New Designs and Refits of the Greek Fleet

Yes. Maybe I am being to greedy. Is just that I look at all the possibilities and go crazy. In other point I may regret of the gun change but the ship is going to see other minor refits. I will start to be more carefull to my desisions because I have the felling that I am taking decitions too fast about some things. P.S.: I am in bed so If can't publish the update version.

The army of the Kingdom of Greece will adopt the next artillery: Mortars: This is the most complicated topic. The yugoslavian M42 Heavy Mortar is going to be accepted to provide assistance to the more static units as infantry divisions.

Maybe I am being way to confiusing. When I think in a mortar I also imaging the same that you but also this or this. About the medium mortar. A bit of more investigation leadme to decide to eliminate that recuest a reduce the weight on every thing. Some really weir things that I found confused me and now I will edit it.

RE: RE: Competition for new greek artillery

Quoted OOC, I'm not sure I follow your terms here. I'd say a light mortar is something like a 60mm (or potentially even an 81mm) mortar with a weight between 20 to 60 kg. A medium mortar would be a 105mm unit. The weights and calibers suggested imply a weapon of significantly greater size. Can you please clarify? Of course. Since the unique distinction that I found between mortars was an infantry mortar and a heavy mortar. Even the definition of light mortar is unclear. For example, Yugoslavia ...

Greece competition for a new rifle

Mmmmh. Then a bipod is mandatory, even if is not possible to use always. And some semi-autos would have to be delivered to each squadron forcing them to have some accurate fire while maintaining the advantage of moral and on close combat. And we would be back to the markmans i guess. Even in that case t same cartridge will be necessary to not let anyone without of ammunition.

Yes but if you can acquire a FAL in selective fire a semi automatic version would have to be for marksman or snipers. For that task an spesialiced rifel wouldd make it better.

Greece competition for a new rifle

Quoted Mm... if I might be permitted to offer my unsolicited opinion, chambering the FN FAL for 7.5x55 Swiss and 7.92x57 Mauser may be possible, but the results are going to be decidedly mediocre at best. The weight of the rifle will increase dramatically, while the strain on the mechanism will go up. It's not going to be quite as bad weight-wise as, say, a BAR, but it's definitely going the wrong direction. I'd recommend building a few test examples just to show how you can ruin a really good ...
