- Decisive German Victory: Sink Ajax, Achilles and Exeter or
inflict at least 50% damage to each ship before disengaging or
forcing Hunting Force G to disengage.
- Tactical German Victory: Damage each cruiser sufficiently
enough to maintain a 2" or greater speed advantage and disengage
from Hunting Force G pursuit.
- Decisive British Victory: Sink Graf Spee.
- Tactical British Victory: Damage Graf Spee at least 25% and
avoid damage sufficiently to maintain a 2" or greater speed
advantage with at least one cruiser and maintain contact with
Graf Spee's aircraft is out of commission due to an engine failure.
Disengaging: Disengaging from the enemy occurs if Graf Spee
withdraws and has superior tactical speed, causing the British
to lose contact. (Per GQ1, Part III, Campaign Operations, Tactical
