  1. I really wanted to wait and see if Pigeon was going to bring back rewards for visiting museum ships, but my groupon was running out. So I went to visit the USS Hornet yesterday and had a pretty interesting trip, including a behind the scenes tour from a surprisingly generous and knowledgeable docent. I took some pictures in glorious 4k resolution if anyone is interested in seeing them (Except of the restricted areas. I didn't want to push my luck). The album can be viewed here. I also went to the USS Iowa back in December. If anyone is interested in those they can be found here.

  3. We should start a fundraiser for the USS Texas!

    Hello shipmates! I'm wondering if we can do a community fundraiser for the USS Texas. Over the last 30-40 years, she has fallen into disrepair and needs to be saved sooner then later! The USS Texas, is the only surviving super-dreadnought class battleship. She is a national landmark and nation engineering landmark. Her hull is leaking at an alarming rate and if nothing gets done about it, the state will scrap her. I know WG made a video about her a couple of years ago, but I'm wondering if WG will allow a community fundraiser? I was thinking that WG could start another USS Texas premium sale and donate the money from that to the museum. But its a race against time and sadly her time is running out.
  4. Just posting this as a Public Service Announcement. USS Orleck Naval Museum Board – Time is Running Out – Salvage Yard in the Ship’s Future
  5. USS Iowa visit (with pictures)

    Hello fellow captains! I was lucky enough to visit the USS Iowa a few days ago, and I've finally uploaded the pictures online. It was a wonderful experience, and I recommend for anybody to visit these museums. Hope you guys enjoy!
  6. USS Iowa Ship Tour Battle Simulation

    At the end of the tour of the USS Iowa, they have a theater set up with a high-resolution simulation of the Battle of Okinawa from the perspective of the ship's bridge. It was also made by none other than WG! Here is a video of the simulation my friend shot from his phone during the tour. The audio in the simulation was quite good. Apologies for the poor image quality. This is a video of the simulation someone else shot with better image quality, although it's from an older version of the simulator. Some of the explosions and effects are missing compared to the previous video. The audio isn't as good, but you can see the gunners pretty well.
  7. This post is of the JMSDF(Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force) Kure Museum located across the street from the Yamato Museum and the Yuushio-class Submarine Akishio(SS-579). As always: many pictures, much crashing. Enjoy!
