready Edition II is ready for imminent release. In real
terms this means early in 2013. The rules are made up from the following
The Main Rule Book
Game Template Booklet (free)
Maritime Aircraft Data Booklet (free)
Ship Data catalogue (free)
Ship Data "Glossary" Booklet (free)
Merchant Vessel Booklet (free)
In order to play the game you will require in addition:
The Ship and Aircraft Data sets are available to purchase separately on "the Vault".
The national data sets for France,
Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Japan, Russia and the United States, as well
as Other Nations, are split into three segments by date (1885-1905, 1906-1925 and 1926 to 1945).
The split allows you to purchase the sets which you
want for the period you enjoy. If the data for a ship is valid for more than
one date segment it will appear in each appropriate set.
We would like to emphasise that what we are providing here
are the actual game data sheets for use in the game. There will be no need
to transfer data from printed page to a record sheet any more (apart from
destroyer names... we are not so mad that we have done a sheet for every
single small ship). For the number crunchers among you there are 3477
separate ship data sheets in the database. These allow for all the
reconstructions that took place, as well as other changes due to different
crew quality as time progresses.
The aircraft data set has been extensively revised and holds
over 1800 sets of aircraft data from 1914 to 1945. Rather than limit the
data to maritime aircraft we decided to present all the viable warplanes of
the period. The player can choose to provide air cover for his game if he

Manned and Ready 2nd Edition
Game Data Errata
While every effort has been taken to ensure that the data is
correct, some parts have required manual data input, and it is inevitable
that some typos may creep in. Some have already been spotted. Data errata
can be found by going to this page:
Stations Manned and Ready 2nd Edition Errata
Following the full release of the Second Edition of Stations
Manned and Ready, the data download sets for the first edition will be
removed after about 6 months, as these are incompatible. The very first
data sets for the 1st Edition have now been removed.
Air Combat Operations
In light of the work done on the above, our aspiration for a
quick release of Air Combat Operations has fallen by the wayside. This is in
part fortuitous because work on SMR II provided some useful tweaks that can
be applied to ACO. As a guesstimate we reckon that ACO would be ready by
mid-2013. The draft requires some re-writing, and the original data
algorithms which allowed for one data set from 1914 to now will largely be
dumped. We have decided that three periods will be required: up to the
widespread use of the fixed wing monoplane (ca 1935), up to the introduction
of the air to air missile (1956), and up the current times.
... and we thought we had retired...
Print on Demand
Wargame Vault have now also introduced a Print on Demand
facility, which enables the customer to purchase a printed copy of a
product, rather than the customer having to download and print it himself.
Some customers prefer to have a "hard copy" of the product. This facility is
supported by printers in the USA and Great Britain, who print and deliver
the product direct to you. The customer must bear in mind that a printed
copy will cost more than the PDF download, and there will be a postage cost.
Having gone down the digital road ourselves for practical
reasons, including the inability to haul heavy loads of paper round the
country, this new possibility is attractive to us, because we would not be
required to hold large stocks of a product. The customer can order his
single copy, via the Wargame Vault.
Setting up the Print on Demand files will take some time,
and we will prioritise certain products. If you have a priority wish list
please let us know.
