Notice!

In light of hostilities in Asia, I've decided to edit this report to lay down two of those subchasers I was going to build in Q2/44 for Indochina. Instead of one vessel every quarter starting in Q2, I'm now building two vessels per quarter starting in Q1...

Additionally, one of the first two Arabe-class aviso-drageurs (and one of the second pair laid down this quarter) will be delivered to Indochina upon completion, rather than to the Marine Nationale as planned. From there on out, two ships will be delivered to France every year, and two to Indochina.

EDIT 7/9/13: Due to the discovery of ships not previously listed in the encyclopedia, I've transferred fifty subchasers to the Patrouille Navale, and updated ship lists.
