Re: Current & Future Escorts - General Discussion

I think the point your missing there is that Artisan rotates so it shows it 1/4 sized smaller face to the all 4 1/4's surely making up for its smaller size. The size also allows it to be mounted far higher up allowing the radar horizon to be pushed further back, plus it uses less deck area and energy

Guys I have been on this forum since it started and on its preceding forum, I'm just thrilled by how the navy has advanced from what it was in 82 when I first touched and the amazingly powerful force it is now. I worked on aspects of a plane that has B in its title at a very early stage, a popular R...

Re: Project Crowsnest- status?

Here's a daft idea... Take 14 Wildcats from the Army, give them to the Navy (get them up to HM.2 but with dipping sonar modification). Freeing up some Merlin's... Give the Army 10 AW149's (less airframes, but more capable)... 20 more AW149's to the RAF (to replace Puma) until the Future Vertical Wh...

Re: Type 23 Frigate (Duke Class) (RN) [News Only]

A small finding. HMS Argyll, in many cases in its 6-month deployment to middle east, do not use "mush room cover" on its 32 CAMM . The flat top of the canister itself is directly seen in many cases. (all images from HMS Argyll Twitter) @Donald-san I have noticed this to on other Type 23's...

The guys that wired my yard for lights didn't use a tent. But then again, they didn't connect it to the mains until it stopped raining. Must be smarter than your average UK shipyard worker.
