Second Hint?

 

This was not an accident, The FIRST time this happened, both ships served in active duty in the same navy for just over 13 months. 

 

For a third hint, He has had 9 Navy ships named in his honor ... that were launched, and two more that were not. However one was Lanched with Another name, the other canceled.

5th hint

 

The 2 pairs of ships that I am referring to, all 4 were combatants.

 

2 were the same "Type"(IE DD, DE, CA, CL, SS, CV CVW Troop transport) 

1 could be mistaken as being the same category of  ships as her earlier namesake

1 is used by 2 different services in Its home country's goverment

One is/was completely unlike the other3.

Next Hint? one time 2 ships were named in Honor of the same person, they were in the Same Class.

 

and yes, this was not a mistake.

 

the hull numbers were mirror images of eachother.

 

Note this kind of limits what ship they can be. For example 01 and 10, 02 and 20, and so on.

One of the othe ships is another class that can not be part of the game.

 

so 

 

4 ships named in honor of the same person were in service with another ship named in honor of the same person.

all 4 ships served the same nations navy

2 ships were the same class.

the names were always chosen knowing another ship existed honoring the same person. That country's navy must realy have liked that person. This has never caused confusion.

one ship can be mistaken for being the same type as one of the other ship types.

the hull number of the 2 of the 4 ships im refering to are mirror images of each other.. i.e. 01 and 10 or 23 and 32

two of the ships might show up sooner or later in game

one is a submarine

At least one is a ship that will not be in game.

I am a bit surprised no one got this.

 

 

 

 

CV 13 Benjamin Franklin. Named after.... well you probably already know who.....

CV 31 BonHomme Richard. Named after the First BonHomme Richard, she was a French warship gifted to .John Paul Jones who name for the ship was inspired by the book Les Maximes du Bonhomme Richard, you may have heard of it, its known in English as Poor Richards Almanac.....

 

oh to be accurate I goofed on on of the clues, 

LHD BonHomme Richard was laid down April 1995

SSBN Franklin was scraped August 1995
