And now for something entirely different...

I tend to overlook logistics, yet this is a quite interesting video. The piers really impressed me.

Greek army.

Hi, sorry for answering too late. I had final exams and it had been an interesting couple of weeks to say the least. There is no particular reason why. I asked just in case you prefered to do it that way.

Greek army.

After careful consideration the centurion is the chosen one, although the many of the capabilities of the french AMX-40 impressed many in the army, especially those that experienced the gas during the Great War. The delivery would had started by early '48 either already converted to the swiss gun version or to be converted once in Greece, as the british government finds it most convenient.

New Medium Tank Competition

The greek army is in need of replace its old medium tanks. I am thinking on the Centurion (if the british government agree), but feel free of change mind with any other design. This tanks would have been adquiere somewhen between 1945 and 1948. The total number of tanks needed would be of 240 but a few more could be requested to have some repair parts.

A Question of Philosophy

Technically speaking you could elevate those figures, although that might be detrimental for Lauritania's economy. An option while you wait for the development of the new rifle to begin could be to find a cartridge that suits the ordnance department and purchase the rifles until the new one is ready.

A More “What If” Sort of Question

Well, assuming that France and the UK would be willing to do it, they could embargo Italy, increase the army on their borders and take the navy to the Mediterranean and then they sent Mussolini a note saying "back off" and hope for the best. Perhaps even pressure other nations around Italy to do the same. About the Suez Canal, they could try to make it go as an especial measure through the league of nations, but I doubt that the league would accept.

A More “What If” Sort of Question

I thought something similar. Arming Ethiopia with some modern equipment and close the Suez Canal. It could make shorter the ww2 (or just different) since that front would be defeated faster and/or with less troops. That would give the british a better position on North Africa. Maybe a more effective Operation Compass?

A Question of Philosophy

Well I was referring more as possible solution to your dilemma (and to ease my curiosity). Although the lose of a light cruiser probably would not compensate, especialy taking in count the amount of materials needed.

A Question of Philosophy

Refit, or not refit, that is the question. I have no idea so I will ask. Is possible to refit a light cruiser to make it a supply ship? or would it cost too much to be worthy?

A Question of Philosophy

I agree. I don't have as much experience with the refit system as you, but for what I have seen is not really attractive to make refit. At least no for the biggest refits needed for older ships.

Mmmmmh. If there is no war really close in the horizont I think that replace those heavy cruisers is the best option.

A Question of Philosophy

Not an expert but let's give it a try. A geography question. Assuming that the world map is the same that the real one. Where are located your country and colonies, more or less? How well do your flets match the ones of your potential enemies? (Supposing that you divide your navy between Europe and Asia).

Greek army.

Quoted 1 - The unladen weight of the vehicle (which I interpret to be 9800 kg) is much too high. Add the cargo and you are asking the engine (which is not specified) to haul 15 tonnes. In that case I will reduce the weight to 8800 kg of curb weight and 4800 kg of capacity. About the engine. The 1945-6 Greece wouldn't able to design a truck engine on their own. So any help from other power either in form of a help with the design of an engine or an existing engine is welcome (not asking for a fu...
