Re: Michael Wittman and Tiger tanks

I am going out on a limb here in my use of an example. So if you want to blow it off, I completely understand I frequently play "Red Orchestra" & it's modification "Darkest Hour" Both are WW2 infantry & tank online battle simulations. "Red Orchestra" being Soviets v Germans, and "Darkest Hour" Briti...

My Brother Met Robert Ballard

My brother called me this past Sunday to let me know, he got the chance to meet and briefly talk to Robert Ballard on Saturday. My brother recognized him when he came into a restaurant he was managing at that night. (My brother is Yellowstone NP's Parkwide Bar Manager) Thanks mostly to the fact I wa...

Re: HMS Rodney

I think in the Rodney & Nelson's situation can be summed up by one saying describing the USAF's Fairchild A-10 Thunderbolt II

"Ugly But Well Hung"

Re: World Cup 2010

You are right! Particularly the USA had two disallowed goals which were actually legal. In the end justice was done, it would have been unfair to see the US go home. I heard Landon Donovan say a couple of days ago, theres nothing you can do about blown calls, now the the team just has to move forwa...

Re: World Cup 2010

Very suprising that Italy got knocked out, sorry Jose but I will cheering for Chile against Spain. I allways like watching the underdog win, though technically Chile is playing better right now. Whats floored me is the bad officiating so far. I don't like how FIFA won't explain the reasoning behind ...

Dreadnought vs South Carolina (BB-26)

The first all big gun battleships, one being the first designed and the other being the first constructed. One to test and validate new technologies and the other forced to conform to old ideas and rules. The result would be two ships that would change the face of world navies. Dreadnought bringing ...

Re: Jutland Anniversary: 94 years ago

Karl, In this instance I am going to have to agree with everyone else. I am glad you posted the anniversary date of Jutland as a reminder to us forum readers. Unfortunately you took it as an opportunity to bash fellow members who don't share the same point of view or naval interest as you. I agree w...

World Cup Predictions or Thoughts?

We have a fairly international group of people on this website, does anyone have predictions for the World Cup starting next week.

I would like to see a couple of things, the USA get into the second round, and England win the World Cup.

Re: Expedient Big Five Upgrade - December 1940

The topic is very interesting but I do find one flaw in the discussion pertaining to AAA. By Jan 1940, the influence of later events involving aircraft against BB’s had yet to be fully understood. So naval thinking at that time was there was not the need for such large AAA capabilities on BB's. Only...

Re: KGV class

Given the problem with quadruple gun turrets on the KGV class battleships is there any reason for the arrangement of the A and B turrets, one four gun and one two gun, when alternatively they both could have been triple turrets? The four gun and two gun arrangement seems odd. As Karl said earlier h...

Re: N. Korean Torpedo Sinks S. Korean Corvette

I hold no particular animosity for the North Korean people, but we must realize what a terrible problem they will be if the two countries are ever reunited. It will make the German unification look like child's play, and that was very difficult. The reunification of Germany was not as politically d...

Re: World Cup 2010

The US will have competitive men's soccer team in the future. US men's soccer has come a long way in the last few decades. I think in 20 years the US will have consistently one of the best teams in the world, and will be in constant contention for the championship of the World Cup after that. Soccer...
