  1. Battleship Lorraine T5 She is different to Bretagne but still in the same ship class. She is missing her 3rd turret as that has been replaced with a hangar and catapult Lorraine was a battleship of the French Navy built in the 1910s, named in honor of the region of Lorraine in France. She was a member of the Bretagne class, alongside her two sister ships, Bretagne and Provence. Lorraine was laid down in August 1912 at the Chantiers de Penhoët shipyard, launched in September 1913, and commissioned into the fleet in March 1916, after the outbreak of World War I. She was armed with a main battery of ten 340 mm (13 in) guns and had a top speed of 20 knots (37 km/h; 23 mph). Lorraine spent the bulk of her career in the French Mediterranean Squadron. During World War I, she was stationed at Corfu to prevent the Austro-Hungarian fleet from leaving the Adriatic Sea, but she saw no action. She was modernized significantly in the 1920s and 1930s, and in 1935 her amidships 340 mm gun turret was removed and aircraft facilities were installed in its place. After the outbreak of World War II, Lorraine carried a shipment of gold from the French treasury to Bermuda before returning to operate in the Mediterranean. At the French surrender in July 1940, Lorraine was moored in Alexandria, where she was disarmed by the Royal Navy. After joining the Free French Naval Forces in December 1942, Lorraine was refitted for active service. She provided gunfire support for the landings in Operation Dragoon in August–September 1944 and bombarded German positions around La Rochelle in April 1945. After the end of the war, Lorraine was used was a gunnery training ship and then a barracks ship until late 1953, when she was stricken and sold to shipbreakers. Between 18 September 1934 and 20 September 1935, a fourth and final pre-war refit was carried out in Brest; Lorraine's amidships turret was removed, and an aircraft catapult along with a hangar for three aircraft were installed. The aircraft were initially Gourdou-Leseurre GL819 and Potez 452 seaplanes, though they were later replaced with Loire 130 flying boats. In 1936, Lorraine was transferred to the Atlantic Squadron, where she remained until the outbreak of World War II in September 1939. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_battleship_Lorraine

  11. Thats what I am trying to know as well as it is quite a new term that I have seen thrown aroudn the gaming community lately
  12. There is something I do not really get when it comes to gaming. Of all Star Wars titles including BattleFront and Galaxy of Heroes which was released by EA dice and Force Arena released by Netmarble, it seems there is a big time hatred towards people who spend massive amounts I.E. $2,000 to $10,000 a week on cards, loot boxes and etc. Is there any reason why there is hatred or resentment towards these kind of people?
  13. EA SW Battlefront DISASTER

    So thats why the term whale is used in many Star Wars BF or Force Arena games
