    Russian Navy Project 20386 Corvette

    Interesting proposed corvette. The first article in 2019 makes it sound amazing. The second article from November 2020 says it has not been started yet and might not be constructed like many of the concept models of Russian ships we have seen lately (i.e. Lider, Shtorm) https://www.rbth.com/science-and-tech/331004-inside-russias-new-merkuriy-corvette "There is no news about continued construction of project 20386 which is to be the backbone of Russian brown-water fleet. The Navy is likely waiting for the construction and trials of the Mercury only corvette to decide its fate." https://www.navyrecognition.com/index.php/news/defence-news/2020/november/9248-russia-resumes-construction-of-project-20380-20385-corvettes.html

    Swedish A26 Blekinge Class AIP Submarine

    New Swedish A26 Blekinge Class AIP Submarine. If it builds upon the technologies of the Swedish Gotland Class Submarine, this will be a very amazing non-nuclear submarine for countries to purchase. (More info here) http://www.hisutton.com/A26.html

    Well, it was a great thread, so let's be a bit more careful this time Looks like the UK has entered the ring for the US Frigate program. UK used: Type 26 Frigate! http://www.defensenews.com/digital-show-dailies/dsei/2017/09/14/bae-is-in-the-race-for-the-the-us-ffgx-with-its-type-26-frigate/ Considering the USN wants stuff they know will work, I'm not sure if they'll go for it. After all, none have been completed yet, so we've yet to see if any flaws appear. It would suck for the USN to build them and then find they've got a brand new fleet of ships with loads of issues à la the Type 45.
  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!

    Vice Admiral Samuel L. Gravely, Jr

    http://www.visionary...uel/gravely.jpg Vice Admiral Samuel L. Gravely United States Navy Years of Service : 1942 - 1980 http://tcigblog.file...uss-gravely.jpg Biography Samuel L. Gravely, Jr. was the first African American officer to become an admiral in the United States Navy. During his 38 years in the military, Gravely distinguished himself as a naval communications expert, war and peacetime ship captain, and eventually commander of the Third Fleet. Born on June 4, 1922 in Richmond, Virginia, Admiral Gravely came from modest roots. What he lacked in economic privilege he compensated for with an intense work ethic. Working and studying straight through the summers, he managed to finish high school at age fifteen and still had enough time to spare to work odd jobs to save money for college and care for his terminally ill mother. After Pearl Harbor was bombed, young Samuel Gravely decided to per-empt the draft and joined the Navy. Gravely enlisted in 1942 during the Navy’s “experiment” to allow African Americans to serve in roles other than mess men. The Admiral’s tireless work ethic and his exceptional intelligence soon paid off when he and two white colleagues became only 3 of 120 seamen to pass a test granting them the passage to officer training school. He soon became the first black officer in the Navy serving on the first all black manned Navy sea vessel. In spite of his achievements, he was frustrated with the racism and discrimination so prevalent in the Navy. Seeing no room for advancement, Gravely resigned from his post after the War. His absence from the armed services lasted only four years. In 1949, he answered a call from the Bureau of Naval Personnel and embarked upon a Naval career that would span 31 years. Steep and arduous, the Admiral’s ascent to the top of the naval career ladder was nothing short of groundbreaking. In addition to being the first African American to command a U.S. Navy warship, he was also the first to command an American warship under combat conditions, the first African American to command a major naval warship, the first African American to achieve the rank of admiral—eventually climbing as high as a three star admiral, another first for African Americans—and the first African American to command an American fleet. As a civilian, the Admiral Gravely divided his time between high-powered consulting, college scholarship development and speaking engagements around the world. He lived with his wife on their farm in Virginia until his death in October, 2004. Final Rank Vice Admiral Commands held USS Theodore E.
