Well, rather not, it's a private company, evidently the result of an association between Mikoyan and Sukhoi. As of Wong Aeronautics, it's also a fictional private company.I take it MIS is TTL's equivalent to the United Aircraft Corporation, so to speak, assuming MIS stands for "Mikoyan-Sukhoi"? Also, is Wong Aeronautics based on any Chinese aviation stuff IOTL? Finally, as the non-Africans are all dead or already fled, I assume most people who have fled Azania in recent years are (underground) Christians/Muslims amongst the African population?
Well, I have been wondering some much about this lately.@MaskedPickle I'm very sorry to ask here but I am wondering if you ever plan to make your previously suggested "A Huge Sucking Sound" timeline from here a reality: https://www.alternatehistory.com/fo...ould-i-do-after-a-giant-sucking-sound.419122/
Here's your description of it that you posted back in June of 2017: "Donald Trump decides to run in 1988 and wins. Expect it as a spiritual successor and some sort of reboot to a Giant Sucking Sound. Featuring f*cked up Latin America, a hardened Soviet Union and a stronger Europe."
It did reach 47 votes in the poll you posted, just two shy of being tied for first place with this timeline. I just want to know if you will either reboot A Giant Sucking Sound or start this new A Huge Sucking Sound once this timeline reaches its conclusive end. I vaguely remember reading that you said you plan to complete the top three finishers from the poll eventually and that you also plan to make yearly updates to A Giant Sucking Sound. I don't mean to add any pressure onto you, I know how difficult life must be right now with COVID and work. Please know that this is all coming from a fan who greatly looks up to you and your work (A Giant Sucking Sound is my favourite timeline on this site but as a Canadian I wished you specified some things some more like how Thomas Mulcair became PM by the time of Ross Perot's funeral in 2019)
I totally understand and wish all the more luck to you! Thanks for your response and I hope everything goes well for you! I honestly can't believe that A Giant Sucking Sound is over 10 years old but then again I only read it in 2019.Well, I have been wondering some much about this lately.
First, I must say that I have been working on the Franz Ferdinand timeline since 2017, and that all plans have been delayed since. I have a lot to do in real life, such as looking for a new job, writing a novel in French totally disconnected from alternate history and I have plenty of other alternate history projects, ranging from Clovis to Charles De Gaulle. This current timeline demands a lot of time and work, I do it for free, but I still intend it as a leasure and pleasure project, an exercice in worldbuilding and writing.
As of Perot, I must admit that this is now a decade-old project, and that I have already explored it to the best of my abilities ; it still has a lot of defects and things that I wouldn't have done now, but it's behind me, and I want to move on. I have neither the time, the patience or the will to return to an old project of mine, I want to explore other worlds, other timeframes and other points of divergence.
If you wish to read the timeline, you're welcome ; if you want to see what I am up to, you're also free.
Anyway, thank you for this very kind message, should you want to discuss it further, you're welcome.
It's me again who feels old... Thank you very much !I totally understand and wish all the more luck to you! Thanks for your response and I hope everything goes well for you! I honestly can't believe that A Giant Sucking Sound is over 10 years old but then again I only read it in 2019.
It's more of a fringe movement that has been gaining in popularity, restricted to the far right who think that referring themselves to Byzantium is not enough. They are frowned upon by the Orthodox Church of course but tolerated by the government.Hellenism was listed on the religion section for the Greece wikibox. How many of them are there worldwide and are they treated good in Greece?
Thanks. Do you have an approximate number of worshippers?It's more of a fringe movement that has been gaining in popularity, restricted to the far right who think that referring themselves to Byzantium is not enough.

Aircraft carriers are a fixture for the world's biggest superpowers, those who still rely much on military projection, such as Germany, the United States, Australia, Russia, Japan and China. Italy, France, Greece, the Hashemite Empire, Iran, Brazil, Argentina, the United Kingdom, Indochina, Korea also have some, but to a lesser degree.So, what are the militaries of the world like? We know what countries have nukes ITTL but what about aircraft carriers? Any list of countries with aircraft carriers here and whether anyone has supercarriers ITTL?
