naval projects for Atlantis, 1948

You would be correct, these are test ships only and would be used in sheltered coastal waters in either northern Venezuela or Mauritania, most likely the former.

Ships on market

Perhaps a merger of players/sims could be arranged if 7 players is slow for them, it seems slow for us most of the time. We could always reset back to the year 1918 or even earlier (pre WW-1) when this timeline ends.

Ships on market

First of all I don't see anyone being "so desirous of exploiting NPC's", please read my post again and secondly no ones even mentioned rules for selling to NPC's so why bring that up?

Ships on market

While I understand the noble urge to refrain from selling to NPC's willy nilly just to make a profit I find it highly unrealistic that a nation such as Peru would simply discard 6 year old ships no matter what my in character Colombian feelings are. I understand that a nation such as the U.S. or Britain would discard such heavily used vessels (in the case of the U.S. they would be in inactive reserve), they have the resources to change their fleets composition to changing world threats. How hard...

Makes more sense to me to put them in reserve rather than sell them.

Varyag-class Cruiser

I don't think it should be too hard to fit 3x twin 130mm and 3 twin 75mm mounts per side, Varyag is roughly similar to U.S.S Salem in length. Salems 3" battery if reduced could have allowed another pair of 5" turrets per side IMO, Varyag just swaps a possible 4th 3" mount for a 5.1" turret.

Varyag-class Cruiser

I'm curious as to what the 4x2 version looks like. If they are all in one fleet having three ships with 4x2 rather than four ships of 3x2 shouldn't really matter if you can produce something a little tougher in the armour department. That said I like these ships, the armour is sufficient against heavy cruisers and the armament is superior and the surface capability being more of a secondary role makes the opposite argument in terms of hull numbers, more hulls to provide an AA screen.

Sounds interesting. I'm partial to "Trident circuit" myself.

Burnelli CB-27 Aigaion

In short I can understand the reasoning behind using this particular design, as you say to make better use of commonwealth assets, but the specs as originally envisioned were considerably ahead of what Britain was using. Add in that the Westminster design is already pushing that envelope ever so slightly and the Aigaion dwarfs that design and things can tend to spiral out of control on the "one upsmanship" game.

Burnelli CB-27 Aigaion

That would bring it into B-52 sized payload and still quite high when looking at British bombers available.

Burnelli CB-27 Aigaion

I think you may have a typo on the specs for the Burnelli CB-27 Aigaion. A bomb load of 89,000 lb (40,370 kg) seems abnormally high for the period, particularily when compared to other wesworld designs. BCAC (Vickers) Type 497 Westminster B.Mk.I 56,000lb (25,401 kg) Burnelli CB-27 Aigaion bombload up to 89,000 lb (40,370 kg) Nakajima B-10 (Ki-96) 19,841 lbs (9000 kg) Heinkel He177 13,227 lbs (6,000 kg) Consolidated B-32 Dominator 20,000 lbs (9071 kg) Boeing B-29 Superfortress 20,000 lbs (9071 kg...
