    When will the Great Eight collection stop?

    as i have only picked up 4 of them so far i hope it goes on for a bit. from the way i'm playing i will not get the cossak or the great 8 captian. i don't even dream of getting the mission for a 2nd comander. i didn't get 1 UK DD from the last one.

    CV Rework Feedback

    i get that and it was easy to get started right away. it just seems there are more ways to set stuff up and there is no list of keys to open those menus up.

    CV Rework Feedback

    so I played the games and here are my thoughts at the 1st run. 1 it still takes skill to get the lead right for the drops. this is good. there will be a learning curve. 2 it looks great. 3 there are things we can do but there is no guide on what they are yet. this makes it hard to test. I watched notser's video and he can bring up menus that I never found.

    Add STS as a USN line module?

    ok great, can you provide links to this info please? all i have to go on is the 1991 info.

    Add STS as a USN line module?

    well this is wordy but states it better than i could. The USS SOUTH DAKOTA Class had a 12.2" (310 mm) Class 'A' belt laminated to about 2" (50.8 mm) of cement and 0.875" (22.2 mm) of STS bulkhead plating and inclined 19o from the vertical outboard (top overhanging bottom) to increase all possible impact angles. (The U.S. Navy made considerable use of homogeneous armor grade STS in its WWII battleships for the upper hull, major bulkheads and major decks -- a rather lavish design detail due to the higher cost of this metal.) This armor was recessed inboard on the third anti-torpedo bulkhead exactly like the later USS IOWA Class. There was a 1.25" (31.8 mm) vertical STS outer hull (increased to 1.5" (38 mm) in the IOWA) and a 0.5" (12.7 mm) mild steel or HTS second bulkhead plate spaced a few feet in front of the main belt. This added outer plating would only reduce the 38 cm projectile's striking velocity on the main belt by roughly 10 feet/second (3 m/sec), but it was (barely) thick enough to decap the German 38 cm projectile (), resulting in shatter when the projectile hits the face-hardened Class 'A' belt. [It should be noted that the South Dakota's outboard plating would certainly de-cap any projectiles under 16" (40.6cm). De-capping 16" projectiles is possible but not certain, and no larger projectile would usually be de-capped. The Iowa class' slightly thicker outer plating, however, would de-cap all projectiles up to 18.6" (47.3cm) in diameter.] A few projectile nose and upper body pieces penetrate at the HL, with their number increasing with increasing striking velocity until essentially all penetrate at the NL - the HL and NL are both drastically higher when shatter occurs. Also, unless the rare nose-only shatter occurs, shatter drastically reduces the projectile's explosive power and its further penetration ability. To deal with these, there was an upward extension of the last torpedo bulkhead spaced a few feet behind the main belt - 1" thick STS amidships and 1.5" around the magazines. so the South Dakota armor would decap less than 16" and may decap 16" shells. Iowa would decap Yamatos' 18" shells. you would still get shell fragments at some ranges and at close ranges, the entire shell may go through but it would be damaged so as to not do catastrophic damage. from this article. http://www.combinedfleet.com/okun_biz.htm a good source to start one's research.

    Does anyone play Arms Race?

    as others have said before, it is fun and fast paced. i enjoy it a lot. the bummer is WG set it up so the XP and damage don't count to anything going on in the game. so low numbers and long wait times. they wanted a test and it might be the go to for T9-10 as it isn't hard to make money even if you lose the match. a great boon for the high tiers. i would love to see this game mode be normalized and count for the mission and events.

    Why Are you Joining the CV Rework Test

    ok so how do you do this?

    Add STS as a USN line module?

    no need to talk about how the outer hull of STS would act as a decapping armor to AP shells on the CA and BB like the South Dakota's and Iowas so that many of the AP rounds hitting them would be HE common and fail to go through the real armor belt. the U.S. DDs were made of the stuff. the IJN had soft shells and armor because the wanted underwater hits and feared them. RC1138, they also made the KM guns have the worst accuracy. because the Germans are known for bad gunnery i guess.

    How many ship missions have you gotten?

    none. i expected none and wasn't disappointed. same for the last 2 times they gave out ships early.

    missions are missing

    so the personal missions for the Haida and Monahan are missing from my list but the T-61 ones are still there. i didn't finish them so does anyone know what is up with that? thanks mike
