Further, there will be no misunderstandings from other folks about the use and ownership of this alleged icebreaker.

Partial coal firing desired because of high coal availability in the Far North.

Even if the icebreaker will be built for the civilian market, it left the back door that Russia can requisition civilian vessels in wartime at any time. And suddenly the ice-breaker is still in service.

In my view there are really only two possibilities:

a) the awful way to rewrite all reports (I do not necessarily require)

or

b) the repayment on the same period (without building a ship !!!!!!!!). In my opinion, the repayment can be done by a partial closure of the factories. (e.g., they could be on strike or there is an accident in a factory; accident or sabotage ? All base for a storyline)

When it comes to voting i would vote for solution b).

suitable for use on far north rivers, with a shorter range to reduce their strategic impact.

And as for "back door" use, I have 7 ocean-going icebreakers already. I have had some of them for about 15 sim years. They aren't set up for attacking anyone. The ones I've proposed here don't have deck armor.

If it was up to a vote I go with this option.

If Wes+Shin+Hoo agree the icebreaker idea's okay, then I'll go along with that. I don't see that Option 1 (the BC sinking) is a viable in-game option to deal with the tonnage shortfall.

Stuart, is this acceptable to you?

Noted, though as I said the Mod's will deal with the issue.

Yup.

As Stuart said he already has the 7 Icebreakers he needs to keep his northern routes open so I don't see any additional benifit other than storyline wise the two new Icebreakers ensure those lanes are open in the case of one of the 7 (budgeted for) is sunk or in the yards for repairs.
