    And even before getting into the American jets, the devs could always decide to add the F7F Tigercat first. And the possibility of escort carriers? Calling White Plains now. Bonus if her lines include going out to the gunnery range with Choukai.

    So with Warspite's entry the door for more mature kanmusu could be opened theoretically. Perhaps a Derfflinger, with a Rotweiler puppy in tow, appears to ask Warspite of "what did you do at Jutland exactly anyway?"

    Alright fine I admit it! You can use too much lighter fluid.

    Remember with the new behavior system, in particular the in game violations, is WG platform wide not just here and Warships. The main hive of scum and villainy that needs the watching is over in Tanks (not so much their forums) cause in game Tanks is pretty bad.

    Optimization/Lag after 5.9

    It's not just you. Every match has gone to unplayable for me because of the lagging leading into desynchs. It started with 5.8.1 and has continued into 5.9. There are posts in the Feedback and the Bugs sections about this. I posted about this in this forum under "Fix the Game". Be prepared for a lot of comments that do not read the situation and tell you it's your system.

    Katori, you are not alone in taking a look at the world around and being dismayed or at least thinking "This will not end well". At this point the only way to stay sane is to pour the rum, kick back and hope when the bomb drops that it's an EMP bomb. Sure it'll suck, but it will remind the younger generations that MeatSpace trumps VirtualSpace every time. To feel better I also usually put the Red Green Show in the DVD player.

    Heck just think if the Turks had waited another 8 years or so before deciding to scrap her. Reagan probably would have had military loans given to Turkey to give the Yavuz an anti-ship missile upgrade like the Iowas.

    If they keep going with the blending elements ( I see some German influence HK wise in the lower receiver and grip) the Russians will progress to the Sturmgewehr 44.

    I thought the Russian army had moved on to the AN-94 Nikonov? edit: nvm... the Russians decided to keep it simple and stick with what works the AK-74M.

    The Navy, thanks to their successes in the Russo-Japanese war, ended up being the more prestigious and glamorous service. So much so, that many eldest, best and brightest sons of the prominent military background families went IJN. Because the IJA had suffered rather horrific casualties in the same war, its prestige suffered. Throw competing budgets into the mix. And don't forget that the IJA was trying to avoid losing face from anyone asking the question "So why hasn't China been pacified yet?". Yamamoto himself took an underway command to avoid assassination from the feud.

    The great British arsenal dumps are a sad thing of the past now. Good luck finding any Lee-Enfields at all, except for a small remnant of No4 Mk2s with post war BSA or Fazerkley stamps. There used to be a steady supply out of Australia, but their gun registration scheme ended up melting down their surplus war arms. And now because of politics, the supply of Mosins from Russia is kaput. If you want a quality hard to find Mosin Xero, look for ones marked 1915 and 1916 that were made by Remington. Most were chambered in 7.62x54R but a sizable number were rechambered by the US govt into .30-06 for American troops to use in 1917-1918 on the Kola peninsula in support of White Russian forces during the Revolution. As for major regrets I have many. My collection has expanded and retracted depending on my economic circumstances or just wanting to afford a new addition. Thus I no longer have a C96, a 1886 Kropatschek rifle, a Type 38 Arisaka or the Saiga 12 gauge. I really wish that I had had the money to buy the Chinese Tiger knockoff Dragunov for $1500 back when a couple of dealers managed to import about 20 of them.

    Now odds are that is not a sporterized rifle but depending on the markings, an actual from the factory hunting rifle by Mauser. And $900 is very reasonable for one of those. Especially if it has double set triggers. I had a C96 once. It was just cool. Surprisingly hard to shoot accurately without the buttstock though.
