Meanwhile, in Russia: 1948

Nicely done, the "five year old smacking a pan" comment had me snorting my coffee!

RAN 1945+ catalog

I get the character issue and I agree it makes them look unique. However I noticed you have used some of my own "parts" for the drawing with perhaps not as much understanding of what's actually drawn. The most obvious to me is the splinter shield deck aft of B turret, on Atlantean destroyers of the area it protrudes out over the next deck below and is flush to the hull hence the "X" bracing support. Later Atlantean destroyers (though I have no current drawings posted to show it) have this area p...

RAN 1945+ catalog

Is her hull break that far forward in the SS file?

1940s IJN designs

Hate to add to the negatives but I have to agree, its not really worth the refit and IMO actually reduces their combat effectiveness even as old as they are. You could spend as much on a small carrier or spend as much tonnage as one of these conversions on helicopter decks on various ships. The real reason the historical IJN did so many scout plane conversions was because they relied on them to find the enemy much in the way the Americans used radar so having large numbers on their fighting ship...

RAN 1945+ catalog

Switching from five singles to three twins will save a lot of deck space while adding a gun, that seems like a very worthwhile refit to me.

Commonwealth Adjustment

I'm with Bruce, however Australia, New Zealand and Britain deal with their ships/transfers is their business. Quoted from "ShinRa_Inc" The comment is directed less towards her aesthetic appeal, and more to the conundrum of both ships coexisting; the RAN has retired it's WWI era ships, and the RCN is eyeing the retirement of it's own contemporary WWI battle cruisers, surely such discussions are happening in the Lantean admiralty. Well seeing as you mention it, yes Atlantis is looking at the prosp...

Commonwealth Adjustment

Quoted from "ShinRa_Inc" To be fair, your Vengeance is pretty long-in-tooth by now.... No ones ever made that comment when referencing Warspite or Hood's looks. In Warspites case she was quite long in the tooth.

As long as NATO doesn't have an all members exercise Vengeance seems good but we all know which country has the more graceful looking "Vengeance" ;-)

I'd agree to converting the type 2 and 3 slips to dry dock's and Cockatoo island. As Hood said, there would be little change in what's already been built there and little benefit in 5 sim years time.

I'm fine with it, I too am somewhat behind with reports and I've actually been working on some the last few days (gasp!!) so it might help move things along.

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...
