    Naval and Defense News (cont.)

    Technical contributions between Western partners is one thing, mate. But how can a military power can sustain itself without going through a complicated political debacles is another matter. The US began to see France as a more reliable military partner & nuclear deterrent for NATO, mainly because France quietly carried out foreign intervention on Mali & stabilized Africa after when the Libya fell with catastrophic consequences, by themselves. Plus having an assertive leader, France effectively succeeding Germany in leading Western Europe so that the US don't have to bear the burden on Europe, which is the reason why the Trump administration stresses other NATO members to contribute more on defense spending. On top of that, France has both air- & sea-based nuclear deterrence (though used to be a triad deterrence) while UK only has sea-based nuclear deterrence. For UK, on the other hand, is still plaguing by the political incompetence at home which ultimately hamstrung its own military power.

    A viewpoint from a certain Romanian in regards to the US military partner shift from UK to France: One soberly criticized that the QE-class was not only a "wasted potential" to the British military, but also represents the UK's political debacle as a whole, when the parliament itself has already become a circus. Not to mention the questionable debacle of scrapping their Trident SLBMs also another reason why the US considering to shift to France, because the British has become less & less reliable as military partner & a nuclear deterrent. Welp, so much of the US-UK special relationship...

    Premium Ship Review #101: Kronshtadt

    I actually came back for this review when I heard folks in Discord mentioned Kronshtadt. Hmmm... I'm glad that Kronshtadt is doing fine & well regardless, even though the secondaries parameters could have been better than this. Reminder, Kronshtadt was designed a "heavy cruiser" by the Soviet terminology back then - which was their equivalent of battlecruiser. It was said it could perform better than Dunkerque & maybe could stand toe-to-toe with Scharnhorst by chance, given the 305mm AP parameters are superior to the German 28cm AP. Maybe you guys could try fight Kron vs Scharn & report back the outcome. Anyway, great to see a positive review on Kronshtadt, Mouse.

    Actually, there would be at one point you would consider Azur Lane. Not sure if you played it though.

    I had an interesting conversation with someone else regarding the recent WoWs x Azur Lane collab event that been announced, he has been following both KanColle & Azur Lane for probably a couple of years and it appears he has brought out some interesting & potentially disturbing points of information about why WoWs x KC collab could no longer be possible. As I said "potentially disturbing", kindly do read through the quotes at your discretion below:

    Though WG actually did promote WoT & WoT Blitz with Burger King when I was in my trip in Russia. I saw it in an international airport at St. Petersburg.

    You don't get resources from sorties. You usually get them from expeditions. You may go visit the KanColle Wiki for more information, they would give recommendations of which expeditions are beneficial to your daily routines. For now, you must first focus on quest to unlock all 4 fleet compositions to maximize your resource gathering efficiency. Again, visit wiki page & you'll benefit it greatly.

    Azur Lane discussion thread!

    You mean DMM.com has a business connection with Gajin for years? For how long? This is no wonder some KanColle fans were crying about "Y U NO collab with KanColle, WG?!" for some times. Personally, even though I used to be a KanColle fan & used to hang out in the KanColle for years, I don't have much hard feelings if the WoWs x KC collab couldn't be realized. In fact, KanColle is also under the deadlock of Kadokawa, which also made such collab almost impossible.

    Oh, speaking of which, I came with the new KanColle-esque game developed by YahGame Entertainment based in SEA, Hong Kong & Taiwan. I came across to it last weekend in a Toys, Anime, Comics & Games Expo convention: http://snhx.yahgame.com
