  1. This is the camouflage of Tirpitz at June 1942. I wanted this camo since i saw this: It's a WIP and when i have time i will finish it (deck/gun camo sucks :P), but even as it is, it's very passable :D *WARNING* This mod is changing your camouflage.xml, so it conflicts with any other mod that edits this file. Also it's replacing the premium camo of Tirpitz (Type 10) and affects all camouflages for Tirpitz, even commons (but i don't think that anyone will use a common camo anyway). DOWNLOAD HERE and extract it to res_mods/0.8.X.X I hope you like it

    Battle of Savo Island

    until
    This night battle, first of the surface engagement in the Solomons chain, was the worst defeat the US Navy suffered in its history. Reacting to the Allied landing on Guadalcanal, Admiral Mikawa put together all available surface forces - seven cruisers and a single destroyer - and led them in first of the raids down the "Slot" from Rabaul to Guadalcanal. Thanks to the superior night trainign and equipment, along with serious tactical and communication errors on the Allied side, the Japanese force managed to utterly surprise and defeat two of the three Allied surface groups, heavily damaging cruisers USS Chicago and HMAS Canberra (had to be scuttled later) of the Southern patrol group and sinking trio of Astoria class heavy cruisers in the Northern group. USS Quincy under fire Due to the time it took to get his ships back in formation and damage suffered by sporadic return fire, he decided not to risk his ships by pressing the attack further and instead retreated to Rabaul, losing the cruiser Kako to submarine torpedo on August 10th just 70 miles short of Rabaul. In total, with air and submarine attacks, the Japanese lost one heavy cruiser against four heavy cruisers and one destroyer being sunlk on the Allied side. Moreover the attack did lead to decision to withdhraw cargo ships from Guadalcanal, leaving the Marines ashore with limited supplies and equipment. After losing three ships of Astoria class including the lead ship in one battle, the class was renamed after the second ship, USS New Orleans. 8th Fleet (VAdm Gunichi Mikawa) Chokai (flagship) - light damage Cruiser Division 6 (RAdm Goto) Aoba (flagship) Furutaka Kako - torpedoed on August 10th Kinugasa Cruiser Division 18 (RAdm Matsuyama) Tenryu (flagship) Yubari Screen Yunagi Task Force 62 (RAdm Turner) Task Group 62.6 - Western Screen (RAdm Crutchley) HMAS Australia (flagship) - part of Southern Group, not present) Radar Pickets USS Blue USS Ralph Talbot - damaged Southern Group HMAS Canberra - damaged, scuttled USS Chicago - damaged USS Bagley USS Patterson - damaged Northern Group USS Vincennes - sunk USS Quincy - sunk USS Astoria - sunlk USS Helm USS Wilson Task Group 62.4 - Eastern Screen (RAdm Scott) USS San Juan HMAS Hobart USS Monssen USS Buchanan Unattached USS Jarvis - damaged by air strike on August 8th, retreating independently to Australia, sunk by air strike on August 9th

    On this day in history, in the evening hours, a fatal order was given to scatter the arctic convoy PQ 17. While the feared sortie of battleship Tirpitz did not happen, submarines and aircrafts sunk 24 of 35 convoy ships. Three merchant ships were protected thanks to quick thinking of commander of one of smaller escort ships:
  4. Video comparing the Shokaku class carrier Zuikaku and the Yorktown class carrier Enterprise. Disclaimer: I made it. Notes on Accuracy & “Methodology”----------------(1) To put it simply, when it comes to data about WW2 ships everything seems to be a bit off. Many sources differ. I have like 3 different crew values for the USS Enterprise, basically every book, website and Wikipedia article has one or several different values.(2) Furthermore, thanks to various commenters on reddit and the paradox forums I know that this is very common. Just to give an example, take a look at this very well illustrated and sourced forum post: http://www.shipmodels.info/mws_forum/...(3) The same goes for articles (see sources: Wildenberg and the link).(4) So, I tried to use only one source for each value in order to keep the data as clean as possible, also I did some cross-referencing, but take everything with a grain of salt.(5) Mid 1942 is also the general “cut-off date”, thus proximity fuses, Japanese deck parks, etc. are not taken into account.(6) Values and equipment is from Mid 1942 or before. Zuikakus plane loadout is from the attack on Pearl Harbor, because she and the Shokaku were not present at the Battle of Miday.(7) Note that especially the AA loadout changed considerable several times, in the end the Zuikaku had 96 25mm AA barrels and the Enterprise was equipped with 40mm bofors.

    Action of 5 July

    On this day in history in 1942, submarine USS Growler managed to find three Japanese destroyers at anchor off the recently occupied island of Kiska. Firing one of the most devastating torpedo spreads in the submarine warfare history, her six torpedoes resulted in at least three hits, one on each of the destroyers. The Asashio class Arare exploded and sunk, remaining two destroyers managed to get back home with serious damage. USS Growler Shiranui (Kagero class) - damaged Arare (Asashio class) - sunk Kasumi (Asashio class) - damaged
