Default Question about Battle of the North Cape

Does anybody know what date the Battle of The North Cape occurred at the northern tip of Norway? I'm fairly certain it was sometime in 1997 but I cant get an actual date for it. I am doing a write up on the Royal Navy in the Twilight War and would appreciate if anyone had some information about it.

That would be the Twilight War not the Second World War. Or maybe you were just joking.

June 1997 as detailed in Boomer (Last Sub 3) page 11.

"At sea, the offensive fared even worse as coastal missile boats and the last remnants of the Soviet Northern Fleet's shore-based aviation assets used up their carefully husbanded stores of fuel and ordnance to inflict crippling losses on the NATO fleet. By the middle of June, the last major fleet-in-being in the world had been shattered."

Excellent, thanks Ewan.

From the writeup in Boomer I think we are looking at a battle that may have lasted as long as ten days or more - i.e. it wasnt a short fight that was over in the course of a day or two

I think it was the last big naval battle in the North Atlantic theatre.
