Don't let Welly hear that. He'll hunt you down as a heretic.... also what Legate wrote. XD

If he's hunting heretics, better hope he doesn't have any of the Spanish belles with him. Nobody will expect them. :P

No, that would be meta gaming since the joke wasn't there in '39. :lol:

For example, you probably can't put Iowa's beautiful 16" guns on Rawalpindi, but you might be able to put some incredible 5"/38s on her.

Well...actually...

So, if I really, ReallyReally,ReallyReallyReally, Really work hard at it 

I could get a 16" gun on Nautilus, right?

:P

You are getting it wrong.
Nobody would expect the Spanish belles because Spain was not involved in WWII.
Duh.

Oh, it is. Or do you think they'll let you start with a Battlecruiser? ;)

Actually, yes. :-)

PG;

Let's just say that the time and effort to do that *is* possible. But...since the difference in weights is measured in *orders* of magnitude...

...it's extremely, extremely unlikely.

That said...you'd be the coolest submarine captain on your block! :)

I wouldn't put 16" guns on Rawa

I'd put 18.1" guns on Rawa

I doubt it, since I suspect David J would beat me to the punch.

I'm not greedy.  A whole submarine fleet decked out with 8" guns will do me just fine. ;)

About the 16" and 18.1" guns:

That said: Panay might not be greedy, but imagine a fleet of U-Boots armed with Fritz-X guidance system equipped V2s. All three weapon systems were already  in service, tested or researched in '39.

How devilishly fun.  I believe I shall work towards adding that to the list of fleets I need to collect as well.

I'll just note that there is a world of difference between researched, tested, and in-service...

It was used, although not all elements are translated into the final.

I cannot say whose it was, of course. :)

just want to toss out my hat into the ring but....

when VB is released will we get dev updates?

I know the Kickstarter has updates but will we continue to get more dev updates into the game launch?

I'm just wondering if so?

Well, the Team enjoys them, but we'll see- there may be a time during launch when it's just too crazy. :)

I gave it a bit of thought before deciding on this. As today's Veteran's Day, I thought I'd share the man behind Captain John "Jack" Falshaw from my fanfic. A soldier in the Duke of Wellington's Own Regiment, not much is known about my great grandfather other than from a newspaper scrapping and a picture of him. He went to Canada shortly after the war and it is unsure what happened to him after that. I also happen to have from his son (my grandfather, also named John) his leather dogtags, handmade Christmas card to his sister, handmade leather wallet, record of service paper, and his diary complete with two photos of his wife

In the pic, he's the chap with the mustache.
