The RCN still exists

At first glance Viscount Byng would make a half decent platform but her age might be an issue. I've thought about converting the Training carrier Sibony into a test ship for ballistic and "cruise" missiles, her flat top is ideal but her age is a bit of a concern. It does make her expendable though.

The RCN still exists

If cost is an issue why not simply convert a large merchant ship with lots of deck space to test missile systems? As an example Atlantis is converting its old airship tenders to test various missiles turning "white elephants" into "useful engines".

The RCN still exists

My two cents, ditch the Gyrodyne its a test ship and it eats up valuable safety space on the aft deck. I also personally think the launcher/guidance is a bit modern/complex for a first test bed. One guidance radar should be enough as its one matter to launch missiles successfully and another to launch more than one with any efficiency at this time in history. Also the after directors seem redundant as do retaining so many torpedo's, I'd ditch half the launchers. Otherwise looks good to me.

Operation Pegase

Quoted from "Rooijen10" Quoted we like over reactions! Over reactions can cause incidents... ... maybe a certain huge and evil nation far to your east might send a submarine to the Atlantic on a mission and sink one of the vessels involved while hiding underneath the ship of another nation (kind of like Star Trek VI) to cause an incident. Better send it now, you might get there to watch the news reels released to the public after the fact....

Good news!

Quoted from "BruceDuncan" Interesting. As a subscriber, I have yet to receive any communication from Photobucket relating to this change of policy. I look forward to receiving such an official statement. I only found out when I started viewing my encyclopedia posts and noticed the pictures were showing up....even then it took me a few seconds to realize it as I've been used to seeing them for so long.

Good news!

For some of us using Photo bucket, there is good news. Photo bucket has restored all hosted pictures lost last year when they limited third party access to paid subscribers only. They have also slashed basic membership fees by 95%, all of this in an effort to restore good faith with their customers. http://www.4-traders.com/amp/news/Photob…d-Re--26607515/ I'm not sure how permanent the restoration of previously posted third party pictures is but it's quite a pleasant surprise.

Operation Pegase

Quoted from "Brockpaine" Good so far! Quoted from "BruceDuncan" Bramesfeld nodded. “Is FO Bayard still at Dakar?” Merten shook his head. “Bailly has taken the precaution of moving Bayard to Casablanca – a double-edged sword. Yes, it places him closer to the probable area of operations, but forces him to make an early decision on where to engage. If he passes to the east of Atlantis, he will not be able to intercept Engel until he moves towards the Biscay ports; if he passes to the west of Atlan...

Turkish projects, 1946 and beyond

The Ankara class light cruiser spring sharp file has been a bit wonky for a while, showing a raised forecastle when in fact its supposed to be a flush deck design. The raised forecastle is only 4.2 feet higher than the rest of the ship! (17.22/21.4), that's even too short for Filipino smoking penguins so I've resimed the ship with a proper flush deck. Its slightly higher at 17.8 feet but the trim/stability/seakeeping are the same, while the hull strength and average freeboard is as near to the o...

Noticias Argentinas 1948

Actually I was thinking that the many aircraft being sent by other nations, allies in particular, would be able to airlift in the supplies in and those in medical distress out. At any rate Atlantis will also be sending its own aircraft if needed.
