USS Keeling "Greyhound"

7,057 MarisaKujo  8 days ago

-“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.”

The USS Keeling is a fictional Mahan-Class destroyer who is the star of C. S. Forester's The Good Shepherd. During her first patrol with Commander Krause, they managed to sunk multiple U-Boats and completed their mission.
Recently she came back in a motion picture with a Fletcher Class hull and was captained by an ex-Army Captain. But since he also owns a fishing boat at some point he did a remarkable job.
Well, I guess this is probably one of the first Mahan on site. I was doing this as a pet project and let's say...things got a bit out of control and here we are with a 4000 parts build.
To enjoy this build, Ocean mod is recomended
Here are some nice pictures

The 20/40/60m weapons are for the depth setting of the Depth Charges, just launch them and the charges will deploy. However, for your long-term health, it is advised that you don't use the 20-meter setting, tends to blow yourself up.

Scoring the kill

The "Common" Shell type is your standard HE shells

And the "AAC" Shell type is your anti-aircraft shells
All the side-mounted 20mms are WASD controlled, but the front one has auto-aim.

The Mark 15 kinetic rods

AG8 for lights, Throttle to full ahead, brake to reverse, and yaw to turn.
That's all captains, Good luck, and fair seas daze

Jervis? What Jervis.

    Her true identity (in terms of used for the movie) is actually the USS Kidd. She's currently enjoying flooding season in New Orleans since she gets to actually float half of the season.

    @WolfSpark Good Shepherd is actually a Free Book now available online. You can read it there.

    @MintLynx I never actually heard of Good Shepherd, and did some researching when I commented that, and apparently there’s nothing on it... The Mahan class I’ve actually never heard of.
    Kind of weird looking, kind of confused me with a British I, or A Class Destroyer
    also little note: I don’t like using wiki. Some of the facts and pics they use aren’t really accurate in certain cases

    @WolfSpark The Keeling from the book that the movie is based on is a Mahan, so this is in fact the Destroyer from the book. The movie used the Kidd (A Fletcher) because it was an actual world war 2 destroyer they were able to find and use as a Set.

    @WolfSpark The Good Shephard is set in 1942 and there is no USS Kidd then
    It is stated very clearly that she is a Mahan-Class destroyer
    There are no Mahan left around so they use the best alternative, that is the USS Kidd

    Bit of criticism on this,
    .
    Great build, possibly incorrect blueprint/model
    .
    I do believe that This isn’t the keeling from neither “Good Shepherd” or “Greyhound”
    .
    Due to lack of photographic evidence of the 1955 Good Shepherd destroyer’s pictures, or the movie version, it’s not easy to tell, but I watched the 2020 “Greyhound” and that isn’t what the newer version looks like either, because the newer movie uses a 1944/1945 Fletcher Class DD-445 USS Kidd which is one of the last to exist, which is what they shot the movie on.
