Peru??

With regards to the restriction of Peruvian navigation on the Amazon, nothing was ever set in stone as Peru at that time was NPC but it was generally agreed between players in the region that Peru's navigation would be restricted to civilian transport only as a result of the Peruvians adventurism in Leticia. No time limit or details were given however. Colombia wished to push for territory across the river from Leticia and further extend the southern "foot' down to the Brazilian border near Esti...

Moving Forward

Well to be honest my own lack of participation really comes from the insane amount of work I have been doing to my new house, which is starting to slow down. I will make an attempt to start catching up and most likely will have more time on my hands after Christmas.

Dutch ships desappeared....

Yup, not just those ships but U.S.S. Houston has shown signs of salvage along with HMS Repulse and Prince of wales. HMS Exeter is also gone(!) while HMS Electra and HMS Encounter are almost completely salvaged as well. The U.S.S. Perch is also missing and even WW1 German and British wrecks have been pillaged. This actually makes my blood boil to be honest..... https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/n…enging-java-sea

Royal Navy Ships for 1948

I would suspect an auto loading gun would have to have a stronger barrel given that barrel life will decrease with increased RoF, most of the wear I would think would be the gun liner. I don't recall ever reading about older barrels being reused in an auto loading set up but who knows, it could be possible with smaller guns.

Cockerill T-22 Tank Destroyer Family

Quoted from "Brockpaine" I'd specifically avoided mentioning the Ikv-72 earlier in this thread since I've given some very serious consideration about cloning it. But since Bruce brought it up... yeah, the Ikv-72 was actually the vehicle I was thinking of when I first brought up the idea of the "hyper-light ambush sniper" earlier in this thread. your not the only one sir!

1940s IJN designs

From Wiki: "In shipbuilding, the scantling refers to the collective dimensions of the framing (apart from the keel) to which planks or plates are attached to form the hull. The word is most often used in the plural to describe how much structural strength in the form of girders, I-beams, etc. is in a given section. The scantling length refers to the structural length of a ship. In shipping, a "full scantling vessel" is understood to be a geared ship, that can reach all parts of its own cargo spa...

Philippine News and Events, 1947

Quoted from "Rooijen10" I am pretty sure that the DEI is to Japan's South and not Japan's West so I do not see the Japanese trade routes to the DEI traveling parallel to the Chinese coast. Actually south west and if your not sailing near the Chinese coast (at least near the North east coast) I'd have to assume that you deliberately route your merchant ships away from China. It would also seem that you only have trade with the DEI? No trade at all with the many other Asian country's besides Chin...

Philippine News and Events, 1947

Quoted from "Rooijen10" You just don't read it the way I do and to me it says what it says. Well we all don't have the same tea leaves to read apparently Quoted from "Rooijen10" To be honest, right now, all I can think of is stuff that comes into Japan that costs money and does nothing to improve Japan's economy... On the other hand, you make it sound like all goods being imported to/exported from Japan must be transported by Japanese flagged ships which seems unlikely to me. Flagged or not, un...

Philippine News and Events, 1947

Quoted To me saying "Two-thousand-ton submarines aren't very useful in the coastal waters of the Philippine archipelago" while making no mention of the many trade routes the Philippines has with other nations and the very serious threat that those submarines pose to those routes does that. All supposition on your part.... Quoted Also has more ASW assets to protect those needs and they would try to get those needs from close by so there is less route length to protect. I do not see why that is n...

Philippine News and Events, 1947

I don't see anything in Bruce's comments to suggest that the Philippines does not rely on outside trade. That said the Philippines is not as industrialised as Japan so Japan's needs are much greater. I also find it highly suspect that Japan would not diversify its trade sources in times of peace, there is only so much of the pie in the DEI and elsewhere with reguards to trade. Speaking of the DEI, the trade routes to Japan seem far more tenuous than those that are between the Philippines and the...

Question to the Mods and other players

Quoted from "parador" I didn't found a link to this fact may be you can present it for me. In the post i found, you didn't built them as a drydock but you have mentioned that they will be not used as drydocks so it's okay. Its way back, I'm unsure where it is so I'll have to look for it but suffice it to say I did build a submarine facility at Palinerus built around one type 2 and four type 0 drydocks used for ship building and when they are not building subs they can be used as they are simmed...

Question to the Mods and other players

Atlantis already has sub pens similar to the historical German sub pens and I built them as drydocks given the fact that we can use drydocks to build ships. Unfortunately they have been in a state of constant building since completion and I haven't had much chance to use them for refits. I'll also have to extend them if I want to refit future designs as they get larger.
