237 BC. Cicily finally belonged to carthage alone. With the blessing of the gods I boarded ship in syracuse, bound for italy and rome. Unluckily there was bad weather which deleyed my passage and so I was forced to use a turn. Whe nthe turn ended, the roman, numidian and spainish navies attacked my 3 ships without mercy. 5 times they attacked and 5 times my fleet was defeated. The last attack sunk the last ship. 1500 well trained, well equipped, confident soldiers under the command of a legendary commander drowned.

Heh, really bad luck here. On such a short journey, too

I usually use the rugby strategy when transporting armies. A trireme with the army sails peacefully behind, while a bunch of quinquiremes beat the living daylight out of everything in the front. Transportation made fun!

Numidia did the same thing to me when I transported Onagers from Carthage to Sicily. A ship full of Onagers went down.

I conquered and exterminated the rest of Afrika as revenge a few decenia later..

Which is why I love the Scipii. Nobody messes with the Scipii navy.

That is hard core, the much maligned AI seemed to know a good thing when it found it. Attacking a fleet 5 times is no coincidence. It sucks to lose a great commander and his army without even being able to fight but when you crush their AI balls later it will be all the more sweet.
