Wow. Where do I begin? 1. Engineering wise, there is this: a. corrosion b. toxicity c. terrorism And where will you recruit a ship's crew to operate a piece of untested highly experimental machinery, that from the descriptions I read, makes a Fukushima reactor (GE light water reactors that some engi...

PLAN DOG: SYNOPSIS: THE KYUSHU PROBLEM, IT IS BETTER TO GIVE THAN TO RECEIVE. One of the things about Pearl Harbor that makes it so easy, is that the enemy (the USN) concentrates all the targets into a nice cramped harbor with one channel into and out of it. The Imperial Japanese Navy is another mat...

I still don't understand why you'd convert a twenty year old run down battlecruiser, let alone a German one that's been a pain to maintain her entire life. HMS Furious was never an ideal design, but it was acceptable because she was available on the slipway, so she could be finished on a reasonable...

THAT is why the Langley is skipped. The USN in this AU now has three (German) battlecruisers of its own to convert and a plan to convert them.

wasn't Jupiter/Langley designed and converted before these ships? so they should not be the first? FLUFF: HOW DOES THE USN ACQUIRE THE USS DELAWARE AND HER SISTERS? Blackmail. Here is the RTL (and AU) situation when Wilson, (regarded by some modern US military historians as completely incompetent i...

in your image, you list that this ship is the first 'purpose designed plane carrier' Which can be explained in 2 ways: the 2 ways I described in my previous post. Purpose designed in conversion. There are no two ways to interpret the note. SMS Derfflinger arrives at the Philadelphia yards as a batt...

What I mean, purpose designed kind of means the ship is designed from the keel up as an aircraft carrier. Alternatively, you could say it means the conversion was designed to be an aircraft carrier. In other words, either you say this ship was designed as an aircraft carrier, or the earlier convers...

Is it weird that I wonder how a conversion of an earlier ship can be the first purpose designed carrier? what would the earlier ships be? designed as toasters and suddenly they were aircraft carriers? Not that I want one to go back and read the earlier fluff that explains what I drew ... but if thi...
