    1940 Hood is T6 material

    The VII is an improvement over the V for shore but not as dramatic an improvement as over the II/III, there was an integrated Dumaesq in the type V [confirmed on Hood unshore if this is stock] and also several Dumaresq's for various purposes but independent of the table. There was a lot of manual input but the data would have been pretty good but the end of her career with tools like the 285 ect. The Admiralty fire clock was on Renown also and I have more data/info on that and theirs some interesting comparisons to be made regards accuracy as the too ships often played off so should be a good marker for just how much of an improvement it was, im guessing the less experienced the 2 crews the more of a noticeable advantage Renown would have I shall have a look quite an interesting topic. Also I had a look and Renown had changes made to her MkI mounts in her reconstruction im wondering if these included changes to the munition handling equipment ive not found evidence yet but it would make sense, Vanguards old mark 1 turrets were messed about with to a similar spec to the proposed 15" triple mounts for KGV/LION but again I don't have data only for the later again proposed 16" mounts.. Ive got some good books on Renown so hoping a bit of reading might shed light on it.

    1940 Hood is T6 material

    MK V did use a Gyro in put for YAW. [i can get a pic of a V later if you like showing Gyro input and I think there is a display on it so you can glance an confirm the input data is valid.] im not shore regarding the shells, I was under the impression only monitors used the longer 15" rounds. Be an interesting read if you have any information on the changes made to im guessing Valiant Warspite QE and Renown to use these rounds... I know there was a load off stuff on the Lion/KGV proposed triple mounts but I never know what to believe! lol

    abstract but entertaining, thanks.

    UP Rockets

    Any one got any info on this, inters of game implementation? Ive heard i mat be a consumable? IRL they were an aerial mine laying tool, and proved more dangerous to the user than the potential targets.. If there modelling it id be keen to know how they will work in game?

    1940 Hood is T6 material

    Quick tech check. Hood was the only ship fitted with MkII 15" mounts the elevation is NOT the same as the MKI mounts on other 15" RN ships. [The barrels are the same.] Hood was still being updated as late as January 1941. Warspite had the same gun barrels as Hood, interestingly the 15" barrels on RN ships often spent time on different hulls after there periodic refurbishment. Don't know what "streamlined shells" are... but Mag load outs varied dependent on operation there was no reason any round used in an MKI mount could not be used in a MKII unless it was made after May 1941 as only Hood had the MKII mounts!! [Vanguards are MKI's off Fishers 2 converted light battle cruisers Glorious and Courageous]. Regards Fire gunnery the systems used are similar dreyer tables Hood having her original MKV and Warspite an updated MKVII. Hood revived a type 284 fire-gunnery control Radar in 1941 ive not look closely at the WOW model but I understand she is 1940 spec aka "Norway/Med" configuration. Warspite did not get a 284 until later, however I have noticed that the WOW model does have the array.

    QE/Warspite

    This will have been covered but the posts seem old and i know much has changed so.. I got Warspite my fist prem purchase and looks very smart. but the guns seem strange? the 15" MK1 barrels in Mk1 mounts but there range seems very short? is there any way to make it better I can't see any upgrades? im a bit worried about this as lots of RN ships used them... well all 15" ships save HOOD that used the MK2 mount but same barrels... second despite having many hit points it seems to loose lots from AP hits, ive got a Fuso so im used to that am I just imaging it?.. is this just I need to ajust the way I play to it? Cheers SamRo

    What we know about Ships: Updated 05/04/2017

    ah I c, so fixed tubes could not be modelled then? They were quite prevalent on early ships shame.

    What we know about Ships: Updated 05/04/2017

    Renown & Admiral Class both had torpedo tubes, in fact lots of older BB's/BC's had them low in the hull RN and German Imperial Navy/kriegsmarine are we likely to see this I wonder? "Hood would not have been sunk if.." much like the loss of IJN Mutsu war is just not that predictable...

    The Russians are coming

    Russian DD's should be good fun! I recall they used Italian Torp's? or a least the some of the best torps available to them were Italian should be interesting as they don't really compare to Long Lance so can't see there should be a great number more complaints, The ships themselves are lovely very perpusful, I had read that some could make up to 40 knots! and they look the part!

    Game Modes

    there's lots of scope to make for lots of re-playability.. early days I guess.

    Game Modes

    Afternoon. did a quick search and did not notice any posts covering this element of "game modes".. So... will there be national team games as more nations are added? eg :- IJN vs USN? also will there be away to set a given game to historically built ships only? then maybe combine the too to recreate a period battle? Sorry if this has been covered.

    Pax Britannica

    Guess its a Patriotic thing, fair enough... did have me thinking mind the Russian navies biggest warship operated during WWII was British "Arkhangelsk" I think... better known as... HMS Royal Sovereign... So guess the R Class can't be to far away ;-p

    Penetrative hit on POW :- http://hmshood.com/history/denmarkstrait/powdamage.gif "Noted. The damage sustained in PRINCE OF WALES in her recent action has now been examined by D.N.C's representative.SECRETSubject.. Unexploded Enemy ShellFrom .. The Commanding Officer, H.M.S. PRINCE OF WALESDate .. 8th June, 1941 No. 001.A/1To .. THE COMMANDER IN CHIEF, HOME FLEET.(Copies to The Secretary of the Admiralty.The Commander-in-Chief, RosythDuring the early morning action on May 24th a heavy hit was felt abreast the Starboard Diesel Room. It was found that the outer air space 184-196, the outer oil fuel tank 184-206, the inner air space 184-194, the starboard diesel tank 184-206 were fill to the crown with oil and water.2. On Friday 6th June, on pumping out the dry dock a clean hole in the side about 15" diameter was found, a foot above the bilge keel at 187 starboard.Holes were also found in the light plating forming the sides of the outer oil fuel tank 184-206.Heavy marking was found on the protective bulkhead but there were no signs of explosion.3. When the ship's bottom was visible it became apparent that there was no exit hole and a search was made for the shell.The inner air space 184-194 was pumped out and the shell was found to be lying on the bottom between two frames 190-192 nose forward.The shell was in good condition with the fuse in place, but without a ballistic cap.The angle of entry was 10° from forward and the angle of descent (measured from the ship's perpendicular) was from 2° to 4°.4. Without rough treatment the removal of the shell either upwards or downwards presented difficulty. Finally it was decided to lower it through the bottom.The shell was lifted, by [..] chain purchases, one inch clear, slung by a quick action grab. Special lifting bands supplied by the Bomb Disposal Officer from H.M.S. COCHRANE were then fitted and screwed firmly round the shell. It was then lowered, slung by the lifting bands and hoisted 5 ft. clear.Seven sets of supporting blocks were removed from under the protective bulkhead in the dock, and a hole 4 ft. by 2 ft., was burnt under the shell. This necessitated cutting into two bottom plates.The shell was lowered through this hole on to a rubber tyred ammunition trolley and wheeled aft, where a dockyard crane picked it up and it was then placed in a 'Bomb Disposal Boat' and removed.5. The diameter of the shell measured just above the driving band was 14.875 inches."
