@CoolPeach It's a nice ship. There's even a little plaque that marks where the surrender of Japan was signed.
Is this a Defender missile target?
Note to others: Wearing a red shirt here will place you in significant peril.
OH CRAP. @Mmdben
Aunt Ju's looking pretty, even in old age.
@Strikefighter04 Also, your authority over members was quite limited.
It was a rogue member who got Simplelandia in a war you never wanted.
I’m kinda curious as to how well it would fare against my old North Point.
I’d give it to this, since while neither ship has armor that can realistically hope to stop the other’s shells, this has bigger guns.
On second thought the Salem-class missile cruiser conversions would likely blow it out of the water on the basis of a large number of anti-shipping missiles. @Feanor
@engineer40k lol if you wanted a more American DD, here’s a simple way how:
1) Identify areas of the deck which are open.
2) Cram the biggest AA gun you can put there.
Dat landing gear tho...
@SledDriver What do you mean, "this is not a replica?"
Everyone knows that butterflies have air-to-ground missiles and plasma cannons. ;)
@Strikefighter04 Well you best ask your members as to who decided to declare war on us.
“Some bad things.”
Like literal, organized genocide that specifically targeted certain individuals because of race and religion.
“Some bad things.” @DarthAbhinav
Permission to modify?
@Chancey21 The hill-climbing abilities is mostly due to how SP handles motors. In order to give it a semblance of realistic acceleration on flatter terrains, the engine had to be tweaked.
I will be linking an unlisted stripped-down vehicle for those who want a Humvee that performs like a seal in the water, than a seal on land.
The HSLAM: My time has come.
Question: can the rear air-stair be deployed mid-flight? Just wondering.
@Zanedavid Thanks. It should be noted they tend to generate a lot of smoke once hit by something more potent than standard ammunition from an AK-47, ball ammo from anything 7.62mm NATO, or anything short of M995 from an M16.
Gotta give the devs credit for making me use what I learned in math class. @SnoWFLakE0s
I have no interest in supplying these vessels to non-IDA states. Carry on.
I thought they got Phantoms for awhile because the USAF was working out the bugs in the F-111. When the F-111s were delivered, the Phantoms were returned to the USAF. @Alta2809
That is true. As mentioned though, the North Point would likely die horribly if the action was in good visibility, in open seas, and where the North Point couldn’t simply run away. @BlazeInfinity
@BlazeInfinity It may have radar if that ball ahead of the main rangefinder is a radar unit, but it's likely a basic search-type or fire control radar if that's the case.
Well that was kind of the point of battlecruisers in the first place. Namely, as cruiser stompers.
The North Point does have radar that would allow it to simply lay smoke or dive into the nearest rain squall or patch of bad weather, flip on the radar aim/wallhacks, and deliver a hail of accurate 8” armor-piercing shells while the battlecruiser sits there wondering where the stream of 8” shells are coming from.
It also has a slight speed advantage, but that would mostly be useful to run away from a very lopsided fight. Which it may not be able to do, especially if it is a screening force as cruisers tend to be.
But if the North Point can’t find a suitable blob of cover or weather to obscure visibility but allow the use of superior radar-directed fire control to deliver the death of a thousand cuts, then the death of the North Point by 16” naval gun is all but assured.
@AerialFighterSnakes You'd have to craft that shotgun.
Also you'd need to get the gunpowder for the shotgun, and you get gunpowder from killing creepers.
@Dastin Vicky Jr.
Beautiful early/mid 20th century destroyer.
Looks reasonably capable too. Four 5" dual-purpose guns to destroy anything that floats or flies, eight torpedo tubes to give cruisers something to think about, and depth charges to give submarines something to think about. Even a few medium-caliber AA guns to dissuade all but the most kamikaze-minded pilots.
A destroyer of this size and firepower would be quite a good design for its time. A bit on the smaller side, but not something to be disregarded, and certainly capable of holding its own.
@GritAerospaceSolutionsLTD @Sonicandknuckles Neat.
glances at Aloha Airlines Flight 243
I think it's best we keep them in museums when they get too old.
Or scrap them, but that's a less honorable way to go I suppose.
My primary recommendation would be that the locations of the forward Mk 85 gun mount and the Mk 29 box launcher should be reversed. @AverroesIndustries
North Point: sees guns on this thing
NP: At least I have nuke shells.
@RailfanEthan Do you mean "Genji?"
It was based off the Brooklyn-class designs, with elements from the Cleveland, Baltimore, and New Orleans-classes.
Also by the time orbital bombers try to have its way with it, you’d have to deal with the far more powerful San Diego-class. @KerlonceauxIndustries
@Speedhunter The Interceptor is the older sis.
@Speedhunter She's the older sister.
But I do like the marked improvement in build quality.
Kudos to you.
@RocCrafter101 Nice build, but has one issue.
It's not the size of a standard container. And our pilots know what standard containers look like, because we use empty steel 20-foot containers for target practice all the time.
@RocCrafter101 On the other hand, this is indeed quite impressive.
@Carbonfox1 I'm not doing in Glen's head with this.
Much of the information here is propaganda made by Iridium officials attempting to be pushed as canon.
We have the 76mm for that. @JoshEraDix2345
