If you have had a look at the offsite website, then you will realise that Solarium AU is very well advanced.
No justified social or industrial path?
What Tobius has not noticed is that all of those people he goes on about do not exist. The USA does not exist. Actually the Washington Treaty does not exist. It is the Geneva Arms Limitation Treaty. All of the rubbish you have banged on about is solely in your imagination. It is hard for the US to be hostile if it does not exist.
Have you READ Harry Turtledove? Your departure point and his are identical. The result has to be a hostile United States.
Referring everything back to the Real Time Line, presupposes that any part of that history exists. The moment I gave you the link to the full offsite address, everybody should have stopped mouthing off and gone and found out what the parameters for further discussion might be.
Unless your departure point is 1792, the whole house of cards collapses.
Incidentally I pointed out that there was no Mahan, Colbert and no Fisher, However for the British carrier redos, there has to be a Eugene Ely, a Glenn Curtiss, a William Moffett, a George Cockburn et al
. You don't get proper through deck British flattops without them
Do any of you realise that the figures you are quoting at me, 400,000 tons (actually less than 200,000), 3 carriers, do not happen instantly? The period those ships I have chosen to share the drawings of reflect the period 1919-1939.
A carrier will not be decommissioned during any battleship holiday. The economics do not justify laying it up.
Quite frankly I do not give a toss for your comments unless they are about the ship drawings I have posted.
I have chosen to let others speak about the drawings, but if you insist on technical criticism, your islands and gun placements foul take off and land on runs and eat up hardstand space.
I got told off by the powers that be for having a go at other peoples concepts of reality in their Alternate Realities. The same applies here.
That is a fair point. (See below.) I have not been told this. Just that my rendition skills are subpar. (See below.)
Actually Tobius you are banned from commenting in any thread that I may create now or in the future. Your sort of know-it-all posting just pisses people off. We do not have to justify ourselves to you. Stick to your cartoon thread.
Okay. Again fair enough.
