Well, since I didn't actually *see* anyone tell you how large the
were (though there were a few refs to my web site)....

I don't think the actualy size of the squares would matter, since a
is a square is a square in that game, tho only one ship (barring Cobras)
could occupy a square at a time (???).	Anyway.  "Typical" gun ranges
up to 6 squares, with some up to 9 squares, so in my conversions I
called 6 squares equivalent to a "B" battery, er, class-2, which makes
square 4" on the side.	If you call 6 squares the range of a class-3
then you get 6" per side.

Hope this helps,
