Mers-el-Kebir and Toulon

As others have requested (although I don't know why they didn't start it themselves), and due to the light that political topics are to stay in Off Topic, I have created a Topic on the in port political disasters of the French Fleet of WW2. In a different topic I stated my opinion that the attack on...

I knew he had Parkinsons, that's why in most latter footage of him he is holding something in his left hand. I said crack in a general term to describe drugs that would be illegal today, but my point is I am surprised that any country would allow a doped up leader, any hint and they would be kicked ...

Sorry, you are right. The materials were collected but the keel was never started. Pity, she would have been the best (possible) BBB with the blindfire radar and proven 16in of the Iowas. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/38/USS_Montana_bb67.jpg PS: Is BBB for Super Battleship an actua...

The keels were laid down for two of actual Montanas in 1939, but canceled after Pearl Harbor, although the Iowas, Kentucky and Illinois were considered for improvements the Montana's had :think:

So, what is your all's opinion after our debating about what Ideal Rhine would be? Lets say we start tampering at the Battle of Denmark Strait, Hood has just been blown out of the water, and Tirpiz and Hipper are inserted wherever you decide.

Yes, I know the situations are made up and bogus, but the actual ships I listed were actually planned and going to be constructed :negative: Montana was going to constructed before the cancelation (or conversion to another Iowa, your pick), Sovietsky Soyuz was under construction (although she wasn't...
