Is it just me or are the cloud shadows in port indicating hurricane speed winds-aloft? Take a look at London. I didn't notice this until 0.10.0.

You may very well have the Jet Stream winds of at least that velocity at height. Japan is known for winds up to 300 knots at 20000 feet and above creating problems for B29's You either spent a hour 5 miles from IP and got trashed sitting still trying to buck the jet or you zipped downwind at 600+ relative ground speed too fast for the Norden Bomb Sight to calculate the drop.

The best one I ever heard about the jet stream was a C-130 asking to drop to a lower altitude because their ground speed was 5 knots.

Red beans and rice, usually.

But yes, cloud movements like those in port should be accompanied by a much heavier sea state.

 a much heavier sea state is impossible in wows.

Ive got a carrier video somewhere where green waters ship on the very bridge above the empty flight deck.
