Well, I have heard a shitload more from the Lockheed side of the field than "competitors". From what I have heard from General Dynamics, it is very fuzzy and not informative. Atleast we have pictures, definite capabilities, and data of the USS Freedom. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/1/19/L...

:silenced: NO, that is an exellent point. I was just trying to prod you into going into greater detail of how we can fix this. My last post came out wrong. I do believe that we have the tendancy to give the German fleet the upper hand, besides the fact they usually didn't (why don't we ask Hitler wh...

:think: Is the damage in front of the shaft entrance point? With that kind of shaft damage I would think the odometer (it's the odometer that shows rpm, right?) would go strait to zero.

By the way, nice photos :clap:

:think: I am assuming that Montana had no torpedo tubes. Or would they have been put on for the heck of it?
