OT fun

<img src="" border="0" alt="YAMA YAMA"><br><b>Yamato</b> class (<i>IJN Yamato</i>)

With a main armament consisting of nine 18.1/45<br>guns, the heaviest displacement of any<br>battleship ever built, the Yamato is the<br>monster of the battleship world. More armor,<br>heavier weapons, and superior optics made this<br>battleship something nobody else wanted to get<br>close to. In the end, torpedos and bombers<br>proved its end as aircraft carriers supplanted<br>battleships as the kings of the sea. Few<br>warships of today outmass it, and none have<br>ever carried bigger guns or heavier armor. The<br><i>Yamato</i> was overawing beyond any doubt.

The third planned <i>Yamato</i> class battleship<br>was actually completed as an aircraft carrier.

I found that one a month or two ago. I ended up as a Yamato back then. I just did it again and I ended up as a Yamato again.
(making note: Build lots of Yamato's in the late thirties)

Well the 18.1 inch guns will certianly overshadow any treaty 15 inch guns...or even the proposed 17 inch guns from an earlier thread.

(Mine came out as Bismarck)

this is insulting!!! :D :D :D

<img src="" border="0" alt="venetio vittorio class"><br>Vittorio Veneto class. (<i>Vittorio Veneto, Roma,<br>Littorio.</i>)

The Italian battleship of WWII. Powerful and<br>relatively nimble at 30 knots, it was<br>nonetheless not quite as heavily armored and<br>turned out to be poorly protected against<br>torpedo attacks in spite of a combination of<br>interesting but largely ineffectual<br>innovations. Still a formidable foe, but in the<br>end more impressive in looks than any other<br>category. Although mounting three triple<br>turrets with unusually powerful 15/50 guns - <br>which had a very short barrel lifespan - the<br>Vittorio had a short operating radius and one<br>of the weakest anti-aircraft suites of any<br>battleship built after 1930. Although it was<br>officially intended to stay within the treaty<br>limit of 35,000 tons, it is generally<br>considered to have gone well beyond that.

Just pressing a few things gave me this one. :-)

<img src="" border="0" alt="Gangut Class"><br><b>Gangut</b>

The Gangut class was the largest native class of<br>battleship actually used by the USSR in WWII.<br>They also served in WWI, but underwent<br>extensive upgrades and modification over the<br>years. With four triple 12 inch guns, the<br>Gangut carried light firepower but potentially<br>the highest overall rate of fire of any<br>battleship in terms of heavy shells per minute.

A WWI workhorse, the <i>Gangut</I> class was<br>re-used throughout WWII, providing surface<br>bombardment to support the Soviet advance<br>through Germany; although a heavier battleship<br>class, the <i>Sovietski Soyuz</I>, was under<br>construction as WWII opened up, it was never<br>brought into action, leaving the Gangut the<br>largest Soviet battleship on record.

<img src="" border="0" alt="Richelieu"><br><b>Richelieu</b> class (<i>Richelieu, Jean<br>Bart</i>)

Elegant, distinctive, innovative, and excellent.<br>The premier french battleship, and one of very<br>few battleships actually built that respected<br>the 35,000 ton displacement limitation set<br>forth in the Washington Treaty.

The Richelieu sported numerous unique<br>systems, such as foil-skinned bouyant foam<br>capsules to prevent taking on too much water<br>from torpedo hits, excellent void and and water<br>filled torpedo blisters, exceptionally well<br>designed armor, some of the best (and longest<br>range) 15 inch guns ever built with a unique<br>loading system. Although it started life with a<br>relatively weak anti-aircraft system on par<br>with the Vittorio Veneto, it was refitted by<br>the Allies during its rather eventful history<br>to carry a much heavier anti-aircraft suite.<br>This class was retired in the 1950s-1960s, with<br>the <i>Richelieu</i> being finally scrapped in<br>1970.

<i>2x4 15/45
9 6/55
12 3.9/45
12 37mm (pre-refit #1)
24 13.2mm (pre-refit #1)
56 40mm (post-refit #1)
48 20mm (post-refit #2)
28 57mm (Jean Bart, post-war)
20 20mm (Jean Bart, post-war)</I>

I wasn't too thrilled about this, but:

[SIZE=1]You are the USS Maine!

Like the infamous American pre-dreadnought, you are old and slow. You are prone to spontaneous explosions that defy explanation and bring an abrupt and disappointing end to vacations in warm climates. Newspapermen will write lies about you and wars will be fought because of you. Try again - and this time, provide some different answers, dumbass. [/SIZE]

I did that, and second time around, I was KGV.

Good god I was a hair away from being a U.S.S. Maine!!

I seem to remember one of these where I was Jamie Primero - if all else fails - at least I could shoot myself.

If I try I think it was Richelieu - but I can still shoot myself.
