Its been a long time since "soon" was said by the developers..... so lets see if "soon" is actually soon or if they follow Blizzards definition. :wink:

On the flip side, the Halifax class frigates (criminally under armed) have almost zero command facilities. NATO designates them as the command vessel for escort task forces (mostly cause they aren't useful for much else) :?

Traditionally, all ships had the same command capabilities. Radios were quite easy to install and they more or less needed several officers with powerful banoculars to watch the battle unfold before them (or cross there fingers and pray real hard). It was a matter of prestige that decided what ship ...

Re: British BL 15" Mark 1 and 2 guns.

While the Hood and Vanguard had Mark 2 's which in VaS shoot to 33" but again in reality were good for 33000 meters. Yep thats the max range... unfortunately one of the reasons Battleships went into remission as viable weapon of war is because they could not exploit their maximum range with any deg...

Regarding aircraft speeds, I think in practice most non-fighter intercept missions will be carried out at a high subsonic cruise, usually at low altitude in the target area to avoid radar and SAMs. For naval air combat the Falklands proved this. So I think you can group most attack aircraft into ba...

I might have a solution for the fighters: You could halve the speed on all aircrafts (ball park figure) and rebalance some speeds thereafter since I think no sane pilot would go full speed when on an attack mission since it would drain fuel reserves dramatically (especially with full payload) and i...

Fighter Speeds: Is there any rule used to determine the speed of aircraft? Is speed supposed to be average cruising speed or the maximum capable?For example the Mig-23 has higher speed than the Mig-25 Foxbat. The Su-27 has higher speed than the 2 migs (although it probably has the highest cruising ...

I don't know of any online store that carries them... but believe me, its worth the wait. It will probable take about a month for air mail... depending on how tight Australias custom policies are.

Navwar is at the top of my list. If you live in North America the wait is well worth it because of the selection of models (I have yet to find a class of ship from the books not in there mini lists). If I wasn't on disability I would have many of their models for both the WWII game and the WWI game....
