The RCN still exists

The Gyrodyne is not intended to be deployed, actually, but the facilities to allow one to operate from the quarterdeck still exist. The aft directors have existed since the ship was built, and the armament has not been reduced all that much, really, and I assume the 5.5" and AA suite still need direction. The setup and fit is as elaborate and complex mostly because the ship is unusually well suited to support it; any other ship would require extensive structural alterations (turret and barbette ...

The RCN still exists

from what i can gather, that test and system is more elaborate than the PEI's initial trials would've been; That testing phase would've just been Loon-clones being lobbed at surface targets using the existing aviation equipment, and i think the aim was late '46. The Commonwealth's anti-aircraft testing seems to have been done mostly on shore facilities, with the first seagoing tests now being conducted using PEI as the platform.

The RCN still exists

it's more of a torpedo really... On a more serious note, as a trials ship it'll be lobbing a bunch of things around; One of the advantages of using this ship is the fairly large open spaces for a relatively flexible and modular setup. Initials tests are scheduled to be done with British developed systems, but Canada still in theory has access to US developed systems. I'd cook up more specific crazy Canadian hybrids like I've done in other areas, but missile tech isn't something I'm well read on....

Dutch ships desappeared....

There's also extremely high demand for steel produced prior to the first nuclear detonations, for scientific applications, and the number one resource for that is old (even sunk) ships.

Moving Forward

I wouldn't say I'm AWOL, I've been posting batch updates for Canada when needed, and if I'm needed for anything, pinging me in the IRC channel will get me fairly quickly. There isn't much new to post for Canada, short of a war breaking out.

Royal Navy Ships for 1948

Quoted from "Rooijen10" Quoted The turrets will be used more or less as is, though as you point out they may need additional elevation, though I suspect the General Class gunboats had enough elevation to lob shells far enough inland for counter-battery work and fort-smashing. They're about 10 years or so old, so I think that the mounts may be modern enough to have good enough elevation for them to work that no alterations are needed. I don't think I ever specified the exact elevation degrees fo...

Royal Navy Ships for 1948

Quoted from "Hood" Unlike the RCN, the RN does not use an autoloader for any of its 9.2in guns (I think the RCN uses them, I could be wrong though). When doing the master plan for the RCN's final gun evolutions, it was determined (OOC) that a 9.2" Automatic would not be a viable weapon. No doubt the RCN has tinkered with the concept anyway, but it has not resulted in a deployable weapons system. The 9.2" guns in service on the Serapis class are the same weapons in service with the RN. Quoted fr...

A bit late, sir, but I remind you Majestic is still in service in the RCN, and has retained her RN name.
