  1. Ideal German tank?

    I wouldn't be so sure that the turret in your design would be able to fit the 105mm gun; sure, most 90mm-armed tanks could fit a 105mm gun instead, but that's because the 105mm gun used would be the L7, and the L7 is based on the Ordinance QF 20pdr gun (84mm) bored out to 105mm, and was designed...
  2. Sir John Valentine Carden survives.

    Honestly, they're probably going to give the captured German tanks to friendly government in exile forces (or as aid to the Soviets); it'll be an enormous hassle for British forces to handle tanks designed by a different nation; even the measurement systems are different. Far better to send...
  3. The Pale Horse: The Northwest Montana Insurgency and its Aftermath (1987-2002)

    The CSA probably wouldn't really be that concerned about the IJN, to be honest; they don't have a coastline on the Pacific to worry about, and not too much for their allies, either. Probably like the Soviet Far Eastern fleet; just a smallish force of primarily submarines and corvettes/fast...
  4. Sir John Valentine Carden survives.

    Eh, I think that there's a pretty decent chance that the Germans will switch to the long 50mm gun in their tanks earlier than IOTL; the combination of the Valiant's speed, armor, and availability is going to put greater pressure on them compared to IOTL, even before the 57mm gun is introduced...
  5. Sir John Valentine Carden survives.

    Also, I'm pretty sure there's no real need for a 32pdr/3.7in gun armed tank destroyer, to be honest; the 75mm Vickers HV in the Victor and the 17pdr in various tank destroyers, possible "Victor Fireflies"/"Victor Challengers" should probably be enough against the Germans, especially if we see...
  6. Sir John Valentine Carden survives.

    Weren't Vickers producing Valiants armed with the short 6pdr with the 43 calibers long barrel by first quarter 1941 or was that started later in April-May? Either way, hopefully they'll be sent to the Middle East; that's where the fighting is after all... :/ Also hmmm, hopefully they're going...
  7. Sir John Valentine Carden survives.

    Wasn't the plan to use tanks other than the Valiant like the Cruiser Mk. IV and Crusader as the basis for the self-propelled artillery and self-propelled anti-aircraft guns, using the Meadows engine? Also I think you forgot to threadmark the latest update.
  8. Best Anti-Aircraft Guns on warships during WW2

    Would a 57mm with VT fuzes possibly be better than the 3" in the near post-war era? 57mm shells are small enough that they're able to fire automatically, after all; just depends whether the proximity fuze is small enough to keep a usable amount of explosive charge. Seems like it could work...
  9. Sir John Valentine Carden survives.

    Would they get Valiants or would they instead receive Crusaders and other Nuffield tanks? If the British like the Valiant so much, they might decide to keep Valiants for British divisions and send Crusaders as lend-lease.
  10. WI/AHC: Battleship equivalent of a "seventy-four"

    Well, there's no reason why they couldn't fit larger guns on the smaller ship; a pair of 23kton battleships armed with six 16-inch guns (three twin turrets) each would probably be a match for a 35kton vessel; especially if they were able to squeeze extra tonnage in via rules-lawyering or just...
  11. WI/AHC: Battleship equivalent of a "seventy-four"

    The way to have something like that happen would probably be via doing something like the WNT in Dread Nought but the Fury of the Seas, where capital ships of a certain tonnage count as less tonnage than their actual tonnage for treaty purposes (ships 23ktons or less count as 15ktons allotment...
  12. Stupid Luck and Happenstance, Thread III

    To be honest, I'm not really sure why the Chileans decided to attack in the first place; the Germans and their allies have proved that they are able and more importantly are willing to intervene in conflicts in the past, (Mexico, South Africa, Korea) and unlike the Chinese the Chileans know that...
  13. Stupid Luck and Happenstance, Thread III

    Probably not going to be OTL specs; previously the Germans (or at least the Bohemians) had been testing an autoloading 128mm main gun which is likely to be the main armament of the ATL Leopard II. Good chance they'll use composite armor rather than the spaced/high hardness of the early variants...
  14. Stupid Luck and Happenstance, Thread III

    Even stranger that the Germans would allow an American company to join up in the development of the notHarrier given how they are much more explicit rivals...
  15. Stupid Luck and Happenstance, Thread III

    What plane is the Focke-Wulf FD121 based on?
