    missile question

    Not even remotely what I was talking about. You only need a single spurt of data to know that there are hostile forces in the area. I don't even need signal bleed-off from tight-band, I just have to look directly at your satellite to see if it's transmitter is warm and I will know you have assets in the area. Then, if my crew isn't a bunch of muppets, we will be at general quarters, tubes open, guns loaded, radar humming, countermeasures ready by the time your missile is seen over the horizon. That drastically cuts down on the success rate of AShM attacks outside of saturation strikes. (Which is pretty much all AShM use since the 60s.)

    missile question

    Such an uplink will alert any technological enemy that they have threats inbound. We get away with it most of the time because either we're fighting people who can't even afford clean water or the drones are going to be used to draw out enemy forces. (Vietnam and Gulf War) But doing that for a missile ruins any sort of surprise you may of had.

    missile question

    As said before, before the missile turns on it's active sensors in the target area, it has no ability to avoid colliding with vessels be they friendly, neutral or even hostile. But generally AShMs in transit mode don't have their warheads primed, so such a collision wouldn't be followed by a boom.

    We can only hope it ends in a Second Tanker War at most. Because it seems like Iran has boxed itself into a corner...again.

    For Sale: PCH-1 USS High Point

    So much for "restoring it as a museum". Looks like somebody bought it and forgot it, as typical for people who don't understand how hard it is to restore boats, much less military ones that typically have bespoke parts and no documentation.

    Large Surface Combatant speculation/predictions

    There's already a serious issue with the "black box" mantra the USN has adopted into it's Flight III ABs, LCS and Zumwalts of the crew basically being tourists in their own vessel. They are also running with such small crew numbers that they can't fully crew watches at all times and have no resiliency to battle losses in combat. It's a damn mess because the USN is trying to run cheap on everything besides Carriers.

    Let's keep this boat from beaching, eh fellas?

    French Destroyers: The History

    Any DD line with no smoke gen needs to have superior health, superior speed, superior agility and superior concealment compared to all smoke gen equipped DDs. Or the line will be DoA after the newness wears off.
  9. Alpha for WoWS was +5 and WoT was +5 for the first year or so of it's active release. So if you want to act all tough because you get off on terrible MM, we might as well go whole hog and bring back the MM that had New Yorks and Shermans facing off against Montanas and T30s.

    An NTC perk I'd want

    Anything that eases economic stress for free is a complete non-starter.
  11. In that case, time to bring back +5/-5 MM.
  12. Just say, "At this time, we're not willing to cease our abusive monetization schemes. Thank you."?

    If the First Tanker War was anything to go by...Yes.

    A second Tanker War doesn't really get them anything. They lose all their ships, their air force and their tanker fleet/oil exports. No need to invade from the US but all the benefits of giving the Iranians a black eye. (Plus, as you say, it's push the EU away from them.)
