  1. Oran from a British Newsreel POV. ...Sandwiched between hippos and Galloping Gertie...
  2. From Update #14: (first question answer in blue. Second in red.)
  3. The only Belles we've met that were commissioned before 28 June 1914 is a shorter list than you think: Yavuz and Kongou. Parizhskaya Kommuna wasn't commissioned until 30 November 1914. Profintern and Bearn had keels down by then, but didn't get launched until later -1915 for Profintern, 1920 for Bearn- much less commissioned (1928 and 1927, respectively). Nevada was launched on 11 July 1914, but commissioned on 16 March 1916. Arizona is similar: Keel laid on 16 March 1914, launched on 19 June 1915, and commissioned on 17 October 1916. ...And Mississippi is the baby: keel laid on 25 January 1915, launched on 25 January 1917 and comissioned 18 December 1917.
  4. Too easy. I'd rather see Gneisenau and Moskva, or "Dietra" and Moskva comparing notes.
  5. I believe in Update 4 Mahan answered those questions:
  6. ...Or De Ruyter and Béarn, debating which bread Henley should choose for her next culinary piece.
  7. I believe she has swim fins with high heels too, like Surcouf. Then again, she is a salmon, so the "fins" may be her actual fins, with the rest of the swimming fin providing her an artificial heel and ball of the foot. If that's so, my hat is really off to BCS.
  8. Scharnhorst wasn't voted for either, Ninjapacman, because her upstage of Glorious was before the Association was even offered the vote. It stands to reason that if Glorious wasn't a Belle at all, then Mahan shouldn't have been waiting to interview her. But that point is moot, since the Association has found all the intentionally hidden Belles.
  9. Observant, Chivalrous, Wise: Salmon! So many emotions... On the one hand, elation! A fine, level-headed submarine Belle for my fleet? Yesss, my pretty, my Preciousss.... Um...right. ...Pay no attention to that submarine fleet behind the curtain... On the other hand, the end of the Interviews. Not the end of the Updates, but no more new introductions. I know Galicia is waiting. But...Glorious? Glorious, are you there? Guess we'll have to wait to see. Prediction time:
  10. Okay, Nautilus and Nerpa in a breath-holding competition. Referee to be determined by the Team. Suggestion #2: All the hoary details on the chocolate battle between Axum and Leningrad.
  11. When you do come up for air, Nel, may I humbly request you to add U-29 and Salmon to the fantastic submarine wallpaper you made for me previously?
  12. Do you really think Leningrad will let that happen?
  13. Legate's exact words were: And so long as the caveat is there, the door is still ajar enough for we, the Captain's Association to give a Morgana the vote one of these weeks and see what the Team does. My suspicion is that they would laugh mightily, then take it as permission to introduce whomever they wanted that week. ...Think of it as the same way they break ties, only the CA wouldn't know who the Morgana was tied with until the interview. They could also introduce the Morgana. The only way to know for sure what they will do is to vote for one and see what happens. Would Mahan interview the runner up of the vote? A Belle totally off our radar? The Morgana? The World Wonders.
  14. The May Incident, which took the might out of Loose Lips Might Sink Ships.
  15. ...She captured the Enigma machine...NOT something the Allies wanted put on a headline. In fact, when the USS Guadalcanal successfully captured U-505 on 4 June 1944, the code-breaking department had a fit because they were worried it would jeopardize what Bulldog's prize had been netting them since 1941. ...And don't get me started on the May Incident...
