    Hiding or showing your stats

    I have watched nearly every video possible that I can find about hiding your stats, I am not ashamed of my stats, I dont even care about them, I dont even look at other peoples, I just want to hide mine. WHY? Because there is an option to do it and I can't find out how to do it thats why. Any help on this would be grateful thankyou.. this is what it shows on my profile...

    Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh Died and buried Today

    I have just logged on this morning and I already see some posts turning into a political debate here... I might not be Admin on here but PLEASE STOP IT Please have some RESPECT
  7. Prince Phillip died today Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh was a member of the British royal family as the husband of Queen Elizabeth II. Philip was born into the Greek and Danish royal families. He was born in Greece, but his family was exiled from the country when he was eighteen months old. Born: 10 June 1921, Mon Repos, Corfu, Greece Died: 9 April 2021 Children: Charles, Prince of Wales, Anne, Princess Royal, Prince Andrew, Duke of York, Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex Siblings: Princess Cecilie of Greece and Denmark, Parents: Princess Alice of Battenberg, Prince Andrew of Greece and Denmark Quotes We don't come to Canada for our health. We can think of other ways of enjoying ourselves. I don't think a prostitute is more moral than a wife, but they are doing the same thing. When a man opens a car door for his wife, it's either a new car or a new wife. R.I.P.

    What is the Difference Between a Ship and a Boat?

    What is the Difference Between a Ship and a Boat? "Among sailing vessels, the distinction between ships and boats is that a ship is a square-rigged craft with at least three masts, and a boat isn't. With regard to motorized craft, a ship is a large vessel intended for oceangoing or at least deep-water transport, and a boat is anything else." Although everyone knows the difference between a ship and a boat, there are quite a few who often get confused between the two terms. Technically, there is a thin line between them and this often leads to major confusion. While talking about the difference between a ship and a boat, the first thing that comes to one’s mind is their sizes. Traditionally people consider a ship as a large ocean-going vessel, whereas boats are comparatively quite smaller in size. To understand the differences between ships and boats, a number of aspects need to be taken into consideration. Mentioned below are seven main aspects which are taken into account to differentiate between a ship and a boat. 1. Size of Ship and Boat The most important aspect that is considered while stating the difference between a ship and a boat is the size. It is said that the best way to differentiate between a ship and a boat is to remember that “A ship can carry a boat, but a boat cannot carry a ship.” Technically speaking, a mode of water transport that weighs at least 500 tonnes or above is categorised as a ship. In comparison, boats are stipulated to be quite compact in their structural size and displacement. 2. Operational Areas A major difference between ship and boat is that of their areas of operation. Ships are vessels that are operated in oceanic areas and high seas. They usually include cruise vessels, naval ship, tankers, container ships, RoRo ships, and offshore vessels. They are mainly built for cargo/ passenger transportation across oceans. Boats, in contrast, are operable in smaller/ restricted water areas and include ferrying and towing vessels, sail vessels, paddle vessels, kayaks, canoe, patrolling vessels etc. Boats are mainly used for smaller purposes and mainly ply in areas near to the coast. 3. Navigation and Technology Technologically, boats are simple vessels with less complicated equipment, systems and operational maintenance requirements. Since ships are required to be operable for longer time-duration and travel across oceans, they are manned using advanced engineering, heavy machinery, and navigational systems. 4. Crew This is one of the major differences between a ship and a boat. Ships are huge in size and therefore they are operated by professionally trained navigators and engineers. A ship requires a captain to operate the ship and guide the crew. On the other hand, the size of the crew on a boat depends on the size of the boat. It can be one person or a full-fledged crew depending on the size and purpose of the boat. 5. Cargo Capacity A boat is a small to mid-sized vessel, which has a much lesser cargo-carrying capability as compared to a ship. Ships are specifically made to carry cargo or passengers or boats, whereas boat is a generic term used for a variety of watercraft. Mainly boats are used for recreational purposes, fishing, or ferry people. 6. Construction and Design When it comes to construction and design, ships are complicated structures having a variety of machinery systems and designing aspects for safety and stability of the ship. A boat is much simple in construction and build, and has lesser machines and design complexities. 7. Propulsion A boat can be powered by sails, motor, or human force, whereas a ship has dedicated engines to propel them. (Ships can also be propelled by sails or other advanced propulsion technologies) Even though all vessels operating in the high seas are referred to as ships, submersible vessels are categorically termed as ‘boats.’ This is mainly because of the fact that in the earlier centuries, submersible vessels could be hoisted on ships till they were required to be used in the naval operations. However, while talking about differences between a ship and a boat, vessels floating on the water surface is mainly considered. The usage of the term ‘ship’ or ‘boat’ also depends on the region it is being used in. People from several countries often refer a medium-sized fishing vessel as a boat, or a medium-sized ferry or recreational boat as a ship. As can be seen, people have a tendency to generalise a vessel on the basis of its size. However, it is to note that the difference between a ship and a boat depends on a number of factors as discussed above. I think that answers your question

    Now they tell us we are having SUBS in the game

    APRIL Fools Day over for another year
  11. Ah ha, what we need now is mine layers, I knew there was something missing in the game

    Submarines - The Final Verdict

    Then if that's the case you won't have to worry about subs then, You can't chew your bone and eat it at the same time.

    Submarines - The Final Verdict

    Only tried it out 6 times, to tell you the truth I have found it quite a challenge to use but for me yes I like the idea And if WG put in FRENCH SUBS,then don't forget that the FRENCH Submarines went faster backwards than forwards.. It's actually a peculiarity of hydrodynamics. Believe it or not, a tractor-type propellor gives higher propulsion efficiency per SHP than a conventional "pusher" type. The mathematics are very involved, but it boils down to the fact that a screw can't create a (thrust-sapping) cavitation zone in its wake if there's already something solid there (i.e., the hull). The reason U.S. and UK subs can't take full advantage of this is that their screws (patrol or speed) or pumpjets are optimized in blade shape, etc., for forward movement, plus the fact that sustained reverse RPMs cause excessive wear on their shaft drivetrains. The turbo-electric system used by the French mandates a reversible-pitch propellor to go astern (you can run an electric motor backwards, but the prop is less aggravation), so they don't suffer the mechanical penalty of a direct-drive sysytem when going full astern. The U.S. submarines Glenard P. Lipscomb (SSN-685) and Tullibee (SSN-597) also had TEDS (Turbo-Electric Drive System), and exhibited this unusual characteristic to a lesser degree (they had reversible motors instead of reversible-pitch screws). The main reason we don't use tractor-type screws on submarines is that it would cause a direct design conflict with optimum placement of the sonar arrays (i.e. in the bows). USS_Glenard_P._Lipscomb_(SSN-685) USS_Tullibee_(SSN-597) And the main reason we don't use TEDS very much is that the system is inherently more finicky than the straight steam-turbine drive, resulting in increased maintenance cycles and cost and (in some cases) decreased reliabilty. (Tullibee spent so much time in dock with engineering problems that she was known around Newport News as "Building 597".) So in theory we should all go down the french line head straight towards the enemy fire some fish at them and run away backwards whilst she is reloading ready to fire back at them without turning around

    I told you all 3 years ago that subs where coming

    Wow iether im thick or plain down right bloody stupid, I find doing subs quite hard to play and thats not me trolling this post, i really find it hard to muster. But for me yes I really do like submarines being implemented into the the game. For haters they hate it, for lovers they love it it's a bit like Marmite..
