Re: ETS Loudenboomer VS EMS SmallWimp Class.

Interesting question. Is 2 Hippers worth 1 Bismarck. I think? I dont even know where to start with this. I think in Germany's case maybe 2 25000 ship with 6-15" would be worth more than 1 Bismarck even if it was virtually un-armoured. This only because Germany had more of a 'fleet in being' thing go...

Re: Interesting what if: No Stalingrad

Tungstan and the like you mean? Should be okay with everthing else. Usual shortages of fuel, but coal and steel would be no problems. I would think that a large portion of the Ukraine would be held. Synthetic fuel plants would be taking up some of the slack in fuel production as no doubt Poeltsi oil...

Re: Interesting what if: No Stalingrad

Maybe a stalemate. But given time, I believe the Germans could have properly developed their 'FireBrigades'' and eliminated the requiremnt for a traditional occupation. I would some sought of armistice or something, maybe the over throw of Stalin. If the timeline is extented into late 45 early 46 an...

Re: Wreck salvage

I respect that RF. But I think differently. The actuall wreck really doesnt look that bad. Much better than the Titanic. I think that being a Battleship it would retain a certain level of structural strength. Who Knows. My argument would be to Raise the Musashi. It being theorised that she is in one...

Re: Interesting what if: No Stalingrad

Absolutely. In the Last half of 42 Germany would have to let go alot of ground. Not simply abondon it, but a fighting withdrawal. I think in late 42 Rostov had become well organised into a logistics hub. With effective limited counter attacks, coupled with a fighting withdrawals to pre-prepared defe...

Re: Wreck salvage

Totally agree with those who would raise these ships. People jump up and down on relgious grounds, or what have you, on them being war graves etc. Lets face it, all remains would be gone by now, and these things (such as Bismarck) wont be around forever. And I would think that if you polled the orig...

Re: H-44 The Queen of the sea?

I dont understand the vilification I am recieveing for asking this question. I mean, I posted it in the 'Hypothetical' section of this forum. If you have a problem with it why not just not reply? I think if any country would build something like this it would have been Germany. Probaly more as Hitle...

Re: Interesting what if: No Stalingrad

How do you figure? If the Volga had of been reached and the entire German Army turned over to the defensive USSR would run out of men before getting anywhere near Berlin. I'm talking about an elastic defense doctrine. Allowing the German Generals a free hand to withdraw and attack when and where the...

Re: Interesting what if: No Stalingrad

I think the only way Germany could have reduced the USSR to its knees was to go over to the offensive once the Volga had been reached. Not entering Stalingrad would be a good start. Politically impossible to do, and the Loss of vast amount of hard won territory would be required (Hitler just would n...

Re: H-44 The Queen of the sea?

Surely, versus any conteparary battleship there would be a big bout.

H-44 The Queen of the sea?

What would happen if she met an Iowa? A Yamato? No doubt the UK would be trying to get rid of her no matter the Cost. But the Germans would be protecting her no matter the cost. If she (or He?) was christened the 'Fuhruer' (spelling?) then one would think that the entire luftwaffe would be in perman...

Re: Phalanx Cwis

I thought that all military vessels always kept there defences up even in times of peace. To counter surprise attacks etc.

Do they keep systems such as the phalanx offline till a specific order to activate them is recieved?

Re: Phalanx Cwis

No doubt the thing works, but so far its record aint to good. No missiles, and four hits to the mighty Mo! Wonder why it was off in the Gulf onboard the Stark. Thats one stretch of water that i would have all defences switched on and the hull sand-bagged! From the videos of seen the system is fantas...
