Commonwealth Adjustment

Oz's industrial reports have been hammered out and brought almost up to date. Giving the board a chance to find problems with them before I move forward any further. Foxy had a Q1/45 report, but the comments on it were....contentious, so I elected to do the entire year.

Burnelli CB-27 Aigaion

Something to clarify, which Hood alluded to, but I'll say it outright - the CB-27 is a Canadian design, based on all the Burnelli lifting-body projects I've found roles for elsewhere in Canadian aviation; it's exact capability and whether or not Oz adopts it for it's own needs is up for discussion, but my long-term plans for the RCAF has always had them in the strategic bomber role. I'm open to input on how to put the stats together (deep Aviation is not my area of expertise), but in the end, it...

Commonwealth Adjustment

on further contemplation, i've decided to rename the Charon class to mimic Canadian practice of tribal names for it's large destroyers. I've dredged up a fair amount of names, and the Charons will be christened as; Koori Goorie Murri Murrawarri (Fair warning for Hood- the RN doesn't appear to have an HMS Maori, and the RAN will be wanting that name for a future ship)

Still debating the best approach for the DD modernizations, but I'm leaning towards the more expensive option for the additional range they get, among other benefits. In the meantime, working on refit options for the Auckland class light cruisers. First is a barebones life extension with basic AA and electronics upgrades, second is a more elaborate reengining and replaces the main armament with Canadian automatic 7.5" twin mounts from the PEI Quoted Auckland, Australia Patrol Cruiser laid down 1...

Commonwealth Adjustment

Quoted from "Hood" I am loathe to retconn too many British equipment sales to Australia so I'm focusing on home-built items and keeping everything reasonably modest. My kneejerk reaction for a lot of this is "buy Canadian", which generally falls in line with my overall feeling that the Commonwealth should be pursuing commonality whenever feasible, but I also want to make sure I don't default to Canadian too much simply because of my own bias. Another thing to consider is both Canada and Oz had ...

I actually did consider that, and was thinking that the upper deckhouse in question was narrower than the deck section protruding aft from the hull break, which would be closer to the full width of the hull. I've got a couple of huge files with parts and inspiration drawn from a lot of people who've drawn in the same/similar style and scale, and I don't always remember where I pulled them from originally at this point. I try and do enough work to make things as much original work as anything els...

The RCN still exists

I don't think there's a way of indicating the type of stern overhang RN carriers had in springsharp. The length is determined entirely by ship's structure, whereas those overhangs are superstructure. Draught is an artifact of using the Tenacious as source material and forgetting to adjust, I'll fix that. Similarly, the 40% forecastle is the same percentages used for the Tenacious, which is odd, since both are supposed to be open-hangar designs.
