    Polish Navy

    mmmbeer, on 25 October 2013 - 01:44 PM, said: We have kind of the same approach to our navy. Kind of strange since Norway have much shoreline and huge offshore interests. Norwegian Navy has 5 modern (2000s) Frigates and 6 Ula class submarines. We have 5. 4 of them are Kobben class(ironically former Norwegian :trollface: ) and 1 Kilo. We have 2 frigates. I believe it is still way better. Polish Navy regulary fails to meet conditions which were accepted in NATO joining treaty. We sent no ships to fight with pirates near Horn of Africa. Every project aimed at improving Navy either fails or is reduced to minimal size. Polish Navy has extremely limited blue water capabilities and only ship participating in wars in the last few years was ORP Kontradmirał Xawery Czernicki. Yeah. Logistic ship. Was used as floating base for GROM (and maybe Formoza). If you ask me they should scrap the hell out of this old surface ships and built 1 or 2 nuclear attack submarines. Leave Czernicki as it is as GROM is one of the few military units that can really hurt enemy. Building something like destroyer is nearly impossible even though President said on some conference that efforts will be made to improve Navy. Yeah. Right. Fiold, on 23 October 2013 - 12:57 PM, said: Exactly. We had just few naval battles in our history (the biggest one was Battle of Oliwa in 1627) and our biggest ships were old cruisers (protected cruiser ORP Baltyk serving as a hulk and two Danae class cruisers). One must remember, that Poland doesn't have some special need for having a big fleet. We are land country, we had access only to Baltic Sea, no interests on different continents, no colonies etc. Poland needs just a couple of submarines and few dozens of small ships. Anything bigger then a frigate is questionable in Polish situation. We need 1 ship which is able to sail far away. It would make sense to have sea fleet but this sea fleet should be modern. Our fleet is old weak and degrading with each year. In the end we have nothing. No Ocean Navy and no good sea navy. Navy branch of Armed forces is simply neglected. :angry: EDIT BTW can some mod pls correct this spelling mistake in topic title? :trollface:

    1897: Disgrace and Regeneration

There was 2000kg gold in that treasure :) I believe using this last resort money was not justified in time of peace (war already ended). It is like European countries using strategic currency reserves only because crysis was said to be starting. Pointless.

    USS Zumwalt, into the sea

    Spezct, on 30 October 2013 - 11:30 AM, said: Jeah, too much smooth surface, but that's why modern destroyers can be hidden from radar. But now days we have MImic-class aircraft carries, which are looking badass! I do not understand why people hate this look. To me it looks like it is going to fly up to the sky in few seconds and start some space journey :izmena:

    ORP Gawron " Slązak *** NEW MODERN WARSHIP ***

    Polish sources state that this was MEANT to be corvette but as usual in my beautiful country nothing goes as it should so "Gawron" corvette will become "Ślązak" patrol boat. Project failed mainly due to bankruptcy of company which was tasked with building the corvettes. It is another time when small attempt to make Polish Navy a bit less a parody of Navy failed. Instead of corvette we will have motorboat for political celebrities to show off on. :sceptic:
  7. Well only bright thing in this is that their death was fast and painless.

    Finnish "coastal defence ships"

    Well yeah I totally support this. I want this thing in game. Complete with camo from last pic :Smile_trollface: Were there any more interesting Finnish vessels?
  9. I watched a program about this few years ago and I still remember one thing that crewman of this submarine said: "We heard and explosion and we instantly cheered and triumphed but after a few seconds we went silent as we realised that we could have been on the place of those german seamen" Not exact quote but overall sense maintaned I think

    De Zeven Provinciën class frigate

    Big Brother is watching :Smile_hiding: Well Germany is allergic to wars now too:P so this is not so strange. It looks a bit stealthy to me. Was it designed with low radar visibility in mind?
