Submarines

In 1947 Colombia ordered its first Submarines from Atlantis and chose the type 42 design, construction begining in 1948. An initial order of 4 boats was placed while the government considered ordering perhaps as many as 12 in total. In addition the government was looking into the possibility of ordering R-98 type boats to act as coastal submarines. The Colombian Type 42's were named Triunfo, Intrépido, Indomable and Defensa. Other names alocated for future subs were Protectora, Tempestad, Impres...

Yugoslav News and Events 1949

OOC, Turkey would more or less support its Warsaw allies but is fine with the status quo as they don't want to sour relations with Italy either. It would quietly support Yugoslavian/Greek aspirations for Vlore and I doubt they would consider the ethnic implications of a comfortably unified Yugoslavia focused on matters inside its borders. Byzantium would by extension largely hold the view of Atlantis, that it prefers the status quo. Unlike Atlantis however the Byzantean government has never seen...

Its also worth noting that historically while the U.S. had Norton Sound to test with they also had the battleship Mississippi and tested larger ballistic missiles aboard carriers without much in the way of modifications (in the case of the carriers).

Brock basically explained it better than I did and as he said not a waste of time! Atlantis has quite a few missile types to experiment with so having two ships allows for as brock said, continuous testing even while one ship is reconfiguring for another type. The missile workshop is not a fabrication shop, its intended to be an assembly shop with parts being premade and transported to the ship.

It couldn't be any less useless than the historical U.S.S. Norton Sound or HMS Girdle Ness. Russia also has a missile cruiser in Wesworld and IIRC just started to build more.

I'm confused, if all three cruisers have identical sensors why is only Phoenix getting air radar returns? It sounds like she is the farthest from the Blue squadron when they arrive. It also appears that the Atlantean ships are either not using their own surface detection radars or they are ineffective.

And now for something entirely different...

Quoted from "Brockpaine" And I'll add in another potentially interesting channel recommendation. A naval historian by the name of Dr. Alexander Clarke has started filming some of his lectures, as well as conducting Q&A livestreams. I listened to part of yesterday's livestream, which was on the design of Royal Navy aircraft carriers during the period leading up to, and during, World War II. It was extremely informative. He addressed some of the reasons why RN carriers look distinctly different f...

Also worth noting, I think your confusing Andromeda, a Perseus class cruiser, with the older Daedalus class cruisers, essentially their electronics would be virtually identical to the Phoenix. Only main guns (their number and RoF) and number of secondary and AA guns differ. The Perseus class is a sort of hybrid between the Daedalus and the Phoenix but more towards the Daedalus in terms of basic hull design and gun layout. Also, it seems odd that the Atlantean cruisers are not also using their ow...

No worries, I have had cut and paste errors in many of my reports. I spend more time re rereading and editing my reports than making them!

I'm just hoping Captain Alexos Noros manages to alert Momroios in time for the Atlantean fleet to redeem itself. Or I could just hope for the weather to improve so aircraft can start to play a more active role. No doubt some hard lessons have been gained (or regained) from this exercise thus far.

Kingdom of Greece Q1 1949

From what I can tell you have 6 destroyers building, using 243 tons each for a total of 1,458 tons used for ship building. The report states 2,422 tons used, either you missed some usage or simply missed changing the tally and the summary portion of the report.
