  1. Cheap, easy to produce, transport and setup , that provides great area suppression at the fraction of the cost of an artillery battery and very difficult for loitering munitions to detect
  2. You could easily scale up the 107mm Rocket to 120mm and perhaps bigger, but for effect, cost and ease of transport it's hard to beat
  3. HMCS Corner Brook getting loaded onto a floating drydock to be launched
  4. For sure they get him on that charge. Cadet Officers get commissioning scrolls, Navy League Officers like me get a Warrant.
  5. A Cadet Officer, which technically makes him an commissioned officer, just like algae is technically a lifeform. He is as low as you can go on the officer totem pole. I don't see the mutiny charge sticking.

If we have fifteen ships that means eight on one coast and seven on the other. That creates a problem if only three of those are air defence destroyers because one of those coasts is going to have only one destroyer. If that destroyer goes in for its regular maintenance, then that coast is going to have no air defence vessels at all. So, the idea is—build all 15 of these sh
  11. The most effective device against V1's was convincing the Germans to aim away from London by passing on false target information. As for WWI balloons there were also protected by ground AA as well.
  12. Mainly as his father was neck deep in it and he knows that if he says to much, he is going to end up apoligizing for his father and damaging "The Brand"
  13. Meanwhile Fire strikes largest Iranian navy ship, forcing evacuation TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — The largest ship in the Iranian navy caught fire early Wednesday in the Gulf of Oman under unclear circumstances, forcing sailors to evacuate the vessel, state media reported. A state television report identified the vessel as the support ship Kharg, named after the island that serves as the main oil terminal for Iran. The blaze began around 2:25 a.m. and firefighters were still trying to contain it, state TV said. The vessel is near the Iranian port of Jask, some 1,270 kilometers (790
