I forgot to add it so here it is. Also. I know that this not the place to ask but would do you like if I post about some greek experiments? To be more clear.

Yugoslav News and Events 1949

OOC: Within the military the more senior officers see the Albania situation and the "Italian Threat" as a reason to push for a modernization of the army. At the same time some of the more young officers see it as a chance of fame since they never saw combat but they don't have as much political power as the older officers. The politicians are more divided. The Royal House and the ones close to them prefer to support their yugoslav counterpart in keep it's territory under control. Others in a mor...

Yugoslav News and Events 1949

Right now the things a bit complicated. Greece doesn't have the man power or navy to face Italy by itself so it depends on the position of the rest of the Warsaw Pact. If Yugoslavia withdraw of the economic blockade greece would have no option but backdow too. In the other hand if Greece knows that counts with the help of Yugoslavia and the support of France and/or Russia a more direct action would be accepted. Although in case of war previous preparation have to be completed (modernization over...

New Designs and Refits of the Greek Fleet

All of them of the Air Searcher in particular? Around which weight? After all I just want it to be as powerful to allow the submarine to dive in time.

Atlantis quaterly reports for 1948

Quoted from "thesmilingassassin" The missile workshop is not a fabrication shop, its intended to be an assembly shop with parts being premade and transported to the ship. I was imagine that it would be something of that sort.

New Designs and Refits of the Greek Fleet

Well this has been an excellent ocasion to experimentation. I was afraid of make any number increase much. Now I have much more range on a better speed so I will consider this a lesson learned. Quoted French thinking on this matter favors small submarines, with their underwater mobility maximized at the cost of all other factors, including striking power. I had a similar idea but in the order of go deep to avoid any conflict. Now I realize that no matter how deep you go if you emerge just a few ...

Atlantis quaterly reports for 1948

As I say before I this is not my area of knowledge. I didn't think about those variables. Either I know about the american ships or the WW's russian one. Thanks for the information and sorry if I made you waste your time.

Atlantis quaterly reports for 1948

In my humble opinion refit a ship to make this kind of tests is unnecessary. If you want to test missiles I think that a onshore facility would be better since the middle of the ocean is not the best place to be if something go terribly wrong. Plus you could have less cramped labs and workshops. a place in the south's islands could be a good place since you would have plenty of space to fire. Now this is not a topic of which I know much about so I could be wrong.

I reduced the size of the submarine. Maybe the reserve buoyancy have fallen too low but I think I could make it higher.

Project M2A1 Greek Corvette

Well I made use of the block coefficient to reduce the displacement. I also increased the size of the ship. About the ahead throw weapon I am sure that a Mousetrap like system is the best option. A greek design one I think.

Project M2A1 Greek Corvette

I didn't make changes to the misc weight (although i reduce it in 30t) since this is more of a preview than a final design. I am still thinking which ASW weapon I will use. The Mousetrap analogue have some disadvantages as you point out. Could the range change between fixed ranges? Would a system as the hedgehog be to disadvantageous in a ship of this size?

Project M2A1 Greek Corvette

Quoted Edit: The ship is already unther 499t. After some experimentation I get what you were meaning. About what you said Brock, I will take some time to experimentation. I am keeping the displacement dow 499 since I pretend to pump this ones out as fast as possible. The sub chaser idea calls my attention.

Project M2A1 Greek Corvette

I am happy to read some opinions about this. I have the feeling that it went unnoticed the first time. Quoted <img src="https://wesworld.jk-clan.de/wcf/icon/quoteS.png" alt="" style="font-size: 1.1em;" /> Quoted Quoted Fuel, ammunition & stores: 241 tons, 33,8 % One third of the vessel’s mass being fuel, ammunition, and stores is perhaps a bit excessive. It’s a point I’ve been called on over the years and I generally try to keep the percentage for warships down to 20%. Carrying excessive bunkers...

Welcome to wesworld!

I have one last question (I hope ) before I can start the Q2 report. want to use the old AA batteries of the Ares Class. Should I wait until the refit ends or can I consider them available?
