You're right, the relationship isn't especially mature, but there had been some interaction via exercises beforehand. I chose to order relatively benign ships from the Nords for that reason - it should not alarm the average Nord to learn that their shipyards are building hospital ships, minesweepers, and sloops for the Bharatis... ...even if it means that the Bharatis can then focus on landing ships and submarines. But let's not dig that far. Thanks for the input, Brock. I'll await other respons...

Winter's been knocking me down and taking my lunch money. Over spring break I've been covering for my boss at work, and covering for another farm at home - NOT RELAXING. So I need your input on the Nordmark/Bharat deal, because Valles ain't around now. I can back this up with PMs, but to summarize, the deal was: -Bharat contributed to the Nordmark civilian atomic program; no military function was contemplated. -Bharat paid in cash for some services -Bharat opened up domestic markets to Nordmark ...

I'd been contemplating building a few more "kits" of that patrol boat I re-assembled on Titicaca and assembling them at Iquitos, but I don't think I ever got around to it.

Peru??

This is the less-old LCI design I have. It's 8 t heavier than what I allocated in my spreadsheet and I don't know why. Is this SS3 output? I kinda think it might be. ----- Enter ship name, Enter country Enter ship type laid down 1941 Displacement: 277 t light; 284 t standard; 325 t normal; 358 t full load Dimensions: Length (overall / waterline) x beam x draught (normal/deep) (160.37 ft / 157.48 ft) x 22.97 ft x (5.25 / 5.68 ft) (48.88 m / 48.00 m) x 7.00 m x (1.60 / 1.73 m) Armament: 3 - 0.79" ...

Peru??

1/4. Having found my spreadsheet, it appears that President Ramon Castilla and Biru were to be identical conversions of civilian transports into military usage. 600 t was allocated for each job, implying a 2,400 t light displacement. I don't see any corresponding designs on my computer. So there'd be two transports in service. My suspicion is that I allocated a tonnage cost and intended to design the ship around it later - which appears not to have happened. 2 - Consuella class tug #2's name is ...

Looks like he was sticking closely to the program I'd been working on until 1944 ended. Even as the Iberian neighbor, I don't object to a do-over for 1/45 or thereabouts. I guess Brock-as-Chile and whoever's doing Italy these days might have a stake in things, though.

Persia, 1947

So that's Persia for 1947. Sloops were the story. I'll update the encyclopedia soon-ish, which might require me to tweak ship counts for all I know. The ocean-going sloop count seems off in some fashion but I can't put a finger on how.

I'm going to see if I can catch up over the holidays. Persia and Bharat are not too difficult, but Iberia's a bit of a bloated pain in the butt. I don't disagree with Hood's observations about sim health, but from my perspective, it's done at the end of 1950 anyway. Cheers.

Blah

Between a frantic summer of work stuff and the erratic, months-long decline in my mother's health, my heart just isn't with sims these days. I'll check in occasionally, but I don't anticipate actively participating in the next while.

Life Extension Refit Part II

That's why I disposed of her. Best I could do was get her in line with the slightly larger Akbars - which had been 50% rebuilt in the mid-thirties.

Life Extension Refit Part II

Sorry something is amiss. I can't see why there'd be such a problem. Wouldn't surprise me if some of the dimensions had third or fourth decimal places, though, including the BC; the design was, after all, built in the treaty era. I'll poke around and see if I can find the original sim, but it's been eleven years and three or four computers, so...
