  1. There were 3 main concept designs for the Plan Z Spahkruezer. 1938, and 1939 that shared the same hull dimensions. 152 meters over all length with 16 and a half meter width. The 1940 design was designed to be 162 meters overall length, and 16 meters wide. When compared to the M class light cruiser which was to be 163 meters overall length it is realized that for destroyer dimensions they would have been extremely long ships. They would have been fairly fast at 37 to 40 knots. They would have had extreme range ( around 12,000 Nautical Miles ) at cruising speed. They were oversized to perform the mission of escorting larger ships and to recon ahead of the battle group. They were designed to carry on dual turret on the bow and two on the stern to facilitate a more strategic withdraw. They wanted to mount a catapult and 2 scout planes aboard the 1939 design, and possibly the 1940 design. To save weight they considered removing the torpedo armament, even though the ships would have been large enough to carry both. The ships could have been easily up armored because of their size. These ships would have been ideal for mine laying missions, as they could have carried between 50 to 80 mines onboard and more if needed directly for that kind of mission. It took me about 4 days to model out the hull. The top and side you can see how canoe looking the 1938 design appeared. These ships were to have 2 Man 6 cylinder engines that would provide propulsion for cruise and normal operations. A high pressure steam turbine would ad power for combat operations, or missions where they need speed. This meant that these ships would need to carry Fuel Oil, and Diesel, or carry an onboard refinery machinery, like Graff Spee did. Notice the 3 screw set up. The railing done, and getting ready for putting on the super structer and equipment.
  2. My friend who lives in Germany wants to play WoWS with me, who lives in the USA. He downloaded both EU and NA launchers, with separate accounts in each server; however, when he tries to launch the NA launcher, it tells him he needs to download EU, or something of the sort. What should he do in order to play on the NA servers?
  3. A friend of mine compiled most of the United States Navy Technical Mission to Japan from the now defunct Fischer-Tropsch Archive so that people can navigate it again in one location. https://pacificwararchive.wordpress.com/2018/04/21/reports-of-the-u-s-naval-technical-mission-to-japan-1945-1946/ He is also working on the European one now. https://pacificwararchive.wordpress.com/2018/04/21/records-of-the-u-s-naval-technical-mission-in-europe-1944-1947/ Edit: He has added a fair amount of the Pacific portions of the USSBS to the blog now. They were mostly pulled together from the Japan Air Raids website, but he made them far easier to pick through here. https://pacificwararchive.wordpress.com/2018/11/15/us-strategic-bombing-survey-pacific-war/ Edit 2: He is now working on the Japan Monographs. At first he will be filling in the Monographs that HyperWar doesn't already have up. https://pacificwararchive.wordpress.com/2019/01/27/japanese-monographs/

  5. Battle of Jutland We will try this on this next coming Friday on Nov 30th 11/30/18. 9:30-11:30PM US Eastern standard time , 8:30-10:30 PM US CENTRAL TIME, 7:30-9:30 PM US MOUNTAIN TIME, 6:30-7:30 PM US PACIFIC TIME , 11:30AM -1:30 PM in Sydney Australia 9:30 AM - 11:30 AM in Perth Australia.

Each team will have 2 commanders of the line one in the lead and one to the rear of each battle line. If one of the commanders is taken out of the battle, the ship next in line takes command as flag ship. Chapter 1- First Contact UK mission - The British will have their battlecruiser Division out and will try to eliminate all of the German battlecruiser fleet - chase them across the map, if you have to. Don't lose more than 4 battlecruisers in the engagement. If you get down to 4 battlecruisers or are engaged by the German High Seas Fleet, fall back to the map border. UK Ships - You will have 9 ships at your disposal. Since we don't have any battlecruisers for the UK other then the Hood, we will use 9 Ishizuchi as a stand-in. If you have a white camo, use that to cover the ship and put on a jutland banner. Like this picture V. Kaiserliche Marine Mission - The Germans will have their battlecruiser squadron scouting ahead while the main fleet stays behind in formation at spawn. If you come across the UK battlecruisers, engage them and take out 5 of their cruisers by luring then into the guns of the high seas fleet. Kaiserliche Marine Ships - Since we don't have any WW1 era German battlecruisers in here yet, so we will just use a combination of Konig alberts/ kaisers with A hull but upgraded engines with speed flags and Graf Spees that equal 5 battlecruisers as stand ins. Use of torpedoes is prohibited. Germany will also have 5-7 battleships of tiers 3-5 (preferably Konigs and Kaisers) as backup in formation for a trap so the battlecruisers can lure them in to the crossfire. Chapter 2 - The Grand Battle UK mission- The battlecruisers are on the retreat intercept the german fleet and engage them from a battle line and surround the german fleet and pumble them into submission. Attempt to sink the rest of the German navy before they can try to escape to the map border.

And 3 other types, being tier 2-3 cruisers and DDs for spotting and artillery support Torpedoes may only used in a fleet retreat and is limited to 1-2 reloads . Chapter 3 - The Night Battle UK mission- During a night battle, it is too dangerous for us to deploy our dreadnoughts due to the German’s superior night fighting equipment. Instead, you will command three destroyer flotillas, each led by a light cruiser. You will chase down the german fleet, your mission is to sink at least one battleship and damage at least five ships before the german fleet can make it to the other side of the map border. UK Ships - 9 Medea class DDs and 3 tier 2-3 Light Cruisers. Kaiserliche Marine Mission- German mission is to to break though the british destroyer flotillas- Try to not lose any battleships but a minimum of three battleships should make it to the safety of the map border. Use your escorts to help scout and protect yourselves from the British DDs. Kaiserliche Marine Ships- 6 German BBs a tier 3-5 with at least 3 Nassaus preferably and for the battleships escorts you can have any tier 2-3 german cruisers and tier 2-3 german dds you must have a minimum of 2 ship from both classes light cruisers and DDs.
  6. Hello! I thought this was an interesting question to pose to the community. As you guys know, the scuttling of the German High Seas Fleet at Scapa Flow was a great event in the waning hours of the First World War that eliminated a lot of warships. These ranged from little destroyers to grand battleships. For historical conjecture (I doubt this would've happened in real life), let's say that the Germans was allowed to maintain the ships that were heading to Scapa Flow in a disarmed state. Let's also say that the Nazi Party rises like it did in our timeline, but their new Kriegsmarine is bolstered by all of this old German equipment. If you were a German admiral looking at this fleet, what would you do with the ships? Would you scrap them all to make room for more advanced designs or would you upgrade them to help bolster the surface fleet? Also, how would keeping this fleet have affected German naval development during the Second World War? Here is a link to all the ships that were sunk at Scapa Flow during the scuttling: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scuttling_of_the_German_fleet_in_Scapa_Flow#In_captivity Thanks!
