  1. I've found out more about Incomp from Fisher biographies than I have any Naval history book. I think because the latter don't take incomp very seriously where as a biographer sees it as a cool talking point. The picture was done by Fisher and is one of the few sketches of the ship from the family held papers. The body of text of Incomp's description comes from his memoirs which is free to read online. I really like the ship so anything I can do to help I'll try and do.
  2. There is more to HMS Incomparable than first glances and this singular picture. Here is his own list of details he spoke about in his memoirs and a mad sketch from his own papers I don't think too many people have seen.
  3. Sorry my cynicism didn't think for that. I was purely thinking of 'What makes more money from the RU server audience' That said I'm still waiting for Arkhangelsk/Royal Sovereign.
  4. I am half expecting GC to be moved to tier 6 with the proposed changes. Then 2 weeks later a tier 5 Novorossiysk with some nerfs on her to be announced. Or maybe the other way around.

    Operation Hermes Tips

    Okay so I think the situation between Gascogne (bot helper) and Richelieu (objective) just occurred for me explaining some context behind the 'hints' At a mid point in operation the Richelieu stops behind an island and makes a repair zone. However for a not yet ascertained reason the Gascogne who trails behind the Richelieu rams the richy up the stern and pushes her out from behind the protective island before the timer for her to start sailing again occurs. This forces the objective into the sights of any battleship you've yet to destroy from the 4 that spawn as well as 3 DDs and another BB, which is bad.
  6. Just posted over on the Devblog Okay. I'm curious.
  7. The more you look at the list, the less it makes sense. I assume whoever made it googled "tier 6 German destroyer" because they're an IT worker not a player. But, only ever speculation.
  8. This is true. One assumes for the US cruiser shuffle with Cleveland going up to tier 8. It seems a lot might be happening in December. Emphasis on might.
  9. I don't think it'd be wise to have a competition about a ship that you have get in the premium shop as opposed to one that anyone can get in the tech tree. Interesting to note is there is no Pan Asian Destroyer option.
  10. With a news post today they asked a question: So I decided to participate and I was surprised to see that Normandie was an option and the form you fill out with a lot of these contests was "pick your server region" Anything is speculation but you can draw some ideas from this inclusion.
  11. Might I recommend a book for you? Unless you already have it. British Warship Names by Manning, Captain T. D. and Commander C. F. Walker. Just under 500 pages of Royal Navy Warship names. Personally for a 1915/16 laid down ship I would have HMS Irresistible, the name became free after the predred was mined in 1915. There are a lot of choice names you could steal from land establishments, I'm fond of a Royal prefix like Royal Caroline or Royal Alfred for a Capital ship at lease.
  12. While there is nothing I'm super disagreeing with (aside the name "Devastation" I just find that so...mediocre) I think you need to show rather than tell about Monarch and the 15C lie. I mean for one you have the 15C pic to scale, why not show how it differs from KGV. Note on the lattice masts...those look like 1959 modernization Belfast masts right? Oh and this might help for your Iron Duke AA picture. Maybe you could you could have Base Ship / AA platform Iron Duke :) give her loads of old pew pew at expensive of never leaving spawn or being useful at all

    The French Destroyer's Thing

    Looking at it I see enough French DDs to make two full trees. One ending in Surcouf and one ending in the upgraded Mogador aka the Hoche. Progression of Le Fantasque to Mogador to Hoche can be made to work. Like Russian DDs these large guns could only be trained very slowly, Mogador did not have a powerful enough generators for her size of turrets an were said to train very slow. Going from Mog to Hoc we can say they were fitted with the cruiser level of voltage so we have the same firepower but with an obvious buff. When it comes to torpedoes Pregression from Fant to Mog is better as we go from [Two Triples on each side & one central triple] to [One triple and One double on each side] However the Hoc loses the the two doubles the mog had and are replaced with 100mm HA guns, we can either do away with them for repeat of Mog or lose them for an AA boost and perhaps fast reload on the remaining triple tubes. None of these ships will be machine guns HE spitters you may fear will power creep the DDs now, sluggish in guns is what I see. I've got john jordons & jean moulins book on French destroyers if people want to see the details of differences. I've been humming at my own version of the line for a while.

    The case for HMS Incomparable

    Doesn't have to be 20 inch guns. Not arguing for or against but putting what Mad Jackie himself wrote in memoirs. I'm interested in the model he spoke about.
