The 8"/55 Rapid Fire Gun & Turret

When machines no longer need human imput to fire a gun I fear our end is near, so I for one am very happy to see that!

Chinese Ships for 1948

Nothing like a discussion on icebreakers to remind me that I forgot to place my own design in my encyclopedia..... I too am pleasantly surprised at the fact that the Bohai Sea can get iced up significantly.

Peruvian News and Events, 1948

OOC: Colombia, had it actually received the offer to inspect the craft, would also have taken the Peruvians up on the offer.

I'd say Colombia and Turkey would be as historical while Atlantis would likely have participants in most if not all events. Byzantium could take the spot of a few historical events won by or participated by Turks.

Olympics

Atlantis, Colombia and Turkey would be participating. The republic of Byzantium would likely have some as well though I wouldn't expect much from them in the standings other than perhaps a few surprises.

A Question of Images

I wouldn't write off sites like this, WoW is starting to get gimmicky and coin hungry. That tends to drive away players looking for realism and fair play. When you start to hear stories of destroyers pening the citadels of battleships you know things are off. At any rate people will still need sites like this to release their creative works.

Russian Ships for 1948

To me 60 aircraft on 12,000 tons doesn't seem off, when you consider U.S.S. Wasp with an additional 2,000 tons displacement carried 20 more aircraft than the Russian design. Full load displacement on the historical Wasp is 1,200 tons more than the Fidonisi which carries a much lighter armament. The more important question is what type of hangar does Findonisi have, open or enclosed. THAT will have more effect on the airgroup size than tonnage. After all, Japan got 48 aircraft on an 8,000 ton Ryu...

A Question of Images

Thanks BigRich for the additional site info, that one was not listed on wiki and it sounds like something I might like to use. I agree that photo bucket's decision to charge for 3rd party hosting was a bad move, kinda like using a sledge hammer to remove old stock in a china shop. While I've seen error messages on the internet when looking for pictures I have never seen it on the scale I have since Photo bucket made this choice. its beyond me why they would do such a drastic change instead of tr...

Belgian Submarine Design Competition

When I think coastal or ocean going I think more in terms of the role rather than size, which itself is usually dictated by the role and the specifications set by the nation building it. Atlantis for example labels subs with longer range fleet subs so naturally shorter range subs fall into the coastal category. Range and armament dictate the size of the ship but role dictates the range. Atlantis sort of mirrored the British desire to have subs fast enough to screen the battle fleet and, as the B...
