##### New puzzle
Battleships, also known as "Solitaire Battleships" or "Battleship Solitaire," is a logic puzzle that draws its inspiration from the classic Battleships guessing game. The puzzle is presented on a 10x10 grid, where an armada of battleships is hidden. The fleet consists of one battleship (4 squares), two cruisers (3 squares each), three destroyers (2 squares each), and four submarines (1 square each). The ships are placed either horizontally or vertically and are arranged so that they do not touch each other, not even diagonally. Numbers at the bottom and right of the grid give clues about how many squares in each row and column are occupied by ship parts. The objective is to deduce where all the ships are located.
