To address the difficulties of movement in the region of Loreto and the upper Amazon, Peru plans to construct the following types of craft. The *Lancha de desembarco de Infanteria *is primarily a troop carrier, to be used by the Batallóns de Infantería de Marina Fluvial of the Infantería de Marina del Perú; the *Lancha de desembarco de Apoyo *is a support vessel on the same hull.

Additionally, the "Main belt does not fully cover magazines and engineering spaces" isn't on the original ship, so I suspect something fiddly's wrong with that - I'd have to look into that in more detail to figure out what it is.

I think

Grau's secondaries are simmed as eighteen 120mm guns in six triple turrets - but if I remember correctly, the ship actually hastwelve120mm guns in sixtwinturrets. The spare gun in each turret was simmed in as a way of showing that there was some extra play in the design for, say, extra automation equipment etc.

I thinkGrauis the only case of that happening to a Peruvian ship, but there are others elsewhere in WW...

Okay - but in the original sim I do not find an reference to miscellaneous weight set aside to reflect that. Most of the misc weight pertained to the aviation facilities, and I had to play with those to find enough for the electronics. Has it been an oversight from day one?

Looking back at the encyclopedia posts, it has as a note:

## Quoted

Secondary armament = 3 X HA/LAtwin turretson each beam.

Torpedoes are mounted in 2 quad turrets, 1 to each beam

So the commentary is there. The guns are twins, but they've been simmed as triple mounts...

Basically, to fix it, just re-sim the ship with 12x120mm secondaries in 6x2 configuration, and then add in the miscellaneous weight you'd gain.

I mean, this isn't a really big deal, since you've got the note already in the encyclopedia, and you're not changing the guns during the proposed refit. It's just that

Actually it is

Oh. *That's* what that note meant. I couldn't fathom the meaning. And by fixing it I gain some misc weight, rather than losing more. I misunderstood your original intent. I'll work on it.

However, it does increase the overall hull strength value from 1.01 to 1.04, and increases the light tonnage figure from 14,339 to 14,371. It also increases the stability from 1.10 to 1.11 – which comes as no surprise.

Have I missed something? Or should I allow some values to drift in order to correct the ‘triples’ comment? If so, which?

But if you have specific ideas to better distribute the weights I'd be happy to consider. It's not going to change the cost of the refits and it might allow me to include a couple of Inca Kola machines on the mess decks. :D
