Hi K, Fair point, but unless we're assuming GD's Stalinist dictatorship, surely the structural strength issue is going to rear it's head good and early in the design process (to be fair, it would under a Stalinist dictatorship, too, but it'd be made to proceed anyway, I'd guess, in the same manner a...

Hi Krakatoa, To quote from the navweaps article: Starting with the Forrestal class, the size of the carriers meant that stress requirements forced the abandonment of the external hangar and hangar deck as strength deck concepts. A shallow hull of that size is a design impracticality. In the Forresta...

Hi Krakatoa, A quick question ... wouldn't Algarve have commissioned a smaller, say, 45-60,000 ( Midway - Forrestal -class-sized) carrier before jumping straight to something midway between a Kitty Hawk and a Nimitz precisely to avoid this sort of problem? That's not to say it isn't a well-executed ...

Hi Krakatoa, You see, this is why your comment confused me. In my own particular case (I recognise that the initial comment may not have been directed at me; I include this only to clarify my reasoning) I find myself commenting on GD's work when it's exceptionally good (by GD's standards) or if I've...

To be honest, my take on it generally is that I comment on the drawings as presented. Hence, GD's, whether they're repeats or not tend to get "this is a good drawing", because if they were good the first time around, they're probably good the second time around. And yes, Weisman's drawing was good t...

One thing I would suggest, if you're going down this route, is not to have a split secondary battery. Historically, they've been used in situations where a suitable DP gun isn't available or because the specified secondary battery is too cumbersome to use in an AA role - while both 16" and 14" fit t...

Hi TF38, Umm, I'm not really sure how to answer this - I'd argue, for instance, that in 1941 the KM probably had better fire control than the RN (I'm sure I read that early WWII RN fire control was of approximately the same standard as USN fire control in the 1920s) but at the same time, 1941 USN fi...

Oh, absolutely - the stuff I've put out has either become better or better explained as a result of Thiel's comments. I guess that's what mentoring, officially or not, is about, isn't it?

@Hood, To be honest, I've generally liked your work, however, I'm generally not one to say anything unless I have something to say (any examination of my posting history will probably reveal a series of frankly nitpicky comments, mainly because I'm one of life's pedants. C'est la vie...) @Krakatoa F...

Ha-ha, finally caught up to the birthday thread again, and on a fortuitous day too: Happy birthday Ethan! And also, to everybody I forgot: (yes, yes, I fail at ShipBucket, I already know ;)) Rickdog, Raxar, Scifibug, Shippy2013, Heuhen, Krakatoa, Imperialist and Cascadia (even though from the sounds...
