Nordish Tanks

Funny that you mentioned this - I was actually considering the option of using some 32TP Lwica components (hull, drivetrain, engines, etc) and substituting a Nordish gun and turret.

Nordish Tanks

Quoted from "Rooijen10" Considering relations, I would think that they would look at South Africa first before any other nation. I'd tend to agree, were it not that (at least from the encyclopedia) about 2/3rds of Nordmark's older tanks were straight up either ordered from Germany or license-built German designs. I think that's slightly odd, since OTL Sweden at least had a modest local design capability, and rarely bought foreign. So at least in the past there was definitely a pretty close conn...

Nordish Tanks

Last we saw the Nordish armoured forces, three armoured divisions were on the books (although two of them were being formed). The Nords had what was at that time a powerful and numerous mix of both German-built and Nordish license-built Panzer IIs and IIIs, with a hefty smattering of Nordish-designed Leopard I tanks on the side. In the 1940s, Sweden attempted to maintain parity with their European neighbors in terms of medium tank development, but the developments of WWII simply overwhelmed thei...

Nordish Tanks

I'm in the middle of putting together something for the 1949 International Army Games that Russia hosts, and I wanted to include the currently-NPC Nordish army in the tank biathlon section. At the moment, the last we've heard of Nordish armour is the m/42, which is a sadly outdated design by 1949 standards. This in spite of Sweden's long historical interest and innovation in armoured development. Would anyone object if I offered ups some detail to Nordish armoured equipment?

French News, 1948

Among the largest. ;) Although I might've missed something, I think they ARE actually the largest ships currently being built in Europe, though obviously Ishinajengo is significantly larger in displacement.

Quoted from "Hood" I see the baby must be keeping you awake at nights. ;) :D There's definitely been some of that, yes! :P Although when I'm up with him at night, I tend to avoid videos with a lot of talking, since I tend to miss 75% of the information when Squeaker starts squeaking. (We nicknamed him Squeaker since his cry is... very high-pitched.) In those circumstances, my go-to channel is actually HinduCowGirl - a Norwegian locomotive engineer who puts a 4K camera in the front of his/her tr...

Youtube Channel Recommendation

For those of you who may not have already discovered it, I'd like to recommend Drachinifel's Youtube channel. He's an amateur naval historian who makes short vignettes about historical (primarily WWI and WWII) warships and battles. Soothing listening voice, classically British sense of humor, and well-researched content. Some of my recommended videos: - HMS Tiger (1913) - Not Exploding on the Job - The Raid on the Medway - Grand Theft Warship - The Battle of Samar - Odds? What are those? - The C...

Russia, Q4/1948

General Notes for this Sim Report I made some modest updates to the order of battle. Up until this quarter, the OOB for the amphibious forces listed only the Krokodil-class landing ships. The existing Alligator and Caiman-class ships were absent from the list. Further, I'd noted that each of the four main fleets (Baltic, Northern, Black, and Pacific) each had six Krokodils. This could not, in fact, be correct, as Russia only built eighteen of these vessels, not twenty-four. Therefore, I removed ...

On the footsteps of the others

Quoted from "parador" Quoted from "Brockpaine" Quoted from "parador" The archipelago is a Terra Nullius, it belongs to nobody and no one claims the island. OOC: I do not believe that to be true. When Skull Island first came up early in Wesworld, I believe it was claimed by the Netherlands as part of the Dutch East Indies. Taken into account, the position of the island (noted by Bruce: 12 dgs 5 min South, 78 dgs 17 min East) - somewhere in the middle of nowhere i would say ... it could also be c...
