Lieutenant (7/13)



  1. A plan of the New York does exist, but where the original source lies is beyond my knowledge, though the best place to start is with Howard Chapelle, as it was within one of his books that I discovered a copy of the plan.
  2. @More Indica Please have you not kept up with the winners of the last poll? All 3 of the leading vote winners for 3rd rates will be making an appearance.
  3. I think he just fired a warning shot across your bow LeB. Or at least I think that was the attempt, as the shot fell well short of the mark.
  4. indeed, it seems as if plunging fire from shells or bomb angles (again, plunging factor) did more to accelerate ship destruction than torpedoes. I would imagine it had something to do with minimal protection on horizontal surfaces, made only worse with what had to be a rather one-sided thought process on where the most damage would be received: vertical surfaces. It didn't help that the British had a very dangerous flaw in their turrets for loading the guns, something they took great pains not to repeat in the years after The Great War. That said, look at any of the combat operations involving catastrophic sinkings by torpedo during WW2. Loss only seems to be great where procedures weren't followed (Taiho, Barham, Shinano, Indianapolis): Ark Royal, Eagle, and Wasp had fairly minimal casualties for the hits received.
  5. if a game like BattleStations: Midway, or a development of Empire Earth's game engine were made with Cold War era in mind I'd be totally down with it.
  6. honestly looks more like a SoDak, than the Iowa, on account of the chubbiness.
  7. Devs might consider it, but iirc from a historical standpoint, that particular form of turret arrangement was ineffective for multiple reasons, hence why it wasn't repeated in future classes. A closer look at the turret arrangement: Quoted from Wikipedia: Kearsarge had two double turrets, with two 13 in (330 mm)/35 caliber guns and two 8 in (203 mm)/40 caliber guns each, stacked in two levels.[5] The guns and turret armor were designed by the Bureau of Ordnance, while the turret itself was designed by the Bureau of Construction and Repair. This caused the guns to be mounted far back in the turret, making the ports very large. Admiral William Sims claimed that as a result, a shell fired into the port could reach the magazines below, disabling the guns.
  8. I won't presume to speak for the devs but I'm not sure this is where they would intend to go. They seem to be mostly focused on parts of history that don't get a lot of coverage.
  9. Laptops have come a long way for gaming. My last laptop could play anything available. My guess is his issue is hardware related, or he needs a fresh install. I'm leaning toward the former being the case. Naval Action isn't exactly low spec friendly.
  10. I was expecting Temeraire to be Temeraire, not Redoubtable, ah well, cheers.
  11. She is lovely, though perhaps some teasers of Montanes, Wreker, or Temeraire? Or were you working on Redoubtable before those three?
  12. Great read, excellent post, but belongs in the history subsection more than anything.
